Re: Preseason fee
The solution is to charge half price for the preseason tickets and either the owner, players or other staff needs to eat the other half. Of course that won't happen because we all got in line day one to buy the PSl and buy the season tickets every year. It is as much our fault as the Ravens but when it comes down to it, the preseason is just half the product as a regular season.
Ownership finds the rational to charge twice as much for playoff games so why not charge half as much for preseson games? Seems to make sense to me but as is true across the board in pro sports, the fan always is forced to open the wallet not the team.
