    Such as StubHub.com, the in-house scalping agency for most NBA, NHL and MLB franchises, kicking the revenue for sold-out games back to the teams.

    PSLs exist in taxpayer funded stadium, like Pitssburgh and Baltimore. Why is it so bad if the Yankees are doing it, especially if the majority of the funding is coming from Yankee ownership?

    Check out the PSLs on eBay, $20K for s PSLs for the Steelers, tickets not included

    Actually, the new Yankee Stadium will look an awful lot like the current Yankee Stadium, with a new facade (that actually is an homage to the look of the original stadium) around the outside of the building and more luxury seating inside. From everything I've seen, it really doesn't look much like Comerica at all (I'll keep my judgement to only Comerica, since it's the only one of the stadiums you mentioned that I've been to.)

    Will the HOK design incorporate the same wonderful features as Comerica Park, like poorly slanted seats and a scoreboard obscured by the seats down the line in left?

    Looks a hell of a lot like Yankee Stadium to me. I haven't noticed any steamship stacks, a hill in center field, an old warehouse in right, a flagpole obscuring third base or a man-eating tiger pit in front of the mound.

    Because they are on their way to sticking it to season ticket holders who have supported team forever - even when they were not getting 4 million fans.

    Up until now there was never any reference to a "license" when it came to buying Yankee season tickets.

    The Yankees are slipping this verbage in now so it will make it easier to make PSL a requirement at new stadium. They are "conditioning" us.

    When seats go on sale for New Stadium and each seat comes with a $100,000 PSL the license idea will have already been established .

    There are long time fans who are going to fight the idea legally and they can make a pretty good argument.

    The Yankees are trying to pull a fast one and no one has called them on it -- yet. There is a great story here for someone.

    Boom, what possible legal argument could one make against PSLs?

    The only thing that surprises me is that the Yankees don't already have it in place.

    That'll be sweet, the year after they go 82-80 and miss the playoffs by ten games.

    Can't wait.
