Got a call from my season ticket rep yesterday

Recommended Posts

My sister nominated me for Season Ticket Member of the Month/Game and I won for the month of July!

 

I'll be upgraded to club seats for a game, get some Bills swag, and have a story about my awesomeness on BuffaloBills.com. 

 

WOOT!

 

So have somebody nominate you!  https://buffalobills.formstack.com/forms/season_ticket_member_nominations

Some guys have all the luck.  Didn't you get to go to the Draft too?

 

I guess I have to somehow break the board for these good things to happen to me.  😛

Being known for something sure helps :)

 

(I think I have kinda earned it tho...)

 I said this many many times at the Fan Advisory Board.  It's not just what people are spending now, but what they've done over years of fandom that should be rewarded.  Seniority should be for more than playoff ticket lottery.

All I ever got was a warning letter because the person who bought my ticket passed out drunk and was quickly escorted out.

 

i just show the top half of the warning to make people think I was a badass at a game needing punishment

Not that I want to take any of these away from you, but how do YOU always end up with this stuff? The draft, being on the fan board, being invited to the Rex/Jim Big Tree photo shoot, there are others I'm forgetting/dont know about I'm sure.

 

Happy and excited for you, but what's the secret? Is it just that no one else knows about these things to enter?

 

Enjoy!

100% this.  My father (owner of a company but in his name)  has held 16 season tickets since 1975. I shudder to think what adding all that money up (with play off tix)  in today's dollars would be worth.

Enjoy!

It actually started with an email, me expressing my displeasure over how one of those ill-fated rewards programs was handled.  The guy who ran the program asked if he could call me to talk about it.  We ended up talking for at least half an hour about a range of topics, which he later called the most constructive discussion he ever had with a season ticket holder.  One thing I suggested was a fan council to run these kinds of things by so they know if something they are thinking of doing is something fans want and that it’s done correctly.  He asked if I would want to participate if they did such a thing which of course I said I did.  This is how the Fan Advisory Board was born and how I got on it without having to apply.

 

Being on that board got me known to many in the front office.  I did the radio gig and got to know Murph from that.  They liked my contributions to the FAB and how I got input and feedback from TBD.

 

After my 2 years on the FAB was up I continued to stay in touch with the people I met, many of whom had moved up the ranks during that time.  I would let them know what I felt was working and what wasn’t.

 

They know all I do to support the team - the road trips, the social media advocacy.  And they appreciate it.  Do I get special treatment?  I don’t know -  I entered a contest to get the draft tickets.  I was nominated for this thing.  The people doing the choosing might recognize my name and help, but I am quite sure I have earned all I’ve gotten.  The Rex Ryan photo shoot was this same guy calling me saying it was happening and would I be interested - they needed fans for the background.  

 

So so my advice is always to get to know your ticket rep and anyone else in the front office.  Be memorable.  Stay in contact and add some value to the relationship from your side.

That's all great - but how do we get rid of the train horn?

I would also guess that delivery is important.  It's like any other facet of life - it's easy to point out what's wrong; but unless you're bringing a possible solution to the table along with your complaint, all you're doing is bitching.

You deserved the recognition for the constructive way you have expressed yourself on behalf of the paying customers. I'm sure there are plenty of people who have the same thoughts you have with respect to how the fans should be treated. What sets you apart is that your interaction with the organization is highly regarded because of the intelligent and diplomatic way you conduct yourself. You deserve to be saluted! :thumbsup:

it is real easy - show up in a red, white and royal blue panda suit at a game and become instantly recognizable.

I got free club seats once. Being in a clean restroom at the Ralph was like when the Wizard Of Oz got color.

It'll be a game when they have room in a club for us.

@mead107, we'll have to warn the Club reps about letting this guy in.
