Could’ve , Should’ve and Would’ve

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

Last weekend’s Round 14 of AFL Matches proved a season series defining  moment for many clubs . Many loyal fans have to face the uncomfortable truth that their beloved team , just won’t make the 2012 Finals .

Others , particularly those who follow one of the  six teams , jostling for that coveted eighth spot , keep hoping . Many watched a disorganised St Kilda team , relinquish the tightly held eighth spot,  to a determined NMFC . Speculation again abounds about hiring and firings in the senior coaching positions , of several underperforming AFL Clubs .

Fans endure much for the love of their team . Miserable weather , hopeless public transport  , overcharging by the AFL , posturing by the League leaders , and the  shrinking of their beloved football jumper , jersey , guernsey after a season of pie and beer. Sledging by rival fans is usually accepted  good naturedly , and adds to the jocularity and  enjoyment of the match .

A blockbuster is planned on Friday night at the  ” G ” , between league heavyweights Carlton and Collingwood . Its footy,  anyone can win .

AFL League Leader Collingwood , resisted a fightback by Freo on saturday to win  , and maintain top spot on the  ladder .To use AFL commentators language the Pies are ” up and about ” . Carlton on the other hand , are ” under the pump ”  , experiencing a six loss losing streak , and were beaten by an impressive Hawthorn on Friday night . Ugly rumours have again resurfaced about Brett Ratten’ s coach’ s position  being under threat .

The Western Bulldogs also continue their losing streak , and the Tigers went down to the Crows in Adelaide. The battle of the Coasters , West Vs Gold Coast , achieved a predictable result with the West winning . Likewise the Sydney Derby served up the predictable result of victory to  the Swans.

 

Today sees the unpredictable Saints , play the even more unpredictable Kangas , the Lions host the Demons , and  Cats challenge Port at home .

Fans are being treated to fast paced footy action . Many are wearing their much loved football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys and getting along to support their teams , win , lose or draw .
