Remember when the AFL brought in this ham-fisted rule?

www.afl.com.au/news/2013-10-18/no-more-mass-changes

So, my reading of the rule is that we can rest our players if they are 'fatigued'. Still, I wouldn't be surprised if half our team comes down with periostitis this week.

Pav got subbed, so obviously he needs a rest. Sutcliffe's shoulder popped out, so he'll need a week off. For at least some of the game Spurr was hobbling. Did you notice how we were having to rest Mundy at full forward?

Did anyone else notice any niggles?

They changed that rule again...

Management of player fatigue is now permitted.

All that rule did was legitimise what Roly did in 2013. It specifically says you can do what you want provided you aren't manipulating the draft or ladder positions heading into finals. Roly didn't do that, so all was sweet. Same deal now - letting Port win won't impact the finals series one iota.

How would the WAFL view this scenario. I wouldn't mind betting that the powers to be won't allow a depleted Peel side to take the field next week if it compromises the WAFL competition.

Seeking approval from the AFL seems a bit OTT. Why wouldn't you just lie?

1. Fyfe (shin) - 1 week
2. Pav (scabies) - 1 week
3. Walters (a touch of the vapors) - 1 week
4. Mundy (catata fish) - 1 week
5. Sandy (Carnitine-acylcarnitine translocase deficiency) - 1 week

You get the idea. Seriously, what is the AFL going to do, ask for stool samples?

I see that Port Adelaide are at 1.25 and the Dockers at 4.00. There you go.

Rather than rest ten or so guys, why not play Sandi, Mundy, Hill etc for Peel. This way they don't need to travel but get a little bit of match fitness.

It would've been less controversial if at 3/4 time today, Ross put up on the whiteboard the MRPs list of acts that receive an automatic one week sanction, and allocated each player one accordingly
