Swannies at the SCG ..... you can't buy a ticket ... will be a biggie. :D

Couple of goal crowd boost generally on big games.
Can't buy a plane ticket to SYD for the match either! :lol:

It took a beating in the final 30 seconds -- that last foray getting toed thru for a goal was a VERY real possibility it looked like. :lol:

The bookies very kindly were offering 14 to 1 on the Swannies.

So I just took out a small bet on The Cats to cover that $75 outlay - just in case. :lol:

I received an urgent email today & it read:

"Hey lads

A good mate of mine has 2 fully paid tickets for the AFL Grand Final in a private box with all food & refreshments included.

Unfortunately he didn't realise when he bought them that it is on the same day as his wedding, so he can't go.

If you are and want to go instead of him, it is at 2pm at St.Paul's Cathedral in East Melbourne and her name is Julie.

Only Collingwood fans do that sort of thing surely? :lol:

My postmaster - also a keen Swans fan told me today a friend paid about $5000 for 2 x return airline tickets for the final. :roll:

(SYD-MEL-SYD is generally accepted as the heaviest flown city pair on the globe for some odd reason.)

There are now ZERO buyable tickets SYD-MEL before 4pm on Saturday, (and only 2 sets even on that one and nothing else all day!) and flights back Sunday afternoon are $1,530 for 2 -

Glen

Those airline prices make driving to Melbourne for the game the cheap alternative. Your only problem is, if you are still in Sydney, you would have to leave about now.

Are you going to the game? :D

Not at $5,000 for the air tickets! Indeed you cannot buy any on Virgin at any price.

I've already held the 2022 AFL Premiership Cup earlier this year, so that will suffice! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Maybe you or Catweazle or some locals are attending?

I am a MCC member so I can go but I am still concerned about Covid particularly sitting in the one spot all day.

I will stay at home & watch, with the GLW, on the TV. Good luck to the Swannies. :D

For any optimist that feels the game start might be delayed by a few hours, there are now 4 tickets all day buyable on Virgin SYD-MEL -

Comparatively cheap!

For anyone keen on 2023, book your airfares a year out and if your team doesn't make it to the GF then at least you'll have a fun weekend down here in Melbourne.

Would have been fun to go, being a local(-ish) but don't have tickets to the game.

We're Collingwood supporters and bummed that we missed out on the big match by only one point! Maybe it'll be Collingwood and the Swans next year. That'd be a good match!

Grand Final :

Geelong 20.13.133 defeated Sydney 8.4.52 in front of a crowd of 100,024, the largest attendance since 1986.

Geelong win their 10th VFL/AFL premiership, their first since 2011.

The win was Geelong's 16th consecutive win to finish the season.

Stampboards sadly departed member Norm Poyser (fromdownunder) would have loved the result.

He was the ultimate Cats fan.

Out of interest, checked last year's Grand Final score - also a white wash, and neither were here this year. :lol:

MELBOURNE - 21.14 - (140)
WESTERN BULLDOGS - 10.6 - (66)
