i would swap the last two games as Carlton will bring in a much bigger crowd than the Saints and Swans

We're not getting a home final at Marvel, that's ridiculous.
Why not, isn't it St Kilda's preferred home ground? And what sort of crowd would a Saints v Swans final draw at the MCG?

Melbourne/Swans got 75k, Geelong/West coast in 2019 was 51k. I'd expect somewhere in the 60s at least.

Ask fans of Geelong where they'd like to play home finals, and compare that with where they actually play home finals.

Probably a moot point when they don't actually make the finals...

The only final we've played at Marvel was back in 2011 vs Sydney, but that was when all four of the first week of finals were in Melbourne. And they didn't play finals on Thursday back then.

With most likely Collingwood and Carlton getting a home game as well, all three would be played at the MCG, with one game there on the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

Dogs/Crows was at the MCG in 2015 and got 61000. I may be wrong but I assume Saints/Swans would draw equal, if not more.

Thursday night: Carlton v GWS MCG (5 v 8)
Friday night: Collingwood v Melbourne MCG (1 v 4)
Saturday: Sydney v St Kilda SCG (6 v 7)
Saturday night: Brisbane v Port Adelaide Gabba (2 v 3)
The 2 preliminary finals are usually before the Elimination finals
