I sold Big Ten Championship ticket on Stub Hub and I didn't have any idea who I was selling it to.
Lots of Stubhub tickets appearing from Michigan allotment
That needs to change. There's no reason why you shouldn't be able to know whom you're selling it to.
but I love going to away games. That would throw a major wrench in me getting tickets at a decent price. Nebraska is already going to be expensive enough, lol.
It's a free market. Why should you need to know who you are selling your ticket to? It's a ticket to a football game, not a gun. Besides, there is no way to verify fan allegiance on a ticket website.
Does anyone have 2 tickets for either Northern Michigan hockey games next week they'd be willing to sell?
Stubhub is neutral. It's the assholes who have enough money to have amassed "points" who are buying tickets and putting them on stubhub instead of giving Michigan fans the opportunity to buy them who really suck.
The office should get the ticket numbers and take all "priority points" away from anyone who put their tickets up on StubHub. If they did it the week before the game, at least there would be the excuse that "something came up and I can't go."
This is just a money grab, and the people doing it should be punished for gaming a system that is supposed to ensure that bona fide Michigan fans get tickets in the Michigan section. I say take away their season tickets and tell them they can start out at the bottom of the list.
is going to do penalize people with lots of points, ie the people who give the school a lot of money, to benefit those who dont. Thats right of the how to run an athletic department playbook.
So their donations to the AD should entitle them to garner outsized profit from their preferred access to unlimited tickets while limiting the ability of other fans to purchase tickets at face value?
In a word: yes. (That's what he's saying).
