There can be only one...
The wider spaces will test our defensive structures as well, so that's another positive.

More experience these young blokes get playing on the MCG the better.
MCG is 160m long and 141m wide. It is 0.5m longer than Docklands and 12.2m wider, so a bit more than 6m on each side. Arden Street is the same dimensions as Docklands. I am not sure if it is that much harder to cover that space.

I beg to differ. Richmond's multi premiership winning game plan works at the MCG and much less well at Docklands or smaller grounds. It ain't because of the wind. I think the new Perth stadium is the same dimensions as the G and you can bet that's no coincidence.

Sounds like not much, but in reality MCG does play very differently, especially for forwards and defenders. I reckon if we put up the same forward line as we did last week, we'll struggle to score even 6 goals.

Fair enough
. I can see you’re more of a “binary” guy than me. What’s with the “peceived” comment? What have I missed? I didn’t think I made that typo.

I just like using it. I never thought you would resort to spellcheck, but nyway. I stuffed up there, too. :) I just don't think Young cuts it. Not a fan, too many mistakes and too often. I may end up wrong, but I doubt it.

Yeah surely assuming low/no cases tomorrow they can have some crowds in Vic this weekend?
They already said no, so that would be unlikely. But when you look at the situation objectively, I would say it would be a reasonably safe thing to allow. But that would mean other restrictions would need to be lifted as well, and Andrews wouldn't want to announce that until next Monday/Tuesday.
