I emailed him this morning and received a phone call and some emails from the club. I can only assume the club is getting a lot of feedback on this. He needs to make some noise about this and I am confident he will. Disgraceful effort by the AFL and Geelong - we all know this will be a sub 50K crowd and we're stuck in the rafters on Q level.Today MCG putting away home and away and replacement games hawks supporters as far away from the action as you can get
or you can ‘upgrade’ to level 2 a for about 60 bucks
We will not forget this. What’s the end game Jeff Kennett? How about whinging for us for a change?
Yeh I look at the other way. Considering the 6.5 billion dollar deficit Victoria has and approx 17,000 leaving last quarter I think crowds a pretty good.I think you are imagining a scenario to avoid the reality.
People are not going because they cannot afford it
To be honest, I'm not that fussed about ending up in the back of Level 4. It's Geelong's home game so that's fair enough that we get the crappier seats. What I (and many others) object to, is that is a nominated replacement game for Hawthorn members (and in my case, I get an 18 game membership anyway), so we normally would just rock up and claim a seat.Awful reading how Hawks members have been treated today. After how Victorian club members stuck by their teams for all of last year giving good $$$ for nothing but a sense of club loyalty, its disgusting how they've shafted members today. Especially with the ticketing system for 2021 giving them an easy opportunity to reward members with great seats.
Luckily I've had no problem redeeming Level 2 seats for Collingwood games (so far one MCG home, one MCG away and now one Marvel home). But in solidarity with follow footy fans I'm appalled on behalf of loyal Hawks members being forced to the back of Level 4 in order to redeem their free seat.
Yes but it is a Geelong home game. So an AFL or Geelong policy.So a mate of mine reckons he just got an email noting more free club member tickets will be made available at 1.00pm. After forcing members to buy tickets for seats, they've already paid for.
You couldn't make it up.
And with 41K last week they only had 41% of food bars open. So you have to queue close up with people. Ridiculous.The 75% capacity plan is nonsense anyhow. I thought it would be like the workplace/cafe etc where you have a certain amount of space between you (or your group) and strangers. Instead they just squeeze you in next to people you don't know whilst other bays are completely empty. Work that one out. Might as well have it 100% capacity.
How can we relax when we can’t even sit in our own reserved seats. How can we relax when we have to go online and struggle to find a decent seat for every home game.Start freaking out if crowds are still down once all this covid sh*t is behind us. Until then ...relax
or when you think you have seats in your normal reserved area only to get to the check out and find out you are on the opposite side of the ground?How can we relax when we can’t even sit in our own reserved seats. How can we relax when we have to go online and struggle to find a decent seat for every home game.
Restrict it to 75% by just closing 25% of the ground off instead of allowing people to space out. All designed to save them money rather than thinking about what the crowd would preferI found it stupid on Monday they had L4 of the Ponsford stand shut. Everyone was huddled up top of the Great Southern
My understanding without yet going through it is the ticketing system is a nightmare in Vic.Victoria has had a harder hit regarding lockdowns, so I expect there will be more regular people there who needed to find another use for the money for their AFL seated memberships - especially with jobkeeper winding up.
It would be unreasonable to think they could turn off for such a time without there being a human cost and the luxury of going to the game might just be the symptom of it.
