seems to be a lot of discussion about ANZ Stadium being the front runner because of its 80,000 seat capacity. If the GF was to be played in NSW, given border closures / travel restrictions and the fact that the main football code in NSW is League, how many people could they realistically count on getting to the stadium?
If it was played in Perth I would almost certainly say that it would be a full house, even if the grand finalists were both non-WA teams.

They can't hold it somewhere that the CEO's of the major sponsors can't or aren't prepared to fly to.

AFL is reportedly planning a rapid evacuation out of NSW, making ANZ stadium GF unlikely.

Simon Garlick is already working on the car rally scavenger hunt we have to go on to determine the order you can buy tickets in.

I wouldn't take anything in the West about this sort of stuff as anything but fantasy, Dockermus.

Or a chance to take a pic of NicNat with his arms outstretched so it looks like he's got the whole stadium cradled in his loving arms.

My bet remains that the Victorian Government's Department of Football would rather see the season abandoned than run the risk of a GF in WA being a success.

It will be in QLD for sure. No way would they let SA or WA have it.

To be quite honest, I don't care where they play the GF, this year or any year. What I would like to see happen before any other change is for Freo to be treated in a fair & equitable manner by the AFL.

The Gabba?? You're joking?! Wrong state (NRL is the code) with a clapped out stadium with only 2/3 the capacity of Optus.
Optus by a mile for the GF. You know it makes sense.

Whats funny is we've always been told that they play the grandfinal at the MCG because that's the ground that can hold the most fans , now it looks like the second best choice is optus and in true Vic bias they don't want to use the same reasoning.

Actually, I don't want it here anymore. The more games we play here the more chance of the slime winning and playing finals here.

Be nice for their fans, heading down to Lathlain for a walk through the Hall of Asterisks.

So, look, there’s really nothing in all this for us. Macguire and Kennett would sooner die than let WA or SA “steal” the jewel in the crown of their indulged and self-important lives, and, in any case, we aren’t going to be anywhere near the bikkies this year, so, just idly wondering, who would you like to win the asterisk?
