Oops my bad

2019 btw you played carlton twice at the mcg and geelong twice at the mcg - one of those times being a final where geelong was the higher ranked team.

Any other years you would like to address?
Geelong was not the higher ranked team in that preliminary final. They lost their QF, we won ours, therefore we took the higher ranking.
2017 - 11 games at the MCG, fewer than our SA and WA friends get at their respective home grounds, equal to our NSW and QLD friends.
2021 - will now get 12 games at the MCG, just two of those against travelling sides.
Really ‘easy’ run.

If it were the eagles in richmonds position and geelong lost their prelim - the eagles would be flying to melbourne to play geelong

Richmond dont do regional grounds during finals
AFL knows how to make money


otherwise we would want our home games at Punt Road

Sigh. Kranky, you've derailed so many threads over the past 4 years with your victim narrative. It's become really, really boring. Look, I realise that you've been brought up by your mum to believe that if you want something you haven't earned, all you need do is ware people down with infernal winging and tantruming, and they'll eventually give in. But if you and your fellow whingers could just give it a rest for a few days (as if that'll happen), I'm sure the rest of BigFooty would be very, very grateful.

Thanking you in advance.

If assume you mean if Geelong lost their quali. But that is absolutely not how it works. If you win your QF you are the home team for the prelim. It is rare that a lower ranked team on the ladder will host the PF because it can only happen if first loses their QF - which is very rare. The last time it happened before 2019 was actually when Adelaide lost to St Kilda in 2005.
That year both PFs were hosted by teams who finished lower on the ladder. West Coast (2nd) hosted Adelaide (1st) while St Kilda (4th) hosted Sydney (3rd).

EDIT:Last time was actually 2006, happened both years. In 06 Adelaide (2nd) hosted West Coast (1st) and Sydney (4th) hosted Fremantle (3rd).

Should be a good game, feeling a lot more confident we have two tall's coming out and two tall's coming in.
Hopefully Vardy doesn't get a game and we let Harry Edwards be our second ruck and when he is doing that throw Oscar Allen into backline to cover him.

Half our problem this year is we play too many tall's upsetting our balance, its looking like we are starting to select better balanced sides.

If we can win this game we then have the bye and will start to get our good players back.

If Shane Edwards hurt himself training earlier as rumoured, he would be a handy out and give us more chance of winning. Right now I'd still have Richmond favourites to win by a goal or two.

Subis capacity - mate our waiting list to be a member is capped at 5 years although it tends to take a much longer time than that. There are tens of thousands of eagles fans dont get to watch footy live.

But thats a false equivalence - subi was a toilet - etihad is a modern well designed stadium with better viewing in most seats than the mcg, a roof so when its raining you stay dry and warm.

I suspect the reason mcg tenants hate it is because their win loss ratio is lower.

Its a seriously good ground to watch football - ive been there heaps snd was praying that when they eventually (it took 20 years of dithering) rebuilt our stadium they would take a lot of etihads design - they did.

Ive sat in shitty seats at the g and shitty seats at etihad and the etihad seats are far superior to the g.
I agree about the shitty seats at Marvel being better than the shitty seats at the MCG - sort of. It's an unfair comparision though - because if even if there are 45,000 crappy seats at the G there are still 55,000 good ones, which is more than Marvel's capacity.

I went to the Giants game and I nearly always go to our one home game at Marvel - I don't have a problem with it as a venue at all, and I don't know why some other Richmond fans do.

I do know that a few people have had trouble adjusting the the new ticketing system forced on us by Covid-19 and that has effected numbers a bit, but even so the 17,000 crowd was a piss poor effort by us. Hopefully we will see big crowds in Melbourne again by the end of the year.

Eagles really need to show some mettle this weekend. Could be a fiery one! Tigers by 17. Of course Eagles can win at home, but Just can’t trust eagles even at home these days.

I was sooooo jealous of etihad when all we had was subi - remember going there vs bombers one year and it had been drizzling all day and night and was fxxxxxxn freezing - i hadnt been before with the roof closed.

got there and by half time im peeling the layers off, nice and warm no rain fkkkk yeah!!!!
