Good look for something they spent $1.6bn on, neither of the home sides want to train on there.

I tend to agree. Great player, but a lot have similar records.
Someone said earlier its become a bit of a participation award.

So does he just slip straight back into the side the week after against the best defence in the league? That's going to be a tough ask.

I'd say he'd be 50/50 to play against the Cats, at best.

Magpies play Sunday so only a 5 day break before Geelong on the Saturday night. Having said that, the week of the Cats game the Magpies have the bye so he wouldn't get a third SANFL game in until the week after that.

50/50 at best.

Does that figure include $4500 match payments on top?

Just did the 2019 AFL fans survey. Do the results ever get published or analysed? I imagine the AFL would get smashed on some of the questions.

All the more reason to manage him cautiously IMO. You are looking at total career games not matches this season.

Geelong 2 games and % on top so clearly will finish top. What's the go this year with their home ground for finals? Do they get them all at kardinia park?
