I'd prefer Geelong Vs GWS so I don't have to live in fear during the game. Richmond Vs Collingwood is the worst or second worst match-up imaginable for a Carlton supporter.

Interestingly, if Collingwood qualify we'll see a Grand Final match-up record equalled. Currently held by Collingwood Vs Melbourne on 7 occasions, either potential Collingwood opponent would equal this tally.

GWS (---) Geelong (2011) Richmond (2017) Collingwood (2018).

Like to see different teams in the grand final, so GWS-Geelong would be ideal. Second preference is GWS-Tigers. Generally, third preference would be Pies-Cats, but I can't deny a Pies-Tigers GF would be epic.

I am looking forward to the GF in any case. I have a feeling GWS might have an awful GF match if they get there, though, and I hope that's not the case because I'd like to see an epic GF and I'm confident the Pies wouldn't go down easy against the Tigers or Cats.

Anything but Collingwood and Geelong. Please Richmond. I'm on the Pies for the flag but if the Cats get up on Friday I'll be a Giants fan come 4:30pm Saturday.

Richmond v Anyone, surprisingly
Either opponent has benefits
GWS would be a fair bit easier to get a ticket against
Collingwood is a pretty tantalising prospect, the contrast between a win and a loss is about as big as it gets

Got to be nerve racking for a Pies fan if they made it. I remember that feeling in 2005. Can either win a premiership, or lose 2 GF's in a row and hate your life.

If its a close game tigers v pies would have possibly the most insane atmosphere of a GF since the old VFL days.

GWS v Geelong would be an almost surreal atmosphere, what a strange GF match up that would be, but thats my preferred option as I want the Giants to win the flag and I think they can beat the Cats but I dont think they can beat the Tigers.

Of the remaining 4 teams I would prefer GWS win the flag but I don't see them making it. The very unlikely GWS vs Geelong would be interesting.

I reckon it will be Collingwood vs Richmond which should be an OK game. Don't love the way Richmond play but enjoy Collingwood's style of play.
