And disabling barcodes next season? So they're penalizing people for selling on their own secondary market?! That's rich. Or are they just doing it for StubHub sales (more likely)?
Stubhub is the number one enemy to a lot of venues. It's actually funny. The Yankees a few years ago was actually promoting SH during their games. Just a couple of years later, they ended up suing SH and pretty much blacklisted them.
It would be akin to going to Home Depot, buying 20 drills for $100 each, and then selling them in your own store for $150. As a former employee of HD, I know for a fact that we've caught and stopped people from doing this.
Yeah uh, stupid question but how would they know if you're not the one using the tickets?
Do the Devils get a cut of the sales through that NHL Ticket Exchange? Because if they do, I can see why they're trying to force StubHub out of the equation.
Yes the team does get a cut off all TE sales. Actually I think the league as a whole does.
I have been traveling a lot this year and have sold a bunch of games.. getting that letter would really pvss me off. They are your tickets to do as you please. This is outrageous.
I don't believe it's that simple. Otherwise, why would this be such an issue?
It's unfortunate this is what businesses have to stoop to- I'm sure all of these owners are free market proponents when the government tries to limit their opportunities, but when it's a fan just trying to get in the door to support a team that he bleeds red for, all of a sudden we need to regulate the market to maximize profit.
If a lot of tickets are being re-sold on stubhub the only thing the organization should take away is that their tickets are overpriced. Bring your price down to what the market demands and you won't have this problem.
I agree prices are too high.
They won't sell lowers for in the $30's and uppers for $10-$15 for midweek games vs sh!t opponents
That is what the MARKET commands
That guy Eric is a complete tool, and this is his initiative
The sooner the team gets rid of this asshat, the better
Yesterday wouldn't have been soon enough
A lot of STH's love Eric. He's willing to give you deals if you speak to him enough.
I was labeled as broker last season during the lockout. The new schedule didn't work for me and I had to sell the majority of games but I wanted to keep my seats because I love them and the people around me.
They probably just didn't take me off the list for this year.
I luckily made it to 15 games last year out of my 24. I hope they understand with the way the schedule was last year that it was very difficult for people to make it to every game.
