Gold Coast have delisted 8 players, the day after their season ended with a wooden spoon. Nathan Ablett (younger brother Gary Jr.), senior-listed players Michael Coad, Marc Lock, and Jack Stanlake, and rookie-listed players Roland Ah Chee, Jake Crawford, Jack Stanley and Joel Tippett, were all de-listed.
Suns coach Guy McKenna was blunt in his assessment, saying he thought the game was too quick for the younger Ablett.
"In the games we saw this year it's certainly fair to say the game's sort of gobbled him up a bit," McKenna said.
"Whether he's going to get that speed back … time stands still for no-one and we have to move forward, and probably [in] another 12 months, we thought as a match committee, he wasn't going to be up to the level of speed.
"With where the game's gone to, we just didn't think he was going to be up to scratch, so we had to make that call."

Welcome to the 2011 AFL Finals Series thread :)
September means finals time as the top 8 teams of the Australian Football League competition at the end of the regular season compete over three weeks of playoffs to decide this year's premiers. For the second year in a row (and the third time in 12 years), the Grand Final will be held on the first Saturday in October.
Reigning premiers Collingwood finished the regular season as minor premiers (first place on the ladder). The Magpies had dominated most of the season, winning 20 of their 22 games. However, a shock 96-point loss to Geelong in the final round of the season plus injuries to key players (including captain Nick Maxwell) means their favouritism has taken a big hit. Could the Pies regain their best form in time to go back-to-back (like the Brisbane Lions of 2001-02) or will they fall at the final hurdle (like Geelong of 2008 and St Kilda of 2009)?
Geelong have been one of the best teams in recent history, winning two flags and more than 90% of matches since 2007. This year they had mixed results, with devastating defeats on Melbourne (which led to the sacking of coach Dean Bailey) and Gold Coast, narrow victory over Adelaide, and shock losses to Essendon and Sydney. However they beat fellow top 4 teams Collingwood and Hawthorn twice each. In the finals however the Cats have never beaten West Coast (they lost the 1991 preliminary final as well as the 1992 and 1994 Grand Finals), so if they reach the preliminary final this year they will be nervously waiting to see their opponents. With most of the club's star players reaching around 30 next year, this could be their last chance to win the third premiership.
Hawthorn have been one of the leading teams of 2011, and seemingly close to their best form which saw them securing the 2008 premiership. The Hawks have been able to cover season-ending injuries to players like Jarryd Roughead and Ben Stratton with emerging youngsters such as Luke Breust (one of the finds of the year), Isaac Smith and Paul Puopolo. Stars like Lance "Buddy" Franklin (the 2011 Coleman medallist as leading goalkicker during the regular season), captain Luke Hodge, his predecessor Sam Mitchell (named player of the year by both ABC Radio and the Herald Sun) and Cyril Rioli have been leading the charge. Hawthorn had fared badly against other top 4 teams in the regular season, losing to Geelong (twice) and Collingwood and just beating West Coast. In fact, since Hawthorn's win over Geelong in the 2008 Grand Final, the Cats had beaten the Hawks by the combined margin of 44 points. If the Hawks want to grab the flag they will have to get past at least one of these teams.
West Coast have been one of the remarkable stories of the 2011 season. After finishing last on the ladder last year, the Eagles had a dramatic turnaround, winning 17 games to finish 4th on the ladder, led by key players such as Darren Glass, Dean Cox, Quentin Lynch and rising stars Nic Naitanui, Luke Shuey and Jack Darling. Can they continue their fairytale rise and become the first VFL/AFL team in more than 80 years to win the premiership after getting the wooden spoon the year before?
Carlton began the 2011 season with a 20-point victory over Richmond in the traditional season opener. This was followed with a massive win over the AFL's newest club, Gold Coast, in Blues captain Chris Judd's 200th AFL game. Carlton won this match by 119 points, the biggest win for Carlton over any opposition team in almost ten years. The Blues had always threatened to make an impact on the rest of the competition during the 2011 season, reaching as high as 4th position, but they struggled in the past two months, with uncharacteristic losses to Western Bulldogs, West Coast, Fremantle and St Kilda to finish 5th. Could they regain their best form in time?
Last year's runner-up St Kilda had a bad start to the 2011 season, winning one match and drawing another to drop to 15th spot by the end of Round 8. They had staged a big recovery, winning 11 of their next 15 games (including six in a row) to claim 6th place and a finals spot. They lost to Collingwood and Geelong twice each during the regular season. Unlike the past two years, the Saints will go into the finals as a darkhorse.
Both Sydney and Essendon have new coaches for 2011 (John Longmire and James Hird respectively) and both teams had mixed results during the season. Essendon combined big wins (over Western Bulldogs by 55 points in Hird's first game as senior coach, over Gold Coast by 139 points, in which the Bombers scored a record breaking 15.4 (94) to 0.1 (1) in the first quarter, and over Geelong by 4 points) with a mid-season form slump, losing five games in a row. They also lost to Collingwood by 74 points in Round 19 after leading as much as 30 points. In one of the games of the year, the Bombers snuck home by one point after a set shot from Sydney's Adam Goodes drifted to the left, giving Essendon only its' fifth win over Sydney since 2002. They only qualified for the finals by beating Port Adelaide in Round 23.
Sydney has had a reasonable season so far in 2011, registering a draw in the opening round against Melbourne before going on to beat Essendon and West Coast by 5 and 13 points respectively. However, the Swans would then go on to lose their next two matches, against Geelong and Carlton with a bye sandwiched in between, before rebounding with consecutive wins over the Western Bulldogs and Port Adelaide. A huge loss to Hawthorn by 46 points followed, but the Swans would again rebound with a narrow 1-point victory over bitter rivals North Melbourne in Melbourne, which was followed by a huge win over the Brisbane Lions in Brisbane where the Swans have only lost twice since 2002. Their good form continued in Round 12 beating Richmond before losses followed in the next three matches, against Carlton, Collingwood and Adelaide (whom the Swans have only beaten twice since 2001). An easy win over the Gold Coast at Metricon Stadium followed in Round 16, to snap a three-game losing streak, before costly losses to Fremantle and Essendon saw them tumble to eighth on the ladder and in danger of missing the finals for only the third time since 2000. In Round 23, the Swans defied all odds and defeated Geelong at the Cats' home ground Kardinia Park, which had not been achieved by any team in four years. Sydney had not won there in 12 years. Goodes had been one of the leading players for the Swans in 2011, and his form could see him winning his third Brownlow Medal, joining past greats like Bob Skilton (another Swans legend) and Ian Stewart.
For the first time, the AFL finals will be powered with 100 per cent GreenPower. This means Origin Energy (one of the AFL's sponsors) will have 100 per cent of the electricity consumption of each finals game matched into the grid with electricity from GreenPower accredited renewable sources.
Origin’s GreenPower contribution will lessen the greenhouse gas emissions normally produced during the AFL finals by more than 790 tonnes.

