If you sell out nightly, you don't advertise or have tix on ticketmaster.
2. Why are Ranger tickets harder to sell this season, interest decline? Seems contradictory if the box score still reads 18,2000.
3. The simple fact remains, if you sell out every night, a real true sell out, you do not have the tix available for a road team to come in larger numbers.
It makes no sense that MSG has just as many Habs or Sabres fans as NJ or NYI when we sell out nightly.
1. Straight up ticketmaster.com has had tons and tons of seats available before game time for quite a few games. Also when you go to the Garden, especially in the lower bowl, there are many empty seats.
2. Rangers tickets are harder to sell for three reasons. First, the economy is bad, people are going to be less inclined to buy tickets for a Rangers game. Second, the team sucks. Third, prices keeping increasing each season to the point where people don't want to buy. We've had to sell so many tickets below face value this year, especially to Western Conference games. The only games we can easily sell are divisional games.
3. Because we don't truly sell out, because Rangers fans also sell their tickets to these people, because they may be willing to spend more money to go to a game at MSG since it's impossible to get tickets to to their own arena.
