What is it, 50 bucks for the privilege of being on the wait list? Damn, that's more than I spent going to a handful of Jets games back in the day.

But hey, you have the opportunity to purchase some over-priced book before anyone else! How thrilling!

As far as NHL fan-suckers go, Winnipeg is in a realm all its own!
It's supply and demand, one of the most basic principles of business.

Winnipeg is FAR from the only market who does this, so to say Winnipeg is leading in NHL fan-suckers is not only disingenuous, it's wholly incorrect.

Finally, as stated earlier, the money you pay doesn't disappear, it's applied to future tickets. You get other benefits for reserving your spot in line as well. I think its a very good deal for the team and the fans.

You may want to do a little more research before you come to the Jets forum and attack the intelligence of waiting list members, since many of our forum participants are in fact on the waiting list.
