AFLW Grand Final Venue



Recommended Posts

Shambolic. Assuming the weekend of the GF was known when the H&A draw was released then all competing clubs outside Victoria should have been told to nominate and secure an AFL standard ground at that time if they wanted to host it. Not an issue for Victorian clubs as the AFL own Docklands Stadium. 

That’s so sensible and logical that it’s no wonder the AFL didn’t think that way. 🙄 

They’re clearly comfortable with making [censored] up as they go along. This entire season has been taxing and so the thought of not being able to attend really bites. And not just for us fans, but for the players. Attendance isn’t great at H&A games as it is, so I imagine they’d be sadly lacking support in QLD.

  • Demonland changed the title to AFLW Grand Final Venue

Just gotta hope Adelaide win tonight. If they do, and we win tomorrow, the GF will be on Sunday at Marvel. If Brisbane win tonight it’ll be at Springfield (wherever the hell that is). This sucks so much.

I would have thought they had a vested interest in promoting the AFLW game.

Seems getting a small advantage (home), no crowds, minimal atmosphere and no corporates is the priority.

Hope Adelaide do them.

Devil’s advocate : 

Brisbane finished top and earned the right to a home GF if they make it. With the Gabba and Metricon unavailable, they’ve lobbied hard for the next best option in their home state. 
If the same scenario was applied to MFC, where the G and Marvel were unavailable, I would expect our club to also lobby hard for the next best option and keep the GF in our state. 
Springfield is a ****ty inadequate venue and it sucks for the spectacle of AFLW, but it’s the Lion’s prerogative. 
Go Crows. 
CARNA****INDEEEEEEGRRRRLS!

I dislike the Crows AFLW team but I sure hope they win tonight

And in terms of venue, if a suitable venue was not available in Victoria, and I don't consider Casey is appropriate for AFLW grand final, I would acquiesce to play inter-state. Inter-state mens teams play the granny at G so no reason why it should be any different for AFLW. The Lions should understand that as well

For starters we have to win tomorrow then if Brisbane win tonight we travel out to the south western suburbs of Brisbane. Any supporters coming up will need to hire a car or get a train out to Springfield. Its a bit out of the way however should this happen then this family will take a drive out to watch the Dees live. As with most of you be good for the Crows and us to win then we get the support in Melbourne this side needs. Be lucky to get 50 of us up here in Qld to go out to Springfield.

Couldn’t agree more.

The argument that Brisbane get a “home” grand final for finishing on top would be all well and good if every other ”rule” of the comp was observed. But they’re not.The AFL are cherry-picking what should be adhered to. For example, in Round 2 North were told at the last minute that their game vs. us was being moved to the MCG as curtain-raiser to our men’s match. That meant North W fans had to shell out for tickets for the whole day’s program. Was that fair????

That’s awesome that your family can get to the game should it be played in Ipswich. The girls will need all the support they can get. But I’m thinking of some Demon Army members who are so dedicated and give up so much of their time (and effort and money) and have done for the whole seven seasons but who simply can’t afford to fly to Brisbane a month out from Christmas. Had this season not been sprung on everyone with bugger all notice these diehards would’ve been right since they budget for any and all interstate games. What a way to be rewarded for working tirelessly for our Club and in particular our W team.

There doesn't appear to be a thread for tonight's game. I'll start. They cannot be fair dinkum with these non- holding the ball decisions. Brisbane getting the rub of the green big time.

So infuriating.

But they really should be three goals up anyways. Jess Wardlaw a little sloppy.

The umpires non call when it was clearly holding the ball allowed Brisbane to kick inside 50 and receive a 50:50 free and convert.  That’s the quarter time difference, a free kick.  Hopefully over the course of the game it evens out.

I've been watching the game RTG ( and I know we've discussed this previously) but I'm certain the umps deliberately ignore all but the most blatant in order to keep the game flowing.

The appeal of the sheila's game is its pace and constant play on. I reckon this has been recognised and is being encouraged by keeping the frees out of it.

I remember BBO. I guess the umps have a different interpretation of blatant to me. But I think you’re right.

    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
