And I'm sure that more than a few local brokers would love the idea of being able to get away with automatically upticking the seats that they're selling for the games when the Hawks are visiting as they know that a slight increase on their end will still cost less for visiting Hawks fans than buying two tickets legitimately.
Yeah, it just seems like bad business.
