AFL manufactured result

Every year there's an AFL favoured team, in 21 it was us, last year clearly the Pies

Blues this year

Will be interesting to see who gets the rub when they play GWS or GCS

In the last 50 years, provide one instance when the VFL/AFL favored us?

In the end, bad decisions usually even out over the course of a season.
 

Try telling that to an Adelaide fan last year. One poor umpire decision cost them a spot in the finals

Yes, yes, someone will say they shouldn't have left the finals spot up to one kick. Nevertheless that goal umpire knocked them out of finals contention

He's an honest plodder is JJ. I remember someone on here predicted he was the next Pendleberry (or someone similar). I almost choked on my Cornies that morning.

Yes it was a strange decision by JJ to leave and choose Sydney.  Swans have plenty of mids and also added Adams.  JJ is likely to be squeezed out again!!! I’m surprised he didn’t pick somewhere like the Crows or Hawks.

I’m not sure of the rule but IMO the dissent free kick should’ve taken place in the centre square.

I think it depends on when it was said, and how far back the ball was to the middle. I think there's this weird mid point where a free after a goal places the ball where they are on the field (or in the centre if it's team's defensive area), and then conversely where if a free kick is given it is out of the middle.

Because I think it happened in the immediate aftermath of the goal it meant it gets taken where it happened.

I've probably explained it poorly.

You don't think the bye before '21 GF helped Maysie?

Or that we were well established in WA during lockdown, whereas Bulldogs came from SA into isolation before the granny?

Also Cotterill was allowed to play on from a free and goal when Freo players stopped and then with a few minutes to go and Dockers up, they got a free, played on to the wing and ready to go in and score and umpire brought it back. Carlton then got dodgy decision and win it.

Game turning decision.

I counted 5 consecutive game turning decisions in that period...miss one, maybe. Two, possible. But to miss 5 consecutively when the game was on the line...totally disgraceful.

Ummm what?

The pre grand final bye had nothing to do with May’s hamstring. It was in place long before we even made the grand final. It was there to enable the game to be played in WA according to their strict quarantine Covid rules. 

As for the Dogs, they didn’t finish top 4 so didn’t get to pick where they wanted to play their “home” finals. They made the grand final the long way, by needing to play an away prelim against a side that finished above them. 

I am really not sure how any of that was the AFL helping us. It would have been the same if Geelong, Port or Brisbane made the grand final instead.

They were the away team for the Prelim so not much could be done there.

Are you talking about James Brayshaw (JB) and Andrew Brayshaw?

They are not father and son

Edit, just realised I misunderstood. My bad

had to duck out so missed the end of the Froe Carlton game. I've just watched the last 5 mins. 

the touch would have been difficult for the ump to pick up.

Jackson tapped a ball straight to the Carlton player to set up their go-ahead goal. One of the dumbest taps you will ever see. 

Carlton are kissed on the [censored] this year. God help us all if they win a flag. I'll have to move overseas for a couple of months if it happens.

Won't be once they put a chip in the ball for AFL games

Potential to become a pandora's box

It’s always horrible seeing Carlton win, but this one, that way, was just sickening.

Due to the severity of that hammy injury I'm not sure the extra week made that much difference to his recovery anyway.

Quite entertaining to watch the live ladder ATM, with Geelong and Melbourne separated by .1% and constantly swapping ladder positions.

Geelong has an extremely soft fixture this year. Will be found out come finals time.

    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

    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.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
