Stadium Renovation Update

So, today I heard some news regarding the new stadium renovations. Now I'm all for the updating, but some of the news I have heard has definitely ruffled some of my feathers. If you are a season ticket holder and are currently seated under the overhang or in the rows in front of where the overhang starts, you are going to lose your seats. Forget if you have had them for the past 15 years, they're gone. Do you get first choice on new seats? Oh no, they go to the big donors. The club seats that are going in front of the suites, where your season tickets might have been on the 50 yard line 40 rows up, are now going to be $4000/ticket. Yes that's right. $4000. Now I don't like bashing our own athletic department or board of trustees, but seriously? We can't sell out a game as it is, and now the board has approved this thing with higher ticket cost. I was expecting some sort of hike in ticket cost, but to this extent is just absurd. For me right now, this doesn't affect me, but it does affect our fans, and I believe alot of those fans are going to be pretty ticked off. I was hoping to someday move to the West side of the stadium, but I know I'm probably not going to dish out $16000 for tickets and alot of other people won't either.

FYI - I've been playing PowerBall and Mega Millions religiously as of late and if I win I'm donating $15 million to the stadium renovation and will get a SpitBlood suite on the 50.

I might even buy the naming rights to the field...Texas Hammer Field at Amon G. Carter Stadium has a nice ring to it.

I'm probably not ever going to be the kind of person, even if I could afford it, that would get a suite or club tickets, whatever those are. I wonder how the prices will change for standard seats.
