from the Star Tribune,
Mark Stephan started purchasing four club seats to the Wild before the 2002-03 season. In June 2003, he renewed the tickets at $80 apiece per game. He also committed to purchasing the tickets for three years, with a guarantee the price of tickets would not be raised in that time. Stephan was puzzled and then some when he received his ticket renewal order last month and it called for an increase to $85 per ticket. His financial advice to himself was to send an e-mail to the Wild sales people handling his account, to remind them that he had been given the no-increase guarantee. ...It was at this point when Stephan received notice that it was a guarantee for three years, not three seasons. Here's a business that didn't offer its product in 2004-05 -- did not pay its talent and laid off much of its workforce -- but it figured its ticket customers should count it as a contract year for them?
