    Nothing yet. You would think that after the Pats issued the press release they would have sent the invoices out.

    A lot of teams allow season ticket holders to pay 50% of the total by the end of March and then the remaining balance by June or July.

    Oh well. Doesn't matter to me anymore.

    $1320 for me.

    One of the biggest issues I have is that the preseason will cost $1014. There is no way in world that anyone I know is going to pay for preseason games.

    I know the preaseason thing is league wide but it ticks me off beyond belief.

    Not to mention that games are usually on Thursday or Friday night at 7 or 8 when 93 and 128/95 are parking lots with everyone heading to the Cape.

    My ticket increase....... $89 to $117 per ticket.
    The $28 increase is what I was paying per ticket in 2001 Superbowl season
    in the old stadium.

    I also hate paying for the pre-season tickets.
    We always seem to get the 1st & 4th pre-season games at home.
    I wish I knew the logic they used for the home games in the pre-season.

    The first pre-season games the starters play less then half the game.
    The 4th pre-season game, the starters now do not see the field.

    The 2nd & 3rd pre-season games at home would be much better.

    When ARMAGEDDON hits and Brady & Belichick retire in 7 or 8 years, there
    will no longer be a waiting list for season tickets if Kraft continues with
    these type of increases.

    I have had tickets through the Earhardt, Rust & McPhearson lean years,
    but with a couple of kids now I need to set my priorities.

    I will be keeping my tickets, but I am sure some games will be available on
    the ticket exchange.

    Thats what a lot of people have been missing about us season ticket holders being ticked off with the price increase for tickets.

    We have been paying a ridiculous amount for parking over the last 7+ seasons.

    Kraft has now pushed us across Route 1 and I wouldn't be surprised one bit if parking will be $45 or $50 next season.

    I have had Patriots season tickets since the late 70's.

    I was going to continue with my season tickets even if we moved to
    Hartford. I would have made the drive.

    I am greatful that Kraft built the new stadium in Foxboro.

    I do think that Kraft does not fully respect the season ticketholders of today because of the waiting list.

    I remember when the Celtics had a mile long season ticket holder waiting list
    in the 80's. When Bird, McHale & Parrish retired and the team hit the skids
    the waiting list was gone and they could not sell all of their $10 tickets.

    Kraft gives all of the club box season ticket holders superbowl tickets
    while the season ticketholders who have been there through the lean
    years have a better chance at the megabucks than his phony superbowl
    lottery.

    Nobody in the press would dare challenge Kraft on his superbowl ticket
    distribution. Why do all of the Patriots vendors get to buy superbowl tickets?
    The vendors do not have to have season tickets to buy superbowl tickets.

    Why are the club seat holders more important the the season ticket
    holders who have been with the team for decades? The club seats
    season ticket holders have only been around since 2002. When the
    Patriots eventually hit the skids (after Belichick and Brady are gone), the
    club seat fans will be the first rats out of the burning building.

    Nothing lasts forever Mr. Kraft..... You should respect the people who
    stick with the Pats through thick and thin.,

    Nothing yet.

    It's really getting close for me whether or not I keep getting my tix. Ticket prices, parking prices and the post-game traffic bull****e is really starting to wear on me. I'll probably go ahead and renew this year and seriously weigh my options next season.

    I could get 6 Club Level ST for UConn football for my whole family for less than my one seat, or step back to reserved seating and by a big ol' HD for watching the Pats on Sunday.

    If money weren't an issue, I wouldn't even consider dropping them. Unfortunately with 4 kids and the wife being a SAHM money will be an issue for at least 3 more years until the youngest starts school and she goes back to teaching. Money is only part of the equation, the current traffic situation in conjunction with all of the new, yet to be completed development around the stadium is only going to aggravate it.

    I never foresaw the day I wouldn't renew. I've always had visions of us all heading up to the games, tailgating with with a kid or two or the family beforehand. But that may or may not come to fruition.

    I don't begrudge Kraft per se. Afterall, he could have easily gone the PSL route which would have priced me out as soon as they moved to Gillette. But parking and the associated increased grief and aggravation factors more and more.

    But for the price of the tix I could get a damn nice HDTV, watch the Pats sitting in the comfort of my living room with good, and comparatively inexpensive, food and beer and pee whenever I want. And get some ST for UConn plus buy a tailgating bus, pay $20 for parking where ever we want and be home within 30 min. It's not a decision process that I'm looking forward to.

    You know its funny how people rationalize ticket prices by thanking Kraft for not going with PSL's. Just because some teams have gone with PSL's doesn't make them right. Thats like thanking someone for not shoving a broomstick up your ass.

    The problem is that the entire NFL is a bunch of greedy pigs and they don't care if middle class fans can't afford to go to games anymore because that just raises the per capita income of their demographics. Its ok though, there is a limit and the NFL will learn that the hard way. The NFL is like the housing market in 2005, they are in for a rude awakening.

    NFL ticket prices keep going up like 10% every year meanwhile wages are lucky to go up 3%. How long can they keep this up?

    Excellent post. Also remember the late season games all those damn seats were completely EMPTY. I was at the Miami game and it was vacant up there and I remember seeing that also with Jets at home. Well into the 1st and 3rd quarters, people are barely just getting to their seats.

    It says pay for 2008 season tickets - but when I click - no invoice available.

    I've decided to walk away from my season tickets. It's not really a money issue since an extra $140 isn't gonna kill me. It's more on principle. We pay good money for tickets, parking, concessions, etc. and what do we get for our loyalty? A bogus Super Bowl ticket lottery that I've yet to hear any regular non-red seat season ticket holder has won. Plus the timing of the raise in ticket prices could not have been any worse.

    I'll go back to watching on TV and going to a game or two a year. I'm sure someone will gladly take my seat.
