Covering The Lockout

from Ian Mendes of Sportsnet,

Here are 10 funny things that actually happened while I covered the CBA meetings this weekend in New York:

1. On Saturday afternoon, Donald Fehr was trying to come out of the NHL offices to meet with the media. Problem was, all the doors were locked and he didn’t have a security card to swipe through. So technically, Fehr is the only person in history to be simultaneously locked in and out by the NHL.

2. While we were interviewing Steven Fehr of the NHLPA on Saturday, a Rangers fan tried to disrupt the media scrum by screaming things like "you guys are greedy" and "fire Bettman". We politely asked the fan to not ruin our interview by yelling and he responded by saying, "I pay $40,000 a year for Rangers season tickets, so I can say what I want." Really, you pay $40,000 for Rangers tickets? Maybe you should stop buying season tickets from a scalper.

Kudos to the guy for managing to write an article that isn’t a 100% rehashing on what we already know and have known for months.

For four tickets in the gold club section at MSG it would exceed $40K. You want to pay more? You can get VIP rinkside for close to $40k PER SEAT and that isn’t the most expensive seat in the house. So it would appear the owners are the scalpers. You would think a reporter would know this. The guy may have been a jerk, but that doesn’t make him wrong.
