But getting torn apart by the american pie when they were such overwhelming favourites would be traumatic

Four burning questions for Richmond ahead of the AFL restart

Additionally the dimensions of Kardinia park are odd. It’s a very long skinny ground so sides that rely a lot on moving the ball ftom side to side and then forward struggle. Like the old Subiaco ground.

How Geelong could quickly become the laughing stock of the AFL

Haha essendon have a tendency to play to the quality of their opposition which allows them to blind side arrogant teams

No mosquito is fine we just have a lot of depth at the small forward position

Four burning questions for Port Adelaide ahead of the AFL restart

It kept us out of a recession, and lessened the pain on the most vulnerable among us. Compare that to how the Americans did it and you’ll see we did considerably better than them

Aren’t we all? When Collingwood finishes below us I mean.

How far can Port Adelaide go in 2020?

I re watched the last two minutes of the hawthorn v port prelim in 2014. Absolutely atrocious umpiring from Matt Stevic, the fact that he still has a job is outrageous. You make a mistake like that you deserve a firing.

Yeah thanks for the correction,

yeah but those fancy kitchens that get made are the donors of the liberal party.

haha we’ll throw in the good peptides. The whole logic of the move was that Bassett is a coach at Port now and he was a coach for Fantasia at Essendon.

Because that fundamentally misunderstands the issue. Yes there are problems with the dodgy criminal justice system, but it in no way is comparable to black people being murdered largely with impunity. Additionally, how many black people are in jail because they couldn’t afford cash bail? Or they were rail roaded by dumb three strikes laws? Or they had sub par representation?

Actually handing out tax payer funding is largely what kept us out of the 2008 recession. However, you have to make it an automatic stabiliser that kicks in when a recession happens like it did today

I also think we need drastic changes to our prison system and system of punishment. Going to prison ruins your life, they look far too much like the panopticon when we need to be promoting agency in a controlled environment. Think halden prison in Denmark if you’d like an example. Right now criminal justice strips offenders of their humanity and does not give it back to them in a meaningfulwag

I think Breust particularly stings the swans given he played in their reserves side and has been an absolute gun for the hawks

Buddy Franklin's time at the Swans has been a failure

I actually hated Sydney as a kid so I guess you could say I do haha.

I also think them being without hunter for a few weeks is gonna hurt

No our founding fathers combined the YS system with the british system of parliamentary sovereignty.

Culturally speaking there are vast differences between the United States states, and Australian states. Like people in Alabama will be highly offended to be compared to people in New York and vice versa, additionally they’re still trying to cop with the flawed reconstruction after the civil war we’ve never had that, the closest we had were the kiwis and Fijians leaving before federation

Everything is political mate, look at kap and how he was blacklisted by the nrl

Thanks Peter. Much appreciated.

Haha it’s not against the player himself it’s against the organisation mate.

Brad ottens came from Richmond right?

Is it statistically significant? And compare that to the overall growth in the fan base. Are you attributing all that to buddy? And the answer is no you can’t attribute that all to buddy, what you can however, is on field results.

Hmmm a good article I think they fell into the “essendon trap” where they aggressively trade the previous year and just expect it all to come together. Don’t get me wrong they traded well last year, but I think they have a ways to go yet before they’ll fully challenge for a premiership.

I also think the elder statesmen of the club gave the younger players the self belief necessary to win and win well.
