    I enjoy watching Geelong more than North, I'll go with them. I think we're a very good chance with either of them.
    I knew him as a gentle young man, I cannot say for sure the reasons for his decline
    We watched him fade before our very eyes, and years before his time

    They were never going to be. They did very well winning all those games but Port were always going to belt them today.
    Today's a draft of your epitaph

    North aren't in the same stratosphere as the top 5 teams. In terms of pressure, last night's game against Essendon looked more like bruise free circle work!
    Those who have the greatest power to hurt us are those we love.

    Not sure if this is the correct thread for this, but I saw on TV last night (Ed & Derm's lovefest) that the AFL were giving 20% off finals tickets for this game (at least I think it was this game).

    Why couldn't they do that in Sydney if they are so concerned about the numbers turning up to Finals here?

    Saw in another thread (Prelim Final Venue) that this has been covered.
    Apologies everyone

    20% off is for semis not PF.

    I should engage brain before putting fingers in motion.

    My point still remains if they want numbers up in Sydney.

    In Melbourne they could have 35-40K for each team, making a total of 70-80K. In Sydney they could have 35K for Swans and maybe 10K for a Melb based team.

    If the tickets are too expensive for locals I would imagine they would be even more expensive for anyone that needs to travel to Sydney. I'm not expecting many would come. Probably, only hard core supporters for both clubs.

    Not really fussed. Whoever wins out of the two will be the better team.

    I think we will do exceptionally well to top 50,000 against either the Cats or North. We only got 57K against Collingwood a couple of years ago, and that was with huge hype and a real 'revenge match' feeling. Plenty of North or Geelong fans would not come up, on the hope that they can will be off to the Grand Final the week after. From a numbers point of view, Geelong would be the far preferable opponent, as they have plenty more fans in Sydney than the Norf Ferals.
