You guys have an objection to this blatent advertising?

Would you use this service? Because if you fine folks would use something like this, I will leave it up.

Sorry if it seemed like advertising, but I'm just trying to let fans know about the Web site. We got the Web space for free and we don't charge anyone anything. This is simply a place where season ticket holders can communicate with each other. We don't even allow ticket scalpers on our message board. Ticket sales must be face value or less, strictly between fans.

if you look at the prices on the site there dd, there is an awful lot of scalping going on!

You may be right. I try to check as many messages as I can, and I have removed several of them where scalping is obvious. But I'm sure that a lot of scalping goes on behind the scenes, after people make contact. Not much I can do about that. But I have received many notes from fans who have been able to get good deals on great seats, so I know that our board works.

I tried to get the Dolphins organization to mention our site on their site, but they won't have anything to do with it. In spite of all of their preaching about scalpers, I think they are worried that we might steal some ticket sales away from them. After all, if it is easy for fans to buy existing tickets, they won't buy as many new ones at the box office, right? So instead they had their lawyer send me a very nasty letter, threatening me with a lawsuit which would collect my "profits". They even said it is illegal to use the team colors on my Web site! Ridiculous!

Anyway, please pass our URL on to others who may be looking for ways to buy or sell home game tickets. The best thing fans can do to stop scalpers is just refuse to pay more than face value!
