Pope Paul VII hasn't published any posts yet

Hi Marnie. Not sure how it goes with twitter but abusive people on the NM facebook sites are regularly banned.

What is tiresome is the continual “Sack Scott” comments, “insert name here” is a spud, ludicrous trade talk (Cunnington!? Brown!?) and general tactical advice like AFL is easy.

Very interesting MM. I was in a South Melbourne zone and my dad was the only person I knew who supported them back then! Well done with your Mum. My Mum is still a ruthless tipster at the age of 92. She is partial to just about everyone but The Roos! Very out character compared to the rest of her life but footy is footy to her and there is no room for sentiment.

Sloppy Ablett. That’s his nickname at the club. Has a greater unco ever played the game?

Worpel is a dill for stepping into him.

Hutchy is a bona fide drama dingbat. Sounding the death knell for clubs on struggle street and denigrating players, officials, coaches, their mums, the milkman and Mother Teresa are his favourite past times. The day he actually provides some insight will be a momentous day.

I haven’t left the NM groups I’m in but you are spot on MM, they are dreadfully negative.

I’m a glutton for punishment but also very optimistic. I’m patiently waiting for the North resurgence which I’m confident is around the corner and hanging in these groups to see the reaction of these absurd fans.

I’ve followed North since 1974 and picked them from splendid isolation in country NSW when everyone was following the big teams of the day – Carl, Ess, Rich, Coll and Haw. North has nor a single premiership to their name. Their underdog story was and still is irresistible.

You are right, it’s not life and death………it’s much more important than that.

This impression is because if anyone even hints at justice and fairness for all they are labelled a lefty.

What was wrong with Ablett? Missed his hat trick of late, high hits.

Five talking points from AFL Round 9

Well I’m the only Pope Paul VII I know, having succeeded the vacancy left by Paul VI, so I think it’s real enough. To date I’ve staved off challenges by 2 John Pauls, a Benedict and a Francis.
I’d hate to see you lose “from Brissie” as we old VFL team supporters living in foreign lands must stick together. Having said that, Pope Col I is a definite goer I reckon.

As long as you’re comfortable ‘pies.

No worries Col. Thanks for asking she was very happy. She’s also a bit partial to GWS so she got happier as the weekend went by!

It’s not going to rain for about 4 mths. People will be eating their franking credits and charitable slum lordships but they will be happy.

Vardy’s behaviour was still outrageous though.

Sure isn’t 1994 prelim Geel 32 North 14.

It turns out Razor Ray even umpires the other umpires

Sling tackles have been suspensions for about 5 yrs now. Gone and deservedly so.

The tackle that earned Lewis Jetta a one-week suspension... and a free kick

They missed a truckload of them. That would have evened the ledger a bit. Free kick count was 20-12 Sydney’s way. Umpires be damned.

Did the umpires miss a last-minute free that could have won the Roos the game?

Yes that’s exactly what Stevo was thinking when he launched the torp.

Jaidyn Stephenson's magnificent 65m barrel might be the greatest thing ever

Pity they didn’t umpire the game. North flogged 20-12 in the frees. Greater than margin.

He parked his Rolls on the fence.

My memories of Bob Hawke, the sports fanatic

Nice one Lordy. Facing Thommo, Tangles and Gus is way more impressive than being PM.

Pensioners and veterans get a lot of that welfare. Howard introduced middle class welfare.

Compulsory voting is the best. Australia leaves the rest of the english speaking universe in the dirt for social engagement.

Rampe’s a big Jessie.

AFLPA, Swans weigh options on Rampe fine

Very interesting list. Perhaps highlights why bowlers are traditionally the big deal in World Cups. In the end it might come down into which team can keep wickets in hand against the more talented bowlers. Dashers beware. I can still see McCullum’s insane approach to Starc in 2015 in the first over…..not that McCullum lasted the over.
