Sadly where I work does not permit frivolous tatts

Footy Fix: Essendon have arrived... and it's time we all started getting absolutely terrified

I’m still taking it week by week but the thing that sticks out to me is the fact that the brand of footy they’re playing is a lot more sustainable. Like it didn’t rely upon some flukey trick to pull a win out of thin air

Look I get Brad’s position by the same token I understand why Sammy did what he did,

'Furthest thing from funny': Brad Scott gives Draper both barrels over Beveridge podcast dig

I mean they played three good matches in a row so that means either the bombers or the eagles will play very poorly

Six Points: Channel 7's commentary, the AFL's most underrated coach, and what on earth is wrong with a draw?

I am very happy with the bombers performances this year. It’s not just Brad Scott but the entire list is sick of mediocrity.

Well Don is in Freo so no

Footy Fix: The Cats are inevitable - and they're smarter, clutcher, quicker, and scarier than ever

Dw we are first to first. Geelong are below that.

I am at least moderately tongue in cheek when I declare the bombers flag favourites. As long as we have Guelfi running a defensive forward role on Holmes, and Durham and Caldwell are on song then we are good

Dw everyone the real flag favourites will beat them

King, and Higgins are the best but they also have phillipou and Owens. I don’t rate Caminiti, or Sharman (aside from his set shot).

Footy Fix: Ross Lyon is the AFL's most boring coach once again - and it's suffocating the Saints' season

I dunno about that Saints at least have some
Forwards. Freo are relying on Patrick Voss and Jye Amiss

I hear Ross will be making the surprising move to drag Zac Dawson out of retirement

I like draws and let’s be real it advantages both Collingwood and Essendon to take the draw here because it means their low percentage become irrelevant

AFL News: North OF Melbourne? McGuire's bold idea to rejuvenate Roos, Scott slams sub rule after Anzac Day drama

He is improving though it’s been slow and steady. The big KPI I want him to improve is disposal efficiency and probably contested marking

Footy Fix: The best Anzac Day classic since the first one confirms the Pies are back... and the Bombers are for real

Nah we played the reigning premiers missing our best defender, a first string forward midfielder and our best defensive forward

Footy Fix: The best Anzac Day classic since the first one confirms the Pies are back... and the Bombers are for real

Yeah I’ve always said the bombers have played to the quality of their opposition and that makes for a game style that relies on miracles

Footy Fix: The best Anzac Day classic since the first one confirms the Pies are back... and the Bombers are for real

Yeah we are at that precarious point where we need to start being really discerning with our recruitment and we haven’t been

Footy Fix: The best Anzac Day classic since the first one confirms the Pies are back... and the Bombers are for real

I don’t wanna jinx it but I sneakily reckon we are gonna drop a game against west coast or north

Footy Fix: The best Anzac Day classic since the first one confirms the Pies are back... and the Bombers are for real

Haha if we try to recruit any of them Brad Scott will be sacked and he will deserve it. I saw Patty Voss is gonna debut I might tune into Freo this week

As much as it pains to admit I don’t think we are there yet but I think with a couple shrewd acquisitions this trade period we will surprise some teams

Footy Fix: The best Anzac Day classic since the first one confirms the Pies are back... and the Bombers are for real

I think the fact of the matter is we are showing we can tough it out with the best of them.

I think a few things: it’s not just that it was a draw, like a low scoring torrid affair that’s become the specialty of Ross Lyon, but a high scoring free flowing affair that used the expanses of the G to the best effect. I think we can’t say the bombers are legitimate contenders yet because they’ve beaten the sides they weren’t supposed to beat and they’ve only started as favourites in one match which shows the disconnect externally and internally. I think if they smash west coast next week the lid is off and I will become insufferable.

I just gonna say full credit to the bloke who took the photo that leads this article

Footy Fix: Tigers try to drag Dees down to their level and beat them with experience - and it nearly works

West Coast are being sensible unlike every other club that has run first overall picks to an early career end. The next two weeks will be interesting for West Coast as they’re playing two sides that expected to be on the lower end of the middle six, and we will see how much they’ve learned from this year

AFL News: Eagle learns fate from Tribunal, Reid on track to be $1 million teenager, Cats star makes contract call

Because mason Redman was suspended Jesse Hogan needs to be suspended. The tribunal needs to focus on consistently upholding precedent more than anything else because right now they’ve been woeful and the afl as a whole is gonna pay the price
