For Immediate Release

NEW YORK KNICKS AND NEW YORK RANGERS RELEASE 2012-13 SEASON TICKET INFORMATION

Second Phase of Three-Year Madison Square Garden Transformation to Debut in Fall 2012 

New York, NY, March 5, 2012 – The New York Knickerbockers and New York Rangers today released season ticket information for the 2012-13 seasons when Madison Square Garden will debut the second phase of the building’s historic, three-year top-to-bottom Transformation. The first phase of the Transformation debuted in Fall 2011 and included a completely redone lower bowl and select new areas in the upper levels of the Arena. The second phase will focus on adding new amenities and a completely new seating area with significantly improved sightlines to the upper bowl of the Arena.

For the 2012-13 season, Knicks season ticket prices will increase an average of 4.9%, and Rangers will increase an average of 9.5%. Price increases are primarily focused on upper bowl seats, reflecting the new amenities and improved sightlines in the upper bowl. Knicks and Rangers season ticket holders will be contacted directly by their dedicated experience manager with specific information on their account in the coming weeks.

When fans return to The Garden for the 2012-13 seasons, the seating configuration in the upper bowl of the Arena will be completely transformed. The upper bowl will offer larger, more comfortable seating and significantly improved sightlines as the incline for the upper bowl will increase 17 degrees, moving fans seven to 10 feet, or nearly three rows, closer to the action. Season ticket holders will be relocated to new seats accordingly.

A completely new offering for fans next season will be the new Gallery Seats, providing a premium experience in the upper bowl. The new Gallery Seats will be the front two rows of the upper bowl and feature 25% more legroom, and superior sightlines. The first row will also have a personal television for each seat and a drink rail to rest food and beverages. Current season ticket holders will have the first opportunity to purchase the new Gallery Seats.

For the 2012-13 seasons the new expanded Garden Concourse (8th Floor) will have city views in select areas, additional restrooms and retail locations, and new first-class food and beverage options, including MSG Signature Collection’s exclusive food items from leading chefs Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Andrew Carmellini, renowned restaurateur Drew Nieporent and Aquagrill’s chef and owner Jeremy Marshall. Final work will also be completed on the Madison Concourse (6th Floor). In addition, Knicks and Rangers fans will experience the return of the Blue Seats, which was a frequent request from fans during the planning of the Transformation. The Blue Seats will be located in a section on the west side of the building and be authentic to the color of the original Blue Seats.

“With the first phase of the Transformation complete, fans are already starting to discover a state-of-the-art venue that’s as memorable as the moments that happen at The World’s Most Famous Arena,” said Scott O’Neil, president, MSG Sports. “From improved sightlines to expanded concourses with new food and beverage offerings to new social gathering areas, the second phase of the Transformation will offer even more exciting amenities for fans. Our top priority continues to be creating a world-class experience for every person that visits The Garden, and we have a dedicated staff that will ensure that the experience before, during and after fans attend an event is seamless and exceeds their expectations.”

The second phase of the Transformation will also include 58 new Madison Suites that will open throughout the 2012-13 seasons and the Madison Club, both located on the 7th floor approximately 23 rows up for hockey and 30 rows for basketball. The Madison Club will be a new all-inclusive, exclusive membership-only club that will include tickets to Knicks, Rangers, college basketball, boxing, tennis and all other sports events held at The Garden.

Additional Knicks and Rangers season ticket options and benefits for next season include:

–          Season tickets will be offered at 23 different price points for Rangers and 22 different price points for Knicks;

–          Exclusive season ticket holder benefits, including access to special events with current players and alumni, such as meet and greets, storyteller forums, skating with the Rangers and shooting hoops with the Knicks; unique gifts and experiences based on tenure; opportunity to personalize select benefits according to interests; savings vs. individual game tickets; first consideration to buy playoff tickets and for seat relocation and upgrades; online ticketing services; and a dedicated experience manager to provide assistance for all account needs;

–          A number of flexible payment plan options are available for all subscribers.

