You could argue the Yankees did something similar in restricting the secondary market.
I suppose that ultimately if they want to get rid of the pure ticket brokers, there's a way to do it without being so ham handed about things. Although I still don't understand why it matters to the team. The brokers by the tix at regular season ticket holder prices, and it's not like there's a waiting list for Devils season tix, or that they're gauging the regular fan that wants to see a game.
The whole marketing plan of new ownership doesn't quite make sense to me, but I suppose we'll see.

Not implying that NO other team is doing this or some variation of. But that's a lot different than:
I guarantee you that just about every sports franchise has a similar policy in place.
And this has nothing to do with MB saying it...if ANYONE on this site had made a similar claim, I'd want to see a list of teams from that person, links, some kind of proof other than a personal "guarantee".
This whole practice comes off as very Big Brother to me on the Devils' part. I don't like it, especially when "non-guilty" people are getting letters.
I wonder if the Sixers did anything similar...
Great question, but since that team is in tanking mode right now, if such a policy isn't yet in place, maybe they're biding their time until the team is relevant again.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
