Yes...and no.

This time a bunch of people got put in a category they didn't select (downgraded from In The Paint to High Post)
...but the issue in my mind is not so much being downgraded due to demand (understandable) but more that High Post being "better" seats than other possible options is really a matter of opinion. Although you could request to go another level down, you had to forfeit your assigned level to do that...and couldn't see the available seats in the "lower" level before making that choice. So a group of people who were at least willing to spend the highest amount per ticket weren't able to even see the available options after they were downgraded from their original request. Im not sure everyone would agree that the seats on the top row against the wall are "better" than a slightly lower seat in the curve...but that decision was made for you. Previously at least one could see all available seats. That said, I imagine many of those so eager to have the best seats in the In The Paint section will leave the High Posters fuming in their new perch for plenty of games by leaving the In The Paint seats empty. I hope I am VERY wrong and that the place is packed, but we've been down this road before...and for those who regularly attend games, it is quite frustrating.
