    They have been an abomination since day 1. Even in the good years, they have been bad on tv.

    GTAA makes money on those (and the lounge is nice). I agree with the look, but the GTAA needs the $.

    Would be curious what the buy-out for those would be? How much does GTAA *really* make on those above other seats. Should be audited.

    Who cares. They would be full if we had a good product to offer. I would be more concerned about the 75/25 UGA/Tech fan split at BDS every godamned time we play.

    Those seats have never been full, even in good years.

    Club section wasn't that bad but maybe it was an optical illusion due to the surrounding red.

    The problem with chairbacks is that the entire stadium should be chairbacks not just one section. The entire stadium should have beer for sale, not just one section. Etc etc.

    Wrong.

    They are ALWAYS sold out.
    I can't even move a section over for two years now.

    However, the person most likely to have them is a Dual Tech Grad Couple with their first or second child.

    Watching every moment of the game is not the focus of the seat holder.

    You can take your beer/wine out to the seats now.

    The issue is the tickets are held by folks who don't come to every game/sold on stubhub/or the aforementioned wife with young children.

    It's as close as you can get to a Family Section.

    Yes, the seats are sold, not full. Most of these folks have been squatting and selling for years.

    My biggest problem with them is that they're directly behind the visiting bench and are usually the quietest place in the stadium.

    Are they Tech fans or ticket brokers?

    What’s the history of those anyway? Why weren’t they put in the West stands? Anyone know?

    This. Not opposed to a family or wine/cheese section, just put it somewhere else in BDS.
