Held the same season football tickets for many years. I'm laid off work and have lost my tickets because someone paid extra money that I just don't have. Marshall is not loyal to those of us that have been loyal to Marshall.

"I don't have the money to buy something and the seller won't give it to me anyways, even though I've purchased it before. And now someone who has enough money has purchased what I wanted and this makes me angry."

So how would you pay for the tickets? They can't hold them when there are people who have the money and are ready to buy...
Don't worry, you can sit with me in the end zone!!!

Depending on where you sit, the reseating plan forced many long time season ticket holders to pay hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars over ticket price to retain rights to repurchase their same set of seats. It's not the price of the seats that's the issue, it's the new surcharge applied to them. If there were a high demand for seats, I could understand taxing the supply this way to squeeze some bucks, but since there's not it simply further alienates an aging fan base. Beyond that, some are simply pulling back other donations they make to the university to cover this tax. Others are simply giving up their tickets and sitting in cheaper seats, paying less money. If that is the rule instead of the exception the whole thing is a wash, except for the part where important donors and ticket holders are pissed at having their wallets fleeced.

Making the supply more expensive when the demand is low makes little sense. Reasons need to be given for people to attend the games, instead of more reasons not to come.

The bigger question is why someone would pay more when there are SO many seats available. I have been to many games and there were TONS of empty seats.

You set in the same seats for many years with your old friends and you make new friends then Marshall gets greedy and has all our seats open to the highest bidder. Our new seats are all separated and we are mad as hell.

I see. I agree with you, there's no reason for them to do that. The market isnt that competitive in this instance.

I could be wrong, but I do believe Marshall makes more money from the parking spots used for tailgating.

People invest their time,money and heart to support players that come in here from all over the US.This does not make sense to me but apparently people do enjoy it and this is the thanks they get.We are Marshall is the famous cheer that goes out.The next time you hear that think about who is Marshall.

I having been donating $100 to Big Green for twenty years. I raised it to $150 this year and hot 4 great seats. This pushed my points up so I bid early. Whoever had my seats should have donated at least the minimum, but were too cheap. Sorry
