Re: Wouldn't the NFL Draft be a better ticket model?

Thank you very much for your response. I think you make many valid points. It certainly would be hard to judge virgin burners. Perhaps with Burning Man's emphasis on regionals a college or development or farm system for Burners could be developed where people would be drafted based on their 'perform...

Re: Wouldn't the NFL Draft be a better ticket model?

Burners would be picked based on the relative merits on how awesome of a Burner they are. And because 50,000 people would need to be drafted even if you are only a little bit of an awesome Burner who occasionally steals a bike or brings a huge sound system out to the Temple at 3am blasting Insane C...

Wouldn't the NFL Draft be a better ticket model?

I have mixed views about adopting a lottery system for ticket distribution. On one hand dealing with the new reality of ticket scarcity demands new thinking in ticket distribution modalities. On the other, its already a bit of a lottery in the early stages of ticket purchasing whether you get the ch...
