Geelong game this week...
Just a note for any Hawk fans planning to make the trip down the Hwy on Saturday for the match against Geelong. It is a curtain raiser to the Geelong AFL match and our game begins at 10.30am. Supporters will be admitted at VFL rates until 10.45am - after that it's full on AFL prices. As for seating etc , Geelong haven't been able to give a definate answer as to where you can sit/cant sit so I guess you'll just have to negotiate that with officials on the day. Hopefully this will be one of the last attempts at this hybrid version of footy timetabling. I've reluctantly accepted our status as an AFL feeder competition but I'll be buggered if I can accept the concept of playing early morning curtain raisers to AFL games.

Get ready for an hour of boredom Rico, as this important VFL clash will finish around an hour before the AFL game. Geelong playing a game at that ridiculous time, means you will be up and about bloody early to make the trip down to Skilled Stadium. When Port Melbourne played Geelong down there earlier this year. Only the standing room area was available... Not too good for some of Ports older supporters.

No need to worry about the hour of boredom. I predict that Rico will be buzzing around like an angry wasp, trying to get everything done so he can do a dash and get to the MCG for the Hawthorn V Brisbane game. It's very difficult on the fans of the AFL affiliate who wish to support the VFL club as well when scheduling like this occurs.

Actually matty , we may be short a runner this week , perhaps the lime green uniform would match your skin tones about that time of the morning ???? And I'm sure you'd be just jumping out of your skin to do a few fast 80 metre sprints ???? Spot on Syko , this'll be the quickest after match wrap up you've ever seen....especially if the world's greatest property steward has anything to do with it.......'why cant you blokes shower at home ?' etc etc .

[quote="rico"]And I'm sure you'd be just jumping out of your skin to do a few fast 80 metre sprints ????[/quote] I almost had to do that in running from the designated standing room to the stats box because I didn't know my services were needed. :P :oops:
