Im Each way on this topic

YES
I think at times too much emphasis is placed on spectators and not the players
Home ground finals makes sense, a well deserved home ground reward , for higher ranked teams

NO
However from a spectators view point, suburban grounds might be uncomfortable for some barrackers
I speak mainly of the elderly and incapacitated
BIG crowds might mean standing room only for those who would normally be seated
There are a lot of mature aged long time supporters of clubs that may not go to a suburban ground if they are not seated
Adelaide Oval has everyone comfortably seated

before getting clubs to discuss this i think its best to discuss it with the local councils, some of which are the most deplorable in the revenue raising stakes, this includes the council where the Adelaide oval is

Exactly councils make a heap of money on game days

1973 ELIMINATION FINAL

NW 7-7...13-8...20-11...23-13 [151]
PA..2-1....7-3.....13-6...17-13 [115]

This game was played at Norwood Oval
Norwood finished 5th PA finished 4th in the Minor Round
I was at the game
17734 was the crowd
Dunno how  we all fitted in , I had a grandstand seat that day as well
Port were a bit stiff having to play at the Parade

1973 FIRST SEMI FINAL

NW 3-5...8-8....10-12...13-12 [90]
NA 5-0....8-4....11-11...13-17 [95]

Also played at Norwood Oval
Norwood 5th played NA 3rd in the Minor round
I was at the game
17749 was the crowd
Dunno how we all fitted in , I had a Grandstand seat that day as well
I think number 10 for North did something special late in that game ?

These were the crowds for the 1973 finals series
17734 NW V PA [NWD] ELIM
26803 ST V NA [ADEL] QUALI
17749 NW V NA[NWD] FIRST SEMI
34140 GL V ST [ADEL] SECOND SEMI
34495 NA V ST[ADEL] PRELIM
56525 GL V NA [ADEL] GRAND

The lowest crowds were at a suburban ground by a great deal
NW + PA have large suPORTer bases as well
Had NW V PA been at Adelaide Oval I would say the crowd might had been doubled ?

Back in 1973 it was a no brainer to play finals at Adelaide Oval [and Football Park soon after]

In 2016 onwards it seems that playing at suburban grounds is a realistic option
