Grand Final preferred start time 7.10pm or 7.40pm

Perhaps NorthPort can set this up as a poll, but I'd like to know what the fans think about Grand Final night - 7.10pm start or a 7.40pm start - what would your preference be?

Personally I'm a bit worried, I think they've done a good thing in reducing the time between the TAC and VFL games, but 7.10 is very early on a Friday night. Will people from Ballarat and district be keen to drive down on a Friday night?? They will have to leave work early if they do.

I'd prefer 4.45pm TAC Cup and 7.45pm VFL. Thoughts?

7.45pm start will be far better.

No rest for the wicked.
We might have to catch up with all the Casey crew at one of the picnic meetings in the summer.
