You just confused me.
They would sell out the stadium with season tickets if they could. IIRC they did that in 2006, 2007, and 2008. After the disastrous 2008 season the Bengals lost a lot of their season ticket holders and had trouble selling out games last season.
As for the waiting list my wife put her name on it along with a $100 deposit. You got the chance to decline for 3 years before you lost your deposit. So in essence there were people on the waiting list while games went down to the deadline for a sell out.
