Just got notified by e-mail that payment for season ticket holder playoff tickets (two games worth) is due by Dec. 10. I can't recall for sure, but don't think I've ever seen it this early. I'm suspicious the team is trying to cash in now so it can start earning interest $$$ while the real prospect of Pats in the playoffs is still up in the air. Heck, we could be anywhere from 10-2 to 6-6 on Dec. 10. A suggestion to the Krafts: If you're going to do playoff tix this early, at least print up some nice ones instead of the generic Ticketmaster-style version we always get.
