Luckily for me South Australians are now able to travel to WA without quarantining,

If we do make the GF the only issue would be potentially travelling with a plane full of Port Adelaide Supporters, basically hell on an aircraft.

 

For information travel from SA would be fine, I got the approval this evening for the Preliminary Final.

That’s right, that’s why my hotel can be cancelled and my flights  changed with no change fee due to COVID-19 restrictions/outbreaks.

I have booked a hotel in Perth to quarantine. Not sure of logistics beyond this, but as a MFC/MCC Premium Member I get a guaranteed GF Ticket. I  intend to use it.....  even if I am stuck in a hotel for one week or even two.  Who is joining me?

I don't think their premier is letting anyone in. Can't even have Neitz or Barassi just incase to present the cup.

I'm a WA member without a Grand final guarantee ticket, though I did enquire it earlier in the year.

I'm betting on the normal percentage allocation for supporters will be in far excess of all WA demon members and I should get my tickets with the family. My tigers mate got tickets to the Tigers v GWS GF by also being a GWS member as it was so cheap. They couldn't fill their quota.

Just bought flights to Perth from Cairns. Then found out Qld is still on WA's naughty Covid list, despite the distance of no-case Cairns to Southeast Queensland being about the same as Norway to Portugal. Back to Darwin for a couple weeks, I think.

Just saw on the news that since “it’s harder to get a GF ticket than a ticket to Willy Wonka’s” some astute Western Australians have found a loophole. They can purchase an MFC membership with a GFG! Apparently 300 of these memberships have been bought today.

Was pretty sure memberships aren't on sale anymore. You sure this wasn't a sangroper pulling your leg? (via the news)

"IF" we make it to the GF in Perth, it's going to be super-important that one way or another we can get as many Demons fans at the ground on the day.

Say we're playing Port and the SA/WA border is open, just imagine how many Port fans will flood into WA and overwhelm our supporters.

Not to our advantage but then again, it could make the premiership even sweeter.

Nah, legit news item. The reporter spoke to a guy who’d just bought one.

Besides, aren’t memberships always available for purchase?

Posted this on another thread, maybe better suited here. Maybe there’s a chance for some of us to get there for the prelim mb. I hope I heard right on the news earlier when they said as of Monday Victorians can enter WA as long as they’ve had one shot of the vaccine. Didn’t hear any other details though.

That is incorrect Lord, i called up yesterday and the GF Guarantees and Interstate memberships priority 2 are being bought up big style by people in WA.

Wouldn't suprise me if Port supports are exploiting this too.

The only thing standing in Port supporters way is the $1200 (currently) airplane tickets plus.

There is a loop hole for sure. I've never tried driving from Adel to Perth but i have heard its a long 3 day process.

Hmmm methinks it is wise for me to not watch the news while doing a crossword, chatting on the phone and all the while not even in the same room as the TV

And have to quarantine for two weeks, of course. And on the news they said also a permit is required. This is probs all moot now since today we (Vic) were raised to high risk status by WA so it’ll probably be even harder.

Thanks. Damn..thought some were a sneaky chance of heading over for next week as I didn’t hear anything about still requiring to quarantine. Oh well…back on the couch.

To answer the question in the OP I'm pretty sure Pert already answered this (or a members email) saying the GF guarantee tickets are strictly non-transferable meaning you cannot buy one and pass it on. Of course there are probably ways around this but I assume the main reason is to stop scalping (what's to stop members buying a ticket and then selling it at an exorbitant price and then claiming they gave it to a "friend"?)

The plus side is if you are a member and can attend in WA you should be able to get a ticket as the majority of MFC members would live in Melbourne and so we would be unlikely to fill the quota of MFC member allotments for the GF in Perth.

I confirmed in writing as did Brownie they are not transferable. You can get a refund for the GFG portion

Have the GFG but flights from Hobart to Perth are currently $1600 return. Could fly to Adelaide for $300 return then road trip. What an adventure that would be.

    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
