Good for the ticket holders, but that's quite depressing--not so much about football, but that we really haven't broken the back of the spread of the virus.

I might not be seeing all the implications for this season (what it may suggest) but I think this is some good business for those teams. This season is going to be a cluster so don't sacrifice long term continuity of your fan base for some short term money by basically holding them hostage.

And again....not a single peep from the Saints organization about any of this, except for notices that our payments are due

It is so immoral that the Saints are forcing people to pay by COB today
Seems like they keep kicking that can down the line though. The final payment date keeps getting bumped further and further and I get the impression they really don't want to drop season ticket holders over this.

I paid in-full but I'll be honest that I'm not stoked about the idea of going to games in a Dome this season, if they do allow fans. If I had been legitimately been given the option to pause for a season without losing my seats, I would have.

I just hope that if they do decide to offer this...that they refund those who have already paid. Because if there is a season with fans, I'm not certain that I'll be bold enough to go and then the money I spent on my tickets will go to waste.

Interesting enough, I didn't get a call this year for season tickets, but I did last year. I wouldn't get them again due to pay cuts, but interesting with the economy.

You probably haven't gotten that call because it seems as though the team hasn't released any of the tickets that are un-paid like they would have in April and May of previous years.

I get the impression that they are delaying things as long as they can in hopes that more people who haven't renewed yet will eventually do so.

Friends, I apologize in advance if this has already been discussed, but can someone explain to me the Giants scenario compared to Saints STH that have renewed and already paid? Meaning, if the Saints offer something similar, would that mean the money I already paid would apply to next season?

I talked to my Saints rep 6 weeks ago and he told me I could get a full refund, no questions asked. Then I thought, why? I can wait to sell them on the open market. But the way things are looking now, probably a waste of time trying to sell them, but just get my money back now. I do not see any fans being allowed, much less a season happening.

Not sure if there is an option to apply your money from this year to next year. My question to you, or anyone else would be. Why let your money stay in the hands of the Saints without earning interest on YOUR money? Just take the full refund, IF they still allow you to retain your rights for the 2021 season, which I do not know is for certain, with the Saints.
