You do understand that we are in the AFL era. The VFL clubs are in the VFL, which is where all their accolades reside. And their quarter strength cups.

Hawthorn and Richmond,both MCG tenants, not that their fans would say that helps, have six of the last ten. I hear Covid hub calling also.
The lopsidedness has multiple factors, but if the AFL could get each of the Victorian sides to travel interstate eight times a year, that would be a good start. And playing in Tasmania doesn’t count.

Double chance up for grabs as Swans and Pies clash in another pre-finals blockbuster

Ah Chee had no vertical space in which to leap. Cripps was in it.

'Just not right': Michael Voss' defence of Patrick Cripps for controversial bump slammed

He did jump high to take away the space that Ah Chee had. Error.

Microseconds?
In case you’re not scientific, that’s millionths of a second. Atomic decay.
Even milliseconds are thousandths of a second. Chlorophyll metabolism.
He had two or three seconds to decide.
No attempt to mark, merely to bump.
He bumped high, made an error,two weeks.

Judd is older…

Six Points: Eddie Betts' powerful point gets lost in camp fiasco, and Cripps must get two weeks

This Walls chap. Is he the deep thinker that predicted the Eagles’ wooden spoon in 2018?

AFL Friday Footy Fix: Langdon wasn't wrong... but the Pies' 'one trick' is just that good

Very scary. One of you will be right. I’m not sure the rest of us can cope

Only reason to tip Lions.
Close,though

20+ rounds, 9 games~, a few more than 126..

They were both very complimentary of each other today.

AFL News: Langdon calls Pies a 'one trick pony', Saints' hunt for De Goey hits a snag, Grundy setback

Must have been some other moan.
Unless Hardwick was unhappy with the hardness of Robinson’s hip?
It was Martin who led into the collision after all.

AFL News: Kennedy, Motlop retiring, Ginnivan issue 'bizarre', Demons want Jackson deal sealed, Pickett avoids ban

I am referring to goalkickers. Pavlich also has 700. There are no Victorians on that mark with that many kms on the clock.
Surely that was clear?

BRETT GEEVES: Crows' disturbing truth, GWS in all sorts, and an apology to Joel Selwood - every team's state of play

Josh Kennedy must have 700 000 kms on the odometer. 1000 km/goal. Pavlich the only equivalent. No Victorians anywhere near.

Thin-skinned or what? The Eagles best forward out for the game and it didn’t help the Tigers?

Actually, Richmond did complain…

Better than Riewoldt, who begs for frees and sulks when he doesn’t get them.
Better than Hawkins, who pushes defenders in the back and who got away with jumper punches until the rule was changed.
Better than Franklin who gets marks when he drops the ball and avoids sanction for slinging.
Kennedy was being illegally blocked for leads so often that Darling worked that to his advantage.
What other pair of forwards in the AFL era have more than 1100 goals between them?

3 out of 200?
Other teams fend,make unreasonable attempts at marking, professionally foul.
Brad Sheppard was pushed in the back at full stretch,did a hamstring, missed the 2018 GF.
Noah Balta kneed Josh Kennedy in the head and concussed him in 2019, tilted the game for Richmond, perfectly legal.
Umpires miss stuff every game.
There are hundreds of decisions every game. Play on,mark, contested possessions,frees,OOBs,OOBOTF, goal reviews and so on.In breaking news , they won’t always get it right. And we have cognitive biases,even you, that emphasize mistakes against our side. Put up with it.

One of those would complete the set at Kardinia Park.

Your village called. They want their idiot back.

I thought Kelly’s game was a great response to last week. 28 disposals and ten score involvements.

The Eagles had 32 inside 50s and scored 24 times. That is ridiculous efficiency.

2023 is looking good.

I wonder how Dem is feeling about his wooden spoon prediction for the Pies.
Lose their eight close games and they’d be down there with the Eagles 😱

Nearly is good….

AFL News: Lethal Leigh blasts rulemakers for tearing game apart, De Goey returns, Wines backs Hinkley

Hard for McGovern to be in form with a plate in his ribs…
But yeah ,I agree. The U/21s wouldn’t have a hope at either end. Their best chance is, as you say, through the middle.
Interesting take, well done.

Forget State of Origin, it's time the AFL looked at young vs old
