Cialis daily After the news broke yesterday about the NY Mets Third Annual Adjustment of Ticket Prices, cialis daily I got an e-mail inviting me to a conference call with Mets Executive VP of Business Operation, cialis daily David Howard to ask questions about the new dynamic pricing on Mets tickets. Cialis daily As most of you know, cialis daily I’m not a fan of Howard’s and from what I hear the feeling is mutual. Cialis daily After last night’s conference call nothing has change in our relationship.

Cialis daily Howard started the call by reiterating what was in the press release where the organization has scraped its Platinum, cialis daily Gold, cialis daily Silver, cialis daily Tin Can tier pricing to a new pricing program where Mets tickets will be priced like a commodity. Cialis daily Just like gold, cialis daily silver and pork bellies (the Skill Sets have really morphed into the Duke brothers   ) the price of a Mets ticket will now be set by market demand, cialis daily however there is one caveat, cialis daily there is a minimum price a ticket will go for and it will be what a season ticket holder paid for their ticket, cialis daily which is fair as the organization is protecting its best customer. Cialis daily Ah, cialis daily  but this being the Mets there always a “read the fine print” moment  and in this case it’s giving season ticket holders a deadline of November 7th to make a payment to commit to 2012 season tickets. Cialis daily This is a full  month earlier than usual and as Howard Megdal points out right at the time teams can have exclusive negotiating rights with its own free agents.  The Mets fan cynic in me says this means that there is no way the club will resign Jose Reyes and  they want to make sure those who hold season tickets  make an early commitments  before they can decide if a Reyes-less Mets team is one they want to invest their discretionary income.

Cialis daily I’m not a season ticket holder but I did at one time buy partial plans but with different commitments and such, cialis daily I decided to buy game tickets when I know I’m free to go to games. Cialis daily So under this plan I will have to play Russian Roulette Mets style to buy my tickets. Cialis daily The price of tickets will vary as to who the opponent is and if the team is in contention or an also ran. Cialis daily So a seat for a game against the San Diego Padres on a Monday night in September will  a whole lot less than a game against the Highlanders on a June Friday night. Cialis daily  Classic supply and demand.

Cialis daily The question I posed to Howard was about all the seats with no ass’s in them behind home plate and how watching the current post season games from Citizen Bank Park, cialis daily Comerica Park and Rangers Ballpark where there are real good old fashion baseball seats with fans in them as opposed to Citi Field where fans would rather sip Chardonnay and talk about how happy they are that the financial intuition they work for is sucking the country’s economy dry, cialis daily than watch a baseball game. Cialis daily So courtesy of Amazin’ Avenue, cialis daily who has done a fantastic job of transcribing the conference call (a big tip of the Mets cap to Chris McShanne and James Kannengieser )  here is my question and Howard’ response:

Cialis daily Steve Keane, cialis daily Ed Kranepool Society: This is the 3rd year in a row that the organization has revamped its ticket program and it seems like the organization has a problem reading its fan base. Cialis daily Watching these postseason games, cialis daily especially games at Citizens Bank Ballpark, cialis daily Comerica and Arlington, cialis daily you see the seats behind home plate are regular stadium seats, cialis daily whereas at Citi Field they have these big expensive luxury seats. Cialis daily Has there ever been any thought of taking those seats out by the Champions Club, cialis daily and putting in seats where fans will actually sit in those seats during games.

Cialis daily  

Cialis daily DH: The Champions Club is behind home plate but not immediately behind home plate on the field level. Cialis daily It’s actually technically off of the field level concourse. Cialis daily They sit above the Sterling Seats. Cialis daily With regards to the Champions Club in particular, cialis daily we are actually changing that club and making it an all-inclusive club. Cialis daily While the prices are essentially remaining constant, cialis daily there is going to be complimentary food and non-alcoholic beverages served.

Cialis daily  

Cialis daily I think in regards to the Delta Club, cialis daily which is the club that’s on camera from the center field view during games, cialis daily those are upholstered theater-style seats. Cialis daily They are very comfortable. Cialis daily They are a premium seat. Cialis daily They are basically sold out. Cialis daily Again, cialis daily you may not see people sitting in those seats all the time. Cialis daily They may be in the club, cialis daily they may be in the back, cialis daily they may not be there. Cialis daily Those seats are sold, cialis daily so we don’t have any plans at this point to change those. Cialis daily What happens is that the team starts to win more, cialis daily it gets more exciting; people will be in those seats on an increased basis.

Cialis daily So in essence, cialis daily who gives a shit if someone is sitting in the seats, cialis daily THEY’RE PAID FOR!!!! And they are sold out (I guess those were the tickets that sold like “hotcakes” last season) Howard’s thinking is we can get the corporate suit here to wine and dine during games but it’s you annoying Mets fans with your rent and mortgages and families to take care of and on top of that insisting on having a winning team that we need to buy tickets.  There has to be some bloodline between David Howard and M.Donald Grant .