There are several special incentives for Knicks and Rangers fans to renew their 2012-13 season tickets early or online. The renewal deadline for Rangers is May 11 and for Knicks is May 18. Season ticket holders that renew by the early bird deadlines, March 26 for Rangers and April 2 for Knicks, will receive a voucher for a 10% discount on Delta Air Lines tickets. Those that secure their 2012 playoff tickets and renew their 2012-13 season tickets by the early bird deadline will receive a 10% rebate on their playoff tickets. Fans that pay for season tickets using their Chase credit card will receive a premium Knicks or Rangers gift.

Fans are encouraged to renew their season tickets online by using their personalized website which outlines their exclusive subscriber benefits and features a 3D Virtual Venue tool showcasing their new seats. Fans that pay online will be entered to win a number of great prizes, including complimentary roundtrip tickets on Delta Air Lines and getaways courtesy of Delta Vacations.

The first phase of the Transformation debuted in Fall 2011 and included a completely transformed lower bowl of the Arena, including new larger, more comfortable seating, expanded Madison Concourse (6th Floor) with city views, additional restrooms and retail locations and a variety of new food offerings, including MSG Signature Collection. New open areas on the east and west side of the 8th floor and the West Balcony (10th floor), provided fans with direct views into the Arena bowl, as well as new seating, walkways and concession stands. The new Event Level Suites, Delta Sky360 Club and 1879 Club Presented by J.P. Morgan also debuted during the 2011-12 seasons.

Work on the Transformation will continue to be a year-round project, sequenced to maximize construction efforts during the remaining offseason shutdowns in 2012 and 2013. The building will be transformed into a state-of-the-art facility that lives up to its iconic stature, while preserving The Garden’s great history and distinctive architecture.

  1. What I don’t get is why, after my tickets in the lower bowl went up 26% to cover that share of the renovations, my tickets are going up another 10% (higher than the 9.5% stated average) if the reason is to cover the new amenities in the Upper Bowl? I’m not getting any use out of those amenities if I don’t sit there!

    I’ll bet the Prime Rib sandwich will be AT LEAST $21.99 next season.

  2. Tiki XLII XLVI on

    Thanks Doodie! Being a true fan of the Rangers that u are, youll be contributing even more money to the cause!!!

  3. Doodie – maybe they just want you to move out of the “danger zone” underneath that cat-walk idea they have.

  4. Doodie Machetto on

    I pay $56 a game right now and I’m being asked for $79 a game next season to sit basically in the same place, except this time in the second row. Forty percent increase for worse seats.

    By the way, the front row seats that I currently occupy will cost $125! That’s more than a 100% increase! How the hell is MSG able to say the average increase is only 9.5%!?

  5. Tiki XLII XLVI on

    Because 9.5% is the average increase of all the seats that have increased prices. You currently only pay byfugliening $56 a game for good seats! WTB!!

  6. ThisYearsModel on

    All this, and a potential lockout to get salary concessions from the players union and a lower salary cap beginning next season. Gotta love Mr. Dolan and the Garden. Nothing like being there, but if I still lived back there and had tickets, I would be purchasing the biggest HDTV and watching the games at home. I cannot see how families can afford this luxury anymore.

  7. Doodie Machetto on

    Tiki, it can’t be. There’s no way that some sections are increased so little so as to balance out the colossal increases in the 300s and 400s. The cheapest seats in the house will now be $50.

  8. “…new first-class food and beverage options, including MSG Signature Collection’s exclusive food items from leading chefs Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Andrew Carmellini, renowned restaurateur Drew Nieporent and Aquagrill’s chef and owner Jeremy Marshall.”

    It’s the same greasy crap they’ve always served, except 40% more expensive. Gimme a break…

  9. Doodie Machetto on

    NYR Fan, no, I’ll vouch for the new vendors. The food is better. It’s just a much worse value. More expensive for less food.

    And they changed all of their own vendors to be beyond terrible. Hot Dogs are just gross. “National Deli?” And the chicken fingers: my god! what happened to them!? They were good to start the season. Now I can get better chicken fingers from an elementary school cafeteria.

