Whilst I really hope he is not guilty of selling on tickets for profit, I am not displeased that he has been arrested never have been a fan of his or how he conducts himself.

The Olympics in general has turned into a shambles.

Wonder what his next move was going to be? Hope they forgot about it and just fly back to Ireland?

From what is coming out ATM, the total lack of complaints from people not receiving their tickets seems to have been answered. Looks like they were never on sale in the first place. PRO10 seems to be a 'Fence' Company, which was formed by (Insert Who/Company/Organisation you think it could be) to divert Tickets to THG with the purposes of selling said tickets for jnflated prices. Must be some squeaky bums in the OCI ATM.

Ah, I've been trying to figure out why people who bought tickets didn't complain when they didn't get them. Sounds reasonable.

Check out strong rumour in first week of the month that a Brazil-based Oil Company did not get its Corporate packages delivered.

This might lift the lid on 'cartel-like' repackaging arrangements for Corporate Hospitality partners of sports Governing Bodies, possibly even our own beloved IRFU. Anybody remember discontent with the previous activities of the Company owned and named after a former England Rugby Union Prop?

Tickets and Corporate Hospitality are one of the biggest sources of cash to major sports businesses, particularly Governing Bodies. If this topic really gets examined, a lot of names and blood will flow in Irish sport.
