Re: ~~Official AFL 2012 Discussion Thread ~~ ft. GWS
Guerra and Mcglynn both officially ruled out of the grand final with hamstring injuries. Tom Murphy looking to be unlucky yet again, making away for the returning Luke Hodge.
I was hoping & praying that Schoenmakers would get banned for the stupid barge last week and miss out as there's no way Clarko's going to drop him regardless of how shit & stupid he is.
Has there been much reaction or speculation about Schoenmakers since the game on Saturday? Hopefully Stratton's been praised for his match saving tackle!

It is better but you can still enjoy neutral games anyway. I got into the Hawks just over two years ago when I started to watch it on ESPN because they were on a lot. They bombed in the first round of the finals though. Last year was a lot better though because I learned more about the team & the game too, plus I went out to Melbourne to watch a few games which are amazing live. It hurt big time losing in the prelims but that's part of supporting teams. This year it's felt great though and getting up at 4.30am or 5.30am like I'll have to this weekend for the grand final isn't a problem and all worth it, even if we lose.
