Drew Rosenhaus: I Represent the Fans of the Florida Panthers

Rosenhaus Thanks to a heads up from Puck Daddy Greg Wyshynski we learn that agent Drew Rosenhaus is somehow getting involved in the Florida Panthers ticket business.

As in trying to get cheaper tickets for fans.

I don't know who hired him, but I thought ticket prices were pretty reasonable at The Billboard.

According to his Twitter tweet that he tweeted 'tis morning, Drew says:  I have been hired by the fans of the NHL's Florida Panthers to negotiate lower season ticket prices. I will keep you posted on the outcome.

Hope so.

Check it out here. If you're into that kind of thing.

No response yet from the Panthers. But since they're checking this out anyway, if they want to comment they know how to get a hold of me.

Here's what Drew's pr folks sent me not too long ago:

“As a longtime Panthers fan and a person who believes in giving sports fans the value and the atmosphere they deserve, I am absolutely thrilled to represent the Cats faithful at the bargaining table,” Rosenhaus said. “That said, this a unique situation for me to represent the fans as opposed to professional athletes. But as a passionate Cats follower, I’ve got my finger on the pulse of the BankAtlantic Center faithful.

“Also, if I can offer a word of advice for head coach Pete DeBoer, president Michael Yormark and the rest of the Panthers front office, ‘be prepared to go low on cost and high on value, and don’t get too comfortable because I’ll be knocking on your door in the next 48 hours.''’

“We felt we needed the very best agent in professional sports to represent us in these negotiations,” said Florida Panthers advisory board member and season ticket holder Nat Levine. “We understand that negotiating season ticket prices may be a first in the industry, but there is simply no option we won’t explore to make sure every South Florida sports fan has the opportunity to experience the excitement of Florida Panthers hockey.''

So, fans of the Panthers: Does Drew represent you, or just The U? Comments welcomed as always.
