Shocking News: It's a Drew Rosen-hoax ... Panthers, Agent in Cahoots ... NOW! With Frozen Poll ... David Booth to Team USA Orientation

Rosenhaus2 Earlier this morning, South Florida based agent Drew Rosenhaus sent out a note (some call them twits, but I didn't want to go there) on his Twitter account saying he now represented the fans of the Florida Panthers and would be working with the team to negotiate lower season ticket prices.

I knew there was something fishy going on here because this one just didn't pass the sniff test. I mean, the commission on something like this must be pretty small and we all know Drew don't work for free (well, not for the Panthers, anyway).

So, either it was Drew trying to get attention, or a new marketing ploy by the Panthers.

It's both.

The Panthers have said that yes, Rosenhaus is working with the Panthers to try and drum up ticket sales. The marketing campaign will basically surround Rosenhaus with him negotiating lower ticket prices with the team on behalf of the fans.

Here's what I hear is in the works: The Panthers will lower prices in sections 107-111 for seats in the upper part of the lower bowl. These tickets will cost $35 per game for those committing to a season ticket plan. Other parts of The Billboard could also see lower pricing ''thanks'' to Drew Rosenhaus.

Those who have already bought tickets in these sections will be given a refund to match the current price.

Good for them.

Now back to regularly scheduled programming. This story's 15 minutes are up.

-- Congrats to David Booth to being invited to Team USA's Orientation Camp later this summer. Keith Ballard was not on the list but that doesn't mean he can't make the team.

Maybe the Panthers are trying to make us laugh with Rosenhaus b/c come tomorrow at midnight we are going to be crying.

WOW, Huge shocker, LOL, The Panthers are just a pathetic organization..

Why can't they just promote these types of ticket offers without making it seem like a bush league sideshow? This just opens the organization up to more ridicule IMO.

Whatever

lol. wow. this is good news. no i can buy them from the scalpers out side for ten bucks? great job guys. lol. how are we going to afford to pay a top 6 forward if we are giving away cheaper seats and cutting into the profit to spend on the team? lets go CATS

The Panthers suck. I'm mad that they are the only team around that I can actually go see on a regular basis. Can you imagine what Mellon Arena is going to look like next year?

Hey, at least we didn't just trade Chris Higgins for Scott Gomez and his 8 million dollar a year contract. Boy, I actually feel sorry for the Habs right now. HAHAHA!

BSSB, I'm kinda bummed that Montreal helped the Rangers out on that one. Slats was burying the team under stupid contracts and here he just got a "get out of jail free" card by Montreal.

This is one of the lamest things I've ever heard of.

Regardless of cheaper ticket prices, we better go shopping early in the free agency market or we will find ourselves without a team to cheer on.

Bo signed 5 years @6.6 per. The only good news about it is that Keenan is not there to benefit from him.

I didn't read about the years or money, but good for him.

Fire Yormark for another stupid pr stunt.
Talk about bush league, maybe Yormark should run a ECHL team except he is too bush for them

What a wonderful article you shared.I found that your article is so constructive and full with life wisdom.You must be a really mature guy!
