It's really not about being a true fan, its being a considerate fan. Have a little sense that there is a waiting list of people that would love to receive the benefit. I thought being a fan was like a union, all there for the same thing.
I would say it 75% or more of your tickets are on Stubhub, then your membership should not be available to you next year. Same thing for the people that are out scalping every game. Get a detective every game to write down the seats that these guys are selling.
The Cubs opened up a can of worms that I see a lot of other teams looking into.
