Until fans start voting with their wallets, nothing will change. I’ve been on the season ticket waiting list for 9 years and am awaiting the email that my 20 game package in the Reds is available for the upcoming season. After seeing what atrocities Bergevin and Molson have committed, I’ve decided to Not make the purchase. Unfortunately my decision won’t matter as there are literally thousands on the list who will scoop my spot.
I live 3 hours away and usually spend the night at the Marriott during game nights. Add in dinner, breakfast, parking, refreshments, souvenirs, etc, my total spend (including 2 tickets) is in the $1000-1,200 range per game. Multiply that by 20 and you can see it’s a pretty decent commitment. Molson’s decision to stand by his foxhole buddy also affects the local economy. If only more fans would boycott games, Maybe he would get the message (huge maybe).........,.
With that said, my bank account gonna look a lot healthier over the next several years. Just need to figure out a way to hide from my wife’s swimming pool aspirations. Haha
