  1. Streaming issues. Has been happening for hours. Set top boxes not affected apparently. Lots of cranky people out there.
  2. Foxtel are having issues so.........
  3. Was in the back for sure. Defender quickly turned around to see if he had been pinged. I'm sure Tex would have gotten the call. Not to mention Oliver getting dropped as he approached the marking contest in the last few seconds. Ball nowhere near him..
  4. How are umpires like panell and Nichols supposed to know who played well? They’re still struggling to get the rules right.
  5. The extended goal square just seems so ridiculous. If they want the ball cleared further on kick-outs, why don't they just get rid of the need to kick the ball to yourself to play on and just let them run out of the square. This will give them enough extra distance to kick it out further. If they move the man on the mark back a bit as well, it will get cleared further again. Has to be better than that stupid looking rectangle.
  6. We have 1761 points with our picks in the second round. So who are we going to trade these with to get our first round pick? GWS is usually up for a point increase to get their academy players but they only have pick 11 which is 1329 points. Will they need/do it?
  7. Watts for the two homesick GWS boys?
  8. LOL Clarry needs tatts to have a crack at a Brownlow. Having said that, based on post #10 from this thread, he's a winner anyway.
  9. Lot of dodgy calls keeping the Vics close in the EJ Whitten game tonight. Eddie McGuire must have used his numerous media roles to publicly state they were hard done by last time they played. Voila
  10. We usually get the '20% off guernseys' when we win. I think this weekend should result in '80% off guernseys'.
  11. Another positive. I'll take it. I'm pretty desperate for positives tonight. If we had a wish list for next year surely we would like two games against Richmond (top 6 team), 2 games against Gold Coast (bottom 6 team) and two games against West Coast, Bulldogs and St Kilda (middle 6 teams)
  12. Positives to be taken out of this. I'll be removing the sports package on Foxtel tomorrow so that'll save me some money. We just moved two places up the draft order I truely believe that the faster a team moves up the ladder (Port 2013/14, Bulldogs last year) the quicker they drop back down. Am happy to steadily improve as we seem to be. Sorry, that's all I got.
  13. I don't care what anybody says. There's an agenda here. Cinderella story. Essendon from wooden spoon to the finals. Free kick count, 28-15 No western Australian teams in the finals. Free kick count, currently 18-6 The hidden agenda is not so hidden any more. [censored] off AFL
  14. 35-18 Free kick count for teams working against us today.
  15. Were not blaming them for the players' effort. We're saying they are shyte.
  16. Pies player throws it out of a tackle, play on pies player caught with it, brought to ground, rolls it out to a team mate, play on pies player tackled as he kicks the ball, misses it, play on Demons player caught with the ball and it comes out in the tackle, free kick pies. Repeat
  17. I was thinking more from a strategic perspective. If Essendon win big, as they would be expected to, but those out of the eight don't, a loss to Collingwood would line us up with PA instead of Sydney. Unless Sydney beat Carlton by at least 20 points more than PA beat Gold Coast, then winning would be better. It would be great to have it all in front of us when we name our final team next week.
  18. Wish we had the twilight Sunday game next week. Never thought I'd say that.
  19. I just realised next week has 17th vs 18th and the loser gets the first pick. Hope the tanking judges are watching closely because if anybody is played out of their normal position it will cost their club a million bucks.
  20. Sydney in the bottom four of the finals just feels like a great white shore side of a sandbar. Would rather them in the top four.
  21. Really glad Pannell is fudging over Adelaide and not us this weekend.
