As seen in 'The Fitz Files' and with Wendell Sailor at the Qantas Club.

I’m with Scott on this one Stu. Moss’s mistake was dreadful, though you can’t say he cost the team a win because late on in the match he saved the team a point.

Redmayne ultimately was un-sighted. He had a player in front of him (de Jong) but not on the post, so Redmayne couldn’t have seen the ball until the last nano-second.

I think they should leave him with the (c) next to his name. Andy appears to be loving it.

Your opening like was literally going to be my seventh talking point, but I didn’t want to kick the poor lad when he was down. What on Earth is going on with Tommy?

I agree, defining the term ‘quality’ may be an article in and of itself.

I’m coming more from the general catch-all criticism that the A-League “just isn’t any good.” And I, to the contrary, think on the whole that it is quite good.

Agreed Stevo.

Never said I was an expert. As my title suggests, I’m merely a guru.

And I see also that you have been highly critical of Mike Tuckerman’s work. If one of the better writers such as he cannot please you, I am not losing any sleep that my part-time output doesn’t pass muster with you.

Thanks as always for the read. Glad you enjoyed it!

I actually didn’t think it was a penalty Kang. The hand movement wasn’t deliberate, and the ball went to hand. And I’m glad VAR didn’t intervene. As I have always said, whether it was right or wrong, the ref was there to make a decision, let him make the decision.

Agree to get rid of the VAR though.

As I said Kang, I am likely a soft marker when it comes to quality, and even my local social club I tend to find I am the only one easily pleased. On Saturday, I just felt like I never really sat back and thought to myself: gee this is rubbish.

Course, judging by some of the comments this morning, you think I’m too easy, others think I’m just ill-informed. Perhaps the answer is somewhere in the middle.

Six talking points from A-League Round 3

As is usual with your commentary, you’ve picked a singular element from what I’ve written, responded to it in isolation, and over analysed that, instead of considering the piece as a whole. I’m really talking about the quality of the A-League.

If you want to write an article about the AFL, be my guest.

Thanks for the read. I’m always curious which part of my writing you’re going to lambast each week, and this round you again did not surprise.

I’m always up for some constructive criticism. You’ve got the criticism part, I just can’t see the constructive element, so there’s not much I can do with your feedback. Thanks for the read.

I don’t.

Geez, and people accuse knights fans of being salty.

Bit of class Wayne, that's all we Novocastrians ask

I love this article so much, I would to have intimate relations with this article, and make little baby articles with it.

Spot on.

And I love that Newcastle fans continue to fan the flames of discontent about Bennett’s time here. No matter how he re-writes his legacy, it is important that people never forget about what actually happened here with him.

Bit of class Wayne, that's all we Novocastrians ask

A post that shows little to no actual understanding of what happened in Newcastle.

Kudos Emcie.

Hey Wayne, Newcastle regrets you too

Well said Adrian. Spot on mate. Pay no attention to anyone that disagrees with you mate. All you’ve done is set out the timeline.

Bring on 2019.

Hey Wayne, Newcastle regrets you too

Hey Wayne, rubbish comment on your part. It’s not a conspiracy theory about Bennett leaving our club in near ruins, it is simply stating fact. he was paid to bring in instant success, didn’t achieve it, and left when the cheques stopped clearing. He traded our future for his personal gain. That is not a conspiracy theory, it is simply the state of affairs.

Hey Wayne, Newcastle regrets you too

Thanks Alex. Agree to disagree about Honda I guess. Sorry you weren’t able to appreciate what he had to offer.

At the risk of sounding difficult, and I agree the 40,000+ crowd is good, I still don’t understand why that isn’t a sell out. Agree it was a great game.

I tried to give the FFA something Paul.

Was hoping not to be accused of being too negative or low brow.

Thanks for the read and the input Nemesis.

Glad you enjoyed the article.

I actually tend to have some sympathy for your Ray Chamberlain analysis there.

He definitely loves it when the game is about him. From all appearances at least, it appears that he’s happiest when the attention is on him, whether it be popular or unpopular attention.

I’ve always believed that the best umpires don’t seek attention, and hope to remain irrelevant.

Pies fire in final quarter to book preliminary final

Called it as I saw it.

If not for De Goey, Collingwood would not have been in the match. He was an absolute star.

Giants were simply always up against it.

Your name clearly gives away that you’re a Collingwood fan, so we might just have to agree to disagree.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Gotta say, re: Hartung, never thought I would hear that.

St Kilda Saints vs North Melbourne Kangaroos: AFL highlights, live scores, blog

Full Time
A fun affair, with the Kangaroos running out 17.15 (117) to 14.10 (94) winners over St Kilda.

Ben Brown missed out on the Coleman, and Jarrad Waite finishes off with a win to his name, his last kick in the game hitting the post after the siren.

North were always in control, but in a testament to their season, they never really killed off the opposition, and you always felt they were a chance to slip up.

Saints to their credit made it a contest, which was essentially a contest for pride, and the likes of Lonie, Steven, Billings and Carlisle should be ably assisted by the likes of Membrey and a fit McCartin next year.

and that brings to an end the AFL home and away season for 2018.

Big first round of finals coming up in two weeks – the Tigers meet the Hawks in September for the first time, a Sydney derby.

You will see it all here on The Roar.

But tonight, the Kangaroos finish their season with a well deserved win.

Roos by 23.


St Kilda Saints : 94
North Melbourne : 116
