    Anyone who thinks a club wins a flag because of a draw is delusional. They won. They were the best team in 2017.

    Geez people are hard to please.

    We could have done the same with the same advantages and at the end of the day that QF should be at SS. You got gifted a home final

    Unpopular opinion from a Crowie.......Richmond deserved that flag.

    Wanted it more than us on the day and in reality had a very decent season.

    They've played one final there in 120 years. Why all the complaining now?

    Mate the complaining has been going on for years. It's the only thing I feel sorry for Geelong about. Why they don't stand up to it I have no idea

    Seeing as though my thread got removed (without reason) I will move the discussion here.

    I believe either North or Gold Coast will be relocated to Tasmania in the next 5-10 years.

    Speaking as a Tasmanian, we don't want them :p.

    Agree though.

    Adelaide were minor premiers, You were not top of the ladder in 2016. They had to fly to the game & play in a hostile venue. You guys did not. Yes it was a great win but not the same as Adelaide's treatment. Richmond played at home with all that advantage.

    Then you could argue that Adelaide only finished top because they had that advantage more often than Victorian clubs who split crowds weekly.

    It's such a weak and sooky argument.

    Of course it is.

    It flys in the face of the VFL mentality. How dare someone question the fairness of top side playing an away game for a GF.

    In no way could you begin to call it a neutral venue for any non Melbn team. Its worse now that many of those sides play games in Tasmania, ACT, NT FNQ & even less at the MCG then ever before.

    The same can be said for the home and away season, clearly giving those clubs an advantage every home game.

    You can't have one without the other.

    I think any sane person would rather have their ground as the GF venue. The advantage is obvious.
