It’s also much easier to get suspended at the AFL than the club level

Monster Tribunal night confirmed as Giants challenge Greene, Hogan bans, Eagles appeal star's dangerous tackle

Precedent? In this league? That doesn’t seem to hold any water

Really don’t see how Jesse should get a suspension for that. Should be challenged and downgraded

Do they pay those anymore? I feel like push in the back free kicks are a lot lower than where they were like 5 years ago

We’re also missing Coniglio and he’s been one of our best midfielders so far this year.

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions, Round 6: Can the Bulldogs bounce back after a week of scrutiny?

Considering they got rid of the top 5 in 1990, I don’t know that there would have been that many people who remembered how that worked.

Luke Beveridge is on borrowed time - he's an inconsistent coach who gets inconsistent results

I don’t like that you’re all tipping the Giants. That’s a surefire sign of an upset

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions, Round 6: Can the Bulldogs bounce back after a week of scrutiny?

See I’m of the opinion that the Giants squad was a bit overrated during that time. Look at how many players of that era left and had success elsewhere.

Buckley missed four years of finals before the Pies 2018 run. A bit different.

And you say that’s your point but you didn’t say when you would have sacked him as head of the club.

But you don’t know if it’s a Hardwick era funk or not until after the fact. If Richmond had sacked him after 2016 that would have been a perfectly reasonable choice for everything people knew.

I’m really curious as to when people think Leon Cameron should have been fired. After his first two years the Giants went top 4, top 4, top 6, runners up, missed finals, top 6, missed finals and fired.

The only year you could argue was reasonable time to fire him was 2020 and that was just a weird year. Plus that was right when the argument was that coaches were moved on too quickly because look at Damien Hardwick he missed finals, got another chance and then won 3 premierships.

No he was put on trial for heresy for advocating for the heliocentric Copernican model instead of the Ptolemaic model. Both models already used a global Earth.

Social media trolling of our sportspeople has its newest victim - but Sonja Hood won't be the last unless we take a stand

The history nerd in me is compelled to say: Eratosthenes calculated the circumference of the Earth over 2000 years ago. Galileo wasn’t born 800 years ago.

I’m waiting for the echoes to appear

Well he’s got a bloody right to say

AFL News: Players Association slams 'double standards' in Finlayson ban, Cats to weigh up Thomas lifeline

Yeah it’s what I expected. Could have been a bit harsher but considering the stuff they let slide it’s expected.

'Totally unacceptable': AFL bans Port star for 'unprompted and highly offensive' homophobic slur

Yeah it’s a eh. Not surprised considering the experiences I had umpiring

Walker kicked more of their goals proportionally than almost any other key forward did for any other team. That over reliance on one player is always risky, especially when that player is 34. Barring a huge step-up from some unheralded players, the Crows might need to bottom out entirely

'Suffering from paralysis-by-analysis': Adelaide Crows have gone from box office sensation to under-performing turkeys

He’ll probably get 3-4 weeks. I’d be amazed if they came down as hard on him as they did on Walker

AFL News: Calls for Finlayson to cop ban for 'unacceptable' homophobic slur, Port coaching change on the way

From the article above: “It is understood an umpire’s microphone picked up the f—-t insult, which was heard by multiple players”. As a queer person I can pretty easily deduce what slur matches those letters.

I’d also say that Finlayson’s slur is much worse than Clarkson’s so deserves more punishment

Different standards of evidence. In civil court it’s just more likely than not, criminal is beyond all reasonable doubt.

Whether NRL celebrates Jennings' milestone or not is irrelevant, the real issue is should he have been allowed back?
