Now you can take your wife to the South of France so it's "win-win"! I looked at those 2 in 142 as well and it is a great location but damn... If it was a guarentee the PSL would appreciate it's a no brainer. Unfortunately IMO I don't see that happening.
Interesting. Yeah for me the 142s are only likely a small upgrade over what I have since it's only 6 seats closer to the 50 at same elevation, etc. And there's a small risk there'd be a 7 footer, 400 pounder, or screaming maniacs/etc rather than the nice folks around me (the 2 seats directly to my left have had different folks every single time, but otherwise the folks around me that I know a little seem pretty cool).
But they are a little closer to the 50 and on the aisle, enable marginally quicker outs and annoying the folks to my left a little less for beer runs/bathroom breaks.
If I nab them, I'd either sell my 135s for the season, basically taking a 1 season risk on the 7 footer, etc. Or I'd list the Pats, Fins, Pitt, NO, and Oak games for >=2x face immediately. Assuming those sold, that would at least cover the ticket cost. Then if I could sell any of the others it would be gravy to help pay the PSLs. Or I could go to those games with more people which would be fun.
But you make a valid point. Given the way the last couple years ended and the near term likely negative outlook for this team, maybe now isn't the time to be aggressive?
Note that this is how I wound up upgrading several times during the initial selling process....
