    Ever wonder where all the Pats tickets went after the 10:00 AM sale on May 13th?

    http://www.stubhub.com/new-england-patriots-tickets/?event_id=279918

    The lowest price is $108 for an SRO seat - more than double face value.

    There's also one seat in the 100s going for $353 - nearly triple face value.

    Disable Jersey

    This is the big thing that pisses off the Pissah about Kraft & the entire NFL. There's a 'wink wink' process whereby agents for Stub Hub et. al. all buy season ticket seats and resell them at outrageous markups far exceeding any handling costs. Meanwhile, if my season tickets buddy with seats front row on the Pats 45 behind the D resells any game that he can't attend (like outa town on a business trip) he risks losing his tickets.

    I hope the suit is successful.
