That’s why they have alcohol-free sections.

Why the AFL is right to remove abusive spectators

AFL is a financial behemoth.

If the clubs want to run the A-League, what's their plan?

Has David Gallop succeeded anywhere he’s gone?

He was ran out of the NRL, now the A-League is close to collapsing on his watch.

What else would you expect from Americans?

USA break World Cup records with 13-0 annihilation of Thailand

I’m not sure how Goodwin isn’t under pressure and fighting to keep his job.

It’s basically a lost year for a club in the window.

They’re not just trying to work out some kinks, it’s simply abject failure and incompetence.

No guarantees they’ll be back next year. Windows can close quick.

The dazzling, dreadful Demons have no plan

European coaches have always been better (Ange doesn’t count he was Australian-ised).

When Ange left, the improvement in the squad was immediate. Nearly pulled off a draw against France in the World Cup.

We suddenly had a hard edge. Under Ange we only got through on some Cahill magic against a war-torn Syria, drew with Thailand.

Who should the Socceroos take to Qatar?

1/3rd of the way into the World Cup and we’re still trying to figure out our side. This should have been settled months ago.

Langer still trying to find ways to pick his mates.

Too many holes.

Finch, now Warner, NCN, Zampa, undependable Stoinis replaced with undependable Mitch Marsh.

Turning into a disaster.

What went wrong for Australia against India and how do they fix it?

Winning is all is what we should aiming for. No need for negativity mate.

Matildas dusted, but not done

Is it more than a coincidence that the Matildas drop off while AFLW makes an ascent.

How good would we be if Erin Phillips picked up a soccer ball instead of a Sherrin when she was young?

Matildas dusted, but not done

They choked Sunday night. Probably cost them going to the next round.

Need a hard-nosed coach like Stajcic in there.

Can the Matildas shake off this rough patch of form?

Are they playing a friendly in Qatar in 2022?

Because there isn’t a chance that this iteration qualifies for the World Cup.

We scraped through by the skin of our teeth two years ago and we’re even worse now.

Who should the Socceroos take to Qatar?

It’s not comparable. That was an incident on a low speed chicane with an astroturf run off. Verstappen was totally in control. He attempted to make the apex and then proceeded to push Kimi onto the grass.

Vettel has made an error and just kept the momentum going while bouncing over the grass. He was just trying to keep it in a straight line so that he wouldn’t spin. There’s too much benefit of the doubt to give him a penalty.

Verstappen was penalised the same in Monaco for a dangerous release into a crowded pitlane and cost Bottas his race.

This was just play on.

Why Lewis Hamilton deserved victory in Canada

That’s utterly insane.

Very rarely anyone is on his tail because he’s had the best car for the 6th year running.

To much talk about officiating.

Umpires should be seen and not heard.

Eight simple rules (to change) to make the AFL better

Foxtel is great value for the sports fan. Kayo is even better value, but I hate using apps. Just to slow. I like to flick channels.

A lot of people are just penny pinchers.

Why the AFL is right to remove abusive spectators

You can’t compare being an umpire or player to a normal job.

If you jumper punched someone at your job you’d never work in that industry again. If you gave an underling a spray you would likely be hauled before Fair Work.

Every umpire knows what they are getting into anywhere in the world.

Umpires want to indulge in the theatrics and be part of the show when it suits them (Razor Ray the worst offender), but run to the principal’s office when crowds play their part in the show.

Why the AFL is right to remove abusive spectators

Is that true?

Why the AFL is right to remove abusive spectators

People won’t watch on TV either.

Look what the heavy-handedness created with the A-League. People just turned off when it was clear their business wasn’t appreciated by the league.

Why the AFL is right to remove abusive spectators

Don’t you worry I will be staying home.

Once you break the habit of going to the cricket, going to the footy, it’s easy to stop. Many other things to spend my money on.

Why the AFL is right to remove abusive spectators

My favourite thing is yelling abuse at a player and them giving a wry smile in no particular direction as if my words were water off a duck’s back.

It must be frustrating for them that they have no recourse and that my words are probably being repeated over and over in their head.

Why the AFL is right to remove abusive spectators

The AFL will do to footy what CA did to cricket with their heavy-handed tactics.

Alienated their core and now only 20k turn up to an ODI with 18k being Indian.

Why doesn’t the AFL do something about the ever increasing number of bashings happening at the footy, not someone in a crowd of 80k yelling at the top of his lungs.

If you are the sensitive snowflake type that is easily offended by someone yelling something you disagree with then stay home. The footy isn’t for you.

Why the AFL is right to remove abusive spectators

It is what it is. Did he spit or do anything physical? No just some words. Not even any swearing.

Why the AFL is right to remove abusive spectators

Vettel made a mistake, but Hamilton made a couple mistakes going into the hairpin and would have been punished for both of them if someone was on his tail.

Why Lewis Hamilton deserved victory in Canada

Yelling at umpires and the opposition, banter with opposition fans, is all part of the theatre of attending a game.

If you don’t like people in the crowd barracking, don’t be a footy player or professional umpire.

As a grown man how could you run to the principal’s office to dob someone in for calling you a bald flog in the heat of the moment. It’s pathetic really.

AFL is going down a track where they will alienate their core (if they haven’t done so already).

When it gets down to it, we can all live without AFL. We’ll find a dozen other more productive things to do with our Saturdays if the AFL keeps treating us with contempt.
