    Nice one, hopefully they actually mean that and will have the cops out there keeping scalpers away.

    Doubt that a guy asked us while we were in line at gate 1 and a cop was right there not ten feet away
    The only thing scalpers are good for is so you don't have to eat a set of tickets if you have four and two jerks cancel on you last second and you can't find someone to replace them but still nedtomake sure you get cost

    I think we should notify the CNE security by calling (416) 263-3333 when we see these scalping scumbags and see if the security will deal with the problem. That's what the Manager of Security has advised us to do.

    The cops have probably been directed to watch out for "hooligans", and bullshit like that.

    Funnily enough, there was a scalper wandering through the tailgate last week trying to buy or sell. Idiots.

    There seems to be a heck of a lot of speculators out there that have purchased tickets thinking demand would be up this year.....over 1000 tickets available for Atlanta on stubhub after home opener tickets were available for $5

    I think there is an overstated interest in the club, especially for cold, rainy, early season games. I couldn't make it to the season opener and practically could not give my tickets away. Outside of the supporters sections, there is still a very low appetite for tickets.

    If this was the case, then why does TFC allow STH to set their own prices on ticketsnow? Clearly this Ticket Speculation Act is not law which is why it is not enforced by anyone, or any organization.

    The law was changed in the intervening 9-odd years () since that post was made to allow shit like TicketsNow.

    Anyway, let's lock this one down. If you want to start a new thread to discuss the current laws and the current state of corporate scalping sponsored by TFC, TicketMaster and the government, please feel free to go right ahead.
