Perhaps one of the most

inaccurate comments stated on this board in a long time.

The comments below are from someone who was involved in the decision and posted these comments on TheSabre.

"As a VAF board trustee at the time that voted for reseating, my view is we made a huge mistake, didn't effectively vet all of the potential scenarios, as well as gave too little "weight" in the formula used to reward those fans who were long time committed season ticket holders"

"This is the challenge Carla is facing. Reseating, along with many of the other factors I listed above, ran off a bevy of the long time season ticket holder base. It's going to be difficult to replace those older departed ticket holders with a new group in their 20s/30s/40s. This group is smart about working the secondary ticket market when they choose to attend an event."

"Reseating took place in '07. It was a mistake"

This board was full of numerous examples provided by VAF members who did not fit your description. I am guessing you weren't a VAF member or season ticket holder at the time because if you were, you would have a much better understanding of what transpired. Almost everyone knew VAF members who quit buying tickets because of this fiasco.
