Blimey, that's almost as long as one of my shorter posts.

More informative too.

But seriously, that's what we should be getting. Basic level of professional information.

I went to the mfc website this arvo to buy a ticket for tommorow. No doubt the info is there somewhere, but I couldn't find it and gave up after 5 mins.

Not good enough. 

Struggled to find it on the afl site too but did.

Searched ticketmasters for guaranteed GA admission for members and other tickets, it indicated that no tickets were available.

Must be a sell out.

Looks like it is a pub for me. I guess better than going at 9.30 on a Sunday morning (family day fixture).

Anyone have any ideas about how to get into Ikon for the game?

Given the hot evening, I would assume plenty with tickets won't be turning up. A sell out, with plenty of spaces available.

I hope its not.  I didnt bother upgrading as figured it'd be fine to just turn up and scan in.  Tonights game between the Filth and the Tigers had heaps of empty seats, so surely we wouldn't get a much bigger crowd than that tomorrow.....  right?   😱

I can't believe it. Went to buy my ticket today. They were available.

But I checked with friends if they were coming and was waiting for a reply.

Wasn't stressed. Surely it wouldn't sell out.

Just went to buy them. Sold out!

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    POSTGAME: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.

    MELBOURNE BUSINESS by The Oracle

    In days of old, this week’s Thursday night AFL match up between the Demons and the Blues would be framed on the basis of the need to redress the fact that Carlton “stole” last year’s semi final away from Melbourne and with it, their hopes for the premiership.  A hot gospelling coach might point out to his charges that they were the better team on the night in all facets and that poor kicking for goal and a couple of lapses at the death cost them what was rightfully theirs. Moreover, now was
