[quote="Dale61"] Public transport here in Sleepy Hollow is shit awful at the best of times, so I won't be going to the game. It makes for a long day when going in by train, and if I miss the one straight after the game, the next one isn't until after midnight (apparently). I have no intentions of changing trains on the way, so a stop-over in Werribee is out of the question. For me, going to the GF is not a viable option.[/quote]Fairweather supporter!!!! Excuses, excuses, excuses!!! If your side is in the Grand Final what does it matter if you have a "long day"? The returns trains are at: 10.05pm 11.05pm 12.05am 1.05am See you there. :lol:

Sleepy Hollow has shitful public transport within Sleepy Hollow but the trip to Melbourne is an hour or thereabouts, $8.80 Return Concession. Just to pump things up - Disconnect Dome at the Darklands is closer than TEAC Oval for train travellers. There you go tragics I found an upside out of TD, although I must admit it was extremly difficult. [b]I'm interested to know how many VFL supporters will be 'doin the double' of both TAC and VFL games or will most just rock up at 7 for the VFL. [/b]

[quote="Dale61"]As much as I would like to go, I have far more important things to spend 25% of my fortnightly pension on (I'm approximating the cost for the day - travel, ticket, food & drink - would be about $100).[/quote] $75 food and drink, nah.

[quote="Dale61"] (I'm approximating the cost for the day - travel, ticket, food & drink - would be about $100).[/quote]$15 entry (assume you are an adult with the printed off discount coupon) and $7.50 for a train return for a concession holder. Pie and a 600ml coke for $8 and you've spent just over $30. Or lash out on a few beers and you're up to $50. INEXPENSIVE!

Although not prevalent in VFL circles, it's bloody brilliant. [b]Here's the itinerary:[/b] Train Ticket $10, Game Ticket $15, Packet of chips $4, Packet of biscuits, Cut-Lunch max $12. Enter through the car park carrying up to 12 cans of whatever tickles your fancy ($30), enter the ground - do the old 2 for 1 a the 'Bar' ($5) and you've now got yourself 2 legal plastic cups in which to pour the contents of your smuggled cans - to be down out of sight underneath the seat. And maybe give the plastic cup a wash first. SIREN - we're away - what a night! All for the bargain basement price of up to $75. [quote:a827ee9a9f="PMJohnno"]Oh and Dan, I'll be at both.. Wouldn't miss the Double header[/quote] Good to see, hopefully Oakleigh make it as well for the Port fans. I'll be there for both for sure. That poses another question [b]if Oakleigh made the TAC GF would the Port supporters get along?[/b]
