Sounds like a great idea all round.  I'm sure it must be a [censored] call for a club doctor to have to make anyway.

It is part of their job.
Allir Allir assessment should have been open and shut.
Same the bloke with "the migraine." 😒

The current ladder is a great example of how uneven the fixture is, and how it makes teams look much better than they are.

The Saints are 5th and I reckon every team down to 15th would pick them to play if they had to pick a side above.

I think the Saints are the worst 5th placed team after Rd 20 there has ever been.

Alliir was unconscious and lying motionless for some seconds.  That is criteria #1 and #10 respectively on page six of AFL/AFLW guidelines.  #1 prohibits return to play.  #10 requires first an assessment before return but is trumped by #1.

Jones had #5  Dazed, blank/vacant stare   and   #9. Player reports significant, new or progressive concussion symptoms, i.e. migraine.  These both require immediate removal and no return to play.  

And out for two weeks.

This excessive detail is to indicate that is quite cut and dried rather than to annoy you.

I think they might take it away from club doctors and make it independent.

That would mean the AFL to pay for independent doctors at all games costing a nice $$$$$ yet still cannot pay for professional umpires. Knee jerk reaction by the AFL if they do as most club doctors would be diligent to the protocols around possible concussion. It would however delete bias decisions by clubs by putting players in the firing line for future illness's and suing the AFL.

Hey Wadda. I think our record at AO is something like 10-5 with a steady five-goal average-winning-margin, including a 2011 last-round seven-point tank and neutral loss to Essendon this year (with another crucial neutral win over Brisbane in 2021). Under Goody's tenure, starting with the 2017 upset over the Crows, I think we're even better. Have faith my friend - woo-hoo!

Hey Sku,

Ok i hear ya, i didnt realize it was that good. I know we had a purple patch at Adelaide for a while there. Still i personally dont like the idea of playing Port and their feral crowd if we can possibly avoid it. But we have to tackle all senarios if we are truly the Champs, which i believe we are. Bring em on.

I’m a terrible person and I’ll probably go straight to hell for saying this but Zorko copping a bruising squeeze of the nuts makes me so happy. I’m highly amused by it. I laugh every time I hear about it. If I had to pick one player to suffer this fate it’d be hands down him. I’ve even contemplated sending Touk a thank you card but that might be taking things a little too far. I’m happy enough basking in the joy of it, silently (except for the sound of thunderous peals of laughter) and many times. 🥳

No where near far enough I would have thought @WalkingCivilWar. At a minimum, in no particular order, I would suggest:

  • A knighthood
  • A license to operate all McDonald's in Queensland
  • An oligarch's yacht
  • An exemption to paying GST on alcohol and ?*& for the rest of his life
  • A lifetime job on Channel 7 talking [censored] on Friday nights.

And of course the grub Zorko had the hide to snidely whinge about it. He is a filthy piece of human who deserves everything he gets. Dish it out but.....

Titus O’Reilly’s take on the incident. You don’t have to read too hard between the lines to realise he may agree with you WCW. 

“I’ve got a lot of sympathy for Zorko; there’s no cleaner player in the AFL”

Trust that tiny nutted [censored] of a human to be a snitch and a cry baby. Don’t see players going to the AFL crying that you eye gouged them you absolute clown. 
If there is a less respected player in the AFL, I would be shocked. A real piece of trash!

If what Zorko is accusing Touk of is exactly what happened then Touk had breached a rule and should miss games.

However we're talking about someone with form here and apparently proud of it. Forget the code, forget letting bygones be bygones, forget it could have been accidental (it was a tackle after all) let's go whinge to the first media outlet that will have us as we're known to do.

The way he said there was bruising still there sounded like bull but that's just me. I would sincerely hope not.

Dane Zorko is the kid that pours salt into your coca cola at a restaurant when you're not looking and thinks it's funny, can be hard to believe people like that when serious.

Sick of seeing him on the news in Brisbane. Epitome of a grub for mine and I can't stand him.

    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
