In H and Fish
Out SOS and Philp
These two better perform.

That's what i picked earlier in the week.

Makes the most sense. Strongest team possible.

Its a shame for Philp, but he got exposed to the speed of AFL and will be better for it.
No point picking him again if it is to the detriment of the team in doing so.
We no longer need to hand out games for the sake of it.

Anyone know why we've been switched from the MCG to Marvel?

Might have something to do with the MCG and the lights.

I think there is some rule that means the MCG can't be used more than x-amount of times for night games, or more than y-amount of hours per year. Might also be a certain amount of notice required for residnets.

Alternatively....
The AFL owns Etihad, can close the roof and pretty much do what they want.

It's an interesting position to take, is this genuinely related to COVID-19 security or it is about the politics and financial reward of hosting a sporting hub?

The optimist thinks one, the pessimist thinks the other!

The murkiness is the financial windfall that comes with an NRL or AFL style hub!

The alarm bells ring when you get situations analogous to "Albury is bad but Paramatta good!" :o

Easy fix. Send the QLD clubs to a different hub outside victoria. Send the Vic clubs there as well.

QLD wants to play hardball, thats fine, but we will not let it benefit their clubs.

Not matter what the AFL says,  that penalty against Betts was just wrong.   If anything,  he was checked - illegally too I might add.  We always play 21 against that mob.

What happened to the old "EAST WEST"

No players were allowed to be east or west of the man on the mark. Had to be behind him, not to the side.
So the ump should've told the kicker to go back and do it again AFTER he removed the bloke who blocked him.

Not sure on answers to those last 3 questions, but reading the top 50 or so comments on his twitter feed, the verdict from Blues fans is almost unanimous - almost all want him back.


Think about that logically for a second.

If anyone is following Gibbs' tweets, they obviously still take an interest in him. Thus, positive.
If anyone (think spanner lol) is happy to see the back of him, they will not have anything to do with Gibbs or his twitter account. So no negative responses.

Any talk of Weitering or Simpson being back line generals or holding the back line together are premature at best, erroneous at worst. The difference Docherty makes to that back 6 could be spotted from the moon. Those bloody knees cost Bolton his job.

Yes and no......and no.

Weitering and Simpson have both been in (are in) the leadership group and do well down back.
Of course the addition of Docherty adds another layer to it.
Boltons job (not that you bring him up in every post) was his to lose.....and he lost it. Remember i was in his corner right up until the week before he was sacked. It was inevitable.

Worst 50 I can remember. Cannot even figure out why it was given...

I half turned away from the TV as it happened and thought i missed something.

Then i saw the replay....and thought I (or the umpire) must've had a lobotomy.

Absolutely no idea what that was for......unless Eddie told the umpire to F*** off or something.....which i highly doubt.
