Emergency Management Australia (EMA), the Australian Government lead for disaster and emergency management, is warning all Australians to prepare for a Richmond loss this weekend.
In a statement released on their website, the agency advised Victorians to ‘flee the state of Victoria’ and ‘not to expect to ever be able to return’.
The agency said people should leave early to beat the traffic and not wait for the outcome of the game, suggesting even three-quarter time might be too late.
Under the Australian Government’s GWS Victory Emergency Plan, Victoria will be sacrificed, as will parts of southern NSW and eastern South Australia.
The plan also prioritises evacuating likely targets such as the AFL board, Andrew Demetriou and the Tarago the GWS supporters travelled to the game in.
EMA says essential services are likely to cease working within hours of a Tigers loss, as roving bands of Richmond supporters destroy essential infrastructure ‘like a zombie apocalypse come to life’.
If trapped by Richmond supporters, citizens are advised to distract them with alcohol.
Outside of Victoria, ASIO says it is currently monitoring isolated groups of Richmond supporters and is advocating communities to be alert to the danger within their midst.
EMA has advised that putting as much distance between yourself and any Richmond supporter is the best approach, with large groups considered especially dangerous.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the government was monitoring the situation carefully.
“If the Richmond footballing team lose the NRL Grand Final, we expect the complete collapse of society south of the Murray River.”
“The government stands ready to deal with this crisis but I’m hopeful Richmond can outshoot their opponents.”
