Re: Half-season tickets

the game day experience is very weak and has been for years. almost zero energy in the bldg. I could go on about all of the dumb $hi* they do (like the chili promo) but WTF is the point. hopefully the marketing people are giving each other high-fives and slaps on the back because it is all a pile of...

Re: Half-season tickets

I don't have a problem with the owners not being here. I would be surprised if they even have any interest in the Sabres anymore. but you would think there would be SOME face of the org visible to the fans. Nope. They had Rob Kopacz who was a no-show. Then they got Rob Minter who evidently stays in ...

Re: Half-season tickets

FWIW when I was talking to the rep I did name drop Donner and told him the connection to the fans between him and today's org is night and day. I also reiterated (on a Wednesday night to boot...mostly empty arena) that I didn't understand the rationale for them making it so hard for STHs. it's almos...

Half-season tickets

Was talking to an Amerks rep last night and he confirmed the idea of them selecting your half-season package might be a thing. What I was told is the person behind this awesome idea is considering two options: first half or second half of the season. There will be some flexibility about changing tic...

Re: Wednesday Home Games

there needs to be some winning. and I'm talking playoff series level winning. the stink of all of the bad years has yet to wear off. friends or co-workers who are casual fans continue to ask me if they are still bad. so that's the perception out there.

Re: Season Ticket Pick Up

for those that remember, it wasn't too far in the past when they were trying to get rid of half-season tickets. it got announced and the response was so bad they had to walk it back immediately and act as if it hadn't happened. knowing how this org completely blows it on fan experience, I would not ...

Re: Season Ticket Pick Up

I am proud to report that I parked right in front. Went in the arena got my tickets. What's with the Amerks lanyards with the name tags? We have to wear those stupid f***in things to get in the SEASON TICKET HOLDERS entrance 15 minute early? I don't have my tickets yet. what is this name tag thing?...

Re: Season Ticket Pick Up

I talked to the director of ticket sales. Wait till next year. He told me that the partial season ticket people will have their 19 games selected for them (the most popular 19 they feel). Then if you don’t want the game they selected you have to switch it for one you want. How asinine... if they do...

Re: Season Ticket Pick Up

This experience just confirms what I have said before that they need to introduce paperless tickets AND have an online account where you can login to take care of these matters. A login portal page could have all of this on it.

Good thing I suggested this to them back in 2013.
