So, we've already renewed our tix. We mailed in the check the day before the due date; a time when the Ws were solidly in the running for a playoff berth. Renewing then allowed for a small discount and rights to playoff tickets. When the playoffs didn't materialize, we were forgiving. You gave it a decent shot. I suppose the exception might have been used earlier in the year to bolster our chances but saving it for after the season seemed reasonable.
There has been a lot of water under the bridge between then and now. The 08-09 season hasn't started yet , so I apologize in advance if the team looks much different when it does. But I think there will be some grumbling, and possibly a little booing this fall, if the Ws put an inferior team on the floor.
From a fan's perspective, I want only for the Ws to shoot for the moon. That might mean tanking for a season. That might mean saving cap room for the stellar FA class of a year from now. As a loyal fan, I'm OK with that. But as a season ticket holder who is watching the market value of his tickets drop like a shot-put off the Bay Bridge mid-span, I am worried.
If you do choose (perhaps wisely) to not spend the money on a star this year, would you consider a 10% refund to all season ticket holders? Give it a thought. Thanks.
