I'm trying hard to stay neutral here but just wanted to bring up that parking in Dutch lot is not terrible when compared to some other places I've had to park for road games. It is less than a 5 minute walk. There is a shuttle almost always there waiting for you for those colder nights and there are plenty of spaces. I always have to park there when I come up for games so I'm used to it. Take a trip down to Marist and you will think Dutch is great parking. Marist is like parking in the Indian lot and waiting 15 minutes for a shuttle in the cold with my son. Dutch is not THAT bad.

Agreed ... I hate to speak in any negative manner about the program/administration (and I am sure that fans of LCC will have a field day reading our posts), but Clickclack hits the nail on the head ..

For me the problem is not the price per se. It is the fact that we are trying to build/upgrade the program. We DO NOT sell out now. We rarely/never bring in any interesting OCC opponents [i know how d

Well this stayed civil for all of three seconds or so.   I'm looking forward to this game more for who IS going to be there more than who ISN'T. Yes, when the game is that the TUC there are 10,000 p

Or Maryland (well, the weather is better for your sometimes 30 minute walk).

Actually Marist is more like parking in H lot on the State Office Campus with no sightline to the gym or signage to tell you which direction to walk.

With the Siena game, I wouldn't be surprised if they end up selling more tickets. I personally know of at least 4 season tickets are going to be purchased by a Siena fan I know that has never set foot in SEFCU.

 

Wonderful, we'll now have four more empty seats for the other 10 or 11 games at SEFCU. Like Click said what is UA going to do when they don't have Siena at home next year?

First step of the conversion if they have a brain.

They are LCC fans now so I am not optimistic

It's not bad...until you've been spoiled parking 25ft from the arena doors. I'm dreading those walks now after parking VIP for like 4 years. I remember them being bad...5 minutes or 25 minutes.

I know a lot of people have been complaining about concessions, and pricing there, but last I knew UA and UA Athletics do not get a piece of that action. That is all Sodexo. That may have changed though.

You'll get used to it. It really isn't that bad. I've complained about it in the past but after doing it a bunch of times now it's really not that far.

Wait so we need to pay for the seat and do another deposit of $50? or am I having a brain fart and just not reading and what this is actually saying is that "to be in the contest, if you don't have all of the money for the seats now, you can just do a deposit instead"? I paid for my seat pretty much the day the system allowed me to...so I think I'm good...

As far as I know, is they are only asking for your commitment to renew your seats - so that means either paid in full or just a $50/seat deposit. It's not both.

Not sure how you come to that conclusion.

If they want to pay season ticket price or plan price to their team lose their superbowl whatever.
