Stand by for a deluge of hard-luck stories this week from Tigers fans who miss out on a ticket to the club’s first AFL grand final in 35 years.

The newspapers are already full of it as you can see from this Cheryl Critchley piece in the Herald Sun and this informative Fairfax piece on how the 100,000 MCG tickets are divvied up.

    William A Clark, 19th century US copper baron, stated: ‘I never bought a man who wasn’t for sale.’

    Good luck, Stephen.

    Geez Stephen . . . on your knees. Your best bet mate would be a quiet phone call to Trent Cotchin. Pretty sure he may know someone on the MRP open to a ‘little squeeze’?

    All sorted – agreed to pay $780 for two tickets to see the game. No contras or dodgy deals required.

    Congratulations on not doing a deal with the devil.

    Nevertheless it would’ve made a juicy story.

    Happy for you Stephen, but I was honestly hoping for a last minute hail Mary all mighty grovel come Friday morning. I’ll be happy to see the tigers finally get one anyway. Good luck!
