agliabue: Probe shows Tice's ticket scalping violated policy


April 6, 2005
SportsLine.com wire reports



BLAINE, Minn. -- An NFL investigation into ticket-scalping has found evidence that Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Tice violated league policy.



Commissioner Paul Tagliabue, speaking at a news conference, said he would discipline Tice soon for his handling of Super Bowl tickets, but did not specify when. Tagliabue said the discipline likely would include fines for reselling tickets, but no suspension.

Tice was being investigated for heading up a ticket-scalping operation within the Vikings organization that included assistant coaches and some players.

Tice denied buying tickets from players since he took over as Vikings coach in 2002, but acknowledged last month that he resold some of his allotment of 12 Super Bowl tickets last season and had also resold his tickets as a Vikings assistant coach from 1996-2001.

Vikings spokesman Bob Hagan said Tice is out of the country on vacation would not be commenting.

Tagliabue said Wednesday that he was told this week by officials investigating the matter that there "were clear violations of our policies."

"At some point, I will be imposing discipline," Tagliabue said. "I don't think it will include a suspension." He said "a fine or multiple fines" would probably be appropriate.

Each NFL player and assistant coach has the right to purchase up to two Super Bowl tickets at face value, whicTh this year was $500 and $600 depending on the seat, but must sign a document saying they won't resell them at a profit.

It is believed that reselling Super Bowl tickets is a league-wide problem, and Tagliabue said the NFL has investigated other situations, but "no other teams were found in violation."

In 1986, Dominic Frontiere, then the husband of Rams owner Georgia Frontiere, pleaded guilty to not reporting income from 2,500 scalped tickets to the 1980 Super Bowl. He was sentenced to a year and a day in jail, was fined $15,000 and received three years probation.

Tice is heading into the final year of a contract that ranks him among the NFL's lowest-paid head coaches.

Though it was stupid of Coach Tice, I don't blame him. The former owner was a notorious tightwad.

I think the most he'll get is a slap on the wrist.

The Vikings sure are making a run at the most corrupt and criminal organization since the Faiders. First they murder Stringer, now this. It's clear that they must be disbanded, or moved to LA, which is prolly a worse punishment.

I wouldn't call Stringer murder, just a unfortunate tragedy.

They are nowhere near the Raiders. The Vikes are just cheap.
