  1. This is the year Jake Melksham came of age on the demonland forums.
  2. History will record that the only two times collingwood has beaten us in a final since ww2 was courtesy of their roughouse, dirty tactics in 1958, and then in 2023, courtesy of the AFL-sanctioned poleaxing of one of our key playmakers.
  3. Said in an article that the top six vote getters were also top 6 in the coaches award...but that's just confirmation bias, with umpires ticking off the box beside the big name players.
  4. Has anyone had a chew on this? https://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/afl/news/wreck-it-ralph-the-targets-melbourne-should-aim-for-in-the-trade-and-free-agency-market/news-story/0a34d0a0e4aff0a8d41090dcc974b5c5
  5. They take the first option, like a top premier league team. We are always stopping and propping with no options upfield.
  6. GWS play with no fear. (Unlike us: we seemed mentally fatigued). Maynard certainly would not attempt to poleaxe Toby Greene, he would get his face caved in. Would be excellent to see Collingwood get knocked over after their recent AFL-approved performances.
  7. JVR gets a week and disgraceful tribunal lets Maynard off. Tells you all you need to know about the thugs running the AFL, not to mention their goons and cheer squad in the media. Bring on class actions and get these glass box execs into a courtroom where they can defend their "footy actions" in a public forum.
  8. Haven't seen it mentioned here but great to see the old boys code of football violence swept away by new broom, Laura Kane. The sooner these "nothing to see" drongoes are removed from media positions, the better. It's football, not headball.
  9. About time someone started making sense around here. The solution lies in plain sight. And if sonething did click, it could be the catalyst that we so absolutely need at this moment.
  10. Making a statement and taking out a key playmaker. A time-honoured footy act, practised in finals. Like the last time Collingwood beat Melbourne in a finsl, and Murray Weidemann took out Ron Barassi. Or the 1990 GF when Essendon snipers tried to stop Collingwood. All for us patrons in the Colisseum, who want to see blood, who want to see highlights reels of "footy acts".
  11. Keep May well away, what can he do, other than get himself reported. A mini team meeting to show dissent resolve against Maynard's behaviour.
  12. I would hate to see knee to the head disappear out of our game...
  13. Aussie rules supporters are just brainwashed into lauding this so-called manly "split-second" stuff. Is this writer saying the coach is wrong as well? These are the kind of head hits that future class-actions are made of and intimidatory behaviour should be called out and suspensions applied when they are attempted . CTE is too strong an issue to protect the perpetrator ahead of the victim/ball-carrier..
  14. Hilarious how the commentariat have created a new legal precedent of "duty of care to yourself" concept. Nice misdirection Brian and friends. The duty of care is what you owe to another ie Brayshaw. It is not a slogan to bandy around and legitimise unduly rough play to another. Anyway, Maynard was hardly in a passive position where he had to "protect himself". Fortunately for Maynard, he does not now have to consult a lawyer this morning and sue himself.
  15. A travesty if any of of these prognostications come to pass. In this millenium you don't need to knock players out with your shoulder.
  16. BT king's Counsel for violence in football
  17. I have a friend of a friend here in Warragul who kept a beautiful scrapbook of 1964. She was a member even back then. And l would like to share a photo l took of her club member's medalliin from that year. Go Deeeez!
  18. After all, this is Australia. If you can't niggle, jumper punch, harass and berate a player off the ball, what's the country coming to. Australia rues rules football. Sock it to 'em, Simon.
  19. There are NO rules in Australian rules football. As soon as that rule is appreciated then you can enjoy the game.
  20. Lever or May. Otherwise the cupboard is bare. We can't win without a narking forward.
