As much as the Bills can sucker out of wimps like @mead107 and @BringBackFergy  No need for real men to sit there. 

I've decided not to re-new my tix. I can watch Sunday Ticket and attend a few games here and there. Was thinking of finding someone who wants to partner up on my club seats but not sure that would work either (have to coordinate splitting the cost, Bills Bucks card, what if there's a Playoff game, etc)

Hosting a playoff game next year, or two?

I can't blame you for that decision, it really hard when you do not live in town..or at least within a 2 hr drive. I am sure if the last 3 years tickets had not been practically unsellable after Halloween, the decision would be easier.

True. Look at it this way, I may have been the curse all along. Maybe now they start winning home playoff games.

i think about it as well. I mean the last 5 years have basically been ( from a ticket price perspective)

 

Opener and Pats Game= 1.5X Season Ticket Price(STP)

2 other games before Halloween= 1.25 STP

Games in Nov=40% below STP

December games= 75% below ..

 

If you go to only the opener and game in November...way better buying ala carte...

 

If they make the playoffs...ya eat the 1.5 again..

....imagine the increases and PSL's to fund a new stadium?..........what then do you folks do?.......

 

My answer is....it depends.  I could hack a $5K PSL for 2 seats, IF I didn't have to pay more than $1500 a seat/year inside the 30s in the lower level.  If those seats are above that price, I'm probably out completely.

I ate 8 of my 10 tickets for the jags game this past year 🤦🏻‍♂️. Not to mention the beating I took on the December games. I’m renewing, but my number is going down.

...don't blame you.....median household incomes for Buffalo and Rochester are around $31,500/yr....US average is $53,480.....so $5K for two seats is 16% of median WNY income or roughly 9% of US average.....how many households could afford the extra tariff to keep season tix base in the 45,000-50,000+ range?......OR....how many could afford to forfeit those extra dollars as outlined below?......

 

"This holder can sell the seat license to someone else if they no longer wish to purchase season tickets.[1]However, if the seat license holder chooses not to sell the seat licenses and does not renew the season tickets, the holder forfeits the license back to the team. Most seat licenses are valid for as long as the team plays in the current venue. "
