Deflect as much as you want CM that was an ordinary look telling his own team mate to take a hike when told to calm down mate.

Posted that before the act.. I agree.


Apologies mate!

I don't know, picked Freo in footy tips, need the to win to make up one on the leader, but not confident. The standard of the game is horrid!

In other game, Callum Sinclair with five goals, putting the final nail in Tippett's coffin?

Tipett more than capable of putting the final nail in his own coffin.

Ross Lyon continues to show how not to coach or display anything that closely resembles a game plan that might actually deliver any success.

Just get on and play the game and stop trying to be politically correct for a minority


Wouldn't people who play and watch Aussie Rules in this country be a minority too if you look at the whole population?

Why not try and make the game as inclusive for everybody and help grow the game.



You dinosaur.


Let's see 4 major states play the game plus a heavy involvement in QLD, NSW & NT plus volunteers and spectators, I would say we are far from the minority and would be well over 50% of the nation. We can grow the game without having to bow to minorities and their left wing politically correct agendas.

It is a game of football not a political arena. If so when are are we going to get "White Male Heterosexual with wife and kids round" because we are the majority !!!!!


Didn't hear you complaining about

Indigenous round
Country round
ALS round
Maddie's match
Whatever hawthorn did when they wore their pink Guernsey

All of which are minorities and would be less people than the gay community.

Watching the replay of the Dee's v Power game this morning, Boak still has it. His game and running was exceptional. Just needs to be a little more selfish as he could have kicked 6 goals. Should play more midfield Thought he was older than 28.

Interesting umpiring

Joe Atley not quite up to it as yet but will be a good player in a couple of years.

Robbie Gray just play the game and stop whining.

Melbourne looked stuffed but somehow hung on, Darwin game might have taken a bit out of them

Good win last night. McVeigh has been very good. Sinclair had his best game. Interesting what happens when Reid is ready to go again. Heeney shouldn't even be sighted for his tackle but probably will.

I agree with most of that - Robbie has every right to complain about delivery yesterday from team mates - it was atrocious. As for no protection from umpires, he should be used to that by now, but he has a fair point, IMO.
If you don’t like my words, don’t listen. If you don’t like my appearance, don’t look. If you don’t like my actions, turn your head; It’s as simple as that.

Does himself no favours by constantly throwing his arms out and yelling at the umpire.

He did get a poor kick from his team mate and number 30 took the mark, instead of put pressure on he had a whinge and number 30 kicked a goal. Not a good look

Is a great player when fully focused

What percentage of our population live in rural or country areas...less than 1.6% apparently.

I just read it as Forth Estate making the point that not every round needs a theme to which I 100% agree.
