Can anyone tell me why he wears a black sleeve on his left arm? Have I missed something?

it’s a compression sleeve. 

think he is better now and it is a bit of a signature like MJ’s one glove.

On AFL360 he said it was to give a little bit of protection to the arm and the scarring caused by a serious post-op infection. Probably helps him mentally as well given the serious nature of the break and the wound suffered.  Impressive by him to come back as he has.

JB said they're coming off a 6 day break, they are coming back from Adelaide, not Perth or Darwin. it's a 30 minute flight.

They were just outplayed tonight 

Have you tried to catch a domestic flight lately? I reckon you’d spend 3 hours on a plane to fly from tulla to Essendon !

I thought the Pies were slightly off their game from the first bounce.

Sidebottom was moving like a glacier.

And De Goooooey, terrible disposal and couldn't break the tackle of an auskicker

Are they tiring? There last 3 rounds are tough games. Hopefully they cop a few injuries and get bundled out in straight sets…..the only thing better than that is us winning the flag. In fact the trifecta is the Pies going out, us winning and then getting Harley Reid. Can you imagine the celebrations? I mean seriously, that’s a life changing chain of events. Anything after that is of little consequence.

go Dee’s, unleash Hell

So, can I be first to declare the opening of Colliwobble season?

Bit early this year, but climate change is messing up all of these natural cycles.

the Pies are winning based on system. They have some average players out there. 

How good was it to see Cox crack the naannies on the bench?

Moore 8 clangers!

Do frees against count as clangers? Moore gave away a few frees in the last.

C'mon man.
They were on fire early.
Marking everything in the F50 and kicked 2.2 before Carlton scored.

Also got a few doggy frees which helped. UMPIRE ALERT. Watch for #23. Some weird interpretations.

I really don't want Power to win the minor premiership. 

Were Pies fatigued last night or are Carlton a good side. Was their Power win legit or did Power rest too many players?

They have had some soft opposition of late but they did look good last night. They have a good run home from here too.

No chance port will finish top.  

Tough game tonight, cats at kp next week.

Easy last three games, but they are effectively 3 games behind the pies - 8 points plus 20 odd percentage. 

Even if they don't lose another game, pies would have to drop 3 of their last 4 games.

Don't think it will be a tough game for them tonite. No Rankine or Roshellli for the crows is a huge loss.

    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

    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.
