Senators don't need Leaf fan money

Is it good business practice to sell tickets at a 20% discount, on condition the tickets not be resold to Leaf fans?. I guess it does suck to play in an arena where your home team Captain gets booed by the crowd. Anyway should the Sens be penalized for intentionally reducing HRR?

The thrust of the campaign, the email later summarized, was to “not allow (tickets) to get into the hands of fans for our rivals.”

That's brutal. It must really suck for actual Sens fans whenever Montreal or Toronto come to town.

Its going to be tough to legistale this one. One could always call themself a Sens fan to buy the ticket. Then what? Reveal the Leaf jersey during the game WWE style?

There's still a generational gap there. The modern franchise has only been there 20 years and there are still many fans of the Leafs and Habs beforehand and have kept the loyalty so this unique dynamic will be in place for a long long time

And this is going to be monitored how?

They're going to keep track of which seats were sold at the discount and then have the jersey [MOD: enforcer] go around and collect the seat #s of people wearing leafs jerseys?

Gimmie a break. If I'm reselling tickets I would sell them to the highest bidder. If it's a leaf fan then it'll be under the condition they wear something over their jersey till they get into the arena, BIG DEAL.

My brother is a big Sens fan and bought four tickets.

It just so happens his brother, his fiancée, and his best friend are all Leaf fans.

This thread was closed yesterday on the NHL board due to it divulging in to nothing more than an opportunity to bash fan bases.

Closed.