    At least the waffle fries are still good…for now…

  10. Ouch. I am really sorry guys. My couch is still the same price, FREE. It comes with boxed wine also.

  11. Doodie, agree about the chicken fingers. Earlier they were pretty good, even if overpriced. Now I think they might actually be a chicken’s fingers.

    but the greasy waffle fries are good.

  12. “Hot Dogs are just gross.”

    I nearly gag when I get a whif of that smell…..ugh….

  13. Doodie Machetto on

    My tickets are the same price as yours now except I am in a much worse section. My ticket rep better change my section to somewhere cheaper or I will be left outside of MSG.

  14. That’s fine, Doodie. I saw Julia Styles outside MSG last time I was there. So you can hang with her.

  15. Good evening all! Thanks for the stick salute photo Carp! I really can’t stand watching games on the No Brain Channel.

    Manny, my couch is free too, but the Dolanvision bill still comes once a month.

  16. … because there was something wrong with the Garden the way it was?

    … oh, right, they couldn’t make nearly as much money as they do now.

    … but it’s all for the fans, right? Just like Giants/Jets fans were gifted that new unnecessary stadium for which they were then billed.

  17. Onecupin72yearsandcounting on

    Excellent sight lines from my TV,, great snacks, bevearges , never a line at the bathrooms, plenty of parking too,

  18. Doodie Machetto on

    Carp, can you get a more endeavoring investigative reporter to find out how the hell MSG can say the average ticket price increase was 9.5%? I’m hearing the 400s went up about 36%.

    The only way I can figure it is if they said, “well, we’ve deleted half of the seats in the 400s, so from 36 to 0 counts as a minus!”

  19. Onecupin72yearsandcounting on

    Biggest mistake for the Jets was going halvsies at the New GIANT I mean metlife stadium

  20. I have yet to go to a game this season because of the high prices and as it looks now I probably wont be going to a game next season either for the same reason.

  21. Rangers West on

    You all know that if you rub your body in olive oil and show up at MSG wearing nothing but a thong (2-3 sizes too small), combat boots and an old school (Circa 1918) aviator hat that you get into all Knicks, Rangers and AKC events for free and at Rangers games you get one free hot dog and a bottomless beer mug. Almost nobody knows about this. it’s a great deal.

  22. Doodie Machetto on

    Carp, you hit it right on the head. There were definitely problems with the Garden as a hockey rink, but as a venue it was still fine. The seating arrangements were fine, the food was fine, all of that was fine. But as a sports arena, it was (and still is) definitely dark and felt very closed. If they wanted to build a new arena that was comparable to the Prudential Center’s brightness and open feeling, I would get it. But this renovation doesn’t address those problems. It just changes the byfuglien seat arrangements so they can charge more/have more luxury suites, and more expensive food. It’s absurd.

  23. onecup, exactly….and nobody ever forgets to flush or pees on the seat. at least in my house….can’t speak for yours :)

  24. Doodie Machetto on

    mama, if I’m ever at your house, I will both pee on the seat and forget to flush, to give you that authentic “at the game” feel. I’ll also bring off-brand hot dogs (but no mustard) and charge you $9.50 for a beer.

  25. Doodie Machetto on

    You know what would save Dolan some time? At the entrance, he should just have John Scott pick people up, turn them upside down, and shake all of the money out of their pockets.

  26. We should also pay a set fee to have that service provided by Scott Johnston. That’s an honor.

  27. what a shock a really really rich guy figures a way out to bilk more money out of the middle class and just rich.

    if people cancelled season tickets DOlan and other owner parasites would adjust the prices….

    these guys pray to the greenbacks that is their whole life and reason for being..

    money money money………

  28. Pidto and Duguay don’t work for free, Doodie. An entirely reasonable increase if you look at it that way.

  29. I actually feel sick for the current season ticketholders. I gave up my seat about 10 years ago because the cost was getting out of control then. The first year I had my seat was in the early 80’s and it was $8 per ticket for section 410 – that was $320 for the whole season! This makes me not even feel bad not going anymore.

