    I just though I'd let you all know that after an 11 year wait I just received my 1st invoice for season tickets today! So hang in there. Now the only "problem" I have is coming up with $3500 by July 17th :confused:

    Great news! But you joined before they won a superbowl (or three...). I'm still banking on another 15 years or so for me. Buy hey, by that time maybe I'll have the money to pay for them :).

    Congrats! At least I have some actual timeline now rather than the many theories floated here and in conversation with others. Now I just have only about another year and a half to wait! LOL

    Congratulations. Give them a big shout from me.

    (I figure that I'm doing this for my daughter (or, perhaps, my as yet unborn grandchildren).)

    Thanks everyone. They're 3 rows from the very top in section 328(10 to 20 yard line). I've sat in the nose bleeds before. They take some getting used to. It's a very steep grade up there compared to the 200 and 100 sections.

    About the same as mine. It's not a bad perspective. Congrats!

    I'm curious, how can season tickets cost that much ($3500), especially for non-premium seats? Say you have 8 regular home game and 2 preseason, that's $350 per game. If you get 2 seats, that's $175 each!! What am I missing?

    4 seats for ten games...? That sounds about right.

    How do the fees work out for season tickets? Do you have to pay a Ticketmaster fee or anything for every game/seat?

    That's still about $90 per game. Are ticket costs that high? I haven't been to a game for a couple years, but that still sounds expensive.

    These seats are $89 per seat per game. If you want to sit in the 200 level they are $117. The 100 level sidelines are $169 I think. Now we haven't even talked about the $40 parking fee yet.

    There are corner nose bleeds for $65 and standing room only for $49. Sheesh, to buy 4 standing room tickets for the season costs you $2360 per year when you figure in the parking:eek:

    By the time i get my tickets...the whole team will be new..no Brady...no one...i still got another 15 or so years until i get mine. Is there anyway of seeing exactally how many years or what number you are in line? I joined the list about 7 years ago.

    That's fine though. Get 'em in 12 years or so and you'll get to see Mayo, Chung, Meriweather and Butler leading a dominant D. It'll be sick.

    Did you get the actual tickets yet? If yes, how long after you paid for them did you receive them?

    Thanks.

    I put my name on the list after the 02 season since i was two years out of college and figured i would be able to afford the tickets in the several years it would take to wait.

    At THAT time they told me a seven year wait. I called back after the 04 season just for $hits and giggles to see what the wait was then and it was 15 years...yes two years on the wait list and my wait time had doubled.....thanks to two superbowls.

    Now that its 5 years later from that point and no superbowls although damn close in 07...with the Brady lost season in 08 and the terrible economy I am willing to bet the turn over has been "decent".

    So if I had to guess, since we both signed up same time in 02, right now probably 5 to 7 years wait time. Ie accelerating that 15 years the past two a little bit for the bad situations. Doubt its 10 and 5 may be a tad optimistic.

    I have no idea if they still give estimates when you call anymore.

    No, so I called on Wednesday. I got Kind of a weird response. I told him I had paid for them on the 7th. He looked up my account and the asked me if this was the first time for me. I said "yes" and he said ok I'll send them out later this week. I said alter this week? and he said yes.

    I don't know why he asked me that or why that would have anything to do with getting my tickets. I have a feeling I'll be getting then Monday.

    Thanks for the response. We are in the same boat as you except our due date was 7/24. We are still waiting for the tickets. I need to get my mom verify that her check was cashed.
