Are NHL Fans Ready To Fork Over More Money For Tickets?

from Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun,

Here's something to ponder as we face the first month of winter without the NHL.

How would you feel if a thug apologized for lifting your wallet, at the same time he was casing your car with a plan to break into it later on?

That's basically what the megalomaniacs running the NHL are doing when they blather on about projected revenue growth of the game over the next several years.

Where do you think a good chunk of that revenue growth is going to come from?

Rising ticket prices, of course.

makes sense if 40% of revenues are gate driven.  With all the savings the clubs made on the last lock-out, they sure as hell didn’t pass any savings onto the fan.  Cause we’re the greatest fans in the world I guess.

Heck, I would even venture to guess that some people would be willing to pay extra to see replacement players.  Some seem to be demanding it to bring the cattle back in line.

I’d NEVER watch scab hockey. Ever. I’d also not pony up more for tickets. I bought four seats in Buffalo once and it was just shy of $300—and our backs were at the roof line! Enough.
