A Lesser Evil??

I just read in the sports section of today’s O that the Blazers are no longer going to use Ticketmaster. They’re now going to use a company called New Era. Anyone ever use them to buy tickets? Could they be any worse than Ticketmaster?

I hate Ticketmaster. A friend recently bought tickets for a Live Wire show through Ticketmaster and there was a 100% mark up. Which is even more evil when it turns out it was for a ticket they purchased on-line and printed up on their home PC.

    it makes sense though. the rose garden is managed by Global Spectrum, a Comcast company. New Era is owned by Comcast.

    I wonder when the team will be owned by Comcast…

    Hmm….I though Ticketmaster was owned by Paul Allen….at least in part. Signal that he is about to sell the team?
