    Why, it's a way of making money? You don't have to buy it. Do you not know what CAPITALism is?

    "It is often illegal when the products are not naturally related, e.g., requiring a bookstore to stock up on an unpopular title before allowing them to purchase a bestseller."

    ^^ Yeah but they are not restricting anyone from buying a TFC ticket by first buying Marlies tickets. .

    Believe it or not, even capitalism needs rules.

    It's like the negative-billing rogers got caught up in.

    It does work, though, I was talking to someone yesterday who bought the package on a bit of a whim and now she only wants more TFC tickets.

    TFC and now maybe an English team, the Marlies don't draw squat, it's like MLSE has seen the future, and there's not much ice in it....

    That isn't 100% accurate.

    When I got my half-season ticket the best I could get was a single seat. Had I agreed to purchase 10 games (or whatever the # was) of Marlies tickets along with a half-season TFC package then I would have been able to get two seats side-by-side.

    In my mind that is certainly restricting me from purchasing TFC tickets.

    So what did people end up doing with their Marlies tickets? I pondered the offer, and turned it down.

    The Marlies games surprised me. I really enjoyed them, plus my seats were phenominal.

    It's pretty enjoyable hockey and I really like Ricoh, to be honest.

    How much are Marlies tickets?

    I figure they would be good gifts for stags or stag/does

    "Tied selling" is only illegal if you're a monopoly.
    It would be very hard to argue that the Marlies have a monopoly of lower-level hockey.

    Is there a difference between a monopoly and a protected territory? The Marlies and the Leafs are certainly the only professional hockey inthis market, everything else is amateur, isn't it?

    What I think is funny for a supposedly hockey market like Toronto, is that to sell Marlie tickets they tied them to the far more sought-after TFC tickets.

    There's a sea change coming to North American sports and MLSE sees it...

    The only thing close to the Marlies in their area is the Hamilton Bulldogs

    Gave em away for free. Just used the tickets to watch Calgary's (my NHL team) AHL affiliate......spent most of the game drinking and watching the "Marlies Dance Pack". They were actually really good seats!...3 rows or so from the ice.
    Hey, imo that is what it was going to take to get TFC tickets.....I should've signed up earlier if I wanted a better deal, or a crack at full seasons.....hopefully next year.

    jimiv and I went to one game. Used a few as freebies/gifts, and let the rest rot in the garbage can.

    Interesting. I used to catch the occasional Kitchener Rangers game when I lived in KW. I confess I'm not a massive hockey fan, though it was enjoyable enough ... though it was certainly nice to see them playing hockey, rather than waiting around during the commercial breaks. Perhaps I'll consider it next season - might not be much more expensive, given the $$$ charges I get any time I buy a single game from TicketMa$ter.
