Season Tickets Arrived

They came yesterday but no one was here to sign so they re-delivered today.

Don't want to spoil anything but a couple of things:

1) The theme is "10 Years of Staples" and the tickets have pictures of Kings "Staples Moments".

2) As such, the tickets are VERY DEPRESSING and totally pathetic. Note: Both introducing Bailey and unveiling the new 3rd jerseys are actual moments.

3) The Opening Night Ticket is an embarassment. I don't "collect" stubs but I usually keep the opening night one. It's really lame. Picture of Bailey would have been better.

4) Pre-season tickets are included in your book which is a change from previous years when we recieved box-office looking tickets in an envelope.

5) They are much earlier than years before. Maybe it has to do with taking our money a lot earlier than before

So be on the lookout for your package.

The Kings' marketing department may be the single most pathetic, incompetent, and inept bunch of morans whose work product I have ever had the unfortunate circumstance of watching. They have managed to render excitement impotent. Every year, I am embarassed at their performance. As marketing is very near and dear to my heart and something I excel at, it is ****ing painful to see their work.

Did you get yours Zad or do you just get seats off of Die-Hard

Seriously, these are the worst looking tickets I've had and I've had seats since 2001-02.

Let's just hope because the focus is all about the on-ice product because these are pretty horrid.

Thunderlips is right, they can't sell good hockey so they have to sell us a man in a bear suit. And coke!

I saw the title of this thread and I thought I'd come in here and read how pumped you guys are.

I guess I can understand though. You just got a ****load of Kings tickets. I'd be pissed too.

You got coke? At least I could've sold that. The rest of this crap is well, just crap.

O'RLY??

Looking at the last book it appears you are right...about last year anyways. I think you and I have different definitions of "several". If it's been for more than 3 years now then I am scared to turn 30 in a year because I am really starting to forget things.

I hope that's not the evidence for your "complaining" comment as that isn't a complaint. I apologize though if I find it lame to have the cover of my ticket book, the thing I'll see every time I pull a ticket out, have the following on it:

Half of Kopitar
Palffy,Deadmarsh and Miller
Wayne "Dick" Gretzky in the suit he wears to coach a division rival
Felix Potvin!?!
Robitaille 2x
Brown
Eric Belanger celebrating his OT goal

I'm sorry, but that is a pathetic display. I thought we were trying to move forward and get rid of this losing culture, not f'ing celebrate it. How about some Doughty or some Simmonds? How about something that relates to the current team for crying out loud?

And my buddies I share seats with will be stoked to have an opening night ticket that simply reads "BigKing's Real Name and The LA Kings vs. Phoenix" on a bland background. I wonder if my cap hit will count for the entire season since I'm only playing on opening night.

Top to bottom Mr. Lombardi says...top to bottom.

How's that for complaining? Zad mentions how marketing is near and dear to his heart and my degree is in public relations. As people who understand what goes into this type of stuff and pay for it, it's sad to see that this is the final product. Flash drives? Give me the best work on the items that will be used more than once, i.e the damn tickets.

No, it wasn't.

Everything that followed after the above quote surely is, however...


Seriously, are you really that worked up about the tickets? Who cares if they choose to celebrate the few meager bright moments over their 10 years at Staples? Last year's tickets had pictures of the current team as I recall. Frankly, I never even look at the tickets after the first day I get them, other than to verify I have the right ones for whatever game I'm attending.

I care about how the team performs, not how it is marketed. Nothing sells a team like winning. I enjoy it if we get a particularly cool freebie with our tickets, but I don't get too worked up if we don't. I've got enough Kings stuff to last a lifetime

Greased up pigs are very elusive, but so rewarding if when you finally catch it.

I don't care what is on the ticket as long as we get cool stuff.

The ticket upgrades arenice and the photo album is well bound.

Things like buying tickets at the STH price all year around is good value too.

I would rather have value like this instead of a scarf or blanket or something.

After a comment like that, and with your reputation on this board, the picture conjured up in my ming is truly frightening.

Free Jerseys are nice, but a(nother) stupid Luc Robitaille message, this time on a flash drive and a photo book? The arrival of the tickets didn't bother me, in fact, seeing that the first pre-season game is Sept 15 got me a bit excited. But there is little doubt that the AEG/Kings marketing arm is still run in classic Lie-weekly fashion -- without a clue.

Should I ask what your MING is?

Also....what reputation are you speaking of?

Ron, before you start jibba jabbering in a thread about Kings tickets, you need to worry about these tickets first:

I'm not really as worked up as I sound. I'm very excited for the upcoming season but to read through these "Staples Moments" and see Felix Potvin on the cover of the ticket book, well, it reminded me why it is always a bad idea to get ones hopes up for a new Kings season.