  30. yeah this officially ends my relationship with Madison Square Garden

    sorry, not paying $80 a game

  31. Ria(the silent bonehead) on

    And if you don’t pay the higher ticket prices Dolan will just increase cable rates to make up the difference . Its a no win situation the “little people” aka the real fans lose as always

  32. Sioux-per-man on

    I will say this about visiting Madison Square Garden the last 2 years. My first year I was not impressed, we sat behind Marty for the last game of the year. Great Game, Great Fans, A win over the Devils. But I was expecting so much more from the Most Famous Arena in the World. The building was built in the 60’s and needed a upgrade.

    Now, this year was a “Once in a Lifetime Experience”. Complete different experience attending the Philly and Devils games sitting in the Delta 360 club. The seats were great, the food was great, a chance to meet and great some really nice players as they ran through the club to get to the locker room.

    Sorry for the price increase on your tickets, but your building needed an upgrade. When all 3 phases are done it could be one of the nicest arena’s in the world, and live up to its name. (If ever you are in ND, you will have to check out the Ralph Englestad Arena, it is truly one of the nicest Hockey Arena’s you will ever step foot in. The floors are marble, the seats are leather, 2 full view bars one on each end, and tons of hockey history).

  33. duck the bill on

    BYFUGLIEN THE KNICKS!! BYFUGLIEN THE NBA!!! Carcillo, Cooke and Lucic combined have better character than any Knick fan! I am praying for locusts to devour the NBA.

  34. Sioux-per-man on

    I thought the Knicks tickets went up even more last year?

    $80 a game, for the NHL, to see the #1 team in the league. Sounds like a Bargain, $6,400 a year for 2 seats. It is New York. Everything is always a little more there.

  35. On one hand, you can’t fault them for raising prices if people are still willing to pay it, and they still sell out.

    However, it would be nice if they did more special discount deals for people who can’t afford to take out a second mortgage to pay for hockey tickets. The Yankees at least have their $5 upper deck ticket specials, packages with 4 tickets and hot dogs for like $20 per person, stuff like that. Sure, there are FAR more seats to fill at the Stadium compared to MSG, but at least they do a token effort to provide deals.

  36. god i cant wait to see what my invoice is for my seats next year. i am in section 330 right now and pay $59 per seat. someone mentioned to me $73 per seat. i want to see what my seats look like if i have to pay 73 per seat.

  37. The Rangers Puck Shuffle: how to fleece fans into coughing up more dough….

    MSG has sunk to a new low. The World’s Most Famous (terrible ice, overpriced food, dirty, disgusting) Arena.

    LW, can you take me and Doodie to a game next year in your Bentley? We’ve been priced out of MSG. At least, we can watch the pre-game on the satellite TV…

  38. I don’t post here much but read it every day. our seats (currently Section 305) are going up 24%! When I saw the total nut owed for next year, I emailed our rep and asked him if there were preseason games this year (might help justify the large increase for 3 more games) but no dice. $59 -> $73, no preseason. The explanation I got from my rep:

    “Some important things to keep in mind are that this is a brand new configuration with new sections, rows and seats, you’re moved closer to the ice and there will be brand new amenities in the upper level concourse.” ok…

    I split with 3 other guys and only go to about 8 games/yr but honestly, that is insane. $5, ok but $14, PER TICKET? That said, if the team was playing poorly, they’d get all kinds of Carcillo from subscribers for raising the price a lot. Rags are #1 in the entire league. If there ever was a time for a big raise, this is the year and they’re doing it.

  39. If they really were building a new arena, I would not complain…this “Transformation” is a hack job designed to raise revenue for MSG LP stockholders…screw the fans and loyal ticket holders….we have money to make $$$

  40. leetchhalloffame on

    Pretty soon the greedy Dolans will make watching Rangers & Knick games on the MSG Network pay-per-view.

