We might have booked Scully but the rest of the comp didn't. It's bloody stupid unless you're north supporters.

North weren't even playing tonight!

Every club participates in the draft, and every club's supporters have the right to expect their #1 pick to at least see out the first contract.

What about every club not involved and their spectators?

Once again excuse my ignorance but how did he avoid seeing out that contract?

I think you are right. I can’t work out what rule a number of these so called frees are awarded for. 

28 frees to  St K, 14 to Port. 
Absolutely every 50:50 decision went to the Saints. The Marvel crowd( all Saints) definitely influenced the Umpires by screaming for frees the whole match.

We Demon supporters have got to try to influence the imps like that, but it’s harder at the bigger MCG, and we rarely have a crowd  that all goes for us .

He had his foot out the door half way before his first season was over and requested a trade to Port.

North could have held him to his contract but seemed both parties thought a split was better.

North have done well out of the deal regardless with Sheezel and Wardlaw, who hasn't played yet. Wardlaw is an explosive mid who will be a gun, assuming he gets on the park (injury prone with hammy issues last year).

Feel free to 🤮 on this post. 

 

Carn crows!

Funnily enough, if Crows get up and and both Bombers and Lions win, there will be 7 teams at the top of the ladder separated only by percentage.

I've never booed a player because they stiffed a club other than mine. 

Only one, and I will not mention his name.  Hint- went to GW$ then Hawks

Imagine changing your employer and then turning up to site with all the proper accreditation, head out and get booed by 'stakeholders', whilst you go about your paid job for 3 hours to provide entertainment for 'stakeholders' on a weekly basis...

Imagine doing so when you are 19.

Imagine thinking, "He's an AFL footballer, it's fair game, it comes with the territory..."

It's an absolute [censored] disgrace by those that do it, and by those that condone it and the apologists.

I am so surprised that where we are culturally in 2023, and how the AFL positions itself around mental health that it has not been addressed by the AFL publicly. The AFL need to disentangle the right to boo about incidents in a match, vs systemic individually directed bullying...

Yes, it's a mental health issue.

The 50m penalty needs to go

I say keep it but I think they could have a 25 m penalty used in conjunction. Not all infractions deserve the same penalty. Just saying.

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
