Exactly. They aren't. College students don't have the money to pay the ticket resale price. If anything it may be helping resale value.
Confusing student rush with open seats. Rush just keeps a steak going has no bearing on resale value. Open seats is what actually kills value.
In theory focring sellouts should help value, but it doesnt at all. I think you are wrong on what you just stated because there are open tickets until the day of the game and students typically cant buy them until that day (or if there are ton left like a lot of times they day before in a presale I have seen). So that hurts the value, quite a bit actually. But that is my point exactly anyways from above. There are plenty of people willing to pay say $150 but not $250, they dont sell so they are then sold for $30.
And it seems lately that season holders like me are being punished with crazy pricing to make up the difference and they are hoping for a long playoff run.
Just so you know I am not reselling my tickets, thats not why I care. I care because my prices keep going through the roof while they dont seem to be selling out most of the time. Its stupid to punish your most loyal paying customers.
To the original thought by Mac - this is where we differ and why people dont see the point. You assume that there are 200 single tickets left. But that simply isnt true, there are hundreds and sometimes thousands of perfectly good tickets in bulk left. That is why folks get frustrated. If were a few hundred singles nobody would even notice.
There not selling out most of the time? I disagree. They are selling most of their tickets, its a very small handful of tickets in the 100 level not selling and a few singles scattered throughout the arena. As for season ticket costs being too high, there hasn't been one time this entire season where I haven't lost money selling my tickets. Not once. There is no need to reduce the price if there are many people willing to pay more.
You lost money everytime? wow
