If they are deemed an umpire’s pet.

Uncomfortable as it might be, all sports fans should watch The Final Quarter

It’s my opinion, and shared by many.

Where’s your proof that he was widely liked?

I can play your game too.

It’s about the vibe of his play right?

People are free to boo at the footy. Goodes rubbed people the wrong way going back to when he won his first Brownlow.

Lindsay Thomas another stager who was disliked.

Apart from this two, I can’t think of an Aboriginal player that rubs people the wrong way.

Just Goodes and Thomas

This probably won’t be posted but we’ll see how it goes. Just a bloke having an opinion. Feel free to disagree.

The feeling about Goodes was that he was an umpire’s pet, didn’t really deserve to be a dual Brownlow Medalist, staged and dived for free kicks, endangered players by recklessly sliding into them studs first.

He was a pretty good player let’s get that straight, but I feel like he’s being made into a greater player than he was in retirement.

The stats will be back me up too. Disposals, goals per game. All solid. Nothing elite of the elite though.

Another opinion of mine that will probably be edited, but again just a bloke with an opinion. Goodes was not forced from the game. He was 35 and his form had fallen off a cliff since the 2012 premiership (he played a great game that day).

Of course, none of this excuses figures in the media making King Kong jokes and other such rubbish.

Sure some people booed out of racism, but Goodes was long not liked by opposition fans for reasons given in the second paragraph.

Just my opinion.

When Finch, S Marsh, M Masrsh were struggling with the red ball, that had absolutely no bearing on whether or not they were selected for white ball cricke.t

Langer and the selectors continually shift the goalposts to suit their agenda.

Glenn Maxwell's Test career cruelled by World Cup flop

They either play all their home finals in Geelong or none at all.

None of this play a home final against GWS in Geelong, but a home final against Richmond at the MCG.

It’s about fairness at the end of the day otherwise it’s all contrived and has as much integrity as a WWE bout.

Chris Scott slams AFL 'furphies' amid Geelong's home final push

Yes Owen Morgan was wrong.

Stats show that teams win 68% of the time batting first.

Throughout the World Cup, the team chasing struggled more than the team that set a score.

Final outrage valid, but also a veneer for the bitter

By definition that’s called choking.

We all know that not all points are equal in tennis.

Djokovic was ice cold in the biggest points of the match (probably his career). Federer couldn’t even hold despite having a massive serve.

Much harder batting second.

But England didn’t have to win the super over. Merely tie. NZ should have bowled better.

NZ batted first and set a pathetic 240. Deserved to lose.

Final outrage valid, but also a veneer for the bitter

NZ should have won the match if they wanted to be champions.

Just many overrated people.

Shaw and Teague taking over making their teams immediately much better proves that.

We’ll see how Rossy goes.

Why it's time for both Shaw and Teague to get the full-time gig

Grubby coach out of ideas.

St Kilda parts ways with Alan Richardson

England needed something like 12 an over then 22 off 9.

NZ should never have allowed it go to a super over being in such a strong position.

England were better when it counted. NZ bowled garbage.

New Zealand were robbed in the World Cup final

They should go coach in a country league if they don’t like public scrutiny.

Why do they think they are on $700k per season for coaching footy? It’s a game for crying out loud. They don’t do anything productive or that helps society in any way.

Carlton don’t need Roos.

Roos took all year to win 4 games at Melbourne.

Teague has won 3 in 5 games.

Why it's time for both Shaw and Teague to get the full-time gig

How about just back the guy in rather than have him under the watch of Roos in an airy fairy mentor role where Roos takes all the credit and none of the blame.

It just undermines the guy who is ultimately responsible. Teague has to do it his way.

2008 was a higher standard match.

2nd and 4th sets of this match weren’t particularly high quality.

Federer played out of his skin, but Djokovic was at about 80% as he was throughout the tournament.

This match will be remembered for Federer’s epic choke job.

Final thoughts on Wimbledon 2019

No-one was robbed.

It’s like saying South Africa were robbed in the 99 semi.

NZ knew what the rule was in the event of a tie, and the rule in the event of a tied super over.

England earned that advantage hitting more 4’s.

In the event of a tie, the win should go to the team that one the round robin game which the poms did.

England stood up to the pressure, were the best team of the tournament. Best Australia, NZ and India.

New Zealand were robbed in the World Cup final

It just goes to show how many overrated and incompetent coaches are out there that completely inexperienced assistants can get better results than guys that have coached for a decade or half a decade.

Also, shows just how bad CEOs and Boards are at selecting the right person for the job.

What a shambolic industry footy is.

Why it's time for both Shaw and Teague to get the full-time gig

Another good decision.

I can’t believe how so many people were defending Bolton and Richardson (and Lyon) going back to last year (or even earlier)

It was pretty clear long ago that these guys weren’t cut out for their jobs. It was clear it would never work out.

Surely the CEOs have to stand down because they backed those coaches on long term contracts. Backed them to the hilt. Set their clubs back years.

St Kilda parts ways with Alan Richardson

If it was a tie, I would have given it to the team that won in the group stage which England did.

So more deserving side got the title.

End of the day the Kiwis blew it.

All their sanctimony didn’t buy them enough good karma in the end.

An unforgettable World Cup Final is decided in the most farcical way

This is just sour grapes because the poms won it.

Does Australia’s 99 World Cup have an asterisk against it because we tied the semi?

England won the qualifying match against NZ anyway. That’s what it should come down to who won the qualifying match.

Darren Lehmann laments 'crap' rule that decided 'the greatest game of cricket' he's seen

All the players loved Bolton and Scott, but suddenly find a new lease of life under a new coach.
