30 winners a day- reposting so everyone gets a chance :)

I like that I'm already entered. I have to admit I didn't think we would get anything so I am quite happy and proud of the Hawks for doing the right thing.

RayP 01-17-2013 02:56 PM

Went ahead and signed myself and the fiance up. Guarantee she wins, because she NEVER checks her email.

Dont see any discounts on tickets....


As I predicted, of course.

zytz 01-17-2013 02:57 PM

Yep- seems like lots of teams are doing things only for STH's... which I sort of understand because a lot of teams probably don't have the problem the Hawks have, which is a long ass STH wait list. Glad they are doing stuff for everyone.

They're making way too much money on the tickets to do that. I can't blame them for that. We really are lucky to be getting anything, this is the Chicago Blackhawks, and doing at least this much is a VERY big step forward for them.

I hate that they make these contests for people of Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana only. I mean I get it to a certain extent but there are HAWKS fans all over the world. Many posting here. I would love a chance at winning one of these prizes.

That being said, good luck to everyone here!:yo:

Can't wait to laugh in your face when they announce all kinds of promotions and discounts later in the week.

Chances are McD is gonna plant a Blackhawks worker to win those prizes anyway. He can sell those items for money, first and fore most. Lets not get ahead of ourselves.

I hope they go by proximity to the U.C., hehehe.

Are there any tickets for sale at this point?

digdug41982 01-17-2013 03:03 PM

Baby steps, this is an organization that has consistently pissed and shat on the faces of its fans. These little things are really a good sign and a major step into modern times for them.

This.

Of course everyone wants discounted tickets, but realistically, this is about as good as it gets for this franchise.

Especially since gate receipts are still the main source of revenue for every team in the NHL. After already losing half a season's worth of those, did you really expect Wirtz or McD to take a cut out of their best revenue stream?

STs are getting a $100 gift card as well, not sure if you saw.

I thought maybe there'd be some food or merch discounts. I was wrong. Who gives a ****?

You predicted there'd be nothing. So you were more wrong than I was. I was 1 for 2, you were 0 for 1. I win.

Yeah, I heard that on the radio, didn't want to rub it in but yeah, I'm pretty happy about that. Other STH in other cities get all kinds of **** every year, so this is really a first for us. They send us a book every year at Christmas, a couple small things after the Cup win but this is a nice gesture.

Martini is all about predictions and will gloat when he gets a prediction right nobody other than him gives a rat's ass about.

Also, signed up. I hope I get something, but the odds are low.

TorMenT 01-17-2013 03:16 PM

Ill be signing myself up when I get home. Good luck everyone!

I've sat in the last 3 rows many times, the view is still great. Will be up there on Tuesday.

cherrypik 01-17-2013 03:17 PM

I'm fine with that. What about gameday promo's? They have updated if they are going to give magnetic calendars away and/or bobbleheads to certain games.

Actually, I didnt predict nothing outside of another red carpet treatment where the players can high five the fans. Strawman again.


Now, about those discounts......

Actually, you said:

Wait, you think McDough is gonna give merch or tickets a discount? Nah, isnt happening. Theres very little interest in the Hawks outside of the people who actually go to the games, he isnt gonna get rid of money that easy.
Looks to me like he's giving merch.

who needs discounts when you have a super secret private stream to games that looks better than real life?
