    Yeah, I can't abide the stock music tracks used in the videos... they add nothing and diminish the experience if anything.

    Yeah need $30 for a round of 3 for my crew. Kinda glad I am off the booze at the moment.

    Yeah food and drink is an overpriced, uninspiring disaster. I am glad they don't stop you bringing your own things in, and Coles at the Gabba certainly gets a pre-game workout.

    I don't think DanT7 was talking about giving away the tickets. I think he was referring to changing the product mix. You can sell 10,000 tickets at $35. That's $350,000. If you sell tickets at $20, would you get 17,500 attendees and make the same money? Probably not, but for a team like the Lions, there's also a consideration of potential future income. Getting 15,000 along at $20 may be preferable to getting 10,000 at $35, despite cash leakage.

    I don't think you'd see that kind of growth with cheaper prices though, simply because Brisbanites don't care as much about the AFL, but I know it's been a major factor for me - both in uni student days, when I couldn't justify $30 for a ticket, and also in recent years, where I could convince a bunch of non-AFL fan mates to come along for $20, but not for $35-50/head. I've seen other offers from other sports on rare occasions (must be sporadic), but I've seen offers for $10 tickets to soccer and the like, and managed to get along a bunch of guys.

    Ah economics... Very useful for making astrology looking well thought out.

    Mate, are you bloody serious?

    This information is extremely confidential from a psychologist's perspective. Forget about the content, even the very fact that a player may be seeing the sports psych (regardless of the type of psych that they are) is so deeply confidential.

    More than happy for beer to be overpriced if it reduces the amount of drunken idiots at the game.

    Are you sure? https://membership.lions.com.au/september-member. It doesn't work for 2 or 3 of the big games (typically Collingwood/Carlton/Richmond/Essendon games), but I've certainly used this, including this season.

    That is so weird. I asked about it to one of the membership team and they advised I could only purchase tickets. Very strange as I'm on the second highest tier membership. Maybe the membership team person I spoke to didn't realize? Who knows.

    The email I received about it (6 Feb) said:
    I've often redeemed them by calling the club (get more control over where they are when I talk to a human). When I've used them in the past there has been a deadline for ordering them of the Wednesday before the game.

    If you're relying on alcohol (or another substance) or the Lions playing well to make yourself happy then you have bigger issues than the beer prices at the gabba.

    As an aside to this, I have a premium membership and was advised last year I could only have one, but this year I can have 2 again.

    I don't know if this has changed around a bit in recent years?

    Reaching for drugs as the answer is actually the problem.

    It's a bit dependent on the context though isn't it? I mean it's widely known that Collingwood hired a sports psychologist specifically to try and sort out Cloke's goal kicking yips.

    Probably because they mentioned that though ... as opposed to someone requesting the information?
