Absolutely. Some have written here about playing the mental health card as an excuse. No one had done that though, just said his wellbeing is the most important, which is true.

Willie Rioli speaks out after ASADA suspension

I knew I’d be hearing from you today Yattuzzi. Sorry didn’t mean to go in studs up as you said.
Interesting match last night. I thought Geelong were gone at three quarter time but West Coast looked spent in the last.
If Tigers lose next week I probably will slink away. There are better things to do than wallow around here when your season is done.

Pies into prelim after conquering Cats

Anon has been pretty consistent on this topic. On the other hand you seem ready to assume it was just a silly thing to do and he had otherwise done nothing much wrong.
I think Anon is being realistic and others are being naive.

Willie Rioli speaks out after ASADA suspension

If he was trying to cover up performance enhancing drugs, which seems the most likely but of course I am only speculating, he was gone anyway.

Who says he was only trying to conceal a recreational drug?

Already worse than the Essendon supporters were.

The Eagles will soar without Rioli

You read this where? It is implying that he was hiding an illicit substance rather than a performance enhancing substance. Has Rioli said that? I am sure that would be the defence but it does not mean it is true.

Geelong Cats vs West Coast Eagles: AFL semi-final forecast

Jack I am sure you would like answers to all these questions but I am equally sure that ASADA and the AFL have a process they have to follow and that does not include answering questions to the media or you and me that could jeopodise a prosecution or defence. You are just going to have to let it play out and wait. It is no different to a criminal case – it plays out in the courts, not on The Roar.

Perhaps when Anon said if the B sample tests positive, he meant if it is found to be substituted.
If so, in that case he will have been found to have tampered, had not provided a proper sample and would get the max.

Come to think of it, I think Gerry might have been barracking rather than giving an honest opinion.

2019 AFL finals series: Week 2 preview

I can’t see Adelaide doing anything next year. More players leaving now and he some others getting on a bit.

I never have. Ok. No offence intended.

That’s the winner!

If it’s a level game
Then if all just the same
I’d much rather see
The match on the G
And if they lose the Cats accept the blame.

Straight-sets exits await Geelong and Brisbane

At their narrow ground they are so hard to stop
Which is the only reason Geelong finished on top
Now they should play and get better on the G
We can then go instead of watching on TV
Else the Grand Final could just be a flop

Straight-sets exits await Geelong and Brisbane

There was a Geelong Stadium quite boutique
For which finals Chris Scott did seek
But what he should remember
Was that when it comes to September
For 60000 the decision would reek

Maybe if wrote a couple I would move from Roar Rookie to Pro.

To the losers go the spoils

Why do you say Eagles form issues run deeper than the Cats? They lost to Hawks in round 23 and Tigers in a close one in round 22, but otherwise have been pretty solid since the bye.

(1) When there is no prior you still have to attempt to dispose of it. Regardless, after taking possession he took a step and a half.
(2) Cameron free wasn’t there in the first place so it balanced out. Hipwood was stupid.
(3) The throw you refer to was in the last quarter, when it was all over.
(4) May have missed based on the rest of the night. They were awarded another mark in front of goal that was clearly touched (Vlastuin I think) so balances out. Both very difficult to tell so it is unfair to refer to it as a blatent error. Blatent only with a frame by frame slow mo.

Dustin Martin gets away with blatant throw to set up goal

I doubt Richmond would have wasted Grimes’ talent on Lamb. The probably brought in a first gamer each time to ease them in to the big league.

Yes there is, that is why West Coast are away.
All I am advocating is that one win by a team in the bottom half of the top 8 doesn’t give then the right to host a top 4 team the following week. West Coast may have beaten the worst top 8 team and Geelong lost to the best.

To the losers go the spoils

As have you (pumping them up) this year.
Last year was not a foregone conclusion and the prelim loss wasn’t a massive surprise to me but the team I was still worried more about was West Coast.
Sorry Pete, Collingwood’s win on the weekend was not that impressive. Geelong were woeful. Of course I said the same about the Collingwood vs GWS final last year (even you would surely admit Collingwood were not that impressive in that game) but Collingwood had the ability to step it up after that. I don’t think Geelong will this year, but very happy to be wrong because I don’t fancy facing West Coast in a prelim.
All in all a very intriguing finals series this year!

Who was the biggest winner from Week 1 of the AFL finals?

That happens nearly every year!

To the losers go the spoils

West Coast only beat the 8th placed team. They can’t dislodge the top team who only lost to the 4th team based on that.
Let’s put it this way, after the weekend results teams and now ranked as follows:
1. Richmond
2. Collingwood
3. Geelong
4. Brisbane
5. West Coast
6. GWS

To the losers go the spoils

They shouldn’t call exaggerated contact staging, but regardless there must be 20 players a match who exaggerate contact to make sure the ump sees a free. So do we suspend them all?
