    The Other Preliminary Final

    I was thinking that if we beat the Eagles, then either the QB game or the Anzac Eve game is the GF replay next year ... should be bigger than ever!

    I didn't quite catch that Redleg. What did you say again?

    GF Ballot Barcode

    FWIW I think the 40,000 figure is pretty fanciful. The only way I can see a club getting even 35,000 tickets is if the other club is GWS or Gold Coast. For us, who would be playing Richmond or Collingwood, 20,000 seems far more likely.

    The SANFL Preliminary Final fiasco

    I see your point. I agree that the captain's count is outdated and needs to be changed. But I am also old-fashioned enough to think that it is about obeying the rules, and if you don't, the effect on the game is basically irrelevant. If you have more than 18 on the field, then it doesn't matter to me whether you now get beaten by 150 points rather than 100, or go from 1 point up to 1 point down. You pay the price no matter what.

    The SANFL Preliminary Final fiasco

    Mmm... be careful about automatically replaying the match. If a team is down by 100 points with 1 minute to go, what is to stop them "accidentally" having 19 players on the ground and thus forcing the match to a replay? The more I think about, the best option seems to be scrub the entire score if detected during the game. If it is only detected afterwards, as in the SANFL game, then it is much harder to adjudicate. It seems to be either punish the guilty club in some way (like fines or penalty points for next year), or declare them losers of the game, which could only be done if there was a clear rule stating this in place before the game, IMHO. I think it is time to revise the captain's count part of the rule ...

    Our supporter stereotype

    Just grin and bear it, and then chuck the shiraz bottle at them. If that doesn't work, follow up with a frisbee-style toss of the cheeseboard ... 😀

    Post Match Discussion - Semi Final

    Just realised that when Gunston hit the post from 10 metres or whatever that he was only one second or so away from being crunched by Viney. No wonder he missed!
