    Winning attitude

    I'm not one to re-post material from the other site, but I don't think the OP would mind in the case. We talk about our teams having a winning attitude, but the same also applies to the fans. The OP titled his post 'Way to step up clones'. Kudos to this fan for "getting it".

    "I have been a season ticket holder in both football and basketball since 1983 and have been donating to the cyclone club since 1988. For the first time since 1988 we did not recieve our requested seats in football, and all I can say is hooray. Way to go to all those that have increased their giving and kicked me out of my seats. It looks like I'll just have to step up and come take them back next year. Keep it going clones the future is bright!!!"

    I knew what this post was going to be as soon as I saw the title. No question, that guy is the man.

    Re: Winning attitude

    The whole story doesnt appear to be there.. if you get your order in on time, you typically keep your seats.

    I think "typically" is the key word, but I think it depends on what others around you are donating and what their point status is. My wife and I donate two levels above for the section we prefer to sit in for football. If you're donating the minimum for your section, I suppose you could get bumped if there are enough fans above you donating more or holding more points.

    Re: Winning attitude

    So you already know where you will be seating? I thought the seating assignments weren't coming out until mid summer?

    So your telling me that when I get home from Vacation I will have my seating/parking assignments? I HOPE THAT IS THE CASE! (first year for a parking pass)

    Re: Winning attitude

    Not a matter of making it up or being a downer by those who raise a couple of questions.

    The OP is/was a season ticket holder/donor for a long time, and that is great. It is also great that their was a donor to take his seats (either new, or upgraded closer to their level).

    Those raising question are not doubting, rather, saying the fact is, as long as you are donating at the correct level for your seating, and make all deadlines, you do not lose your seats, so something was missing.

    As the poster on the other board replied this was somewhat the case (some sort of in-kind situation). So he had been actually setting above his donor level (in some fashion) so his seats were up for grabs on this basis.

    Great someone else stepped up, or got seats they deserved, and, rgreat he is a long time donor/ticket holder, and great he is going to step up his donation next year.

    But one could say they are just making adjustments so the benefits fit the listed donation level.

    off topic here but, what does "OP" stand for? I know it is a thread starter, but what words does OP represent? This has been driving me crazy for awhile. Anyway, thanks.
