Nothing to gain form a win, can't change anything by losing.

Dead game for Essendon so why risk injury, even with the week off?
Nominally they can gain a home EF but yes, as a practical matter GWS aren't losing to Gold Coast on the weekend. More just it leaves a bit of a bad taste in the mouth. At least the Ashes is on at the same time, I guess I'll be 80% Ashes 20% footy tonight.

Pretty good move from him, perception wise.

If the Dees rebound into the top 4 next year then he will be able to take some credit for turning them around and getting them developing properly. If Melbourne stink well, that problem was already there before he arrived.

RoMa is $41 to lead us in votes. I know his a ruckman and new to the scene pretty much but given how good he has been and the lack of standouts I think those are crazy odds. He would only need about 12 to get it I think.

He's got a bunch of coaches votes but never big numbers, I think he's mostly been outside the best 3 on the ground. Still worth a flutter though!

No chance.

Max Gawn was a tip to win the award and got pipped for most club votes by a guy who only played half a season!

Billings or Ross IMO

Melbourne Demons need to toughen up mentally, so in this respect, Richo is a good fit. Not abrasive like McCartney, but old school enough to get their feet back on the ground.
