The biggest issue is Drexel holds a "social event." They sell the chair backs, taking up those spots where those in attendance should be sitting. So what are you left with? More people in the seats watching the game rooting for the visitors than for the home team.

I get that Drexel views a basketball game as a social event, but they should promote what is occurring on the court, not the rubbing of elbows in the respective suites. If that is what they want to do, open the Blue and Gold room for the entirety of the game and put the game on the TV in there.

They way to solve this problem is to, well, solve the first problem to begin with. Sell more tickets. If Drexel could sell more season tickets, and get more people into the actual seats, then I'm sure they'd have no problem selling suite only tickets for those who want to make it a social gathering. If somebody wants a combo, suite/game ticket, then the game seating portion of the tickets should be in the GA bleachers only.
