You could be right that there is pressure to select him. However I would be very concerned if Macca didn't at least have right of veto if he thought it was the wrong move for either the player or the team (as distinct from the club).Gordan has said many times that we are trying to get a full house to the Brisbane game and even the players have been told to tweet #gatherthepack to build excitement and get as many people as we can to the game. 100's maybe even 1000's of tickets have been given away for free to the community to inflate our supporter base for the game.
With the odds drifting out to $3 dollars for us to win at home against an interstate club and our captain injured things do not look like they are going to plan.
What this does mean is that Stringer is a certainty to play if he's ankle is OK. The decision won't be Macca's on that selection.
