I have no problem with them including PS games, but to put BOTH games in the SAME package?

I think its smart from a marketing stand point. Think about most fans want Denver and Oakland games. Preseason games are the least attended, why not put your two best actually 3 with Green Bay with your two worst. I like it, heck I had it last year and I would have gladly took 2 preseason games if I got Oakland and Denver together.

PS is one of the reason not to....

They bundle PS with "premium" games....Dungver,Faiders, GB?

sounds like what we did for years....

I can not see anything but package A...not worth it. At least you could sell any of the games you can not make it to. You can not get a dime for the two pre-season games. Add the fact that the Raiders suck and all the games are in November, and I can not see much value in the B package.

It is dumb, but people are right that the Denver and Oakland games are "worth" a premium. Also, the other package includes two December games which seem to be less attended than the rest of the season. I'd definitely go for the A package, but I can see others going for B.

So you'd be willing to spend $280 on PS tickets just to go to the Donks and Raiders games?

You could get REALLY good seats to either of those games for that amount of money....

Carl has been ripping off dumb fans for 15 years at Arrowhead. What's to stop him from thinking the gene pool for people willing to spend their last buck on Chiefs tickets has completely evaporated? PT Peterson still is finding to dupe, there just aren't as many as there were before he put his 5 year plan in motion.

Exactly.

Hell, you can get tickets on Ebay for cheaper than what you'd spend on PS games....

I'm sorry, is Arrowhead not selling out anymore despite serious hikes in parking and ticket prices?

You could probably buy package B, attend both preseason games and sell the final 3 games for way more than you spent on the entire package.

Hmm.

What exactly are you folks doing? Scalpers?

Do you wander around the stadium? Are they usually better priced?

I go and pick up an extra ticket very cheap. If I strike out I just go home. I'm home by 12:30 and caught up to live action by the second quarter.

Are the scalpers usually just patrolling Arrowhead, and are the prices usually better priced?

Are they usually scalping blocks of 2-4 seats, or just one at a time?

Sorry for the Q's. Never done it before.

The scalpers "patrol" but they really like to hang out in the NW corner where buses drop. That way they hit up people who are selling their extra tickets and people who are buying. You can get blocks but it's subject to whatever they've managed to purchase. It's a whole lot easier to get a single though. I usually bought a single and went and sat with buddies.

If wait for kickoff people will just want them for some value.

I can easily make money off the preseason games if I want. Alot of people I know will go to any Chiefs game they can get their hands on.
