Hey Obby. Moscow had it’s warmest January on record in 2020.

Climate Change is a Wealth distribution conspiracy ya reckon? Those devious lefties have always got a cunning plan but this has to be their best.

And BLM is another fiendish leftist plot.

Thanks for clearing those things up for us.

Cricket must start preparing for climate change

Crikey. 5 weeks.

I heard that the ump had called touch ball. That was on foxtel later on and on a radio report later. Was that misreported?

Six talking points from AFL Round 7

It is definitely hotter though, in Sydney at least, whatever your belief is in climate change.

We’ve had 2 rounds of local cricket cancelled it the last 5 seasons due to extreme heat – one was around 44. The other was what I thought was a reasonable 40 but to be fair in was pretty oppressive so discretion was the order of the day.

Now this may have happen before I came to Sydney in 1985 but I’m not aware of it.

Just a note on climate change, people tend to focus on extremes. What slips by is the warm autumns and winters we have. Frequent mid to high to 20s in autumn is new. Days over 20 in June, July, August were previously uncommon events.

Maybe they should just limit the players to 3 or 4 training sessions after work (They’ll have to find jobs first ) and resocialise them.

No one complained about the length of quarters or unfortunate injuries when that happened.

AFL players are being pushed to the limit

Start with the coaches.

Chris Scott throws his support behind radical change to AFL

Rohan Connolly wrote a great defence of the 20 min quarter on footology.

16 mins caters to dull defensive footy and doesn’t guard against blow outs anyway.

The data on injuries is dubious.

Yep Joneses all over the shop.

Depends. How drunk are they?

Jones’ dad was also a fast bowler, I J (Jeff) Jones.

Took 6/118 in the Lawry/Simmo big stand innings.

Had about as much luck as his son with injury. 15 tests.

More importantly can the Freo Quokkas bring back the green and red?

It can only improve Fyfo’s hair cut.

I was thinking of that match a few years ago when NM kicked 21 10 to Melb 20 11.

And a couple of yrs later put on 10.4 vs Ade 0.0 when the crows were undefeated.

Alas this team is a tinsy bit less able. And Melb seem to have finally conquered their appetite for self destruction.

Still, I prefer a high score even if North are on the wrong side of it. A breeze might be their only chance to top the ton this year.

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 7

Maybe they have a touch of Hawthorn in 2016. As when GWS torched them by 12 goals.

North’s only hope is a 10 goal breeze in the first quarter.

Collingwood are an unstable rabble

Mrs Pope and my youngest holding up well, Pete. Didn’t mind Wrighty as player, so maybe he will bring some of that grit.

I’m giving it ALL I got MACCA.

At the risk of sounding like Bluebags62;

Heery McCreery look’s a good prospect. Should he Captain COACH?

Spot on Pete.

Poor defenders already have one arm tied behind the frequently erroneously applied chop arms.

However the back 6 often end up the back 18 with these allegedly worn out players flooding back so they get more than enough help.

I’m not too worried about shellackings. North have had plenty and given plenty.

When they eventually get it together I’d rather the style of game is where they can win by 10 goals than 10 points.

One flaw in North’s cunning rebuild plan is that they have started without multiple tall forwards, so I may be a bit optimistic.

Are AFL games too long?

A few of these blokes getting on a bit and with a history of injury.

Ah ok. Forgot about that one.
