Default AFL Final Richmond v Adelaide Crows

First time in 37 years I'm actually looking forward to watching the final.

Reason being I think this one will probably have a decent atmosphere and a very close contest.... Unless Adelaide gets the jump, which could well happen.


The Richmond army is in for one hell of a surprise me thinks with 30K Adelaide crows fans coming over. I wouldn't be surprised if the atmosphere in the ground is actually weighted towards Adelaide. I do realise only 17K can get in but those Adelaide fans are the closest thing to UK type support you get in Aus.

Yehp this years AFL final is actually worth a close look.

Hi Ozzie! People sometimes say there is little atmosphere but any final quarter when scores are close can be tense at any game.

The beauty of AFL is the scoreboard is always ticking over and a team can come from behind (well behind) several times in a quarter and you need a huge buffer in q4 to guarantee a win.

The scoring system rewards accuracy as in soccer : its just that soccer scores don't count the chances towards points.

I was delighted for the Doggies and equally delighted for Richmond. 2 good series.