The AFL today announced the All Australian squad for this season with 25 players from the 40-man extended squad presented their first chance to earn a guernsey in the coveted team.
Top two teams Collingwood and Geelong have provided six players each to the squad, while there are five West Coast players, with third-placed Hawthorn boasting four players.
Interestingly, Essendon - who finished eighth on the ladder - has no nominees while North Melbourne, who ended the home and away season ninth, has four.
The Sydney Swans - who finished seventh - have just the one nominee with Adam Goodes.
Carlton, who ended the year fifth, has four inclusions.
St Kilda, who finished sixth - is represented by three.
Of the other teams that didn't make the finals, Adelaide's Scott Thompson is in the mix to represent the Crows in the final 22, while Fremantle has Nat Fyfe and Luke McPharlin as part of the squad.
Brownlow medallist Gary Ablett is Gold Coast's lone representative after a solid year as the Suns' captain while Brett Deledio is the only Tiger to have earned a nomination.
Lastly, the Western Bulldogs are represented by captain Matthew Boyd - who led the League for possessions and averaged almost 32 a game - and Robert Murphy, who had a strong year off half-back.
The Brisbane Lions, Melbourne and Port Adelaide were all without representation in the squad.
Scott Thompson, Eddie Betts, Marc Murphy, Heath Scotland, Travis Cloke, Ben Reid, Dale Thomas, Nat Fyfe, Luke McPharlin, James Kelly, Harry Taylor, Grant Birchall, Josh Gibson, Sam Mitchell, Todd Goldstein, Drew Petrie, Andrew Swallow, Daniel Wells, Brett Deledio, Sam Fisher, Stephen Milne, Andrew Embley, Josh Kennedy, Matt Priddis and Robert Murphy are the 25 nominated for the first time.
The final team of 22 players will be named in 13 days.

