We have taken a fair bit of flack from some so called lovers of the game who are opposed to us, running free classifieds where people can well ... trade tickets at market rates. Simple economics ..
David Webb has this to say and I agree with him.
The Rugby Club(s) have a vested interest in making sure that there is a shortage -- because it boosts their membership. They additionaly sell a fair bit of the tickets in bulk to overseas travel agents and to various other commercial groups -- from what I've been told.
So, heres my proposal.
Keep aside 500-1000 tickets to be put on sale, on a live online auction 5 days before the game. 100 tickets auctioned every hour.
Whatever proceeds are collected above face value go to a nominated charity.
There has to be a better way of dealing with this issue, atleast until 2012.
