You’ve just been Coppered!

Two prices?  Maybe the beer is cheaper too!

So, I’ve been away hob knobbing and travelling the U.K. and Europe over the last 2 hockey seasons but, I’m back, I’m employed, and I’m interested in buying tickets again.  Just picked up a pair for the 23rd as the Flames are in town and so is my dad, so it’s a good opportunity to sneak out on our own for a night.  As I was on the website though I discovered that there is a class distinction among teams now.  I’m not sure how they did their figuring, but it looks like it has something to do with the quality of opponent visiting Rexall.  I’m sure they’ll still charge in the Blue half of the chart when the Leafs get to town, but really, do they deserve it? 

 My dad won’t care if we have to shovel ice to be at the game or spend $500, just so that we can be there, but hopefully tickets won’t sell out so fast that it comes down to that.  Yes, my father is a Leafs fan…  Any season ticket holders out there going away for Christmas?

 Anyways, back to the pricing breakdown, I’ve been gone for 2 years so maybe this isn’t a new thing.  Anyone else know?  And how do the teams feel that get “Coppered” so to speak?  Are they insulted and try harder to earn the ticket holders respect or are they dejected and fearful of what degrading acts may befall them the next time they come to town?

So I picked up my mini pack Tuesday afternoon. 2 seats to the 3 game pack with the Caps, Flyers and Kings. I had to get the gallery because the colonnade was sold out for my group already.

What did you get?

Update: Just bought a 6 game pack too. The one with the Islanders.

I Willingly Want This?

Guess which one is the Oilers and which one is the ticket buyer

Its now mini pack time. Since I was poor prior to the lock out and refuse to give them money for the privilege of being on their season tickets waiting list now I get to decide on which mini pack that I want to shell out all of my money for. At least as a previous mini pack holder I don’t have to wade through half the shit that those poor lottery winners do.

And it might just be me but all of the mini packs suck this year. And expensive. Holy Fuck. I don’t remember paying this kind of scratch before the lock out. Continue reading 'I Willingly Want This?'»
