Fins Finally Get Tough...

On season ticket holders who have the unmitigated gall to sell them sometimes.

Make of this what you will. I find it hard to believe this will end the problem of the home games turning into victory parties for opposing teams' fans, especially since those confiscated season tickets likely either won't be re-sold (would you buy one at this point?) or actually sold to other teams' fans. Either way it just actually creates more ticket buying chances for them.

EDIT: And now we find out what all this was really about.

It turns out that the fins weren't just using the NFL ticket exchange as a source of checking resales. Apparently they were monitoring other sites and may have been actually visually inspecting some seats at games to see who was in them.

In at least one case, they reportedly told the fan that them reselling their tickets hurt the Dolphins because it took away the home field advantage (hey! Its the fans fault the team is bad!)

It may seem like an odd practice. Maybe even stupid. But after thinking about it, I realized it has a deeper purpose: money

Last year, when they reconfigured the seats, many season ticket holders were displaced so that big money could buy them. The better seats went to corporations or others that agreed to buy them. As I hear it, it wasn't just about selling them the seats as it was about becoming invested in the team in some way.

Then the corporations can use the tickets how they want, including giving them to fans of the opposing team.

Yup. Jets saboteur. No other explanation, really.

Put a better product on the field, and you'll sell more tickets - to both corporations and regular joes. It's not rocket science.
