Montreal Juniors oversell arena, turn away Season Ticket Holders
The article is in french, but basically the jist is that the Junior oversold the game versus the Remparts from Quebec thinking that a lot of fans wouldn't show up (jeez,selling out a game vs Patrick Roy's team in Montreal, who would have thunk it), and to deal with the situation, instead of refusing the ticket holders that were the oversells or giving them standing room or something else, they refused the Season Ticket Holders, of all people at the door.
So once it was filled, the workers simply closed the doors. Moreover, the announcer said during the first intermission that if you leave the arena, you'd have to buy another ticket to get back in.
And the president of the team basically had no excuse to justify it. From what I've heard, it's not the first case of mismanagement by the president and the owner of the Montreal Junior. It's really a shame that a team with such promise and potential to win the Q and even the memorial cup this year is run by such a bad manager... #Hockey
