SENATORS TICKET POLICY A HIT WITH CORPORATE CLIENTS

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