Who pays to watch umpires?

Daryl Harper's website is always one of those sites you stumble across accidently from time to time.

Daryl's last entry is the day before the World Cup Final. Writing about the two men in white and the third umpire that day, he left it until the last line to perform this ironic gem:

"As umpires we know that the focus will correctly be on the players as I know of no person who pays to enter the ground to watch the umpires perform."
