I need your advice as to whether you think I was right or wrong: Yesterday on the Hill I was there early enough to get a good spot and put down my rug, knowing friends would be joining me. They did, and also put down two more rugs. Now, the son of my mate was also expecting two more friends, so we had more than enough space for our needs. The two friends were late - very late, and as the Hill started to fill I became anxious, knowing that we really were taking up too much space for our numbers. By 2.20pm the two others hadn't arrived, and when three Manly supporters looking for a spot approached us I told them they could sit partially on one of our rugs. That caused a sharp rebuke from my mate, who told me I had no right to offer up his son's rug. As it turns up, the two stragglers didn't turn up until 2.25pm - half way through the first half, and there was still sufficient room for them. As a Hill goer for 50 years, my belief is that you don't take up more space than you need, and if people are late for the kick-off they forego their rights to a good position. What do you think?
