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.
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
“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
“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.
