Back in May, we shared the news that the National Hockey League’s Atlanta Thrashers were still taking orders for season tickets right up until the announcement came that the team would be sold and move to Winnipeg. Disorganized and anti-consumer, sure, but as long as people who put down season ticket deposits for next season get their money back, everything would be okay. Yeah… about that. Fans who had already put down deposits for their season tickets are now getting a runaround, and the team owes each anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.
Season ticket holders weren’t to receive their refunds until the NHL approved the team’s sale. Which happened back in early June.
“It’s just been one excuse after another. Where’s my money at? Where’s my refund? It’s been well over a month from the time it was guaranteed to be sent back to me,” a fan complained to TV station WBS.
Someone seems to have decided that hockey fans in Georgia weren’t disappointed enough already.
