Rd23 v Port Adelaide.

Doesn't feel like we're playing for a finals birth but that's the reality of the situation. Win and we're in. I think we're a good chance with Port having nothing to play for.

Last ever game at AAMI for them mate. Reckon they'll want to leave on a winning note. Favourites IMO.

Hopefully we will be fired up and keen to atone for last Sat, but even so I would tip Port unfortunately. A win for us would be a long shot.

I know some will feel that it doesn't matter how you get there as long as you do.

I don't reckon that we deserve to be there. Forget the Essendon saga, we haven't done enough to be there. Don't get me wrong, as much as the media are bunking up North Melbourne, either have they, and the other so called hopes, Crows, Lions and Eagles, deserve to be there even less than us.

Essendon will rightly get the Tijuana Brass because of their infractions. But they have been a better team than us all year.

For those who want to say, well that's coz of the drugs, I urge you to read Doctor Reids letter, which condemns in the strongest possible terms, Hirds use of these drugs, not only coz they may be illegal, but because they don't actually work. And he stresses that the use of the players own blood, which all clubs do, works a lot better.

WE have so many weaknesses in our team due to a lack of key position players, that in some ways, it's remarkable that we are where we are.

Another reason I don't want us in the finals, is because a clean out has been virtually promised by the Coach and CEO, and if we make the finals, albeit by default, that may cloud the issue and reduce the desire to get rid of the players that we know need to go.

If Essendon were stripped of points 2 or 3 months ago we would be 8th and no one would think anything of it. The AFL took their time to strip the points to avoid all the dead rubbers.

The team has to make a game of it, if anything for all the Blues supporters who live in Adelaide. their last showing against the Power at Aami was pathetic and embarassing. So they have to come to play just to atone for that performance.
Have taken my lad to 6 games so far and have only won one.

There's a reason no documentation exists. If you believe all they took is AOD you are somewhat naive there Bignic.

Why would they take their players to secret locations to get injections that don't do anything?

And they know they are playing finals so Hinkley will have them up and about after last weeks debacle. Big challenge for MM to get our boys firing at AAMI in a last round that may amount to nothing.

My 5 cents worth -

In's - Kruesrrr, AW, Garlett, Carcia
Out's - McClean (Inj), Scotland (Inj), Warnock, Joseph.

Thought Duigs at least had a crack, he should get another chance...

My 2 cents, heavy loss coming up and season over and done with (thank fark). I reckon Sat night killed their confidence and will be empty this week. Ins will be irrelavent. Norf will come over the top if they win coz of their %.

Port are going to want to win. why? Momentum and confidence going into the finals plus it's the last game at footy park.

If the Blue boys don't show up mentally, I agree it could get ugly. But knowing our inconsistent form we'll probably win this one.  ::)
