Port Adelaide forward Jay Schulz is desperate to avoid taking ownership of the AFL's least-wanted statistic.
The Power are one win away from securing a finals position and Schulz, 28, is yet to make his finals debut.
Recruited from Richmond, he watched with envy and enjoyment as his former teammates sewed up their top-eight spot.
Chris Newman, Brett Deledio, Shane Tuck and Daniel Jackson have played more games than Schulz, meaning the 138-game veteran needs one more win to avoid becoming the current player with the most games and no finals experience.
The Power face Fremantle at Patersons Stadium tonight and then Carlton at AAMI Stadium next week.
They are the most important games of Schulz's career.
"It's something that I think about each day," Schulz said.
"When you're waking up in September and there's teams still playing footy, that's what you want to be doing.
"It's been especially difficult for me because as a junior we always played finals.
"I was always playing in a side where we were playing in finals and grand finals. Then I came into AFL and it all dried up.
"It's a burning desire.
"We've got our own destiny in our own hands. We have to go to Perth and get the job done. That'd be fantastic. If not, it'll be a showdown in the last round."
Schulz will be a vital player for the Power tonight because of his accurate goal kicking. He has booted 39.21 for the season.
The Dockers are renowned for their ability to stop teams from getting the ball inside 50, making it imperative for opposition sides to take their chances.
"I take great pride in being able to kick accurately and know my teammates can rely on me and know that when I get the ball inside 50, I am a good chance to put it through the sticks," he said.
"It's something I do a lot of work on."
