Stadium Expectations for a first-timer?

Post

When I said "swap out" I actually meant 2 people who sit in the "premium" seat go down and change tickets with the two I have sitting in the end zone maybe at halftime.  So I would only have 4 people in the Hyundai Deck at any given time, and all 4 would be holding a ticket for seats in 207.  I have 1 or 2 in this crowd who really don't care about watching the game (family that is just there to see my daughter), so I didn't want to pay $58 for tickets that somebody will probably only sit in the seat for a quarter or two at most.

If they do it the way they are suppose to, no you won't be able to do it.  Last year I think they punched the tickets for one entry.  I wouldn't leave the section without telling them so you make sure you can get back in.

Build a wall !I agree.This subject is like beating a dead horse. I see the problem not being the stair entrance, but the entrance near the restrooms. Wayyy too soft . And lets face it, those folks don't want to work too hard to enforce the rule.

And we will keeping beating the dead horse for as long as they sell the $90 tickets as a premium section.

I think that's due to just having a bad system when it come to selling beers.
They don't have enough taps or people back there for big crowds. It way better to buy beer from the guys walk around.

You are right staffing is THE issue, but the reason the staffing is the issue is they look at the tickets distributed for the Deck and then staff accordingly.  When they expect 500 on the deck and 2,000 show up, that causes the staffing problem.

I think they do a pretty good job of keeping most people who do not have tickets to the deck out.

I few might get in, but I sit right by one of the place where there a security guard and he turns many away.

that might be the case but when there are 2k people at the game and the bar line is 10 people long something is up.

Last season they punched the ticket and stamped your hand. That way the person can come and go but the ticket can not be re used.
