: : : : : A few marquee match ups on day 1

: : : : $10 or $12 for admission and $5 parking if you go to the games at Damien. I wanted to go check out some of the games but I'm not gonna let Leduc rip me off like that.

: : : Wow. That's ridiculous to go see a high school game. I get it for CIF Finals, but a mid-season Christmas tournament? It's one thing for a guy dropping $15 just out to go see a couple games while the wife thinks he's out returning unwanted Christmas gifts.. but what about mom and dad and little brother going out to see their kid play? That's $35/day (3 admissions plus parking) and the team plays 4 times. So they've made it where that family of 3 is going to drop $140. Students showing up to see their buddies play? Not going to happen. That's not right.

: : Gotta make some money for all the work being done. Plus it keeps some of the Jerks out of the Stands. People pay that much to see a movie or even more to go out to dinner. Can't do much for under $12 anymore.

: This is high school basketball, not a Hollywood blockbuster production with the costs and overhead of Star Wars. Hell, it's not even on the scale of the costs to produce an Indie pic.

: You've got a gym, some refs, some insurance costs, a "hospitality" room (knowing LeDuc, that's par for the course) for the "media" and coaches, and the costs of some facility staff to keep the lights on.

: This is price-gouging, plain and simple, and it's contrary to the entire concept of high school athletics for the athletes, the school community and parents and friends.

: Simply put, it's an outrage and bullshit, and the images from the stands of empty seats are the most apt statement about the prices being charged.

:People have to work ! That's why a small crowd in the afternoon .
