  1. I heard he won't come to us, so we've decided to recruit an injured nutritionist who we hope can be re-trained as an assistant boot studder. We'll have to pay overs, but it'll totally be worth it.
  2. I dunno, he didn't seem to have an issue with the gays in 2014: source: https://www.bandt.com.au/media/big-boys-balls-time-israel-folau-starred-cover-gay-mag
  3. So we have one spot open? Best case scenario, we plug one of our many many holes. Guess it's better than nothing but I'm not looking for this to change our fortunes.
  4. Not sure how they could possibly change the interpretation of something as simple as 6-6-6. I'm sure if enough advertising dollars are at stake they'll give it a bash though, you'r probably right. Maybe they'll increase the amount of warnings for violating the rule from 1 to unlimited. That way the rule stands, but teams can just ignore it. The fact that there's a warning system at all and not just a free kick is idiotic anyway, might as well extend the idiocy.
  5. Since scoring is down, channel 7 won't be happy. I can only assume that there'll be more rule changes to "fix" this around half way through the season.
  6. This isn't really a free speech issue though is it? I mean, "free speech" is about the government making laws (or I guess the courts creating laws by rulings and precedent) that prevent people from saying certain things. The government isn't involved here. He's not being thrown in gaol or slapped with retraining orders. He can say whatever the hell he wants as long as it doesn't break the law, which I can't see that he's done. If he's [censored] off his employer on the other hand, that's a workplace/employment/contractual/code of conduct issue. If his sponsors don't like it, the
  7. Wait, Game of Thrones is back on? I had no idea. If only Foxtel had done some sort of cross-promotion with the footy to remind me.
  8. I can't wait to read all the 'journalists' speculating on what symbol means what. I bet the footy shows will have dedicated 'code-breakers' who'll outline in cringeworthy fashion exactly why they think X symbol means Y tactic. Then when some are worked out, the clubs will cry foul that they can no longer communicate to their players without the opposition knowing their moves, and request more symbols to be made available. Then we can all read about 'symbol-gate', and Gill will have to make a 'captains call' on 100 new symbols to make the codes harder to break.
  9. My bother is a north fan. He's been giving me crap about Tyson for years. This trade is delicious.
  10. Is this a late April fool's joke?
  11. Given the way the ruck nomination rules have been exploited on occasion, it doesn't surprise me that these scenarios need to be thought about and planned for. It's better than just blindly flinging rules in every year and hoping they achieve the desired outcome. Of course they could just LEAVE IT ALONE, but that is perhaps the hardest thing for administration to achieve. Personally I don't think congestion was that much of an issue this year, and even when it did bog down games occasionally I don't think it was heavy enough to warrant a rule change to 'fix' it.
  12. Looks like there's finally a product coming to market to fill the gap a lot of us have been complaining about: https://kayosports.com.au/ $25 per month, stream AFL, NRL, Cricket and a whole lot of other sports live and on demand. Chomecast compatible. Apparently it's owned by Foxtel. I'm amazed that they've brought this out. Even just watching every Dees game it'd work out at a $6.25 per game. Chromecast to a big screen and that's some good value. I'm seriously considering this, despite my distaste for the parent company. Subscribe during footy season, cancel, r
  13. I think you left out the pointy end mate.
  14. You mean I too can receive spam from a football club? And all I have to do is pay some money to the EFC? Where do I sign?! Lol. "Benefits".
