i'm a fan i'm from out of town i purchased them will sell most of my tix will hope to fly in for the playoff games w/ money made off the reg season
i doubt a lot of the purchases were by non-fans...
Just from my experience through the SBL process and trying to upgrade my seats. Monitoring forums and such to hear what people were buying. Keeping an eye on the secondary market and seeing lots of ads like this http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/tix/4318724262.html. Average joes had a hard time upgrading their seats within the same price range. But if you wanted to buy MORE seats in a different section you got a direct line and the pick of the litter.
I got an "in" from a friend who was a season tix holder but elected to buy Club Seats. Since he got Club Seats they allowed him to give me his option for his assigned seats (section 225). I purchased them on the first or second day they were available to Season Tix holders so I was right near the front of the line when it came to moving my seats.
Basically...I got pretty lucky in terms of getting into the section I wanted. Both the section I started in and the one I ended up in were at the same pricepoint.
