For anyone wanting to take advantage of the no on-line fees Fat Tuesday deal beware of the following. It doesn't apply to the Paul George sections 112 and 109 deal.

A little disappointing I must say. I mean the tickets for that area with the special are decently priced, but that changed getting two tickets for around $50 bucks to $69.83... Would have been nice to spend that extra $20 on food instead.

Bottom line.... once again if your looking to take advantage of the Paul George deal today, don't bother.

It's not just the Paul George deal that it doesn't apply to....


Sec 109, Row 5, Seat 6

KRIEG DEVAULT CLUB LEVEL MARKET PRICE
US $25.00 Ticket + US $9.15 Fees/Additional Taxes =
US $34.15
Other ticket options
PAUL GEORGE $24 TICKET OFFER (Max 8)
US $24.00 Ticket + US $9.09 Fees/Additional Taxes =
US $33.09

It doesn't apply to any seats in the section....Even if you select the Market Price....

Scared me for a minute, I just bought my tickets and got on here to post about it. But I just got good old front-row balcony seats.

I love this deal because I hate Ticketmaster with a passion, and PS&E still gets the full ticket price.

I haven't used Ticketmaster in years.....face value plus fees, no thanks. I almost always use Stubhub because you can get the same seats for about 1/2 the price.

There are some Pacers games on Stubhub that you can get balcony seats for $2 - $6 dollars, you can't beat that.

There's still going to be a ton of empty seats anyway.

A huge head scratcher I know. This is a hell of a deal to see a good team.

I wonder what people are doing that they aren't going to the game. Maybe I'm wasting my time and money going.

Maybe I should join them and watch grass die.

My only complaint is those stubhub fees can add up fast, but minus one case I have always had a good experience dealing with SB (and my one bad expereince was partially due to it being SuperBowl week, and the rep I was dealing with was an @#$, but he was also clearly overworked)

Perhaps saving their money to pay bills....like oh say a mortgage or rent, car note, college education, etc.

If they and try and stick you with shipping fees on printable tickets just complain and they will drop the fee, I do it all the time.

Well excuse me maybe I'm just wasting my money is basically what you're saying.....? :hmm:

Look I'm not saying it should be a sellout during the week, but being 28th in attendance is quite ridiculous for the team we have.

Why don't you get an understanding on what I'm saying before you start barking at me.

I might be the only one, and I dunno why, but I always find it humorous whenever they do these promotions regarding other teams, and they show a player from an opposing team in an out-dated jersey. John Wall and Andre Igoudala are rocking said jerseys.


I know in the grand scheme of things it means absolutely nothing, but I still find it kind of amusing.

1. Show me where I ever said that. You find it, I will give you a signed Pacers jersey.

2. I think it is great you have the disposable income to go to games. I am a film and theatre major, I LOVE the arts. I love entertainment, and wish I could go out to a show/game/movie every night.

That said, I am getting married is less then a month and just bought a new home, as well as 2 (mine, cosigned for my fiances) new cars. While I would love to be able to go out, it is simply not practical at this point in my life. Keep in mind I am in the minority, as I have a job and actually have a little left over to buy a car.



Look I'm not saying it should be a sellout during the week, but being 28th in attendance is quite ridiculous for the team we have.

I agree 28th is bad, but lets also remember this team has been a joke for a long, long time. Its going to be be a slow climb up. Marathon, not a sprint.

It's a good idea in theory, but how do you explain the Colts selling out every game this past season despite being 2-14? Yes, many of those are pre-sold season tickets, but you think after awhile, people would've tried to sell their tickets to opposing fans or just simply not go and avoid paying the extra dough for parking, food, drinks, etc.

I think we're just a weird, weird city.

Never followed the Colts, but I would guess it would have to do with them winning the SB so recently.

No doubt Indy is a fickle fan base, but I think that is true of many palces.

One weird thing I learned working in entertainment as a intern: a lot of sports teams call games "sell-outs", meaning they "sold" all their tickets, but that does not mean all those people showed up. Weird, but I guess technically they are not wrong

You know BLF is absolutely beautiful and all the neat stuff in the outer concourse is great....but... compared to other arenas are the seats similar in distance from the court?

You get a great view anywhere in BLF.

Scot, no offense and I do appreciate your rah rah attitude for our team, but I really was asking a legit question. Saw my first Pacer game as a kid in the Collesium, had season tickets at MSA, and have always attended somewhere around a 7 to 10 game schedule in Reggies' House.

I've only attended away games in Orlando so I do not know how the seating is at other arenas. It just seems on television many of the arenas have seating closer to the court than BLF. Frankly I miss the temporary bleachers that use to be Legends and of course the main section 1 north entrance is one heck of a big hole that other arenas probably have seats in.

I understand the company boxes are a priority since many teams have went that route for the guaranteed good money. It makes since to me and if that is what is needed to keep our team in Indy then fantastic. However, that may explain why even when BLF had better attendance when first built the crowd just didn't seem to be as loud. Thus are the seats not as close?

I agree with the exception of some of the corner balcony seats where people walking up and down the aisle all night obstructs your view.

Hicks
02-21-2012, 04:24 PM
Having sat down low many times, I don't know how you could make them much closer than they already are.

Ehh, I'm probably waxing nostalgic here. Just seemed like you could cram a lot of bodies in that lower level bowl at MSA.

I will add this. Without attendance going up I would think the Pacers will probably sit on that cap space to recoup some of their money unless it's a really good player involved.

I think the seats are as good or better than a lot of the arenas I've been to. Lower bowl is as close or closer as anyone. Club is equivalent to most arena's mid-level seats. The seats in the upper deck may be a little farther away because it isn't raked as steeply as a lot of arenas, but the sightlines are a LOT better. The fact that the boxes are split into two levels AND are set way back under the overhang of the next seating level makes a big difference.

The volume level is more due to the design of the building than closeness. The ceiling is differently shaped and higher than the ceiling at MSA was. The bowl design of MSA held noise in, while the open design of BLF makes it spread out. That's why the acoustics at MSA really stunk for concerts and things like that.

Well no **** sitting in the balcony isn't as great as sitting in the lower level.

I'm just saying, you get what you pay for.

Sitting in the corner not having as great a view is cheaper.

That's why sound guys who can deal with those types of venues make a pretty good living.

The difference between MSA and BLF is like the difference between a CD and a 78 rpm record.

I started to reply yesterday, but yeah, I agree. Its a good question, and FWIW I feel like Washington had seats closer, though I am not sure how that translates to total space (or even best usage of space)

My point was some people do not have the money for any of the "recreation", which is why you see a lot of entertainment venues begging for people to come out.

Some people really are just staying at home and watching TV or even worse working a second job.

Just my .02

Dont what?

Maybe I am wrong in just basing it off of the DC metro area, but I see a lot less people at the shows and games around here, not to mention the movie theatres. Perhaps people are choosing to spend their money elsewhere, but IMO I think a lot of people are just choosing not to spend it at all, if they have any to spend.

Enough with the derailment of this thread. Hope you all were able to get some good deals with no fee Tuesday.

Very little, if any, disposable income in my household. We always get decent tax returns, which is the only time we have disposable income. In reality though I can't really even consider that disposable because the majority of it gets put into home improvement.
