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 .
