What odds the IOC & the Marcus Evans Group now look to package this up neatly as a quintessentially Irish problem, now dealt with?

Ooops. Silly me. Encouraging gambling on an Olympic event. I should be ashamed.

You make it sound like equivalent of cracking the Enigma code; when its more like finishing the Kiddies crossword in the Sunday World :roll:

The IT phoning up Pro10's office in Lucan, & getting a message from THGs voicemail, an organization that already has criminal cases against it in Brazil, is amateur hour stuff. When you add the fact that Hickey's son works for THG ....

Isn't he best mates with Putin from all the judoing? Seriously I think they are good mates. Considering what they have done to FIFA after Russia getting awarded the WC you would have thought Pat would have the sense to stay at home.

Oh, I have no doubt that he is. But someone pointed the Brazilian police in the right direction, and I imagine that person holds an Irish passport, and knows all about the ticketing 'arrangements'.

wtf ? so you're not so much concerned at the fact that he's as crooked as a FIFA official more that a paddy tipped the cops off ? Sunday Times did a "great", less than complimentary article about him at the weekend....finishing with a smiley face that John Delaney was tipped as his replacement

What ?

I think Hickey has fúcked over enough people involved in sports in Ireland for one of them to seize the opportunity when it presented itself. That's all.

"lads can you hurry things up ? i've a flight to catch, 3 hookers charging by the hour and a mate from Columbia showing up in half an hour.....and the missus thinks I'm already at the airport"

At a news conference this afternoon, Rio police said they went to Mr Hickey's hotel in the Barra district of the city this morning, but Mr Hickey was not in his room.

They were told by his wife that he had left for Ireland, but police discovered Mr Hickey in another room at the hotel.

It is just touting a few tickets- who does that harm? If you were to read the shît been spouted all over the internet at the moment you would think he he was an arms dealing pedrophilic. He has enriched himself through shrewd politicking - how awful

Hickey is far from the little man. He is one of the most powerful men in world sport. He is president of the European Olympic Committee and well as being one of 15 board members on the IOC. He is on first name terms with the likes of Putin and many of the tinpot despots in the Stans. He wields his power like a school yard bully ruthlessly dealing with anyone who dares oppose him. He has thrown many under the bus in the past and will undoubtedly try to do so now if it will save his own skin. Pat Hickey's primary concern has always been Pat Hickey.

3,000,000 worth of tickets, & that's just the Rio Olympics, THG are in the merde in Brazil because of the scams they ran during the World Cup, where because of the demand, I'm sure the payoff was much. much bigger !!

Nothing commie about it, I am all for a fair market.

Ticket touts though are scum. Without exception. It is ripping people off, pure and simple.

There's nothing fair about it, it is illegitimate business.
