King George raises ticket prices, blames the labor agreement

The price of the field and box seats, which include waiter service, will be $72 per game next season, the team said Friday. The seats, which are available only as part of season plans, had a $65 face value this year but in effect cost $62 because season packages contained discounts.

Why do I get the feeling that Jerry Reinsdorf reads something like this and gets green with envy at the fact he can't charge prices like this? Even considering that everything costs more in New York, that's a hefty price to pay for a ballgame, even for a team in perpetual contention.

Most fans will pay 72 dollars for a box seat if they know the owner will do everything he can to win with their money instead of putting it in his bank account.

We should be so lucky!
