Just when we thought OutKick couldn’t be more on the money: vaccinations are now required to purchase second round Knicks tickets. The team just announced that tickets will be sold exclusively to vaccinated fans rather than sold to anyone who wants them. Ya know, how it’s been done for decades.
The rest of us who live our lives free of fear have to scalp these seats at rates four to fives times face value. Sounds like a scam to us.
Knicks announce Round 2 tickets of the playoffs, should they get there, will be sold exclusively to fans who are vaccinated.— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) May 28, 2021
Fans will need to show documentation on smartphone or physical record card. MSG also accepting the NYS Excelsior Pass, which provides digital proof.
Isn’t this exactly what we all anticipated? Our “get back to normal” meant all private experiences like concerts and sporting events would be ruined by politics forcing us to comply with the whims of handpicked scientists? Rather than allowing people to make their own decisions about vaccinations, the New York Knicks insist on knowing their private medical information. Because they know what’s best for the people — you don’t. You’re a bigot who denies science, remember?
Luckily for us, OutKick readers aren’t attending many NBA games these days anyway. This still matters though because these type of protocols and gimmicks don’t stop with the NBA.
Soon TicketMaster and Stub Hub will join in on the scam. If you don’t believe these major corporations will do exactly that, then look no further than Uber. They were offering free rides last month to get vaccinated, meanwhile they were nowhere to be found during election time. The world is getting their first glimpse of how controlling these private entertainment industries can get. Buckle up.
