    Default Preseason games are free

    Good idea. I got these e-mails from the Pacers late this afternoon





    Thank you for your continued support of the Indiana Pacers. We know that our most important fans are our season ticket holders.

    I am writing today to share some very exciting news concerning the upcoming Pacers games in October. In commemoration of the 25th anniversary of Melvin and Herbert Simon's ownership of the Pacers, you will be given the tickets for the 2008 Preseason games at no charge as a gesture of our deep gratitude for your support of the Pacers.

    Shortly, you will hear from our Ticket Sales and Service Group on how the Complimentary Preseason game tickets will be reflected in your account.

    Also, in the very near future, we will be sharing some exciting additional news concerning Pacers Preseason 2008.

    We are very excited about the upcoming season that begins next Thursday with the annual NBA Draft. We hope that you will join us in Conseco Fieldhouse for our Draft Night Party.

    Again, Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in Conseco Fieldhouse.

    Sincerely,



    Jim Morris
    President
    Pacers Sports & Entertainment

    Something I heard is that the Pacers will play a pre-season game at the coliseum.

    Wow that is awesome, I'd love to see the new players they get play, even in preseason. My first game ever was at the coliseum, though I barely remember it.

    That's free to season ticket holders, not the general public?

    It's about time they did something for the Season Ticket Holders. Every time there is a deal on discounted tickets, us STH's get hosed. Remember the $4 balcony seats. I still had to pay $20 for them because I was a STH that already paid for them.

    I'm just glad that they thought about the season ticket holders for once instead of everyone else eventhough I hope the pre-season games are free for all and we can get people to reallize what they are missing.

    &$*#@^!!!

    This is the third time I haven't received an e-mail about something going on with the team. You have got to be kidding.

    I was one of the first people to renew my tickets for next year, too!

    I'm getting really tired of not being kept in the loop. I am used to hearing this things before anyone else...

    I swear I am calling my rep first thing Monday.

    Are you using Kiva as your ISP? Kiva automatically thinks Pacer emails are spam.

    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    I don't know yet, I assume they'll go to Orlando again. Last year was a hoot on the Podcast, the announcer sounded like two fans just watching the game having a couple of beers. They'd mention PD when we would email them, very funny.

    I bet if they go to Orlando you'll be able to get the internet feed again. It's a little weird, really hard to get a feel for how good guys are.

    I remember when Stanko Barac asked Dante and George a question about his new Pacer teammates. What a class act.

    I work in the IT department where basically my e-mail is hosted. I've never had anything not come through before. There are no blacklists for any PS&E address.

    No kidding, it seems us season ticket holders have kinda gotten screwed over the years. I have always hated that I had to buy pre-season tickets to begin with. I don't care for the pre-season at all, I might enjoy it more now that it's going to be free.

    Hicks has the seat next to me because the guy that had the pair of seats next to mine was so upset over the $4 seats that he chose not to renew. It didn't help that his ticket rep at the time (my last one) treated all her balcony customers like their money didn't matter.

    I forget what question it was but I remember someone asked who has an advantage? Yao with his kungfu or Shaq with his size.

    100% agree that TSH have not been shown much love by Pacer management in recent years. I suspect that's because many if not most of the season tix are held by companies and not by individuals. Regardless of how you rationalize it, the 'deal' is a discount of about 9%. That's pretty decent considering the inflation going on generally. My product went up 3% last January and will be up another 7.5% next January. In that context, 9% is a very nice gesture. Thank you, Pacers.
