Local Pro Sports Franchises Finally Get It!

For the first time in approximately eight years, both the Minnesota Vikings and the Minnesota Wild have kept their season tickets prices the same as they were last year. It is nice to see that they have both began to understand how tough it is for the average fan to buy season tickets and that it has become even more difficult due the poor economy.

I applaud the Minnesota Vikings for keeping the prices of Vikings tickets the same as last year even though the team did show some improvement by making it to the NFL Playoffs!

I also applaud the Minnesota Wild for not increasing the prices of Wild tickets even though they continue to sell out every game while producing a competitive and quality product!

Maybe the days of greedy Minnesota professional sport franchise owners like Red McCombs are behind us and we can count on the current owners to understand that sporting events are not just a privilege of the rich.

Haha, yeah, it took them realizing that no one was going to renew their season tickets if they continued being so greedy! I only hope that this mindset continues (i.e. with concessions, etc.) or they're going to be up a crick with a lot of angry fans chasing them.
