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

I recall my mom taking my 10 year old nimble hands to grab a bargain at the supermarket before it closed for 48 hours or thereabouts this time of year many moons ago.

What an appalling display of umpiring. It was actually a great contest until ruined by the umpires in their determination to get Carlton over the line. The commentary was comical too. It's reasonable to call out poor decisions without sinking the boots into the umpires, but there was nothing.  In this case, the boots should have been well and truly sunk in as they were clearly shifting the momentum of the game away from North. Good on them for battling on despite the obvious bias.

Let’s not get too carried away. The free kick count favoured Carlton by 21 to 20. North gave away a lot of frees because its lack of talls meant that its defenders were often under the pump in marking contests. 

One of the reasons for its loss were pre match injuries to key defenders and the injury to Larkey.

interesting games today. i have picked sound  ‘outsiders’ today

Tigers are old, but have rested Cotch and Jack. Dogs have far too much in the midfield for them to handle imo

Freo could easily win, over 4 quarters should get it done  but i’m not confident enough to put money on them

The saints are due a blow out given them long list of injuries. Can the Suns back up last week? i reckon they can

Port will be breathing fire after last week but surely the swans still win  Swans by 10 pts

I can't believe dimma is resting both cotchin and riewoldt. It's round 4. If I was Bevo I'd be secretly relieved but a bit insulted at the same time. I would not be surprised to see the doggies win. 

Sydney v port will be interesting. after last weeks result port would want to show something.

I’d be “resting” Riewoldt too. As good as he’s been over his career, unfortunately I reckon he is a passenger in the forward line this year, hasn’t done anything particularly memorable and should have retired last year.

A few on the Sainters bandwagon and good luck to them and the club. We know their pain.

But they haven't really been tested as yet. They are going OK but their wins have all been in Melbourne. They just beat Freo and they did a good job against the dogs and and did beat the Don's.

I guess they will be certs for beating Gcs at Marvel again and stay on top.

Despite this I'm not convinced they are a top 4 team.

Has anyone else noticed the biased umpiring in favour of Carlton?

There should be a class action over this umpiring.

Do Visy still manufacture brown  paper bags?

Lions v Magpies 

1. Lions very very hard to beat at home 

2. Magpies lack of a ruckman is a weakness to exploit 

3. Magpies goalkicking accuracy in 2022 was amazing. In round 3 & 4 it’s been woeful. 
4. Nick Daicos seriously must be favourite for the Brownlow 

5. Charlie Cameron loves it when the Lions are front runners

Kangas v Blues 

1. Carlton rely on Curnow and McKay. But they are seriously very good. 
2. Kangas youngsters are impressive.  Simpkin, Sheezel, LDU and they’ll add Wardlaw in next few weeks. 
3. Kangas poor goalkicking and Larkeys injury hurt their chances. 
4. Blues need Sam Walsh in. He’s run was missed and he will be a key to their premiership chances 

5. Umpires in 3rd quarter were horribly favouring Carlton. It killed North to see Blues get so many frees whilst they didn’t get one for the last 20 minutes in the 3rd. Best comment about the umps. No comment.

Yes and another reason was pathetic, one sided umpiring. The free kick count is not the determining factor of poor umpiring. It is when blatantly bad decisions continually go to one side and then change the momentum and ultimately the result of the game.

If I was a Roos fan I would be livid just like the Giants fans were last week. Coincidentally against the same team.

With any luck Tigers win and Chopper has one of his mental episodes at the post game presser.All fun and happiness come Easter.

Not enough reason to hope Richmond will win. Close to my most despised team. It starts with Tom Lynch. He's just one of those players who always taking cheap shots behind the play and then getting favoured by soft frees from the umps. Go Doggies!

    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

    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.