  41. I thinking about starting a newspaper company so I can sit in the “transformed” pressbox, right next to Carp. Might be cheaper than buying season tix in the 300s…

  42. Doodie, I’m defintely not defending the “transformation” but eventually there will be a lot of city views from the concourses and some of the seats, I think. They’re going to open up a lot of the back walls to windows. FWIW.

    As for raising the prices because they can get that kind of money from the fans, well, that’s OK to a point. But did you read the story in the Post, either Sunday or Monday, about Citi Field and how much the ticket/concession/parking revenue are down, and expected to be down in the future?

    The Rangers will be OK for a while in that regard, because there are enough people with money. But if they ever go through a couple of bad years, or if they have a 1997-2005 drought again, they will finally start to see unsold seats and then they’ll be hurting. And eventually they will have some bad years. There’s no way to avoid it.

  43. If the increases were focused on the upper levels, they could use a weighted average to say prices only went up 9.5%. Wouldn’t be lying, but wouldn’t exactly be honest either.

  44. “And eventually they will have some bad years. There’s no way to avoid it.”

    I bet that’s exactly how Howson got Sather interested in dealing for Nash. Rangers next bad year will be when Kreider is in his 40s.

  45. blacks, i understand your frustration but can we as Rangers fans at least agree not to call our team as “Rags”….leave it to clueless Philly, Boston, and closet Rangers (Devils) fans.

  46. First, GREAT, raise knick prices for a sub 500 team. I don’t follow that sport anyway.notice how none of the “beautiful” people are courtside when they suck? Not like the true blue who sat through YEARS of lousey teams and trades to finally have something to cheer for this year. My ticket prices went up 5% last year to this year and they moved me to seats “take them or leave them”. Now, next year the increase is 14%.I don’t care what anyone says, the food sucks and is way over priced, even for stadium standards. The only nice thing they did is that I don’t have to walk half a mile to take a piss.

  47. I have several problems with that, actually. Don’t try me, especially when I have all four of your lunch points in my hands.

  48. let’s not forget that the Rangers only started becoming a “hotter” ticket in the last couple of months now that they’ve solidified their position at the best team in the conference. earlier in the year, there were plenty of instances were you couldn’t give away Rangers tickets.

    anybody who doubts the fickle nature of fans after a hefty price increase need only look at what goes on with Yankee tickets now

  49. LOL. Bob Errey just said that the goaltenders “have their own award” and so Henrik shouldn’t be up for the Hart. Numbskull.

  50. Onecupin72yearsandcounting on

    If the Rangers win the cup Dolan will be cruzin for a while , the Knicks? I don’t see them winning anytime soon..
    The ranger franchise is historically a losing team kind of like the the Bklyn Bums and the Metsies of the Stengal era, kind of “wait til next year ”

    If the rangers swoon soon, like carps says ,1997 -2005 , Dolan will be choking..
    wait until the cap , FA signings and resignings all come together.

  51. As dumb as Errey is, the guy on his team is the Hart Trophy winner as of this moment

  52. I had seasons for 20 yrs in the greens and honestly thought it was a bargain and I rarely think that way. Hurt when the team stunk though. Nobody wants to pay more but I go to the Caps a lot and the tix downstairs are thru the roof, same in NJ and Pitt. Sporting events left the middle class a long time ago, it’s a shame. Also saw U2 in 1987 for 35 bucks now in a football stadium you get to pay 250 ouch

  53. I agree, Lloyd. I will say that if TB make it and Stamkos continues his torrid pace, or even half of it, he deserves some serious consideration.

  54. You refuse to pay $100+ (snacks included) for a hockey game?! And I thought you guys were all true Rangers fans! :P

    I only went to one game this season…for FREE! Thanks ilb!

    F U DOLAN!

  55. Ria(the silent bonehead) on

    blacks 4 no diehard true Rangers fan would ever call them “the Rags” even during the lean years just saying

  56. Latona:

    I’m sure he’ll get some votes, but given the hard-on everyone has for Crosby, his absence caused all of the Crosby-lovers to think Pittsburgh was dead and buried. They’ve not got 81 points and are the second-best team in the conference. The perception is that Malkin is about 99.9999% of why that’s happened.

