The blessing will be midfield time to Blakely, Stephen Hill and Cerra. You can never put a positive spin, however, on a week with no Fyfe.

The boys will step up, though.

There is.

Who's the best candidate to replace Alan Richardson?

If they want a middle season spike in interest, eliminate those 3 bye weeks that quell interest.

If players want a rest, “manage” them.

Mid-season AFL trades: Good call or recipe for disaster?

I’d like Michael Voss to get one of the 3 available jobs.

Ah! So everybody in the industry is no good and it’s only you that knows it?

Why it's time for both Shaw and Teague to get the full-time gig

It’s the only way to follow footy…and enjoy it.

I have quite a chuckle whenever folk on here try to convince me that I shouldn’t enjoy my team week by week or that achievement by any team each week ought to be diluted by future projections or past history.

Spot on, Adrian. Good onya, Brissy.

Lions should be living in the moment

Kane Cornes…pffft!

I lovethe comment David Mundy (one of the AFL’s all time nice guys)made about Cornes today on afl.com:

“Kane’s obviously making a lot of headlines at the moment and he loved chatting when he was playing and that certainly hasn’t changed,” Mundy said.

“I’ll listen to people and comments I really value, and I guess unfortunately for Kane if that’s of his nature, he’s not one of them.”

St Kilda parts ways with Alan Richardson

He doesn’t carry a personal grudge.

What I love most is that the richness in this game was provided by the bowling and fielding from both sides to the degree that batsmen has to scramble and scrap to survive and score. A true contest and the best kind of cricket.

Yet another reason why boundaries are a poor criterion. Wickets had to be the starting point.

New Zealand were robbed in the World Cup final

Why would that be, do you think? Track record?

New Zealand were robbed in the World Cup final

For at least 5 decades (since my junior days), players have had that ‘gentleman’s’ agreement…not just 2 decades. Doubtless it extends beyong that.

New Zealand were robbed in the World Cup final

Well.. Montagna, Dal Santo, Lenny Hayes, Reiwoldt have all said it. Hamling, Fyfe, Neale, Mundy, McPharlin, Sandi…all the new kids (and I mean ALL of them) have signed on for extra years…

Maybe they actually know and you don’t.

Six talking points from AFL Round 17

It’s interesting that those quoting the Freo win/loss record in Tassie (also lumping Hobart and Launceston together as one ground) seem unaware that 13 of today’s 22 have never played in Tassie. Does that mean they are free of the losing habit or inexperienced there…thus condemned to loss?

Historical stats applied to players or teams not part of that history are nothing more than page fillers.

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 17

Is there another category besides “all” or “sundry”? I’m in that other category.

When you have a good coach, keep him. That’s the most “obvious” course of action.

John Longmire signs new contract to remain at Swans

No.

Handscomb?

Thoroughly outclassed, but Aussies can take heart in ODI revival

Cameron Green will be up and about in 4 years, too.

Whoops.. thinking of Stoinis. Nevertgeless, I’ll report you for gainsaying.

Great wite-ups, “experts”, on the Freoo/Hawks game.

He hardly got the boat wet. He got out second ball. No judging form there.

Not sure 2 balls = ” all at sea”.

Ashton Agar would have been the spinner. He will be now.

Fyfe has been a magnificent leader.

That’s why the players have voted him in. He has had a wonderful season as a player too. Nothing lost there.

A real driver of club culture too. Listen to the large group of young players in the surfing group that he is part of.

It’s your ageist comments that are incongruous. It changes depending on whether you like a player or not.

The Lions aren't just a finals contender, they're a premiership contender

It’s a long argument. Can you summarize it?

Dropping Glenn Maxwell against England would be a huge mistake

Why?
