Dont forget the old adage that stands the test of time – “bowlers win matches, batsmen save them”. The team with the best performing bowling lineup will win the World Cup – simple as that !

Hosts under pressure to deliver in window of dominance

It was fixed alright, Mike – hence their diabolical form since ! Fresh in my mind was the unbelievable umpiring versus GWS in that series.
Same thing happened the next season for Richmond (Cotchin let off for the GF and Rioli’s very ordinary “goal of the year” as proof)

Curses and the dying Swan

Langer !

Selectors can’t rid themselves of the Marsh habit

I’m gonna back em – anyone know what price they are ?

My Afghanistan World Cup squad

Worse still Conny, if de Boer was a non Victorian and hit the protected species, he would have got 2 !

Star Cat out of Danger, Setterfield cops two-match ban

Unfortunately Timbo, we need a lot more than that ! I’d take Bolton for Pyke instead.

Brendon Bolton, it's time to pack your bags

Must agree Alfy – if non Victorian players have not worked out that their actions will be judged differently to their Victorian counterparts (refer Dangerfield’s “acquittal” ), they have been down a well. Burton made a big mistake by giving the Victorians the ammunition!

Port Adelaide: The heartbreak kids

Good article Jay and your reflection of the impact of the ’17 GF is spot on. There was no plan B,C, or D on that day, or any day since. If you are one dimensional these days, you are finished, irrespective of how effective that dimension is !

The confused, wayward Crows have no connection to their better past

Karma baby – I hope it goes on and on !

Brendon Bolton, it's time to pack your bags

Bit like your boys, Powsie – bring back the tarps – gone again !

An unpopular opinion: The tough calls Pyke won't make

Out of order Grints – in 98 they did get beaten in the first final but recovered to win the flag without a single home final. This will never be repeated ! Just because your coach is a mastermind, that doesnt mean you are unworthy. Having said that, I concur the Eagles are the strongest CLUB in the comp. by a mile, supported by the fact they travel from one side of this vast continent to the other every second week !

An unpopular opinion: The tough calls Pyke won't make

Same with basketball – the last 5 mins is plenty ????

Some sporting facts for you to unquestioningly accept

You are being silly, Paula !

Some sporting facts for you to unquestioningly accept

As a Crow, I hope you’re right Rowd.
The Dees can have Pyke – he cannot coach pigs to be muddy !

Demons coach feels for hurting fans

Steady Sam, you’ve played no one as yet. There is undeniable excitement in youth but it can be a very dicey ride ! Let’s review your thoughts in a few weeks when they’ve played someone.

Port's potential is limitless

They got thrashed Pete – 3 is more than enough mentions !

Something to Crow about: Adelaide win second AFLW premiership

Absolutely – what a disgrace and he will be laughing all the way to the bank. Bloody Victorians !

Football, the media and mental health

We wont change their thinking Larry. Not much interest in teams outside their cold little state. Imagine telling Europeans that we dont play each other at home and away each season and the GF is played in the same town, on the same oval, every year ? Premierships earned by non Victorian teams should be celebrated by the rest of Australia, always.

Destiny makers: How the Eagles re-wrote their story and seized the premiership

Great wrting Jay but a fairly obvious observation Norton. We are playing in an expanded VFL comp and the biased programming, commentary and umpiring will always be a part of a non Victorian’s life (I’m a Croweater).
Wonderful win Eagles – celebrated by all outside of Victoria !

Destiny makers: How the Eagles re-wrote their story and seized the premiership

Wonderful article, Fan – hoping for many more. As a member of the Black Dog club I have admiration for the players that have “come out” and become flag bearers for the rest of us. Please believe me sceptics, no one would make this up and put themselves through the scrutiny and judgement that accompanies an admission of a mental health affliction.
Footy is great – but a miniscule part of our lives when compared to any health issue.

Football, the media and mental health

Sorry Mick but Ghost is on the money – Horse cant coach and the most obvious evidence of that is his reluctance to play one of the most naturally gifted footballers ever, at somewhere other than the graveyard that is full forward ! It is too late now as his athleticism had deserted him but the club paid outlandish money for premierships not facebook likes ! As a point of interest, look up Franklin’s finals record with the Swans – very, very ordinary ! As noted, without the salary cap concessions, they would be below Carlton (and may soon be !)

Is Sydney's Horse just a one-trick pony?

Exactly Gee – too wasteful with a hard, shiny ball !

The XI Australia should select for the first Ashes Test

You’ll see it in England Viv – line and length with a bit of movement off the deck) with the Duke. I’d be more worried about Starc, if I were you !

The XI Australia should select for the first Ashes Test

Bottom 3, Bluebagger, and rightfully so ! (bring back Josh Kennedy and Eddie Betts lol )

It’s time to let go of the 'honourable loss'

Spot on Rob – the boy did nothing for the club but plenty for himself ! He’s getting his just desserts now and if he plays on for much longer people will soon forget how great a player he once was !
