  1. This Facebook post from Everything Hawks that I just saw made me smile with satisfaction: "Can’t stop, won’t stop 💛🤎 It may have just been North Melbourne, but boy does it feel better being a winner come Monday 🔥🤝" Guys in the video clip is going off in celebration as well. https://fb.watch/rDnkmy_Y29/?mibextid=Nif5oz
  2. And Kozzie also got a week for the Adelaide thing for less than Greens act. Green jumped, his shoulder made high contact with medium impact - that's about the logic that got applied to Kozzie. Additionally, Green can hardly use the Charlie Cameron (I'm an angle that's never offended before) [censored]. See ya later Toby. BTW, I like Green, but after seeing Kozzie go for what he did, I've got zero sympathy for other clubs loosing players to the tribunal for high contact... I just wish they'd hit that scum Maynard with an 8 week retrospective ban a few games out from finals.
  3. Ingo was a gun. A few others we picked up from other clubs in that era went all right as well: Peter Rohde Marcus Seecamp
  4. Can one of our sponsors please pay for Jason Taylor to have a holiday in Ireland over the Australian summer?
  5. How good is it to see a No.39 in the Red and Blue out on the G again!!!
  6. That's not how the tribunal saw it though, they said he elected to bump didn't they? And sorry, but I see an elbo raise, a conscious effort to bump or anything. It happens in a split second. He didn't line him up and follow through like Plugger. In reality, I don't really think he did either. He was contesting the ball, was a split second late ...and he jumped. The AFL needs a new rule - no jumping. Like others I'm so frustrated at the lack of consistency from with the AFL. They seem to grade impact level on consequence (i.e. is the player concussed or not) for everyone else but us. The guy got straig back up imeediatley and wasn't anywhere near needing a concussion test, let alone being subbed out (or knocked out cold for 5mins per Gus). Kossie is a huge loss to our side. We have him Rd 0 in the tropics and we might have even won that game.
  7. Yep and if Kossie had taken the ball, kicked it up feild and we goal, it's probably play on and considered a football act.
  8. ...I'll add that Fox Footy's reporting on this incident has been as disgraceful as the tribunal's handling of it. They have been gunning for Kossie to be suspended from the start and the suckers at the AFL have been more than happy to play along. Just look at the below sensationalist headline for a recent example: ‘I’m scared of training with him’; Demons superstar defends Pickett after another ban https://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/teams/melbourne-demons/im-scared-of-training-with-him-demons-superstar-defends-pickett-after-another-ban/news-story/b26f75a9c6d0204e9117ce44627119f9 Pretty clear from reading that Trac is scared of getting caught from the awsome chasing and tackling defensive pressure that Kossie applies rather than being physically scared for his wellbeing.
  9. So f###ing angry at this suspension. Look at it in real time and it's nothing like the Maynard thug thing. He converges from the side and glances him. The action never had the same potential to do injury as Maynard did, because he wasn't charging straight at him from the polar opposite direction. Our defence was totally valid, he never lined him up, didnt elect to bump the player, the time he has his arm tucked in for a split second and flys across the front of him, barely brushing him. It was low impact and wasn't a bump - please change the thread title accordingly to "Kossy glance on Soligo". From the reporting I've heard of it, the contemptuous way the AFL tribunal dismissed our case against is a disgrace. I bring back the example of Chol from a few weeks back where a 6'10" 95kg giant planted his knee with the monentuum and full weight of his body, right into the back of his opponents head at the point where the spine meets the scull, which is apparently ok, because it wasn't a 'bump'. These people are a joke and I'm sick of our team and our players being their play things and scape goats.
  10. Lol. Love your work Andy. Part of me just wants to jump in that DeLorean and dial up till the part on GF day at The MCG, where we are 40 points up and pulling away from our opponent - but then it's all about 'The Journey' Do expect Brisbane will be hard to beat as they are essentially playing for their season at this point, but I'm encourged by what I've seen from us so far this season and think some of our players have got more gears to change up too. Looking for us to keep winning and building in the first half of the season, keeping a fit list well managed and then perfect our game and make our run in earnest in the run home.
  11. Trac: "He doesn't like Collingwood, do you?" - Gold.
  12. Ok, yeah I've had the occational minor issue with Kayo, but on the whole I find it much better than it was paying through the nose for the footy on Foxtel.
  13. I dunno? It just did - am I missing something? I was up in Brisbane and the game had already finished. I wasn't that drunk spilling the red wine everywhere if that's what you're inferring - I'm just naturally a bit ditsy and uncoordinated!!
  14. Big spender - go hard or go home! (Not that I'm a gambling man or endorsing that discusting industry)
  15. Respectively, May is like the impenetrable great wall of China - can see him from space...and he keeps the rabbits out.
  16. Had a similar red wine spill the other night at my hotel trying to set myself up at a motel I was staying. Was trying to plug a phone charger in besides the bedside table, forgetting that I'd just put a glass of red on same bedside table - oops. Ended up all over the white bedsheets. After vain attempts to rinse from the sheet, I gave up and just watched the replay of our Adelaide win on my phone's Kayo app.
  17. This Barrosa game has to be a MFC game. Package deals will include a picnic blanket and Charcuterie board, as well as a shuttle from your hotel in a Range Rover.
  18. So asides from the GF being always at the MCG, I feel this is such a faux argument. Yes the Vic teams travel less, but they don't have anything like the home ground advantage of the interstate teams for the most part, because so many games against the other Vic teams just end up being neutral, without a real home ground advantage. Leigh Mathew's is close spot on. Our draw this year got somewhat harder by having to play another away game (and playing it off a 5 day break at that). The only saving grace was that being consecutive, we could do the mini-hub thing and that Adelaide aren't in good form. The only thing I'd change from what Leigh is saying, is that it doesn't make so much sense to have both Adelaide teams play each other as that would likely reduce overall match attendance, by likely having just the one sell out at Adelaide oval between the home state sides rather thàn two. Solution ìn my mind is just to drop the number of actual playing Rds in the season back to what is was before, so there are equal home and away for all teams, so the Adelaide one's still end up with as many as anyone else by seasons end.
  19. Could agree more, accept that I'm really hoping the club does appeal and I think there a reasonable chance we will. Kossies was nothing like Maynard scum's hit. Converged from the side and made minimal contact as opposed to a full on charge that was dangerous from the start. You could sense Goody being [censored] off in his presser that the media were turning their attention and gunning for Kossie to be rubbed out. "Has made alot of changes to his game ... it looked pretty light" I seem to remember his words. Really sick of us being made scape goats like this. They recon Ginivan has been denied free kicks, I think Kossie is being targeted by match review in a social sense. Loosing a player of Kossies quality for important games like the clash against Brisbane - enough is enough. Everyone else appeals for stuff much more, it's about time we stood up for our players and team a bit more in this respects.
  20. Agree - he's been on us right from the start of the season. Was calling out that he thought the of feild turmoil could have the effect of galvanizing the team when everyone else was writing us off and adding to the pile on. It's been quite refreshing really. Also makes me laugh how some of the networks have reported that we've had a purple patch of form to start the season 3W - 1L (now 4W - 1L). Wouldn't so much call that a purple patch when we've done it practically the last 3 seasons in a row prior, I'd just say that we've been performing up to existing standards and expectations for the team.
