    ISU football DVD WTF

    Maybe I'm just not a big enough ISU fan or something but this is ridiculous

    DVD of all 12 regular season games-$244 before Sept. 12 or $288 after

    2009 Football DVD Season Ticket - Iowa State DVD Store - Official Team Store

    Who would come up with this price and say to themselves "yeah there will be a lot of people willing to pay $240 to see ISU on DVD"?

    They probably figure parents of the players will purchase them, and that's a significant contribution. That said, it's a considerable mark-up for what most likely will not be a highly sought commodity.


    TRUE AND VALIANT

    By my may thats about $20 / game - cheaper than season tickets and an alternative for those that can't make games (farmers, people who live too far away)

    May not be a huge demand for it, but there is probably some market for it


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    Re: ISU football DVD WTF

    I'd consider buying it for $50.00 or less, but anything over $100 is outrageous, especially considering the prevalence of DVR in this day and age...

    Of course DVR requires the game to be on TV, which is not always the case for us.

    Re: ISU football DVD WTF

    Since it is being marketed as a "season ticket" of sorts to those who cannot make the games, I am not surprised that they are charging that much for it, but it still ridiculous. For the amount of content on each disc, the price should really not exceed $10 per.

    Disappointed there is no Blu-ray though.

    Do you think they lay the audio of John Walters over the video and cut plays like they do on Mediacom Replays

    I guess the use of jim is misleading, but yes, that's exactly what they do

    Each DVD includes the "Cyclone Express," a full game edited for length with Cyclone Radio Network commentary

    If I won the lottery I still wouldn't pay half of that. Bad fan...bad fan.

    Re: ISU football DVD WTF

    I'm guessing they sold pretty well last year for them to be doing it again this year.


    42-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    I was being sarcastic. I guess I figured for that money the video wouldn't be so choppy. But I was wrong which makes it even more of a rip off.
