This is where years of watching mafia movies and shows can really pay off --

Actually, I'm not sure how you implement it, but in a perfect world, I'd love to see their points zero'd out.

Ha, I don't even really have anything good or creative to add - I just really like the topic. LI'd agree with you though that the best possible punishment is just knocking them down in the points. There's no better illustration of pricing out the real fans than seeing Red (or any opposing color) in the reserved seats. Infuriating!

Honestly, I think that there is a couple of things you could do. 1) you could zero out their points and start them fresh at the bottom. 2) season ticket holders that do so are banned from buying season tickets for any KU sport for 2 years (to include basketball). How many people would risk losing their basketball season tickets for a single game? Not too many I would imagine.

The only problem is tracking it...and can you actually legally prevent people from selling their tickets on e-bay at face value or giving them to friends? My parents had season tickets a several years ago and i know they couldn't make it to a game so they gave the tickets (4) to some friends...those friends took two of their friends who were Okie State fans to the game. My parents didn't know that two of their tickets were going to be going to Oklahoma State fans. If people sell their tickets on stub-hub, e-bay, etc. they have no way of knowing who is actually going to get the tickets. Even if you ask, there is no way to guarantee it.

I think that it is just one of those things that is hard to really track.

Yeah, without forming some sort of fascist group, it is sort of impossible to enforce. I do think you could get volunteers for each section to write down seat numbers, but that system is prone to all kinds of issues ... like corruption and mistakes.

I think the only real recourse we have is to let it be known that you are total dirtbag with absolutely no soul if you do this.
