    If I were a St Kilda fan, I don't think I would have survived the 2004-2010 period with zero premierships to show for it.
    Just imagine we lost in 2021 and exited this period with no premierships. It would be intolerable.

    I have a few friends who are Saints fans who have lost all interest in the club since 2011. So sad.

    The Bont is a shining example of a footballer and how the game should be played.

    Hard to envisage a trade scenario that would be worth their while.

    I always think that no individual is bigger than the club; but the Bont is definitely an exception to that rule.

    Him leaving the Dogs would be the equivalent of Max leaving the Dees.

    Media reports about possible smoke around the Bont. 

    As captain was part of their review - obviously thing's not working.... might be able to pry out if things don't improve.

    Go and get the Bont!

    They will sack Bevo before they let the Bont walk out. Take that to the bank.

    Surely the AFL is playing a dangerous game of cynically relying on peoples loyalty to their Clubs for continued support while they insult the same people with their farcical management, zeal for woke agendas and contentment of allowing an uneven/unfair competition.

     

    This is incredibly true, and I think the AFL is relying heavily on the older generation of supporters. But for younger fans, I think the lack of transparency and clear corruption is going to wear thin.

    We are also in an era where media saturation is at an all time high, and we all have an ability to voice our opinion on every decision made by the AFL. That means the AFL can't simply sweep things under the carpet and hope the fans will forget.

    A lot of younger people will be turned off the game if they don't see any integrity at the top level, especially if they support a club that is not consistently rewarded with "the rule don't apply here" magic.

    It is beyond disgraceful that we could not even bring in an expert witness last week to defend Kosi, but Cameron can bring in two character witnesses.

    I’d swap out Salem and pick for Bailey in a heartbeat-  his best is A grade

    I will say this again; culture.

    You cannot preach about having a good culture, and then trade out a contracted Salem for Bailey Smith. Ludicrous suggestion.

    It’s his 21st birthday today! 🥳🍻🍰💥🥳

    Instead of receiving a gift, he’s given us a gift. Atta boy, Rooey! 

    He did get a nice gift, the honour of playing for Melbourne for 4 more years and probably a lot of money for a 21 year old 😂

    Yes that's correct.

    Make sure you download a decent VPN before you arrive.

    Even doing all that, the feed might be so bad / slow that it might not work.

    You in a major city such as Beijing or Shanghai when the match is on?

    Sadly no. I’ll be flying from Yiwu to Guangzhong.
    I’m pretty much screwed 😂

    Other than countries like China / Russia etc i doubt you would need one Jaded.

     

    Well just my luck I'm going to China

    I have watched AFL games from there before by paying for a pass on the AFL overseas site, but never tried watching replays on the AFL site itself.

    I am going to have my roaming turned on with Optus so that's not really an issue, more whether the site will load as normally most Australian sites do not work without a VPN

    The afl app has match replays available for every game, usually uploaded a day later

    Doesn't the AFL put full match replays up on their site about 12 hours after the match?

    Sorry already covered by MrFreeze!

    Thanks, would those be available to view from overseas, or would I need a VPN?

     

  10. A question for anyone who regularly watches matches from overseas; I am going to be away for this game sadly, and unlikely to be able to watch it live as I'll be on a flight during the game itself.

    I therefore don't want to pay for a live pass to watch from overseas, but wondering if there is somewhere I can watch the replay for free later? 

     

  11. Brisbane certainly has the wood over us, have had for a while now.

    The problem is that they have such an elite forwardline, that even our elite defense can't hold them to under 80 points, which means we have to be better than them in attack. Unfortunately that has not happened often, as they frequently manage to break even or beat us in the centre, leaving our forwardline with not enough quality entries to put a big enough score on the board. 

    I feel like the same applies to Carlton in the last couple of years. Lucky for us May always competes exceptionally well against Curnow.

    Pit bulls aren't. Ugly inbred looking things. Trained to be aggressive by clueless owners that defend them online. Sounds familiar.

    There are no bad dogs, only bad owners

    And there are plenty of trash humans who are just that, trash. Just look at the news from today as further proof.