Essendon assistant coach Dean Wallis has been banned for 14 matches and fined $7500 for betting on AFL games.
Wallis was at a loss to explain the bets when he fronted the media and denied he has a gambling problem.
“I have got no explanation … it was stupid, stupid," Wallis said.
"I have not got a gambling problem, it was a just a naive, stupid decision."
Asked why he initially lied to AFL investigators, telling them he placed one of the bets for a friend, Wallis said: "I thought the issue would have gone away, and it did not."
Wallis backed the Bombers to beat Sydney on August 6 - a game the Bombers won, but only after Adam Goodes missed a shot at goal after the siren.
All of the bets were footy quads and Anderson said "it is my understanding that the bets were not successful".
Wallis was caught after being spotted placing a $200 bet in Bendigo on August 27 and initially claimed he placed the bet for a friend.
But he eventually admitted the bet was for himself after the August 6 bet, for $100, was uncovered. He then admitted placing another $100 bet in June or July.
The ban means he cannot take any part in next year's pre-season training or the NAB Cup. He is also banned from coaching at VFL level.
He has also been fined $7500, with Anderson saying the league took into account "Dean's personal situation" before arriving at the figure.
Anderson said the most important factor in deciding the 14-week ban was "there is no evidence of any corrupt activity here or any misuse of inside information".
"On the other hand, this is a very serious matter, firstly because Dean was initially untruthful, secondly because this involves a bet on Dean's own club, thirdly the size of the bets was not unsubstantial, and finally now, more than ever, there is no excuse for an AFL coach to not be aware he must not bet on AFL games, let alone his own team.
"Dean denied placing that first bet on his own behalf and it was only as a result of further investigation by our investigation team that he ultimately admitted placing that first bet on his own behalf and the second bet was uncovered, and he admitted placing the third bet.
"If it comes to light that there were indeed other bets then this sanction will be increased."
Essendon CEO Ian Robson said the Bombers would support Wallis, who will have a new analytical role at the club. He will have no contact with players during his ban.

Summary of the second qualifying final:
GEELONG 2.0 7.2 12.6 14.14 (98)
HAWTHORN 3.5 4.8 7.12 9.13 (67)

Goals: Geelong: J Podsiadly 3 B Ottens 2 D Menzel 2 T Hawkins 2 J Bartel J Hunt M Stokes S Johnson T West. Hawthorn: L Franklin 4 L Hodge 2 C Rioli I Smith J Lewis.
Best: Geelong: B Ottens P Chapman J Kelly C Ling S Johnson J Podsiadly. Hawthorn: L Hodge L Franklin L Shiels I Smith G Birchall B Sewell.
Injuries: Geelong: Daniel Menzel (right knee). Hawthorn: Lance Franklin (right knee), Max Bailey (left calf)
Reports: Jordan Lewis (Hawthorn) for engaging in rough conduct with Joel Selwood (Geelong) in the second quarter.
Umpires: Chris Donlon, Shaun Ryan, Mathew Nicholls.
Official Crowd: 73,400 at MCG.

Geelong won a bruising encounter against Hawthorn tonight at the MCG with injuries to key players at both teams.
Lance Franklin, who had kicked four goals to keep his team in the contest, was helped off by two trainers with what seemed to be a serious right knee injury after he landed awkwardly in a marking contest late in the last quarter. The Coleman Medalist landed with full force on his right leg which buckled and he writhed in pain on the turf.
Luke Hodge, who gave the Hawks some life with two goals straight after halftime, struggled through the second half with a right thigh injury. He must be in doubt to be able to return next week.
Ruckman Max Bailey limped off with a bruised calf muscle midway through the third quarter and he was replaced by sub Chance Bateman.
Geelong forward Daniel Menzel, who kicked two goals in the first term, was stretchered from the field during the second quarter. He was chasing a loose ball on the Southern stand wing when he appeared to injure his knee as he clashed bodies with Hawk Paul Puopolo at the 19-minute mark. He was diagnosed with rupture in the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and will be sidelined for at least nine months.
It was the Cats' seventh consecutive win over the Hawks since the latter won the 2008 Grand Final.

I was at the game, sitting at the second level of the Ponsford Stand with two of my work colleagues. It was hard to sit among Cats fans trying to cheer on my beloved Hawks.

