We'll call it a day there folks. Thanks everyone for the questions and comments, and if your team is struggling, hope they can turn it around for you sooner than later! Have a great Easter, and we'll see you back here at 12pm Easter Monday if you're around!

 

Discuss the footy issues that matter to with The Age's voice of the people, at noon Monday.
