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.

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.

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.

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.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
