Not going to get more political except to say there is not a chance in hell I will be providing any proof of anything.  None of anybody's business, especially that A-hole Cuomo!!!!  

There is nothing legal about what he has done and is doing.  He has lost repeatedly in court on the issue when challenged!!!

Just paid my deposit...I positively hate this new ticketing provider. That website is a mess and looks like it was build by a HS tech class. Brutal...should have just kept what they had.

I was told Neuline was bought out and they more than doubled their cost to UA. I was told UA could simply "not afford" the new Neuline.  How the he¬¬ much can a ticket service possibly cost?  Besides we pay a fee/service charge every time we order tickets??????

You do realize that there is a "cheap" side to UAlbany Athletic Department....based on my observations from Instagram postings...huge push on coaches and staff to hit the road recruiting....all sports ... particularly with teams with past success (ex. volleyball) as well men's basketball...

They'd have more money for proper ticket vendors if they weren't alienating hundreds of fans each game by charging asinine prices for parking. They think they are making money when in fact they are losing money (lower attendance means lower ticket sales means lower concession sales means less money period). They operate like NY instead of like FL. NY? High taxes, people moving out in droves, so less overall monies to fund the budget. FL? Lower property taxes/no income tax, people moving in in droves (I'm one of them), people spending more, which means more money for the budget. I dunno, basic economics to me...

I keep seeing concession revenue in conversations on attendance. Until a new contract is in place, please stop using this in your calculations of revenue. The athletic department could care less how much is sold during games. They have a contract with the current vendor, awarded from an RFP, where the vendor rents space at a certain rate. No matter what they sell or don't sell, UA collects the same. 

This could change in the next contract, so the more butts in the seats today will mean more competition and better bids during the next contract, but for today it makes no difference.
