Seems pretty early this year but maybe the Bills want to strike while the 'kool-aid' is flowing freely.  All season ticket holders get to buy up to 6 extra tickets to games.  Expect the Pats* opener and Ravens game to sell out immediately.

Makes perfect sense.  The Billievers are flying high right now so selling them tickets before camp/preseason is a smart biz move.
I hope they sell out every game before camp even starts!

It depends on your senority and type of seat you own. For instance, I can buy on Wednesday the 15th.

Seriously the Bills used to run one open practice as part of their OTAs and it was usually in conjunction with the Pick a Seat Day.

I used to love going down to the stadium to watch the rookies and vets workout in a practice setting.

With all the attention to marketing and sales I'm really surprised this concept hasn't been resurrected.

Privilege or life of indentured servitude?

I took one of my sons to that once.  It was on a weekend and we had a fantastic time.  Tailgated with some people and then sat in the first row and watched the entire practice.  He loved being able to hear what the coaches were saying to the players. Afterwards the players came over to sign stuff for the kids like at camp. Great stuff.

Maybe one of us needs to pitch it to Branden.

I mean Brandon.

Notice how Branden hasn't announced the number of season tickets sold so far this year. It must be a pitiful number. The guy is a tool box.

^ Okaaaay...

It's such a bummer that the opener always sells out before it even goes on sale to the public. Just ain't fair :D

Of course, the last couple years it would have been cheap and easy to snipe some off of Ticketexchage on game day.  Wonder if that'll be the same this year - I think there's lots of enthusiasm around the Bills!

Joe has a raging hard-on for Brandon.

Bot 4 extras for the opener this am.  Seats in the 100-level mid way up (in sections 116, 129, 107, 138) were available this morning and were still available when I checked back this afternoon.   Other price levels were available as well.  Should be plenty available tomorrow, hopefully no server issues for you all.

All set for the opener too!  Midway up the upper deck on the 50 yard line.  Sat in the lower bowl corners the last few years, but while I prefer the lower bowl I'll take the better view this year.

My brother was able to pick up five Jim Kelly club tickets for me this morning for the opener.

What will this mean for the annual TSW tailgate?  If the opener is sold out, I'm guessing there won't be a group buy in July?
