You have got to be kidding me! There is no way Wirtz could do that to his beloved fans

The home games aren't on TV because Bill Wirtz doesn't want to give away a product that season ticket holders pay to see.

The attendance part is true too, but that is mostly due to Wirtz alienating fans over the years.

Wirtz won't play any home games on television. He wants the fans ( all 250 of them) to come to the games. They will show the away games on Comcast though.

OK, so I am planning a trip to Chicago to see the Hawks/Jackets, then the Bears Bills. IS it worth paying the $8 "convenience" charge on Ticketmaster, or should I just take my chances( ) on getting tickets at the box office? (seriously....)

"This marks the first increase in nine years, excluding the 198 front-row seats. The price for season tickets remains the same."

Cry me a river. 5 bucks? What's the big deal? Chicago is in the bottom of the NHL for ticket prices if not at the bottom.

You should see the price for Leaf tickets. Those will make you cry.

Go to the box office. They won't sell out the Blue Jackets.

Hahahahah

Red Wings, yes (with the amount of people that come from Detroit.) Penguins with Crosby, yes (for some reason.)

Blue Jackets? You can probably get seats by the glass from the box office - hour of puck drop.

That is real shame because Chicago was once the Mecca of hockey and under Wirts the team has become a team that does not air any of the hockey games on T.V and they dont even average more than 10 thosand people and know they raise the ticket prices. How many people do you think are going to come know. If bill wirts does not want the team then just sell it. IT is one of the oringal team so it should saty in Chicago, just with a new owner and mangemet.

For the Bears I would use ticketmaster. The hawks have no chance at selling out a game.
