That is awesome!! I love the casual, regular guy, tone to it.

Couldn't have a better President for this fanbase, imo.

I emailed him back saying thanks so much, and that just getting an email directly from him had made my day, and that this truly is a first class organization.

Wow wasn't expecting a response to this one, but Teddy strikes again

"Thx for the kind words, Tom. The fans are the ones who make this team/city great. I canít begin to tell you how blown away our players were by the crowd last night. Best regards, TNB"

This guy just gets it

I keep waiting for these guys to be exposed as just another group of money grubbing *******s. But it's not happening. They really come off as some of the most genuine people you could meet. These are the kind of people I want to give my business to and support as much as possible.

Guy is a class act and read it individually, here is my response from Ted ( also responded back in 30 minutes.)



Ted Black <Ted.Black>
1:46 PM (9 minutes ago)
to me, Fay


Hi Stephen-
First, thx much for addressing me by my more formal name and title- Mr. President Big Daddy Ted. Sounds so professional, eh? As for the store discount for out of towners, I am learning very quickly that the Sabres nation listens to WGR everywhere. My assistant, Fay, has agreed to help me and coordinate. I copied her. Best regards, MPBDT

How do I get into contact with Ted Black about the people who just get the tickets to resell them?!!? I am not talking about the casual fan who sells a game or two, but already there are seats on Stubhub for every game the same seats. There is a waiting list for people who actually want to go to the games, give them the seats.

Legally I'm not sure there's much they can do.

If you had the solution to that, you'd have sold it to the industry and be a millionaire many times over.

Find out who owns the ticket, and cancel them. The Sabres can kick out any STH they want. You don't legally own the seats, you rent them.

They told me $12 for shipping for a jersey. Might be different for Canada though.

Is Buffalo the worst offender?

If not, have other presidents of NHL hockey clubs done anything to fix it?

If so, what steps can be taken?


It's very "big govt." to tell people who drop thousands on tickets how they must use them. Freedom of choice, like it or not. Supply and demand.

Do you really think the team is going to waste its energy trying to stop this after a lockout?

But they can't kick out any STH for any reason under the sun.

It should be looked into and resolved in the offseason.

And that's very dumb obviously.

How many NHL teams? NBA teams? NFL teams? MLB teams? How many major artist music concerts everyday?

And one team is cracking down?




Supply and demand.
