It’s not just the Richmond game. The cart was out in the Crows-Suns game last week and they didn’t stop the game. The ball was going over the heads of trainers in the forward 50 in the Power-Suns game this week and they still didn’t stop it.

Six Points: The dangerous problem the AFL must fix now, and is there a better solution than red cards?

I’m so angry at those umpires. I was coached that our primary function is to keep the players safe. Not stopping the play when there are trainers and stretchers and medical staff dealing with a player down and the ball is going over their heads makes it clear that the league doesn’t care about player safety anywhere near enough. Otherwise those umpires would have known (because they’d have been coached) to stop the game.

Yeah that’s a really bad violation of basic safety. It’s like last week when they had the cart out for Will Powell but they still allowed play to go and for Walker to have a shot. I don’t know what they’ve been coached to do but it’s quite sickening

The AFL should send off players for violent actions that take a player out

Every other grade of the sport has it. If umpires in local footy have to have the ability to determine when to card a player, I don’t see why the professionals can’t do it.

Should have given it to a fan. I’m sure they’d have loved a memento

So if I was accused of something I didn’t do, I wouldn’t then next opportunity do exactly what would constitute the crime I was accused of if anyone in the room decided to make a complaint.

And you remember incorrectly, he plead guilty to second-degree harrassment so the DA would drop the more serious charge.

I think we should have had a national league start up instead of had the VFL expand nationally.

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 15

I’m surprised no one is tipping the Lions but someone is tipping the Giants.

Considering how badly I’m doing this year I’m expecting a solid 2 from this round of coin tosses.

So why didn’t that make the cut? De Goey was accused of sexual harrassment, got off, and then was filmed doing something not dissimilar. That suggests he’s learnt nothing from his experiences. He’s an adult. Needs to learn some responsibility for his actions.

I have to wonder why in an article about how you’re upset about the media’s “bullying”, you mainly focus on the 26-year old doing something which could be considered sexual harrassment. You tangentially refer to the 22-year old caught doing an illicit substance but only to contrast the fact that he wasn’t “bullied” because he was contrite while Jordan was standoffish. You don’t mention at all the 19-year old regularly targetted for not being mature enough on the field and talked about leaving his present club in Jason Horne-Francis.

You need to work on your conservative trolling. You sound about as sincere as an AI

Not on an aeroplane. A metal tube with recycled air and close contact with dozens of strangers isn’t a safer place then driving down to the Mornington or something.

Six Points: Best season in decades takes another twist, and Pies must do something - anything - about De Goey

It baffles me that they allow especially since there are still tens of thousands of COVID cases every day. If he gets/got sick overseas it would have been quite the foolish mistake

The 6-6-6 rule is terrible at local level though. Should have been made a pro-level rule only

But he literally wasn’t. Other English sailors had been here first. Plus the colonisation didn’t happen until after his death. He’s a very minor part of English-Australian history

I don’t understand this argument that because it was designed to appeal to children that means it’s bad. Sports are kinda childish; that’s part of the fun. After a week of being an adult while working you spend the weekend being a bit childish by playing and watching games.

It’s time to finally scrap the name ‘Socceroos’

Damn. If only you said “woke” or “commies” I would have got bingo

'Relentless pursuit and persecution': De Goey's extraordinary response to 'uneducated' media over Bali video

According to psephologist Kevin Bonham, the highest rate for following the HTV for any party in the Tasmanian Senate count was less than 10% of that party’s vote. That suggests a significant majority of people preference how they choose, not the party.

So you mean the politician couldn’t convince the voters to re-elect him? That seems like electoral politics working as normal.

So why name a trophy after him? He wasn’t the first European or even English captain to land a ship here. Seems like renaming a trophy so it’s actually something to do with the sport being played is more sensible then ever naming it after some random sailor.

Can you imagine if they played a non-Victorian team in the Grand Final? The difference in travel would be close to a round the world trip

I remember hearing that one of the earliest surviving texts in human history is a complaint that things aren’t as good as they used to be. I’m sure there were people complaining just so when you were kicking the ball in the backyard, Les.

I think this should have been two pieces: one talking about how you enjoyed the game when you were younger; the other about your problems with the current game. Linking them into one piece turns it into another “things were better back in my day” spiel.

The AFL is proof that you can have too much of a good thing
