Richmond played 5 games in Victoria, 4 at the MCG, Port have played 7 in SA. Not a massive difference hey?Agree. Would port be first if they had to basically play all their games away from home like richmond and geelong. Almost certainly not.
all finals should be in the queensland hub.
7 is more then 5 and geelong is even less than 5. the difference in ladder positions is determined by 1 and half games. Also those 7 port games gave you home state advantage in all of them. Thats not the case for richmond and geelong Who played neutral games in theIr couple of home games. Not to mention all of ports 7 home games had crowds. None of the victorian teams home games did.
Sa is about to open up to NSW without quarantine. NSW people are banned from QLD. Ergo you would have to think SA will soon become banned from QLD just like the ACT did.Unless this is an AFL specific rule, people coming from Qld to SA do not have to quarantine at all.
Cos most of victorians 17 home games dont have home state advantage. Its pretty obvious.Its quite funny that the "home state" advantage is being raised this season. I dont see any Victoria clubs fans whinging about having to play 17 out of 22 games in Victoria in any other year. This year is a complete anomaly. Yeh Port have played 7 at home, but Adelaide played 10 - how does that work?
West Coast played 7 in a row at home didnt they? Victorian teams have been away since Round 6 or whatever it is. The point is, every team has suffered, some more than others. It is what it is and not much can be done. If Port and Bris finish top and they are allowed home finals in their own state they 100% should get to play them at home (which they will be)....
So more games at home isn't a big deal?
Does that Port poster realise you played 13 games at the MCG last year and Port played 12 at AO?So more games at home isn't a big deal?
Is this a general thing, or is it one of those things that only applies this year?
and just to confirm, playing at home, and having a genuine home ground advantage...how are they considered again?
I get confused by all these moving goalposts.
Port have earnt the right to host a home final and can do so in Adelaide. Ditto to Brisbane. Under your model, where do Bris host their final? In Perth or Adelaide? Cant give them "home state" advantage.Cos most of victorians 17 home games dont have home state advantage. Its pretty obvious.
and yes it is what it is. So all finals should be in queensland To make it as fair as possible.
home finals should only exist in years where the home and away is location allocations are fair. Thats not the case this year. How much advantage does Port want?
WC played 5 (6 total including round 1) - which is why it was farcical Nth/ WCE game couldn't be scheduled in Perth.West Coast played 7 in a row at home didnt they? Victorian teams have been away since Round 6 or whatever it is. The point is, every team has suffered, some more than others. It is what it is and not much can be done. If Port and Bris finish top and they are allowed home finals in their own state they 100% should get to play them at home (which they will be)....
Yeh right - got the number of Perth games wrong for the Eagles. Point is, its near on impossible to make it fair this year, and i do think the Vic teams have probably had it toughest, but i dont think it has cost a team a shot at the top 4 or even 8. Its not like Essendon would have made top 4 if they got to play another 4 or 5 games in Vic.WC played 5 (6 total including round 1) - which is why it was farcical Nth/ WCE game couldn't be scheduled in Perth.
Port play more games at AO.
Adelaide played Hawks at AO in Hawks "home game" a week later.
A lot of Victorian teams played almost as many home games before leaving Victoria.
It would have financially helped the Roos and AFL in a year they are sacking a lot of people.
But no... a couple of Victorian coaches didnt like it.
The only clubs that have really benefitted this year are Brisbane, GC and Adelaide.
Totally agree Port should be able to play any finals they can at AO though.
Yes, It is actually. 6 (assuming you've played crows there) vs 0 is a fair advantage for Port regarding HGA.
there is no highest ranking team in a grand final.We'll play our home finals in Brisbane if you allow grand finals to be played at the highest ranking teams home ground from now on.
Yeh didn't think so.
The team that didn't lose a final already? Seems pretty straight forward that onethere is no highest ranking team in a grand final.
if the team that finishes 1st loses to 4th in the first final but then both teams make it to the grand final. Who is the highest ranking side?
Even though they finished 4th after 22 games and the other 1st? One game undoes 22 rounds of ranking?The team that didn't lose a final already? Seems pretty straight forward that one
You're a Richmond supporter FFS. How much self awareness do you need to lack to pick on other teams getting an unfair advantage in finals?Yes, It is actually. 6 (assuming you've played crows there) vs 0 is a fair advantage for Port regarding HGA.
How many of the Tigers 4 games at the G had any home ground advantage? Hey? What was that I cant hear you? Speak up, Oh, What! you're actually not even joking, you're saying "NOT EVEN 1 HGA for the tiges compared to 6 for port."
Oh ok. thanks for clearing that up.
You'll be shocked to learn that all 4 of Carlton, Hawks, Melb and Coll are all MCG tenants.... Waits for excuses....
"Yeah But but but"....No buts paps.
You've been kissed and touched tenderly on the genitalia. We've had ours surgically removed, yet are still ploughing through to the g spot.
