I am thinking of buying season tickets this year. I am from Dallas, TX. I will only go to one game though if that this year. I would like to buy 4 best available seats.

Why buy them then? Great question. It seems whenever I want tickets, I buy 4 tix, sometimes more if a group is going with me. I always get crappy leftovers when they go on sale or over pay for good seats on fleabay.

My goal is to purchase 4 of the best available and upgrade the location each year until I have got prime 50 yard line seats years from now. As I get older (30 now) I will go to more games.

Not being a local to miami, I don't know anyone I might split the cost with. Is it permissable to ask folks here if they are interested in going in on something like this here?

I am interested to know if anyone here has ever bought tickets in a similar fashion. UNDERSTAND if we are allowed to do something like this here, as I don't want to peeve mods and all, I will post my email address. Also, I intend to make NO profit off of doing something like this. Which is why I want to do this, I know there are many DolFans who over pay for tickets and if I can assist with that I want to.

MOD please respond if I may continue to see if there is interest with this and get a group together here. If not, please PM me and DELETE THIS THREAD with my apologies.

Hopefully we will be allowed to persue this.

I may resort to that. But that is scalping. I am not interested in making money. This was a chance to give fellow FIN FANS a chance without raping them like so many do on eBay. If it comes to that, I will sell on ebay. I would rather give them to true FIN FANS who want to go to some games any way who would like some good seats for a reasonable price.

I have heard of it being done like this. I am just not sure if there is interest in doing it this way. I thought I would give it a shot.

So if this is something you might be interested in just for a game or two I would like to know. I already have a few are interested. I would like to get something done to proceed by mid February.

I live in Orlando and had season tickets in the 90's but the first year JJ coached we had 3 Monday night home games and that was to much on my schedule so I dropped them but I still go to a few games a year and I have found that the best seats can be had at the stadium within a few hours of kick off. I have been in very good seats even the club level and usually end up paying face value.

I have aquired some tix the same way. Coming from Texas with a wife, its best if we have tix in hand. She is a handful as it is. LoL. But that is still an option. I also like the fact of being able to buy home playoff tix this way. I know also am committed to going to the SuperBowl when Miami gets there. Not that season tix help that very much.

I dont want to burst your bubble about buying tickets and upgrading to the 50 yard line..I have my tickets for almost 30 years, and have yet to get there..and I started in the lower bowl!..Every time I try, I get a form letter stating..'nothing available'..or, 'people having tickets longer than you get first options'..finally, one year, I yelled and screamed AFTER my tickets arrived, and all they did was move me from one side of the stadium to the other..and that was after contacting Eddie Jones' office to tell them they were not fan friendly. I always wonder how people buying single tickets get better seats than we do..<usually other team's fans too>..Good luck..!

I have 30 years to wait. I understand your frustration. I don't think they were single ticket sales who get better seats than you, I am sure they are buying from a broker. Those brokers own some of those season tickets. Not much way to fight it.

Well I figure I am in for a wait. I knew it would be a while, but just how long wasn't sure. Thanks for the heads up on waiting time. Where do you sit though? How good are your seats.

I know I would be starting off in the UPPER level. Not sure how long it will take to get to the lower level.

Good Luck to you myfins....
I recently relocated to DFW and I gave my season tickets up. I couldn't afford to keep them and only attend a game or two during a season. I too had those same plans of moving to lower level 50yd. one day. Of the 5 years that I had tickets, my tail gate group increased in size which made it more difficult to find a lot of tickets anywhere much less lower level. I would consider buying a game off you, but my schedule is so hectic right now, I couldn't know which or when. Good Luck with your plan. I miss going to the games.

I might be interested in going halves with someone on some season tickets since I live in California. I can only go to 1 game a year.

I am sure that everyone realizes that the price for a season ticket holder in the lower boxes, on the 50 yard line, for 4 seats, is more expensive than buying a round trip ticket(purchased in advance), for 4 people including hotel... We know this right???:confused: :confused: :confused:

Besides... The BEST seats, in any house, is in the corner of the endzone!!!:D

The chance of moving to the 50 yard line anytime soon is none to none. I have had tickets for 21 years and never really got upgraded. People who are on the 50 do not move and pass tickets on to the next generation.

I also have some extra seats I am looking to dump. Email me at Jonlawmba@aol.com (Jonlawmba@aol.com) or cell at 786-299-4722.

Seats: sec 107, row 17 4 seats
Seats: sec 107, row 13, 2 seats
section 110, row 14, 4 seats on the aisle
section 118, row 13, 4 seats
Seats: sec 122, row 14, 6 seats
Section 122, row 13, 2 seats
Section 413 row 9, 2 seats
Section 414 row 18, 4 seats on the aisle
Section 450, row 4, 2 seats
Sec 150 row 12, 2 seats

Dolphins tickets are not hard to get so I wouldn't recommend buying season tickets if you only plan to attend one game -- unless that is the Pats game. Those tickets are very tough to get.

I've had season tickets for 10 years and am in 117 (10-15 yard line visitors side). I would be shocked if I ever got to 116 much less 114. People who own the premium tickets aren't stupid enough to just let them go.

Also, you can dog scalpers if you choose, but IMO you'll change your tune once you own tickets. You'll get maybe half of face for the 2 pre-season games and less than face for some of the dog games like the Titans. So, unless you want to lose hundreds of dollars, you will sell some of the better games at a markup to offset your loses. If not, prepare to pay an average of over $100 a seat when all is said and done.

BTW, if one game is all you need, I can sell you some good tickets if you don't cherry pick the premium games like the Pats.

I am looking for tickets to the Pats game in December. I understand your point about this being a premium game. I am willing to pay market price.....just not stubhub prices!!!!! Please let me know you want to sell tics to the Pats game.

If they haven't talked you out of season tickets for the few games you can make it to Miami for and have not purchased them yet, I have six in section 414 row 11 available. As you can see you shouldn't have too much trouble selling the ones you can't attend.
