It was bad enough when we heard that the AFL would dig up a slab from the MCG’s turf and place it at the Gabba for the 2020 Grand Final

The MCG’s Twitter page last week showed photos of a three-meter-by-one piece of the withdrawing goal box, which was to be transported via a refrigerated truck to Brisbane All in a concern to keep a « traditional » aspect

The movement, sponsored by Rebel, elicited an immediate reaction Some were concerned about the possible use of their CMC membership fees Most saw no interest Why go to so much trouble to preserve some form of traditionalism in a game that would be nothing else?

How tasteless does it take to consider sending a small slice of grass nearly 1,800 kilometers north in a refrigerated truck to drop it on a piece of land that will remain mostly untouched?

The absurd publicity stunt did not receive a warm response, nor does it deserve one The soccer-loving public had to endure the corporate hype overcooked on fake grass to find out it wouldn’t have no real role in the game

Well, except for the Richmond players who run over it to start Bounding umpires could also put a foot on it at some point in the game

Unfortunately the AFL will come under scrutiny no matter what happens on this pitch If nothing more happens then it was a waste of time to get it back Other photos in this patch won’t do that aggravate advertising

The only way it could make a difference is if a player rolled an ankle across the seemingly unstable slab that would bring outrage to 11, and the AFL wouldn’t experience the possibility that this stunt could have affected the great end result

Of course, its pointless position makes the scenario highly improbable and not too worrying

Let’s be rather concerned about the game itself Tonight’s game will be a grand final like no other, played between Victoria’s two best teams of the year, but far from Victoria It’s history in become, and no matter who wins, this game will be remembered for many reasons

He might never get that chance again, so this Gabba fan was keen to make the most of the opportunity to return the ball to Geelong’s Luke Dahlhaus at the demarcation line Unfortunately, he made it an absolute hash

Geelong fans hope the result of the grand final sprint is an omen for the match itself, after Cat Jordan Clark won the 2020 sprint

Geelong’s rising star Jordan Clark assured the Cats would secure at least one Grand Final day win, with a win in the annual Grand Final sprint

It’s hard to know who to turn to in the opening quarter of the AFL Grand Final
