The MIAMI HERALD reports for the seventh straight season, the Dolphins are raising ticket prices, "despite coming off their worst season since 1969."
Most seats will increase $2-6, and the average 7% increase is the largest since a 7.5% increase after the 2001 season. Lower-sideline season-ticket holders will see a $9 increase to $79.
CNBC’s "Bullseye" recently chronicled the outrageous cost of pro sports tickets, citing the Patriots charging $2,500-5,000 in their "Pass It On" program for season-ticket holders to transfer tickets to immediate family.
Jerry Knight of the WASHINGTON POST said sports franchises are "the worst gougers in American business these days. The sports teams will do anything they can to soak their folks."