  57. speaking of the Hart Trophy, I really miss Erik Christensen. when you see the tear he’s been on since getting dealt to Minnesota, you can’t help by wonder whether someone had to put a gun to Sather’s head to get that deal done.

    Erik the Great has played 13 games since getting dealt to Minnesota. Here are his totals:

    0 Goals 0 Assists 0 Points -11

    and he’s been a healthy scratch 2 of the last three games.

    here’s a little news clipping on our former shootout master:

    Erik Christensen was scratched for a second consecutive game Friday in Detroit despite the Wild losing in a shootout Thursday in Montreal. He is tied for sixth in the NHL with 26 career shootout goals. “When you get to the shootout, you’re sitting there looking and saying, ‘Man, I wish we had Christensen in the lineup right now,'” coach Mike Yeo said. But Yeo won’t dress Christensen simply because he’s good in the shootout. He has no points and is minus-11 in 12 games. “I’m not trying to pick on Crusher here, but … there’s lots of guys that haven’t been scoring goals,” Yeo said. “Stephane Veilleux doesn’t have a whole lot of points right now, but he’s not a liability at all when he’s on the ice and he brings us energy and emotion. “It’s OK if you don’t score, but just be effective in the game and make sure you don’t cost us anything.”

  58. Tiki XLII XLVI on

    NYR, then lets hope the ticket prices skyrocket baby!!! We want the Cup!!

    There’s nothing about the internet that I truly enjoy more than reading New York fans whine about ticket prices being raised. You see it every year from every fanbase. I love it! LMAO!

  59. Wicky©Proud owner of the world's most persistent cold on

    re the last thread
    carp
    I guess my point to the whole thing is if we do not trade for scott, then I am not even suggesting anything about him obviously (and I have been more than happy with the toughness of this team the whole season and still am whether scott is in the line up or not). We did however trade for him (again, obviously), so why not put him out there and get something out of him. If not it is a wasted trade/asset. If you got him use him I guess is the bottom line to me. Like I said on the cheap I resign him as well, but certainly not end of the franchise if we don’t

    LW
    what did I call who?? And leave my damn visor (or lack there of)out of this!! :)

  60. Wicky©Proud owner of the world's most persistent cold on

    didn’t errey used to play for the rangers?

    anyone find a vid to the near dust up after the game yesterday that carp was talking about?

  61. WOW my tix just went from $4900 to $6100…and I went from 303 to 227…now I have to figure out if they re-named sections or if the moved me down to shake me for more cash and hoped I wouldn’t notice….Does anyone know if the sections that are now 301 and 302 are going to still be “300” sections next year?? Why did I get moved to the 200’s???

    To top it off they did a half baked job of putting us together with the people we requested to sit together with.

    My Rep is gonna hear it on Sunday…I might cause a scene.

  62. Wicky©Proud owner of the world's most persistent cold on

    And btw, congrats and good luck to everyone that made the playoffs in the fantasy hockey league and thanks to all who participated and I hope you will play next year as well.

  63. Varda:

    they renamed the sections. there’s no longer a 300 level. 200s are as high as they go now.

  64. JimboWoodside on

    Pitt leading Yotes 2-0, mid-second – they’re hanging tough..looks like they’re not gonna fall back..

  65. blacks4

    how do you compare your current seats now to what they assigned you in the virtual view

  66. Manny Astronomo on

    That Marty Turco signing is obviously in reaction to the loss! Turco and Rolston! Bring on the old-timers.

  67. Decent, Jimbo.. trying to prepare my soccer team for the playoffs this weekend.. although that’s proving difficult with the lack of gym time and whatnot. Anything going on with you?

  68. Manny Astronomo on

    Latona – you gots to make gym time. You need to pump iron daily. I might suggest finding an abandoned rooftop and set up some old school irons on top of it.

  69. Forget about training, Manny. They need to learn how to trap the ball properly! This is indoor soccer. Played almost hockey-style, changes on the fly, four plus a keeper. Off the walls, bleachers, everything. Pretty extreme. My team championshipped last season, but we lost our entire starting line-up and got promoted a division on top of that. We’re hanging in there though.

