    Qwest Field Rip-Off: unfair beer practices.

     

    Qwest Field, home of the MLS's Seattle Sounders FC and NFL's Seattle Seahawks, sells all sorts of gameday musts: hot dogs, kettle corn and beer. They serve beer in two sizes, "small" and "large". The large costs $1.25 more than a small. Makes sense, right? But wait...how come the small and large have the same volume? That's right. The "small" and "large" hold the same volume of liquid, but you pay more for the "large". The issue is that they are charging more for the same amount of product as the smaller size. "Large" and "small" are volumetic measurements. The "large" is taller than the "small", but has the same volume. They should call it a "tall". At least that is more accurate as "tall" is a spacial measurement.

     

    The news is spreading on Twitter, and local news affiliates are already investigating. I even filed a complaint with the Washington State Attorney Generals Office.

     

    Just another example of the corporate rape. What a rip-off!
