I'm going to be in Melbourne for the GF, how much do people think tickets will be going for (if there's even going to be any available)?
Depends on how the GWS ticket ballot goes. I think the club allocation is 36,000 for each side, but GWS only have 24,000 members (if memory serves, could be very wrong) so I wonder what happens to the remaining 12,000

The Collingwood board seem to be taking yesterday quite well. Those who are calling out what a waste of a season it was are getting a few dislikes but nothing more. No major melts or civil war. Their bigfooty supporters do not reflect their stereotypical supporter image at all.

Well they have the advantage of knowing their window is wide open unlike another team who lost on the weekend....

I was shocked with how diplomatic, gracious and respectful the (majority) of Collingwood supporters were at the MCG after last years Grand Final. Had several of them walk up to us in the streets not 5 minutes from the MCG and shake our hands and congratulate us. Saying things like "well deserved", "You guys were the better team" etc.

I don't know when Collingwood stopped being evil (don't get me wrong, i still despise Eddie with every fiber of my being), but give me a Pies victory over a Richmond victory any day. Richmond supporters are the biggest flogs going around by far. Must be all those incessant years of mediocrity they're desperately making up for.

The Facebook supporters though (yes I know, lol FB) definitely reflect the stereotype. Salty as f***. I massively respect most of the Collingwood BF posters.

Thinking of '99' style gf. Carlton with massive upset to get in and margin bout 30pts for whole game and very forgettable
I think GWS is going to go all the way. They have taken a lot of flak over the years about their style and place in the league.

No better way to prove the naysayers wrong and announce their arrival on the big stage than taking out big bad tigers in a grand finals in front of the tigers home crowd.

Think WC 92 or the crows in 97.

Dicko by name Dickhead by nature predicting a Richmond three peat of G/F Wins ..
Saw that from Dixon.

I think he forgot that Richmond didn't win the premiership last year and was about say that 2019 will be their three-peat before realising his error and then came up the the farce of three in a row before even one has been won.

Each team gets 14-16k tickets, so around 30k in total between two. GWS is unlikely to sell more than 8-10k (based on home ground attendances) so I am not sure what happens to the others. I suspect they might give them to Richmond members for first dibs (that would be the fairest way)

It's 36,000 total for the two clubs, not each.

Another reason not to want Richmond to win is that in the future our flag will be forgotten amid the conventional wisdom of Richmond being the undisputed best team 2017-19.

All the pressure is on Richmond, nobody thought GWS would make it so far. As far as I'm concerned, GWS have a free shot at the flag with nothing to lose.

Looking forward to this, should be a good game for the neutrals. Hopefully the Giants throw the kitchen sink at the Tigers.
