jesus christ are you all really this big of a bunch of freeloaders?

"waaah give us more cheap/free stuff that's not enough"

don't go to the games if you don't like it, more tickets available for other people


Again, I'd much rather see the Canucks organization do nothing than offer up a pathetic apology and a gesture to show how much they "care" about their fans. I won't buy tix or merchandise so it doesn't affect me. Seems like the Canucks always blow it when it comes to appreciating their fans whether its that pathetic 7th man banner or this pathetic gesture. It makes the organization look like a mickey mouse organization.

As far casual employees go, the point is to maintain a happy and efficient workforce, one that feels it is valued and appreciated by their employers as they go through a tough economic labour struggle that doesn't involve their working conditions. This is Management 101. It's a pittance to make a substantial difference.


The intent of casual employees is that they are only called in as needed. They must know that these are the conditions of their employment. Their hours are not guaranteed. I'm sure they're just happy to be working again and seeing familiar faces. It does not make sense for a company not making any money to be giving away money to it's employees, especially when the terms of their employment does not entitle them guaranteed work. Such employees should just be happy/grateful to earn a bit of money again...you cannot take your job for granted and just be thankful you have a job especially in this economy.

Uhhhhh..... *speechless*
Cheaper than WHL hockey

Florida Panthers: season tix start at $7 per game. Get free parking and jersey. Don't have to commit to next season.


Isn't that their regular priced tix anyway? Yet we wonder why lockout happens. Buttman should just move these teams somewhere else. With $7 I can't even buy a burger in Vancouver yet you can buy a hockey ticket, free parking, free food, free jersey and a beer in Florida. That is freaking pathetic even with the poor US economy. We pay $300/tix for the Canucks to support bum teams like FLA.

If Hollywood actors were locked out/went on strike, what would you see in the theatre the first time there is a new movie? Dicounted tickets, free popcorn? I don't think so.


Even without lockouts and actors going on strike, silvercity still does have free movie days with $1 popcorn with the proceeds going to charity (children foundation or children's hospital). So yes, some still offer up something even if lots of people go to watch movies and pay for expensive tix and popcorns.

Lol... no you wouldn't. Nerd rage is the rule, the rest is details. If they had done nothing you would be beaking about that.

That's pretty nice considering the Canucks don't owe the fans squat.

Internet nerds? Uh nice one. Spend no money on the team? How would you know that? You yourself are a internet nerd who spends "no money on the team"


Yeah. My 5 season tickets that cost 35,000 dollars must be a lot less expensive that your Canucks pencil crayons.

That's how it is. The teams that make money, are cash cows for the league, the teams that don't are on corporate welfare.

The Canucks are a Cash cow.

We are all just teats on the cow!

Go Canucks :towel:

I personally think they should have done nothing at all rather than give out this garbage. The reason is that if they did nothing at all then they would at least be in a position where they feel they didn't do anything wrong (fair enough). However they decide to give something to a few fans for the mistakes they are now acknowledging they made and the rest of the fans basically suck it up. To me that is ridiculous.

As businessmen, they're smart for not lowering their prices. In Vancouver, a hockey hungry market, people will pay what they ask if not more.

Currently, as a business student, this sucks for people like me.

People should really stop complaining how their lives suck.

If you don't like it, go do something about it.

Quit complaining about this and that. Why something is so damn expensive or we should boycott this. They should do more of that, give me this, give me that ...


HOCKEY IS BACK! WATCH THE GAME! IF YOU CAN GO TO THE GAME, WATCH IT HOME OR THE BAR!

ST*U AND STOP B*******


If you don't like it is up to YOU to do something about. NOT others to do something for you!

Well let's just say when I get back the money I spent on tickets for the games against the Leafs and Habs...it ain't going to tickets. Maybe concert tickets. More likely, liquor.

Haha. Season Tickets aren't going to be ready until the 1st week of February.

We have to print them out from our accounts. Oh, well. That's pretty understandable considering how much work goes in to making them.
