    Are the Rooneys too greedy?

    Now the Rooneys are raising ticket prices again, after two awful 8-8 seasons.

    Oh, but keep your eye on the shell game: Art 2 said they are lowering prices on pre-season games, so should we feel happy?

    Well, do the math. Lower prices on 2 games, increase the prices on 8 games, and what do you end up with?

    Not fooling me, Rooneys.

    Also, did you know we have to pay among he highest beer prices per once in the country?

    That's BS. Why do the Rooneys have to squeeze their fans so badly? When is enough enough?

    That is abusive to the common man.

    Trust me: We are going to begin to see empty seats. It's coming.

    It's an average increase of 3.5%, so it's not as if tickets are suddenly doubling in price. If you could afford $100 seats before, you likely will be able to afford $103.50 seats now. If you could afford $200 seats before, you can likely afford $207 seats now. They've been the same price for last two seasons, so I'm not shocked by slight market-correction uptick in my season ticket prices. I'm also quite glad for the variable pricing adjustment, possibly making it easier for me to re-sell preseason game tix if I am not able to go.

    Art II is all about the money. Times are changing boys.

    Find a cheaper product then, like Pitt Panther tickets for example.

    Being a person of "limited cash flow" I can understand the issues. But know one said the product would be cheap only that it's worth it!

    I don't live any where near the area, so it doesn't impact me. And the last 5-6 games I did attend I had free luxury box seats, so, again, it doesn't impact me. That being said, I am sick of the middle class being abused and gutted. Sure, it only went up 3.5% you can say, but add in how much parking and beer costs, and Rooneys are being too greedy. What's a beer cost now? 10 bucks? Highway robbery. Just wait until more empty seats start showing up. Families can't afford to attend games. Most are realizing watching the game on a 60" HD TV makes more sense all the way around.
