STEVE JOHNSON SET TO PLAY; AFL GRAND
The Grand Final Parade went off without a hitch, even Collingwood supporters were relatively well behaved, only jeering Cameron Ling for 30 seconds or so during the presentation at the top end of Collins Street. Afterwards, over 100 fans of the Footy Almanac turned up to a lunch at the Clyde Hotel in Elgin Street Carlton. Geelong Vice President Gareth Andrews was first up to the podium, quizzed by John Harms. Andrews wouldn't give anything away about Johnson and whether or not he'll play, and genuinely may not know. Next up was Jenny Hawkins (mother of Tom), later on we heard from Andrew Mackie's mother, Sam Pang, Tony Daniher and maybe two dozen others.
The Age featured an article today we contributed to; hypothetically who would you like to see kick for a winning goal after the siren?
