Quite like the idea of not getting bogged down in number of tickets sold for matches. The plan is to sell 500,000 tickets and to deliver a great event that people enjoy and that delivers a good financial return.
If she can deliver than, then good on her. She seems confident and she seems to have a good reputation.
Maybe rather than constantly banging on about how many tickets have been sold, only for people to criticise the actual crowd on the day (eg Challenge Cup final last weekend) she prefers to wait for the usual moaners to expect only 10,000 to be at Cardfiff and to then be pleasantly surprised when a lot more than that are there.
They do need to sell as many tickets as possible though and if grounds aren't full a week before the game, I'd give tickets away in droves to achieve it. They are doing cosmetic surgery presently in order to show the grounds look full, but getting 74,500 bums on seats at Cardiff is a must for mine.
