Officially postponed now.

Perhaps only until mid next week, neither team have a game the following weekend.

They should move the game to Sunshine Coast.

It isn't. It's in Moreton, which is one of the areas lockdown, along with Brisbane and three others.

Can we stop this debate though. Dolphin is the closest alternative stadium - where it is isn’t the issue

Given the standard window for understanding the virus is 14 days I'd be very surprised if there wasn't an 11 day set of restrictions on the way to round off the current 3 day lockdown. We saw this with Adelaide

We also know throwing a region into a lockdown is the easy part. There are no thresholds or plans for getting a region out of lockdown

I know the govts. are being ultra cautious here with these lockdowns and border closes but this cant be a reliable solution for 2021, unless the vaccine program is ramped up to the point where the population reaches herd immunity levels.

We need better solutions, by this rate the season won't be complete not by June by later down the track later in the year and this is bad because the of Fox sports contract.

From memory there were more active and new cases in Qld in October when they had the AFL final than what we have today.  Nothing beats the consistency in govt and bureaucratic decision making.

Hilarious. One case in 113 days and known to have come from overseas quarantine.  What to do? Do we stop people bringing the virus back to Australia? - No, international flights still coming in - bring it on. But let's shutdown a city of 3 million people. Better still - let's tell people they will be in mortal danger after 6pm tonight so that shopping centres are totally packed for the next 6 hours!! 
But the virus was apparently not contagious yesterday when they first knew of this and in fact is only contagious after 6pm tonight so all good.

The good news is this highly contagious virus strain that is an extreme risk is only going to be so for 3 days

Australia have really lost the plot with its response. Ever since the Victorian outbreak, overcautious haphazard rules have become the normal

The WHO specifically said lockdowns arent a mechanism for beating the virus and only serve the purpose of buying time so regions overwhelmed by large numbers have time to get their resources in check. But what do they know?

1 fucking case and a major city is shut down. And we see the standard response of half the city panic buying while the other half try to flee

The virus isn't contagious until 6pm, so it is quite ok for Brisbanites to flee for the Gold Coast and Sunshine coast before then.

This is actually a textbook response and is perfect. It maybe could have been done last night starting today that’s all. 

What it does is put a lid on this thing and buys time to establish where the infections have been started and will give them time to ramp up contact tracing before it blows out of sight. 

Good response.

It's because it's the UK variant. 

.... and because contact tracing has established she moved widely throughout the city on public transport. So they actually can’t target one suburb with testing as they did with the last outbreak.

So the 2.8 million people who haven't used public transport are still probably not at risk, right? Same goes for the people that weren't actually on her train/bus (unless the new variant has super powers)?

Seems Sydney's contact tracing is able to identify specifci bus routes and train trips so they simply tell those on those servcies to isolate. Brisbane's tracing has narrowed it down to "she moved widely throughout the city on public transport". Magnificant use of technology.

Good response. 

Australia has a suppression strategy, not an elimination strategy. There is 1 fucking case and by the time they get contact tracers out over the next 48 hours they might find 2 or 3. Big deal

The situation is far from dire

I dont think you understand how impractical it is for every major region to yoyo in and out of lockdown everytime there is a case. We have seen this with Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney and now Brisbane. 4 major lockdowns in a 2 month period, with an estimated 12 months before our circumstances change

Panic buying, economic hardship, closures, disruptions to life and sport, inconsistency, fatigue, mental health issues etc...etc...etc...

We have never been in a situation where 1 case has been deemed too overwhelming and worthy of keeping things in check until contact tracers get on top of things. Australia has changed tact and it is the furthest thing from a good response

For 9 months as a Victorian I have been waiting for the day we catch up to the other states. It has become increasingly apparent we're at the standard and you guys are going to come to us

Fuckwit after Fuckwit posting their ignorance and hatred.

Absolutely no respect for the familys of the 820 Victorians who died of Covid in the last uncontrolled outbreak.  No respect for the pain and suffering of millions of Victorians that stood and followed the rules and brought that horror to a halt.

Now we face a new and greater threat from a new direction and the callous pieces of shit want to see more death and suffering because somehow a game of football is important.

Even the Trumpist simp that is the Nation's Prime Minister gets it:

'This isn't any ordinary strain'

"I know they will be some in Brisbane today asking 'why is this necessary? There is only one case. '" said Prime Minster Scott Morrison."Well, this isn't any ordinary case."This is a very special case and one that requires us to treat things quite differently until we know more and we will learn much in the next few days.
"What Queenslanders will be doing over the next few days, they will be doing not just for themselves and their own communities, but for the rest of the country.
"So again, I thank you for the patience you will have to show in relation to disruption, we know it causes disruption. But we're also quite short that it is the prudent course action given the circumstances.
