Don’t Discount the Fans With This Math

February 22, 2017
"If the Astros give you a 1/10% discount for being a 10-year buyer, they ought to give me a 1/20% discount for being a 20-year buyer. And, to be totally fair, they ought to give all of us season-ticket holders a flat-rate 1/54% break for each of the 54 years we've been in the big leagues!" - One Astros Season Ticket Holder to another.

“If the Astros give you a 1/10% discount for being a 10-year buyer, they ought to give me a 1/20% discount for being a 20-year buyer. And, to be totally fair, they ought to just give all of us season-ticket holders a flat-rate 1/54% break for each of the 54 years that Houston has had a club in the big leagues!”
