What kind of dent is $7 vs. $5 going to put in the wallets of Reds fans?
I can understand fans not wanting to pony up $14 for what used to be a $5 seat, but now you can pony up $7 for what used to be a $10 seat and actually isn't a bad seat, IMO.
Serious fans will find a way to afford to go to ballgames, and if they honestly fiscally can't, then there's always 700 WLW.
