A bit quirky, a little chaotic, sometimes fiery and controversial, but a geniune lover of everything satirical in sport. I also love a great serious news story that sparks a lively debate. I'm also not afraid to say what I feel. On Twitter @edgarslosh Its mayhem

Sad Siggins leaves the Crows nest

Young Tasmanian defender, Sam Siggins, to depart the Crows for personal reasons, citing the tragic death of former coach Phil Walsh as a factor. He confessed he has failed to come to terms with the death of the much loved Adelaide coach in early July and hasn’t played football for almost a month. He, like […]

Oliver is rated by recruiters as an outside player. Burton was deemed by the club to have a knee injury. He actually broke his knee. Therefore a knee injury. Thanks for reading

Adelaide fans aren’t happy with the appointment.

Crows name Pyke new AFL coach

The (far too early) 2016 AFL ladder

Betts wanted to get out of Carlton, can you blame him? Thompson wasn’t wanted by Melbourne. Jacobs was being overlooked at Carlton. Both Cheney and Lowden were told they weren’t required.

Hawks' duo Brian Lake and David Hale retire

Only 3 ruckmen invited to the draft combine. Mabior Chol, Andre Parrella, Mitchell King plus there is Kyle Galloway who at 206cm is raw but has a future

Hawks' duo Brian Lake and David Hale retire

So they’ll do what they always do, poach a promising player from another team instead of recruiting one and nurturing his talent. The Hawks seem to do this especially with rucks. Rehn, Everitt, Salmon, etc

Hawks' duo Brian Lake and David Hale retire

That equates to a greater spread of disappointment?

The AFL’s grand final 'problem'

Ah, I wish I was so optimistic about it. You refer to Carlton and Essendon as inherently rich. Perhaps 15 years ago. Yes they made a mess of it, but the new rich revolves around Hawks, Cats, Pies and Swans.
They are the ones that will become he big 4. It has already begun in the last decade and will only get stronger of the AFL don’t take action

The AFL’s grand final 'problem'

The Hawk juggernaut will continue as long as they can utilize free agency and poaching of other players deemed key to the rise of other clubs. Sydney have used the money ball experiment to great effect and Geelong now look set to try it.
What fans are tired of seeing are these same clubs in the last decade monopolizing the competition.
It’s only going to get worse as younger players look to go to clubs who are experiencing success and want to cash in on it. The seeds of a potential premier league disaster have already been sown.

The AFL’s grand final 'problem'

And as I have been saying for the past few months, the door is open for Jake Carlisle to walk straight in.

Hawks' duo Brian Lake and David Hale retire

Should this surprise us that the Poms have done it? They were probably pleading for help.

World Cup officials probe England over referee claim

Fans are turning off. They can’t see an end in sight with the failings constantly swept under the carpet

Reviewing AFL 2015: Hang your head in shame

So tired of seeing the same kind of article over and over and over again

Reviewing AFL 2015: Hang your head in shame

nothing wrong with saying it how I see it. too many PC people in the world making it miserable for the rest of us.

Hawthorn smash West Coast to win the 2015 AFL Grand Final

West Coast started gaining momentum in the third quarter. The match wasn’t over then. They had chances. Darren Jarman didn’t get the medal in 97 when he kicked 5 last quarter goals. McLeod got it for a 4 quarter effort

Player ratings from the AFL grand final

A hard pill to swallow. But they will come again. Once their injured defenders return they will be stronger

Bad day at the office for Eagles

Mitchell was 10/10. It was his best game ever. He deserved the Medal more than any other player.

Player ratings from the AFL grand final

My votes would have been
3 – Mitchell – completely shut down WC’s half forward line
2 – Frawley – Stopped Kennedy and rebounded beautifully
1 – Smith – devastating on the wing

Rioli had 1 good quarter as usual. Mitchell was dead set unlucky.

I don’t bag the Hawks. I just think the way they lure other teams talent away makes a mockery of the competition.

Player ratings from the AFL grand final

I’m not negative, I’m a realist.

Hawthorn smash West Coast to win the 2015 AFL Grand Final

Totally agree. The competition is so rigged now to keep teams on top and make it so hard for those who try and fail

Hawthorn smash West Coast to win the 2015 AFL Grand Final

Rioli didn’t deserve the medal. It has devalued what it means.

Player ratings from the AFL grand final

Like your way of thinking but common sense isn’t a pre-requisite for recruiters and officials

Nic Nat will dominate and walk away with the medal

Who will win the Norm Smith Medal?

Don’t want to get everyone excited just yet

Don't write off the Cats in 2016

He has waited 9 years to tell the story and ironically a former Hawk waits until Grand Final week to dish the dirt? Methinks there’s a touch of subterfuge behind this.

I’m growing tired of hearing about football exploits off the field instead of what happens on the field.
