#1253424 Check out what the Devils front office just sent me along with my play

Posted by skeeter on 17 March 2014 - 02:02 PM

The issue is that this only applies to what they call 'legal scalping'. Both NJ and NY have passed harsh restrictions on how much you can resell tickets for, what you have to do to be eligible to sell tickets, and where you can sell the tickets. In other words, the protection you have mentioned pretty much protects no one.

I think this is important for the board to see so I have pasted the law below and I have picked out and enlarged the operative clauses beforehand.

From the NJDCA Consumer Fraud Act:

Operative sections that I have picked out:

56:8‐27 Requirements for ticket broker.
2. No ticket broker shall engage in or continue in the business of reselling tickets for admission to
a place of entertainment without meeting the following requirements:

a. Owning, operating or maintaining a permanent office, branch office, bureau, agency, or other
place of business, not including a post office box, for the purpose of reselling tickets;

b. Obtaining a certificate of registration to resell or engage in the business of reselling tickets from
the director;

c. Listing the ticket broker's registration number in any form of advertisement or solicitation in
which tickets are being sold for the purpose of purchase by the general public for events in this State;

d. Maintaining records of ticket sales, deposits and refunds for a period of not less than two years
from the time of any of these transactions;


56:8‐32. Display of license; copies
Immediately upon the receipt of the license issued pursuant to this act, the licensee shall display and
maintain his license in a conspicuous place in his principal office for reselling tickets. He shall request copies
of the license from the director for the purpose of displaying a copy of the license in each branch office,
bureau or agency and the director may charge a fee for the copies.



b. No person other than a registered ticket broker shall resell or purchase with the intent to resell
a ticket for admission to a place of entertainment at a maximum premium in excess of 20% of the ticket price
or $3.00, whichever is greater, plus lawful taxes. No registered ticket broker shall resell or purchase with the
intent to resell a ticket for admission to a place of entertainment at a premium in excess of 50% of the price
paid to acquire the ticket, plus lawful taxes.


56:8‐34 Reselling tickets prohibited in certain area; exceptions.
9. a. No person shall resell or purchase with the intent to resell any ticket, in or on any street,
highway, driveway, sidewalk, parking area, or common area owned by a place of entertainment in this State,
or any other area adjacent to or in the vicinity of any place of entertainment in this State as determined by the
director; except that a person may resell, in an area which may be designated by a place of entertainment in
this State, any ticket or tickets originally purchased for his own personal or family use at no greater than the
lawful price permitted under this act.


56:8‐37. Violations; penalty
Any person who violates any provision of this act shall be guilty of a crime of the fourth degree.

#1242456 First Devils game you went to live

Posted by skeeter on 29 January 2014 - 06:44 PM

http://www.hockey-re...9303290NJD.html

 

Devils vs. Sharks, March 29th, 1993.

 

Stephane Richer scored a natural hat trick, Chris Terreri had the shutout.  All five goals were scored in the second period, and of course I was in the upper bowl behind the net the Devils shot at in the first and third periods. The Sharks were in their second season, terrible, and in the midst of something like a 13 game road losing streak. This was their 10th road loss in a row apparently.

 

I've been to hundreds of games since, and have yet to see a second Devils hat trick in person.

Wow I was at that one too, and in section 223.  It was my first Devils win since my first game in 1988.  I specifically asked my father to get tickets to that game just so we could see them win.

#1213794 Devils getting rid of R&R part 2 as their goal song?

Posted by skeeter on 05 October 2013 - 12:32 PM

Posted my idea elsewhere so here it is....

 

You know what would be funny, they bring back R&R and right after HEY! they blast the goal horn and drown everybody out. The people crying about their song get it back and the people crying about the YOU SUCK! wouldn't hear it. Lots of teams blast their goal horns a bunch of times for no reason.

#1167905 Devils Fans

Posted by skeeter on 01 February 2013 - 03:09 PM

I've noticed the attitude of the fans a bit different than last year. Probably some more bandwagoners than usual in previous years, and a lot of people railing on Kovalchuk or Brodeur or Salvador for messing up; it's as if you need to be a play-by-play critic to be a real hockey fan. Sometimes I like empty seats more than a full section of loudmouth bandwagon fans. "KOVEEEEEY WHAT THE HELL DO WE EVEN PAY YA FAW?!?!" I feel like I'm at MSG during a horrible powerplay, hate those kind of fans.

I got in more arguments at the Devils-Capitals game with Devils fans than I did with Caps fans. If Kovy didn't shoot, they were cursing him out. If Kovy did shoot and it went wide (for a tip-in attempt), they were screaming bloody murder. When he scored the goal in OT, I turned around and mouthed "fvck YOU" to a fan that was railing on him the whole game. It's hard to enjoy a game with all that uneducated negativity in the air. If I wanted to be surrounded by Rangers-type fans, I would go to Rangers games.


This. I had the same problem at the Caps game. Were you in 102? This guy in front of me in a LANGENBRUNNER jersey was all over Kovy all night. Just didn't know sh!t about the game, ripping him for the dumbest things. I had finally had it and yelled "yeah we need a guy like like Langenbrunner back, someone who gave an effort every night." That OT winner was so satisfying.

Last night I'm in 110 and this doofus in front of me is screaming bloody murder at Larsson all night. "GET OFF THE ICE LARSSON!! YOU SUCK!!" He actually stood up and leaned over the railing to yell it a couple times. It's reasons like these I subscribe to the Carlin logic: "Think of how stupid the average person is and then realize half the population is dumber than that." That definitely applies to our fan base.

Sorry to get all hall monitory.


No that's how every Ranger fan starts on this board, then their true blue arrogant @sshole attention whore colors show. It's happened with every single one of them over the years. Same goes with every Ranger fan I've ever known. Douche bag is in their DNA.
