Daily News finds a silver lining in the availability of cheap Nets tickets

In an article today headlined Cheap premium tickets available to see New Jersey Nets, NBA's worst team, the New York Daily News reports:
New Jersey Nets fans finally have something to be happy about.

Premium tickets to see the woeful NBA team play are selling for less than the cost of a stadium beer - as little as $7 - on sites like eBay and StubHub.com.
Well, it depends on which fans we're talking about. If fans with season ticket packages are unloading tickets because they don't want to see the team any more--or if they can't attract friends/guests--then those fans aren't happy; they're losing money.

And perhaps the market is simply speaking; a ticket has become cheaper than a movie because the quality of entertainment is (often) lower. And, of course, the cost of a visit, including parking/transportation and refreshments, is much higher than the ticket.
