I know much was made of the prices the NRL decided to charge for tickets to the Grand Final. I guess they will be justified if Sunday ends up a sellout. There's been a lot of criticism of the finals crowds. I think they've been ok, with the exception of the Souffs v Scum match. But getting my ticket today, I looked closely at the bays and how they were categorised. The things that struck me most ? 1. The very limited number of "bronze" tickets. Seems like the main purpose of these was to make the claim that tickets were available from $80. They forgot to add that you wouldn't be in the same postcode as the players. 2. The classification of some of the bays is a bit of an eyebrow raiser. Bays on the try lines are being classified as Platinum costing $285 ! Seating plan. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/331034826355?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2648 Fortunately, I only need to buy 1 and I wouldn't want to be anywhere but with the masses in the Manly bays. But I'd hate to be stumping up for a family ticket in Platinum or Diamond....over a grand. Ouch.
