Didn't he do some ligament damage not long ago?
Yeah, he missed last game with a knee injury but they never said what specifically it was I don think. Then he played this game and was hobbling the whole game. I'd be telling Melbourne * off if I was him. Dont mess with dodgy knee's, particularly as a big guy in the AFL

I don't know why they would play him. He could do more damage and impact finals.

I wonder what's going through his mind... also is Burgess still their strength and conditioning guy?

Burgess leftt, seems like given Gawn was clearly not ready either that they thought 70% of Gawn and Jackson together was worth it

Yep big reason why they lost. I didn't realise he left. Sports science is critical. Could bring Melbourne back to the pack a bit if they don't manage their players better.

We have more players on our list that have won a final there than they do

Alphabet stadium only holds 21k with the reconstruction. I doubt they would even make us go there if we were to play them in Melbourne.

They’ll argue that Tasmania had finals last year plus GWS have had home finals with 22k. Just watch

They've done this every year for the past decade - play their best footy in July
That's true. It's always hard to trust Geelong. But, being a season with weaker contenders the stars very well may be aligning for them to Bradbury this one. There aren't standout premiership fancies this season. The only season since 2011* where they've had such a clear run at it without a favourite/favourite falling over before the GF was 2018 and that's the only year they shat the bed in July.

* I genuinely don't know what to make of 2020. I think that was a case of the 2 most experienced sides holding up in the most volatile season ever.
