Add to that 5th/6th will get a home final on a 20k ground.It's a lot more fair that for finishing 1st they get to play their 'home final' in a different city on their opponent's home ground who have just played 7 consecutive games there, and the game will be on a Thursday or Friday night, which will make it difficult for the 'home' team's supporters based in the home city to get to the 'home' ground in a different city, whereas it won't be difficult for the 'away' side's fans who have just seen their team play seven consecutive home games at the 'away' ground to make it.
That seems like a picture of fairness to me. Good motivation to play for top spot.
I never gave a s**t about where we played but if the AFL makes rules for one then it should be for all.
