Anyone who forces you into digital tickets is doing so so that they can make more money selling your data. They will sell your info to 3rd parties

I don't disagree that your information is being sold.  However, as long as MU has your email address, the same information can get sold when you buy paper tickets and have them scanned at the game.    Really no different than digital in this case.

I miss being going up day of game and buying tickets on the street from those who have extras.  Don't like the idea of having to give personal information to someone in order to transfer the tickets.

I second this. Have to imagine this limits the resale market to StubHub and other such services far more than the paper tickets.

All you have to give them is an email.

So that's how you're all making huge profit? Selling our info, hey?

Yes, but what they ultimately want is your consumption data...which is linked to the geolocator part of the app you use to get scanned into the arena.

What entrance do you come in from
What time do you arrive before games
When do you leave the games
How often do you get up from your seats
Where do you go (concession stands, bathroom, etc)
Did you buy merchandise....did you do it after an ad on the jumbo screen
Etc etc

That’s the value that an email address only doesn’t provide

As much as people (deservedly so) want to protect their privacy, I feel like anyone buying my data would get absolutely ripped off.

Entrance: JC
Arrival time: 10-15 min before tip
Exit time: Don't leave until the final buzzer under (almost) any circumstances (did it once. Vandy in 2011, only time I felt like the team quit).
Leave seat: Go to the bathroom at half maybe 50% of the time.
Merch:  Only non-ticket money I have ever spent at the FiFo was buying a single beer during the Bucks home opener last year, just to say that I did (also so I could keep tabs on game 6 of the NLCS)

If you want to pay for that info, go right ahead.

Heaven forbid that this mystical MUBB game app, which I have never seen btw, syncs up to my Fitbit. My resting heart rate during these crappy OOC games might signal MU to send the Bell Paramedic Squad to my seat to see if I died from the lack of competition on the floor.

Your geolocator accuracy and timing beliefs are a far cry from truth.

Actually seen them in action at several stadiums we are involved with.  Hardly far from the truth depending if they are connected to wifi, and in the soon to be 5G world the tests done are absolutely amazing...can even determine from a 3D perspective what floor they are on.  Interesting things coming, some already here and testing in the real world.

Not an issue with the Fiserv Wifi.

While I have a cell phone I don’t have a smart phone. I resent MU telling to spend hundreds of dollars a year upon a device I neither need nor want so they can save money.
I am not a Luddite as I own an Ipad and a desktop computer. I have no desire to schlep my Ipad to the games....

Well you can pay $100 for printed tickets or go down to the ticket office and they will apparently print them for you for free.

Do people realize that buying season tickets is optional?

You could buy an old phone for like 50 dollars and just use that.

You either love your season tickets, warts and all. Or, you could just leave it.

The world is changing, my friend.  At some point last century, they removed all the hitching posts from downtown streets, and I am sure there were complaints aplenty that there was no place to tie up one's horse.

Hundreds of dollars?

Here's an unlocked Galaxy S4 (yes, an old phone, circa 2013/2014) for $70.  I mean, it's really old by today's standards, but if all you want to do is make phone calls and get into the FF, then it'll work just fine.  Buy it, put your sim in it, and it'll work just like 'ol flippy.
