    18,230 doesn't sound as sexy as 18,118. I'm still partial to 16,005 but I guess I'll just have to get used to the new number.

    In the 300's there are sections with the front row always "roped" off and the entire row is covered with a black cloth. Also, in the handicap seating areas there are retractable "bleacher seats".

    More seats are needed for more revenue. In order to maintain a near cap payroll one would have to think that tickets are gonna go up on you guys as well soon. Right now your seats are all about half the price we have to pay and our capacity is 20,500 and we sell about 2000 standing room in addition to that. Our owner continues to cry poor and so the prices keep going up and up. It would seem that from a long term view that LA would need to increase prices and seats as well to keep the revenues up and continue competing at this level.

    Our owner owns the building and about 100 more around it. Different situation.

    The hockey revenue still has to generate enough to support the team and that business. I find it hard to believe he's going to run a loss and then use his other holdings to cover the shortfall. Prices have to catch up in LA to support the increasing cap. I just dont' see them keeping your tickets at 50% of what other contenders are getting.

    Then I guess it's good they don't. They charge about $65 a ticket. The hawks and bruins charge about $75 on average.

    Seriously though, do you like even try when you post (what your think are) facts?
