    Just in case anyone is interested in SOO in November:dodgy:.

    Received this email from the NRL and was outraged at their money grabbing scam to screw the Fans yet again.
    (A password was included but I omitted it here)

    This, together with their inequitable scheduling , demonstrates that they are actively discouraging live attendance at games:mad::mad:

    ---------------------------------------------------
    Ticketed Club Members will be able to purchase their tickets from Wednesday, November 28, at 10am until Thursday, November 29 at 9pm.

    The airlines and hotels do the same thing. Nothing wrong with dynamic pricing. Early birds will be the winners.

    I seem to be the only one on the side of spectators who love attending live games :shy:

    Gouging the SOO crowd seems counter productive, as Sydney based games have trouble selling out when there is two allocated.

    It will be interesting to see how much premium the stragglers will be asked to pay in 2013.

    I love attending live games, hence why I can see what the date is, mark it in the calendar, and buy my tickets now and get them cheaper. Perfect

    The dynamic pricing structure for the Sydney SOO ended up working perfectly. The game sold out close to the day of the game, and the NRL had minimal negative feedback.

    It will be interesting to see if the same pans out for next year.
