Not Sure What I Think About This


A ticket broker has a bunch of tickets stolen and now the Rangers have deactivated the bar codes on them.

I think a lot of innocent people are about to be screwed. I understand that if I buy a watch out of the trunk of a car that I should suspect it is stolen. But these tickets are likely to end up on Stubhub, eBay, and Craigslist where legitimate sales of tickets are resold every day. I wouldn't think for a second they are stolen.

So, in the end, isn't the thief going to get his money while innocent purchasers become more victims? And if the Rangers don't re-issue the tickets to the ticket broker (they wouldn't, would they?), they'll end up with empty seats instead of concession buying fans.

Were they all for the same game? Why don't the publicize the date for the "stolen ticket game" so people can feel confident buying tickets for other dates?

Or perhaps it's a ploy to get the general public to only buy tickets through the Rangers ticket office instead of from 3rd party ticket sellers...

Be careful on Craiglist, I found my girlfriend there, but her rates keep going up.

The tickets can be reissued and sold for the 4K seats with new bar codes. When someone presents a ticket with a deactivated bar code, I'm sure they will be asked a lot of questions by the authorities on how they obtained the ticket.

The police will probably find snow monkey prints on the voided tickets.

You get what you pay for. And if you buy a ticket illegally, you usually know it. So, what goes around comes around.
