Also noted Joel Smith's sincere concern for Weitering after the throat knock. Lingered with him, patiently helped him up. The body language was eloquent.

We're definitely the good guys. Will make climbing to being great again all the sweeter.

That doesn't fit in with the short sighted narrative that you need to be ruthless to win matches/premierships!

Maybe i am old school in regard to Oliver's act 

Could it wait until after the game? Maybe he was thinking of Cripps when he gave away that 50 

Yabbie Jeans used to tell his players to lick blood off themselves so the opposition couldn't see them bleed. Thats old school.

Clarry is the ultimate competitor and didn't care it was their captain and the bloke playing on him he still was backing himself to win. Would have won us the game too ig Gawn didnt touch it

I don't know if this has been brought up (sorry if it has somewhere else but ice buried my head in the sand after Friday).

How Weitering wasn't taken off or put under concussion protocol astounds me. He shouldnt be playing this week.

Rules for some different rules for others? The AFL is corrupt

If Smith hadn't have helped him up he may have been down long enough to force their hand to take him off to do the concussion test. This would have made a significant difference in the last couple of minutes. 

I couldn't believe neither Clarry or Vines notified the Ump that Cripps was bleeding. This is an absolute no brainer and no issue around sportsmanship as far as I'm concerned. Is done all the time in games. It would have forced him off the ground at a critical stage of the game. It was a no brainer and a bad miss.

I'm somewhat confused about all of this. I'm all for gallantry, all for good sportsmanship ...all for a good fair game etc.

I'm just not 100% about how this should apply to what took place. Quite possibly it's not for the players to call out each other. I really don't know if that happens so have nothing to gauge by.

Whilst I don't think it was for him to displace Cripps from playing I'm equally of the thinking it wasn't for him to help facilitate it either. To say it had al lthe possibility of an event-changing outcome is not far fetched.  I would wonder if in the  reverse would there be a similar outcome ?? Same Weitering 

We are talking about the long fingered Bluebaggers who are fond of a good 'story" !!

I'll just put it all in the "strange umpiring " basket..A lot of that happens at Melb - Blues games doesn't it !!

i don't understand why we have such a restrictive blood rule these days. the hiv days hysteria is surely passe

the nrl is much bloodier, yet they don't send players off for just a drop of blood

While it started as a HIV scare, as a player, I never particularly wanted to get someone else's blood all over me.

Playing rugby union, and having an opposition prop bleeding from the face ahead of a scrum was not a particularly comfortable experience.

I guess I am still bitter that we lost. But seriously Carlton and their obnoxious [censored] supporters can go and get [censored]!

Patrick Cripps "monstered" us in the semi final. The way he gets hand balls out while getting tackled is absolutely incredible. He is a super star player.

Maybe I'm an [censored], but I would have dobbed Patrick Cripps in for the blood rule. No doubt about it.

Sometimes doing the right thing can be the wrong thing.

Being nice is seen as being weak.

You gotta be ruthless to win finals. Just look at what Collingwood did in regards to Brayden "the Thug" Maynard knocking out Angus Brayshaw?! Or Mason Cox intentionally trying to injure Max Gawn and Christian Petracca!? They came after us with intent to hurt and injure! To win at all costs!

Dobbing someone in to the blood rule is comparatively quite harmless and only enforcing the rules. If it meant the difference in beating Carlton with Patrick Cripps off the ground for those crucial few minutes then I would have dobbed him in every single time.

blood streaming everywhere - sure

drop of blood from small scratch - no

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res
