Mate, you'd reckon there's a significant likelihood GF parties could set us all the way back to July/August. If he said we could have mates over it would be a free-for-all. We can't risk it. Just unlucky timing. Plenty of people will flout it, I reckon. Let's see if we get a post-GF spike.
Dunno Spook. Numbers are pretty good. One week later we will be able to have 2 people visit our homes. What difference does a week make? Just bring it forward a week; makes little sense. I get that there are *smile* aresholes out there who will flout it. But they will also be flouting it from November 1 so again what’s the difference?

Like the spike that came about from the BLM protests?

Our numbers are as low as they were in May yet we have masks and many more restrictions than then. Importantly though we no longer have international flights, hotel quarantine fuckfests, or paper and pen contact tracing.

Another week would make it two weeks of near-zero numbers? And two weeks is the transmission period? I dunno, but it must have been tempting for Dan to say get on the beers and enjoy a sugar-hit surge in popularity. That he didn't tells me something.

BLM was outdoors, socially-distanced, with masks. GF parties would be at least partly indoors, with people yelling, screaming, drinking, high-fiving, hugging, etc. Yes, international flights and hotel quarantine fuckfests were responsible for the spread, but so were dinner parties and large family gatherings.

I'm not happy about it. My brother will have his kids so I'll probably have to watch it alone. But we are so close. I'll pay that price if it means not increasing by even a fraction of a percent the chance my 80-year-old Dad will get covid.

Gold Coast (SE - QLD).
It hurts a bit that we should be playing for a four peat on Saturday.
I guess it’s the curse of finishing top and we should have dropped down the ladder a bit

So who presents the Cup for us? Queensland based so I reckon Luke McGun would be fitting. Recent past great of the club. Up there with Richo in what he brought to the club.

All around the world people are still dying. This is the very definition of a first world problem. Suck it up, enjoy the grand final and our thirteenth flag (hopefully).

I’m shattered I can’t go and watch the game with my brother! Don’t want a big party just someone to go ape s$;t at the tv with. Meanwhile those out in regional Geelong can do as they please.

Pretty sure Luke McGuane is back in Melbourne, living rent free, the only QLD AFL identity is Warwick Capper, given the weirdness that has been the 2020 season, who better to present the cup & the Norm Smith.

Last time we played them the game was talked up as being the best game for year but got labeled the worst game after we completely dominated everywhere expect on the scoreboard. Twice as many scoring shots.
We finished Geelong’s dominate 6 game winning streak.
We lost Lynch and Soldo in the match.
Rioli and Castanga were solid. Jack kicked 4.
We’ll be coming into this Grand Final stronger and our game plan has changed since then.

So it’s official. We can’t have even a couple of mates over to watch the GF.

*smile* off Andrews!!!
This has got nothing to do with politics, so please don’t shoot me down. But he is a right royal *smile*

2017 I spent the week leading up to the granny in barely contained excitement.

2019 was an odd feeling of calm and serenity.

I don't know why, but I have this cold dread this year. I don't understand it and don't like it.
I have the dread too. Geelong playing well their last two games. Being with them at half-time will be key

Hi everyone.
I have good news.
I don't spend much on my membership.
Regular International level. 3 home games a scarf and Watch AFL.
I lived O/S for a long time. Watch AFL was my entire life through this era.
Moved to QLD early 2018, and was no chance to go to 2019 GF.
I kept rolling over my Int. Membership mainly cos I'm lazy and didn't want to spend more.
I have just recieved my Priority 2 barcode.
I can't believe it, only Powerball could be better.
Go Tiges see you all Sat night at Gabba for THIIIIIRRRRTEEEEENNNN!

If there's any silver lining to being unable to collect my guaranteed GF ticket this year, it's that other members who would never have got the opportunity do now.

Fingers crossed the boys give you what they gave me last year.
