Also, the Student Rush isn't some cheap ploy to hype the sell out streak. It's a marketing plan to sustain a season ticket base that they're building. Why do people still complain about this and not see this?
Student rush is both. of course it's a great marketing plan, every team does it. But pens use it to fill a ton of empty seats too. My section is like a student rush section over half the time. If you think it's just marketing just probably haven't taken in a lot of games this has happened.
Nobody is saying its a stock or the like but going to 20 - 40 games is tough for most people. Sometimes we just need to dump a few games. Not for profit but nothing wrong with no eating $200 in unused tickets
I think that is used for the sake of examples anyways and not complaints on not making money by scalping. If there are tickets online and some season tickets holders have a hard time dropping the 5 games they can't make plus you are are seeing thousands of students - it's going to be discussed. That's all.
