All they had to do is keep their heads down and go out for some celebratory beers in Perth after the game like everyone else and come back whenever they feel like it. No one would have been any the wiser and they would had had a great yarn.
Yep, but this is simply just another example of narcissism trumping common sense, no..?

Also, love the oxymoronic term used in recent media headlines of; 'Caught on social media!' - when it's unlawful to reproduce anyone's image on a public carriage service or platform without their prior knowledge or consent...?

Were talking about this the other day. My mate moved up to Byron when he was 19 (25 years ago, or so)

He was working at a bar up there & on day shift these 2 blokes rocked up with Polo shirts & a clipboard. Introduced themselves as being from Phillip Morris & they were there to take out the smoke machine & replace it with a new one.

Tbey were only partly truthful. They were there to take the cigarette machine, but they weren’t from Phillip Morris.

It was the clipboard that made their story believable.
I worked in a bar in the city in the late-80's that occasionally had A+ list celebs roll up to do "unannounced" gigs. One Friday arvo we had two American blokes supposedly from David Lee Roth's touring entourage drop in to eyeball the place for him to possibly do a set later that night. What gave them credibility was the paperwork and "ID's" they supplied from Paul Dainty or Michael Coppel, or whoever the tour promoter was, as well as the fact that we'd had another massive international artist perform a late-night secret gig about two weeks prior.

Our entertainment manager went for it hook, line and sinker, setting them up with open-ended drink cards, with which the yanks duly set about clocking up a new course record - top shelf, cocktails, bottles of Dom, the works, for themselves and any females that showed them any attention.

I reckon it was over three hours and about $1500 later that our bar manager decided that something was very fishy, in that they hadn't asked to use our phones to make contact with the tour company - this was the days before mobile phones. A quick call to the tour company by our manager revealed they knew nothing about the American blokes, and the DLR had no intention to play anywhere later on after his show at the National Tennis Centre. The jig was up and the now very pissed scoundrels were evicted about 8:30pm by a couple of our bouncers - no cops involved, just a bit of a clip behind the ear for each of them on the way out.

Personally, I thought the blokes were an inspiration.

Did I scare you?

A pandemic is just a disease that is prevalent over a country or the world.

At 4.5 mil (conservatively) deaths, it’s safe to call it deadly.
LOL, no. Nothing about covid scares me TBH. Again the fact that there's that many deaths related to covid confirms my original point. There's no need to call it a "deadly" pandemic unless you feel some need to make it sound "scary" 🤷‍♂️ We all know it can be deadly.

Sneaked in …no repercussions

“But on Wednesday, WA Police acting commissioner Col Blanch said it’s unlikely the duo will face charges.
Blanch said the stunt was “not good” but that it was not in the public interest to charge the duo.

“That’s not something I believe we’re going to progress from a criminal perspective,” he said.

“We don’t want people entering through tight security arrangements, Optus Stadium will be improving their security.

I feel like the fact they started at 5pm should have been a giveaway too, although the 80s with the good blow maybe they really did kick it off hard at the same time as knock off work drinks.
