Just saw the finals fixture and St Kilda are playing GWS at the MCG. Wtf?
Game should be at Docklands as it's St Kilda's home ground.
It's not like any fans are going to get locked out at Docklands.

St Kilda hosting a home final at the MCG is akin to if Brisbane were made to host a home final at Carrara, if GWS were made to host a home final at the SCG or if Sydney were made to host a home final at Giants Stadium.

Do you think the Saints should be playing at Docklands?
Or do you think the AFL have made the right call?

This is always an interesting debate, of course it comes up a lot for Geelong supporters. For me though, I think what we would want is much time on ground at the G preparing ourselves to move forward because if we end up facing the Pies, Melbourne etc - we'd want to be as ready as possible.

If you wanted to post a thinly veiled melt thread about Geelong not getting home finals at Kardinia Park, you could have just led with that and not pretend the thread is about St Kilda.

Finals are always at the MCG. Geelong always plays at the G and not at KP. Ditto for Marvel Stadium tenants.

Playing a final at Marvel or GMHBA will never happen

Yeah genuinely ****ed over here the Saints

They play at Marvel and I think they go in favourites where as the MCG not so much

Pretty ridiculous but I think the same thing happened to the Dogs v Adelaide a while back

Not sure how they justify a Geelong home final ever again
