PSL Feedback For New Stadium


 Share

Recommended Posts

My issue is this - We gave Billionaire owners $850,000,000 of OUR money to build THEIR stadium, now they want PSL money and that is "understandable"? Bull****, I gave at the office.  I donated to the cause every paycheck. They can take their PSL's and stick them in their nether regions.

Agreed. The retort is technically the funds will be captured for 850mil given over 20 years and tax income etc... yea its BS. Buffalo for 20 years now has escaped most of the money BS the league does just to attend a game but our day has unfortunately come. I just hope it is rational and fair which is not saying much but also a stretch with billionaires.

PSLs are a scam, much like our tax dollars being used to build privately owned corporate infrastructure, that folk spin it as being anything else is really quite sad.

It is why Id rather just say its a ticket tax to help fund the stadium and walk away. When they try to list the PSL perks it all feels like BS

If prices are anywhere near that the stadium will be empty.

Heres what we do.  We get rid of psl's altogether.

 

Let's say the PSL revenue needs to be $300 million dollars.  Erie County runs a special lottery where half goes to the winner, the other half towards the $300 million.    Once the $300 million is reached this lottery would end or future proceeds going towards some sort of charity.  EVERYONE WINS!

 

BOOM!  

 

The Bills could do a special 50/50 drawing just like at the games.  Weekly or whatever.

 

I like the idea in concept, but lotteries are evil things that prey on the poor.

 

50/50 drawing in the stadium though sounds like a good idea, but 8 games a year for 10 years is 80 games to get $200m... you'd need to raise $2.5m per game! Oh and you had said $300m!

 

You'd need an actual lottery, which again are evil evil things...not against gambling, I'm against deluding people through intentional and targeted marketing, who only have $5 a week extra maybe, that they could win the lottery. That should go in the bank, not a lottery, where the heat from the cash would be more valuable than the ticket if they just lit their cash on fire. There are some cool banks that are doing cool things like that actually in terms of ethical lotteries.

 

/rant and yes I'm a blast at parties!

 

Also, I always put 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 on my lottery tickets...before you tell me I'm nuts, it's just as likely that comes up as any other combination. Stop playing the lottery people, it's a scam.

I was literally contacted by a reporter for the Buffalo News and asked if I was willing to speak for five minutes which I said ok to. This is a pretty big deal for many fans with PSLs that I took as seriously as I could and hoped I represented their thoughts in that light. I could give two craps about any 15 mins, I do care that Bills fans thoughts come through and I represented them in a decent level.

Why not just share your opinions as an individual? Do you really feel it necessary to take on the mantle of representing what you think 30 or 40 thousand other people think?  And you feel the need to apologize to the people who may not agree with you and never asked you to represent them in the first place? Some people might agree with you, some might not. Who cares, just state your case as you see it, and maybe the validity of your argument will influence others.

In this case he was asked and presented his own opinion 

No, he actually stated he presented the opinion he thinks other potential PSL holders will hold, and then apologized to all the people he decided to try to represent without their consent to the extent that they don't agree with him.

First off, great GIF. But no, I came to this thread to read his opinion and got told he was apologizing in case he didn't represent my opinion accurately. But I don't recall asking him to represent my opinion on anything, so why is he apologizing?

It's not the pegulas stadium 

 

It'll be owned by NYS and Erie county owns the current one

The article will be read by a lot of people and as such it does represent the view of the fanbase. I do not expect consensus that everyone will agree with my perspective but being asked as I was I hope I was able to express the feelings of many Bills fans on something that is an extremely sensitive topic. My apology is if what I said went against the grain or didn't capture others view points. If you are that far dense to not understand that and current wait and see period with PSLs that has many many fans on pins and needles on what it means for them then I don't know what to say to you other then too bad and move along.

I completed the survey today.   My preference would be to be as close to the access tunnel as possible.   Looks like theirs would be in the corners instead of the end zone as they are now.  I've had end zone/tunnel seats for 12 years and would like to be as close to that as I can get.

Those prices do not include PSL's I do believe. 

 

They definitely don't since I believe the article is at least a year old and they were using current pricing. But a lot of teams already have PSLs and they don't get factored into that list, so ours wouldn't either.

 

Depends on how you look at the PSL since it is a 1-time fee. How long are you going to hold your tickets to spread that cost over? 5 years? 10 years? Plus, the PSL can be resold/transferred if you decide to give up your tickets.

 

Either way, original point still stands: Bills already have the cheapest tickets in the league (and have for decades). When you look at prices for other teams, and the new pricing, we're still low. Maybe we move up to...?... 26 instead of 32?

 

If Buffalo can't afford tickets in the bottom quarter of the league, then that is a Buffalo problem.

 

I understand a lot of folks will be priced out, but there should be enough to take their places. Don't get me wrong, PSLs suck, I hate it, but it is the reality of the situation.

The Bills will work with the fans with PSL fees. You will probably have the option to pay it in full immediately, or over 5, 10, 15 years. At least that is what the Jets do. The Jets also split the cost of seasons to be paid in the spring and the PSL fee comes in the fall. With the Jets its due Nov 1. These prices are expensive for many fans and teams know this.

The prices I were told were literally this week so I would work with that as a range to start with. Buffalo is super cheap for everything league wide, many fans really do not understand that. The fact they even mentioned PSLs at just $500 is rather remarkable as in some cities the starting point was $5000.
