Another hoodoo to be put to the test
That's it for today everyone, some great questions and comments again, thanks for your on-going support of this blog, really enjoy it each week and hope you do, too. Some more huge games this week in terms of shaping both the top four and the whole final eight, like you, can't wait for it all to unfold with the requisite share of surprises, I'm sure. Have a great football weekend, and catch us back here at 12pm next Thursday.
Last weekend we witnessed Geelong continue its hoodoo over Hawthorn, courtesy of Tom Hawkins' heroics at the end of surely one of the greatest games ever played.
Entering round 20, another of the AFL's long-standing dominations is about to be put to the test. Collingwood has won its past 10 clashes against Sydney, and been victorious on its past six visits to Stadium Australia.
But the Swans are a different team in 2012 - evidenced by their ladder-leading status with four rounds remaining - and are surely best placed to beat the Magpies for the first time since 2005. And that was before Collingwood took the decision to suspend one of its stars, Dane Swan, for drinking alcohol in the lead-up to the game.
Can Sydney break the stranglehold? Were the Magpies right to suspend their star midfielder? And what of some of the other big topics in football - can Geelong continue its renaissance? Can Essendon stop its slide? And what sort of coach should Port Adelaide be looking for to lead the club out of the mire?
Chat with Rohan Connolly here from midday. Leave a question in the comments field below.
