Only 22 played.  

23 should have,  but only 22 did 

But under AFL rules it's a match counted for all 23 Rd players having played or not. 
 Years ago Smithy  did not use a20 th player yet he is in the Melb team as  flag winner. 

So clearly JJ gets his ring and deserves it.

As a disabled person i never got to play Sports. I had to watch. Did i ever get a Cup or Flag, nope

That’s Life.
 

The 23 who went out to battle and did the Job get the acolades. Those that didn’t strive to get better 

Like to have seen them do it on their own...they didn't and that's the point.

Without a strong list, many of those who played in winning game to get us there we fail.

The season is more than just one game...it's a season.

Anyway, won't argue any longer otherwise I will get your 'Lord' impersonation.

I see it a different way.
Those Players who didn’t play in the 23, should be hell bent on aiming to make a GF. The 23 who did should be honoured by the Club. 
The game is ruthless and tough, nothing should be handed out, accolades must be earned and the 23 deserve Life Membership 

The game is ruthless enough as it is.

Im more with @pewpewpew- why are we doing this at all so long after the win. Dining out on past glories is literally complacency.

Don’t know why, but when I listened to Kate Roffey talk at the B&F about the Committee room dinner and presentation of the rings, I didn’t like it. Whether it’s the timing (it’s last seasons win), the exclusiveness, or the American thing, I can’t put my finger on it.

What a strange thing to organise well after the premiership particularly after it was earlier revealed that there are members of the team felt isolated (perhaps too strong a word) by not being a part of it.

Less focus on bling and more focus on wins Dees.

This!

It has always been the best position that the 23 who played on GF day deserve to be acknowledged and this should, inter alia, include being on the team photo forever, being on the ground at the end and receiving a premiership medallion.

It has always been the best position that those who didn't play but contributed to the team's success, be it players who either played in the 22 in at least one match or trained with the squad, on field support such as coaches, runners, physios, doctors, trainers, water providers etc, should also receive some form of recognition as contributors to the teams success. This could take the form of a ring, special certificate, inclusion in official photo of the club or some other momento.

Personally, I like a ring that can be worn with pride and fellowship.

I have two questions.

1.  Did Simon Goodwin also receive a ring?

2.  If so, will there be any ring-kissing from fringe players trying to break into the side?

probably no more so than normal

however i believe all rookies are to take their turn in washing his feet

I see @Rhino Richardsis now beating his head in response to my posts.

Clearly a case of self loathing, as being unable to use a keyboard or speak after so many years, must be a really tough gig

By all reports Jayden wanted to stay at the club but was "encouraged" into Free Agency.  Meanwhile Luke Jackson gets a Premiership ring.

Probably because he played and made an impact on the outcome of the grand final

Luke Jackson reaped a heap of benefits from being in the 23, like I posted earlier- playing the game, the medal, the dias, the photos, the lap of honour. He deserves all those things and he deserves an MFC ring, but I also think Jayden deserves one too because he got none of those other things but made a significant contribution to the flag.

Put it this way, if I was Toby Bedford trying to make a difficult decision between an MFC offer and a GWS offer and I saw that ring segregation go down, my decision would be made - GWS where do I sign.

Yes - a clumsy response if this is how it played out. Especially after the May/Melksham incident.

The NBA rings:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NBA_championship_ring

"Rings are presented to the team's players, coaches, and members of the executive front office"

The NFL:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Bowl_ring

"The Super Bowl ring offers a collectable memento for the actual players and team members to keep for themselves to symbolize their victory"

If our Board is going to introduce some brassy American idea, they could at least do it the same way as the Yanks.

In the US the rings are bought by the billionaire owners - who paid for these?

All of the above.

I would just train harder next year.
You make it sound like Hunty and Bedford are the first 2 players to ever miss a GF. 
 

there are sad stories every year of unlucky players missing out

    RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the Demons are to win their Round 3 encounter with the Sydney Swans this week, then the frustration of last Friday night’s uncharacteristic performance against the Brisbane Lions cannot be allowed to live in the collective heads of the players.   What made the mediocrity of the first three and a half quarters of the encounter with the Lions so uncharacteristic was that it defied every aspect of the impressive months of preparation for the season the players underwent along with the

    FLAG DEFENCE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons unfurled their 2022 premiership flag early on Saturday afternoon at Casey Fields and commenced their campaign to earn the honour of back to back champions in 2023. They did so emphatically beating Footscray by 37 points in a contest they dominated throughout and, but for some wayward kicking for goal early in the piece, they could have determined the issue a lot earlier in the day than during the final term when the Dogs finally hit the wall. The Demons were forced to make

    DARK NIGHT by George On The Outer

    A pleasant, balmy Brisbane evening with perfect conditions for football turned into a bleak, dark night in more ways than one for the Demons on Friday night at the Gabba. Coming up against a Lions outfit which had been truly cut to shreds by Port Adelaide the previous week, with the Demons having accounted for the Dogs emphatically, it was reasonable for the droves of Melbourne supporters to expect to witness more pain being inflicted as payback for their loss to the same team in the previo

    The Demons had no answers for the rampaging Lions and were trailing by 40 points when a power failure turned the lights out at the Gabba. When play resumed the Dees clawed their way back but it was too little too late and they eventually lost by 11 points.
