Yeah, that makes sense. I guess it's different if you're also talking about $135 seats or $50 seats. It's a big different in the amount of money you're going to eat.

Also, I agree that you should trust them and if they screw you to make them pay in advance. Personally, I make anyone who agrees to go with me to the game PayPal me first so that they can't back away at the last minute. Especially if I have 6 tickets for the game and they're $100 each. Don't want the group to back out last minute and eat $600 for no reason...
