thought id collate results of the last ten years of finals.And we also have an entire finals series were we get no home ground advantage despite being higher on the ladder than our opponents.
Facts are this.
2017 - We get 2 home ground advantages when we wouldn't have. Advantaged.
2018 - We got 2 neutral games when we should've got home ground advantages. Disadvantaged.
2019 - All 3 finals we played had the higher team on their home ground. No change.
2017 this may have won us the flag, in 2018 it may have lost us the flag. The point is it isn't all good like some people make it out to be.

keep whining about having to play neutral games in victoria - an interstate team is almost twice as likely to have to fly to another state and play at a disadvantage than a victorian team in a final.
those numbers are damning
45% of the clubs do 66% of the interstate travel in finals.
the victorians make up 55% of the clubs and do 34% of the travelling for finals.
you guys are literally whining about getting a way better deal.
