Grow the game by taking the grand final north and south

"If the success of State of Origin at the MCG is anything to go by, then a grand final would also be a highlight of the state’s sporting calendar" LOL Reckon the AFL Grand Final in Victoria might just be a bit bigger, not to mention the Melb Cup, Aust Open, etc.

andy12, Bitter much. Essendon & Collingwood jointly created this fixture, but they easily justify the annual match by their MCG filling capacity. The facts regardless of form or ladder position, since 1997 : Collingwood average home crowd 51.3K Essendon 48K Next best: Richmond 41.3K Carlton 38.7 The form teams: North 26K Bulldogs 26K. That's about half over 20 years compared to Coll & Ess. A 60-70% full ground does not do justice to the occasion, only the Pies & Dons can do it regularly.
