5 votes and most Vics would have been asleep when the thread was posted...I'll pessimistically wait and see, can't trust Vics to do the right thing looking at how covid's going there.What a glorious surprise. Most respondents accept and agree to share the GF around. How refreshing.
Radical bro !The GF location should be secret, like illegal raves back in the day.
If you're in the know, you'll get a txt with directions at 10pm the night before.
If you're a narc, stay home and watch that sh*t on the telly with the rest of the losers.
What's your name? What have you had? Reach for the lasers, safe as fu**.
Yeah, the Bulldogs really dodged a bullet there, hey.I like the MCG.
Wouldn't want to win somewhere else (in the unlikely case we even get there again).
But objectively it is a strange arrangement when talking about a national league to play the GF always in one location that is even some teams home location.
I don't know if they could logistically wait two weeks before the GF to decide the venue, though. Maybe they could have the states of the top four teams prepare 5-6 weeks out because it's unlikely a GF would happen between two teams outside the top 4 from two different states to the top four teams.Victorian here, I would have 2 options.
Either the team that finishes top of the ladder before finals starts nominates the GF location so there are plenty of weeks for people to make arrangements and gives an incentive to the team finishing top to have a home state GF (massive for interstate clubs) or;
If they keep the pre-Grand Final bye I would have the highest ranked team in the GF gets the match in their home state in the biggest stadium (on the proviso they could expand their seating in SA and QLD to a minimum 60k).
Very true. I think preparing months in advance, you'd sell out the venue no matter where it is or who is playing, but would people want Richmond v Collingwood in front of 60k or 100k at the MCG? Or a western derby GF in QLD?Should be at the MGG 10 times over an 18 year period. Have 2 in each of the states that have teams.
Just be prepared that just cause West Coast finish top and make a grand final, it might be at the SGC that year, or the Gabba. And if the Pies finish number 1 and make it, it could be scheduled to be at Adelaide Oval.
I've got "A Melbourne GF every 4-5 years." Close enough to what you're saying.Strange poll missing the best option.
I like the every 4 years Olympic year idea floated by the media quite a bit.
Every leap year the GF goes to Perth/Adelaide/Sydney/Brisbane on rotation, so each city gets it once every 16 years and there would be a huge build up to it on each occasion.
I say this as a long term MCC member also.
