I mentioned that concession prizes were too high and said that while I know the prices are comparable to the rest of MLB they were still too high for someone with a family, like myself. I told them I make sure my wife and I eat elsewhere before a game because the prices for a family to eat at a game add up so fast that the only thing I can really afford is a snack for my kid because he's a kid. Lowering prices even slightly would mean I maybe get my kids food plus more for my wife and I. 

I am going to say something similar and point out the Atlanta Falcons as a team that cut concession prices heavily.

Yeah I think you adding in the comment about concessions stands is a great thing that some people over look. I know I purposely eat at home before going to the game so I don't spend anything there. I end up going out to eat after the game.

I took  the survey just now. I got the e-mail yesterday and ignored because I thought the subject line was cheesy and first thing I thought was something involving Pitbull. I like the question they asked. I think it should defiintely say Marlins.

During the survery I did rip them on the Energy team as well as the food options and taking care of season ticket holders. One of the reasons I didn't renew besides the price sky rocketing was the customer service reps were awful. I told my ticket agent to stop emailing and actually pick up the phone and call me. lmao

that's some good shit , made me laugh

Considering how I'm one of the clear leaders of the propaganda machine here I think I was very hard on them in the survey. I tried to use a bit of psychology.

My thinking was anything that I said wasn't good enough or needed improvement will get worked on even if I already think it's fine. I put in A LOT of negatives. You can't take a survey like this at this point in the ownership's tenure and say everything is great.

I ripped the Energy Team because I want them gone.

To be honest the only thing I really praised was Billy The Marlin because they've already shown some iffiness on him and I don't want them cutting him back any more and I think he is a damn good mascot.

I mentioned that concession prizes were too high and said that while I know the prices are comparable to the rest of MLB they were still too high for someone with a family, like myself. I told them I make sure my wife and I eat elsewhere before a game because the prices for a family to eat at a game add up so fast that the only thing I can really afford is a snack for my kid because he's a kid. Lowering prices even slightly would mean I maybe get my kids food plus more for my wife and I. 

Also, did anyone find some questions tricky to answer based on the timing as far as ownership? Like there was choice that asked if the Marlins have "a commitment to winning" and I thought that was tough to answer because for Loria's entire tenure I can mostly say no but for Jeter I wanna say mostly yes but then again it's too early to say yes or no for sure so how in the world do I answer that without being able to actually give a full explanation?

shit I did the same with the energy team, concessions food price, I even wrote on the side that I either eat before or after the game . The only part we didn't coincide was Billy. I think Billy must be redesign or scratch that pointed swore and make it safety friendly I'm surprised he hasn't poke anyone's eye yet.

Also bitched about parking and ticket prices.

I did the same hoping they lower them but honestly I think they're fair enough... anyone wanna argue this? I honestly have no clue how they compare to the rest of baseball but I don't feel like I'm getting screwed on these prices. Not saying I wouldn't love them lower and not saying they're cheap either.

The problem with parking is doesn't the city own those lots? I remember something about the Marlins needing to pay the city $10 per spot every game regardless of if the spot is filled. So they kinda have to price it above $10 to cover that cost plus potential empty spots.

This makes sense. And over $10 isn't bad either in the sense that it's not like any MLB team is ever gonna have $5 parking or lower.

I'd argue that raising ticket prices this year was a bit outrageous...

They lowered them for most games if I remember right, but yeah some games saw increases.
