To be honest my feelings on this are same as they with anything you buy on ebay.

It's not what the person selling is asking 4 the item its what people are willing to pay.

I dont think you can blame someone for making money and so long as it is legal , scruples and consience dont come into it.

I see how UB fans can get angry about it, people cashing in on the fact that someone will pay big money to get the ticket than a non ub fan seemed to be able to get their hands on easily enough.

BUT ... Thats business isnt it. ?

CONTRAVERSIAL maybe but i have seen much worse things happen on ebay.

At the end of the day NO BUYERS = NO SALE.

So he or she would not be able to make any money if no one was buying it.

I think the real Q is how they managed to get the ticket to sell in the first place. IF its cus they got up earlier and got in there 1st, isnt it a case of FAIR PLAY to them ?

( as i know this post is gonna be as popular as a ginger haired step son ) SORRY to any red heads( digs hole deeper ). :o

IM OFF :eek: BBL graemlins/laff.gif >>>>>>> tiptoes out.

The bit that realy pisses me off is i dont work as i was in a car accident in 94 and injured my head so you can imagine the money situation ie dole money etc so it was going to be tight getting tickets for any gig for me in the first place but people like that on ebay make it even harder i cant get tickets for a while yet so imagine what shite im gonna get(if i do) my wifes said well just get your self a ticket and go but i cant do that to her as i wanted to enjoy this together and i wouldnt enjoy iy knowing shes missing out.

Any how thats my grumble about ebay out the way lol sorry graemlins/laff.gif
