That blows but I cant say that I blame you
It does and I feel for PSL owners as well. As I stated before, this isn't just a Panther problem, this is now the way of the world for all sports. If you want ANY college or pro season tickets you will have to poney up several thousand dollars just to get the option to buy season tickets. In college they call it Gamecock Club, Pirate Club, etc. This isn't any different than NFL. If you don't continue to pay that $ in college you lose your seats and if you want them back years from now you will have to go through the same process and it will take time to get your priority back. At least with PSL rights you can resale and recoup some of your investment. For college or most other sports, you don't get anything back. Not saying it is right, but it is just how sports is now. A buddy of mine has 2 lower level decent USC season tickets. He pays around $4k a year and these are "decent" seats.
Unless I am missing something, it really isn't any different for PSL owners. It sucks if you are hanging on trying to get your money back, but spending several thousand every year in season tickets waiting for your $10k investment (or whatever you spent) to come back doesn't make sense to me. I am into fishing and when it comes to hobbies, and watching football games is a hobby, you can't ever justify the $ spent. If you are trying to do this then you need to get a new hobby.
