I will disagree.Quote:
Go back and look at the conversations. You know I am right here. Average ticket price will probably jump around $10 to $85-90. Just like I have said many times.
How? Do you think the owner of the PSL is just going to give you the seats and not have you pay them back for the money they paid for it? Tell you what- Why don't you buy 4 of the 10K PSL's and use them for a few years, then give them up for nothing to someone else.Quote:
The SBLs are a one time fee. I do NOT have to pay them as a ticket owner. I can default on my tickets, wait a year or two until the $125 million cap is hit, and then get tickets again. And my average ticket price will never jump like you say it will.
Ridiculous? Are you that damn naive? How the hell is the stadium going to generate 1 BILLION. (That is BILLION) dollars of money to pay for this thing when the current dome, which is paid for, is losing money every year and has essentially depleted it's depreciation value in order to stay solvent when they aren't adding any extra seats? You cannot be serious to thing that revenue can be created and yet nothing is going to cost more? We are talking a hell of a lot more than 10% in additional operating expenses and debt payments.Quote:
You can't roll SBLs into the ticket price, and you certainly were NOT doing it before when you were making your ridiculous claims.
Seriously- The state and the team made the projections for the lottery too and guess what- they were wrong. Do you understand the difference between projections and reality? You also don't know how how these studies are conducted. Were they phrased " Your ticket prices are going to go up and if you are a family of 4 you will have to shell out an average of 10K just for the right to buy tickets added to the increased ticket prices"? If not then they were worthless.Quote:
BTW, the studies I referenced came both before AND after the legislation was signed. They were market studies done by BOTH the Vikings and the State to determine how much the market would support in ticket prices. But I am glad that you trust your gut more... Thank goodness that billion dollar investments are not made on guts though. I would prefer to see a little more research behind it.
