Mad a car trip from north east Vic to the Gabba for the game, just wondering what tickets we buy to make sure we are with other Melbourne supporters???

I'm sitting in a GA area so assume I'll be surrounded by Lions fans....

I guess the best spot would be the cheer squad, but not sure if they would be available?

He's 27 years old and isn't locked in the best 22 even if fit after 7 years. It's a major head scratcher why he's still on the list when he can't even get on the park by now.

Anyhoo I'm hoping we give May another week off to ensure his calf is 100%. Petty, Lever, Tomlinson are more than capable enough without him, and Gawn and others float back to help too. We need May cherry ripe for our assault on the flag later this year.

Not being a lock in a defence that includes May, Lever, Petty, Salem, Rivers and Brayshaw is hardly a reason for delisting.

David Astbury played in 24 games in five years from 2011-2015 and then played in three flags.

He is a cheap list filler, that has versatility and will probably be a lot better than pick 900 in the draft.

I think his ability to play back and forward and his athleticism is what's kept him on the list.

The Demon Army website has some info about tickets but you're probs best placed ordering via Ticketmaster (since the Try Booking link to register interest might not be monitored this late).  Section 211? 213? are cheersquad zones :)

Fact or conjecture??

I understand it to be fact (from someone close enough to it all to trust).

Having said that, he is on the plane so either someone is playing games with me or the club is playing games with Brisbane! We’ll know in about 28 hours.

Tickets we were allocated that remained unused were sent back to the Club this morning. Your best bet would be to call the Club. Good luck with that though.

My DA BFF/ticketing expert is looking to see if there’s any other option for you, Josh. Watch this space. 👍🏽

We’re in Bay 213. There’s GA tickets which allow you to sit wherever but if you get there early as possible you can sit in our Bay. No oppo supporters, understandably. Not sure if there’s still any GA tickets available. I’d say there would be since the NRL match will attract more people. But if there’s no GA available, your last resort is to ring the Club.

This is right DP, all DA-allocated tickets that weren’t booked were returned to the Club this morning. However, if someone does buy a GA ticket and gets there early they’re very welcome to sit in our Bay or the bay next to ours. Strictly Dees fans only, of course.

Please do the right thing and contact Action Jackson asap Walking and let him know about this arrangement.

It's a win win as his 24 hour plus wait will be worthwhile plus he won't just keep the seats in your bay warm.... they'll be red hot by the time the game starts! 👍🏻

Before it's all said and done I'd love to see Joel get a shot up forward. I've still got that 2019 pre season form in my head. 

I have been saying this forever😉 When is the team announced??

His athletic ability would be such a weapon for our team but unfortunately we just barely see it due to injury.

Feel for him and fingers crossed he can get a good run at it.

He is athletic once on the move Dazzle but i watched him closely against the Hawks last season and he was easily beaten to the drop of the ball on most occasions and unable to kill the ball very often aside from the occasional big bombs.

I think some are fooled by his running / athletic capability when he gets some momentum but off the mark he's well behind many forwards with any sort of speed over the first few meters.

I reckon some opps might know this also and would look to exploit this weakness, especially by looking to go through any forward with even a bit of decent burst on the lead.

Thanks for the info mate. We were planning on just rocking up and buying tickets 🤷🏽‍♂️ we have a country family membership but not sure that'll help with a Gabba game. Either way we'll be there

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
