A lot of money in NWA is spent on the economy and helping residents.  Could we do more?  Absolutely, but that could be said of every other metro area in the country as well.  Everyone can always do more.
The poor will always be with us. Jesus said so. And the Razorbacks will always be with us too.

It will be loud for first non-conf game. Then when reality sets in, all the old rich crowd will concentrate on drinking and eating and leaving early.

The fact that you have gotten 6 likes on this board is proof that you have a duplicate account.

A lot of money in NWA, both individual and corporate. Could be better spent to help the economy and residents than on football tickets and suites, but its their money.

I'm sure the guys working on the stadium would tell you to kiss their butts.

A lot of money IS in NWA.  Why you would want to make a social statement like that is kind of baffling tho. But yes, the area was chose as top 3 in america to live.  I personally think that that lends to the notion, if you take all aspects of cost of living, income potentials, etc..etc.. that would make it a top 3 in america, having a sellout helps prove it is a top economic area already.  I mean, if people feel they have enough disposable income to invest in pastime activities like buying NEZ seats at a premium cost, then Good for them. i hope they(and anyone else) spend their own money on whatever they wish.  I  buy my tickets, i make my donations, i donate at church, i make large donations to the salvation army every year.  I spend my money how i want and pardon me if i don't think i need a reprimand from anyone on how i spend my money.  You sound like a Bernie Sanders supporter.

I remember an argument from a few months back when we were talking about firing people that it was claimed that the new addition was already sold out.  Well nice to see it is almost and likely will be sold out when the season starts.  Which way are you gonna look at it, were the threats empty or not?

76,800 seats will make us the 27th largest stadium in the United States. Larger than Arrowhead Stadium and 200 seats short of AT&T Stadium. Not bad for Arkansas.

I believe it you wish to look back, that posters said the suites and loge boxes were sold out, nothing about the club level seats, because they had just started marketing them.

Not quite if the rumors were true, or in other words did they have a bird in hand or was it still in the bush.  Have they made an announcement prior to this one?

Rumors, lol. Suites and loge boxes, yeah, back before the first of the year, suites were sold out before Long was fired, and they were around 63/70 loge boxes. I guess you aren't on the RF's email list?

And why wouldn't you believe them, what good would it do to say something is full and limit sales? Also, I didn't realize Scott Varady was a Reverend, learn something new every day.

I Don’t know what they said or why, I ask you if they had made a public announcement before this one.  I believe mainstream opinion on this board is that it’s not official until there is an announcement.  Again, did they publicly announce it before Long and Bielema were fired?

I see you have already taken to task by a few folks for this statement.  I don't know what you meant exactly but the University of Arkansas is a huge driver of the economic success of the region.  https://cber.uark.edu/_resources/economic_impact_of_the_university_of_arkansas.pdf   The university funnels tons of money into the economy of Arkansas, particularly North West Arkansas

Razorback games are not worth even half that amount. Amazing what people will pay today based on what the team did in the late '70's.
Were you asleep for the SEC west championships we won, and the times we got top ten since we've been in the SEC?

You might want to check and see, since you used the 70s as your measuring stick, what the win/loss record and overall record was while Hatfield was HC. Pretty darn good. How many times we win our conference with Hatfield as coach?

We have had plenty of down times in razorback football since Ken Hatfield left, but we've had some amount of success too. And our football programs success or failure shouldn't dictate how much you support our football program. Not if you were born a razorback fan. Not if it's in your heart and soul like it is with me.

You are a fair weather fan. Not a real one. If you were a real one, a lifelong one, you wouldn't be so willing to abandon the program when times are bad. Real HOG fans don't do that. We love our team no matter what.

Then don’t spend your money on tickets. Pretty simple.
Hopefully the UofA can still field a football team without your financial support.

And you could be donating your time in service to the poor and downtrodden but you waste your time on a Razorback message board.

Well, if someone wants cheaper tickets, they are selling 4 lower level tickets for $100 for Eastern Illinois, and upper deck 4/$60. I think RF members can get them on Monday and the general public starting Thursday. They also have some 2pack tickets for Bama/LSU and others.
