He’s not rolling around on the ground after someone gently brushed up against him, so you have a point.

Learning football at 35: It is possible, and loads of fun too

Great article. Not playing for points seems like a sensible move, although I’m sure everyone is keeping tabs in their mind.

Richmond are the least likeable club in the AFL right now, which is some achievement. Hardwick’s whining after the Dusty-Kennedy incident was the last straw for me. I hope they don’t win another flag for thirty years.

Damien Hardwick, give it a rest

I guess Fremantle are a contender, too.

Port's best win in years expands the contender circle

You’ve worked out that the game is played between two teams, which makes you an expert on some level.

I’m thinking of Lyon’s career as a whole. The R1 game showed that this team can entertain, but that disappeared for three weeks. Ross is an enigma.

Good to see you up and about this week, Cat.

A four-goal win against 16th. Inscribe their name on the cup already.

I have mixed feelings about him. Lyon gets every ounce out of the talent at his disposal, but the grinding style is repulsive to me.

You could have guaranteed that WC & GWS would flop after being talked up last week.

I’ve seen a fair bit of the Hawks this year (three Sunday afternoon matches in a row), and I’m sticking with my prediction that they won’t make the eight.

'Overrated' Cats will still beat the Hawks on Easter Monday

Pretty good when Ross lets them off the leash.

They’ll win by 2,700 if they start today.

Can’t talk about a massive sicko because the Eels are winning games. Galaxy brain.

'He wasn't educated': De Belin's lawyers play the blame game

There’s been a few glimpses of the Orange Tsunami this season, the Giants lacked run last year without Williams.

Why running is the key to winning

This team has been overrated by many. A six-win streak at the beginning of 2017, but they’ve only been a slightly-above-average team since then.

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

They were OK in the first Quarter, and had a few good patches after that; but apart from Stack’s excellent debut, and a solid effort from Lynch, there wasn’t much to get excited about. A great win against Port, though.

Why the Giants are the AFL's number one early-season contender

You are welcome to Patton.

Shiel’s ability to accelerate away from the contest was his biggest asset at the Giants.

I think the addendum about betting in this article highlights the problem with a sport that is dependent wagering for survival.

Who will be racing's next champion?

Yet you watch some snippets of 90s footy, and it’s just wild kicks between the half-forward lines. We tend to filter out the bad games of the past.

A rule change was never the answer to AFL's goal-kicking woes

Roughead is a champion, but he looked like a 50yo man out there today. One season too many.

It was a bold performance, tenacious.

I don’t know about picking Brisbane to win in Melbourne. I know they beat North, but as I said last week, North are terrible.

They’ve gone from being the competition’s top-scoring team to being Carlton. Something is dreadfully wrong.
