Wow, 100,000 waiting for Saints tickets? I can remember the days of being able to get into a Saints game as easily as a Tulane game. Just walk around near the entrances and someone would give you a ticket.

The Giants wait list was generations deep. Then they built the new stadium, both Jets and Giants required the dreaded "seat licenses" and the wait list disappeared. Folks that had tickets for generations gave them up. It was too much money to justify for 8 games/years.

I finally gave up my Saints tickets this year after they raised the prices again. This year they cost double what they cost six years ago and triple what they were twelve years ago.

This is the first time since the Saints' inception that no one in my family bought season tickets.
Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen. You see, no horse here is so dead that it cannot be beaten just a little bit more.

Yep 100,000. If only Tulane could get 5000-10,000 of those fans to buy our season tickets.

Hales also hopes to take care of a waiting list that is approaching 100,000 fans by rolling back some of the broker accounts selling tickets to opposing team fans, and then offering those tickets to people on the waiting list.
