Kangaroos, Bulldogs deserve a Good Friday blockbuster

Kangaroos, Bulldogs deserve a Good Friday blockbuster

2 days ago

I have always been a traditionalist when it comes to Australian Rules football – I hope there is never a night grand final, and I also hope that the AFL never schedule a game on Good Friday. Both, however, appear to be inevitable. Outgoing CEO Andrew Demetriou has long been an opponent of Good Friday […]

The Blues need to learn from the Cats and the Hawks

After another poor display against Melbourne on the weekend, Carlton is under the spotlight from the ravenous media that cover the AFL. It’s been their worst start in 25 seasons.

North Melbourne, Western Bulldogs are the biggest disappointments

25 Mar 2014

Round 1 lasted forever, and although the Hirds and the Essendon saga threatened to derail the second half of it, there was some excellent footy played. The Bombers were one of the big winners, again putting a tumultuous 24 hours behind them to dominate a disappointing North Melbourne, who were flattered by the 39-point losing […]

James and company must be seen and not Hird

James and company must be seen and not Hird

21 Mar 2014

It’s a case of deja vu this weekend for the Essendon Football Club. They are getting ready for another game of footy, this time at the start of a new season and yet the supplements and poor governance issue is still hanging around. The club have been determined since James Hird received his suspension and […]
