Sporting NUT! Not scared to take his "bite" on the sporting world!

Its a similar role to what they’ve played Zorko in at different stages.

Don’t understand it myself. But hey who am I question the Coach?

AFL Thursday Thought Bubble: Petracca good, Oliver great, but Jack Viney the real hero as the Dees get back on track

About the only positive about last night is the date….

Thankfully it’s on June…. So there’s still 3 months to try and sort it out and give themselves some chance.

Played in the back pocket for some reason for a reasonable chunk of the game

It’s the coaches game problem that is half the issue.

Entries into the forward 50 are generally just a bomb it in for the big forward line.
It doesn’t work when it matters.

Our ability to spread from the contest and running game is very much lacking. What I would do for an Ed Langdon at the Lions.

It is when your own one wood is contested game.

While the Dees were good- the Lions didn’t fire a shot at any stage.

In saying they’ve won a couple of games when Buddy hasn’t been there…..

He’s also single handed won them a couple himself….

He has to play on, but you like to think that he’s a significant reduction salary wise and roll wise
going forward. I reckon he’s still got 2 good years on him. He’s certainly not a selfish player…

Just his team mates need to be a bit smarter with the use of the ball towards him

Swans must move on from Buddy-centric forward line

Same story with the Lions-

Get early advantage in the game and don’t take opportunities….

Then get ripped apart and just can’t stop the bleeding what’s so ever….

Looked awfully slow and just plain out of their depth last night. Chris Fagan needs to start to grow as a coach, as it’s the same mistakes keep happening in big games in Melbourne. Just not good enough.

The Scottish handbag tried his guts out- even Jack Payne tried hard, Big O battle with Jackson was great to watch. The rest were appalling bad.

Very well written and great to see a rather sensible response.

Credit it you Chris.

Jordan De Goey’s punishment cannot be blamed on the media, nor can Collingwood be accused of being too soft

Dees (good teams don’t generally lose 4 games in a row- secretly I’m trying to mock Dees- Lions should win)
Dogs (will be too good)
Bombers (about due to put two performances in a row together)
Freo (in a really good space- expect Fyfe to be better again)
Cats (I really have no confidence with this one)
Swans (seems to be what they do, good performance, ordinary performance, good performance )
Crows ( this will be an epic ugly scrap)
Pies (the week they’ve had does worry me slightly- who am I kidding couldn’t care less if they lose a game they should win)
Port (haven’t quite got to the stage yet that I’m confident to tip the Suns away)

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 15

He’s brought a hell of lot more intelligent material to the conversation then
your Jordan De Goey pom pom shaking fan boy responses.

Media bullying of Jordan De Goey has been a disgusting witch-hunt

No Zach Bailey hurts the Lions

AFL NEWS: Dockers coy on Jackson deal, Zorko hamstrung, Nic Nat a chance to return

Lettuce leafs are pretty expensive at the moment, so maybe Collingwood did something after all…

Media bullying of Jordan De Goey has been a disgusting witch-hunt

Come on Cam- this is no Ollie Wines, no Bont, No Joel Selwood, no Matt Rowell.

This is a bloke who’s continually time after time after time gets himself in trouble,
doing stuff that in the highly sensitive age we live in now a days and the AFL’s own push
for respect towards women….. continues to live outside community expectations.

You and few other missed placed commentators are calling Media Bullying? I don’t think so.

Interesting no response to my hypothetical.

Media bullying of Jordan De Goey has been a disgusting witch-hunt

If legit Lions just have to win.

No Gawn bigger impact on Melbourne then No Zorko for the Lions.

100% on the money comment about the mids. But I think the Lions have a pretty heavy advantage forward of 50! I’ll be bitterly disappointed if Brisbane don’t get it done this weekend.

AFL NEWS: Dockers coy on Jackson deal, Zorko hamstrung, Nic Nat a chance to return

Lions have never had a better opportunity to really take hold of their season then they do this weekend.

No Gawn, No Majak back up…. Surely Lions load up with a Oscar / Fort double combo for Jackson.

“Media bullying”

You’re having a laugh Cam. What a load codswallop.

I’d ask you, what reckon your wife would feel if some boofhead tried to remove her top in a nightclub….

If you have a young 20 something daughter…. How do you reckon she feels about having some clown try and remove her top?

‘….there was nothing in those videos that isn’t happening among 20-somethings and every in every city and town every weekend.’
That is exactly the problem with Australian cultural. In this day and age it’s just not appropriate. Plain and simple.

The fact De Goey has been caught up in this stuff multiple times- how dumb do you have to be?
You’ve missed the mark by long way with this article.

Media bullying of Jordan De Goey has been a disgusting witch-hunt

Clearly everyone is over the Bye weekends….

All the talk of pillock from Collingwood is rather tiresome.

You do have ask about those in charge of Collingwood allowing said pillock to head over to a place like Bali mid season- it was always a recipe for disaster.

Six Points: Best season in decades takes another twist, and Pies must do something - anything - about De Goey

That’s a hell no for me

Six Points: Best season in decades takes another twist, and Pies must do something - anything - about De Goey

Best thing of this season is I don’t think anyone can truly claim they know who’s going to land top 4

Brisbane & Fremantle for me have a leg up, but their draws get pretty tough…..
Melbourne you can never count out, but things look to be adding up against them….

Cats- ultimately you just can’t trust back end of the season with recent history and list profile….
Blues- have plenty of injuries at the moment- how much damage is done before reinforcements arrive?
Tigers- Found wanting a couple of times early in the season, but seem to be finding form and fitness.
Swans- very inconsistent
Saints- a little gettable and tough draw. Won’t be putting hard earned down for them
Pies- young group- will they run out of gas?
Dogs- have they given everyone too much of a start?
Suns- got a nice draw back end-

How good a season have we got going! It’s fantastic to see

Swans- are very inconsistent with form….
Pies

Which AFL teams will finish top four in 2022 to earn a double finals chance?

Eagles were always going to start improving once they got the troops on the park.
They are going to worry some teams back end of the season

AFL Saturday Study: Up off the canvas, the Eagles' rebuild starts now

The question for Carlton is how much damage is done while the troops are out.
Really enjoying the way the Giants are currently playing. Wonder whether McVeigh is any hope of getting the gig on permanent basis?
I have concerns with the Saints hanging onto a position in the 8- their draw is pretty tough back end.

Fantastic achievement Bruce!

Still my favourite commentator of all time.

AFL NEWS: Commentary legend steals the show at the Logies, clubs call for Friday night footy facelift

Coming from one of the most one eyed “commentators” on this site.

As soon as someone dare calls out a Richmond player you jump on your high horse.

If Patrick Cripps had done exactly the same thing Prestia did- I’d be quite happy to call him out too. In fact I hate when Dayne Zorko does exactly the same stuff at Brisbane. it’s stupid and pretty weak.

Not sure if it can be explained any more simply for you, if the blatant two handed push doesn’t happen- the push and shove doesn’t happen. Pretty simple.

AFL Thursday Thought Bubble: Tigers reign in the rain as mud and grime(s) undoes the Blues by a fingertip

Accidental? You having a laugh it was a blatant two handed push.

Lynch did play well- 100%- what’s that got to do with being a numbskull and escalating what had pretty much had fizzled out between Cripps and Prestia?

AFL Thursday Thought Bubble: Tigers reign in the rain as mud and grime(s) undoes the Blues by a fingertip

Good on Cripps for standing up for himself. It was weak play by Prestia,
Pretty much had fizzed out until sniper Grimes and dopey Lynch tried
to flex their “big men” status.
