GAME DAY - Round 23

238 posts in this topic

The final round of the season was once the day upon which the fate of many players was finally decided.

However, I suspect that these days such decisions are already made well in advance and the club's (and in some cases, the players) mind has already been made up. The fate of many has been signed, sealed and delivered.

The past month has seen a different mood among the players from the very top down and pronouncements from the coach about the players and their history and of the need for the club to go to "another level and acquiring talent from rival clubs" suggests that we are about to see another exodus of the not quite rights and I suspect that many are aware that today marks the end of their careers at the club, and most likely in the AFL.

Sadly, if the last month is anything to go by, we can't even expect them to give it their best shot which is, of course, the ultimate vindication of any decision to let a player go.

Jack Watts, a late inclusion, dominates the game and sets up five of Hogan's seven goals.

Now you're being silly.

While most would see this as a junk game and nothing to play for... It might give us an insight into the players mindset. Both young sides, you would think the more committed professional side will come out all guns blazing and take the 4 points. Another note I wouldnt mind jumping up to 13th ahead of the Saints!

I'm so excited for this game that I've organised to do my tax return at 1pm.

If we lose big and Esendon have a big win we could lose a spot couldnt we?

Might be worth the effort for an improved draft opportunity maybe we should rest a few like North and Freo?

There's nothing to say any player who gets dropped from a team list can't fight his way back if he's determined enough. The problem is that Nev is more the exception than the rule.

I think it's fair to say that we will be saying farewell to more than Daniel Cross today.

I was thinking of taking my dad to today's game for a fathers day present but decided to get him something that will make him happy instead.

This is the sort of game where Melbourne are typically insipid, and the usual crew are happy to accept another loss, citing the usual excuses.

I expect today will be more of the same.

Giants by 30

That's a joke, right?

Actually, our draft position is potentially plummeting by the day with Kreuzer and Leuenberger likely to be picked up as free agents and the AFL giving Carlton and Brisbane compo picks ahead of us.

We've struggled against quick teams this year so I can't see how we can counter GWS today. If it were at the MCG I'd actually be confident but if G-Dubya play their cards right they could/should win by 8-10 goals today.

Either way, we're going to end up with a pick somewhere in the 4-7 range.

Decided I am going today, looking through the website can find no details of premium member information, do we get an area to watch or a room to gather, anybody know the details?

Hope this isn't too negative but I feel the MFC take our money and couldn't give a hoot once they've pocketed it.

i think premium members always get a reserved area at etihad (check with club)

also club announced that all memberships with reserved seating can sit on level 1 aisle 36-38 (on the wing)

Thanks DC would nice for them to provide that info on the website. Or maybe they did and I can't find it.

Actually if I had read my emails I wouldn't have needed to ask that question, seems apathy is spreading from players to members. See you all there?

Thanks god it's the last round of the season.

It will either be another insipid performance or the boys will show some fight.

Hopefully it's a fight but I'm not holding my breath.

To finish the season with with a win would be good but unfortunately I think the season will finish in a whimper.

But hey on the positive side we will have another full preseason of all the team telling how well they are going at training!!!

This season seems to have dragged on and on.

Glad to c the end of it.

I think we're a big chance. No Mumford tips the scales in our favour.

Not in my experience dc. My Trident membership gets me in but I have been asked to pay extra to get a decent seat.

Anyhow all irrelevant today as I'm going to a family function and doubt I'll even watch.

However,he lads will probably have the TV on in the cinema at Romsey Manor.

I got the subscriber service when I moved back to Japan. Sadly, it was for our game against the Doggies when we got pantsed.
Usually, my inlaws come around on Sunday and we have lunch together. If I can manage to slip out a little early, I might catch a bit of it.
I'm feeling a bit like the others to be honest. Glad the year is over but in some ways, I'm a little sad. 6 odd months without footy lay ahead.
