    God damn it.

    I really wish the club would take that ******* "A-M-T, as-good-as-you'll-see" Basil clip precursor from all the BomberTV videos.

    The guy is a dunce and the call is not noteworthy and it's just become annoying.

    That's annoying, but CHIPPEEEESS is worse. I've taken to starting the video, muting the computer while it loads and plays the ad, look at something else for a bit and then come back and rewind to the start.

    Yep, another ticket question. I'm in the city for the weekend but forgot my member card. What can I do to get into the stadium tomorrow without it?

    You can get the membership number over the phone, use it to buy a ticket online and print that. Then use that to scan in

    Is the membership call centre open over the weekend though? Website doesn't seem to say so.

    I should think so. It's probably the busiest time for them.

    Hopefully it works out for you! I've definitely got my membership number over the phone before, I think they just ask a few questions (name/address) to look you up.

    Go to the members tent outside gate 5 I think it is. They will print you a ticket for entry. That's if you have a reserved seat with your membership.

    Negative. Only one of those 3 game general admission memberships.

    Richmond just pipped us at the end of the season to go to the top for H&A average attendance.

    Still, an incredible effort from our supporters and we had nearly 43k against a small interstate team there yesterday too. Broke the 1 million people mark for the first time ever as well (I think).

    I did a calculation, and Richmond only went ahead due to playing more at the MCG. When we played we filled it to a combined 72% of capacity, they only did 66%.

    Anyone know how many tickets will be available to our members vs Sydney? Sounds we'll have a lot travelling plus the local fans, so I'm getting a bit nervous about missing out.

    I have a mate who isn't a member who wants to come. I have another mate who is a member but not able to go. Can we use his membership card to book tickets?

    This suggests you can buy 4 tickets per club member.

    Reading the Ticketek link, you can buy 4 tickets per membership card. So you should be fine!

    Hey mate.

    In my experience the Essendon section has been Bay 2 I think.
