i laugh my ass off every time i watch a game from one of the crappy southern markets, just seeing some of the deals, last tampa game it was 49 bucks for 4 tickets and a program.

$49 will get you parking for a game in toronto

Last week against the panthers, saturday night, flyers game, the lower bowl was 3/4 empty, yet ESPN attendance shows it as a sell out.
