I saw this on Facebook.
I have some questions.
Why now? Are you upset that the 2019 Mets won 86 games?
HALF PRICE TICKETS: Would you like them to do this right now? If so, they probably haven’t budgeted for that and there will need to be cuts elsewhere. Also, they have sold a lot of Full Price tickets, especially to season ticket holders, and I imagine those folks will be mad at the discounts. I guess the Mets could consider your plan for 2021.
HALF PRICE FOOD AND BEVERAGES: You will need to take this up with Aramark who handles that concession.
HALF PRICE FOR ALL MEMORABILIA: You will need to take this up with several companies including Nike and New Era, but you may want to start with the Central Fund people. While the Mets can charge whatever they want in a store they own (such as the Mets Shop at Citi Field) they do not control the league-wide pricing of things. I guess under your plan the Mets would sell $110 jerseys for $55 and just take the loss on each jersey, because Nike is unlikely to sell Mets jerseys for $55.
HALF PRICE TO PARK: You will need to take this up with the parking concessionaire.
But let me ask you something, why should the Mets do any of this? Why do you deserve this? Because you like watching baseball?
If they offer it at a price you like then consume it. If not, then don’t. I am not looking for Star Trek to sell me half price Blu-Rays because Discovery sucks. I just don’t buy them.
Just don’t buy any of it. Stay home. I am not saying to boycott. Just spend your money as you see fit. If a $110 jersey makes you happy buy it. If not, hope one goes on sale some day for $55 and buy it then. We can’t make everything half price because you’re upset about what again – 86 wins?
