Should have given the benefit of the doubt to the guy actually playing the ball, rather than the one playing for the BS free kick.

Yep. Absolutely.

Which is the worse look? The guy desperately punching the ball over the line under perceived pressure or the guy who quickly gives up a gettable chase waving his arms in the air at the umpire appealing for the free kick?

It seems that every new rule is being gamed by the players.

Was interesting to hear the discussion prompted by Pendlebury's comments on the third man up rule and the confusion it is causing.

On a different note ... have they changed the 10 metre rule... I thought I noticed a few opposition players running through the protected space last night and no penalty was given. Of course it could have been the television angle

Is that your little guy running out with Jessie, last week? 

Precious memories for him.

Amazing to think there is a huge chance that the swans, hawks and pies all start the year 0-2

Not sure the Pies starting 0-2 is that unexpected. 

I think we'll see Adelaide, Bulldogs, GWS, West Coast and eventually the Swans in the top 5. The rest of the top 8 is up for grabs.

He's conceded a score in a close match. Isn't that penalty enough? Bull [censored] rule.

Why on a Saturday night do we get Brisbane v Essendon. Yes I know it's a Brisbane home game and they deserve to be seen on free to air but I'd rather have seen todays game played tonight or Geelong and nth. Not going to bother watching except maybe in the last few minutes if Brisbane look like winning, which would be a miracle.

Would love to see Gawn v Jacobs at the moment. Jacobs has killed Vickery around the ground. Absolutely murdered him.

nah, they've just stopped enforcing it.  For the moment.

Adelaide half backs have started storming through the centre square now though. Even with that Poppy goal, Adelaide are on top here.

Hawthorn lack the leaders. Hodge is so slow and keeps turning it over.

Really like Roosy as a commentator too. Those three years back in the game have given him the feel for it again. I felt just prior to joining Melbourne he wasn't as up with it anymore. That's not the case now.

With this new “Nomination for the ruck” thing, surely the opposing team’s ruckman must be notified as to who he’s actually up against before the ball up happens. Jacobs didn’t have a clue his opposing ruck would be Rioli; he still thought it was Vickery.

Give her my very best regards. 

I think all on here know my feelings toward Whorethorn...

She's like many Hawthorn people I know. Doesn't really care what happens, but if they win is happy to say "Go Hawkers".

I thought that was fair. Rioli nominated. Clever by the Hawks. But pathetic defending at the top of the square though. Hilarious!

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.
