  1. Was it really an excellent performance though? If we wont that, would any of use really have jumped back on the playoff bandwagon?

    • Nope. with 3 points, this was a match where youth (Elliott, Yaro, Wijnaldum, Fafa, Najem, Epps, Rosenberry all made appearances) would’ve triumphed and be the salve for “the future” and “next season.” that didn’t happen. Peter Andrews’ article on regression makes this more evident. oh well.

  2. Season ticket renewals are available. Looks like they’ve put 127 on a separate price level from 126 & 128 – $2 more per ticket. In the past they were the same.

    • Where are you seeing that?

      • Andy Muenz says:

        When I click on the link that they sent me they have a huge webpage on renewal info and if I scroll down long enough it has a picture of the stadium with prices for each section.

    • OneManWolfpack says:

      Dammit Andy I’m in 127 too… I’m already on the fence about renewing for a full season… this does not make me happy

      • Andy Muenz says:

        I figure that if I keep renewing eventually I’ll win “Fan of the Year” by default…(or at least when I call and ask what time the game is they’ll ask what time I can get there).

  3. Just Rob f/k/a Rob127 says:

    Never mind Fan of the year. Pretty soon they’re going to drag you out of your seat to play.
