    Eagles fans cry foul regarding ticket sales

    EAGLES FANS CRY FOUL REGARDING TICKET SALES
    Mike Florio

    We've received numerous e-mails from readers who think that something stinks regarding the manner in which the Philadelphia Eagles distributed single-game tickets on Wednesday, June 14.

    The tickets went on sale at 10:00 a.m. on June 14, and per several readers they were sold out within minutes.

    But plenty of tickets are available through RazorGator.com, a ticket brokerage that offers seats at a sizeable markup. Curiously, the Eagles and RazorGator.com have entered into some sort of a partnership, as evidenced by a web page that combines the names and trademarks of both entities.

    Although the Eagles tickets available via RazorGator.com supposedly come from "Season Ticket Holders," the mere existence of a business relationship between the Eagles and the ticket brokerage has prompted fans who were unable to get single-game tickets at face value to believe that the seats somehow were funneled to RazorGator -- thereby allowing the team to make even more money on the ultimate transaction.

    We're not suggesting that anything inappropriate has actually happened. But from a P.R. standpoint, the team's arrangement with RazorGator.com coupled with the near-immediate disappearance of the available single-game tickets looks bad, and we think the organization should take a long look at the potential impact of the perception that a back-door windfall is being engineered.

    Again, we're not saying it's happening. But we can understand why reasonable minds would conclude otherwise, based on the available facts.

    I'm glad I'm a season ticket holder. It's damn near impossible to get decent seats for a Vikings game when they are made available to the general public.

    More & more people, who have no intention of attending a game or are even a fan of the team, are buying them just to make a profit selling/scalping them on eBay.

    I am sure it will after they see how bad they have become with a recovering RB and QB. Not to mention they have no WR.

    Say WHAT???

    They are complaining because their team is in cahoots with a ticket broker instead of making the seats available for the average Joe to buy.

    That's not being spoiled - that's expecting your team to reward their followers, not to be in the pocket of some scummy company which will turn a huge profit.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I would be pissed if the Vikings did something like that too
