U would think with such a large break between our game coming(9days),that players listed as short term last week would become very close to available.

Of course it should be at the cattery, but LIKE all decisions in this mickey mouse comp it makes a mockery of "decisions" the AFL make.

one of many decisions they make, and then they wonder why people are losing interest in the game.

Tell ya one thing for nothing local footy is the way to go, first and foremost is the umpiring is so easy to comprehend!!
why should the game be moved just cos Scott thinks he has a better chance of beating us at Kardinia Park?
Contracts say a certain amount of games should be at the MCG, and a certain amount of games at KP.
And all teams, including the Tigers play home games away from home.

there are many reasons to complain about current state of the game, but not moving a fixtured game from its fixtured venue when there is no reason to is not one of them.

I think that is why the AFL are considering moving the game to Friday night....

they can use it to motivate their players
Scott to his players "the world is against us , its our home game not theirs
why are we playing those entitled pricks at their home ground
come on lets kick those pricks while they are down"

I am sure even the Cats players would laugh if Scott said "the world is against us".

Im not sure Scott said that, but maybe he did. It also is not so much "this decision" but a general gripe about the AFL. IF ( and i say IF) the AFL "wanted" to shift the game to Kardinia park, they would have easily justified their decision. Personally i dont care in reality, if yer good enough ya win anywhere. Its the AFL that give me the irrits

It's completely logical for this game to be played at Kardinia, and I have no problem with the Cats saying so, but I think we have to cut the AFL some slack at the moment. Organising the fixture is sounding more and more complicated as the days pass.

surely everyone will have to fly to QLD at this rate. Or season postponed.

I figure the original decision to play at the 'G was about Geelong wanting the crowd revenue, not unreasonable, after all, it is the paying customers who contribute to that and Kardinia Park full of Geelong members really gets them no extra revenue. Keeping the game at the 'G is probably contractual.

Money over keeping fans happy really is not a good long term strategy, but those at AFL House wouldn't know what strategy means, let alone long term.

Local footy does look attractive at the moment the way the game is going at the elite level, they really are making a mess of it.

Would our home game that was played at Docklands have been moved if no crowds were allowed? of course not.

Season postponed would be a blessing for us you would think.
Yep - Finals in October with a healthy list would be what the doctor ordered

with Dusty receiving back to back October Norm Smiths

Olympic events with no crowd,going to be real ordinary watching.

You kidding, actually getting to see sport, as opposed to drivel from the boring comperes, is a rarity in olympic coverage. 10 sports going on all the time and all we get to see is some background piece on the host city, a feature on the local cobbler in Tokyo or 15 minutes of drivel as they wax lyrical about some athlete. The olympics coverage is a joke anyway, 30 minutes of drivel for every 10 minutes of action.
