Alabama Fan Files Ethics Complaint Over Public Officials' Football Tickets


By Kristen Fisher

A longtime University of Alabama booster is filing an ethics complaint against state public officials for purchasing Alabama football tickets without paying extra.

The alabama ethics commission, won't confirm or deny the complaint, but says the issue is out of its hands.

According to, a 76-year old man says he's an original Tide Pride member and argues since all season tickets are sold through Tide Pride except for students, faculty, and staff ,public officials are receiving free booster-club membership.

Public officials used to get tickets for free, but a new state ethics law changed it, so officials can now purchase tickets at face-value prices.

I love Alabama and have been a fan for more than 45 years. I tried to get tickets for years wiithout success; seems as those they are sold to those that have inside contacts with loyal fans left out any chance to obtain tickets.
