the ffa have acknowledged that they made some oversights - mainly in that nobody expected glory to get through round one, so having them in the final creates a massive challenge when they are hosting it on a tuesday night - time difference and the logistics of the operation come right into play. the last thing they need is a 1am finish like our quarter final against the hype. next season they will be playing the final on a weekend, which will be better. there is nothing that can be done now about this season.

and for all the spuds that are saying they should have picked a neutral venue.. well, jesus. that would be great for the 12 melbourne people that showed up to watch a match between adelaide and perth.

Probably the best post you'll ever make. Time to hang up the boots and go out on top?
