no game on friday night

what a joke 

It is and they are giving Rugby League free air tonight

And it's a good match too ... Cowboys/Dolphins

Reckon we should dispense with pre-season games and start when RL starts ... 25 game season

Straight into it

And play a game Good Friday evening ... maybe a 6pm start so that the Royal Children's appeal gets the last 3 hours of the day

i wonder how many footy supporters are active christians? but i recognise the hypocrisy of enjoying a day off work when not being religions 

the footy would be a great vehicle to raise money for the appeal. give part of the gate or tv money and promote it

I remember the days when we played very little sport on Sunday's. Cricket Test matches had a rest day on Sunday's back in the day.  Pubs were closed and supermarkets couldn't open either

Times have changed and integration for worthy causes and sport is the new way.  As you said, tie the evening game in with the appeal. It's a no-brainer

This afternoon's game was very much in aid of the Good Friday Appeal. I don't know the exact details though. I suspect that the reason it is an afternoon game rather than an evening one is due to Channel 7 being a major player in the appeal and the evening telethon.

Umps doing what Carlton can't.

It’s actually embarrassing now, two weeks in a row they have been given games, by incompetent officiating.

That non free to Zurhaar is one of  the worst decisions I can recall and no surprise it was number 1 Donlon, who I think even drove the Blues home in their bus.

Just watching a replay of today’s game, can someone please explain why the Kangaroos have green on their jumpers?

I was wondering, given this was a Norf home game, why they couldn’t wear their traditional jumper?  There isn’t even a clash  WTF?

I would say it's a special jumper designed around the good friday appeal that has green in it to & they'll probably be signed and auctioned off for the appeal

The dolphins have stopped. They were up 26-6 before half time

Ha ha!  It was 10-6 when I made that initial post ... a free scoring affair thereafter.  Like an underdog so barracking for the Flippers

Much rather be watching AFL though ... over the 5 days the AFL manage to have 2 games clashing with each other on Saturday night

Bulldogs/Tigers moved from the Saturday twilight slot to tonight with 1 of the Sat evening games played Sat twilight?

Wtf Jesus Christ 

 

interesting case

indigenous man claiming he was sexually assaulted in showers by 3 players in the 80's when he was a 16yo playing in u19's and living in a club owned house.

he is suing club not the alleged assailants. he is unnamed as are the alleged assailants.

given it allegedly happened 40 years ago i doubt anyone working at the club then is still there.

The irony is that the height of the religious day for Good Friday is 3pm. Ceremonies are over by 4pm.

The absence of a night game ???

    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

    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.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
