Yes It's finally happened!

Well it was always going to eventuate,But it's now finally happened the first afl Interstate Grand Final is finally a reality.With Triple Consecutive Champions The Brisbane Lions aiming to match the Collingwood football Club in Immortality of a record 4 in a row Flags.
The Lions meet the Port adelaide Power finally in a Grand Final after so many years of dominating home and away football for the past 3 seasons.Well how do you feel about this?As A Victorian personally It does'nt worry me at all,It was always bound to happen and I don't mind either of the Finalist's anyhow.
Goodluck to both!

I'm hoping against hope Port will win it, and their stocks will have improved with the extra day's rest and no injuries coming out of their match with the Saints, while Brissy has injury worries galore.

Shaun Hart looks gone after being poleaxed by his team-mate Bradshaw.
Craig McRae also looks gone with his back/hamstring problem.
Alistair Lynch jagged a quad.
And time will tell how Jonathan Brown's knee and Luke Power's concussion come up through the week.

Either way, it certainly won't be the cakewalk everyone was predicting after the Lions' over-rated victory against a young Saints side clearly suffering from stagefright up at the Gabba in week one.

i dont care a less about two non vic teams being there. its the AFL which means its an australian sport. they are by far the best two teams in the comp and they should have been in the grand final these past two years instead of that filth collingwood.

i want Port to win it also, i think they deserve something for the past 3 seasons.

will be kind of sad for players like Stevens. yes he wanted to leave but still, would have been nice for him, francou and primus to win one with port.

brisbane are clear favourites, but they'll have to play better than they did against geelong if they want to beat Port.
