The Sens just give a sections' worth of those tickets to the universities to sell. If the universities have any left by a certain date, they get put back into Capital Tickets (where they can be purchased under the Family 4 Pack deal).

At least that's how I understand it.
Ugh, this was THE WORST as an Usher.

What ends up happening, is that you have a section full of rowdy, drunk university students, and then you sprinkle in a few families with REALLY young kids who bought the tickets as the "family 4 pack".

It's an absolute nightmare to work. You get drunk university students who won't stop swearing, and parents with 3-year olds who are enraged that the "family" tickets they bought have landed them and their pre-school kids, essentially, in the middle of a university bar.

I have nothing against drunken college kids going to games, and I have nothing against parents who bring their kids to games. Both have that right... but putting them together in the same section is just the worst idea ever.
