    Down side of any train from the airport is that it's a privatr cost till you hit the public network so its an inflated price but still safe as

    Its only expensive to go through the station gates at the airport.

    If you are just on a train passing through the stations you just go through on normal fair. Not that this would help SI

    Really? What's the difference? I haven't been on a train in Sydney since I was 12 or 13.

    The govt. got a private company to build the airport rail link and they have some dodgy deal where they get a cut if you use the stations on "their" link. So a $5-$6 trip costs you $10-$15

    Okey Cokey lads, tix have been released for most of the early rounds.  Just trying to get something organised and looks like there might be some momentum for a Sportal/Fanatics catch up at the Tigers/Eels Easter Monday game on March 28th.  Potentially at Leichhardt on the 14th and possibly on the Thursday night before Easter with the public holiday the next morning; but the Easter Monday game is shaping up well.

    Once again it's the Tigers lads leading the way with getting shit done of course Very Happy , but will be at the GF rematch Friday night 25th as well for any Brisbane lads wanting to catch up.  If you are interested let me know as decent tix for that one might get a bit thin.

    Also will be at the Tigers/Titans game at CBUS on the Saturday 19th, decent seats won't be an issue there I'm sure...

    And heading to WIN Sunday afternoon 27th as well  Very Happy .  ST is going to try to make that one but not sure yet.

    Let me know or hit me up by PM, but yeah, the Easter Monday game is looking the goods for an official get together.

    Lads, apologies, I've got shit WiFi where I am and FB won't even load messages properly. Luckily this is one of the few sites running allright (wouldn't have got that with Sportal).

    For Bender-block 19 mate, far left looking at the field. Got the kids tonight and driving (at this stage) so will only have a couple. Will gravitate up the hill though with Milchy up there. Krumpy-couldn't read most of your message but looks like you are running late and may not get there? If you do PM us. I'm assuming FB PM's will be ok once I get out of the apartment so try on here or FB. No Worries-Eels game mate? I'll be giving it a nudge then as I will have allready put the kids on the plane and will be on public transport Very Happy

    Mate, Tallis has a pair of pink leather loafers - worn (of course) without socks. Too many knocks to the head. Theres a photo of them in full flight on @mredkavalee 's twitter TL. Cant bring it up at work tho.

    Lol. That's the excuse Manly fans use for not travelling. Still better than Roosters fans who just don't go to games at all

    Bullbender, SI and myself were there (and SI's 2 neglected children looking bored in the corner)

    Missed a bit of the game talking crap about Fantasy.

    At the end we were making fun of Sironen for having such a crap fantasy score. We didn't notice he'd gone off after 10 minutes. That reflects badly on us for not paying attention, but also badly on Sirro in that he is normally so anonymous that his absence is not noted.

    Was great to finally meet yourself and Bender mate. Just watching 3 devout Tigers fans standing at Leichhardt with the boys towelling up the shittest of shit cunts, but we still only had conversation for actual Fantasy and our heads in our phones, tells us how far gone we are with our DT addiction I think Lol

    Okey Cokey cunts.

    Fanatics catch up at ANZ for the Tigers/Eels game at 4 o'clock Monday. Four of us confirmed thus far: yours truly, Krumpy, Bender, Your Name. I believe Milchy is keen but not confirmed yet as well. Everyone welcome, obviously Tigers heavy at this stage but we don't mind travelling Razz , and Krumpy has kindly volunteered to organise tix (will sort him out at the ground) to make sure we are all sitting together.

    PM me if you are interested and can commit, would be great to meet a few more Fanatics. It was very relaxed meeting Bender and Milchy at Leichhardt last week and I think we filled a thread full of Fantasy talk in 2 hours Very Happy
