Default Free Beer!!!

Unlimited free beer for Lightning fans?


The Tampa Bay Lightning is hoping to tap into larger crowds by offering unlimited free beer to season ticket holders.

But the sudsy sale may not reach its goal if safe-driving advocates have their way.
Police and several area chapters of Mothers Against Drunk Driving say the hockey team's offer is irresponsible.

"Why attach alcohol to a season-ticket plan? It's almost encouraging people to drink more than they should because it is free," said Sgt. Chris Velar, who runs the Police Department's drunken driving squad.

During the first Eastern Conference playoff game between the Lightning and the Philadelphia Flyers Saturday, the St. Pete Times Forum's main scoreboard advertised the offer. Those who paid $100 toward 2004-05 season tickets were eligible for unlimited free beer during the game.

About 25 of the 21,000 people at the game signed up for season tickets, said team spokesman Bill Wickett.

People who are already intoxicated aren't served beer and free taxi rides are provided to patrons who believe they have had too much to drink, Wickett said.

This has to be the best offer a team can offer to fans. Stupid Madd trying to ruin it for everyone. But I have a feeling this will be abused. There will be alot of beer going to waste and alot of people who aren't season ticket holders getting alot of free beer.

It won't do shit for increasing season ticket sales. In San Jose, they were giving out playoff tickets if you got season tickets for the next year. It's just gimmick stuff. Also, why beer? Give out something that lasts longer than a buzz. And it is irresponsible. Give em free food or something. Free beer just makes the whole organization look like it's run by a frat house.

No one really cares about food. I never go to games and eat a meal, and i'm sure not many people either. People want beer. But playoff tickets are a way better idea. I'm pretty sure New York Islanders are doing that too.

Anyways I was reading on tsn that they nixed the idea...

Sharks always do well in that area. People in the Bay Area have always loved them.
