2014 Finals Venues

VFL official site has an article about final round equations, stating that if Footscray finishes second, its home final will be played at Whitten Oval.
The article prompts the reader to go on to see prices for finals matches.
Unless a fence is installed at Whitten Oval, how will charging for admittance be done?
If it is free at Footscray, it would not be fair to charge at the other lead-up finals.

Good call cobra but I bet the AFL club gets its way.

A temporary fence will be erected if Footscray win this weekend.

What a joke that finals will be played at a ground without a fence. Temporary fencing is crap. The game should be played at Williamstown whether the dogs come second or third as they have no permanent fencing.

Well hopefully Williamstown are also offered a home final should it finish second. Fair is fair if the Dogs are offered a home final for finishing second.

I can't see Richmond beating Footscray in a fit. The dogs crushed Richmond in the opening round. While it won't be a slaughter I still expect the dogs to win.

Williamstown v Footscray first up final will create plenty of interest in the west.

VFA the Whitten Oval is now an open space that's why they don't have a fence. Similar to Victoria Park. Personally I don't mind them getting a home final if they have earned it. They had a stinker against Willy early on in the year so it would be a cracking game!!

If Footscray's ground don't have a fence then DONT charge and they might actually get a decent crowd. They will make it up with bar sales !!
