[quote=thebloke][quote=digs][quote=thebloke]Yep beaten by eeerr Box Hill ???
. with 17 Hawthorn listed players
. a yellow and brown jumper
. called the hawks
. singing "we're a happy team at Box Hill"
. with 2 Hawthorn directors on their board
Give me a break - at least be consistent - they are as much Hawthorn as Bendigo are Essendon.
Other than that they were the better side on the day against our 14 VFL listed players and deserved to win.[/quote]
What happened to the 12/10 rule ???[/quote]
If I supported Port Melb I would ask if Box Hill cheated....
...but no, I was wondering the same thing so did some digging and have found out that Box Hill asked for a rule change regarding the 12/10 rule not applying against BB during the final series and Shawb and Hook agreed to it.
As usual though they didn't tell anyone.[/quote]
Please Explain !!!!!!
We might be from the bush. but we ain't green
All I know is that the 12/10 no longer applies during the finals series when clubs come up against Bendigo, Geelong or Collingwood.
Apparently a request was made a couple of months ago and AFL Vic approved it.

I suppose since Essendon, Geelong and Collingwood are all AFL standalone clubs and don't have to abide by the 12/10 rule, it is only fair the aligned clubs can play as many AFL players they like.
The VFL is a CIRCUS run by CLOWNS.
No 12/10 rule in the first week of the finals if the AFL side is still playing. Obviously this year EVERY AFL side was still playing as our finals started when the AFL was playing there last round.
Week 2 of the finals sees the 12/10 rule in place and also the 7 game qualification.
