    Sideline Symbols To Revolutionise Game Day Coaching

    I can't wait to read all the 'journalists' speculating on what symbol means what. I bet the footy shows will have dedicated 'code-breakers' who'll outline in cringeworthy fashion exactly why they think X symbol means Y tactic. Then when some are worked out, the clubs will cry foul that they can no longer communicate to their players without the opposition knowing their moves, and request more symbols to be made available. Then we can all read about 'symbol-gate', and Gill will have to make a 'captains call' on 100 new symbols to make the codes harder to break. Can we just watch the [censored] footy please?

    Meet Braydon Preuss

    My bother is a north fan. He's been giving me crap about Tyson for years. This trade is delicious.

    This explains so much

    AFLX Revamped

    Is this a late April fool's joke?
  5. Looks like there's finally a product coming to market to fill the gap a lot of us have been complaining about: https://kayosports.com.au/ $25 per month, stream AFL, NRL, Cricket and a whole lot of other sports live and on demand. Chomecast compatible. Apparently it's owned by Foxtel. I'm amazed that they've brought this out. Even just watching every Dees game it'd work out at a $6.25 per game. Chromecast to a big screen and that's some good value. I'm seriously considering this, despite my distaste for the parent company. Subscribe during footy season, cancel, repeat. I've bashed Foxtel a lot over the years, but this right here is exactly the sort of service I've been looking for. Edit: Additional notes from Whirlpool thread (https://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/2763582), assuming their source there is reliable: - 1080p streaming and 4k where available - ability to watch live channels (I assume this means Foxsports) If those are true then this is phenomenal

    Rule changes

    Given the way the ruck nomination rules have been exploited on occasion, it doesn't surprise me that these scenarios need to be thought about and planned for. It's better than just blindly flinging rules in every year and hoping they achieve the desired outcome. Of course they could just LEAVE IT ALONE, but that is perhaps the hardest thing for administration to achieve. Personally I don't think congestion was that much of an issue this year, and even when it did bog down games occasionally I don't think it was heavy enough to warrant a rule change to 'fix' it.

    I think you left out the pointy end mate.

    What’s the go with Essendrug?

    You mean I too can receive spam from a football club? And all I have to do is pay some money to the EFC? Where do I sign?! Lol. "Benefits".

    What’s the go with Essendrug?

    Fair enough on the Orwell front, can't argue with that. It's likely this username is the cleverest thing I'll come up with in my lifetime. It's all downhill from here.

    2019 Fixture

    I'm really happy with the 13 free to air matches. Less incentive to hand over cash to Foxtel.

    Feel like changing your name to Orwell?

    The No T$ No B$ Thread

    I would own those libtards so bad.

    The No T$ No B$ Thread

    Yeah. Can understand why though. If I ran a forum I'd be pretty conservative as well.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Wait, are you saying there's a difference? If I close my eyes and wish really really super duper hard, everything I want will happen. Otherwise I've wasted a lot of money on 'The Secret' dvds.

    Would we take $cully back?

    Not sure how a player that good can go for so little, even with an injury issue. I don't get it.
  17. Meh, I won't be watching then.
  18. The draft is now ever 2 nights? Round 1 is going to take 2 and a half hours? For 18 picks? What.... what is going on here? I must have missed something. Surely it doesn't take 2 and a half hours to call 18 names?

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Oh it's a hole alright. Not sure it's the 'rabbit' variety though.

    Josh Kelly

    My brother is a north supporter. I don't think I'd ever stop giving him crap if this happened. Doubt it though. Already giving him heaps about Preuss, who he rates and doesn't want to lose.

    Post Match Discussion - Semi Final

    I have no words. You could feel it in the song when we were belting it out. There's something here.

    Is it time to serve last drinks on bath water?

    I'm so up and about right now I'm drinking the bath water by the keg. After the last decade of [censored], I'm throwing myself face first into optimism. I'm gonna enjoy every bit of the media coverage, even if it is way over the top.

    Facebook says we offered Tyson but it was rejected. But, you know, Facebook.
