Maybe opening up tickets to anybody regardless of where they live in the world, would invite fans (tourists) of other teams to visit Winnipeg (and spend money in Winnipeg).
Sorry, if that comes across rude, but I'm really ticked off right now, because the March 9th game (Jets vs. Flames in Calgary) is already sold out. So I can't go to Calgary to see the Jets, and aparently I shouldn't be allowed to see a Jets game in Winnipeg because I don't have a Winnipeg postal code. And the Jets don't play in Edmonton this year.
razorsedge I meant no malice with my statement about who should get the tickets. Under normal circumstances I would agree to have the tickets open to everyone. But the circumstances are not normal. Thousands of winnipegers (myslef included) were turned away in getting season tickets. And the team
based in Winnipeg. I'm sure you are deserving in getting tickets as you are you are true fan. And thats what I really meant to convey. I want true fans to go to these games. My fear is that causal/upperclass fans living in larger regions, (toronto, montreal, vancouver) will dominate/skew the amount of people who signed the form, reducing the odds of real fans getting the tickets.
