So what, you get one over the enemy, game on I say

Compromise and pandemic define the 2020 AFL Draft

I think they’d be happy with either JUH McDonald, it’s a win-win for the Crows

Surely Adelaide bids on JUH, the bullies match and the Crows then take McDonald, they need a key forward badly.

No one’s brave enough to run a competing ticket against Eddie, imagine the vitriol they’d have to endure

Clubs who don't learn from history are destined to repeat it

No mention by anyone about the enormous loss over the off season?
Kade Simpson was a gun, and now he’s not there, I’d have him over Saad any day coming of half back.

Is the new Carlton line-up really all that improved?

Ha ha yes, we have different philosophies for sure mate

AFL rule changes to combat defensive play

Seems to be a good move, better than a younger coach for a team in this position

North Melbourne settle on new head coach

Richmond know they can win, they have that confidence, they have a team built for this modern type of game, they have a good coach, so I think they’d be fine whatever happens, you’ve still got big bookends, and mature bodies.

Imagine what dusty could do with a little more time and space?

AFL rule changes to combat defensive play

There’s nice passages of footy in most games and there were some great games last year, I just think I’m the whole the average game is a pretty ugly affair at the moment, that’s why more drastic rule changes are needed.

Throwing the ball up quicker would help, as would removing the ridiculous ruck nomination rules, but I’m not sure that would help enough.

Go further, 2 men inside the arc’s at all times, that would be easier to officiate as well, 40 rotations would work too.

It’s not Richmond’s fault, they’ve adapted better than the rest and are the best.

I just hate the game style they’re being forced to play, they’d win whatever the style.

AFL rule changes to combat defensive play

I just don’t like the fact that getting the ball forward at any cost usurps the accurate free flowing footy that I love.

Richmond do attack more, but it’s messy, due to congestion, stop the congestion, Richmond still wins, but it a better game to watch

Teal is a beautiful and regal colour of kings

AFL rule changes to combat defensive play

I hate Richmond’s game style, it’s ugly and has been forced upon us by super congestion.

Don’t get me wrong, they’re worthy premiers but give me a super attacking Geelong or accurate kicking Hawthorn any day.

AFL rule changes to combat defensive play

We all whinge and moan about the AFL tinkering, but I think that this year’s style of footy was the worst I’ve seen in my time.

Uber defensive get plans, super high presses and more numbers around the ball then ever, it was turgid to watch at times.

I for one think they haven’t gone far enough with the rule changes, I would have people in the arc’s permanently and the rotations down to 40, it looks to me like they’re actually trying to minimise the changes they’re making but as mentioned it’s the coaches that dictate the way the game is played, and they’re prerogative is to win, that will never change, therefore the AFL, needs to make changes for them, this is a bit of a fence sitting move, made to not upset the traditionalists but trying to address what’s clearly an issue, they should have bitten the bullet and went harder.

AFL rule changes to combat defensive play

Would love to……but work lol

Stoked we got Alir, hopefully they bulk him up a bit to play on the big key forwards

The fallacies behind Collingwood's trade reasoning

9 odd Collingwood articles on n here, god help me lol.

Should have gone after Ben Brown

My Melbourne mate texts me about O McDonald every Melbourne game, nuff said lol

Why Ben Brown is the wrong trade for Melbourne

What’s to say they won’t change their game plan now they have a superstar full forward?

Why Ben Brown is the wrong trade for Melbourne

He wasn’t even in their b&f top ten, how then is he one of their best players?

Slice it any way you like, that’s stupid money for a player like Williams.

What you club needs from the AFL trade period: Part 2

You have to delist 3 players, I know that much, but not sure if trading a player counts towards that number

It's black and white for Collingwood: Add Brown

Yeah I can’t see Freo giving up Hogan, sure he’s had a couple of dramas but he started to play good footy at the back end of the year.

Port will take him off your hands though if you don’t want him Don 😛

It's black and white for Collingwood: Add Brown

He went at pick 7 in the draft, has had a good year, and you think he’s not worth that now while he’s in his prime?
I’d be unhappy with anything less than that.
I have a Melbourne mate that says McDonald has refused to play back, not sure I’d want him as a forward, would definitely take him down back though

What you club needs from the AFL trade period: Part 2

Port are looking at Alir Alir, which would be awesome, we need a big key defender.

Fantasia will come for a mid second rounder and that’s it for us, we don’t need Peter Wright, Todd Marshall is already better than him and will come on next year, Ladhams can also play forward.

We may lose Sam Hayes unfortunately.
