    A banner that says something to undermine folks who paid for the seats? That would royally piss off MLSE.

    "MLSE GAVE THESE SEATS AWAY FREE" or something to that effect.

    I'll only be buying the odd single-game ticket next year. I'll be sure to let you know if I pay more than a season seat holder. I'm betting I won't.

For me it is realy not about price but about product, and not a winning product, but a product that I can believe in and hope for something better. I have not had that since the end of 2010, when I realized that this club was build of a fuondation of shit.

    That is the same time my son and I bailed,Trane ,and I see nothing to bring us back. I am still emotionally attached to whoever is on the field on a given day ( TFC would make a fortune selling programmes every game so fans can see who is playing and coaching ) but really resent the blowing of a wonderful opportunity to bring half decent soccer to Toronto by MLSE.

    Are we saying that it's the ticket reps themselves telling us that renewal rates are going well? That's our source? Yikes. I'd like to know what "on pace for a record" would mean in real world numbers.

    I am still attached despite my better judgment, but I deeply resnet MLSE. I hate them like I have never hated an ownership gourp, and my first love is owned by fucking Berlusconi, so it tells you how much I hate them.

    The explenation is simple there is a word missing, LOW, it should read "on pace for a record LOW".

    Agreed.

    There are too many ways to buy/sell tickets these days. They can't stonewall on prices the way they might have 10 years ago.

    Think that's the other half of the reason for "dynamic pricing", because if they are inflexible others will basically eat their lunch. Sure it looks like they benefit on the way up, but on the way down they are just trying to save their bacon while everyone tries to undercut each other

    I highly doubt that if renewals are going poorly that they would tell us. When have they ever been transparent about ticket demand?

    It has to be coming from reps,.....the guy I spoke to used those exact same words when I challenged him on sales, he stated that they were on record pace for sales, and its possible they were in the $200.00 range, but my guess is they have hit a brick wall with all other sections

    ^^^

    Agreed, the yellow section is going to sell fast at that price, no doubt. Going from over $300 to $190 is a great saving in the yellows. But the other sections are still going to be a harder sell. Even at bottom of the table TFC are still a $190 product. But in other sections, you need a better product and a winning team to be paying over $1000 for a pair of tickets.

    Honest question - who's Mark? And any chance he would have any input into what the company line would be to inquiries? Or would he have a vested interest in presenting a positive spin?

    that's me.

    it came from Anselmi himself. I don't think he was bullshitting. there would be no reason for it, he knows that I don't give a shit about money, tickets, suppporter sections or the price of beer. I'm only concerned with football.
    lol, no vested interest here my friend. only a selfish need to improve football.

    So who will be not using their free Raptors tickets? We should have a thread for those who are not planning/can't use their free tickets, so they can be passed onto those who can, no point in the, going to waste.

    Remember The Man, The Legend, The Goal 5-12-07 and All That #9 Left On The Pitch, Thanks For The Memories !!!

    Yeah that's bogus IMO.

    Sales can't be going well.

    They just threw in Raptors tickets for early renewals... they wouldn't be sweetening the pot if renewals were at record pace.

    This is good news because it's forces MLSE to get their shit together. First step of doing that is to get rid of Mariner and Cochrane then hire a president from a successful background to run TFC.

    Thanks guys.

    Anselmi and at least one ticket rep is saying sales are on pace for record sales or doing well. Let's remember this as the freebies of jerseys and other MLSE tickets are thrown at us.

    Another way of saying it "Hurry, while quantities last"

    I'm skeptical as "record sales" seems to be an intriguing way of describing renewals. They aren't selling new season tickets, they are simply collecting renewals. So the measure would be renewals to this point this year vs renewals to this point in previous years.

    Considering in the early seasons we reached the ceiling on tickets (supposedly), how exactly can you be on pace to break renewal records? If everyone renews, as they supposedly did or were close to in previous years, the record is 100%.

    price reduction + free shit = good renewals. makes sense no?
    factoring in the free stuff i'm probably paying between $100 - $150 for my seat. who wouldn't renew?
    I know a lot of guys that were very serious about not renewing. the price drop happened and they are now back in.

    TBH I don't really give a shit about the business side of TFC. I just want football fixed.

    Yeah I agree about the business side of things I just wanted this fact nailed down for future debate on how the masses are responding to renewing. I know how we're responding. Thanks again for the info.
