As much as I don’t want a team to be robbed a final, I’d love to see what would happen if it got to that stage, where contractually someone is losing a final.
In this day and age I'd fully expect a legal challenge. West Coast is a very big club these days, our revenue base is pretty important to ensuring s**t clubs like bullflogs and norf stay alive, so theAFL cant just ignore us.

Then again, I expect they'd screw over the poor club or the AFL owned one and not us (eg Brisbane or GWS).

TBH I wish we'd throw our weight around as a big club a bit more anyway. The Vics wont help us out of their own free will - anything we want we should be taking from them by legal force: umpiring reviews, MRP reviews, fixtures, etc.

I am all for some weight throwing - need to be smart though. For one thing I dont think the club's PR is strong enough re support for the WAFL, paid for their own facilities (not tax payers), no pokies - the list goes on.

The Sleepy Hollow move to send a non-Victorian team to Geelong for a final this year is the bigger risk, noting of course that any Melbourne based away team will have the disadvantage of having to wear their white shorts at the MCG if they come up against Geelong. I haven't heard that threat being completely extinguished yet.

I think there is little chance the AFL will allow this.
Big Vic clubs like Essendon and Carlton could legitimately expect to host finals at Docklands if this happened. There's no way the AFL will want to open this can of worms.

There must have been a bit the week before too. No finals in Melbourne week 2 in 2006 either. And I had forgotten we lost the first final to Sydney by a point.
I was living in Melbourne at the time and everyone suddenly was a long lost dogs supporter. The Mrs and I were the only eagles watching the game in a very vocal throng of VFL supporters at the London in Richmond. Ahh the memories!

The week after everyone was a long lost SMFC fan.

Nathan Brown named his top 5 kicks of the comp.
Let's just say that Dusty and sicily made the list but no Eagle made it.

One of the comments under the post.

Martin one of the best kicks in the comp. Kicking it as far as you can every time is a top five trait is it?

If someone could legitimately find five better kicks than Jetta and Hurn I’d be seriously impressed.

If they found 5 better kicks than Hunt and Jetta, that would be considered great research and journalism. Reaching.

Can’t believe Tex Walker has been named in the team of the week.

I was at the game and he was genuinely very ordinary.

12 touches, 4 clangers. 0 tackles, 6 marks (1 contested)

sure he kicked 4 goals. 2 of them were lucky joe the gooses from the goal square though.
