@TheNYRBlog Kev I was on Ticketmaster at 12 on the dot and I got nothing!!— Jennifer Geffe (@Jen9400) April 4, 2012
@TheNYRBlog Friend said when he finally got through, 1st & 2nd rounds were sold out. I'm going to depend on the kindness of lawyers for tix.— Sac's Place (@sacsplace) April 4, 2012
@TheNYRBlog what a scam. They only released obstructed view tix! And the chase presale was even worse! I emailed them calling them out... BS— steve t. (@JETSin20) April 4, 2012
...as always the true fan is priced out. I'm not trying to begrudge those Rangers fans who can afford the tickets, but I just don't like the fact that a middle income family has to take out a second mortgage just so they can attend a game. Every Rangers fan should have the opportunity to watch their favorite team live no matter what their income bracket is and that's just not the case anymore. And even if you could afford them it didn't seem like any were available.
..the first year I had season tickets was in 2006-07 and the first round of the playoffs in section 420 cost $32 per seat. Just six years later that same ticket costs nearly $100. That's disgusting.
