Yeah, and it's actually $99 per ticket. I bought two tickets in upper box and the total cost was $203. There was a $5.00 mailing fee, but the other $8.00 was not explained.

This looks like a good deal on the surface, until you find out that the straws are red and white.

95 a ticket - 03-15-2011, 09:09 AM

75 or 95 for a seat between the goal lines is too much for fresnik. if we were playing a major power would probably pony up. parking adds to the price of attendance. will take the option of staying home in protest of this money grab.

This is all Perceived Supply and Demand - 03-15-2011, 09:40 AM

Cal will scare you into believing you won't get in or get bad seats if you don't do exactly what they say. For years you could walk up to football or basketball and buy great seats, sometimes from Scalpers. Nothing ever sells out.

If you are unhappy with ticket prices, then don't buy. If sales are less than what they project, prices will go down next time.

Todays mantra is "Only buy what you can afford." its a good one. Throughout my life I have sometimes bought expensive cars and other things that I now wish I hadn't as I near retirement. I would advise all you young people to carefully consider how you spend your money and to make certain you live within your means.

If you can't afford $95. then buy $55.00. Or wait until later when bargains will most certainly be there.

Who can I complain too if my bottle is corked? Sandy had better give me another bottle if that happens.
