>From CNN Money: Re Super Bowl tickets, thousands of which are given to "...
the teams, which end up using brokers to sell them on the secondary market."
So now scalpers (touts - UK) are "brokers" and ply their trade proudly,
making money for the teams in the "secondary market"? Back at World Cup
time, a bunch of people went to jail here in Rio for scalping. They just
picked the wrong country I guess.
