Throughout the 2015-16 Cavs regular season and 2016 NBA playoffs we received feedback from a large contingent of Wine & Gold United Members expressing concerns over the bidding process on the Flash Seats Marketplace. As a means to find an effective solution and create a more member friendly experience, we opened the Flash Seats Marketplace for the 2016-17 Cavs regular season on September 29th with the bidding feature deactivated. This initiative was created as a “test and learn phase” to gain further feedback from members like you. After a month-long discovery process, in which we heard from dozens of Wine & Gold United Members, we are happy to share that as of today, Thursday, October 27th, we have re-activated the bidding feature on the Cavs Flash Seats Marketplace. As a means to produce the most efficient bidding method for those members looking to sell seats on the Flash Seats Marketplace, any buyer who wishes to place a bid on your seats must start their bid at a price point that is at least 50% of the per game variable price you paid as a member. We believe this will eliminate many of the concerns expressed by members last season.

On Tuesday, the Clinton campaign officially announced the concert would be held in Cleveland on Nov. 4, just four days before the election.We assume they mean on Friday, but we'll update when that clarification is made.
“Jay Z will be joined at the concert by special guests to encourage unity and urge Ohioans to support Clinton by voting early or on Election Day,” the Clinton camp said in a statement.
Tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis from Friday.
The concert — perhaps the centerpiece of the “closing argument” strategy built to turn out this group — would be a major coup for the Clinton campaign, which has struggled to excite young black voters. It’s a key part of the coalition they need to build to defeat Trump in several battleground states, but especially Ohio where she has trailed more consistently than in most swing states. High turnout among younger voters of color would make it virtually impossible for Trump to win.
Senior Democrats, meanwhile, have signaled publicly that Clinton has indicated staff should do whatever it takes to turn out young black voters and the concert is viewed as one of the last major voter mobilization moves the campaign will make before election day.

Pressure from the commissioner might actually turn the dial on this debate. (If he decided to apply pressure instead of waffling.)
