They sold out the 6.8 million tickets? How come the stands are empty and they need cheerleaders to come in and try to fill them? I guess the Communist brain believed that it is enough to indulge in propaganda and everyone would accept whatever was told to them.

Not enough 'cheerleaders' to fill all the empty seats

Chinese organizers have boasted for months that all 6.8 million tickets had been sold for the Games. You wouldn't know it with all the empty seats at the venues and the disappointing crowds at the Olympic Grounds.
Wang Wei, spokesman for the Beijing committee, said organizers were encouraging more people to come and admitted at some venues that empty seats were being filled by volunteers in yellow shirts serving as official cheerleaders.
