Fremantle coach Ross Lyon will be disappointed if there isn't more than 10,000 fans at Fremantle Oval for tomorrow's final open training session before Saturday's grand final clash against Hawthorn.
Lyon conceded today that grand final week was far from an average preparation and hoped the players would enjoy it but not get distracted.
"By definition, it's not a normal week," he said at his weekly press conference.
"It's grand final week, this presser looks a little big bigger.
"There's the Brownlow tonight.
"We have the parade over there.
"There will be media attention and even the families and kids flying over on the plane will be slightly different.
"So there are some distractions potentially, but we are professional enough.
"Then we'll have a really big training session, I'll be surprised if there isn't 15,000 people there during the week.
"I'd be disappointed if there wasn't more (than 10,000) to be frank.
"I've seen that many at the Saints. I'm sure we'll see it here.
"There are some differences there that we acknowledge but what is important is not to be distracted, just focus on what you need to do, which is preparation."
Lyon didn't want to buy into the debate about Fremantle wearing their white, clash strip for the decider.
"Clearly the club executives made a decision based on the facts," he said.
"I am not fully equipped to answer it and I think it would be remiss of me to explore that."
Lyon said he had been unaware about 4000 members missed out on tickets to Saturday's game in the ballot.
"There's a bit I take responsibility for but I'm not going to take responsibility for that," he said. "I'll refer that to (chief executive) Steve Rosich.
"We'd love everyone to have a ticket. There's ways and means."
Lyon said it was nice not to have injury and match review panel worries leading into the biggest game in the club's history.
"It would be a distraction, we've all seen reports during grand final week, it's not ideal for the player or the club so there's none of that for both clubs," he said."Obviously (Brendan) Whitecross is really sad to see an AFL player go down with an ACL and miss a grand final opportunity but we all move on and we'll just focus on those that are available."
