    Lightbulb Melbourne people, anyone heading to AFL House tomorrow night?

    Just a thought I had in my mind. Anyone else interested in popping down to Telstra Dome tomorrow evening to take a peak at everything first hand?

    Furthermore if we go there, do we go there out of support for a clubman at a time when he needs it. Or do we do there to show him (quietly) our unhappiness at the damage he potentially has done to the team's chances, the Swans as a sporting brand, as well as the notion of Aussie Rules as a sport you want little Johnny to take part in.

    I'm seriously torn in all this. But working 2 blocks from the Dome would love to go there to see all the drama unfold before my very eyes?

    Anyone else want to come along? Does anyone know when everything starts & whether we in the general public would actually get to see anything?

    Thanks in advance for any thoughts or feedback on this.

    PM me if you think you would be interested in turning up.

    Neither.

    I don't see any benefit to either showing support or criticising him. I see it better to leave him alone at that time.

    He might not be there, due to recovery from surgery.

    All you'll see is people walk into a building and, maybe, a few hours later, leave.

    A waste of time going there. Like the "rubber-neckers" at a car crash.

    Would be far more constructive to sing songs all night outside the tribunal members' houses.
