Nearly 1,200 Saints fans are losing their season tickets

Nearly 1,200 Saints fans are losing their season tickets
Posted by Mike Florio on March 19, 2010 6:30 PM ET

For nearly 1,200 fans of the defending Super Bowl champions, the powers-that-be are paving paradise, and putting up a press box.

According to WWL-TV, three sections of seats are being removed from the Superdome for construction of a new press box. The old press box is being converted into 16 new luxury suites, and the new press box is knocking out 1,200 seats.

The Saints began calling the affected customers this week to break the news.

Though they'll move to the front of the 50,000-person waiting list, the 1,200 fans will be on the outside looking in until 1,200 people give up their seats.

"Coming off of how successful this team was and the way this team has really woven into this city's fabric, the people really got behind this franchise during this season and to say you can't come back next year to watch, that's just going to be crushing and there's no real great way to spin it," Roland Gau, consumer behavior professor at Tulane University, told WWL-TV.

Here's hoping that the Saints at least find a way to get the 1,200 affected fans into the Superdome on the evening of September 9, when the Who Dats will be celebrating their first-ever NFL title.

Then again, they can always tune in to Paul Allen, Pete Bercich, and their special guest on the Vikings Radio Network.

It's hard for me to feel sorry for any fan of a team that just won the Super Bowl.

Since it's probably a safe bet that any new seats these people would be able to get would be more expensive... they should be allowed to pay one season of their old price to "try out the new seats".

Each of them should get a free pass to crash a new luxury suite of his choice to start a food fight.

Thats almost a 100 fans per luxury box.

Considering Each ticket = $50 or so that's $5,000 per game per box to break even and then you've pissed off a shit pile of fans. $5,000 a game for a box and then they have to make up eating for 100 people? So probably $10,000 a game wow!
