You've clearly misunderstood something I've posted.

I would guess that your odds of "getting lucky" tomorrow are greater than your odds of getting your hands on some tickets for the home opener.

Close. There are 16,000 season ticket holders. Including standing room, there are around 19,500 available seats.

For everything but the home opener, 2000 tickets are usually available on Ticketmaster during the presale and onsale. 500 get dropped later in the 7 days before the game.

The home opener typically has under 1,000 tickets available to the public.

how does them giving 1000 tickets away in stead of selling those 1000 tickets change the "realness" of the fan?

Instead, how much they follow them and for how long of their lives they have been following them. Just my opinion at least.
good advice.

you should follow it too and stop judging the season ticket holders

"The team will also giveaway 1,000 tickets through a variety of promotions leading up to the home opener, in addition to the more than 15,000 season seat holders receiving their tickets free of charge."

He means REAL fans that make noise and don't sit on their hands during the game. The fans that pack bars every game to watch a game. The ACC WILL BE LOUD on Monday, cause real fans will be in there.

I just realized, with the season going to late April, if the Leafs are playing meaningful games then, that place will be awesome. It's just screaming for "playoff viewing" - with this team this might be the closest we get for a couple years.

Maybe Eaton's Centre. Just a guess.

I should have brought my jersey to wear after work in Union Station. I doubt they'll be venturing too far away from the ACC anyway. Maybe as far north as the Eaton's Centre.

Wow, that'd be awesome. If it's after work I'll hop in my car and even drive the 1 hour it'll take me to get into the city for a shot at getting Leafs tix. Please, no pranks