  70. Thomas isn’t a workhorse and given that he hasn’t started more than 55 games since 06-07, I’m sure they’re desperately hoping Turco can spell him.

  71. Manny Astronomo on

    That’s pretty cool, Latona. Sorry for making the jokes. Good luck. If you need somebody to hold your whistle or clipboard please let me know. I can rock a suit and athletic shoes really well.

  72. Question I have, if the Rangers (and I guess Knicks, but highly unlikely) make a deep playoff run, how will they possibly get the upper bowl finish by the start of their first home game next season? Last year they had 1/2 of April, all of May through September and 3/4ths of October to finish the lower bowl. This offseason they might have 1/2 of June, July-September, and 3/4ths of October, so they could be losing 2 months of construction time.

  73. Latona, what’s your teams name? I’m really looking forward to the start of kickball season. Lets go Thunderballs!

  74. iDoodie machetto on

    Just got home, my tickets are actually $59, so it’s ONLY (sarcasm) a 34% increase.

  75. Jeff, i guess if the rangers play into june they’ll be able to afford to hire a lot more carpenters, electricians and tilers.

  76. Carp, how do I get a job as the person that scrapes blood off the ice? I think i’d be good at that.

    Lets go Lunch Wardens!!! Wooooo!!!

  77. It was a joke, Sal. We’re the Falcons. So intimidating!

    Players who turn into the wall to draw a boarding call should get an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

  78. You’d be awesome, Sally! Especially if they re-sign Scott. They may have to hire more blood-scrapers.

  79. Carp, would you put in a good word for me??? I’ll send you a resume & cover letter tomorrow. That is my dream job! No joke, I actually brought that up during my last interview – and they still hired me!

  80. Can you skate, or would you go out there with those studded-rubber straps on the bottom of your sneakers?

  81. option 1. Couch/dvr
    option 2. Madison Square Rock Garden, Newark.
    option 3. leaching off friends who got MSG tix via corporate or other…
    option 4. scouting craigslist for bankers tix, selling low when they have to work late or have to take the new mistress out again before she gets too pouty.

    I would never pay those prices, in fact I said that the last time. Have not gone since 2009-10.

    But as many have said…it is NY, it is always expensive, and people are paying.

  82. You guys are crying over the increase from $65 to $79? I am in the ‘lower corner’ and ticket prices went from $108 last year to $165 this year. Is that about a 55% increase??

    Next year we go up to $170.

    I had aisle seats and was placed right in the middle of the row, either side is 12 (or so) seats. I used to be able to get up at will. Now lots of people have to get up to let me out.

    I have only been a season tix holder for 27 years. Nice way to be treated, isn’t it??????

    thank you!!

    well that’s it, i’m dumping my season tickets RIGHT FUGGIN NOW!!! No way are they getting another dime (a-dozen) out of me!!!!

  85. Carp – forgot to mention – as I only get to the Garden two or three times a season (a family of 5 for a Hockey game is EXPENSIVE – Note to DOLAN) – I have to say that the Prime Rib Sandwhich is EXCELLENT – loved it! Of course, that was after a hotdog, pretzel, beer, and some other ammenities –

    Good thing here in Smallbany we only have the TU Center – where you can get a “Toastburger” and throw it on the ice if they are in need of a new puck!

    It just aasens me up about the ticket price hike…we’ve had our season tickets since 1931 and this is ridiculous!!

    We paid $.38 damn cents a seat for those tickets in ’31 and they were gouging us then at that rate. Damn moon pies were a nickel at the concession stands, if you wanted a pepsi with peanuts in it, it was an additional $.03.

    Box of cracker jacks $.02…$.02 unreal!!!!

    It cost a dime to tie your horse up 7 blocks away, and don’t try to bring your family along in the old conestoga wagon, 2 damn bits to leave that in a lot 5 blocks away that you didn’t even know if the cover would still be on it when you got back.

    Dolan screwed us back then too!!
