What the Heck?

Not sure what to title this but I know some very pissed off Ex-Saints fans. Ex as in 1 hour ago.

The Company I work for has had season tickets for 25+ years, dating back to at least the mid 80's. The person who had the authority to renew the season tickets was out of town for a few weeks and apparently missed the call about renewing. He missed the 1 1/2 week deadline and our tickets were sold out from under us. He was told no equal tickets were available and the next upgrade would cost over $2000 more per ticket....

I work for a very large, well known Company.

I will be Black and Gold until I die... but a few fans were lost..

Sorry to hear that, but either the company you work for is not big enough, or not very well organized. Either that, or this is just an excuse for the company you work for to discontinue the purchase of the tickets.

Re: What the Heck?

I did not find out third hand. I was listening 2 feet away from the person talking on the phone who also asked to talk to a manager. He tried for 30+ minutes to get it sorted but the Person on the other side said there was nothing that could be done.

If the Worlds Second Largest Oilfield service Company is not large enough than no one is.

If you stop being a saints fan over that, don't know what to tell you. that has nothing to do with the players, which are who we root for.

Re: What the Heck?

LOL It does not phase me in the bit! As I stated I will die a Saints fan and cheer from the Clouds or Fires (where ever i end up).I live in Houston and could not care less because the tickets were for Customer entertainment purposes only..... Just thought it was pretty crappy nothing could be done for a a 25+ year loyal Season Ticket holder.

I mean really. If you are working Season Tickets and see that a set of tickets has been held by the same person for 25+ years, some slack should be cut.

It does not matter how big the company is, if it is 2 seats owned by Boudreaux and Thibodeaux for 25 years.... We all know what Saints fans have endured for the last 25 years...

Amen. If people are going to quit being a fan because of tickets, then they didn't deserve to be fans in the first place.

They should be lucky they even got the opportunity to go to home games in the first place. I live in South Dakota, and the only time I get to watch the boys play live is if I make the 29 hour drive to New Orleans or they travel to Denver, KC or Minnesota. Then, I have to drive the 8-12 hours just to go to the games.

It sucks that their tickets were sold from under them, but they will get over it.

Just my opinion.

Re: What the Heck?

They gave your tickets to some of the people who lost their seats earlier this year due to remodeling. They are trying to find tickets for those people as fast as they can.
