Im sure there is a lot of giggles and smiles after the prank episode by the Chaser Group and Red Faces on the part of the police. But ask yourselves how serious it is and what will be the outcome. Maybe through all the laughter you havent given it much thought, well just THINK about it. In Australia security tends to be copycat and follows other nations styles and methods and pranks like the one pulled by the Chaser Group to take the piss out of the police might just lead to a bit more tightening up security and what does that mean to us…….. LESS FREEDOM of movement thats what it means and will you all be laughing then and will Chaser and his idiots be standing up and chanting hey look we caused that, like F…K they will. Im in the US right now and security is noticeable when you go to any event football baseball etc. Inconvenient, I suppose so, but everyone knows the reason for it and accepts it as a precaution for their safety. It took a vile terrorist act to bring this action into everyday life with security forces at different places consstantly alert.
The fun and games of the chaser group will bring tighter security to Australia and if thats what they intended to do then stand up and say it and forget the piss taking and hiding behind a so called prank. Personally I hope they get jailed for it if it was only a joke. The rest of us are going to have to live with the consequences for everafter believe me. Being serched at sporting events where there are huge crowds and more cameras like the Poms and they dont complain one camera for every fourteen people there’s freedom and privacy for you how do you liike them apples Chaser. Youre a bunch of F….K…G mugs that can do those things because Australia is still a great place to live and feel free and people like you are going to destroy it for the rest of us and we will suffer to satisfy your personal ego. Thanks a lot MATE.
Go the Mets and I got tickets Mets V the Dodgers, they were won in a raffle with seating behind the plate and close up in a box with access to the clubhouse for lunch, just what the doctor ordered for this Aussie, a great day out. That is until we got there and as things did not seen right, I went to the office and asked when everything was going to open up, just remember I was not alone there, there was others and still more arriving by train for this event. I was told the game had been put back from 1.10pm to 8pm in the evening and that was not possible for me to go at that time so that was that for me. The guy in the office told me all attempts to let people know had been tried, but Im still only a visitor and didnt know and neither did the other people arriving for the game presumably they were not all visitors with american accents. The official at the office door told me when I asked why it had been put back said it was because a certain TV station had the rights of broadcast and it had to be in the evening. His words were ” its all about money not you”, that made me feel real good and the people with me wont be going again and the TV station can rot in hell as far as I am concerned. So, not happy all atempts tried to give the tickets away failed I spose I can keep them as a rememberance to the event that I never saw. Very dissapointed and as for the Mets marketing team youre a shambles you couldnt organise a bunk up in a brothel.
As I have stated Im Australian and baseball is not our national game but it is increasing in interest in leaps and bounds and as a convert I love to watch it and enjoy it.
So I dont really think it is much to ask for once having purchased a ticket to be allowed to watch it. But thats not so, if you end up with seats on either far side behind the umpire ones view of the batting/pitching area becomes greatly diminished. I dont know if this applies to all stadiums but certainly the stadium at Coney Island the home of the Brooklyn Cyclones. So what is the reason for this you may well ask, well booze and food/drinks etc are the reason. Now its impossible to stop either of those activities occuring as it is part and parcel to some folks afternoon/evening out and the fun and enjoyment for the kids. . Now there are areas that are designated at stadiums in Australia for the drinker, you want to drink thats where you go, on Saturday at the game against the Jammers everytime the guy with a beer box balanced on his head came up and down the steps the people wanting a beer he and his clients blocked all visual access to the game. I dont think thats fair they should have the sole seating aside in those outside areas for them alone. Hardly anyone around us seemed to occupy a seat for more than 10 minutes at a time. When the Jammers were five home runs ahead and all seemed lost for the cyclones I spose that was enough to drive a local to drink but their champions got stuck in and reversed the score line in a very thrilling and exciting way. Its a pity I couldnt see much of it because the isles were blocked by people coming and going and buying beer. Thats it …………….thats all…………..I think its a genuine complaint and one that should be and could be easily addressed. Was a good game and congratulations to the Brooklyn Cyclones and thanks for the ball plus I bought a cap it has my initials on it.
