Following problems with online ticket sales for Hannah Montana and the Colorado Rockies state lawmakers are considering making it a crime for buyers to trick web ticket sites so they can hoard tickets.

During the Rockies' first failed attempt to sell world series
tickets last fall Rockies' Senior Vice President Hal Roth told lawmakers that, ``automated robotic systems,'' were detected by the web site.
He said that's still being investigated by the F.B.I.

The bill has the support of the Rockies, Denver
Broncos, Colorado Avalanche and the Denver Nuggets.
