Ticket Brokers SUCK!!!!!

I lost an ebay auction by 3 fucking seconds and I'm pissed!!!! 3 fucking seconds! I started refreshing the auction at 5:21 pm (ended at 5:29:09 PM) refreshed and refreshed and refreshed at $103 and refreshed one more time with 3 secs left to go and the bid went to $127.50 (my max bid was $125.00) WTF???????????????

OUTBIDDER IS A Dude that has 432 buys for nothing BUT football tix and no sales... Fucking ticket broker.

This should be illegal!

(P.S.... think about this the next time you bid on DMB tix and see all those brokers with face value tix twice as much as they are worth!)

Fuck!!!! (This was for NFL tix)

Exactly what I was thinking. Bid the highest you're willing to pay. If you win, great. If you loose, you tried your best.

Re: Ticket Brokers SUCK!!!!!

one time i was willing to pay like 20 bucks for this cd (it was a press release or something, cant get it in stores) but i put my max bid in at 35 or so b/c i wanted it to automatically outbid the person i was against, i figured no one would have a higher bid than i really wanted to pay. turns out when i had mentioned to my girlfriend i was bidding on it and i told her i wasnt sure how much i should do and if i would actually buy it, she decided to get it for me as a gift. in the end our bidding war cost me $10 extra bc she was bidding against me. lol. kinda funny but sucked.

I did a max bid of $125, it was at $103 all day long, the auction was due to end and the guy got lucky with a $127.50 bid. My max bid (again) was $125. He hadn't bid the entire auction and his history is buying NOTHING but football tix........

I refreshed, refreshed, refreshed from 5 mins to go... and at 3 seconds the fucker bid... I did not have time to bid $128 - Insider JOB? me thinks.... 3 seconds - The bid was my bid at $103 ALL day long until 3 seconds before the auction ended....

Titans/Ravens Tix will not go for less than $160 because of FUCKING BROKERS!!!!

I'll watch it on TV... Stupid Brokers and this is why tickets prices get JACKED UP..........................

Check it out - This the broker that just buys tix and sells them for much more (but you won't find him selling under his name - so if anyone can find the tix i bidded on for sell... then we got a winner!)

Curious, if they would have bid $127.50 earlier in the day, would you have bid more?

yeah. you got a winner doing something completely legal. what they'll do is have some one from a different state sell them to you. some states have laws on scalping others do not.

Ebay auctions always get jacked up right before closing, should have known better than to get too comfortable.

YES, I would have bid higher - But come to think of it now, November 12, it might be a little cold and wet here, so watching it on TV just might be better and a 12 pack is only 9.99 vs 8 bucks for a beer at the stadium... maybe this was a blessing in disquise

Okay, you make a vvery good point - But still Brokers suck

Guess I'm glad I didn't get the chance to bid higher! I can be warm while watching the game!

Well there you go. You're warm, better view, a 12 pack, and you're not $120 poorer. Problem solved.

Re: Ticket Brokers SUCK!!!!!

I thinks ticket brokers should be forced to sell the tickets back to the venues for people who show up last minute, and to be fair so there arent fucking open seats because i didnt pay 250 for a ticket that costs 75. The brokers dont loose money, and the venue may loose some money but would be better off in the end with the option to have tickets to buy last minute, people would trust venues more, sles go up. It works perfectly.

I just have a problem with brokers and I don't know why there isn't a law against that yet - they're going after folks d/l music and fining them, but brokers can get away with asking more than triple the price of face value on ebay, and brokerage sites....

Makes no sense............

Re: Ticket Brokers SUCK!!!!!

I lost to a last second bid for flyers tickets fot last years playoffs. They lost to the sabres 7-1 so I am rather glad that i got outbid.

The home game before that, an awesome 5-4 Flyers victory, I outbid some dude with 12 seconds left, woot to me.

Re: Ticket Brokers SUCK!!!!!

i think it's absurd to make scalping ILLEGAL. i don't believe it is the proper function of my government to regulate what I buy with my own money and who I sell it to.

sure, i don't think it's FAIR and yeah, it does suck. i just don't think it should in any way be a governmental issue.

althought, i personally do wish venues had stricter requirements on how many tickets you can buy... i assume most let u buy quite a few? or do these people just get together and like one dude buys 5, and the next one buys 5 more, and so on?
