Please, Bill, ticket scalping is turning into your Baby Richard [Hits- ville].

Ticket scalping exists for one reason: chumps pay. How many of those Bruce fans who didn't get tickets went to a ticket broker the next day to get the tickets they were unable to get that Saturday morning? They feed the cycle, and continue to fuck themselves out of the tickets.

The Eagles had the right idea. They charged triple digits for tickets because they knew the fans would pay it; they figured they'd keep the dough instead of the scalpers.
