Almost the end

Star Greater Western Sydney recruit Ryan Griffen has admitted he was on the verge of quitting the AFL after the weight of captaining the Western Bulldogs destroyed his enjoyment of the game.
In an emotional press conference at Giants headquarters on Thursday, Griffen choked on his words as he opened up about the disillusionment he felt at the Bulldogs before announcing he was quitting the club last week.
After being traded to the Giants on Wednesday on a four-year deal, 202-game star Griffen is confident he can rediscover his passion for the game in the relative anonymity of western Sydney.
Speaking for the first time since dropping the bombshell on the Bulldogs, which resulted in coach Brendan McCartney falling on his sword, Griffen pleaded for understanding from the Footscray faithful for choosing to walk out on the embattled club.
