Price for rights? $0. There are no "rights" in the PSL sense in the Superdome. The seats are freely revokable by the team. They have a history of cancelling seats due to sales of "rights" that do not exist.

I don't understand why people thing they can SELL the rights to tickets. You don't pay for rights when you get season tickets so why should you expect to get something extra for them when you get rid of them? You can't afford them just let them go and the next person in line can have a chance at them.

you seem bitter about something. regarding the vocabulary , "rights' in this context mean that the tickets are in your name now, when they were in someone else's name before the transfer. You get the right to be a saints season ticket holder as long as they are selling season tickets and the right to pay the price for your tickets every year. you get a season ticket acct number and access to manage your ticket. vs sitting on the waiting list until you die. There is a value there for those willing to pay a price to avoid the wait. There is a premium to be paid for this right to have your ticket NOW. If you are bitter that someone else is willing to come up with the premium to get their ticket NOW, so be it, But, don't berate those who choose to go that route or a season ticket holder who has paid for tickets, supported the team with attendance and putting his money wear his mouth is, for many years, at a cost. so, now they reap a benefit and offer a ticket NOW to someone who sees the value. I guess you think Obama should give you a pass up the waiting list because.....? Why? It is the policy of the team to allow this. so, who are you to say its wrong?

BET YOU " HEARD IT ON THE INTERNET" AND HAVE BIG WIDE EYES. ....how about some evidence of that. You mean if someone falsely alleges that the saints season ticket they sell you is good for any event in the dome; that you can buy the seat and its yours 365 days a year and for all events.......then maybe you can complain. But, that's not what this is all about. you know not of what you speak. I was at the saints facility on Friday to do just that and guess what, ? Im still in good standing and so is my transferee/seat mate. SORRY to disappoint you.

Because people with tickets in THEIR name have the right to transfer those tickets to someone else for a price if they choose too. What people are doing is giving someone a chance to get tickets in their name without having to wait. I understand that people without ticket rights don't think that's fair, I was in that boat as well at one time, but I bit the bullet and paid for the seats to put them in my name. I have a pair of tickets posted on here as well to give someone a chance to have them put in their name and with that comes a price sometimes. I just asked for someone to make me an offer, I didn't even put a price on them.

Well shrimpnose I understand all the crap you are saying. I just don't like the fact that someone is trying to make money off of this. So a $3000 seat (for a season) could end up costing someone $4500? That just isn't right to me. By the way I do not need a damn thing from OBAMA

CRAP? ...well, I guess its just too bad for you, then. Live with it. I don't like peanut gallery people berating others who actually have a stake in the game. :nono:

I didn't BERATE anyone. And yes CRAP
Let me put it like this, have you ever invested in something? Anything, like your nifty black and Gold Golf cart? Or, just bought it for fun and discovered it was valuable? Suppose, as much as it meant to you, someone said they'd love to have it and offer you 20K. Would you say, no cher, it only cost me 8K the extra value you're offering didn't come wit it when I got it? Or, would you say, OK?

Let me know if you believe that when you purchase something you look for value, meaning that rather than lose value, it will gain value, because you made a good investment. Like your house or your kids education. This is America and its attitudes like yours that want to stifle investing in your life therefore America. That's why I related you to Obama earlier. You think alike. My investment shouldn't pay off for me, I should just throw it in the pot for slow people like you to scarf up without any effort.

1st I don't think the parking pass helps much as they are generally easy to come by and overpriced. The exception would be if it is on the top level of Garage 5 or 6 where some tailgating occurs.

Section 155 is broken up into 2 price points, so your row number would be important. I would guess depending on the seats you could probably sell the "rights" for between 800 to 2000 for the pair.

But the correct answer is whatever you can get.

for the record, I've acquired and given up several pairs of seats through the transfer process over the years; and yes, $$ has been involved in those transfers. The Saints haven't cancelled (nor threatened to) any of my (currently) 3 pairs of seats. I think they have more pressing issues to be concerned with than me making a few dollars on a seat transfer.

I understand the concern of people on the 'waiting list' -- but you know, sometimes life just isn't fair. I doubt anyone worries about the 'fairness' of season ticket holders having to pay full value for preseason tickets that we have no interest in using and typically can't even give away. I doubt anyone cares about the 'fairness' of season ticket holders having paid full value for tickets at the end of a 3-13 season either.
