    I can't understand why it was ever going to be considered otherwise. Whoever they play it should get pretty full and create a great atmosphere.

    If its against anyone else other than Sydney.

    The AFL would be fools to allow potentially 30,000 people in a northern state to miss out on attending a final...oh wait...the letters AFL are in that sentence

Although, they haven't been there and done that just yet. Purely for vengeance, I'd rather take Down the dirty Hawks, and then see perhaps the doggies finish the job in week two. How sweet that would be.

    You're right, but it depends, as it always does with the Hawks, on the umpires.....Karma doesn't appear to exist in the AFL/VFL.

    That would be ok too I think.
    Geelong will only get Kardinia Park if the MCG and Docklands are booked.

    In answer to the first question, I'd prefer Hawthorn in Melbourne. Go down there and sort them out.

    That means any home final swans get will definitely be at ANZ too and not SCG no matter who the opponent. Effectively neither GWS or Sydney get a home final but a home state final if they finish 2nd and 3rd..

    We're locked in for a Sydney home final at ANZ Stadium as things stand (but) we're not locked into GWS home finals at that venue," AFL football operations manager Mark Evans said on 3AW.

    With regard to the surface I would hope they have been paying attention to the wings, given they have only had square field games on there this year.

    So GWS gets a proper home final unless it's against the Swans. We don't get a proper home final regardless?

    Its only a contractual issue which will be complete after this year. I too dont think the swans should host a final at ANZ.

    But i agree that a great way to say goodbye to ANZ As an AFL ground would be a sydney derby final.

    It would be a disaster if GWS was forced to host a final at the SCG.

    Oh Barry we knew we could trust you for one last piece of ridiculous hyperbole about ANZ!
