    Bama tells faculty/staff to not sell tickets for profit

    From the "just in case you didn't know it" files:

    Current UA employees are considered public employees under the Alabama ethics law.


    As such, UA employees cannot sell or trade their faculty/staff football ticket order form or their purchased faculty/staff tickets for a profit. Such a sale is considered using a public position for personal gain, which is a violation of the Alabama Ethics Act.


    UA officials investigate reports of any employee selling faculty/staff tickets for more than they paid for them. Employees found to have profited from the sale or trade of faculty/staff tickets are subject to being reported to the Alabama Ethics Commission, which can levy fines and criminal charges.


    In addition, all faculty, staff and retirees who violate this policy are subject to penalties from the Intercollegiate Athletics office. Those penalties include revocation of current season tickets and bans on the purchase of faculty/staff tickets in the future.

    Nothing new. Probably wanted to remind folks because a lot of new f/s got tickets this year since it seems many grayhairs passed on this year’s home schedule.

    Not sure if this is banned everywhere or not, but it is banned at OSU.

    The more I think about this the more I realize that they're probably showing their teeth on this because they are having trouble selling out season ticket packages.

    Single game tickets went on sale today. TN game included. In fact, looks like every game other than LSU is included.

    May not be profs and staff, but a lot of folks are apparently selling tickets at a LOSS. Just checked StubHub and can tickets for Kickoff Classic for less than $50......

    This will hopefully make New Mexico tickets more affordable...as if the mid afternoon kick in early Sept hadnít already done so.
