Dees need the competition. A loss won’t hurt.

The Fremantle bubble has burst, and they could be in freefall

You know something else about 1987? The umpires on average paid 60 free kicks per game. In 2021 it was 40.
Less free kicks leads to more congestion. It also leads to more frustration for the fans when a tiggy touchwood rule of the week free is paid after another rule is ignored.
The direction by the AFL to umpires to ignore too high (it’s only incedental), let a player throw the ball in a tackle under the guise of it coming loose, tunnel players in a marking contest, jump on a player on the ground but not pay in the back (just hold the ball in to the poor guy and it will be his fault for not getting the ball out) all because we “want to keep the game moving” is infuriating enough, but then when it is followed by a player stumbling on the mark instead of standing to give 50m (the worst rule of all time) or a poor defender being penalised for deliberate, or is that insufficient intent, when his 40m kick bounces the wrong way, it leads to the true dissent (i.e. the supporters).
I know most here say we don’t want more frees, we want to keep umpires out of it, but the best way to open up the game would be to enforce the rules. I have never seen crowds more frustrated than they are now. The AFL has caused it. They invent stupid rules instead of applying what they have. Next they will push for last touch out of bounds because of the difficulty in judging if something is deliberate, when their silly interpretation has caused this issue in the first place. Can’t wait for the 40 second breaks while the ARC works out who touched it last.

The rise of the flood defence: An AFL malaise

Pathetic

'Wouldn't be a free in Auskick': Is this the softest call of the year?

I think his point was it was incidental, no impact on the player. I get the argument about head knocks, but understand where McGuire is coming from. What will be next, suspensions for an accidental high tackle?

I did too.
Their website lists him as a key forward and he is 199 cm. It would be more appropriate to compare him with Tom Lynch (same height and role). 1.4 goals per game vs. 2.1.

I said he had the second most kicks in that match and you said you’d list 40 mids who had more.
It’s not my fault you didn’t know what you wrote.

Seems my spell check hasn’t heard of Tabs either

What planet are you on?
Of course it’s a winning argument. You always say never look back, but you would in your position. And you are clearly traumatised by the recent post, so you don’t even live by your comments.

Who is Tab’s? Never heard of him.

You said you could list 40 mids who had more kicks than Martin.
I picked one player from your list, just one, being Dangerfield. He had 8 kicks. That’s a lot less than Martin’s 17.
Then I looked again. You listed 4 Tigers. Martin had the most kicks of all Tigers.
Big fail by you there Don.

Well if Freo ever win a Premiership in your lifetime, tell me you won’t watch a replay.

Well argued.

With Leon Cameron gone, GWS finally have a chance

What happened last year at Optus?

The Dreamtime is back at the G, but which Essendon side will show up?

Go on then.

Nothing wrong with celebrating the past. Wallowing is what you would do if you looked at your club’s past.

More kicks than all but one player in the match against Hawthorn.
You should stop commenting when you don’t understand Don.

I’ll perceive this. You are more traumatised by Richmond’s recent success than anyone is traumatised by your pathetic comments on Richmond.

Lynch could have got a week, though I am not convinced. However, the incidents are quite different.
Toby Greene saw Dangerfield and raised his elbow into his head as he got up.
Impey came in with his head at elbow height. The tackler has to take some personal responsibility to protect himself, because even if Lynch stood motionless, Impey would have been on the wrong end of it.

'Where are we?' Robbo can't believe AFL's inconsistency on high elbows as Lynch is spared

I don’t see fear, only mocking.

I don’t think anyone could program a bot to be so convoluted.

I doubt anyone is traumatised by a harmless troll.

Purple often say wet weather helps the weaker team, but the truth is the more skilful teams handle wet weather better. If Freo are as good as their ladder position, they need to do better than that against GC, regardless of weather.

I wouldn’t say Hawthorn threw the game away. Richmond went to sleep but woke up just in time.

It probably works for NRL because they get such low crowds in NSW.
