Rockies Tix - Scalping part II

After trying in vain for six hours over two days, I was basically shut out of Rockies WS tickets (I say basically because the gf's boss got some). Of everyone I knew who tried, no one got them. I checked SBN's Rox site, and two out of a 100 people got tickets.

The Rockies system of just opening up all of their non-season ticket holder tix to the internet was the stupidest thing I've ever seen. I would guess over 50% of the tickets went to Stubhub and have now been marked up 1,000%.

I don't see any problem with season ticketholders scalping their tickets. I do have a problem with ticket brokers gobbling up all the tickets. The citizens of Denver helped pay for Coors Field with their taxes, and they should get a preference for tickets. And while I'm sure Rockies fans are scattered throughout the country, most of them are in Colorado and southern Wyoming (lots of season ticket holders in Cheyenne). The Rockies really screwed the pooch on this one.
