Long way to go but if you slip to 2 or 3 games out of the 8 it gets tough. Suns will need to go 5-2 or maybe 6-1 if they lose to the Pies

Six Points: The dangerous problem the AFL must fix now, and is there a better solution than red cards?

Not sure the top 8 is set just yet but some games this week could seal some fates.

Blues v Saints
Suns VPies
Lions V Dogs

If the top sides win those 3 there are probably 3 less teams pushing for finals

Pies form is misleading for mine, bear the Blues by 4 points without McKay after Weitering went down, beat Hawks by 4 points who have won 1 game sine round 5 (just 2 since round 2) and beat the4 win giants by 11

Blues were great(LewisYoung put his hand up for recruit of the year) but we have lost to Collingwood, the Suns and Tigers – still a ways to go before we start talking premiership.

The win yesterday does make finals close to reality though 3-5 from here will do it

AFL Saturday Study: Cats and Tigers brilliant, but brutal Blues are Melbourne's biggest threat for the flag

You have to remember Ratten had the expansion clubs to deal with on list management pick 10 was really pick 25

AFL Saturday Study: Cats and Tigers brilliant, but brutal Blues are Melbourne's biggest threat for the flag

The coach did catch them at the right time in terms of age and has had both McKay and Curnow in the team when previous coaches didn’t but he has galvanised the side

another quality contribution.

AFL NEWS: De Goey cops fine after Bali incident, Pies issue statement on TikTok vid, Dangerfield, Dusty back

Just a quick follow up Angela;
In late 1996 I was at a 21st and asked, “would you ladies like a drink” to some other 21 year olds I’d gone to school with and got told the exact same thing you just said (which is likely something that was said by the parents at that party 30 years earlier). When I suggested “would you women like a drink” sounded worse they all agreed.
These days those women are regularly catching up for “girls nights” and don’t bat an eye if they are referred to as “ladies”.

Not sure you speak for all women there Angela.
But the point is you are assigning an interpretation to the language, and deeming which one you like and which one you don’t, that isn’t intended from the user or the literal definition.
If you are going to go back to “past times” to state the word lady “implies that women have to be demure and gentle and in need of male protection.” why are you not going back to “past times” where the word woman explicitly meant “wife” and implied ownership (ever heard someone say “she is my woman?”).
You say you are using the 22nd century version of the word woman but still want to use the 18th century version of the word lady?
PS – as I stated earlier “my terminology” has just as, if not more, frequently included “woman” and “female” as “girl” or “lady”

I have no idea what you are talking about here Angela.

“Fascinating how in all this discussion the role of parents is completely dismissed.” Given I have been the one asking how the you would feel if yhis was your child and the one who has been talking about the important role I as a parent have on impacting my child and the responsibilit I would take for my failings as a parent if my child acted in this way I fail to see how I am part of dismissing the role of parents.

Perhaps it will be like when we palyed the Eagles last year?

Honey in for Martin and Kemp for S Durdin you think Diesel? Woudln’t mind seeing Dow or Carroll in for Newnes as well.

Oh and for what its worth Angela – if you look up the origins of the word “woman”
“Old English wīfmon, -man (see wife, man), a formation peculiar to English, the ancient word being wife.” So your preferred term implies either she is married, or (no doubt originally) subordinated to a man.
If you want to go with female its origins are;
“from the Latin femella, meaning “young woman, girl,”

Not at my best at 9.52pm.
Making some incisive points though Angela 😔

Just a bit of poetic licence Bretto.

Media bullying of Jordan De Goey has been a disgusting witch-hunt

Angela – I have only referred to the person in question as a lady in response to Peter the Scribe referring to her as a lady (although what you infer from the term and what I engender aren’t necessarily the same thing). And you will find that I have referred to her as a girl, a woman and a female. I don’t like repetition in my writing.
If you want to take offence at anyone of those terms that is fine but personally I think I can engender a much more degoratory tone into the word “woman” or “female” as you can infer out of the word girl.
As for your first point, if you can’t see the womans top being pulled down and her quickly pulling it back up in the VIDEO (which was blurred out presumably so you don’t see the womans nipple) then you are paying more attention to the nomenclature than you are to the issue.
FWIW – I have always aspired to being a gentleman, I have and probably will continue to fall short of the mark but i got close enough for my wife.

Media bullying of Jordan De Goey has been a disgusting witch-hunt

Do you have to be in Bali to know that pulling down a girl top in public is wrong?

Its why Collingwood said it was wrong.
Its why De Goey apologised for it being wrong.

It would certainly consitute harrassment (the charge he pled guilty to in NY) if the woman he did it to reported it.

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 15

” When she is 26 Macca she can do whatever she wants” Yes she can Peter, but again, her choices have consequences, just like De Goey’s and his lady’s.
If she was to steal something, abuse someone, have s ax in the street or act in any way that is against what society deems acceptable she has to wear the consequences. Just like De Goey and his lady.
I use my daughter the way I ask you to consider your sons, it is all well and good to claim “they are consenting adults” but when you bring it back to hard reality and test your morals by considering how you would feel if it was your children it quickly shows (as we can see when you discussed you children and tehir partners attitudes) the actions are not acceptable, or “shocking” as you described them.

Media bullying of Jordan De Goey has been a disgusting witch-hunt

Never claimed she did Peter, just as I said she has the right to choose but choices have consequences.
She might care about Collingwood and the other AFL clubs react to her choices, if indeed they were her choices.

Voss was far from happy with last weeks efforts, the Blues on ball brigade should come out with a real point to prove – I am not convinced it will be enough to make up for what we are missing down back but hopefully it is an entertaining game.

I almost used Ken Hunter, but didn’t want to pick a WA boy just to see your response.

Ahh yes, it was only becuase they are spineless. They shold have defended a womans right to have her top pulled down in public.

Media bullying of Jordan De Goey has been a disgusting witch-hunt

Not at all. I have expectations my daughter respects herself enough to be treated well by her partner. I hvae expectations that when she goes out she will act in a way society deems acceptable. She cna shoose not to do that but she will hace to accept the consequences that follow her choices.

Media bullying of Jordan De Goey has been a disgusting witch-hunt

She can decide her own self respect, I can decide my reaction to her decision.

Choices have consequences.
