The head says Doggies will be more desperate, no way they let this slip. They will win.

However, the heart wants Melbourne and is tipping Melbourne.

– Melbourne
– 2 points
– Norm Smith: Clayton Oliver
– First Goal: Kysaiah Pickett

Go Demons!

The Roar's AFL grand final expert tips and predictions

It’s his own fault no doubt, but can’t help but be sad for Toby (and GWS).

Toby Greene's suspension decided for umpire hit

😂

Free Willie! Rioli could make AFL return this Saturday

Soooooo exciting! Hope he makes the team. At last, something to smile about.

Free Willie! Rioli could make AFL return this Saturday

Tricky sensitive subject to broach, but I’ll try…

Racism is never acceptable, no debate. (And that video was just super awks with Tex reading from a teleprompter/cue card off screen… (Doesn’t mean he wasn’t genuine- can see he’s broken and remorseful. But still, awks). And good on Robbie Young for helping Tex out and participating in a public apology.

Hope this public apology gesture was genuine, and not some a token PR move by the AFL.

We can talk and talk and be disgusted about racism, but how do we actually effect change? Prejudice is way too deeply ingrained in society. From experience growing up in Africa, within the BAME community, there’s even worse divisions along colourism and tribalism. Same in the Hispanic community too…

So until as humans, we can evolve out of prejudice, these incidents will never stop.

Calling it out is a good start. But what next? The outrage dies down till the next incident? Rinse and repeat?

I have no answers, but IMO, in this particular instance lynching Tex into exile/oblivion isn’t the solution.

Why Taylor Walker’s apology isn't enough

Very true. The way they announced they would reunite them at the Saints in 2 years’ time smacked of arrogance.

Nevertheless, I have a soft spot for the Saints and would love them to get up. Too many holes in their list though.

Would Clarko be welcome at the Suns, or is Dew locked in solid? Would be amazing to see what Clarko does with such a list.

Are the Suns headed for the wooden spoon?

Need the “twin towers” to have a positive association… Imagine them in the same forward line in whatever team… Dreams.

Still so young… Let’s hope the club and the AFL look after him.

Thanks Venners!

Eagle reveals the brutal toll of concussion forcing him to retire at 22

Worse, slower, older, almost zero good/promising kids… The end is nigh’!

Curious how we navigate this… List Management has been woeful last 3-4 years, would take a miracle, fresh game-plan, fresh assistants for Simpson, and a hell of a lot of talented kids to turn it around.

Let the rubbernecking commence.

Shai Bolton extends his time at Tigerland

Love your passion.

They are a fantastic team to watch when in sync.

Think King will be lost to Saints eventually.

Are the Suns headed for the wooden spoon?

Yep. Eagles are cooked. Most likely for the next few years. Sad times ahead.

'Missing the minor premiership might be the least of their worries': Six talking points from AFL Round 19

We need to finish 8th. If Sydney stay 6th and we stay 7th, they’ll punish us at GMHBA.
If finals are locked by round 22, we need to lose that last game and hopefully finish 8th. (Won’t need to tank at the Gabba anyway. Can pencil in that as a loss – Hopefully it’s a handy loss for 8th).

Between him and Kelli Underwood, the mute button is handy.

James Brayshaw's voice nearly cracks calling Cody Weightman's absolute screamer

Even if Melbourne win the flag, still not sure we can trust them… 😛

Deja vu as Dees and Dogs clash in front of empty stands once again

Terrible news. Hope he makes a full recovery.

Done and dusted: Tigers champ gets worst possible news after kidney injury

Agreed, NM vs Essendon could be exciting. North played well the other night. Aaron Hall… Zurhaar, Larkey, Cunnington, Ziebell… wow. (Especially Hall).

'Who can do the best Bradbury?' Six mediocre teams fighting out two finals spots

Won’t be the Eagles. Put a line through 2021 and play some kids. Who can we beat from here? … Maybeee Adelaide and mayyyybeee Freo. BIG maybes! No way we beat any of the others.

Hopefully we never talk of this injury-ravaged mini-nightmare season again…

With Eagles pretty much out, go the Lions!
Oh, and sad for Hipwood. He deserved to be there if Lions go all the way.

'Who can do the best Bradbury?' Six mediocre teams fighting out two finals spots

Unfortunate headline given the vile social media attack.

This ought to be taken down, or at the very least, headline revised.

"That is not on": Zac Williams slammed after copping a week for ultimate dog act

As soon as the crowds were cancelled hours before match, it was a fait accompli.
IMO an exceptional sports psychologist is the first thing this team needs.
Any time an unexpected announcement happens before a game, they turn to jelly.
Predictable and bizarre.
With a VIC hub looming looks like the season’s done for Eagles. Buy the time they mentally adjust and started winning, will have fallen out of the 8.

Greater Merch potential. He’s flaky, doesn’t trust them fully yet.

AFL power rankings: Here's where your team is at

Yeah. Very likeable, the Lions. Prefer them to win over Demons, Doggies.
But they won’t. Think will be Cats v Demons . In which case, go Cats. (Although my puppy supports the Demons, and is beating me in our tipping comp).

AFL power rankings: Here's where your team is at

After being a coward and not watching 3/4 of the final quarter vs Richmond live, have now rewatched the whole quarter five tines.

Never gets old. 😊

AFL power rankings: Here's where your team is at

Nope. Eagles just, in a much closer contest than many will expect.
Looking forward to this.
