    I didn't say it wasn't. I said I was brought up with the 3pm time slot. And there's demands from the English populace to move it back to 3pm.

    No, but it is a valid point. This is Australia. Any excuse to party. And by previous arguments we should be catering for those who can't get the day of in WA or who are busy playing lacrosse at the time the bouncedown normally happens.

    I feel for the people who can't enjoy the GF because it's on at an inconvenient time. If only somebody would invent a device that allows you to record it and watch it later.

    Not bothered either way. If push came to shove I'd probably take a later/night GF, so I picked that, but not a big deal AFAIC.

    Get with the times Reg, haven't you got a VCR yet? I'll be getting one as soon as I figure out whether Beta or VHS will become the standard.

    Again the afl aren't considering the fan in something like this. The mcg works and clears that number of people back into the city, because most people walk back into the city. It's one thing to walk back part cut, a winner or a loser in the late afternoon, than late at night when everyone else is drugged up and drunk. Some people can still afford to take their kids and so. You hit the eateries at just the right time and it's all good the way it is. The condition of the people if they've got all day and night to drink. Before they start celebrating or commiserating. Just on that basis, for the people, let it be.

    I don't mind it either way but petitioning really hard for a night Grand Final seems a little weird to me. I think it'd be really good with a 5:30 bounce down or something but starting it much later than that would really get rid of some of the unique atmosphere the game, and whole day, really has. While it's great to be in Melbs the day of a sunny or otherwise Grand Final, I can see how appealling it'd be to have it later. Either way I don't mind but make it twilight at most, not bloody night time.

    That is actually the time I think would be best, 5.30 being what we have on Saturdays as 'night' games and it works well. Still mostly played in darkness at that time of the year and not too late for kids.

    But what about the 6 o'clock news!! The great tv constant in all of our lives. Heaven forbid we can't watch an opening news story about the show we were just watching before the news came on.
