[quote=footyman][quote=paul]That hasnt been the policy this year or in any year I can remember, so it isnt really grounds for a last minute change once arrangements have already been made.[/quote]
In recent years it has been policy, if it wasn't then the ABC would just choose all their games at the start of the year.
Even a few years ago, the ABC picked the first two-thirds of the season's games and left the last 6-7 rounds until late so they could show the best game.
Policy about 5-6 years ago was that every team had one home game covered.
This year, it was decided to do the games in four week blocks so they could pick and choose the best game.[/quote]
If you are so convinced by this, list the ABC games this year and tell me how many were the game of the week, either before or after the fact.

Dolphins are a dead set chance in this. Don't worry about ladder positions. Will go down to the wire (again for the scorpions).
In depth interview with Brett Lovett about tomorrow's game is up on the Dolphins website - www.frankstonfc.com.au - well worth a read.

Frankston will use this game as a mini final i reckon there could be some fireworks
Frankston by 14 points
I'm three behind the leaders in the tipping and I've taken two roughies this week.
Frankston to beat Casey
The Slimes to beat Coburg!
... and on the flip of the coin... Werribee to beat Box Hill.

I'll be checking the odds in the next hour or two and will post them. Frankston to win under 39 could be terrific value. I actually picked the slimes tomorrow. Coburg were atrocious last week. Cramwer Street will suit the Slimes.
