Crowds unlikely at AAMI with the AFL fleeing town.

Macarthur are a huge chance. Could host the semi, and playing a city side minus 3 best players.
If no crowds allowed game should be moved to Sydney or Canberra not a good look to play a final with no crowds.
City can forget about hosting the Grand Final if they win, guaranteed now it will be played in Sydney!

Im not getting over confident as Adelaide looked great in the weekend.

But what a great Grandfinal it would be for the Skyblues against the Bulls at Bankwest.

No ticket sales this morning for the city game, pending further information from the department of health.

7k at Geelong tomorrow night, but not Melbournians can attend.

If they allow a crowd at AAMI it might be as low as 3-4k.

They aren't allowing any fans. I assume they are allowing them in Geelong due to Geelong being regional. I suspect they will move the game to Sydney.

Sad that we're not going to get the chance to play in front of the home fans.

Mind you, Sydney is on the doorstep of its own outbreak....
They ain't as panic stricken in NSW as the Victorian Government are so are unlikely to go into a full lockdown.
will most likely be played at Bankwest if moved anyway away from the current outbreak at Bondi.

The Grand Final will be the big concern at this point.

Kograh and Leichhardt are also put of the way from the current outbreak. Semi should be fine, final is a wait and see.

I can understand having the GF in Sydney if we make, but being forced to play our home semi final against a ratchet team of peasants that finished 6th in the league, in front of their inbred mouth breathing flog fanbase would be an utter joke and abomination.

It's a difficult decision either way. If the game is moved to Sydney it would likely not be at Campbelltown but instead at kograh or leichhardt (Campbelltown is pretty far away from Sydney proper so it would be quite a neutral venue)
