New Grand Final Footy Record

The AFL this morning announced that a new Grand Final Football Record would be published this week for the replay on satruday.  There is even less reason to hang on to any stock left over from last week’s game.

    yeh great,

    we have a ticketek agency, and the AFL deemed it appropriate TO NOT ALLOW CLUB MEMBERS to purchase their tickets over the counter from the AGENCY NETWORK, only online or by phone.

    We have had many disadvantaged Club Members who do not have internet access or a credit card that will miss out on a ticket to the AFL grand Final. Why not use the existing infrastructure of the AGENCY NETWORK to provide a service to members.
    GIVE THEM CHOICE.
    AGENCY,INTERNET or PHONE.

    I sold 6 yesterday to collectors who felt that it would become valuable, I’m holding onto a few for the moment.

    Yeh I wish Andrew Demetriou was more responsive to members needs. Fancy not allowing members the option of purchasing their tickets over the counter along with the option of Internet or Phone! And then using the lame excuse of staffing issues at agencies or security issues with people lining up. Poor effort by a man who is earning approx. 750k per annum. Surely you would want to maximize the distribution of tickets through all avaliable avenues.

    I would urge all Club Officials to ensure that the AFL never preclude people from purchasing tickets over the counter if they WISH TO DO SO. Until we become a csahless society, then the goal posts can change.

    It almost borders on discrimination, forcing people to own a credit card and transact into cyberspace.
