The SEC basketball tournament moved to a smaller arena because of the other arena getting hit by bad weather (maybe a tornado).
Now, instead of working out some way to determine which fans will get to watch games (lottery, first-come-first-in, etc.), the SEC banned all regular fans. Only VIP's and roadies getting to watch the game in the arena.
Just imagine, you're a Kentucky fan who drove 8 hours to get to Atlanta. You paid for an entire weekend at a hotel (not to mention gas, meals, etc.) - you probably even took time off work. Now you don't even get a chance to watch the game(s) you paid for. And you get to drive back 8 hours.
