I am hoping for GWS and Sydney Swans grand final. Didn't care about Perth getting the GF.
Its the only toy Melbourne has to play with and look forward too..and dampness,
Perth Cup on the same day as the Melbourne Cup:? The Perth Cup is a Summer race day non event. MAKE IT SOMETHING!

I think it makes a lot of sense for Brisbane to host the GF. I know it's a rugby state, but with that said, a perfect opportunity for the AFL to lure them over.

To be fair and consistent, Shirley the GF venue is irrelevant, as only one week of the finals will be played, then the AFL will call off the rest of the season... Shirley? You there, Shirley?

I'm against the GF and final series coming to Perth - it would privilege that bunch of Slimers (who now look to be a certain contender) and this whole 'bidding war' between the states is unseemly.

No doubt we have the best stadium for it, there's little doubt that our infection control measures will provide the safest environment. But those guys down at AwFL Control still seem to think they can pocket their $12m from the event this year by getting state governments to front up some taxpayer bucks to stage it.

It ain't going to happen here Nissy. Let's just hold our self respect in total silence - when Gill comes knocking on the door, just tell him Optus has been booked out for a Wiggles reunion tour (or something).

Polly, you echoed my fears... the bloody Slimers will be licking their lips and dusting a shelf in their trophy cabinet. The thought fills me with utter dread.
No. We don’t want any finals games played here.
Relocate all the final 8 to a hub in Tassie. That’ll sort out the men from the boys!

Yep, said that two weeks ago, and say it even more so now. Anything that benefits the slime is a no go. Come on McGowan you're a Freo man. This cannot happen.
Go Queensland!

As much as I hate to say it, and how it may be unbearable, I think this option makes the most sense.

Isnt it odd that commentators on footy try on arguments based on 'fairness'. Its got nothing to do with fairness, it never has been. They've done a 30+ year deal on an assumption alone - now the biggest stadium is filling up with seagull droppings and they want someone to stump up and cover their contract with the MCC.

Just tell them that were locked into a concert contract with the Wiggles until 2057, try someone else.

The three states with a viable ground should form a union and pressure the AFL and the Victorian Government to agree to renegotiate the contract for future seasons.

It's actually a bit of a burden to have to have it this season but if you could use it to get future Grand Finals it would be a big win.

Qld is the obvious choice at the moment for the AFL.

It helps them promote the game there which they’ve been trying to do for years, has more Large suitable places of accomodation, is in the Vic timezone, is the place most Vic teams if not all will end up in after the regular season and may benefit a QLD team which again would promote the game in QLD.

Not to mention the warmer weather up there will give the AFL the excuse it needs to have a night grand final - something it has wanted for ages.

And it will stop the Clives (palmer) of the afl world from wanting to infect WA with the covid virus.
