RE: ODAF Donations
Here's my question. In the past reseating was done ostensibly to allow bigger donors to improve their seats, so a smaller donor could be bumped from their seats if someone wanted them. It looks like under this new system that goes away. So, if Because of You priority points no longer apply to seat selection, how is a donor incentivized to give more $$ if that doesn't help them select better seats?
Though it's not mentioned, I have to think ODU will raise the cost of seat licenses from time to time, so some folks with shallow pockets will be priced out eventually.

They will raise money by offering more benefits if you give more. Like...If they offer more benefits like tailgating, away trip discounts and perks, away tickets, sideline passes, BB room, VIP benefits and other hospitality, food discounts, etc. You are correct they better the team performs and the more demand for tickets is generated they will raise the seat reservation fees. I suspect they will keep seat reservation fees the same and raise season ticket prices first.

RE: ODAF Donations
For me an ideal situation would be to put a price on each perk or benefit and allow us to only buy the ones we want as opposed to having giving levels that may include a number of items I'm not really interested in. A real ala carte program, just charge more for each item.

RE: ODAF Donations
It appears, looking at the seating structure (post 160 link), that 2019 ODAF donations are in the seat allocation point formula (x 0.15) as well as lifetime ODAF donations (x 0.2). Consecutive years of ODAF donations and season tickets are both weighted more heavily (x2). So, at least for this seating reassignment, ODAF donations remain a factor. It seems that the biggest change in seating will result in any reduction of numbers of seats bought by high donors, due to the seat licenses, freeing some up for lower donors. As most everyone likely knows or assumes, there will be no reseating next year for basketball.

We reseated in 2017 for football and basketball (at least I think we did basketball the same year). If they hold the trend it would be 2020 when that happens again. I really hope they reseat The Ted again. I want to move my dad up with me for one and frankly, the basketball only set should not be immune to the seat fees.
