The irony is people are saying Lou is bad at marketing, when this has absolutely nothing to do with marketing, it's about PR. I would have preferred Lou not admit this until after the series but let's face it, TONS of Devil fans have family members, spouses, best friends, etc that are Ranger fans. The campaign was a little hokey-ish. People aren't going to be guilted into not selling their tickets, they'll either not care and sell them anyway or they already were going to be determined to only sell them to Devils fans.
