Chamberlains - complete legal services for business

We were **** and the ref was a ****

By johnboy - 4 March 2007 34

Well the headline was a match summary phoned by a drunk to his mate in my hearing last night at the Brumbies.

On the bright side we won the second half 7-0, a feat somewhat marred by a 19-0 spanking in the first half for a humiliating home defeat 19-7.

Planet Rugby’s match report is here for those who want the gory details about our team which can’t catch.

Adding to the fun was the abysmal ticket sales. This was the immobile mob in front of the eastern booth at kickoff time:


(BTW the dude in the foreground with the glasses is a queue-jumper of mammoth proportions, and yes, we were all too gutless to even say anything possibly because he was with a mob of young children)

Not exactly the best use of my leisure spend.

What’s Your opinion?

My left arm is famous!

ahh, lovely welcoming attitude there.

The windows were about 1/3 staffed, furthermore the people they had on were painfully slow. I used to do cinema box office and I can tell you it was substandard out there last night.

here’s a picture of the gates taken at the same time, the ticket sales were so slow there was no-one moving through the gates despite the big crowd still trying to get in.

^ Exactly, is it really that hard for people to understand that if you turn up just before the game starts, there’s going to be a line to get in???

If you find it so traumatic to come a few minutes earlier, buy a season ticket and then you can go straight on through. Or better yet, stay home.

Canberrans always turn up with 10 minutes to go before something starts, and it looks like they have all the ticket windows open in the photo, what would you expect them to do?

Turn up a bit earlier, watch the lead-up game (if they have them these days – difficult to tell from my remote locale this season), and sink a few beers while you wait.

“Maybe next time people will get there a bit earlier? The box office opens at 4:15, yet people are still stupid enough to arrive 15 minutes before kick-off.”

Wow, that’s customer service!

Support the team properly, buy a season ticket.

Growling Ferret, thats good, rugby doesn’t need its bandwagon followers who are only interested in games that look like a game of rugby league.

The bloke standing to the left of the mass-cheater, that is… We were in front of him, then he ended up in front of us. Go figure.

To think, at any time you could be standing next to Johnboy and not know it. scary.

I was. The bloke standing to the left is my mate, I was on the left of him.
Ticket sales were absolutely shocking.

Super 14 is anything but Super. And if this is the future of rugby, the sport as a form of spectator entertainment is dead… 4 years ago I used to go to all the games. 2 years ago I started watching them at home/pub. Now I prefer to watch whatever else is on Fox Sports

Grasshumping isn’t a sport.

All those jumping off the Brumbies bandwagon as it careers off the road might like to try coming along to a Raiders game in the next few weeks. It promises to be far more entertaining than the drivel you watched at this match…

Yep, a poor performance and we now have the least number of scoring points than any other team in the comp.

Lose to the Stormers next week, we may as well declare the season closed.
