  1. Donald Trump. He would be excellent at re-arranging the bench to help guarantee favourable outcomes.
  2. Having said that it would be fair to say that the game has become un-umpireable. Retarding players off the ball, "nudges" in the back when flying for the ball, "ball" decisions ... it is impossible to guess which way the umpires are going to call half the time. 50 metre penalties are an extravagant penalty on many occasions. Insufficient intent... what a laughable rule. Mens rea, indeed.
  3. Soft modern-day football boots is the problem. The past players' association should insist on our players only wearing Ron Barassi boots with appropriate metal caps (ouch, kicking in danger) and thick leather soul and hard leathered skin.
  4. In strict football parlance probably should be "Jack the blind miner.." (From the Mike Williamson book of hyperbole, exaggerations and commentary prose".
  5. Watching him bounce EITHER hand was something else...
  6. Apologies if this already posted somewhere. (Brodie In) https://www.afl.com.au/news/992852
  7. The AFL will no doubt put it on their Gettable" segment: "We make the rules, we break them."
  8. Like doing Special Comments on Demonland, for example. No one knows l thought that.
  9. Great Scot! And not so great Scott.
  10. Essendon out of the 8 on the live ladder (just quietly).
  11. The umpire's dodgy ball up with ten seconds on the clock was an utter disgrace.
  12. Wasn't it Whately who memorably extolled Petracca's dribbler in the '21 GF as being "TRULY from the top shelf". He still has credits for that...
  13. Then again, if you were sympathetic to the myopic cartoon character, "Mr.Magoo", it's easy to spot the mix-up...
  14. Essingdon won't bea Geelong at Geelong, and they won't beat Collingwood. There's two.
  15. The umpires don't so much as umpire, as blow the whistle and point left or right. (@17.57, unrewarded Dee taclle).
  16. See that Simon, Ben Brown is our full forward.
  17. Hand tackling should be banned, inherently dangerous. Not envisaged in rules.
  18. BBB a premiership hero, is one of our top full forwards of the last 60 years. 1. Neitz 2. Bennett 3. Jakovich 4. Dillon 5. Brown 6. Robertson 7. Parke If Melbourne is seriously contending this year the selection committee will need to swallow their pride and get him back in the team.
  19. That is a very good point. At the very least, the intention of the Geelong player is to make heavy contact. So he has responsibility or duty of care for what follows.
  20. Ron Barassi didn't break through as a gun player until a role was invented for him... that being ruck-rover. This suggestion may be howled down etc but why not play Grundy as a mid/ruck-rover? He could tag-team with Gawn then. The competition may never look the same. When one of these players gets tired they could rest in the back pocket, a la Ted Lees.

  21. 'Rohan' Connolly, lol... is that his moniker a la Nathan/Gary Lyon?
  22. If you watch the other games on a kayo binge weekend this little melodrama repeats itself holus-bolus. The main problem is the shape of the football. Of course, a good full forward would be helpful.
  23. Stunk up badly at the selection table, anomalies abound. BBB having an excellent start to the season then relegated to Casey, can't get back in despite us having an average forward line. Tomlinson, breakout game v Collingwood... surely "no change" is the applicable team-first messaging. Petty, straight back in, despite the erstwhile practice of easing injured players back ...through Casey. Can't take any of it too seriously when punters preside over selections. Demons, gamble responsibly.
