  1. Isn't that her job though? She openly admits her role is not that of a match report writer. If footballers/administrators/boards are doing the wrong thing, you'd prefer it be swept under the carpet and not have them be held accountable? That's a big part of the role of journalists in all sectors.
  2. It's an interesting point and one that would definitely have been true before 2020. However with the pandemic there seems to be a shift towards people not needing to live as centrally as in the past. Whether that lasts is the question. We've already seen Gawny and Lever move down to the coast which is the same or similar distance to Casey as the inner city. Is it possible we could create an option for players to live on the east coast in a similar way Geelong has on the west? They have attracted superstar players like Danger and Cameron who would only play for Geelong because of geographi
  3. Episode 2 been dropped. How are we feeling now? People still hate it? Agreeing with Kane?
  4. You are wrong and have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about.
  5. Yeah, fair enough. I guess we’ll find out.
  6. Have I missed something? The doco looks like it’s about the 2019/20 preseason. How is that ‘reminding people we’ve been garbage for 50 years’? It doesn’t seem to indicate they’ve dug up footage from the 80s.
  7. Cornes is paid to stir the pot, not too fussed if he wants to get a headline. But the whingers on here are hilarious. You people want minute by minute updates from the club, in depth injury reports, communication on how players are going. Then the club release a behind the scenes doco and you tell them to shut up. Do you think this was Max Gawn’s idea? Do you think Jack Viney is behind the camera? It will likely just be vision of stuff that was happening anyway and we’re all just being given an insight. 95% of the whingers will still watch it. Don’t take the easy negat
  8. The code is Australian Rules Football. There is a Hall of Fame and there are coaches that have been inducted into it. Clarkson will be inducted. My reply was to a poster suggesting Mahoney should have convinced Clarkson or Simpson over to become a coaching director. Nice try on the condescending ‘young un’ too. Didn’t mind it.
  9. Supporter gets angry because Mahoney doesn’t convince Hall of Fame coach to break contract, retire from coaching to take up lesser role on less money at different club. There’s a lot of ‘old man yells at cloud’ about this.
  10. My SISTER just TEXTED me to say the FACEBOOK PAGES ARE SAYING Petracca and Salem have ASKED TO BE TRADED. Everyone have a think about that chain of information. It’s almost as good as ‘someone told me they heard on radio’. Definition of Chinese whispers anyone...
  11. Commenting on performance is all fair game. Stooping to taking personal swipes always says a whole lot more about the person doing the swiping. No one thinks you’re tough. No one thinks you’re funny. Everyone knows you would only do it from the safety of being behind a keyboard. Keep it to discussing performance and we’re all happy to engage.
  12. I always find this stance interesting. Not having a go at you as I’m just generally interested, but what would you like him to say?
  13. What is narcissistic personality disorder? Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) involves a pattern of self-centered, arrogant thinking and behavior, a lack of empathy and consideration for other people, and an excessive need for admiration. Others often describe people with NPD as cocky, manipulative, selfish, patronizing, and demanding. Signs and symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder: Grandiose sense of self-importance Grandiosity is the defining characteristic of narcissism. More than just arrogance or vanity, grandiosity is an unrealistic sense of superiority. Narci
  14. I like that you've bristled up a little here. Some emotion in one of your posts, I'm all for it. Let's see if we can coax out just a little bit of empathy now. 100% of the people you've chosen to lecture in this thread support Goodes. A skewed figure for someone who 'deplores racism'. One thing I'm sure (hope) we agree on is that there was an element of the abuse Goodes received was racially motivated. I think that the majority of it was/is. That is my opinion from the sample size that I have come in contact with. Meanwhile, you're hellbent on trying to make people prove what percen
  15. Watch the documentary and then come back with your views. I'll semi take your point on being careful with words. Only if for the greater cause. I'm sorry for racially abusing all white people and I accept my own apology.
