    Fuppin Touts



    Congrats to Leicester they were well worth the win, the fans in the graound were great too lots of colour and noise. There were another bunch of Tigers fans I came accross earlier who managed to really piss me off.


    Got the train down from Dub on Saturday morning. Lots of Leicester fans on it after flying over the day before. Just after leaving Dublin the one-legged tout (he's always touting at Ireland matches but I've noticed him outside Thomond as well recently) came down the train offering €100 for any spare tickets. He did a few more laps offering €150 and then €200. Everyone got off at Lim Junction and another tout turned up, I presume he got off the Dublin train as well. He seemed to know the on-legged guy but went up to the Leciester fans looking for tickets. He offered €300 one of the Tigers fans said yes and the tout pulled a big wad of used €50 notes out of the poca and gave him the €300. A couple more Tigers fans followed suit. I was sitting next to a Tigers fan at this stage who was refusing to sell. He knew the lads who had sold up and started b***hing to them about travelling so far and not even going to the match. I know from reading the Leicester chat room that a lot of fans travelled over without tickets. Anyone who did get one should have been a season-ticket holder or member but to then go off and sell to touts is just disgusting. I can only imagine some of them prob managed to pick up replacements at cost off some genuinely helpful supporters. Don't know if Leicester have any way of tracking where their tickets went but it's a bit too late to do anything now anyway.

    I sent the one legged tout packing, told him he'd lose the other leg if he didn't feck off.

    The kids were having a field day with the recycled tickets yesterday. To be fair to the cops when they got a genuine case where someone had paid a couple of hundred for a used ticket they'd let them in.

    The cops HATE the touts, but because the law is one the touts side there isn't a thing they can do.

    I couldn't believe how many people were there looking for tickets (me included). At one point at around 3.30 there was as many people without tickets as was there with tickets. Maybe about 1,000 people?

    Madness. Utter madness.


    Oh and can someone get rid of that Dub with the loudhailer, he's not funny, he's of little use and doesn't seem to provide any other useful information other than he's a plank!

      The one legged tout was in dolans before the game aswell. he was offering €100 for tickets. Some leicester guys brought over a ticket to auction for the Matt Hamston Fund. The tout got it for €160. People were reluctant to bid against him cause he had one leg. I was trying to tell everyone i could that he was a tout.

        If he bought it for €300 how much did he reckon he was going to sell it for? This amazes me that genuine supporters are willing to encourage this behaviour by willing to buy for over the odds.

            Good on you for telling the one-legged cnut where to go !!!

              I was never so depressed as I was standing outside that game with the
              many others hoping for a ticket, certainly won't travel up to the
              ground again unless I'm sorted. Roll on the new stands and hopefully
              relive some of the pressure of this nonsense. Was chatting to a guy in
              the pub and he said he met someone outside the ground with 500 bucks in
              his hand asking anyone for a ticket. Maddness ...

                500? And I thought I was nuts paying 50 a half hour into the first half!

                  Sorry I was outside Thomond early on, the onelegged wonder was asking in a loud voice any spare tickets 100 euro. Cops could have told hime to move on. I was amazed that he could do that in front of the boys on bikes.

                    I know of a guy working in Nenagh hospital who offered a buddy of mine (a colleague of his own) a ticket for €500. I would love to know who he was and report the git especially if he is a member of Nenagh RFC.

                      that one legged tout came up to me in Dolan's as I was on the door for the prematch. he was begging me for tickets. nearly crying the gowl. told him no, feck off. he goes into the loo and stayed in there for half an hour. Mr Dolan went in and heard him on the phone to some fella saying there was none in dolan's and he was going on to the next pub. he came out and got kicked out. dunno how he got back in to buy the ticket of the leicester fan.

                            Some Leicester fans auctioned a ticket in Dolans before the match in aid of the Matt Hampson trust. The one legged tout won the auction with a bid of €170 (he gave then €175).....he obviously had people waiting for these tickets.
