What?

 

You also seemed to be under the impression I went to the food drive game.  Not once did I ever say I did.  I also never said you did mention any names.  And you tell ME to work on MY reading comprehension skills?

 

BTW, notice how I put the YOU in quotation marks?  I did that for a reason.  Because I knew you didn't call him out specifically.  You called everybody out asking about their free ticket vouchers.

Yeah, you didn't say you went, but you did say this:

 

Yea that part pisses me off. Why can't we at least know what section and seat it is? Managent is really starting to piss me off.

Uhh, really, management is pissing you off by not letting other people know where their free damn tickets are gonna be? Management can tell everyone to shove it and anyone who doesn't want their voucher because it'll be boo hoo too hard to find friends to go, can give theirs to me because I'm not a whiner and I will either find people or sell em the old fashioned way, by standing outside holding tickets, mumbling to people as they walk by!

1. My free ticket had nothing to do with the food drive.

2. The only reason I want to know is because it's only one seat and I might not be able to go. I have a friend who would go, but he wants to bring his gf. He's willing to pay for her ticket. Unfortunately since I don't know which seat it is, he won't know which seat to buy for his gf.

3. Management came out and basically accused all STH of bring brokers. So they made a policy to ensure we can't maximize our profit if we were to use the resale market. Most STH aren't looking to make profit when they sell their seats. I took a $250 hit last year and I'm fine with that.

So just give/sell the ticket to someone else who will go without having to bring someone. Shouldn't be that difficult especially if you're giving it away. But, it goes back to the point of just not donating food and accepting the ticket without any criticism. It's all a moot point from your end anyway because you weren't involved in the food drive, but you did offer your form of criticism and i think that's what ATLL was getting at. 

 

Sure, most STH aren't looking to make a profit, they just don't want to eat tickets if they can't go for some reason. Some understand there's no demand for the tickets most of the time unless they're selling them for half or less and others don't. Management knows that you do have those STH that see the Rangers, Flyers, Red Wings and STH events and know it's easy money in their pocket and those are the ones they want cut off. Also, you do get those STH's who fancy themselves as pseudo ticket brokers especially with the ability to buy additional seats/ticket packages.

It's not that easy to give away a single.  Not many people go by themselves.  I'm just one of those weirdos who does.

 

Regarding the food drive, I think it's a great thing the Devils did.  I think them giving away vouchers for free tickets was more of a Thank You for all those who decided to contribute to the cause.  I don't think everybody who did donate did it just for the free tickets.

 

Well of course there are people looking to make a profit when they purchase season tickets.  But I think the percentage of STH's who do is a very small percentage.

they would have collected a lot less food if they didnt offer something to award people to donate to the drive.. many people like myself would not have even attended had it not be for the opportunity to get tickets for another game at the cost of a donation... especially when you have the drive on a friday and a more attractive opponent on the night right after.. this was clearly an attempt to attract as many people to the friday night game as possible by offering the voucher..and im sure it worked but the atmosphere in the building was one of the worst so far this season and it was quite empty as well.

If the opportunity for free tickets for future games didn't attract people, what in the hell will?

thats what im saying its something they did to try to lore people to the game, if they didnt do that god i dont even wana know how much sh!ttier the attendance would have been. .. and honestly who cares if someone wants to sell and someone wants to buy that voucher.. i mean in what way shape or form does it affect anyone else? people must really have no lives if this is what theyre wondering about.. that voucher is a great deal to someone with a family or group of four that want to go to the game 4(most likely lower level seats) to a game especially if a family were to pick that up for $70 that normally couldnt afford to go and the seller maybe needs the extra money or cant attend.. who cares if hes selling it he still went out and got that voucher just like anyone else.. its his choice to do what he wants to do and as i said can be a real treat to others who maybe just cant afford the outing at a regular price. to think someone took the time out of their day to go searching to find people selling their ticket vouchers is fvcking bonkers.. some people just down right have no life at all.. just nothing better to do.

*Sigh* :rolleyes:

 

You threw tamper tantrums like a 10 year old that i couldn't stop "picking" on you :giggle: , yet you STILL can't resist talking about me like it's a one way street (and playing sly by not mentioning me by name....a little game you enjoy playing then go all coy about it).  So again, you're not only the most ineloquent person here, you also contradict yourself to the point where you don't even know what you do. Maybe in your daily post-a-thons it's a fact you often overlook. :whistling:

 

But all this coming from someone who said a few posts up they wouldn't have attended if they couldn't get free tickets. 

 

You're really a piece of work.  :blink:

im a piece of work..thank you. im not getting into conversation with you further then this for you are a waste of time,a lost cause, have a serious lack of knowledge(it shows quite often with the sh!t that comes out of your mouth) and have way too much time one your hands constantly trying to police what everyone does.

I'll admit I was kinda on the fence about attending the game Friday and the voucher was really the thing that sealed the deal for me. Well that and my girlfriend ended up going to a birthday party so I had some free time so why not lol.

But this was also the 4th year in a row that I donated to the food drive and when I attend the HFC and toy drive I have always donate and the coat drive I donate when I have an older coat I don't use or a fleece I got brand new from one of my company's vendors that I won't use. I always got those silly raffle tickets in the past but never counted on ever winning as I just like doing it.

But I def got to lol at the guy trying to get $70 for that voucher. If he believes that he will get that then I have a bridge to sell him.

Wahhhh I went to the game to get a voucher wahhh.

 

Shut the fvck up. We donated food and we get the voucher. Its a win win. I probably wouldn't have brought 6 cans if not for the voucher. Guess I am a bad person.

He'd be lucky to get half that, especially knowing you could sell the voucher and still try to use the code before the other person has a chance to.

if the guy really wants to sell the tickets he should just redeem the tickets himself and then sell the actual tickets on stubhub or craigslist

That would probably too much effort for that clown and then between the time he redeems it on 11/24/13 and when the game is about 3 days later, it doesn't give him much time to sell.

That guy sold me my 1988 and 1997 division champs banners.. From what I've heard, he routinely tries to flip freebies or will buy things like banners at low prices (from people who don't know better) and then flip them for huge profits on eBay.. He's definitely a Devils fan, but doesn't mind making as much off the team as possible
