All further grist to the mill on how even this finals series is. And may or may not influence the non-argument around 'the pre-finals bye is destroying/boosting [Team X's] finals series' tosh.

Sadly a derby Grand Final will need to wait for another year. On the plus side, we have the previous holder of the longest Premiership drought to play the current holder of that dubious title.
We also pit the two alternate titled teams together as its /SMFC vs /FFC.
The table shows not much, other than Geelong went bad enough to finish a spot further down. Eliminated Eagles get bumped up to third.
But really, its all so close from 3rd through to 6th.
