I read in the Toronto Star this morning that the Toronto Blue Jays are receiving a secret commission on tickets sold via Stub Hub, “allowing the club to profit on the scalping of its own seats” – without telling fans they are doing it. In other words they profit from the original sale and then get a cut of the second sale at inflated prices.
This is just plain wrong. It’s bad faith. Bottom-feeding. Ugly. Greedy. They are biting the hand that feeds them. But they don’t care because people will keep coming, even when they continue to deliver a mediocre product.
I don’t matter to the Toronto Blue Jays. I was at just one game last season. It is not my pocketbook in which they are mining for gold. They won’t care that I’m done, but I’m done. Bye bye Blue Jays. As Old Weird Bob said, it’s all over now, baby blue.
