The same thing happened here in Sydney. Regular people can't get their hands on tickets but empty seats for sponsors and media sections.

And selling the tickets half way through the day, and you are surprised that no one showed up ?

I don't think you understand the cost of these things. Grow up

You can't get hold of a ticket without going to a tout, I think that's the problem.

They were giving the sponsors way too many tickets that they didn't re sell.. England started taking tickets away from them to put them on sale

Really? I thought it was pretty cool. Much, much better than I thought it was going to be.

Lmao... USA did a good job against Montenegro, they are a very underrated side!

A friend of mine got sent out in the GB v Romania game, and another (won't say friend this time... hated playing against the guy at junior level) sent one of the Romanians to the dressing room with a nasty cut around his eye. It is a real shame that the GB water polo committee fell out with 3-4 of our best players, or we would have been able to compete with Romania and possibly beat them.

I'm mainly watching Men's Football and then some other events when it's not on. Fencing is intense, cool thing to watch. This was my first time ever seeing Handball and it looks weird to me.
