Best-of-three grand final push won’t go away, says Caro

Caroline Wilson says the push for a best-of-three grand final series in the AFL isn’t going away.

Speaking on Sportsday, Caro said the idea was being championed by outgoing Sydney chief Andrew Ireland and had support from other clubs.

She said Adelaide coach Don Pyke approached the coaches association after the Crows lost the 2017 grand final to Richmond, telling them to push the cause.

“This story had a lot of legs until Collingwood lost to West Coast in the grand final,” Caro said on 3AW.

“If Collingwood had won, yet again, the higher ranked team would have lost to an MCG home team on the MCG.

“That would have really empowered the non Victorian teams.”

Caro personally doesn’t believe they’ll be successful with their push.

She also revealed the blockbuster deal that will keep the grand final at the MCG until 2057 had only just been signed.
