    Meh, don't agree with the Grand Final day medallion rule anyway. Should be like other sports where if you play a certain amount of games during the year, you qualify if your team goes on to win it.

    Mainly for gun players who got their team into the GF, or on top of the ladder, but then went down with injury. Without them the team wouldn't be in the GF perhaps, so they should get a medal.

    The argument for Davis getting one was "the 2nd GF couldn't have happened without the first" (to quote Gerard Wheateley), but surely that counts for players who go down in a prelim. Imagine if Hayes (who saved the Saints many times during the season) went down in a prelim. If the Saints somehow won, for mine he's taken he deserves a medal.

    Obviously not many would agree with this as its not the AFL culture, but still think it's a better method. Leon Davis not the best example of why this should occur, as he is a unique example of someone so **** in GFs... but Presti would be a good example. McEvoy another (if Saints had won last week).

    22 Premiership players come out of a year not 23. So stupid by the AFL.
    Oh I agree it should be for the 22 on the day, but if anyone from the Pies outside the 22 deserved a medallion, it's Presti, not Leon.

    It happens in rugby league as well. In the EPL, it's a minimum of ten games, but I think reserve goalkeepers are usually exempt, but I could very well be wrong.

    Yeah, either everyone gets one or no-one does. This ruling makes no sense.

    Will stop spamming this thread soon, promise!

    Did think three or four times through the finals that he'd dislocated his shoulder or similar after he went down like he'd been shot after coping a knock on his arm.

    Alright, will move conversation on. With the replay, trade week is upon us immediately. What do people want their team to do this week?

    Very little. Have a real worry Rocket will try to prop us up to have one last dash next year and it'll backfire horribly. Expect us to lose at least two of Everitt, Hill and Stack - would rather keep the first two.
