New Arena seating policy

I was just reviewing the information sent out regarding next weeks "seat relocation" event and came across some wording that was particularly troubling:

Please note that priority for seating at the new arena is based on the quantity of seats you have on account going into the seat assignment process. Be sure to take full advantage at this event, as there may not be another opportunity to purchase add-ons at a later date.

As I read it, it does not matter how long you have been a season ticket holder (since day one for me) but rather on how many tickets that you have in your portfolio. This is problematic for the following reasons:

1. It is a slap in the face to fans who have stuck with this team for a long era of mediocrity, the fans who continued to get tickets as the prices moved higher when the team got good/great and have continued to support the team during this last incarnation of horrible basketball that we have been witness to for the past six or seven years.

2. You are putting the arena in a position of having the problem that a ton of the "new" arenas have, which is corporate seats put business partners who aren't necessarily fans into the seats. Makes for a very quiet arena.

If this proves to be true, that the number of seats held will trump the standard seniority system, there is a chance that they will be losing some longtime and dedicated fans from owning season tickets.
