I apologize in advance it this isn't considered "football related", but I just had to rant a little! Steelers tickets went on sale this morning at 10am. I was logged into Ticketmaster (also the devil) several minutes prior to 10am, and continually refreshed the page until the tickets went on sale. I tried EVERY home game of the season, and NO TICKETS available for ANY of them! And this all happened in less than 20 minutes of the tickets going on sale! I understand free-market economics and all that crap, but it's absolutely ridiculous that in this day and age the Average Joe football fan CAN'T take his family to a game without shelling out at least 4-5 times face value for a damn ticket! Everyone knows that the Ticket Brokers use bot computer programs to flood Ticketmaster the second the tickets go on sale for events and buy up every last ticket within seconds. Moments later these same tickets are on sale on their respective sites for 4 times face value. It's absolutely infuriating, and I just can't understand why these ticket pimps aren't put out of business. I understand that they have the right to buy the tickets, but it's unfair that their high-tech buying systems make it impossible for anyone else to have a fair shot of landing those same tickets. As angry as I am about it all, the problem REALLY lies in the consumers' willigness to pay these ridiculous prices. Until people boycott these prostitutes, nothing will change. The NFL will just continue to be a league where only the wealthy, well-connected, or VERY lucky have the privelage to enjoy the games live. I know....bring on the bashings. But I for one am PISSED, and tired of the BS that is ticket brokering! Looks like I'll be watching from my sofa again this year. Grrrrrr..... The Devil! The Devil I tell ya!
