Passionate Essendon Supporter, and all around total flog.

I think Ugle Hagan’s agility means you can easily play him in a forward line with three tall forwards. He plays like Jeremy Cameron. I think Naughton is the answer to the bulldogs key defensive woes he’s athletic and he knows how to leap at the ball

Dogs' defence up to AFL flag task: Wood

I think next year is the most important for the suns. If it goes badly then they very well could end up losing lukosius, rankine, king, Rowell and Anderson. I think it’s unlikely all five leave but I think it’s very likely one or two leave

The northern academies are allowed to match bids on players within the first two rounds or are the Suns allowed to pre list players next year? The other issue they’re going to run into is list spots and cap space. I think there are players like Hugh Greenwood and Lachie Weller that are on the edge of the best twenty two for the Suns that may be forced out next year.

I think the retirement of Wood is a net positive for the bulldogs. As he said in the comments above he’s uncertain as to whether his body can stand up to the rigours of modern AFL footy but I believe the status as former captain may have encouraged Beveridge to name him when he wasn’t a best 22 player, by retiring he allows other players like Hayden Crozier and Taylor Duryea to put their best foot forward. The bulldogs also have developing talent like Buku Khamis coming through to assist

Yeah but the Bombers have got their own set of twins next year with the Davey twins coming through. It’s expected that they’ll both go in the national draft.

It’s no joke that that was the best wooden spoon side in the past few decades

Dog done: Premiership captain announces AFL retirement

Nah he hasn’t been bad by any means at the suns he just hasn’t had the sport

Easton wood did well to take the bulldogs from the doldrums to premiership glory.

Yep I think the pass mark next year is a top six finish and a home elimination final at least. I do wonder about where the goals are going to come from now that Chooka has retired. I think Baldwin could prove to be one of our smartest pick ups ever and don’t think we lack a key target going forward. I think we definitely need to aim to get some poise around the ball

An unexpected journey: Essendon Bombers season review

Pete stop making me agree with a Richmond fan haha

Tigers 'appalled' by 'inflammatory allegations' at AFL club's medical staff

The thing that I think this piece misses is the fact that there are lots of clubs that will have deliberately looked the other way like Richmond. They’re just the club at the wrong place at the wrong time

People have died with the vaccine they haven’t died from the vaccine.

That statistic makes sense only if you think of Covid as only having two outcomes, death or full recovery. It doesn’t. It is extremely likely that you’ll get hospitalised with Covid and the big fear is that we will run out of beds and whatnot at which point we will need to begin rationing care at which point the mortality rate will spike. Also your maths is wrong, it has a mortality rate of about 2-3%, the 0.1% number comes from taking the total number of deaths over the total population which is not how you calculate mortality rate. It is an example of some right winger cooking the books to confirm their own biases.

Actually the best thing for you if you’ve already had Covid is to still get the vaccines as you can get Covid multiple times

Eh I live here I’m allowed to dunk on my own state haha

Yep exactly I think that come 2022 if you’re not fully vaccinated then your Medicare levy goes up by 1% every six months until you get the shot

Actually swine flu, and the H1N1 viruses are influenza viruses. Yes they’re comparable to Covid in that they’re both modern pandemic agents. However, H1N1 was dramatically worse than Covid simply because it turns your immune system against you, we just didn’t have agents of disinformation like Rupert Murdoch and Donald trump the last time H1N1 got bad (swine flu 2009-10).

Because we don’t have enough hospital beds. Simply put COVID is a recipe for disaster because it is very easy to overwhelm a hospital system that lacks the surge capacity like australia does

‘Ethically wrong’: AFL star not keen on mandatory jabs

The way to think about the vaccines developed for Covid is they’re not rolled out over less than a year, they’ve been in the works since the first SARS virus and MERS as well.

Yep exactly, elective surgery is an extremely broad term too. Like it’s not just boob jobs and whatnot but knee reconstructions and basically elective surgery is classified as anything that isn’t urgently needed surgery.

He’s also thirty six so when he hits the cliff he will hit in a big way

I think like a lot of sides the suns have too many half backs/intercepting defenders like they’ve got Powell who’s been a jet this year, Collins has been one of the shrewdest acquisitions by the suns ever and then there’s charlie Ballard and Conor budarick neither of whom has put a foot wrong for the suns. I think he was just surplus in the most extreme sense

I was listening the herald sun podcast and they ripped Tom McDonald a new one. They’re bang on in their criticism right there. There is no nuance just get the shot or quit

I don’t think anyone has ever called anything about Glasgow rich

‘Ethically wrong’: AFL star not keen on mandatory jabs

A multitude of reasons the fact that it’s a more densely populated state for one, people actually want to go there for another, and the infrastructure is better than in New South Wales
