This has always stuck me as odd. If you recall in The Goblet of Fire, the Weasleys pick up Harry for the Quidditch world cup. This is a huge deal for the Weasleys, who were not only were able to get tickets to the event, but only tickets for guests and also they're the best tickets in the entire stadium in the top box! For me, this is one big red flag. Okay, so we know that the tickets come from a gift from Ludo Bagman who is returning a favor to Mr. Weasley because he got his brother out of a weird situation with a lawnmower. I'm sorry, but I just don't think so. I mean, 10 tickets, to the top box! The idea that Ludo, is giving away 10 of the best tickets, in the entire stadium is kind of laughable! Especially when you consider that Ludo is in huge debt when he does this. When peacock man and Draco arrive at the top box they even joke:
"Good lord, Arthur," he said softly. "What did you have to sell to get seats in the Top Box? Surely your house wouldn't have fetched this much?"
Even though he is being kind of antagonistic here, he is also quite correct. I'm sorry but I need to know because this is important, what was that lawnmower even doing!? Why is it that when Ludo is desperate for money, he gives away a small fortune? It just doesn't feel right!
