View Full Version : Wee attendance query thread

Sorry, another one about the rhats attendances, but this is more a genuine query.
The official capacity at the Scumdome is given as 60,832
On the STV news last night they showed pictures of the goals, and it was evident that the front few rows were all blocked off for some reason. No idea if this was all around the ground, it was behind one of the goals, but even so, must have reduced the capacity by a good few hundred, even thousand.

Taking this into careful consideration, I was befuddled that the lassie on the news reported that 65,000 were there. Sky showed it as 60,000
I dont care if there was no one there or a million, but why are the broadcasters being allowed to clearly "up" any figures to make it look like there are millions more going than there are? It cant really be helping celtc that much, they dont get any more money.
