You're wasting your time, dopplegangerStadium Australia is not a viable option anymore.
NSW clubs are scheduled at the most appropriate stadium in NSW - it was SA, but now is SCG or Giants.
VIC clubs are scheduled at the most appropriate stadium in VIC - this is the MCG.
WA clubs are scheduled at the most appripriate stadium in WA - Optus.
Only time when a VIC final wont be at the MCG is if all 4 finals are due to be scheduled in VIC in week1. Then the game with least anticipated crowd demand will be shunted to a smaller stadium.
All a team is entitled to is having the AFL scheduled a game in your state.
Taper is not attempting to have any discussion about this in good faith.
Taper doesn't care what people say in reply, no matter informative, no matter how convincing their argument is.
This is just grass-roots campaigning (rabble-rousing) to convince people that Victorian teams deserve to have their "home" ground advantage in finals just like the non-Victorian teams.
A noisy contingent of Geelong fans started squealing about this ever since their stadium was slated for an upgrade years ago.
It was no surprise to me the thread-starter was a Cats fan. I knew it before I even opened the thread.
Some of these Geelong folks don't care about finals tradition, nor getting the most number of paying spectators along to see the showpiece games. What they want is a magic carpet ride on their "cheat ground" through the H&A season, through September, all the way past the Prelim Final (next time they finish in the top 4)
Weak as piss. Handbaggers.
