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.

They will attempt to control your morality, speech and personal beliefs.

You must resist at every opportunity and tell these maggit to eat [censored] wherever you see them, be it AFL, schools, media or the workplace.

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.

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis.
