The Devils are the first major sports franchise to offer a plan like this.

I stopped my season tickets in 2001 and it broke my heart.  I haven't been to the Rock and probably never will.  I am so glad I don't have money to go to games.  I understand what they are trying to accomplish but the pricing logic just befuddles me.

STH's, you will probably take special interest in this one, because it sounds similar to what the Devils have done with regard to secondary market resale restrictions: http://m.espn.go.com...toryId=12584885

The Devils policy is a little different.  I believe that they are saying, if you sell more than 5 games across any resale platform, you MAY be labeled a broker and have your ST's revoked. 

 

The Warriors aren't even trying to hide the hypocracy of TM Ticketexchange and are saying that you can sell as many tickets as you want on Ticketexchange, but can't use Stubhub or any other resale source (because the Warriors only get a cut of the resale money on Ticketexchange).  To me, that's actually worse than what the Devils are doing.  Hopefully Stubhub takes this case to the mat and wins in court.

I went to the Membership program presentation before yesterday's game.  It was quick and was only about 20 minutes and really no pressure at all.  I have to admit this is the first time I am actually somewhat interested in getting season tickets or at least try out this membership program, so it had some effect.

 

They also gave me 2 free tickets to the game last night as reward for just listening to them.  Got club seats 3 rows behind the Devils bench.  Can't complain about that!

Seems pretty similar to the Devils' policy, although a bit more strict. Devils' policy has more wiggle room. I can't see StubHub's case winning in court. At the end of the day, StubHub is an organized scalping marketplace. Sure it's legal, but will it win out against a giant like Ticketmaster in court? I can't imagine.

How did you find out about this?  I was a season ticket holder for the past 7 or 8 years and just stopped this season.  I was never contacted by the Devils about this.  You would think they would want to reach out to former season ticket holders to get us back.

They sent out a blast email to pretty much everyone who has given them their email for anything in the past. I responded by filling out the form and they called me about 2 weeks later. They sent the blast email about a month ago and I know many people who got it.

I went to a game where they went over the program as well. Before making a decision I'd like to know what our pricing would be for various sections and games.

Wat do I want as a fan?  I want to be able to say "Hey guys, lets go to a game tonight" and to be able to buy tickets at a reasonable price - have cheap parking and not some gimmick that tries to woo me like a real business.

 

It's hockey and I have my farm to table excursions I can plan -- the cost of everything is prohibitive and your distracting from either the hockey or the experience they are selling which is NOT hockey.

 

Honestly I miss the CAA days when I could drive up to a game on a Weds night and it was no big deal.  I wish sports went back to being sports not big businesses to be run... <_<

At least the Warriors are honest about what they are doing. The Devils have denied they get money from nhl ticket exchange, which is a blatant lie. At least the warriors don't lie to your face about it.

That being said I hope stubhub wins the case and comes after the Devils next.

Im waiting for the day when they contact me about this. I live in Ocean County so its impossible for me to go to every game. I sold almost half this season on stubhub. (And lost money)

Spoke to my old ticket rep at the Ducks game. He said they are definitely trying to make a push for physical cards instead of paper tickets. STH next season will still get paper tickets this season but expect cards for partial plans either this season or next.

 

Also, not sure if this has been mentioned, but:

 

The club seats will only be the 2 center sections now. The surrounding sections will be slightly cheaper, and you can get free food around the concourse every 15 minutes with your ticket.
