Tedesco is the best player to watch; I’m happy with this.

The Roar's top 50 NRL players: 10-1

The no-mark rule seems like a good idea.

I think they would have to run the ball to the 25m mark before kicking a wet ball. I don’t think the rule should specify that the ball needs to leave the 50m zone on the full.

How 2019's AFL rule changes will play out on the field

History shows that teams usually take a long time to gel. The problem for the Blues is that they really aren’t a destination club these days.

They shouldn’t become professional footballers if they are so picky about where they play.

The easiest rule change to make re: kick ins would be to make it compulsory that the ball leaves the 50m zone. No more kicking to the pockets.

These guys are going to be on the bottom for so long, they’ll soak up so much draft talent that they’ll be winning premierships again by 2025, or so.

2019 AFL season preview: Carlton Blues

Being paid big $$$ to play a game whilst living in a Gold Coast penthouse is the ideal job. If that’s not good enough for them, then they don’t deserve to play professional sport.

He’s awful.

St. Kilda should move to Tasmania.

This is my opportunity to say that Nathan Broad is the worst player in the competition. If Corey Ellis is VFL standard, then Broad is Ovens & Murray material.

I want Carlton to suffer.

Why I'm getting around the good old Navy Blues

AFLW is a little too collegial. Needs more biffo.

What AFLW Round 3 taught us

these sides match up pretty well, IMO

The Round 1 fixture the AFL got wrong

I don’t care if Warne can be a ‘nuanced’ or not. He’s a goon and a sleaze. Leave him at the pub.

Iconic commentator slams Shane Warne over 'disrespectful' coverage

I don’t think being a champion necessarily translates into being a media figure. Warne’s long list of misdeeds during his playing career should have seen him out of the public eye after his final match.

The idea that interstate games are irrelevant to a discussion like this is bizarre. It’s a huge factor.

An early guesstimate on how many wins for Geelong this season, Cat? I say 10.

Numbers Game: Which teams will rise and fall in the AFL in 2019?

I’m surprised that interstate wins don’t get more scrutiny in analyses like this. I know that there’s an imbalance between Victorian teams and everyone else, but Richmond’s record was artificially propped up by playing so many games at the MCG.

Fifty-over ODIs really are an anachronism, in the age of T20s. I think they should be phased out.

Australia face a nightmare tour of India

It doesn’t matter about the outcome of the criminal trial. The fact that he has been charged with this offence has brought the game into disrepute.

These GIFs show that the Union code is watchable, if teams actually show some initiative.

I gave up watching rugby the best part of twenty years ago. Endless mauls were interrupted only by kicks for touch. I might watch England’s games in the World Cup, if they continue to play like this.

Will England rule the world in 2019?

They are certainties, IMO.

Why AFLW can look ugly, and what teams can do to fix it

Ultimately, the criticisms made about AFLW are the same as those made men’s football: second-rate teams turning matches into a giant melee, and players missing targets by foot & hand.

The Dockers are paying the price for signing Lyon to a long-term contract.

They can improve with a more attacking game plan, but it’s not happening with Ross in charge.

Fremantle 2019: Purple reign, or Purple rain?

I think they’ll make the eight, and probably win a Final, but I don’t think they’ll make a huge impact on the competition.

The Melbourne media need to hype one Victorian club every pre-season, and the Bombers are backing up again this year.

Essendon aren't the finals lock you think they are, and here's why
