    The AFL (Australian Football League) Grand Final is on this Saturday at the Melbounre Cricket Ground between the Sydney Swans and the West Coast Eagles.

    I live in Sydney, but support the West Coast Eagles.

    My mum, who lives in Melbourne, has a spare ticket. To get there I would have to drive for 9-10 hours from Sydney to Melbourne on Friday, attend the game on Saturday and drive back on Sunday.

    I can't afford the tickets for the plane (which are over $300 each way) and the trains are sold out.

    Should I do it?
  2. Is there any reason why you shouldn't?

    If not, then by all means, go.

    I'm going. I can lsiten to the basscasts from Dave Burgess on the way down, that will kill 6 out of 9 or so hours driving! :D
  4. pfft... I wouldn't bother going 10 hours drive... find out which of your friends has the biggest TV... organise a barbie at his house, plenty of beer... great day... at least, thats what I'm doing, except im the friend with the big TV :p

    i wouldnt bother going... its gonna cost you a **** tin jsut for the fuel. and besides you wouldnt feel too good after the swans pwn the eagles by 40 points... :crying: barry is too unstoppable when he brings his game

    but seriously drive there nothing like being at the G plus if your close enough you can always throw stuff at barry. but i doubt that would stob him its like waving a red flag at a bull ;)
  6. Mark this is the Australian Football League Grand Final! Not the American NFL. What are you waiting for? If it were cricket or American NFL, I'd say have a barbie, lots of beer and rent a big TV. But this is the most exciting sporting event in the world! Do I sound suffiently enthusiastic? The last time I drove that far for a weekend, there was a particularly hot woman waiting for me at the end of the line. I hope you have as good a time as I did.
  7. How could you even contemplate missing the Weagles thump the living dust outta the Swans????

  8. gimme a break :rolleyes: the "weagles" may as well quit now and save the embarrasment
  9. Do it, and make a poignant and witty sign to hold up when you get on TV.

    Swans by four goals.
    PUMP 'EM UP THE A......
    *deep breathes... calm down... its going to be oooooootay*

    Didn't the AFL merge with the NFL after Super Bowl III ? :D
