In Response to Re: Bruins raise ticket prices more than the amount reported in the Globe : You don't have to attend games to support the team. My Daughter and I went to the Garden to send the B's off to Vancouver before the start of the Finals. I purchase hats, t-shirts, the dvd, etc... I just choose not to pay exhorbanant tickets prices to anything. That includes movies, concerts, plays, and sporting events. There are alternatives for all. Tell me again why you or anyone else that gets a mini plan should get as good a discount as someone who pays for a full season? You are lucky to be getting a discount at all. You may have a right to complain about players salaries, but it is still whining. I don't think any of these athletes, actors, or musicians deserve the amount of money that they are receiving. However I don't begrudge them for it, nor do I begrudge the owners for getting theirs. It is simple, if you don't pay, someone else will. They may or may not be as big a fan as you or I, but it doesn't matter. I went to the winter classic and I went to 1 P-Bruins game last year and I am OK with that. Would I love to be able to go to all of these things, of course I would. My point is, it is not the Bruins fault that you or I can't afford to attend like we might want to. I am a fan of Lamborgini's as well, but I don't have one of them either. As far as your $400, I am sure you can get $400 worth of single game tickets, just not what you were hoping for. AS far as corporations giving away tickets, to me that means some real fans that maybe can't afford to go to a game, have a chance to attend. I have received tickets from my place of business for Red Sox games, I am a fan that normally would not attend otherwise. I just choose to understand that it is business and don't choose to itch & complain that I am being cheated.

I never said anything about getting a discount..The increase in ticket prices is what I was talking about.. Increasing the lowest price tickets by 50% is insane..
Mini plan holders don't get a discount, I never made a point that they should, just that the increase in price in a single season (espeically in this economy is ridiculous)..
And as far as supporting the team, I was speaking in financial terms, those who buy tickets should have a voice, absolutely.. This is where your first post I felt was off saying you shouldnt complain about ticket prices.. If i buy a ticket package repeatedly, and had to put a deposit down they then jack the price 50% i absolutely have a right to complain, You, who doesnt go to the games would have no right..
