Five talking points from AFL Round 13

Good point.

Five talking points from AFL Round 13

Make the AFL a safer place for everyone

What does Gilon and Alistair have in common?

Both have the public and pundits confused as to what is their job responsibility.

Five talking points from AFL Round 13

I agree. Warner has at various times the most feared batsmen in the world. He’s taking some stick for pulling his head to try n build an innings? He hasn’t been a failure; just slower than normal. What if Ponting is correct and he becomes the WC highest run-getter? Stick with him at opening and he’ll repay the favour.

Australia survive scare to defeat Sri Lanka and go top of Cricket World Cup table

True. But some are thinking he’s too slow. We just need to remember he’ll come good.

Finch has never been better

Quick thinking? It’d be newsworthy if it was dropped.

Maxwell denies Karunaratne of a century with quick-thinking catch

Warner’s slump is not as deep as Finch’s was. And I was calling for Finch to be dropped a while back. Warner WILL come good. His secret weapon is Candace.

Finch has never been better

It might work at a pinch

Ben Stratton's controversial 'pinching' tactics on Fantasia- dirty, or fair play?

I think the coach is weak. How could he not be aware? If he wasn’t aware what WAS he doing at the time….he was suppose to be coaching Hawthorn….you know, whilst the match was in progress.

Will you shout me a beer when the Crows beat the Cats in a fortnight. In person. I’m travelling the 1800kms to be there?

The AFL's wasted year

Well, you’d certainly know the patience required.

The AFL's wasted year

Well we are in agreeance on this… in the main. I agree about Smith and his total lack of leadership. Benaud wouldn’t have countenanced it. Chappelli and Border would’ve taken em ‘around the corner’.

I just don’t think Bancroft is the instigator culpritaire. I do think it would’ve better for him to say I was weak and persuaded too easily…and leave it at just that.

Warner’s quiet road back pays off

My reply, even though balanced and well made, incurred the wrath of the algorithm politburo.

Warner’s quiet road back pays off

Does not the more senior person, VC no less, assume a greater responsibility?
Everyone knows that Warner instigated it, Smith to weak to stop it and Bancroft not strong enough to resist trying to fit it in.

Warner has the greatest culpability.

As for how it has turned out Warner was a well established member and Bancroft was trying to make his place secure.
—-
And, tbc, Bancroft was definitely wrong to acquiesce to the author of this cheating.

Warner’s quiet road back pays off

It is incorrect to say Bancroft shifted blame. Warner instigated it- of that there is no dispute. Bancroft’s crime was that he was easily led. He shouldn’t take the blame, for something he didn’t do, and he was right to point out he didn’t instigate these regrettable actions.

That said, Warner has done his time and is making his way back.

I think this also reflects well on Damien Hardwick.

Richmond players' all-class response to Josh Jenkins' gruesome knee injury

That takes some licking.

Five reasons Australia shouldn't play five bowlers

What a season for Jenkins. Demoted. Restored. Kicks a few. Then his knee goes east.

Adelaide down tough Richmond despite Jenkins injury

Being in Gawler, it’d be a ‘screwy’, not a torpedo.

Why the AFL is bad for Australian rules football

But rust, under the bog, will ruin the paintjob.

The sacking, a subsequent apology and a hamstrung FFA compliance committee

Quote Blight in this instance.

David Warner century enough for wasteful Australia to defeat Pakistan

His level of brilliance is in a 1:1 ratio with his obnoxiousness. Gee, he’s copping it bigtime with the crowds, cut him some slack, give him some credit. We are all (mostly) Aussies.

David Warner century enough for wasteful Australia to defeat Pakistan

I love Dave Warner. Give him credit. He’s battled through some difficult circumstances.

We’ll have 3 fire in a few innings to put us in. That’s my hope n wish.
