10 things about selling my preseason tickets on CP

10. Training camp starts in a couple of weeks and the football buzz is growing. How quickly we all forget that Andy & Alex have served us long suffering Chiefs fans with two of the most epic playoff collapses of all time. Yet, hope springs eternal, and now another season is about to begin. Joey Chuckles asked me for a "Ten Things" thread about selling pre-season tickets here on the CP. OK, for my own off season OTA, I'll serve it up.

9. For the past four or five years, I've just refused to go to pre-season games because I don't think its right for the NFL to charge regular season prices for pre-season games. Games one and four are the worst. In game one, teams are evaluating early cuts, so the scrubs play a lot. By game four the rosters are pretty much set except for third string backups and special teams players, and nobody wants to risk an injury right before the season begins. So I understand why people would turn their nose up at wanting to buy games one and four. As Spott said in the thread, why pay full price to have your soul ripped out in pre-season? I agree. Unfortunately, the NFL makes the rules, and as FlaChief58 said, no courtesy of a reach around. If you want the regular season, you have to pay pre-season prices. But there is a special circumstance here. The seats. The seats are awesome.

8. The last few years I've offered my fellow fans on the CP first crack at these seats. Some of you like Wazu and Scho63 have had the experience of sitting in these seats. You get to see a lot of stuff that other fans don't see, and especially a TV audience doesn't see. You can hear the players and coaches talking. You can see who's hurt and how bad. And like Rain Man said, you can check out the Cheerleaders. Hey guys, in hot weather they don't wear much. And when the game starts, they come right up the tunnel under the seats. You can see how many are legit, and how many are patched up with Bondo.

7. Simply Red and Pablo seem to have rape fantasies. Lone Wolf wants to be kicked in the nuts. Prison Bitch has a thing about the Boys Club of Raytown. NTTAWWT. Tell ya what fellas, next year I'll consider a for them...

6. I guess the good news is, there's very little chance we'll see a Tyler Palko appearance in either game. And even though Mahomes is not technically a rookie, he'll probably play a bit more than somebody like (for example) Aaron Rodgers.

5. TLO is a low ballin' mofo. $50? That won't even get you a handie on Independence Avenue! Both sets of tickets sold for face value; one here on CP and the other on the NFL Exchange. If the CPer who bought the Texans game wants to talk about it afterwards, that's up to him. If he wants to remain anonymous so you pinheads don't skewer him, that's OK too. I just hope he has a great time and enjoys the experience.

4. Lewdog is right "F ME for offering tickets to the CP first." What was I thinking?? I been on the CP for around 15 years now. I like the CP because it's not looking through Chiefs Rose Colored glasses like Arrowhead Pride. And we have poop threads. And the Florida News thread. And the "Would you pork Kathy Bates" thread. I'm easily entertained. But as an editorial comment, it seems like a faction of this board gets its jollies by sharp shooting or finding fault with just about everything. We've lost a lot of members because of it. Can't we all be nicer to each other?

3. Dartgod is a very good mod. I don't think the mods get enough credit around here. They are underappreciated, and I'd like to give them a shout out for the service they provide all of us CPers. Thanks guys, appreciate you.

2. The Chiefs no longer provide a way to print out paper tickets from a PDF. They want everybody to show a code on a smart phone. But what if you're off the grid and don't have a smart phone? It's not easy. I think you should still be able to get actual tickets, either a traditional ticket or a PDF printout, but that's just me.

1. I don't know if I'll have any regular season games available this year or not, but if I do, I'll think about listing them here first. After this pre-season experience, I don't know if its worth putting up with the nattering nabobs of negativity. Because of my health -which is not real good- I don't do freezing cold weather very well any more. And as usual, we have a couple cold weather games on the schedule. We'll see when the time comes. Now, everybody hit the showers and enjoy the last couple weeks until we're all due in St. Joe!

Didn't the "emergency" thread give you hope for a kinder gentler chiefsplanet you long for? Your #9 "special circumstance" sales pitch is comical but your casino cash is impressive! So you don't think it's right for the NFL to charge regular season prices for pre-season games but It's OK when you do it.

They should at least sell game 4 tickets at half price.

I didn't know you were selling your preseason tickets. Had I known I would have put in a bid. Where were you doing this?

Congrats on selling the tickets George!

I figured someone would snag them at full price eventually.

The general public isn’t nearly as snarky and cynical about the Chiefs as the typical CP poster

Well, he wasn't asking for bids. He was asking for full price. I both understand why he'd ask for such a thing and why many people would scoff at it. It is what it is.

When you can buy a ticket to either of these pre-season games at ARROWHEAD for under $10 on StubHub why would anybody want to pay face value whatever the "special circumstance" is?

As George mentioned in the OP, you're not buying tickets to the game, you're buying tickets to sit directly behind the Chiefs bench, have some level of interaction with the players, etc. It's not for me, mind you, but if I had a 5-year-old kid or something and wanted to get him into the game of football, I can't think of a better way than meeting players up close like that.

Again, I understand why many people would just say "**** that," but I also understand why, in the right circumstances, paying face value would be more than worth it for someone.

You canít buy the kind of seats he has for $10. Dude paid full price so heís asking what he paid for. Why should he subsidize someone? You want him to pay for a beer and a dog while heís at it? Heís not making a nickel of profit and heís offering seats that 99% of fans will never get to sit in.

Hey George..out of curiosity, how many seats do you have? I would absolutely pay for your seats if you don’t want to attend one of the December games.
