  1. I'm not finished yet... the commentary is atrociously anti MFCW... Throughout the first half the male commentator continually gloated that the Bulldogs only had to win to make the GF (that alone was not entirely true)... seeming to ignore that MFCW only had to win to make the GF!!!!
  2. Do the research! We've lost several close games because opposition teams win free kicks in front of goal! Its running at 80/20 over two seasons. I refuse to dump on the coaching panel when it is blatantly obvious that we are playing with an unfair handicap. I want women only to umpire women's games! Male umpires seem incapable of making difficult adjudications against women who are bending the rules! Jumping on backs... legitimate handballs... dragging the ball in... etc etc... Daisy is mauled every game... protection factor NIL!!!
  3. I've watched all our games and I don't have any criticism for female umps.... but my God... male umps are atrocious!!!! Two goals from dubious free kicks in front of goal seals the deal! Free kick count was 11 to 3 in the first half, after that I knew who would win. I congratulate the Demon women for being able to score a couple into the wind. If we had received one dubious free in the forward 50 we would have won and we would be playing in the GF. It must be difficult for the players to accept
  4. AFLW: Rd 5 v. Brisbane @ Casey

    The fifty meter penalty was also a very poor piece of umpiring. The Dees player was 10 meters from the player who took the mark and as she had quite a bit of ground to cover to get to the mark, the umpire incorrectly interpreted it as running over the mark.
  5. AFLW: Rd 5 v. Brisbane @ Casey

    Reluctant to criticize the AFLW game... until now... Not the players... the umpiring is atrocious! Unbelievably inconsistent... and I don't mind saying the Dees have drawn the short straw. Unless the AFL acts, a women is going to be seriously hurt from head high tackles (which go without penalty) and the running over the top of players who are bending down to pick up the ball (which goes unnoticed). Now, here is my big gripe... the commentary is unbearable... yes, women make up the majority of the commentators, but the bias toward some teams is off the scale... and the tendency toward sensationalism is sickening!
  6. Injury List - Season 2018

    Lewis was the victim of a crude tackle from behind against Roos which was dangerous and went unnoticed. I wouldn't be surprised if he is suffering from that more than a 'calf'.
  7. Preseason Training Week commencing - 05/02/18

    Just a note on Sean Wight: He mastered at least 3 codes... Soccer, Gaelic and AFL (VFL)... He was in the top 10 most courageous of all time (watch his games on a bigger, uglier, VFL icon, Plugger!)... I was at his pre-wake at the Bentleigh Club (Jimmy spoke for him, even though he was also diagnosed at the time) ... His athleticism was stunning, considering his knee reco in his first (maybe 2nd) year... to top it off, he played with authentic Brownlow values (like The Tulip)... consider some of the bullying thugs who have won Charlie!
  8. AFLW: Round 1 vs. GWS

    I'm really glad AFLW is back.... Like a new GOT series, sometimes folk are disappointed with the first episode, but the final quarter was magnificent! Those that continue to express the need to compare it to the men's game are lost in a time warp! The whole competition is crammed full of inspiring young women; at the summit sits Daisy... a wonderful role model, for all genders! Go Dees
  9. Maroochydore training camp

    SUNSHINE COAST DAILY by Steele Taylor 24th Oct 2017 10:20 AM additional dates courtesy of club sites AUSTRALIAN RULES: The Sunshine Coast's reputation as a pre-season destination for AFL teams has been enhanced, with Carlton to train in the region during summer. The Blues will hold an open training session on Sunday 17 December at the Maroochydore Multi Sports Complex... Richmond will hit the Complex for a pre-season training camp, where fans can view the AFL Premiership Cup at their community open session on Monday, January 22. The Western Bulldogs will host an open training session on Sunday 28 January, closely followed by Melbourne, as AFL clubs confirm they will have camps here.
  10. Maroochydore training camp

    Just a minor point of clarification... the Maroochydore Open Day was on 16th January in 2016, according to my iPhone pics.
  11. Maroochydore training camp

    I have attended the past two Maroochydore Camps and it usually takes place a little earlier in January. Several AFL clubs compete for times at this facility and it may not have been possible for MFC to get the dates they wanted. Also, Qld Term dates are earlier than Vic schools, so the Qld kids are already back for Term 1.
  12. Preseason Training Week commencing - 15/01/18

    Got down to Gosch's today for about 80 minutes... observations other than those already mentioned, Bernie's predicted demise was premature! His ball handling and kicking to position in the conditions was of the highest quality and he was up to speed in the sprints Ditto Lewis Impressed by Filipovic's increased bulk, athletic running and sure hands Jetta terrific in man on man defensive rebound activity Oscar McD consistently effective at spoiling in the arial contests Tom McD had the safest hands in the marking exercises I watched Petracca bustles like a bull and gets what he wants Bugg is looking like best 22 again Lewis an unlikely dead-eyed-dick on the day Oh yes, a bloke called Clayton continues to make the difficult look easy
  13. Where's Harrison Petty?

    Ok... he may be next up!
  14. Where's Harrison Petty?

    Interesting that the Cocca didn't mention him in the latest list assessment...
  15. Where's Harrison Petty?

    This may be a little petty, but I note that Harrison and number 35 have disappeared off the listed players on the official site... has he been seen recently?
