Midol would be a more appropriate sponsor.

You guys know that if they can get money from sponsors for crap like this, it likely trickles down and allows them to continue to offer their BELOW MARKET VALUE TICKETS for you guys to complain about being too costly, right?

I assume this was mostly tongue in cheek, but revenues don't affect ticket prices, demand does.

Is there anyway to change the title of the "2013-2014 Season Ticket Invoices" thread to the title of this thread? It fits so well.

Not entirely. If demand was the only factor, ticket prices would be double what they are now, maybe more. Demand is outweighing supply by miles. How long is the STH waiting list?

Have the prices stopped increasing? I just got my invoice this month, they're higher than they were last year. I'll bet the value of my season tickets against my actual season tickets that they go up again next year.

I think they went up an average of 4%. They're still underpriced in the market, imho.

Having corporate sponsors for random crap certainly doesn't hurt when they decide how much to raise them, or how much to charge for a beer or a hot dog.

Monopolies suck for consumers.
