Personally, that's fine. It was obvious nobody showed up to by the tickets on day one anyways.

They really can't do this. I personally spent over $400.00 this weekend for my ticket, hotel, drinks, and food all of which benefited the Columbus economy. If I were just a regular BJ fan, I probably would have only spent $15.00 for parking like I normally spend at Pens home game and not purchased any concessions etc.

The fact is, when you have a ton of fans from other teams, they will spend more money than your regular fan base. I bet the R-Bar, other restaurants, and Hotels aren't complaining about their profits from these games. Heck even the BJ's shouldn't be complaining for making more money than usual do by actually selling out a few games a year. If anything, I would increase ticket prices for games against Pittsburgh and Detroit.

I'll front everyone's ticket for next year's game.


Seriously, they can go ahead and make sure that early sales only go to Columbus residents like they did for the playoffs if they want. I went to the first playoff game in the history of the Jackets franchise. We walked up to the box office an hour and a half before game time and walked right in.

If Columbus were closer, my money would switch hands right now for sure.
