No matter what happens- Geelong has clearly been the best team in 2022 - in my opinion of course.

Often the best team in the year does not win the grand final. By all means have an end of year knock out comp (which is how I view finals) but the team that is consistent across the year amd finishes on top is clearly the best team.
But the H&A fixture is so compromised and can be argued inequitable.

Yeah - nothing is perfect - still gives us the best side - particularly as top 8 from previous year play each other twice. Still prefer it.

Except in the game that counts.
A bit like in the premier league, sometimes interest can die 3/4 way through the season. Leave it the way it is…..every fan but fred says so.
There are lies, damn lies and then there are ratings.
Rugby league, Australias most popular game in some of North Eastern Australia.

Yes, I’m a minority that’s for sure on those views.
