25 km travel limit

Won’t stop you going up. Theoretically, as long as you’re not travelling more than 25km to get to Melbourne airport. Once you arrive in Sydney, NSW law obviously applies. They have a notice up on their government website as posted, which says you have to stay at a place of residence apart from a reasonable excuse, so mirroring the five reasons for leaving home that Victoria has at the moment. Come Friday, you can leave home for any reason, you just theoretically can’t travel more than 25km in Victoria! So on that basis there should be no issue with going, and they will probably withdraw their notice (which they currently update daily). If they really didn’t want Victorians going up at all they’d close the borders. Gladys is the only premier that’s taken a bit of common sense with this all.

Mmmm, a vulnerable post. My father died of MND 5 years ago last Thursday, just as I became a father (and he had his first grandchild), and had a relationship with Neale, through Daniher's Drive .

We got tickets too! My special lady friend and I making the trek up the highway from CBR for the game...my first Big Freeze. Kids (and dogs) will be left at home....fully expect a disaster zone o

Got my tickets! Rpfc is off to the SCG with little bub in tow… let’s call him rpjfc… Wife coming too.   Go Dees!

How is travelling more than 25km in a plane any different to travelling more than 25km in a car ?

Love your creative thinking but I think you'd better get back to the drawing board

While I get back to the ‘drawing board’ you might want to read the constitution champ!

Why are all the airlines still allowed to fly? Are they flying with empty planes for the sake of it?

From the NSW Health Website FYI

 

Stay at home rules

If you are in NSW and you have been in Victoria on or after 4pm Thursday 27 May 2021 you will need to follow stay-at-home rules. This includes travellers from anywhere in Victoria (both Greater Melbourne and regional Victoria).

If you have arrived after 4pm on Thursday 27 May 2021, you must stay at your residence until 14 days have passed since you were last in Victoria, or until advised otherwise by NSW Health, unless you have a reasonable excuse to leave, such as

  • obtaining food and services
  • travelling for the purposes of work or education if you cannot work or study at home
  • medical care or
  • exercising outdoors.

Yeah seriously people thinking we can go to NSW but we can’t go further than 25km in Melbourne. Keep dreaming.

The footy one.

The one that says players have tbe right to bare arms.

That's a big development.

But how can someone from an outer Melbourne suburb justify breaching the 25 k limit by (driving to Tullamarine) to fly up to Sydney for a football game. 

Unless there are special loopholes and exemptions that Melbournians can apply for to travel to the game, I wouldn't risk it.

Sounds like a 50% crowd may be allowed for the Dons V Dees games in round 15 so it might be best to wait for that.

On a technicality basis I guess you are right if you live more than 25km from the airport. I’m not sure that’s the intention of the rule which is to prevent people going to country Victoria, so the odds of having issues would be remote, but I see your point. The government is getting enough negative press from these OTT rules that I can’t see them wanting to be knit picking with things like this. If the airport is within 25km there are no issues whatsoever.

Fair call. And if you're a Melbournian that travels up and back for the game without incident, then best of luck to you. 

But I'll go with the "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is" theory. Feel like we're on a very tight leash until Thursday.

Me too seat 5

Were you involved with the Sydney supporter group? I'm sure we met on that great day when Brad Miller played the game of his life against BBB Hall and Cameron the Bruce snapped the winning goal!

defuture15… did you get allocated new seats? I got a seat relocation email from Ticketek saying the seats I was originally given are no longer available; we’re now in Bay 15 in the Victor Trumper Concourse in row CC.

Although you can't drive to NSW you can fly

Same day return flights about $270 all up via Webjet

Just checked Jetstar and you'd be looking at around $230 for a same day return, coming back on their latest flight at 7.20pm.

Listening to people on this thread working out how to play the rules on movement restrictions makes me glad that myself, my wife and in particular the aged care home she works at are all fully vaccinated. Presumably the seating at the SCG is going to be in the same blocks method as they used at Giants Stadium so it'll be shoulder-to-shoulder.

On a brighter note, I've been thrilled to see the Freeze MND beanies around Sydney this week. I wasn't even sure they'd were actually selling them at Coles/Bunnings and so forth but I got mine the other day and quickly had a few people ask if I could pick up some more for them. By the time I got back to the local shops this morning I was buying all but the last one in the display.

I'm sharing the news because I'm sure a few people will be relieved to know that this event is getting some traction up here and the MND effort isn't facing as much of a failed event as we might have feared.

Plus, the #positivelingers t-shirt sales have gone through the roof, which helps.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
