Was probably Hal's fault. Card was probably declined at the bar. 😁
Fans are unhappy that the league has sold the "Grand Final" to Sydney for the next few years. Until now it has always been that a team can earn the right to play the Grand Final at home if they qualify from a high enough position. That goes out the window now and all Grand Finals for the next 3 years (I think) will be played in Sydney, even if two Melbourne teams are playing, for example.
Fans have seen it as a slap in the face and are protesting. Personally, I shrugged my shoulders at the decision, because the game is bleeding money here at the moment.
Unsurprisingly, things have gone too far here. If you give a dumb cunt the opportunity to display how dumb of a cunt they are, they will seize it.
