We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

Oh, I’ve not needed to hide behind satire.

Check my previous posts… I’ve been very upfront with my disdain for the constant whinging by the fans from the west

The AFL to apologise for Perth being far away

Now that is a legit gripe.

But you’ve got to get past this 7 straight at the G thing.

That was an anomaly, not a pattern.

The AFL to apologise for Perth being far away

So form your own comp…oh wait.

The AFL to apologise for Perth being far away

I do hope so too.

The AFL to apologise for Perth being far away

No they wouldn’t.

Chase they don’t support Scotland leaving.

Read the post again.

Four burning questions for Essendon ahead of the AFL restart

You only find it vitriolic cause it upsets you. And for that I don’t apologise

I know…it’s like going to a trout farm with a deep sea net.

Remind me…how many years have WA been the recipient of GST income instead of a donor?

The AFL to apologise for Perth being far away

Prejudiced and resorts to stereotypes.

Charming.

They should be furious.

Qld cricket fans showed time and time again that apparently if England aren’t the opponent then there was no game of cricket being played.

Optus stadium is a better ground and is more timezone friendly to the Indian market. They also stand a fighting chance of winning there.

Four burning questions for Geelong ahead of the AFL restart

I think Geelong will thump you down there.

Geelong beat you there in your premiership year.

That’s the extent of the home ground advantage there. Very, very good teams are made to look bad. Richmond, West Coast, GWS etc. The only two teams that seem to do ok there are Freo and Sydney.

You guessed wrong. Twice.

Actually, Australians are famed for taking two spoons of concrete and just hardening up and getting the job done.

Not sure how writing a satire article could be deemed as “taking this all so seriously”.

The AFL to apologise for Perth being far away

Yeah, but they don’t whinge.

The AFL to apologise for Perth being far away

I’ll respond when you provide some fact and evidence behind your rant.

1999.

That was the last time West Coast had a “home” final in Melbourne. 3 times in total. Shall I fetch a scroll for you to complete the list?

Oh, the oppression!

They got a few more on the board precisely because they were faster with ball in hand.

Oh, I’m not writing us off. I will always believe. I just can’t see where it’s coming from.

Gary is definitely slower these days. He’s lost his swiftness with ball in hand and his natural instinct is failing him. He is a mere mortal now.

Dangerfield is fine. No issues from him there.

Taylor is slower now. So is Selwood. Losing Kelly and not getting an adequate replacement has meant they have lost a bit of zip out of the midfield. Josh Jenkins was lucky to get a guernsey to be honest.

Sing.

China would never, ever recognize any separatist movement. They never have before, and never will in future.

The AFL to apologise for Perth being far away

Oh, so bitter is a compliment then?

The AFL to apologise for Perth being far away

Why?

They would only do that if China recognised WA. Which they wouldn’t.

Besides, half the EU belt and road countries are obliged to show a pan-EU view. And the EU wouldn’t recognise WA.

Good try big fella.

The other belt and road countries? Well…if WA can make tourism and business profitable with African countries, good luck to them. But somehow hard to see a daily flight between WA and Djibouti or Somalia launching anytime soon.

Now that Optus stadium is up and running, I would have no issue with it being in Perth. That’s an amazing stadium and would befit a global audience watching.

But surely you can concede that holding a Grand Final at subiaco would have been absolutely silly.
