Redskins Sold Their Own Tickets to Brokers

The Washington Post reports that all those consecutive sellouts for the Redskins are – fake. A story points out the team sold their own tickets to brokers:

Thousands of general admission tickets were sold to brokers, who resold them on the secondary market, often at higher-than-retail prices, according to interviews and internal Redskin documents. These were often tickets to the very seats that Redskins fans have waited years to get. The Redskins acknowledged that the sales were made but said they were against team policy. “Somebody in the ticket office was doing something they shouldn’t have been doing, and when it was discovered, it was all dealt with,” Redskins Senior Vice President Karl Swanson said. “If the story is, this is a scandal, uncovered by Redskins, verified by The Post, or whatever, yeah, we’re telling you: People got tickets who shouldn’t have gotten tickets, and they were dealt with.”
