Just got response back from them.

"Good Afternoon,

I appreciate your patience.

I have sent over the names of the players below and advised our coordinator's that these people are to be on your team. We are unable to provide official Jerseys but we have secured Cubs polos for the entire group to be worn during the game. We would need to get the sizes for each of the players below.

I have also attached the copy of the Kosher order form. Please fill this out for your group and I will get it sent off to the catering service right away.
 
Additionally, each player is able to bring along a guest to watch at the cost of 1,000 Starpoints each. We will need to confirm with each participant if they intend on bringing someone to watch. I am happy to reach out to the individual members to confirm this however can you please let me know if you are going to be bringing along anyone to watch?


 
I look forward to hearing back from you."

 Not happy at all. They basically ignored everything I asked for except letting us play together. They never gave me a reason for the error, they don't want to give us jerseys and they didn't mention anything about refunding me the 15k for all this hassle. Any advice on how to reply? @Dan ?

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Just say you appreciate her help, this is very disappointing when you had confirmation you got the package and can she please address the other points in my email.

Namely:
and list them all.

As I said, the correct argument was to ask for them to honor the 110k rate that their site said it was.
You're making a difficult argument.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

the issue with using that argument was that everyone already got themselves an individual package and would've been a bigger hassle for spg to refund everyone

true but I thought this was a better approach- although I still believe I can try to get them to honor the package at 110K

At least you'll have more opportunities to wear a polo shirt then a jersey.

So go for it. It's just funny how they think a $20 polo makes up for then stealing the team out from under you.

That's a minor detail

It was worn at a game played on Wrigley Field

I have the pictures to authenticate it

Nah, you'd be surprised at how many people there are. I'd say we might be 40%
