South Australian footy fans might be rethinking a trip west for the Grand Final after Port Adelaide were annihilated by the Western Bulldogs on Saturday, meaning perhaps more tickets for WA.
The Dogs produced a stunning 71-point victory in the preliminary final at Adelaide Oval, booking their spot against Melbourne for the decider in Perth.
“Those South Australians ain’t coming over that border, not anymore,” Ryan Daniels told Clairsy & Lisa on Monday.
“They’ve checked right out. They’re still sitting at Adelaide Oval with their mouths open going ‘what happened?’”
The first release of Grand Final tickets went on sale on Sunday. Only 1000 were made available, to only the fanciest AFL memberships, such as the Medallion Club.
“Only 750 were given, so 250 go straight to general admission.”
On Monday, Demons members will get their turn, there being about 1500 Dees members in WA, many of which signed up through a loophole we reported last week.
On Tuesday, 1200 WA-based Dogs members will offered their tickets.
Thing is, there’s been some talk about the sharing of eastern states member barcodes which could potentially be used by friends or family over here.
Could this be another loophole?
