Do you understand the term machine learning as a subset of artificial intelligence? 

I engineer systems of this nature for a living and what you just said makes absolutely zero sense. 

it's software not hardware (i.e. machines) ....not hard to know the difference. yes, i know they call it "machine learning" but that's just bs marketing. i first got involved in ai 35 years ago (in a minor way)

I had a squiz on the Norf big footy forum and of course they were [censored] off.

The mentioned another rule change this year I wasn't aware of. Even if it's an accidental head clash, you're liable for suspension. 

That's what has happened.

See this great article from Nathan Burke. 

https://thenewdaily.com.au/sport/afl/2018/12/14/afl-rules-changes-footy/

It almost seems like the best tactic now would be if you're involved in a head clash and you're opponent is dazed and needs help from the ground....

 Feign concussion and wobble off with them because you're gunna get a week at least.

If both players are concussed do both players get suspended? Wtf

Just imagine how this rule could play out at finals time.

Geez they're wrecking the game so quickly at the moment.

 

They are...

All these directors/dheads,  think they can just pull all the rules,  and change everything...  since 2000,  they've  gone Feral.

Instead of undoing newish laws that have created problems,  they continue to make even more new rules to fix the lousy rules they put in place.

 

Just reduce the interchange bench,  you Commision morons.  Commission is right.

... they must be on some sort of  "commission",  for implementing new rules.

Well you can go ahead and take that up with Arthur Samuel who invented the term in 1959 (hot tip - he was a computer scientist, not a marketing guy). Got any more pearls of wisdom to share?

No, private schools don't bother me at all...  no problem with them.   My issue is with arrogance...  and beliefs of superiority...  that's seen mostly in males,  and from mostly the Private School sector.

Maybe its more the parents arrogant attitudes ?  Than the Schools, but it is real... and it is witnessed in Western culture,  worldwide.

It may be that private school boys grow up and do well in life, a disproportionate number of our political and industry leaders have been to private schools. Perhaps you have a problem with power and authority. I find using stereotypes can weaken an argument.

I have a problem with some,  'using'....  authority over others, yes.

Power,  no problem...  as we all have it (personal),  apart from in law.   This is where bullying comes into play....   Both with personal abuse, and also with lawful use of Power.  Abuse often happens in this space,  by authorities, and by big business.

 

Power over things. - that's different,  Politics, &/or in Business.    Mining where these two meet,  and exploitation occurs...  and deceit reigns supreme.

Arrogance in the AFL... not accepting the supporters as the top stake holders...  and not having referendums on the game in a voting situation,  about the laws of the game,  and how things are decided upon.   eg:   price of a hotdog...  transfer methods of players...  scheduling, or biased fixturing...  

I could go on.

...  arrogance is all about...  and is out of control.

 

But really at a personal level I cannot stand arrogant people,  who see themselves as their  s#1t  odor don't  linger.

It seems Gazza is unhappy being tagged a Sniper. He probably resembles it, as they say in the classics.

If I were him I'd settle for the fact I have total immunity from any prosecution.

As far as footy goes, I’d consider what he’s done the last two weeks to be ‘sniping’. If he doesn’t like the tag, don’t snipe. 

Unfortunately the AFL have given him a free pass in what may be his last season.

To play 320 games without being reported means he's no sniper. In a footy sense, someone who's a sniper does their work underhanded, pre-mediated and behind the play and cameras would have caught him long before this if he was doing anything of the sort.

In the last two weeks his two similar reports have been careless, clumsy and stupid, but they were not underhanded, pre-meditated or even behind the play.

Whether he should have got a holiday, got fined or got off is open to debate -and for such a brilliant footballer, he is certainly a polarising figure to fans.

However he is certainly not a sniper.

Ablett will go down as one of the greats. And no-one will argue against that.

His acts of the last two weeks have possibly been out of character, and in the context of his illustrious career, are un-Gazlike, but balanced against his 300+ games and Brownlows, will not be what he is remembered for.

Taken out of context and viewed in isolation as acts committed by "player X", they are not good viewing and if committed by (say) Tommy Bugg, people would be baying for his suspension for sheer stupidity if nothing else. Gaz definitely got out of jail, twice.

But the debate and upset has not really been about Ablett. What the last 2 weeks have shown, is the crystallisation of the AFL's immense hypocrisy and double standards. Long suspected by many, in no doubt by many more, the loss of control of the game by the AFL has been on clear display.

Player X hits a player from behind, with an elbow, while airborne, and gets the benefit of the doubt (a fine only).

Player Y, after the ball has left the vicinity, hits a player in the head with an elbow, while airborne, and gets off completely!

Player Z commits a rough shepherd, catches a player high, gets off completely.

Player ZZ commits a fair shepherd, catches a player high, and cops a week.

Nothing to see here.

Add in the AFL's sanctimony about "the head is sacrosanct", "the look of the incident", "potential to cause injury" ... These are merely mahjongg tiles to the AFL, to be used when convenient and held back when not.

At the same time, Rampe climbing the goal post exposed the AFL on another front.

The way the rule is worded, the player must have the intention to shake the post. As it was, it appeared Rampe was trying some ludicrous stunt whereby he might touch the ball before it went through. (Like so many rules of the game, that one is worded poorly and ill-thought out. It should forbid interfering with the goal post, which would cover many ills while not barring incidental contact while marking, tackling, etc.)

Faced with the controversy, the AFL chicken out by first saying the ump was right, then that it wouldn't matter anyway because of the state of the match, thereby giving the umpires licence to decide when to follow the rulebook and when to "go with the vibe" of the moment. (Note AFL: these are not "rules of thumb" or "guidelines", they are, in your own words, the "laws of the game".)

Then to rub it in, having cleared Rampe of wrongdoing, the AFL give him a please explain and a fine. Then victimise him, because they can, over his verbal abuse of the ump. We can now look forward to weekly $10K fines for umpire abuse. (Ha! Ha! Of course I am being flippant.)

Gil is the one who needs the please explain.

The laws of the game (and their "interpretation", another sick joke not extant in any other sport) have never been as fluid as they are now. Confusion is at an all time high, precedent means nothing, and umpires are now given licence to factor in "the vibe".

Gil has lost the plot. If these matters have him flailing to this extent, he has evidently lost his footballing moral compass and is no longer fit to head the controlling body. We appreciate the cheaper pies, Gil, but the game is slipping away from you, and from us, the fans.

Often players develop into snipers as they age and start to realise they aren't quite as quick as they used to be.
So they resort to giving out the odd clip to these younger faster upstarts.

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year.

    In the opening round of the 2018 VFL season, the Casey Demons enjoyed an emphatic 107 point victory over Coburg at Piranha Park. The team was loaded with Melbourne listed players (half a dozen of them were in the team that beat Fremantle on Saturday) and the side was in its way to a grand final appearance.

    PRETENDERS SENT PACKING by George on the Outer

    Fremantle, the Perth pretenders at sixth on the premiership table should have easily accounted for the Demons, sitting barely a game off the bottom of the ladder.   And for the majority of the game, it certainly looked that would be the case, until the final quarter, when the Demons stopped giving the Dockers easy chances, or making plain, dumb decisions. Not that their situation was helped by some simply appalling umpiring during the match, that kept gifting Fremantle easy scores.  Th
