  1. i am so bummed. yeah, the blazers began scalping piece of junk upper level tickets to premium games, raising the prices from 9 to 52 dollars each last year. they didnt however raise group prices. well they have this year. im close to the edge of jumping off the bandwagon. it really wouldnt take much. yes i still have my season tix which they seem to raise 10-29 percent a year. i know from other peoples stories that this is the way it goes. people become fans, fall in love with the team and eventually get priced out at some point and end up walking away from thier tickets. in another few years when oden is a bust, pryz is gone, camby and miller are retired, batum never quite panned out, brandons begins having knee problems and la will still be good but not great then after some back to back failures to sell out the arena, tickets will become reasonable again. for the last 4-5 years i have bought a ton of tix. yeah ive scalped some, i can say ive lost more money than ive ever made. any money ive ever made i put back into buying more tickets. ive taken my family, my friends and probably given away 500-1000 tickets to underprivledged people. this new policy is crap. For all of you hoping to go see miami or the lakers or Phoenix on opening day or boston or any other good game. forget it. spend your money on comcast instead. Its a much better value! for those of you wanting to take your kids to a game you have no hope! i dont care how much you make, how many people can really afford 250+ just to sit in the very top piece of crap seat behind the basketwhere not only can you not see the players faces, you have difficulty reading their number also. enjoy your 9 dollar beers and your 15 dollar parking, your extended wait in traffic to go home. its time to start hating. mabey the next time i see the punk with the kobe jersey becoming obnoxious ill just buy him a beer.
