Limited number of tickets available for Jan. 12 playoff game

The Patriots have announced that a limited number of tickets are still available for the team's AFC Divisional round playoff game on Jan. 12 at 8 p.m.

The tickets will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m., but there are some provisos: they will only be sold via Ticketmaster (ticketmaster.com or 508.931.2222), there is a four ticket per person limit, and purchases can only be made with a Visa card (they're a league and team sponsor).

Prices, set by the NFL, are as follows: $164, $130, $115 and $95.

There's just ONE problem with that. Isn't it illegal to discriminate based on payment form- specifically when you are allowing for a specific type of payment form (via credit card), but dictating which type of card is accepted (Visa only)?
