The funny side of failure

The end of an era

The three most successful teams of the last fifteen years, Hawthorn, Geelong, and Sydney, are finished – at least in the short term. In fact, all three will miss the finals in 2019.

they can’t make the finals, so give him a game, who cares

'Like shooting Bambi': Clarko leaves door open for Roughead to keep his spot

England aren’t always fussed by the team captain making runs. Remember when they played Mike Brearley purely as a captain?

England's captain is the Root of their problems

any team that tanks should have 20 points deducted next season

Getting across the line would be #1 priority.

I predicted a Game of Thrones-style situation in the coaching ranks this year.

Fremantle sacks Ross Lyon and CEO

I think finishing 1/2 was unexpected this year, but a lot of people thought they we on-track for contention next season, or 2021.

How deep do the Lions bat?

England’s garbage batsmen are our only chance of hanging on.

England second Ashes Test player ratings: Archer flips series as Stokes finds form

The Lions/Giants situation is analogous to the Waratahs/Reds a decade ago. The Waratahs were contenders for a number of seasons, but couldn’t quite get the job done; the Reds came along a couple of years later and won the Super Rugby pretty much out of nowhere.

I’m disillusioned with the whole thing, and life in general, to be honest.

Five talking points from AFL Round 22

They still go to sleep for large chunks of time. Disnick was right about great coaches getting teams good within three years.

I haven’t been watching much football lately, but your lot seem to have worked out where the sticks are :silly: Might be a 2016 redux.

Five talking points from AFL Round 22

to be honest, I don’t really care anymore; I went for a Sunday afternoon trip, the bus went right past the stadium and I didn’t even remember the game was on

That’s the sort of attitude that wrecks competitions.

Why the 2019 AFL season seems so unsatisfying

Thanks for the comments. I have decided that I have had enough of this sport, as I don’t find it as enjoyable as I once did. This is my final word on football here, but I may write something on other sports. Goodbye.

Why the 2019 AFL season seems so unsatisfying

the Hawks could be in holiday mode, or highly motivated to frack up the G’s season — probably depends on how the match starts

Greater Western Sydney vs Hawthorn: Friday night forecast

the Giants haven’t won four in succession this year, so…

Surely he gets a chance to kick a bag against the Suns.

Clarkson: Roughead sentimentality not a priority

GWS are fifth. Sorry to spoil your fun.

Why the Brisbane Lions will win the flag

England can’t win Tests with ODI players. It would be a national disgrace if we can’t at least tie the series.

England must back Jonny Bairstow at Lord's

I don’t see the big deal.

Cronulla have released a Paul Gallen retirement jersey and it's the worst thing we've ever seen

Surely Anderson gets a 0 or a 1, as he did actually play in the match.

England first Ashes Test player ratings: Burns shines as middle order flops

If you’re playing Stokes at four, you’re basically giving up.

England don't need to panic just yet

They are fifth.

Why the Brisbane Lions will win the flag

They haven’t played a to 4 team since the opening game against the Eagles, so their form is hard to gauge.
