Re: Cubs cancelled my season tickets - anyone else?

I wish the Blackhawks did this. I have been on their waiting list for 7 years and they have a 99.6% renewal rate. In my section I have partial season tickets, scalpers bought up rows of tickets just before the 2009 winter classic, none of those people ever set foot in the United Center.

Re: Cubs cancelled my season tickets - anyone else?

Could it be that tickets were sold twice for some games? Like you sold the Electronic copies on Stubhub and the paper tickets someone else tried to use? The Bears booted my friend for this, it wasn't even his fault(although he was stupid) He sold tickets via Ebay and sent the electronic copy to the ...

And inflation, if minimum wage rose to the same rate we would already have $14 minimum wage.

Why wouldn't it be home game one?


And, yeah, I imagine they'll be insanely gaudy.



I thought I read someone post on this board that the rings aren't being handed out until game 2?

Re: STH Thread

Are there legal regulations season ticket holders have to abide by when selling their tickets online? Like if they sell online are they only legally allowed to do so through StubHub? No, but I don't think there are any other good options. Someone should make one. P.S. I'm debating looking into maki...

Re: STH Thread

I'm callin big ol [expletive] on regular season tickets re-selling for 96% above face value this year. I would think they can next year, even with the 20% increase. The Hawks tickets kept increasing since 2010 around 20%, to the point where profits by STH's now in 2016 barely make a profit. In 2010...

Is there an effective way to harass the MLB Shop people about something not arriving? The last thing to ship (a 12M size t-shirt for my son, who thankfully can't fit in it yet anyway) is stuck in FedEx hell somewhere. The tracking info I got is apparently wrong because it's not where the tracker sa...

Re: Cubs World Series Film Airs Tonight - 12/2 at 6 CT - FS1

I have watched this 3 times this weekend. Really liked it and the hour documentary afterward. Well done. Now I just have to wait for the 8 Disc WS full game + NLCS game 6 to arrive. I only wish they got rid of the losing WS games, and added NLDS game 4, and maybe NLCS game 1.

Re: Technology Chit-Chat

Anyone sign up for Directv Now? My dad did, it looks pretty good. Locked in at $35 a month, plus HBO add on for $5. I might prepay for 3 months to get a free Apple TV 4.

As others have said in this thread, no DVR until sometime next year is a big drawback though for now.

Yeah lets bring Hillary up for saying something not even close to what Trump said, meanwhile this is probably about the 100th stupid thing he has said since he became President Elect due to the 18th Century relic known as the Electoral College.
