OK, so now I know I'm not allowed to call the umpire a green maggot.  But I'm allowed to THINK that he is, right?

What happens if I say "I think you're a green maggot, umpire"?

No, no, no. You are not allowed to think! Thinking only gets you into trouble. Let the AFL do your thinking for you. As soon as they make up their own minds they will get back to you.

I expect this comment may even be deleted as some people find individual expression too confronting.

That's what priests are for.   To think on behalf of the flock,  and to give advice...  so people don't think on they're own,  and all start pulling in differing directions.  God forbid...

 

No serious talk to one-another,  or mayhem may breakout.  anger,   outrage,  even some fornication.  Keep unto yourself,  and confess at least once a week. 

Then only the priest him-self knows all the happenings,  or thoughts of...  in-silence. 

 

What a recipe for destruction,  non-learning,  and a mono-culture.....  just ask your alter-boy next door.

It seems our Multi-National directors all sing from that Hymn book...  and take a gold watch...  million$--dollar$  payout at retirement time, (hush money)

... they say,  $ilence i$ Golden.

 

They all seem to shake,  on that score.

 

I believe the AFL also have a similar in-house,  secret handshake

"We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it."  - George Orwell, 1984. 

That press release from the AFL sure sounded like a preach from the pulpit. Sounds like power has gone to their collective heads, telling us what we can and can't do at the football, like we are errant children.

All the leaders of the world are telling the people what they can and cannot do...  and that  'entitlements'  are finished.   But they forgot to tell they're own BIG Business sectors,  the same story lines.

All they want to do,  is cut cut cut,  and leave the masses with nothing to spend. 

Guess what happens when no-ones spending.?     No one is selling either.

Unless they happen to export...  Iron,  Copper,  Aluminium,  Gas...   Minerals and Primary produce.

I watched some of Bob Hawke's State Memorial Service today and what astounded me was his granddaughter's speech about how a treaty was about to be signed for Antarctica to be exploited for its resources in 1989, but her grandfather refused to ratify the agreement and instead set about convincing the rest of the world Antarctica should be a natural reserve, devoted to peace, co-operation and science. How close we came to losing the continent to the mining industry and short term gains with no thought for the future. Hawke spoke of global warming and the consequences for our children and grandchildren 30 years ago. I wasn't even aware of this great legacy he left behind. 

When Hawke spoke he appealed to us as fellow human beings. Now we seem to have leaders and politicians who speak to us as though we are merely consumers who should be grateful for what we manage to attain for our families and not ask for anything else. 

I think this is why the AFL is on the nose at the moment with the fans. They are treating them like consumers who should just pay the money without question and do as they are told. They are forgetting the passion many fans have for their teams. For some their team is deeply ingrained in their life, just as going to church on Sunday is for others. Just as players are not robots, neither are fans. Stop the preaching.

I’m not sure if it’s been reported elsewhere but I heard on the radio this morning that Gil is now placing officials dressed as supporters within the crowd to report (what he deems to be) anti-social behaviour. Gil’s Undercover Gestapo, he’s another step closer to the Fourth Reich.

Everything back then was based more from a humanity angle...  politics had a stronger edge of human heart-felt  decisions...  instead of about getting one up on something,  Gain...  Rock Music was about issues,  about Mandela,  or raising money and awareness of the down trodden...  the Beatles did,  Pink Floyd did,  U2 did,  Bob Geldof,  even Elton did.

There was an honor in our leaders mostly.  One didn't have to look too far,  to find an honorable leader,  who stood for the right things,  for justice,  for fairness,  for the underprivileged,  and for endangered animals,  and Environments in decline.....

For the Longer term,  and not just the one day after this day.

 

People were moved by such higher moral callings,  because they were not so selfish,  as today's mentality.

 I think the difference is/was we all played in the dirt as children, the majority did, and we had a lower more earthy connection to the natural world and so to one another as we had less as youngsters.  So to be given something was,  more special...  than, imo, today's.

I think when things are gotten thru life,  too easily,  then they lose value in the persons perspective,  and it becomes less important,  to the players of the day.

 

Same in footy.   the players like watts... maybe Tracca... and the leaders don't work and struggle their way up the AFL chain,  to the top...  they are head hunted from within a select private schooled 'bunch'............ again gotten too easily.

 

The spoilt make poor leaders... and poor team players as well.                 

 

These are truly,  'the entitled'.

Yes,  I recall vaguely...   and we are back into the same situation now,  with  'China'  trying to make inroads into Antarctica now...  and IIRC,  they have squatted,  on some of our territory down there.???

 

Maybe we should send Greg Hunt,  and Abbott as an Envoy,  down there to smoke out those rascally Chinee,  and send them off with some buckshot on their tails.  That would learn 'Em.

First there was Hal Todd with his occasional rants and then Bob Santamaria with 'Point of View' .... followed by Eric Pearce with his Epilogue.

Now we've got deeluded as a kind of overview of the aforementioned.  The quartet with their unabashed rhetoric that periodically makes sense.

Well, you can't spell 'Biffin' and you can't spell 'maggot' so, while this might seem harsh, I am going to dismiss your conspiracy theorising until you can tidy up the basics.

Somewhat like Melbourne's forwards: won't deliver until they can correct the follow through.

As a father of 2 kids I’m more than happy for offensive, loud and rude fools to be tossed out. The AFL are doing this because the feed back they are getting is that people are sick of the behaviour of a minority of fools ruining their day at the footy.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place.

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September?

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur.
