Exclamation Raptors season ticket dispute headed to court

Quote:
A Raptors season-ticket holder alleges the team’s owner, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, treated him “like dirt” by installing a new row of premium seats directly in front of his $915 courtside seats.

MLSE says the aggrieved fan is a dishonest and cunning scalper.

A judge will settle the clash.

After a flurry of court filings, unsuccessful mediation and a lengthy discovery process over the past four years, Toronto businessman Mark Michalkoff’s complaint against MLSE is heading to a courtroom.

A trial over the dispute is scheduled to start Nov. 15 in Ontario Superior Court in Toronto and is expected to last a week.

“All we were looking for was for MLSE to say they were sorry, but they didn’t even answer us,” said Michalkoff, who is suing MLSE for $1.6 million.

“Then they insult us by calling us scalpers in a counterclaim,” he told the Star. “I’m ready to go to court and have it out. I don’t think there’s anything they can do to stop it now.”

Why..? He paid to be at the front and he should be at the front, its bullshit they added seats with no warning. I'm sure if it was your seats you'd be up in arms as well.. its a lot of money, don't kid yourself.

Ya but if you think of it, if you paid that much for FRONT ROW, and it turns out it wasn't front row, because of some random new seating out of nowhere... then there is some guy in front of you gettin in your way (i don't have that problem because I'm a big lankster) but I can see where he is coming from.

Still... 1.6 million? Get out man, not even a realistic amount. Give em a thousand and tell em to go away.

So, you sell courtside seats at crazy prices... and then you install a new row right in front...
That's just lame.

Courtside is special. There's a reason why ppl pay extra.

MLSE sold fans courtside seats at 70k a year. And then asked for another ~50-60k for them to get the real courtside seats.
That's just a pure scam.
I would be pissed too.

1.6 mil might seem a lot. But that was a ~25 year cost to upgrade into the real courtside seats.
If he's a loyal fan, that's the money MLSE was trying to fuck him over for.
Fair enough.
