  2. Can someone tell me how is it that ticket prices for STHs are going UP after this turd of a season?

    • For me it’s like $.50/game so I have no issues. I’m guessing it’s going up more in most other areas of the stadium. The $25 processing fee is the one that irks me.

  3. Andy Muenz says:

    Union will probably win tonight 0-3 (with Bedoya scoring in Toronto as always) and then go out and stink up Talen Energy Stadium Saturday and lose to Atlanta.
