A possible reason why the Eagles don't spend money

Scalping in Birdland?



http://www.philly.com/mld/philly/14903101.htm


LINCOLN Financial Field's scalping policy, as stated on its Web site, prohibits "the resale of an event ticket at a price higher than face value, regardless of the price paid for the ticket and regardless where the resale occurs."

Don't most teams technically only allow you to sell tickets for ~25% over face value?

Whats wrong with that. Most teams do not want people hoarding all the tickets so they can turn around and make a profitt off the fans. I would think they are protecting the fans who would have to pay the higher price and the team would not see any of those profitts anyway.That why Danny and the front office have been going after season ticket holder who only sell their tickets for a higher price.

Danny and Co. are going have people who try to sell their parking passes for a profit too. I bet there's plenty of money in that trade.

Well, the issue apparently is that the Eagles put single season tickets on sale, and they were sold out literally minutes later. Apparently, a very large % of the tickets went to this brokerage, razorgator, and the only way to get single game eagle tickets is to go through them. I don't know if its legal or not, but it certainly is fishy.

Re: A possible reason why the Eagles don't spend money

the association between the eagles and razorgator.com is something the league will probably look into. when your tickets are gone in a matter of minutes and the team it self is promoting a ticket broker, something stinks

It's so bad that you can smell it over the rest of the town.

Yeah we caught a whiff of that stink here in D.C., but the Skins handled that stink by revoking their season tickets.
