Last game for the year. Only four more quarters to get through.

I would go:

Out: GHS, Dawson, Murdoch
In: Rankine, Martin, Joyce

Dew seemed pretty excited having watched Rankine play in the 2s live on the day. Said the discussion would come up to see if he's done enough fitness wise to get through.

Agree, GHS out - not sure why he played today. Joyce replacing Dawson sounds also good. Murdoch was ok first half then disappeared. I would not play Martin if they know his decision (I assume they do).

This will be a Beautiful Famous Victory to get our spirits right up again over the Beautiful GC Summer.
Love this positivity mr bods..
Why not? Why can’t we? We’ve copped our fair share of spankings, but we could have also won 3-4 more games that we let slip. All isn’t as bad as it seems.
But picturing a win against all odds... King, Graham, Rankine in the middle all getting the gatorade shower.. king and luko see the light at the end of the tunnel and re-sign in the week following the game.

Hoping we can finish on a positive note.

Think there has been plenty of positives this year.

These guys have clearly had their best years of their careers
- Fiorini, Ainsworth, Ballard, Macpherson, Bowes, Sexton, Brodie, Powell, Weller, Witts

Swallow played a whole year without major injury

Young guys King, Lukosius, Graham, + maybe Rankine made their debuts and each showed something.

We got in Collins, Burgess, Corbett who each showed some ability to be AFL or at least good depth players.

Think it is quite clear who the bottom 5-6 or so are - hopefully we can replace them with some good talent for next year.

Not a fan, but if they going to get delisted at least give them a farewell game.
Nutting - Dawson.
Corey Ellis - Ghs
Leslie - Graham
Young - Murdoch

Fair well games are for players who have contributed years and years of dedicated service, people like Rischa and Harbs, not players who have only been here a year. Actually wouldn't mind Youngy get a game over a few others as well.

Hope Rankine gets the nod. Would love to go to the game and be excited by something.

Would like to see Weller play a game primarily in the midfield, and move him off half back.. just for something different. Play Lemmens off Half Back, Or bring Joyce in to play his role. I know both arent great options but I just want to see something a bit diffferent.

Spoke to Rankine tonight. He wants to play. Sounds like Dewy is tempted based off his presser.

Lid in serious danger of coming off for our final game.

Aside from the fact it would be great for Rankine to get a game it would also be a rare marketing success by the club! Supporters who are cooked and only waiting for 2020 will come out of the woodwork to see their future and at this stage, loyal, star player. I'll be there to see him for sure and so would a lot of others. Last game and would be good to go out with a win against a struggling Giants - we can live in hope.

Rankine gets named, we get our hopes up, get a larger than bigger crowd, then......

GC with a late out, Rankine has been 'managed' due to the long season.
I can fair dinkum see that happening given how we are going atm.
it's not beyond the realms of possibilities true
