    You realise this is just because you don't see how excited fans outside Victoria get and your media doesn't cover them, right?

    So was wanting Crows to win for quite a while. Now we are out they are the only side I could stomach winning it from here. All the rest can get farked.

    We fly as one!

    I think I may have not made my point clear.
    Not saying other fans are not excited. I know Adelaide and West Coast have big membership numbers too.

    My pointis that the grand final is obviously played at the mcg and that Victoria has hundreds of thousands of members in the state. We have not seen too many vic v vic grand finals in the last 20 years. Imagine a collingwood v carlton.

    Imagine a port v adelaide grand final played in South Australia. I think that would be a little more exciting too.

    I suspect Richmond has not won a knockout final that was not at their home ground since before most of us were born.

    I want Adelaide to win now. They have not won it in almost 20 years and I don't think I could take how insufferable Kevin Bartlett will be if Richmond win it.

    Geelong or GWS preferably. I can't stand the other two.

    Each to their own but it will invariably be an anti climax. Loved how the 2015 NRL grand final ended in golden point.

    Lots of grand finals are anti-climactic. In 2010, we at least got a heart stopper before the anti climactic replay. Two grand finals is like two Christmases though; the second build-up, the scramble for entertainment; the added lols for the loser.

    If a game ever ends with a golden point (congratulations, you missed, you win), I won't be happy.

    Can't see Adelaide or Tigers getting through to the GF. The lack of match practise will kill them. Only reason Dogs won it last year

    On the contrary. Our small young forward line just doesnt have the strength to play hard defensive footy with the extra physicality of finals, without taking a toll on them. The breaks have been good for them.

    Yep bit different to NRL golden point where it's a legitimate scoring play to win. Or soccer.

    In AFL, it's just as likely to be a spoiled rushed behind from the goalsquare...not exactly a Leo Barry mark/Scarlett toe-poke/Chick and Hunter smother goal/Aka snap moment.

    I really want GWS to win because I've tipped them all year and I haven't had a premier correct for a while (think Hawks 2013 was my last correct tip).

    But Adelaide would probably be my favourite in terms of Betts, off-field stories etc.
