Big news from AFL
All other finals will be played at the venue of highest ranked team
(First time since 1995 no finals at Port Melbourne)
So it's NOT the VFL's favourite finals ground after all .
It's about time. !
We might be from the bush. but we ain't green
Hopefully Richmond won't rank as a higher team so games are not played at Punt Road
When was the last time Willy and/or Port did not make the finals ?
Disappointing, that there are no finals at Port. The ground has a great atmosphere when there is a decent crowd.
* It's time to restore the VFA name.
2001 Blackrocker and both only narrowly - Williamstown finishing in 9th position and Port in 10th.
Massive loss for Port Melbourne today, it'll take a great effort from the committee to find a way of making up the lost revenue.

THE VFLS MOST SUCCESSFUL CLUB - THE MIGHTY PORT MELBOURNE BOROUGH!
I'M PORT MELBURNE BORN, I'M PORT MELBOURNE BRED, I'LL BE PORT UNTIL I'M DEAD!!!
Won't be going to any finals except for the grand final if Southport make it. The sharks only non afl aligned club in finals. If Southport can beat coburg which they should and Casey beat Brisbane then Southport host Brisbane next week. Win that then they host preliminary final. Think they can turn recent form around and make it through. No interest in watching two afl reserves teams playing.
I'd prefer the finals at Port. Great viewing ground and the surface is immaculate now. Ikon Park has no atmosphere and should have been blown up years ago.
There is a change the GF could be an all Qld show. Sydney & one of the Queenslanders could make the VFL an non-Victorian GF. If non Vic teams face of in the GF there will be ample capacity at Ikon for spectators..
I saw Brisbane against the Zebra's last saturday, I thought Bris was pretty slick and the one to watch. I did not see a Casey game this year, so hard to judge their GF potential.
Casey could easily choke. Southport v Brisbane gf would be far better than two AFL teams.
