    I'd imagine most professional sporting organizations don't go out of their way to needlessly reintegrate individuals responsible for systemic illegal doping regimes into their games.

    Gotta hand it to the AFL for thinking outside the box on that one.

    I know it's unlikely, but wouldn't it be great if the Eagles somehow made it to the last Saturday in September and Sam Mitchell played a blinder...

    Twice done for bringing the game into disrepute. The AFL are, if nothing else, an easily forgiving lot.

    I really don't have an issue if Hird presents it. Let's just move on from this saga.

    This Drinking Team has a Football Problem
    Not sure if the AFL have fully thought this through.
    80,000 - 100,000 folks who have been on the drink all day with the focal point of one of the biggest scandals the game has seen.

    The boos could be setting off Richter scales for miles around.

    Hats off the afl
    I applaud the step in moving on and to Hird for accepting it for the honour it is.
    Will likely cop some jeers but I'll be happy to see him present it
    Still a champion of the game.

    Over to you Essendon to get there on the day :p
    Jobe for Norm smith

    I think the boos from people at their tv's and pubs will echo that far too.

    Lotsa corporates at the GF...might mitigate it somewhat, although in my experience it's usually the privileged ****sticks that act the worst...
