Went to a VFL GF at Princes Park back in the day and the place just had no soul or atmosphere to suit.
Yep. If you want to get the suburban atmosphere have it at North Port. Hate Princes Park as a ground, there's only one worse suburban ground set up in the VFL and that's at Punt Road.

With us getting the double chance for finishing 4th, and assuming we lose in the seniors, who can we safely assume will be eligible to come back and play in the VFL finals series eth-dog?

If we can get a handful of guys back then that'd boost our VFL stocks significantly. Would love to get over the top of Richmond having just missed beating them twice this year but doutful we can again without reinforcements at VFL level.

So it depends on who plays what week. In a sense, we're probably better off losing to Richmond because it would allow someone like Zac Clarke to qualify if he plays both weeks. Of the seniors that played the last game we can get 7* playing finals in:

Gleeson, Laverde*, Begley, Ham, Hartley, Clarke**, Jok

*Must play week 2 of VFL finals
**Can only play one more AFL game

eth-dog eligiblity only mentions H&A games numbers, I don't see what you mean about Clarke, Clarke and Laverde?
It's about how many games you play before your senior club runs out. Zac Clarke, if he plays the next 2 games, will have played 6 VFL games. Dylan Clarke has played 11 AFL games, and to be eligible for VFL finals it's no more than 12 AFL games. averde, if he plays one more, will have played 6 VFL games.

Also this is why I complained about Laverde being held over for the Footscray game. He plays that and he's qualified.

The eligibility I've read specifies H&A though
I would've thought
Z Clarke & Laverde out (if they don't satisfy 6 h&a VFL games)
D Clarke is in (less than 12 h&a)

It does but it's a little deceptive. A few years back (can't remember which team or player, maybe Geelong?) a team went out in straight sets above and one of the players had satisfied the rules during H&A but then played the 2 finals and was deemed ineligible, so that's where I get the Clarke thing from, and if it's true in that instance, why not the reverse?

It does say there's a discretionary power, perhaps that was/could be called upon

What are your thoughts on who wins the Liston Yoda? I think Myers will be up there with his second half of the season, Woodward wouldn't surprise, nor would Mitch Hibberd.
