I'm not a happy camper.
Every year I'm in the hunt for tickets to 2-3 Seahawk games. This year is the second time that I'm on Ticketmaster's site the very second it opens up for regular season tix for sale. I tried over and over for 90 minutes until the ENTIRE FRIGGIN SEASON was sold out and I could not get 2-4-6 tickets to any game!
What's up with that? Does the average Joe just not
get to buy tickets at face value and go to a game? Who gets to buy them? These same tickets that I couldn't get were already on legal scalping websites before the season sold out. WTF?????? Guys who want to buy tickets and go to a game have to buy from people with an inside track... who buy up all the seats and scalp 'em.
I give up. I've often thought about just buying season tickets and selling half on ebay myself.
Sorry to hear that man.
I know it doesn't feel like it, but in a way you're lucky. You actually have the opportunity to purchase season tickets and/or regular season tickets. I grew up in NY and the Jets & Giants season tickets have been sold out forever. Regular season tickets NEVER go on sale for the Jets or Giants because season tickets are sold out and the waiting lists are a mile long. Same thing in GB and a few other cities.
I think a lot depends on which team. I lived in southern FL for a bit and the Dolphins never sell out unless the oppenents fans buy the rest of the tickets. This past weekend I bought tickets to the season opener vs the Jets (Favres' 1st game!
) & tickets to see Minn play TB. TB had their season tickets sold out after the SB year, but now they're not.
I hope that you still get to go to a few games. If I were you I'd just go to a few games and try to get tickets there (as long as it's not a huge drive). Wait until the game is about to start and you'll see scalpers trying to give the tickets away...or lose them. You should be able to find tickets at face value. Not everyone scalping at the games is looking to make a profit. Good luck man!
