Not sure about WC being included in this group. Have lacked the year in year out consistency of the others. Your comment about the Tigers is stating the obvious.

AFL open to Christmas grand final

Just like you’ve taken the 5 flags under the ridiculous challenge system of the 1920s and 30s. Collingwood really should be stripped of these and they be given back to their rightful owners. Richmond would lose one flag under these circumstances, I’m fine with that. But I digress. An 11 game season wouldn’t be the lottery you suggest. I reckon it would be less likely to see a premier come from left field unless the draw was well and truly rigged. Even then, still unlikely. Naaaah, 11 games doesn’t constitute a season.

Herman? Munster?

Both the AFL and NRL must make serious cuts to clubs

Every dog has its day, Cox has had his. And we all know if it’s a GF, Collingwood pretty likely won’t win regardless of who the opposition is, certainly if it’s the Tiges. On a more serious note I’d prefer to see the season wiped rather than some contrived fixture designed simply to get a result. If this happens, with smaller lists likely next year, retirements will be a huge issue at some clubs. Pies could lose a few, Tigers not so much I wouldn’t think. WC may suffer. Cats big time. Could be an interesting landscape next year. In this scenario the Giants are in the box seat with the Tiges close behind.

Yeah, fair enough. Also a good opportunity for the Tiges to prove we’ll play anywhere any time . . . and still win!

He’s not the boot lace of a genuine mid-fielder I might add!

Jake adds a string to his bow

Yet he burnt the dual Brownlow medallist and kicked a goal in the second and a very important goal in the 4th. Yeah that’s ineffectual! Come on, Don. I’m not a Stringer fan but in a low scoring contest that is making an impact.

Lol. Boys will be boys. Seriously flawed swing though.

Jaidyn Stephenson's bizarre golf trick shot will make you glad you're not his mate

Absolutely was.

Conspiracy theory? Really?

Ahhhh, yes. Barrie Robran A great player to be sure. Would’ve looked fantastic in a Tiger strip. That Leigh Matthews is held in such high esteem is just mind bogglingly off. A real travesty.

Jack Riewoldt responds to Leigh Matthews' savage claim he's 'lost respect' for players in pay dispute

Can understand both sides of the argument, it will be sorted in time. Find it a bit rich though when ‘Lethal’ says he’s ‘losing respect’ for players. Lost respect for this thug decades ago regardless of how good he was. The Bruns incident should have seen him run out of football forever. He should stick to commenting on football not taking the high moral ground.

I personally felt this was his last realistic chance this year. May still happen with a reduced season. The shorter quarters should suit their style. Beyond this year his chances will diminish.

Patrick Dangerfield: Can Superman make it to a grand final?

It’s certainly in the players’ best interests to maintain fitness, for both their physical and mental well being. The average Joe Blow should be doing it to some extent, do you want them paid extra for doing it?

AFL reeling from job cuts

Gil’s work load has increased dramatically and probs will continue to do so. The Players? I think you’re being too personal which is clouding your logic.

AFL reeling from job cuts

So Sydney’s performance was way better than Geelong’s? West Coast way better than Richmond? Keeping in mind Melbourne are in the cellar below Carlton. The mind boggles.

Good to see someone else ‘gets it’. And you, of all people! Lol. Richmond, Collingwood, Giants, Geelong all a step ahead of the field.

Yep. Go hard. Start prosecuting fools who ignore the restrictions. Shame on them.

AFL season suspended due to coronavirus

Yeah, well . . .

AFL season suspended due to coronavirus

Most games have been like AFLX but with even less soul. While not a huge fan of ‘possession football’ I think Collingwood and Geelong are being gifted an opportunity to pinch a flag.

Let's be grateful that we have Gill

Lol.

Western Bulldogs vs Collingwood: Friday night forecast

Gotta agree with all that. Nothing more than another pre-season game minus the spectators.

Richmond open season with eerie win

Just another pre-season game. Won’t get ‘real’ till the crowds return. All clubs can do is bank wins. 1 and zip, done, move on.

Richmond open season with eerie win

Fair call.

AFL officially green-lights Round 1 despite coronavirus concerns

Yeah, righto Don. But do they even know where the goals are?
