Maybe the ceremony have scare the crap of everyone ?
the demons running near childrens sleeping in their bed

I sense a big bowcot of the olympic
usualy its full of people like we had in Montreal 67

Is it me or the soldiers look totaly bored to death
i think they are not there because they want to
but because they have been ordered to fill the seats
not very substle in uniform .. to lazy to wear civilians clothes ?

This edition is already becoming one to go down in history books no matter if nothing happens. What an absolute joke this is.

They are not paid to watch the games either.

Winter games, summer games, every two years there's another mass media hoopla over these things. It's over-saturated and boring.

I found the Vancouver ceremony a trillion time better then what they have showed in London
and it is one of the most expensive one ever
not even popular .. now they have to order the poor soldier to fill out big empty space
i have saw it on TV .. there is nobody only a few people
familly and friends of the athletes
Phelps dont seem to have the same energy when its empty like that

I believe it could DEFINITELY be an issue of the horrible economic problems everyone is having as well.
Another theory I have is that someone has warned the people who can afford those seats against going for some reason.

yeah, you could be on to something. Dont want any TPTB to be there. We need them to run the shadow goverments.

Let me guess, they will hire actors to fill the empty seats for the rest of the games. They could have solved the problem by selling tickets for all the seats instead of reserving seats for VIPs. There was strong enough demand to require a lottery for tickets.

Global athletic competition will only be important if the media makes it important.

All of these kinds of events... are as important as the media says they are. It is the quintessential "entertainment for the masses" tool .... some are not buying in, others are discovering that the honor and dignity of apex sports is only a vehicle to deliver advertising.

In the end the athletes will remain focused on their physical art; but what the people see of the circus around them is totally in the hands of the elite.... it almost always has been.

I think part of it is the outrageousness of the Olympics rules, and that isn't London's fault.

The political nanny-police have ruined too many of the sports trying to even the playing fields and cater to the lower-level athletes.

I was watching the gymnastics all-around qualifying last night, and they were going nuts over the fact that the 24 best athletes WON'T compete against each other. There is a "2 per country" rule, that will knock out some great competitors from the US, Russia, China, Romania, etc. You might be the 3rd best in the whole world, but also be the 3rd best from your country, and you won't even qualify for the final event.


Plus, all the BS drug-testing, all the BS about people being sent home for off-the-wall commentary. The games are being ruined by the PC-police. I don't care if an athelete is a racist, a convict, or a meth-head, I watch the games to see the best of the best compete at their chosen profession, but that isn't what we get with the Olympics these days. These days we get the same, rigid, politically correct, cliche interview answer, crocodile tears that you see in every other sport. Manufactured drama, tempered joy, tempered disappointment, no passion, no competitiveness.

I don't want to see someone lose and talk about how happy they are that their competitor had a great day, I want to see them kick over some chairs and choke their coach for making them pick a terrible routine, LOL!

Also, as to the Romney comments, and all the criticism of London this Olympics season..... are people forgetting the US had a bomb go off at our Atlanta Olympics? How about the Tonya Harding incident?

Sky news have been making big noises about the empty seats, and important figures saying things like use your seat or loose it, we should make it so if there are empty seats people should be aloud use them, first come first served basis or sold for charity.
But now we see soldiers in these seats, and not all of em are full, what is going on they where desperate to fill these seats BBC olympic coverage have been banging on about how there isnt an empty seat in the house during the swimming

What's the big deal?

Every single Olympics has this same headline and same "outrage".

From the Guardian, circa 2008:
Olympics: Empty seats a concern for Games
(guardian.co.uk)• Olympic organisers use volunteers to bolster attendances
• Sponsors angry at deserted exhibition pavilions


From Beijing 2008:
Seats filled with mystery

Organizers say the Games are sold out, but the stands at many events are half empty. 'Where have all the tickets gone?'


From the Athens 2004 Olympics:
Empty stands, small crowds worry IOC



It's like this for EVERY Olympics. The stands are NEVER full. Face it, the games are boring, the only people who show up for most of the events are the friends and families of the competitors, with a few fans... then the host city fills out the stadiums with plants and soldiers.

Even a tyrannical government like China's couldn't fill out all the empty seats. The games are boring. Most people just want to tune in for the highlights.
