Beer to be sold during 2014 season at FAU

I think they better re-think what the Hyundai Deck member benefits are…I am beginning to wonder what I am paying extra for to be in there since it seems everyone can sneak in there anyway (not sure I care, but it does get crowded).
Thank goodness they did care about overserving us in 2011, it was the only way to get through the year!
teambeer saidThough I feel part of the premium is our actual seat location…in the shade, between the 25s on the home side (which is worth something) I do agree that the "right" to purchase beer is a perk that I've felt I have paid for, it's cheapened the value a bit. Better security would be a plus, throughout the game. It's good for the first quarter and then by the second half, it gets a bit loose.

Obviously the seat location is part of the premium…BUT if the entire stadium can get to our location, is that really a premium? I made a five year commitment with a lot of promises made, with either the promise not completely fulfilled or taken away. They need to figure out what is special about the section that the most willing to give money to the program are sitting. I will spend the money if I perceive value, I am losing site of my perceived value.
It's just the way it is in todays market…the Dolphins have to spend $400 million to upgrade there stadium to keep people interested.
Personally we could use the revenue IMHO. But the student section would have to be HEAVILY monitored.
$1 beers in Hyundai whereas it's $6+ elsewhere?
Or a greater selection in Hyundai but only one type of beer elsewhere?
What's the compromise?
FAU checks tickets all the time for that section before letting them up. What else do they need to do, go person to person every quarter during the game and ask to see their tickets? That would ruin the experience IMO
Local Owl saidI am far less concerned with the beer issue as I am with FAU's inability to control access to the Hyundai section. I feel like I pay for the right to the benefits and yet there are more people getting in for the price of a standard ticket
