$199 11 game Season Ticket packages aren't competitive prices? $4 tall boys at the Tailgates aren't competitive prices?


Yes and that's a great deal. You can't beat season ticket prices to Argo games compared to all of the other teams in town, we are talking about ONLY 9 games, a pre-season game plus the options on a playoff.
TFC has twice as many games and they are playing at home in the cold months of Apr/May and Nov.
The Jays have 80 home games? the Leafs 40? the Raps 40?
For affordability you can't beat 9 reg season games in a season ticket package.

BS


Neely if my original post had not been butchered by a moderator you would know that my original post was not talking about everybody at a game but specifically talking about the difference in demographics of fans based on my own personal observations travelling on the Lakeshore West GO Trains between Aldershot and Toronto travelling to Jays, TFC and Argos games.

When the Cats are playing at BMO the majority of fans on that GO Train route are Ti-Cats fans - and that is why in my comparison I specifically referred to non Ti-Cats Argos games GO Train demographics so that my comparison was more apples to apples to apples. ie. Jays, TFC and Argos fans - without Ti-Cats fans skewing the comparison.

I completely understand why you would not get that from the way my post got edited by a moderator though.


Ah okay, my mistake. I thought you were saying that there are more Ticats fans than Argonauts fans @ BMO Field for Argonauts games against Hamilton.

The Argonauts Season Ticket package includes a home playoff game, it isn't an option.

Seriously? why do you think they included the "potential" playoff game this year?
They know already it's not going to happen.

Your previous post did say 'option' on a playoff game.

Per their site, the post season ticket is included

http://www.argonauts.ca/2017-season-tickets-sale-now/

They included it in the event they qualify and host. Credit or refund if they don't. Same as any other team that includes one. no?

They included it last year too. If they don't host a playoff game you get a refund on that game.

The playoff ticket is also the most expensive ticket in the 11 game season ticket package. The preseason game is the least expensive.

There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it's all dark.

Not matter what, it's still a great deal when you compare to other sports in Toronto and other CFL cities.
No one in Toronto can use the excuse that Argo tickets are too expensive
