    Actually it's not. My buddy has three seats along with my two. He often sells his three seats -- sometimes I get them for friends of mine. The deal has always been neither of us ever pays each other for preseason. The tickets have no value. For regular season, the price is face value. So he now gets more for his tickets than he used to under the old structure.

    The market starts with face value. If you choose to give people a discount off of that, that's on you.

    For the first 10
    Minutes of the playoff game I couldnít even hear myself yelling. The place was electric. The bank is back.

    You agreed to sell the tickets for a certain price. Bid you felt it was worth more you should have sold it for more or kept it. The fact that the team I creasing the face value on their regular season tickets didnít help you raise your sale price is your fault not theirs.

    And I repeat, the fact anyone ever paid you a dime for a preseason ticket is flabbergasting to me, i have personally never even heard of anyone asking money for them. They are the tax paid to secure your seats. This pricing strategy was designed to help people like you and absolutely should have. I would suggest altering your pricing strategy so it does not. Our recent success will likely help you get back over face value again.

    Preseason games are not the tax, PSLs were that tax. I can't alter the prices if the market doesnt dictate that I can. The secondary market tells you what the actual market is, and tickets are still available under face value there for most games!

    Sure I can, If I got more money before the change and less since, It's very simple to equate that loss as an indirect price increase.

    Except that you are missing the whole point that the team got stale and boring and attendance went in Th e shitter for a few years.

    That 3rd down that forced the delay of game was the loudest I've ever heard M&T. Would like to hear if others say the same...

    It was pretty loud. Much louder than anything in recent memory. But it used to be that loud every time Ray Lewis came out of the tunnel. Games like the Sunday night in 2010 vs the Steelers it was that loud all game long.

    But yeah, this is the first time in a long time that my ears were still ringing when I got home. Kudos!

    Not the loudest it's ever been (nothing has ever come close to Heap's winning TD against San Diego in 2006), but definitely close to it. Down on the sidelines, I could FEEL the sound pressure in my ears. The only other time I remember that happening was the aforementioned Heap TD. I could still hear myself screaming 2 weeks ago - I could not do that in the other game.

    Now, if only we all could bring that intensity every week!

    Been there for 17 years and it was the loudest I've heard it. I was there for the Heap/SD game and that was always my answer previously to loudest I'd ever heard it, but I think the first Titans drive of the playoff game was louder. Of course, it's been over a decade since that game, so it could be recency bias. but my ears were actually hurting and they've never hurt during or after a game. It was cool. Shame the team didn't give us reason to stay that way throughout.

    I know the decibel reader they put up on the video boards is of dubious accuracy, but it was jumping between 115 and 120 db during that drive. The rest of the season it usually topped out around 102 at the most.

    The play was not the #1 reason for the attendance drop!, in the ))'s there were several seasons where the play was boring and every seat was still filled

    That decibel reader is just a prop, not an actual gauge. I would like to see an actual reading during the Anthem, The "O" was one of the loudest I can remember

    Yeah, the fact that they display it often while blasting music over the loudspeakers kinda tells you itís BS.