Collingwood kicked two late goals to hang on for a 20-point win over West Coast in their qualifying final at the MCG today.
Dane Swan and Scott Pendlebury were dominant in midfield for the winners, who earn a week off ahead of the preliminary final.
Nic Naitanui had a big game in the ruck for the Eagles.
The Magpies led by 26 points at three quarter time before the Eagles kicked three goals in the final term to go within 8 points.

After St Kilda were eliminated from the finals, Michael Gardiner, Steven Baker and Andrew McQualter all announced their retirement in the changerooms. All were member of the Saints' team that lost last year's Grand Final. Robert Eddy has also decided to leave the club, clarifying on Twitter that he is not retiring from the AFL.
UPDATE 12/9: Gardiner was the only one who decided to retire. Baker, McQualter and Eddy were all delisted.

Summary of second elimination final:
SYDNEY 2.4 7.6 8.9 12.10 (82)
ST KILDA 1.3 3.4 7.7 8.9 (57)
GOALS Sydney: O'Keefe 4, Goodes 2, McGlynn 2, Mumford 2, Spangher, Reid. St Kilda: Schneider 2, Goddard 2, Koschitzke, Dal Santo, Riewoldt, Milne.
BEST Sydney: O'Keefe, Goodes, Richards, Smith, McVeigh, Shaw, McGlynn, Kennedy, Mumford. St Kilda: Dal Santo, Dawson, Jones, Gram, Fisher, Dempster, Montagna.
INJURIES Sydney: Hannebery (shoulder), Rohan (knee)
UMPIRES Vozzo, Mollison, Chamberlain.
CROWD 39,205 at Etihad Stadium.

The Sydney Swans' premiership dream is still alive after they won a bruising elimination final by 25 points over St Kilda at Etihad Stadium on Saturday night.
The Swans withstood a brave third quarter fightback from last year's beaten grand finalist, drawing away in the final term to win 12.10 (82) to 8.9 (57).
They will now lock horns with Hawthorn in the second semi-final at the MCG on Friday night, while St Kilda's season is over.
Saints' coach Ross Lyon lamented a second-quarter performance from his team that he branded "unrecognisable". The Swans ground out a 26-point lead during the pivotal term on the back of the tireless work of Adam Goodes, Ryan O'Keefe and Jarrad McVeigh.
Nick Riewoldt finished with 16 touches and a goal, but appeared to struggle with a knee injury after going to ground heavily in a marking contest with Ted Richards in the first quarter.
The loss is a bitter end to a difficult year for the Saints, who appeared destined to watch the 2011 finals from the sidelines with one win and a draw from their first eight games, but fought through adversity to claim a home final.
The Swans' progression to the second week of the finals is a wonderful effort given they were rocked by the retirements of bookend players Daniel Bradshaw and Craig Bolton early in John Longmire's first year in charge.

Summary of first elimination final:
CARLTON 4.5 10.12 17.17 21.23 (149)
ESSENDON 3.4 4.7 8.9 13.9 (87)
Goals: Carlton: E Betts 4, A Walker 3, B Gibbs 3, J Garlett 3, B Thornton 2, A Carrazzo, C Judd, K Simpson, M Murphy, M Robinson, S O'hAilpin. Essendon: A Monfries 3, B Stanton 2, D Hille 2, K Reimers 2, H Hocking, J Carlisle, L Jetta, T Colyer.
Best: Carlton: M Murphy, R Warnock, A Carrazzo, H Scotland, B Thornton, J Garlett, E Betts, B Gibbs, M Robinson, L Henderson. Essendon: H Hocking, B Stanton, A Monfries, D Zaharakis.
Umpires: Matt Stevic, Simon Meredith, Brett Rosebury.
Official Crowd: 90,161 at MCG.

Carlton has charged into a semi-final date with West Coast Eagles after a 62-point demolition of Essendon in the elimination final at the MCG. It was the Blues' first finals victory in 10 years, after losing their past two elimination final in 2009 (against Brisbane, after leading by 40 points at three quarter time) and 2010 (against Sydney).
In front of a crowd 90,161 - a record for an elimination final - the Blues led at every change and save for a five-minute burst in the first term when the Bombers kicked the first three goals of the game, they proved a cut above their opposition. At one stage Carlton kicked 10 unanswered goals between their first 19 minutes into the first term and the 27-minute mark of the second to take a 41-point lead into the long interval.
Any vague notions of a second half revival by Essendon evaporated in the heat of a 7.5 to 4.2 third term that allowed the Blues have an unassailable 62-point lead at the final change.
