Guess we simply disagree.If I felt the wrong teams were making the finals I might have a different opinion, but I haven’t seen any evidence of that. In fact in recent years I’d say at least 2 teams have been just making up the numbers in the 8.
People will always find something to complain about regardless, Geelong is a prime example.
All those years we were in the wilderness I never had or heard a conversation about how unfair the fixture was.
Whoever suggested reducing the amount of games to play each other once didn’t think of the commercial reality in doing so.
No argument on the 8 & teams making finals.
