    I 've just been on the official ticket website and there's still tickets available for the opening ceremony. There's two choices left £1600 each or the rather strangely priced £2012 each.

    bear in mind what you're paying to see is a field with some animals that's meant to represent the British countryside and a concert, is it really worth £1600 to see that?

    If I had £1600 to spare without having anything else I particularly wanted to do with the money.. then yeah, why not? As it stands, I don't. So no.

    If I was wealthy I might consider it, and then give it to someone that actually wanted to go.

    If I was a real person with a job and such I might consider it, just to say to my grandchildren I'd been to the historic Olympics

    even if i was rich I wouldn't. It seems rich people are of the same opinion. How can the self styled greatest show of the year still not be sold out with just 2 weeks to go?!!

    Aren't they making fake clouds, using sheep and focusing it on the British countryside?

    Why on earth would I pay for that?


    I'd rather just go sit at a festival or in a country park.

    Absolutely NO WAY! Even if I were rich I would feel so guilty for spending that much on a ticket...no, definitely no.

    Could buy around eight music festival tickets for that.

    So no.

    Regardless of price, I would love to be there. If I was a very rich man, I would be there without a shadow of a doubt.

    Couldn't possibly justify spending that amount on a ticket, even if I was wealthy.

    Being honest? I probably wouldn't pay anything to go. In fact, even if someone was to offer me a free ticket I'd say 'no thanks'. I believe in being proud of my country and wanting team GB to do well but there's a limit to how much I can care about the olympics because I just don't enjoy sport. I don't like playing it and it's very rare that I'll take any pleasure in watching it unless perhaps it's boxing or something that looks particularly amazing like gymnastics, ice skating and sometimes diving. Even with those sports I think I'd rather watch them in the comfort of my own home.

    To see some sheep in a field?

    I can see that out of my bedroom window.

    No, I'd rather spend the money on buying sports memorabilia (signed baseballs, basketballs, photos etc).

    No. But the atmosphere will be amazing and it would be a geeat thing to say you were actually there, in the future.

    Maybe if it wasn't soo over budget, they wouldn't have to charge such rediculous prices. How much were tickets for the Beijing games (considering inflation changes the price/value)?

    No even if I had the money to be honest I'm dreading it if it's anything like what they did in the Beijing closing ceremony.......:rolleyes:.....
