Default Football tickets

This isn't directed at anyone on this board, but I going to post it anyway:

I've listed my tickets for sale for years here and other places. I always list them cheaper TYD than you can buy them from stubhub or any of the other third party ticket exchanges. My cost for every home game is in excess of $400. When I sell them for less than that I'm loosing money. Games in the dome and the UGA vs UF game cost more and aren't a part of the season ticket package. The tickets I have listed also come with a hotel room at the old Holiday Inn on Lumpkin that you cannot get at this point in the year. Hotels in Athens jack the prices up during football weekends and some force you to get two nights for every home game for the entire season. At $200+ a night it's $2,400 before taxes, fees, etc.

Those are just the hard dollar costs. Once you add in the premium location of the tickets and the fact that you can't get a hotel in Athens(especially at that hotel) the cost can be even higher - simple supply and demand from high school econ.

Like I said, this isn't directed at anyone here, but I felt like I needed to post it so ya'll can understand the true cost.

$750 for the room and tickets, $250 just for the tickets. Y'all quit being Jewish and recognize the deal in front of you.
