SENATORS TICKET POLICY A HIT WITH CORPORATE CLIENTS

     Controversy erupted yesterday over the initial sale for
Senators' tickets for seats in the new Palladium when the team
admitted the existence of a corporate client list that will get
the chance to buy ahead of many long time season-ticket holders.
Senators Senior VP Brian Ashe acknowledged the two lists, but he
said the corporate list would be merged with the main list of
fans who pledged $25 "long before Ottawa was awarded" an NHL
team.  Starting today, the Senators are treating the main list
and corporate list "equally," serving one from each, until the
corporate list of about 300 customers is finished.  Ashe said
they tried to use "the fairest approach," but noted the team
"depends heavily" on corporate clients who buy ads and Palladium
Club memberships (Michael Prentice, OTTAWA CITIZEN, 3/29).
