And if you need to stay back late on a Friday you’re either a s**t worker or have a s**t job. Leave on the dot and you would make the game. Depending on your job you could also start early finish early....
Yep, I work on the peninsula which is almost as far away as Geelong.
Boss is happy for me to leave at 4.30 which is an hour early, decent bloke for a Blue Bagger, but even if he didn't a 7.50 start is easily doable.

Yeah but I'm not sure there are too many people that are leaving work at lunchtime...maybe Baker's Delight employees?

All I'm saying, is that there should be more trains put on from Geelong, during major events in Melbourne. I.e. every 10 minutes instead of 20, from 5pm onwards. Why is this such a divisive statement? Surely no-one reasonable would disagree with that assertion? Then, if that can't be met, why not just have the game on a Saturday night, which would increase ability for fans to be able to attend (Richmond fans living in Geelong included).

This isn't a sook, it's just logistics. As I've said, I don't have a problem with where, it's more the when, because of the lack of transport to accomodate the masses. This coupled with the AFL's attitude towards revenue/lack of care about the fans (not having it on a Saturday when more fans from Geelong can attend) despite arguing that the locking out of fans is the reason that they can't have the games in Geelong, is my main issue.

Just have the game on a f*cking Saturday, it's not that hard! Then you could hate on us for other things, but at least we'd be at the game for you to do it in person, rather than sh*t-posting online!
I agree.
I would also like McHarry's to put on extra buses so that people from BH/OG don't have to rush to catch 4.30pm when the earlier one is something stupid like 1.30pm.
Spot on. And people from Apollo Bay or Lorne, good luck, haha. It'd just be better for all if it was on a Saturday
Nah we have earned the right as the top ranked side to have the first final and as a result the extra days break before the GF.
Also Friday works much better for me.
We could always play it at queenscliff oval would tha help?

If you own a car, horse and buggy makes it a bit harder

Chris Scott joining in the banter
Chris Scott really needs to learn to shut his mouth. You'd think other supporters hate his antics the most, but no-one hates it more than us. You guys were better last year, to be fair, but it doesn't mean you're not good this year, lol.

So odd when he does sh*t like this

It IS really weird.

Wk 1... complain publicly about home ground finals, drops recognised ruckman against AA ruckman
Wk 2... (help me out here)
Wk 3... state opposition not that good

He just provides ammunition.
