that sucks for you but really it doesnt matter since people will still charge the same prices..the way i see it is that the crowd will be much much more lively then in past games...1000+ real fans will make a big difference..looking forward to watching on tv
how does them giving 1000 tickets away in stead of selling those 1000 tickets change the "realness" of the fan?
Sure you can. But a lot of people can't afford to throw 100-300 down for a game. What about the fans that live in P.E.I. or down in Windsor, Ontario? It's a little more time consuming and costly for them to go to games. You shouldn't judge the diehard leaf fans by how many games they go to. Instead, how much they follow them and for how long of their lives they have been following them. Just my opinion at least.
you should follow it too and stop judging the season ticket holders

I'm wondering where their going to be giving out the tickets? Maybe by real sports, dundas sq, cn tower and ???
ps anyone know if their going to be showing the Habs vs Leafs game on the big screen outside the ACC?
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.
