Bob Young's marketing boys
sure started a buzz in town
by their overall marketing program
but I never liked it that
well-paid employees of a certain local steel company
were making a buck
hawking their heavily discounted or free tickets to fans
who were walking up towards the ticket windows.
If a "steel company employee" gets 10 tickets for free or $2 a piece,
I have no problem with him/her
selling them for $10-$20 bucks a piece.
mikey says, No harm, no foul.
I believe this practice caused harm
because this practice stole revenue
from the Tiger Cats' ticket sales.
What do other people here think?
I hope nobody gives me that,
'Oh, they can afford it routine.'
This practice is morally wrong.
I wouldn't buy a Ticat ticket
from someone who got it that way.

to the decision to black out games.
