The STH isn't the person dropping money on beer and food etc etc. Those are the folks who go to enough games that the experience isn't the shiny new toy effect. These are the folks that know how to do games on the cheap.

MSG doesn't want those kinds of people in the seats. They want people drinking beers, buying food, picking up t-shirts etc etc. That is where the real money for MSG is. Those are the 2ndary folks which is the only reason why MSG would tolerate the market.

I suspect that they will move to take larger percentages of the 2ndary market as well as increase ticket prices.

I don't think they really care about pricing out STH.
In a way you are right. BUT, they need the season ticket holders. Without season ticket holders many of the games would not sell out.
