    Dusty is an interesting one - First it was a corkie, then a really bad corkie the bled into his knee a bit, now I'm hearing rumors that it may be a knee injury as opposed to a corkie. Will be very interesting to see how he comes through. Dees vs West Coast will depend on how well the Melbourne back 6 deal with the West Coast Forward line. I think Melbourme's midfield has it all over West Coast and at least match if not surpass their back 6 with our front 6, the Kennedy/Darling/Rioli/Ryan/LeCras/Cripps front 6 is arguably the best in the AFL and will provide plenty of problems. If we can create pressure through half forward and the midfield casuing turnovers before the can get the ball to their forwards and at least impact how good the delivery is I think that goes a long way to winning. I'm hoping we see Harmes spend some time on Yeo who has been instrumental in driving West Coast forward without Gaff.

    I think the outcome of the free-kick tends to matter more in terms of perceived bias. Both the below the knees calls led directly to goals for the Hawks which will tend to highlight those calls more so than maybe missed push in the back or a missed holding the ball call in the centre square.

    The atmosphere at the Dees vs Cats game was incredible. 91,000 probably a good 70% Dee's fan (Thanks in part to the heavy Dees lean of the MCC). I'll be there again as they take on the Hawks. Big hopes for this squad.

Kardinia park, like Subiaco was and to a lesser extent Adelaide Oval are all longer, but narrower. The SCG is a weird one; much shorter.

    Tassie is a great place!! Carlton don't have a competitive advantage anywhere right now From what I saw - Essendon play the G better than Marvel Stadium. Who are your squad?
  7. Australian Rules Football -- The 2018 Finals are upon us!

    True, But I'm also pretty sure that neither fan-base minds that. I know plenty of Carlton fans who would much rather play at the G. Geelong is really the only fanbase I've heard complain about it, which I fully understand.

    To be fair, he may be right. The only team that has "home" games moved to the MCG are Geelong and it usually has more to do with capacity and membership. Geelong will almost always end up (shhhhhh Voluntarily) moving their home games vs Richmond and Hawthorn to the MCG because it means about triple the revenue for the club. It also means that more of the 63,818 Geelong Members have a chance to get to the game given GHMBA holds ~36,000. In fact despite this Friday's game being ostensibly a Melbourne Home game the crowd I'm expecting will be 50/50 if not slightly tilted in Geelongs favour.

    The narrative between Melbourne and Geelong is amazing too. Played twice this year, both games decided on a single kick just before or just after the siren. Hopefully it's third time lucky for the Dees.

    I am. But I live in Melbourne.

    Naaaah, I mean I get the reasoning, but it's a fine line to start charging people for incidents that happen in a professional sports environment. Can't wait for next week. Melbourne vs Geelong I've got my ticket.
