& # 39; Not exactly, & # 39; said Mr. Tee.
& # 39; As long as I could get it without making it all sweaty and disgusting, I didn't want to give her a stinky ring, it had to be all clean and shiny. & # 39;
Mr. Tee said he asked for permission for his soon-to-be father-in-law's permission, which assured him that his proposal idea & # 39; dunk so much of a slam as something & # 39; used to be.

Despite the additional confidence, Mr. Tee said he was nervous about making such a public proposal for what he hoped would be an empty arena.
& # 39; When we went outside and I saw that all company boxes were full, I started to choke my things a bit, & # 39; he said.

& # 39; It's the first time we've ever brought AFL to the attention together – it was a special day that became even more special, & # 39; said Mrs. Glouftsis.
& # 39; Did I think it would eventually become that public? No. But what a great way to celebrate. & # 39;

& # 39; I have had AFL for three years now and Dillon has been suffering from referee for about eight years and we have never had a match together & # 39 ;, Glouftsis said Adelaide now.
& # 39; Today (July 27) was our first game, with Dillon on the border and myself on the field.
& # 39; It was a very exciting day anyway and Dill said we had to get a photo taken for the AFL Umpires Association, so we went back to the field. Then we hung to the middle and he decided to make a proposal. & # 39;
