Where is my Chris Heck Hates Soccer Fans t-shirt?

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

The Flyers debut a mascot called Gritty who becomes one of the most famous and loved mascots of all time overnight due to memes about being a blue collar, working class hero and the lesson Heck takes is that that embracing Philly's blue collar reputation is a bad idea.

Heck takes ... that embracing Philly's blue collar reputation is a bad idea.


Well, when your stadium is in a Main Line community like Chester, it is easy to put on airs.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

I didn't renew my season tickets in 2011 because of this tool. 

 

We had priority to tour the new stadium and pick seats - we picked 107, row 5&6 with 7 seats. Great location. Best spot we could find in a non-premium section.  

 

Three years later, they called that area premium and put in a 35% price hike (there was a big price bump the prior year as well I believe). They said rows 10 and up in 107 were not premium, so we could move there, but there weren't 7 seats available.

 

So basically, our seat selection priority from Giants stadium was just thrown out... I forgot about that. Now I am consumed with anger. Thank you.
