    C'mon guys, lets be serious. As I said before my ticket isn't in that section, I'm in the midfield. And the auction is just business, has nothing to do for my love of Mexico or dislike of US soccer. The rivalry is in on the field not about trying to screw people's business or anything else outside of the field of play. You can say all you want about our fans and I agree with most of what you guys say especially about throwing beer, and shit because I'm not one of those guys, but by you guys talking like this you guys have really reached a new low if you guys condone this activity. thanks

    Individuals who genuinely wish to attend a popular event may find themselves unable to get tickets, as they have already been sold to ticket resellers. This practice enables the ticket resellers to sell the tickets at market value, with no effective loss because they had no intention of attending the event in the first place. Resellers argue that there is a fine line between the individuals who genuinely wish to attend a popular event (and decide to sell on their tickets later) and those that buy tickets in large quantities in order to resell their tickets for a hefty profit. The practice of reselling tickets may be defended on "free market" principles although some countries have outlawed the unauthorized resale of tickets (usually with exceptions where the reseller doesn't profit from the transaction).
    Resale of tickets at sold-out events can also encourage those without tickets to turn up at the venue, in the hope of purchasing one. This can cause crowd control problems, with numbers in excess of the venue's limits approaching it, and the access of those with tickets being hampered by a sizeable number of those without.

    If people do mess up your auction I'm sure it is because they are genuinely concerned about crowd control problems.

    You probably are right, because US soccer fans aren't used to filling up a single stadium when US plays anyone else besides Mexico, and since generally speaking US soccer fans are guys that can't stand up to anything when confronted face to face you have to resort to screwing with people auctions to control the crowd because you aren't used to it. Thanks for the clarification.
