Stop being a flog. Punt rd is your training venue, not you home ground.
So because the Cats train at Kardinia Park, it’s now only their ‘training venue’? Your logic is flawed.

Again if I use your flawed logic, the Tigers don’t train at the MCG, ergo it’s not their home ground.

But wait, how can the MCG be the Tigers home ground when it’s the Magpies home ground? And how can it be the Magpies home ground when it’s actually Melbourne’s home ground?

LOL

Geelong plays at least 7 games a year at the G,so they should be familiar enough with it.It would be a sick joke for Richmond to play at Kardinia Park in a final.You would lock out 40,000 people and imo the ground is not worthy of a final.
Who gives a **** who gets locked out.

Grand Final locks out 100k people. Stiff ****. Pay more for the tickets or try harder to get one. Entitled much?

AFL BOUNDARY DIMENSIONS

Ground - length - width

MCG - 161m - 138m
Firstly, what the AFL should do is make the MCG 160m x 140m. If the AFL can't round up and down then we've got no chance of progressing as a game.

Secondly, knock all venues down EXCEPT for the newly adjusted MCG. Rebuild all of them to same dimensions as the new MCG and call them MCG1, MCG2, MCG3....

Only then shall we have a truly uniform playing experience with no advantages to any side.

We should also do away with uniforms actually. Home side plays in white, away side in black.

I have a few other suggestions for the shape of seats on the bench and colour of laptops in the coaches box but they can wait.

Do you suggest we decrease the width of some soccer fields as well if the team wants to build a grandstand or poker machine venue.?

Richmond had lost 6/8 Finals at the MCG before 2017. You think we should blame the ground for that too?
How many years did it take for them to clock up 8 finals?! 15 or so, I'd say?

I'm talking recent history. I genuinely believe that Kardinia Park is an unfair advantage like a lot of football people.Most oppo players that play there play there for the first time.How is that fair?
Then the AFL should start scheduling all home games there so other teams get used to it.

'82 Grand final loss was the 8tH match in that streak. 1 win in 95, and 1 in 2001 were our only wins in that time.
