The game was never a chance of getting the go ahead at the Gabba. You can’t have a football game on a pitch that will be hosting first class and test cricket.

Brisbane can use the Richmond decision as a basis to play the game at a small qld ground. Afl can’t say no.

Apparently the curator was confident it could be done. Clearly he was the only one. 😂

I think he went rogue. Should have stayed stum.

If the pitch got damaged and wasn’t fit for purpose come test match time cricket Australia would be roasted. No way they were taking the chance

43 minutes ago, whatwhat say what said:

surely they'll just name the grand final to be played at princes park, regardless of participants?

They've already said Marvel if it's in Melbourne.

I think Brisbane would be hard pushed to get a home GF given the unavailability of Metricon and Gabba.

I just wish they’d name a ground, any ground really. Or at least a day (Sat or Sun). I know we have to wait until we find out which two are playing in order to adhere to the home-ground advantage thing (which has already been compromised, anyways) but it’s ridiculous that 16 (or 17?) days out there’s no definite plan.

Unlike the men, most W players have jobs and need to plan around that. As do the fans.

If we make the GF we have members who’ll be going regardless of where or on which day it’s being held (incl. if interstate) but geez it’d be cool to know in advance. Personally I’m moving house at the same time so a lil heads-up would go a long way.

That said, if definitely in Melb, my guess is Marvel, which has been mooted since the beginning.

I'm going to be the devil's advocate here.  They need to name it Marvel and be done with it.  Melbourne and Brisbane both finished equal top of the ladder, with only .3% separating them.  Brisbane have already hosted a grand final, they have also already won a premiership.  Given the fact we missed out on seeing the men win the premiership in 2021, it's about time we were looked after for a bloody change.  And if the interstate clubs want to plead "bloody Victorians", let them - we've been [censored] on too many times, and we need to fight back.

Seems like scheduling ignorance or perhaps hope that it wouldn’t come about. I guess who’s responsibility is it to ensure this situation doesn’t come about? It’s definitely not the the GABBA or Metricon, they have every right to push forward with their own events. So surely it’s on the Lions and/or the AFL to make sure should this situation comes about. 

This job though them trying to make CA look like the bad guy for them wanting to hold them to their obligations of ensuring an international standard cricket ground. 

Does raise the stake a touch for us, win and we get a home grand final.

This one I can tell you, Sunday 27th November. I hope if we win through the powers that be decide it will be in Melbourne. If so Marvel seems the best choice for all involved, we’ve never played there so in theory the turf is neutral, and it’s the best location for fans to get to. Plus there is a strong Fitzroy following in Victoria evidenced from our finals loss.

We have played there. On a couple of occasions. I remember we beat the filth there one year.

We should be using the best umpires available in the final series, it is looking more like Rafferty’s Rules. The throws are so blatant it looks like the umps have never played footy.!!!

It’s really strange, there are some rules that they seem harsher on (allowing opportunity to get rid of the ball) but then don’t punish rules the incorrect disposal enough. 

Something I love about women's footy though is they throw the ball up so quickly for ball ups. Keeps the game in motion as much as possible.

The date is still yet to be announced. At this stage it’s either the Saturday or the Sunday.

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 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
