      Nashville Kats return for 2005
      by DJRamFan
      NASHVILLE, TENN. - What goes around comes around. The Nashville Kats will return to action in January 2005 at the Gaylord Entertainment Center. The addition of the Kats to the Nashville sports landscape will mean that area football fans have the opportunity to enjoy the sport on a yearlong basis, with the Titans season running from August through January and the Kats from February to June.

      Commissioner Baker on Kats' return

      K.S. “Bud” Adams, Jr., a founding member of the AFL (American Football League) in 1959, and owner of the Titans/Houston Oilers franchise for 45 years came full circle on Aug. 18, 2001, when his application to purchase an AFL (Arena Football League) team for Nashville was accepted.

      “I am thrilled that we were finally able to put an Arena League team on the field for the football fans in the Mid-South,” said K.S. “Bud” Adams, Jr. “One of the things I did when the original Nashville arena team was sold and moved in 2001, was to hire their coach, Pat Sperduto, to work for the Titans until we were able to negotiate a lease with the Gaylord Entertainment Center. Now that things are in place I will hand the head coaching duties of the Kats over to Pat.”

      Pat Sperduto spent three seasons as head coach of the Kats from 1999 - 2001, produced a 32-18 record, three playoff appearances and two ArenaBowl berths. As a player and coach, Sperduto has advanced to the ArenaBowl on five occasions and won three Arena Championships with Tampa Bay.

      In December of 2003, Bob Flynn was hired to be the General Manager of the new arena team and will handle all aspects involved in the administration of a team, including tickets, marketing and promotions. Flynn is a 14-year veteran of the Arena League with stops in Los Angeles and Orlando. During his tenure in Orlando, Flynn was part of an operation that played in four ArenaBowls and winning a championship in 1998.

      The Kats also will have additional stockholders, including the Kats original ownership group (Corner Partnership), led by Mark Bloom.

      Tickets for the games will range from $5 to $99 per game with season ticket packages starting at $45 for the nine-game home season (eight regular season games and one post season game). Starting today, the team will begin taking orders for season tickets either by calling the Kats ticket office at 615-565-4700 (ticket office fax number is 615-565-4212) or by going to and obtaining an on-line order form. A $50 per seat refundable deposit is required to reserve seats. Priority seating will be based on the date that the deposit is received. For former Kats season ticket holders, every effort will be made to locate their seats near their previous seats, but exact placement cannot be guaranteed.

      “Our goal in structuring our ticket prices was to create exciting and affordable entertainment that is accessible to families and young adults,”...

      Rush Wins 2004 Afl Commissioner’s Award
      by DJRamFan
      Following its most successful season in franchise history – both on and off the field – the Chicago Rush was recognized with the prestigious Commissioner’s Award, given to the Arena Football League’s organization of the year.

      Voted on by the staff of the AFL’s New York and Chicago offices, the honor rewards excellence in the front office, as well as achievement on the field.

      “Winning the 2004 Commissioner’s Award is a tremendous honor for our organization,” said Mike Polisky, Rush senior vice president and general manager. “It’s a great way of acknowledging the dedicated and passionate efforts of our front office staff, coaches and players.”

      Chicago was the most televised team in the league for the second-consecutive season with 13 games featured on the “AFL on NBC,” including six home games. Spurred on by the team’s “tune in” marketing initiatives, Chicagoland ratings in 2004 increased by nearly 20% versus the team’s 2003 performance.

      The Rush also boasted significant improvement at the box office, as ticket revenues increased by 22%, helping Chicago average more than 14,100 fans per game at Rosemont’s Allstate Arena.

      Corporate sponsorships jumped 42% – and included partnerships with, among others, McDonald’s, Pepsi, LaSalle Bank, Ace Hardware and Anheuser-Busch – while the organization’s integrated advertising campaign and targeted, co-branding promotions boosted brand awareness to an all-time high.

      Chicago also experienced significant growth online, as its newly redesigned Web site,, doubled its monthly traffic during 2004 to more than 30,000 unique visitors each month.

      In competition, the Rush ended the regular season with a team-record 11-5 mark and advanced to the ArenaBowl semifinals before being defeated by eventual league champion San Jose. It was Chicago’s fourth-consecutive playoff berth in as many seasons, and second semifinal appearance in the last three years.

      Reservations for season tickets for Chicago’s fifth-anniversary season in 2005 currently are being accepted. In honor of Chicago’s fifth anniversary, the Rush is offering fans the opportunity to reserve their 2005 season tickets for just $5 per seat. To reserve your tickets, or to find out more information, call (877) RUSH-TIX.

      Rams Announce Reduced 2010 Season Ticket Pricing
      by Guest
      The St. Louis Rams announced today that the organization is reducing season ticket prices for the 2010 season for the majority of seats at the Edward Jones Dome.
      “We are pleased to announce that we are reducing season ticket prices for the majority of our fans as part of our ongoing pledge to deliver more value to our loyal season ticket holders,” Rams Executive Vice President Football Operations/Chief Operating Officer Kevin Demoff said. “This marks the third consecutive year that we are not raising prices as we strive to reinforce our commitment to St. Louis, improve our fan experience, and reward our best customers ─ our season ticket holders ─ for their continued support.”
      In an effort to make tickets more affordable for all fans, the Rams are offering a $250 season ticket for over 6,300 seats in the upper bowl for the first time in over a decade.
      Overall, approximately two-thirds of the seats at the Edward Jones Dome will decrease in price, with savings ranging from $30 to $190 per season ticket over last year’s cost. This year’s season ticket holders will also receive a $150-$250 season’s savings off of single game prices.
      Off-season updates from head coach Steve Spagnuolo, general manager Billy Devaney and chief operating officer Kevin Demoff will be mailed shortly to the team’s PSL owners shortly in lieu of the typical season-ticket pricing letter.
      Along with home games against NFC West rivals Arizona, Seattle and San Francisco, the Rams 2010 regular season home schedule includes games against Atlanta, Carolina, San Diego and Washington. Additionally, the Rams will host their intrastate rival, the Kansas City Chiefs, during the regular season for the only time in the next eight seasons.
      PSL’s and 2010 regular season tickets may be purchased today at The official site of the St. Louis Rams - SeasonTickets/PSLs - 2009 or by calling the Rams ticket office at 314-RAMS-TIX.

      Rams raise prices for 6th year in row

      Rams raise prices for 6th year in row
      By Jim Thomas
      Of the Post-Dispatch
      Tuesday, Feb. 15 2005

      Like Groundhog Day, Valentine's Day and Presidents Day, it is becoming a regular part of the February calendar for Rams football fans in St. Louis. For the sixth straight year, the Rams have raised ticket prices, albeit by a moderate amount once again.

      Personal seat license (PSL) holders at the Edward Jones Dome will pay between $2 and $5 more per ticket to watch the Rams play next season. The club sent out invoices earlier this month.

      The average ticket price for 2005 is $62.44 a game, according to Michael Naughton, the Rams' vice president of ticket operations, an increase of more than $3 a ticket over the 2004 average of $59.25. Those figures are for nonpremium seating only, which excludes club seats and luxury suites.

      Bob Wallace, the Rams' executive vice president, explained the latest increase in terms similar to how he addressed previous ticket hikes.

      "Once again, it's an attempt to remain competitive," Wallace said. "It's the cost of doing business. The salary cap has gone up. Everything's more expensive."

      The Rams did not raise ticket prices during their first five seasons in St. Louis. By the end of those five seasons, they had the lowest ticket price in the league, at $34. Then again, it was hard to justify a ticket increase during the team's first four seasons here based on the product on the field. From 1995 through '98, the Rams went 22-42 and never won more than seven games in any season.

      But since the beginning of the '99 campaign, the Rams are 70-36, including five playoff berths, two Super Bowls and three division titles. After the '99 Super Bowl championship season, the club hiked ticket prices an average of nearly 24 percent.

      Since then, the ticket increases have been more modest. The overall ticket increase for both 2004 and '05 has been 5.4 percent. The cheapest seats in the Dome - the upper-deck end-zone seats - now cost $44, up $2 over last season. The most expensive seats- the lower deck and terrace level seats between the 20-yard lines - now cost $85, up $5 a game from 2004.

      In 1995, the first year for the Rams in St. Louis, the price range for tickets was $25 to $45. So the cheapest seat in the Dome in 2005 ($44) costs only $1 less than the most expensive seat did in 1995 ($45).

      In a letter sent out to season-ticket holders, team president John Shaw wrote that the Rams' season-ticket package "remains an excellent value and maintains Rams ticket costs in the middle tier of the NFL."

      The Rams feel they can remain competitive by being somewhere in the middle one-third of the league in ticket prices. Last season, the Rams' average ticket price ($59.25) ranked 14th among the 32 NFL teams, according to Wallace....
