Just know that most of us here are decent guys who are willing to give you fair value.

I've had to go to far fewer games this year than I have in past seasons because I simply can't afford it. I'm always willing to pay somewhat above face for tickets, I just can't justify double or triple face when I'm trying to save for a wedding and a down payment on a house. ...At least I have MSG back though (TWC subscriber w/no other options).
As I said a majority of the guys on here are great and many are in your same situation(saving for house wedding going to college etc.) and that I appreciate. What irks me is when people post that they are only looking for cheap tickets and then they turn down a great deal and complain. I have had many PM,s from guys looking to take tickets off me at half price(as if they are doing me a favor). I am in my late 40,s and don,t make a lot of money but I am comfortable enough to help some younger fans by selling a bunch of games below face and I am not talking last minute tickets as I always post my group as soon as the schedule comes out.
That being said I hope the Rangers go on a nice run as I can see this team being good for a while
