Where are you watching tonights game?

Postby Hailstorm » Sat Sep 20, 2008 1:21 pm

Rather than put it in an actual poll I thought I'd just ask the question to anyone who might be viewing this forum this arvo.

Where are you watching tonights game?

1 - At the LIVE SITE in Docklands.

2 - At the Rising Sun in SOUTH MELBOURNE.

3 - For fear of confusing people, the Rising Sun in RICHMOND (is it even being shown here?)

4 - At home on channel nein's delayed telecast or Foxtels delayed telecast.

5 - Somewhere else (provide information)

6 - Not watching it at all. (tell us why?)


As for me personally, I'm still sussing out the weather so I may make a decision pretty late in the day. At this stage I'm probably headed to Docklands but to be honest I don't know anyone else who headed there so my decision could easily be swayed to go elsewhere. If the weather does turn nasty I was gonna go to the Rising Sun (but which one??? I'm so confused...)

So come on guys and girls, don't be shy. What are you up to tonight?

I've heard that the Swan Hotel in Richmond will also be showing the game live. This could be wrong as I haven't contacted them myself to confirm this.

I'm off to the Rising Sun Hotel in South Melbourne, might be a tight squeeze though, they have room for just under 100 according to League Of Our Own.

Looks like I'll be watching it on delay on Fox or Nine as it's going to be too friggin cold at Docklands and I'm not going to a pub that is packed.

I guess there is always the option of tuning into ABC Country Radio or watching the score updates online (not quite the same is it).  :icon_frown:

at Rising Sun, is it in the main part of the pub?  Or do they use the function room?

Rising Sun, Sth Melb? Function room, main part will have the AFL on.

Rising Sun, Richmond? Not sure but probably the same if they have it on.

For anyone planning on watching it on pay tv, just remember that it's on Fox Sports One, not Two as is normally the case.

Stood in the rain & cold at OP to watch games,so the piazza at Waterfront City won't be that different.

Here's to a great game & hope bellyache is right - Bellamy finds silver lining in Melbourne's shock loss

I think Docklands for me...
Google maps and the Waterfront city website look like there's a big canopy anyway, although looks like it will stay dry!

it was here earlier, but it's calmed down at home now, so i'm hoping it's going to do the same in the city!
Regardless, bring on those Broncos!  Hope everyone enjoys the night with a good result...
