Do we Need a 5 game GF series?
TBH I have never much cared for 5-game series, but have tried to see others' points of view.
Personally, I feel like last night should have been the decider. I got the feeling that Melbourne got too dispirited too early, and maybe that would not have happened if they didn't know they had Sunday to turn it around. Frankly, I think Perth did exactly the same last week in Melbourne.
If Melbourne keep the series alive tomorrow, I really don't want to wait another bloody week for the decider.
Whilst we have in the past seen some gruelling finals schedules, for me that was part of the challenge. How good is your bench? How deep can your players dig when they are exhausted? 2 weeks to decide a GF is a joke.
I can't imagine how fans of other teams, trying to maintain an interest, must feel
