    whatever happened to Shane Harris, the reigning competition best and fairest ?
    We don't seem to hear about him these days.

    ^^ Correct. Been doing a lot of work off the track and had a run with the 2s on the weekend. Will be terrific if he can get up and running and into the NEAFL side for finals. We'll just have to see how he fares in the next week or 2.

    I know there's been a bit of carrying on about their soft draw but they have done well without a Mulroney medalist
    for majority of the year. I'd be putting my house on j. Bennett winning the Mulroney

    Not a bad bet. He would average close to 40 disposals a game and has hit the 50 mark on one or two occassions this year. Although the Mulroney is always tough to pick.

    that's also true, especially when brabazon got 3 votes in a game where he got tagged an had 8 touches. but he is still my bet!

    Harris is in for Belconnen, and Jarjoura is out for Ainslie - these are two key players who will make a difference to the latter part of the season.

    Tri colours V Belco should be a ripper. Tri colours definitely have finals experience on their side. Hard to pick a favourite

    I reckon we might have a tipping competition for the finals - mostly Eastern, but roll the dice on Northern finals as well if you want.
    Same rules as we've had all year......none !

    Wait til the NEAFL posts the fixture for next week and I'll get back to you all.

    Never saw many games this season, but they were hit hard with serious injuries pretty much from the getgo and the playing depth did not reach as far down as it has done.

    Last season they got that bit of luck you require to win a flag, this year they did not. Thats football.

    Also heard that Belco players will not be getting paid for the finals. Budget has blown out due to Kippax cost.

    Anyone else heard this?

    Been away from Canberra for a few years, how things change....

    Ive heard similar ABH - Was chatting to a Belco Support staff member who also mentioned they have been asked to forgo all of their payments for finals, or at least take a small % of their standard rate, and it was their understanding the players have been asked to do the same. Tough gig recruiting players/staff when the contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on....

    Empty Ne$t.

    What is the general consensus of footy in Canberra going forward? Will the 4 NEAFL teams survive. How can we fix the next tier - AFLCanberra?

    Reckon survival has to be tough for my beloved Tigers with only 1 club to provide funds. Chook and Co do a tremendous job with sponsorships but given the current climate and the need to continually think outside the square to generate income you wonder how long they can sustain the NEAFL status TBH.

    My mail says belco hadn't budgeted on making the finals. Gee they do things very differently up there. Heard it hasn't sat all that well with a few of the troops. Not the kind of issues you would like to be dealing with this time of year

    I'll keep going with the tips Justa:
    Belco
    Eastlake

    Saw a fair bit of the Tigers this year and they would be kicking themselves at some of the loses.
    The 2 against Uni were very disappointing.
    At times they payed the type of footy that won it for them last year but the injuries/exits/retirements just were too much.
    The back-line of last year was a very settled one. This year for a majority of the time the only constant was Klemke and Kirkwood, a 22 and 23 year old with both less than 100 senior games and not key position players. The loss of Roy, injury to Bryce and Swan hurt a lot and Quade ended up down there to cover.
    The mid's were good, at best, with Stevens a standout all year. Griggs, Atkinson, Conroy, Jennings and Jolliffe had some outstanding games but were un-sighted in others. Dickinson out with a knee was big as well. Irwin has the heart of a lion but is just too small against the really big boys. Kerlin is just starting out and does do a lot of good things.
    The forwards were hit the hardest with Kav out for a long period. Ben Klemke and Quade work hard but needed a lot better delivery. Fulford was a good pick up and again Stevens was probably our best forward all year and it will be interesting to see what happens with Kane in the off season.
    Many debuts again (something the club has done really well under Kade) and the future is bright.
    Will need to recruit a few for next year, with the changes to the comp it's going to be a lot tougher every week, which I personally can't wait for.

    Good luck to all teams and as per usual, want anyone else but the Swans to go all the way.
