Devour everything I can read, watch or go to in regard to the AFL, not interested in any other sports really. Have attended a dozen or so grand finals in my life, none of which I have had to pay to get in. (Work that out yourself). Collingwood tragic and member. Will never, ever get over losing the following Grand Finals - 77, 79, 81, 2002, 2011, 2018...1980 and 2003 we were never in it. Watching the Pies win 2010 with my boys was one of the greatest days in my life.

Come on TTF . Mason might get you again even if we play the GF in Alice Springs.

AFL open to Christmas grand final

I reckon Gil should have given himself an 80% cut for inflicting AFLX on us.

Collingwood Cats would be a hell of a side Yattz.

The six AFL clubs that could go to the wall

Is that the same Tim Gore who wrote an all our attack on the Collingwood footy club for reappointing Buckley and then retracted a year later?

As sport goes into lockdown, what do you want to read on The Roar?

Good on you AD. I reckon I’ve been taking the footy for granted for a long time and won’t when it comes back, even if we lose the next 5 grand finals by under a kick .

You know what Col, right now I’d sit with you and watch all three and even enjoy them mate.

Let’s hope we get a Grundy Nic Nat match up this year

Six talking points from AFL Round 1

Good work AD. Was the Tigers Blues close finish more about the upcoming Blues or the Tigers being in second gear I wonder. At this stage most people’s top four predictions went pretty well and I suspect sides playing GWS in Syd may go a lot worse than the cats.

2020 AFL Power Rankings: Round 1

I’m going to take 6 x 6 advice and be optimistic we still get a season. Mind you , if the AFL decree we need at least 12 rounds to call it an official season, it would be classic Pies to be 11-0 with a percentage of 437.7 when the season is cancelled.

Col, this Doc prescribes watching the 1979 GF again and tell me Wayne Harmes didn’t knock that ball back into play from the 7th row.

I’ll still take a flag in a 11 round season if it’s on offer. Still a flag in the history books.

Western Bulldogs vs Collingwood: Friday night forecast

Don’t give it away Bucks. Keep it quiet. Tigers might destroy us next week

Nathan Buckley believes shorter quarters suit Magpies

Well I’m not sure it’s a better call than AFLX but let’s wait and see.

Let's be grateful that we have Gill

Finals preview? If we make it to finals. If Sam Mitchell was playing this round he’d be coughing on the opposition.

They have Ratten

Blimey DTM you nailed the exact margin. Impressive stuff.

24 point win big four against an injury ravaged blues outfit. Premiership hangover?

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 1

Pies minus Treloar and with Pendles having the man flu and Adams a dodgy hip. Have I enough excuses yet ?

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 1

Should be good even though weird with no crowds. Close game and no injuries would be some positive news.

AFL officially green-lights Round 1 despite coronavirus concerns

Deliberately infect the entire playing group and admin. Isolate them all for a month then start the season in June after a 4 week mini preseason with all having immunity. Solved. I’ll see myself out.

The AFL show must go on

I understood what you said the first time Klomps. Richie must still have a hangover from last year.

The AFL show must go on

It will be wonderful watching the Pies 2021 full forward ply his trade this year.

Those clubs not proactive enough to have closed or sold off pokie business have missed the boat now.

How well are the football codes placed to bounce back from COVID-19?

I’m so glad to have some footy on I don’t even care which of the Tigers or Blues win. Will just enjoy watching the game.
