I love my tailgating time, but there's no way i would pay $90+ bucks (current bid on ebay for 2 tailgate tix) to sit outside the stadium that many hours.
The reason they care is that they want their season ticket holders who want them for themselves to have them. And if there's a secondary market for them, then their season ticket holders who can't get them get angry.

So they are scouring the secondary market to see who is trying to sell them, and sometimes buying them. The tailgate passes have the season ticket holder's info on them, so they can take away your privilege to buy them, and your parking pass.

Just passing the info along....
