Can anyone recall a Grand Final where it was twenty-seven degrees?

2015 Hawks V Eagles. Pretty sure it was at least 28 that day.

Edit - was confirmed to have been the hottest ever GF. Peaked at over 31.

so sad, literally crying into my scotch

Pies fans erupt over AFL Grand Final ticket ‘disgrace’ as ‘guaranteed’ seats go begging

still, doesn't say much about a gfg ... someone is cleaning up

Wait - this is important as our club does this too. Is this a case of GFG holder not getting a guaranteed ticket? That goes against the very product Does it not? I have had one since 2020 and although I was able to get a ticket in my basket in 21, didn’t buy it as I’m in NSW (just wanted to say I had a ticket , for 5 mins😂) I’d want to be sure of getting one

Edit: saw post on previous page. Standing room for 1k wtaf?

 

you either get a GFg or not - misleading if not and then ACCC might be interested if not

I love GF day - a semi religious experience which is planned, and follows the same routine each year.

Sleep in (rare these days), slow coffee and toast, then wonder whether I can be bothered watching any of the AFL breakfasts (I can't be bothered. I never watch them any more, because the new professional feel of them robs them of a great earthy quality the old North Melbourne ones used to have.)

At 11am, gather my massive amount of snacks, drinks (usually Harcourt cider, the best cider in the world)  and laptop, and begin watching all the unnecessary and repetitive rubbish. I have pies and chips for lunch.

The rest of my household are disinterested so I get to watch in in isolation, which I like. In 2021, all the family watched it together.

Will be barracking VERY strongly for the Lions. The filth winning is not an option.

 

Good call on the cider. As a Macedon Ranges boy (used to play pennant golf in your neck of the woods) I would dearly love to be able to get Holgate and Harcourt here in the Northern Rivers. Mercury cider a fair swap

Would you be happy with standing room because that appears to be what some were offered

If it was clearly disclosed (and highlighted - probably in the product name) and I was a fully informed buyer then yes 

 

just saw your other post - ACCC should investigate

 

imagine if the CFC got fined for misleading conduct for this. Omg , hilarious (I do feel sorry for the fans though, rip offs aren’t cool )

there was the mfc vs dorks gf where michael tuck opted for a short sleeved guernsey for the first time

Yes, a very hot day. But the next day the temperature reached 37 C!  I remember it very well - it was my wedding day. Got married on a Sunday so everyone could enjoy the big game, and but for Buckenara’s goal after the siren could have been an even bigger game.

They just said on 7 news (WA) that those that selected standing room as an option missed out completely, obviously some algorithms just discarded their ticket (even GFG) for selecting it.  So much for covering all bases for a ticket.  One member was companying it wouldn't debit her card despite there being lots of money on it.  It's a good thing they use such as reliable organisation to manage tickets. Looks like 17,000 allocated  tickets per club.

I have to pretend to barrack for them as my Mother-in-law goes for them, she kindly goes for Melbourne when Pies aren't playing, but still, I can't genuinely do it. If any consolation, succesfully converted my wife to Dees years ago, could of argued a deal breaker if not 🤣 Anyway, go Lions 🤣😂

My wife, youngest son and entire in laws are pies

mrs super has said if we ( me and the eldest who’s a dee) can’t support the pies we have to leave the house for the day. We’ve had a serious talk about how angry I am about Maynard and how he should not be playing but I see her point. She was very supportive in 21 and i have a lot of very special premiers memorabilia she got me for Xmas, birthday and Father’s Day (including premiers jerseys with gold embossed afl logo and personalised premiership footy with family name)

I think - no matter how much I hate them - for Mrs super , our youngest seeing a premiership (including for pendles ) and matrimonial harmony - I can deal. Just a game. Just a game. Just a game

It seems the ticketing debacle is the fault of the CFC. It's being reported that cat 1 members with a gfg were guaranteed a ticket. But that ticket could be any category, including standing room. Some of those members were allocated standing room but had opted out of this option by ticking a box. Therefore they lost their ticket.

According to Ticketek this is because CFC instructed them to prioritise all members equally. Meaning GFG members were guaranteed a ticket, but not one of a paticilar level. This is also why some cat 3 members got great seats while some cat 1 got nose bleeds. 

In contrast Brisbane instructed ticketek to offer level 1-4 seats to their cat 1 members,4-5 for their cat 2 members and anything left for their cat 3 members

What is uncleat is how many GFGs CFC have sold.

Understand,,,, but the issue is are clubs selling expensive GF guarantee memberships that only entitle a holder to standing room.

Is it just Collingwood or are other clubs doing it?

MFC have never had a GF where the guarantee applies for example

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res
