Russians stealing tickets

This is sick.

http://www.iltalehti.fi/mmjaakiekko2...96175_j0.shtml

- A large number of russians closed access to the box-offices where the pre-reserved tickets were to be collected. If the tickets were not redeemed on time they would go back on sale

- it may have been orchestrated operation (I assume ticket scalpers)

- scalpers asked up to 1000 euros for a ticket before the match

Bully scalpers. So what. People grow some balls or were they showing guns there?

But still another crap for the organizers.

Lol, they'd never try to pull that sh*it in Canada. They'd be run out of town in a second.

Organizers already commented it as false news...Iltalehti again made a story out of their butts and with color pen. There were rush but they made two different lines.

Lol, that's retty clever but rather mean. On the other hand, if Russians only put their energy into something constructive...

I believe it was Karl Marx who said, "scalpers of the world, unite."

I have a feeling if that really happened there would be at least a few dead bodies.

This circles around a little more, and I can see Helena Eronen's proposal for Russians to wear red-black sickle and hammer badges to go through in the parliament
