  1. Why would she care? Why would Gil care? Why would Dillon care? Why would Christian care? They get their money no matter what. Football loses, fans lose. Litigation brings some justice to the likes of Frawleys and Brayshaw but yeah nah. The game is lost to the dollar. Go to the local footy and support your club. In fact, write a letter to one of their major financial partners as they matter the most to the AFL hierarchy. I sat next to a table of AFL execs on Friday and it's all about their partners interests.
  2. I thoroughly recommend watching our Women's team chook. They are wonderful to watch right now. https://www.afl.com.au/aflw/video/1030305/aflw-match-replay-gws-v-melbourne?videoId=1030305&modal=true&type=video&publishFrom=1694379600001&references=AFL_MATCH:5758
  3. Gil McLachlan, what a legacy you've delivered. Match day experience is horrible. The game is becoming a mess The MRO is a farce. Roy and HG have been calling you the murderer for years. They are spot on. You've killed this game for many of us. But not your financial partners hey.
  4. Breathe fire this Friday boys. Please breathe fire.
  5. So yep, roughly .25 of a second to not only react but play the shot from a fast bowler. Answer to How fast does the batsman need to react to a 150kph ball? by Sajit Nair https://www.quora.com/How-fast-does-the-batsman-need-to-react-to-a-150kph-ball/answer/Sajit-Nair-10?ch=15&oid=59324104&share=b8005139&srid=hVtjez&target_type=answer
  6. Yep, the premeditation here is all from the AFL. We'll go hard, suspend for 3 weeks but here's a get out of jail card under the table for the appeal. Because AFL ❤️ Collingwood. Because AFL ❤️ controversy Because AFL ❤️ their broadcast partners and will protect them at all costs. This league is corrupt and a waste of time. Do not rejoice at the suspension. It will get overturned.
  7. My biggest questions are. 1. While deliberation has continued, have they provided Maynard with a colouring book and crayons? 2. Is it a Collingwood colouring book so he only needs one crayon and doesn't get confused having to choose different colours?
  8. After I smothered the ball ?.? I looked down and thought sxxt he's there = Gus's fault for somehow getting in Maynard's way by the looks.
  9. They'd both be ripper blokes and good mates of MC I'd reckon
  10. I watched the replay yesterday KDF and I'd agree it flattened us but we were pretty much on top of them from 10 mins to go right through to the end. That's what made it so gut wrenching to still lose after dominating for more than half a game.
  11. I think Mundy has really summed it up well. Better than almost anyone. It would have been an awkward collision and most likely they would have ended in a tangle. He had time to think, turn, and tuck his shoulder in for impact. Gone
  12. Caro Wilson was claiming a very similar story on offsiders on Sunday. So that's two different media shows saying the same thing.
  13. Mmmm 3 to 5 weeks, flowers choccies and a bottle of wine. If Maynard misses the granny, I will start a GoFundMe to allow all Dlanders to contribute 10cents each towards delivering him a cask of coolabah and a bunch of stinging nettles and some laxettes.
  14. I wish there was a further paragraph that read "it was at this point as Maynard was leaving the residence that he tripped on the front door door frame and somehow fell head first into the brick letter box in the front yard several times. Maynard had to have surgery to remove the metal letterbox plate from his broken jaw. Multiple Melbourne players were able to verify the details of the unfortunate accident". Quote from Jack Viney "I gave the poor bugger a soft pat on the back with both hands to console him, similar to the pat on the back that Ed Langdon got running into an open goal which made his kick miss and go through for a point in the third quarter. Nothing in it really. It all happened so quickly, we had no time to react to Maynard's head being rammed into the brick fence repeatedly. It was a pure domestic accident (sic act)" Surgeons hope to save at least two of Maynard's remaining teeth.
  15. Such a great point.I thought exactly the same thing. A bottle of red wine really? Just a big stunt. Such a genuine guy hey. He deliberately chose to drive his shoulder into Gus's head. I can only wonder what Danielle wanted to do with that bottle of wine when he showed up on their doorway.
  16. Caro came out really hard on Maynard and the AFL on offsiders. Said Michael Chirtians position as mRO chairperson is no longer tenable after he initially refused to even cite Maynard for the shoulder into Gus's head. Evidently Laura Kane stepped in and told him he had to. I'd think Caro would strongly argue the case for Maynard going to Bali early. Anyway, none of it probably matters. I reckon we've lost a champion player and it's incredibly sad for him, his family and our club. I hope the players move on from sadness to full on fire breathing anger this week.
  17. I think we're witnessing the most dominant Melbourne team in our club's history. They are looking close to faultless and extremely hungry. The last 30 seconds they were still chasing and gang tackling.
  18. What a great team to watch. I think Mackin is going to be an absolute gun for us by the end of this season.
  19. Haha I was thinking exactly the same thing. So good to watch a Melbourne team with fast transition through the centre and always looking to centre it around that dangerous 25 to 35m out. A pleasure to watch. Get Mick on the coaching team for the blokes next year. Midfield or forwards coach.
