yep we are but still need to ballot for some reason, probably something to do with having access to 3121 only every 2nd game on average
actually that makes sense. They wanna make sure all of the seats are filled (which has been an issue for years)

I’ve entered in the ballot but miss being seated in the Premiership Circle area behind thePunt Road end , with seats being filled we are pushed over on to Lvl 2 City End.

The only good thing was that there were some players sitting in the area, Jake King and entourage made an appearance, and good ole Roach.

Just got R3 ballot email, have registered, wait and see now.
Got my email around 11.45am. You'd think if all reserved seat members could get a ticket for the Scumton game we should be okay for the Swans.

welp.
Damn, I didn’t even try. In the gate, left turn and up the stairs.
Lesson learnt for the next game! If any security questions just say you're waiting for someone who's getting food/using the bathroom. Not that they did last night. All felt pretty relaxed.

We (3 of us) normally sit Bay 51, ground level but undercover in Olympic Stand (I think) - Punt Road End half forward flank close to border of Members Area. We had seats last night in M10 similar position as in undercover but ground level - good for viewing ( as are our normal Reserved Seats). All was fine until game time when a loud, obnoxious, boring Richmond fan sat down in row behind us with 2 of his mates. Just yelled inane dribble for first 2 quarters until Mrs T44 politely asked him to tone it down. In the spirit of an adult acting like a 15 year old he then spent the rest of the game yelling at everyone to be quiet so we weren't upset. Absolute embarrassment to our club. Nothing we could do but sit there and bear it. Would have loved to move seats but not sure how that works with the protocols etc. At the end of the game he then had the temerity to yell at us as we had ruined his night! (not to mention the fact that he did his best to ruin our night from the start). Guess all teams have them but not a proud moment for our proud club.

Just on the seating and things being “ COVID safe”. What a joke!!!!
Sat with family at the end of a row. The middle part of the row was empty and the other end occupied. All good so far. Then people rocked up and sat directly behind us. Middle part of that row empty. People sat in the row directly in front of us. Middle part of that row empty. We saw others turn up in front of us, look at their ticket to make sure they had the right seats and weren’t impressed. They had To sit right next to, as in the next seat, someone they had no idea who they were. Saw the same thing happen in the row in front of that. Those people actually went to one of the attendants to express their disappointment , politely, and asked if it was ok to sit elsewhere in the row ( the vacant middle part) only to be told they couldn’t because of the COVID protocols in place. They were incredulous, as were we. All the while on the big screen they were showing ads to be COVID safe and keep 1.5 metres distant from each other o_O:mad:

I saw that, too. I was stuck up in the Gods, so I had a good view of all the seating around the ground. Everywhere, in all the bays, people had been congregated around the aisles, with huge stretches of seats in the middle empty. I was right next to a stranger - though there were lots of free seats beyond his friends group, so it would have been easy to put a free seat between us.

That's strange. Where me and my daughter were sitting there was a seat empty between any group of people.

Didn't see too many in the standing room but I got the clear impression that there would not have been an issue, they weren't hassling anyone who was watching from standing room.

Weird thing is marvel games the crowd was all spread out properly , perhaps it’s an issue with ticketek though I don’t see how.
luckily The Carlton supporter in the seat next to me moved at qtr time and I had empty seats on either side. Good times
