Not sure it is the time slot that makes a difference!

Comparisons to the 'night' games of 2020 and 2021 figures, aren't really vallid as they both had all Vic teams and Victoria was in lock down with a metro night curfew! 

Why are 2022 the lowest of all time:

  • Beautiful spring day, other things to do
  • Two smallish teams with one from interstate
  • Neutral fans didn't care
  • People have gone off football during the covid years

Hopefully, they don't use the unusual circumstances of 2020 and 2021 to change the time slot.

Had about 30 people over and watched the game on one tv.. last year they would have watch it on their own. Probably another reason. People going to pubs and stuff

This is funny. But when Perth Police tweeted this about us after the 2018 prelim I was ready to burn their headquarters down. 
Don’t worry, @Ethan Tremblay, I would’ve given you the heads up so as you could pull a sickie that day. 😁

Good chance I probably called in sick that day anyway WCW, but appreciate being thought of before committing arson.

Not necessarily.

The only way to leave the members is to scan your card to get out .  Will the MCC be smart enough to do a search of those who took leave passes and check timing of the scan.  ?  Maybe?

The system will have that info. 

I spent the 3rd 1/4 not watching the game and came back to my seat and the area was only half full. Plenty had left by that time, me too just after start of last.

Very limited atmosphere for a GF IMO.

You can just leave without scanning out. You only need to scan out if you’re planning to return.

I know a few people who got a ticket in the ballot, knew that they wouldn't be allowed into the ballot next year if they didn't go yesterday so they went to the G, walked through the gate and went home. 

Yeah but they would have had to scan there card to get out so if they just left and didn't come back the MCC will know

No.  At Gate 2 The only turnstile to leave without scanning, which is open around 3/4 time each game, was padlocked closed on Saturday. With security only allowing staff in and out withour scanning.

Completely agree. Also because these teams have been successful over the past 20 years and everyone is sick of them! 

But the media will use this narrative to change to twilight next year for sure.

The praise of Scott and Ducker Selwood on the AFL website, calling Scott a ‘genius’ and Selwood the greatest ever Geelong player is nauseating. So they beat Swans on a day when the Swans didn’t turn up to play and had stage fright in the GF. Whoopee doo!

The TV ratings for this game should put to bed the lie that Sydney are the most supported team in the competition:

https://www.afr.com/companies/sport/afl-grand-final-a-ratings-bomb-for-channel-7-20220925-p5bkt9

How is it that barely 300K watch "their team" from NSW in the GF , when supposedly they have 1.2 M "supporters"  across the country? And that assumes the NSW viewers are Swans supporters.... oh yes, Roy Morgan think so:

Love the Cat's mad Monday theme

On the TV ratings it strikes me that the Friday holiday has provided the excuse for many to exit Melbourne thus further reducing the viewers.

Under 400k viewers in Sydney is amazingly low...Swans have been there now for over forty years

And aside from that Sydney are so freaking smug, in players faces with 'toughness', pushing and shoving etc They deserve to be smacked down.

100% agree and Tom Papley heads the list.  So sick of the Sydney champions, always compeditive [censored].  Not so compeditive in GFs (though I'd also love to have won a second premership within my lifetime).

I'm sure other teams supporters would probably say and think the same about the MFC, so I guess that's an opposition supporters right to have that kind of pejorative and perspective on the enemy.

    CHANGES 2022 Part Three by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro
