    Just wondering why this year the only ones who did the usual post match lap and actually said hello to the fans and kids was Menzies. All teh others seemed to do a half hearted walk around the field rather than coming right out to greet the fans.

    Any idea if this was an edict from the club, or just a change in the attitude of the players?
    (personally the mr nice guy attitude we have had for too long is getting old and a change is as good as a holiday)

    I wonder what would happen if they did a lap after a big loss?

    I would love to see a player do the soccer thing, and involve the fans when they have scored.

    Yeah but even at the start of the year after a win they would do a half hearted lap and that sit. They use to lap it up and clap hands with the fans etc


    My nephews and neices all really enjoyed that part

    Well heres some photos of the players lap after games.

    IMO about half the players look to enjoy it. BK generally seems the most enthusiastic.

    yes but remember how they use to run right around the fence right up there with the fans?

    They just do a lap near the sideline now

    Like this!

    Yeah I tend to agree :), rarely did they come to the fence in 2005.

    It's a must that they do it properly after wins. The kids absolutely love it. It used to make my brother's day when he could touch the hands of one of his idols (he's 13) - he'd go on about it for weeks.
