Geelong incredibly get 7 to 8 home games at Kardinia Park every year.It's a ground they play well, but it bares little resemblance to the MCG where finals are played.Is this skinny ground ruining their premiership chances?

No. They play plenty of games at MCG each year and they play it fine.

Imagine if Geelong got 13 home games like Richmond gets 13 games at their home ground in 2019...

Richmond will be exhausted from all the travel they'll have to do with their last 7 games this season.

Trivia Question, have West Coast ever played Geelong at the MCG in a H&A match? I'm thinking no. Are the 92 and 94 Grand Finals the only time Eagles have played Geelong at the MCG or was there another final some time?

Incredibly get? You think we should get less? None?
What are you smoking
I do think it's unfair to all the other Victorian clubs as they have to play their home games at the dockland or the G.

This is a legitimate thread, have a look at the stats. If you can have the thread 'Will Tom Lynch ruin the Tigers' up for 12 months, this thread is perfectly acceptable. Look at the Cats finals record at the G mate.
Mate we all know this. Seriously. Every year this happens. There is also a thread called ‘are Geelong unbeatable?’. This is essentially a sub topic.

There are more discussions about Geelong and their finals record than basically anything else.

But it’s their home ground mate! How is it unfair? I mean seriously. They have an average finals record since 2012, with you beating them comfortably in 2017!

What exactly are you expecting this to turn into? I’ll help you; a bunch of Geelong fans getting defensive and bunch of Tigers fans saying ‘you can’t play the G’.

How come you're not complaining about the Tom Lynch ruining Richmond threads? It's a farcical proposition.
