It will be carnage.

Yep, it will be a very long flight home for a humbled GWS outfit.

Tyson reinjured his hamstring last week.

Pretty sure JKH playing will rule him out of VFL finals. Think he may have benefitted more from playing finals footy for Casey.

As I have said before Casey are Irrelevant!

I would really like to support the team by attending the game but don't want to spoil it for my kids on Fathers Day. I expect we'll lose (and by some margin) so better I stay home and watch it on Foxtel, besides I hate the Dome. At home I can watch the first quarter and turn it off once the game is decided (recently that hasn't been all that long into the match).

It's an important day to spend with your young kids and I don't want to be angry or upset. The result has nothing to do with them. But a miss-kick from Grimes or a weak effort from Watts will p^&* me off. Bound to happen so better not to be there or watch....gee I hope we can recruit some better players but this competition is just so fierce.

I did feel this way before the Cats game and I never turned the TV off that day...kids were happy I was in a good mood too

Wassup fella? You ok? Where's the passion gone??

I'm one tip behind the leader in my work comp but with a better points differential. I need to catch up one to win but don't know which rough to go. Either us or Cats. any thoughts?

Ironic that the last two games of the H&A season - after everyone's moved on to next week - will be the most exciting.

I actually went to the Bulldogs-GWS game last year under identical circumstances. Both sides threw the kitchen sink at each other knowing there was no tomorrow.

I'd love to see the same this year but our pattern of recent form suggests otherwise.

There's about 10 players in that team that shouldn't be getting games next season if we're serious.

If we pull off a win, would you like to list them for us on Monday?

Just for you!

:blink::wub::rolleyes:

Not as excited as me!

Ok I have rated this bloke for a long while

Without wishing to put the mozz on

1 He has a cool head

2 Silky smooth left footer

3 Plays taller than is

4 Shows no fear

5 Has run and carry

6 Reads play exceptionally well

7 Loves sneaking forward to snare a goal!

Start salivating!

In fact I haven't been this excited since I saw Jane Bunn last night doing the weather report in that beautiful pink dress!

Sub bench for me Watts, Newton, Nev and take your pick!

Of course they probably won't line up in the positions named...but surely, as named, that's the most inexperienced half forward line for Melbourne since about 1859.

It's pretty ugly isn't it

'grim' and 'bleak' are two other words that spring to mind

huge injury list though, I would make 8 changes straight up if everyone was fit, is the only saving grace

Wow the opportunity to break the Etihad curse.

An injury stricken GWS team.

The chance to finish the season with 7 wins and let Demon fans enter the off-season with a smile.

Farewell a legend in Cross.

GWS by 50 points
