Even More SSS Bloggeration!

Virtual

All apologies to the non-NY fans out there but the Red Bull Arena love train rolls on. No, scratch that...I'll make no apologies for my excitement. If the previous post wasn't enough stadium p0rn for one day, RBNY just launched their new 3D seat selector; you can't buy seats yet but at least you can give them a virtual test drive!

These have gotta be total business morons to give away the best seats in the stadium to the MEDIA!! Geez! Stick the media in frickin rafters. You wanna make money so that we can raise the salary cap so sell the best seats to the prawn sandwich brigade.

Anon #3 is the real moron here.

If you understood marketing in the least, you would see that the local,regional and national attention the team receives from the coverage the press provides is far more valuable than the negligible extra revenue placing fans in those seats would generate each match.

This is about creating new consumers of your product (RBNY, MLS and soccer in general) that will purchase tickets, merchandise and everything else in the present and future as well.

The media is fickle. Treat them well and they will return more often than not. Stick them in the "frickin rafters" and you risk even less coverage than MLS currently receives.

Yeah, no need to apologize, that stadium is sick. I'm out here in SLC, and we have our own new stadium, but yours is making me a bit jealous.

So the strategy is to kiss the media's ass? That's a nice idea except in spring and autumn when it's cold and rainy the reporter's gotta freeze his nuts off outside writing a story. And unlike what most believe you still get wet in roofed stadiums near the front of the seating areas. All it takes is a gust of wind. That'll be really good for their laptops. Give them a comfy press box with heating/AC so they can work in comfort and give 'em a buffet spread every game.
