    I'm going with the fam-bam. Much like scraggers, thanks to some great woofers I was able to secure some extra seats for the in-laws and their extended mob who all cheer rwb.
    What should I tell her? She's going to ask.

    Unfortunately no and I gotta tell you it's bloody tough. Having your team that you've supported your whole life through thick and thin often on the smell of an oily rag success wise play in a Grand Final that you cannot go to is one of the worse feelings I've ever experienced and about as bad as it gets.

    My jubilation that we have another chance to win a cup versus not being able to see it is a cruel dichotomy. That feeling is also mirrored in lockdown in terms of it helping me get through at the moment yet lockdown is the reason I can't go. Yep thank the Dogs of old I saw 2016. I remember well the beers and walking into the ground with Scraggers on that incredible day. Enjoy this one mate.

    Im just going to enjoy it from now. Giving the barcode away was emotional but I think we may get a few looks at this over the next 5 years.

    Went to the prelim, that was very satisfying. Locked in for the GF, have to make the most of them as they only come around every 5 years

    For the folk who are going, cheer loud and cheer proud

    Well said 1ed, IMO you have summed up what a lot of us are feeling perfectly.

    Re: Who's going to the big dance?

    It sucks we can’t go but I’m just focusing on the up side - our club is in a grand final and for that I’m greatful.

    Each day that goes by it sinks in more and more that I wanna win the damn thing.

    I was so privileged to see the 2016 Grand Final live. EasternWest secured me a ticket and I am forever thankful. This one is so much more of a privilege. So many of my friends on here will not have this opportunity. I will be there, and I will represent. I will be loud and proud. And when all is said and done, and Marcus is lifting the trophy above his head, my thoughts will be with all members of WOOF that have been there with me through thick and thin.

    As really, really annoying as all the people who signed up to the forum for the express purpose of getting a ticket to the game were (and are), the kindness that the forum showed in helping actual members who missed out getting a ticket was incredibly touching.

    I was happy to assist with my barcodes to Doggies supporters.
