Those seats are not about going to a baseball game, any more than membership at Augusta National is about golf. It's about networking, selling, and closing deals. (The reason the ban on women at AN is so big a deal is because it closes off a HUGE deal making network to female executives and sales resources.)
I have a hard time they make it a point to tell ticket buyers that they can't where clothes with the opponents logo. I tend not to read the back of tickets or the 2 pages of fine print in a deal like this. I assume that if I go to the game and treat people respectfully, I will be fine.
the team told them when they booked, I'm sure over the phone, not to wear Dodger gear because it's a branding issue
but the idea that regular people should give two shits about multi-millionaire business women being denied networking opportunities is ridiculous.
I would have no problem if Augusta National burned to the ground.
The only issue at Augusta is whether 4 or 5 insanely wealthy and powerful women will be admitted.
And if you don't like watching the first 15 or 17 holes, just tune in for the finish. It's what many of us do for the NBA.
I'm all for class warfare and burning things to the ground; but as a golfer, this statement is just plain wrong. I've even played two US Open Courses, Olympic (CA) and Bethpage Black - and someday in the next three years, Pebble. I certainly haven't played Augusta until Sam can neck-stab someone to get me on the course, but you don't need to play it to see its greatness. It isn't just window shopping for crappy expensive shat Bloomingdales.
Nobody goes -9 at Winged Foot.
Oh, and BTW, Davis Love III won the '97 PGA Championship that was held at Winged Foot with a -11.
Doesn't the USGA make it point to toughen up courses before the Open? My understanding is they have the rough grown out and make the greens harder or maybe change the pin placement to be especially difficult or some kind of sadistic thing like that.
To give an example, I know a guy who played Wing Foot about two weeks before the last Open, and he said you could put your beer down in the rough, and nor be able to find it.
You still haven't answered how Love managed to beat your unattainable Winged Foot score.
it's only gorgeous because they restrict play, spend an insane amount, and use masses of pesticide and fertilizer to make it pretty for a few weeks.
Whining about how boring and unimportant you find golf is adolescent at the very best.
do they use insane amounts of pesticides and fertilizer or have they reduced it from an insane amount?
The game that introduced me to gaming.
They probably let them grow that long before the tournament, and then cut them back for actual play.
They booked a 3000 dollar suite at field level directly behind home plate, and the team told them when they booked, I'm sure over the phone, not to wear Dodger gear because it's a branding issue and it's a D Backs broadcast and they didn't want to advertise for the Dodgers in the prime location for 3+ hours. Is this so hard to understand ?
I think your points are very clear, and correct. The Diamondbacks have the right to demand reasonable restrictions as long as they clearly communicate the restrictions to the buyer, which they obviously did.
clarification. I wasn't trying to make a buck. I thought the face value was $30. it was $29 so the cop busted me.
Sorry for defending this. I was wrong.
