    Covid has brought out the worst in society, shown us all how much we can be selfish. 

    Yes it has, but I'd like to balance with this.

    Margaret Thatcher once said there is no such thing as society.

    I'd suggest that the pandemic has shown in fact there is such a thing. Notwithstanding the few, the vast majority of us have been willing to make huge sacrifices on a personal level, all for the wellbeing of not just family and friends but for literally everyone. If that doesn't prove that society exists, then I don't know what does.

  2. If only we could force those choosing to remian unvaccinated to be put into a simulated reality where Covid-19 happened and no vaccine was developed.

    I reckon they'd go in thinking this will be great I can experience freedom again, but then come crashing down when the reality hits.

  3. How can fear of complications on such a low percentage overrule a statistically proven method of inoculation against a deadly virus? That literally makes it less likely for one to die, or helps prevent more vulnerable loved ones from dying. Beggars belief

  4. Didn't know where to post this, but I realised that we gave each of Brisbane, Geelong and Bulldogs their biggest loss of the year during finals. In the case of Geelong (83 points vs 44 points in H&A) and Bulldogs (74 points vs 28 points in H&A, which was also from us) by a long way.

    We really did dominate like a team hasn't since Geelong 2007, as evidenced by the table in OP

    Makes perfect sense, needs someone to put out all his spot fires. 

    First managed by his father, then his brother in law.

    What's next? His father in law's brother?

    Had a look at player stats in relation to their career best, with some interesting findings

    - Clarrie 21 uncontested possessions, 2 short of his highest

    - Tracc career high possession total, contested possessions, equal high inside 50s (as expected)

    - Sparrow career high goal assists, inside 50s

    - Brayshaw career high 1 percenters

    - Salem equal career high inside 50s

    - ANB equal 4th best game disposals and 2nd highest handball count

    - Jackson career high goal assists

    - Fritsch equal 2nd career high goals of course

    - BBB equal 3rd highest frees for (which is saying something given his NM days)

    I should add, Viney 2nd career high clearances with 12. Two short of career best 14

    I may have double-standards (at least I have some) in that I'd rip into Cats, Hawks, Pies & Bombers supporters. However would not want to ridicule/humiliate Bulldogs supporters.

    And for clarification - Roger the Demon Dog was a pre-game omen, not post-game ridicule.

    Worthy of a quick photoshop, this one

    But I think she got it wrong in the third declaring we were looking shakey and desperately needed a goal just for confidence. 

    Nah Daisy was spot on. Right at that moment we did need a goal to settle and reset. Literally a few minutes later she commented that we had our confidence back when Trac attempted a behind the head handball to keep the ball alive inside the boundary. She could sense it. We all could, but reckon she's just that little bit ahead of us all. Terrific commentator

  10. Simple strategy to win really

    Solid defence, limiting the Dogs to a low score. If we nullify their forward line all we need to do is kick a goal or two more every quarter, or have a burst of goals to put them away. Don't mind if it's a low scoring game

    I have more faith in our defence than they would in theirs

    But the solid defence must come from all parts of the ground, not just the backline
