When we make it to the Grey Cup I think I’ll post on the blew team’s site an offer to purchase tickets and see what response I get. Perhaps I might even get them below cost?
Back in '96 I had tickets to the game at IWS. Since it was the blew team in the east I tried selling them at cost. I went to the Sheraton lobby with a sign (this was before the WWW) offering to sell to anyone who needed extras. I stood there for maybe 20 minutes without success when some young punk in a suit tells me to “take it outside” like I was a scalper or something. YEESSHH! So I wandered down to the Connaught and did the same thing in their lobby for an hour or two. Nobody accosted me. I went home when I got tired without making a sale. I was there when the "Moes came into the hotel. It was great seeing Ronny Lancaster, et al.
The seats were high up in Section 7 (with backs to the benches) on about the 50 yard line. They were very good seats. Since I was unable to sell them I took my mother and we watched as Flutie and co. slightly outplayed McManus and co. It was a good game, just not the one I was hoping for with a Dunigan led Tabbie team being successful.
Waited last minute last year and paid 200$ each - half price of ticket value - for 9th row roughly the 45 yard line in WPG, so that does seem steeper this year.
Our endzones seats for VCR the year before were only 125$ Again, BMO is looking more costly but at the end of the day if you want to be part of the fun, you do what ya gotta do.
