What would happen if Hawks decided to rest / throw their last game, drop to 4th and play us in preference to playing Toast?
Would they do / prefer to do this with the bonus of resting players?

What would the integrity of the game police do?
However, I think hawthorn would try to avoid Freo at Subi like the plague.

Because of the "Lyon rule" 2013 they can't be seen to do that. We get away with it (dumping players) because neither us or port can change positions or influence the result of any other team.
Also they know they can beat the slime over here, I don't think they would want to play us after having half our team waiting invite sidelines for them.

You know that the Hawks play Carlton right?

Hard to tank that even with a "B" team.

Hawks will be praying they don't meet us 'til the GF. They think they have it over us at the 'g. If they are thinking like that, karma has a way of going
" OOPS, Oh dear sorry 'bout that"

Sydney are in the same position as us with regards to being able to rest a few players aren't they?

Yes, but would they sacrifice the extra chance (and give it to Richmond) - doubt it.

However, if the OOFTITS really believe they can dump us at home with their umpires/supporters(easier than they could take on Hawthorn), it's not beyond them to throw their final game against the Deaf Cheats - they would consider it a home final with the chance of a week off.

Thing is polly the OOFTITS will also get to stay at home for all their finals appearances win lose or draw, should they stay at no.2s and we win our QF.
;p

Doesn't the same apply to us, should we lose our first final and the Slime wins theirs?

If Hawthorn is game enough to tank and go for 4th spot, that would suit me fine, much rather face the WeePoos here in the first week...

At season's end RL's mantra doesn't change.
Anyone Anywhere Anytime.
Port should be wary Peel is coming to haunt them.

I like to think that a loss to peel could haunt them for a long time and if the boys hunt them on Saturday it could happen.
I just hope Freo can be competitive.

Don't forget Polly Sidanee will get to see Friday nights result and may make a decision to rest players if Norfs get up.
