Apologies for posting this but is a opinion forum and I need to get this off my chest! 2 months ago, I booked 3 tickets to the Manly Dugout for the Bulldogs game as my 12 year old son loves being able to sit and talk with the players during the Under 20's and be so close to the action during the main game (bit of a buzz for me too). We did it last year and it was fantastic! This was to be his birthday present. Today, after my second email chasing the tickets, I was advised that because Scott Penn had decided yesterday that he wanted the entire box, I now have to miss out. As we live in Canberra and a Sea Eagles member, this was our once a year visit to Brookvale. I have always believed this was a "fan's" box and the Corporate side had the fully catered ones in the Grandstand, how naive of me! I think it is very sad and extremely disappointing that any Corporate power broker (and I realise he owns the team) can just come in and do this! I know some of you will think "why don't I just get general admin tickets" and believe me I would but it is not the birthday experiance my son wanted to have. I am sorry I posted this here instead of the whinge forum Dan, but I was hoping to raise the awareness of what happened and on the off chance, find someone on here that maybe would be able to help us.
