My favourite was during the Melbourne final in 2018, everyone going nuts "MCG! MCG!" etc, the old dear in front of me, her phone was set to size 72 font or something ridiculous (and I wear glasses!) so everyone could see it, she was texting about how horribly noisy it was, so she didn't hear her phone ring and also couldn't talk because of the horrible noise and how she hoped everyone would quiet down derpNah not supporter base. Just the seated members.
As Alex's player sponsor for this year, what is the etiquette here? A polite golf clap? Or do I go all "YOU'RE MY BOY, ALEX"?3 months on and we finally hear from our highest profile recruit

Have them in for injuries or things you might normally miss on the sidelines.
I used to like listening to Rex Hunt when attending a neutral game without the Eagles. Didn't mind his commentary.
I think the key point is “see”, as suspect a fair few of these can’t really see the game, but love the ground atmosphere.Is it only oldies who go and watch the game with headphones on, presumably the radio call of the game?
Can't say i've ever seen anyone do this under 55.
