JWomp!

Hate to hijack the thread but I've been PMing you for months about those Devils black practice jerseys. Do you still have them for sale?

NEW JERSEY In keeping with the fact they are the Devils, New Jersey actually went with a villain by the name of Lex Lou-Lamoriello, an evil genius who finds ways to get around the salary cap until he is stopped in his tracks by Bett-man.

Unfair that you should HAVE to pay almost a 100% markup? Nobody is forcing you to buy the sticks.

The guy put in the time waiting in line, he can sell the sticks for whatever he wants. Would I buy anything from that sale for a markup? Personally, no, I wouldn't, because I'd rather put in the time in line myself and pay what the Devils were asking. But that doesn't mean it's not still a fair price. Like Ken said, it's a $200 stick. That's half off!

What about the people behind him in line that waited for almost the same amount of time that can't get any because he snatched them all up? "Tough loss" that at a team equipment sale some jackass is allowed to clean the place out to put money in his pockets? It's not illegal, and nobody is ever going to do anything about it. I just think it's a real douchey thing to do.

The people behind him probably should have gotten up earlier. It's common knowledge that the popular players don't last at this event. There were people there 9 hours before I got there at 7:30. Whatever Kovy sticks there were I figure they earned. But instead I slept in my bed and not Mulberry St and I still got most of what I hoped to get.

You have 4 options.
Settle for a lesser player.
Get up earlier next year.
Pay the marked up price.
Walk away.

I see no issues if he picked up a couple more than he needed in the hopes of swapping for a player he could not get.
I also agree with Chorske17 that he's reaching if he thinks a Kovy or Parise is coming his way for an Elias.

The first twenty-four people got there BEFORE 6AM. I know because I was in that group. NO one in there waited as long we did. I think to some extent, everybody helped out someone else in line in that group of getting items.

If you don't like "douchey" (whatever that means) things then don't be late. You are in control of your destiny when it comes to getting sticks. In all fairness, I only saw (with my own two eyes) 4 Kovalchuk sticks. I know 3 out of the 4 people who got them.

douchey
adjective
being an overall douchebag

I don't care when he got there. I know that if he didn't do it, someone else would have. I don't hate him, I hate what he did. I hate the cult of people who think that purchasing items at a sale just so they can turn around and sell them to other people is okay. I hate the jackass who screwed my little brother out of a hockey puck to make money.

This is essentially how the world works... I think your anger is misplaced.

I am in no way trying to offend the topic starter. I messaged him and if I had that kind of money right now, I would still buy one from him. I am just upset at the process. There was a definite and good reason we couldn't be at the equipment sale. So it's not like we were being lazy and letting other people do the work so we can get rewarded. Jamie was lucky enough to get a friend to pick her up a Clarkson stick and was only charged the real amount. Such is life right?

Can't use the word in the description. Please try again... Help me understand what a female cleansing has to do with someone reselling a stick?

This country was created with freedom in mind, freedom to do what you want in terms of a job, religion, business and many other choices. If you don't like those choices then either except it or move somewhere else. Maybe you can take Landon Donovan with you. What a waste of talent. The Algeria goal was more luck and being in the right place at the right time since Dempsey did all work and technically was offsides even though he was in the goal (but with the officiating who knows anymore).

Exactly. The price he is asking for that stick is beyond fair.

You've never heard someone say "you're a douche" before? Or are you just trying to be a smart alec.

I've heard it before, but I never understood it. If you think it is unscrupulous say so, if you think it is unethical say so, if you think it was overpriced SAY SO. I don't understand the "douche" comment and doesn't let me understand why you think it is wrong.

I'm not angry with you or LD. I'm disappointed in the US team. Landon Donovan is very inconcistent. I can think of 3 or 4 active players who derserve to play more than him.

I'm 18. If I used the word "unscrupulous", my friend would kick me in the nuts.
