50m Penalty can also be given for demeanor I believe, you dont actually have to use bad language, so the tone of your enquiry
can see you with a penalty. Once again interpretation/grey areas and that means inconsistency....
On another matter...How does Dusty get away with belting blokes every week, gets reported and gets off with a silly fine..the whole system needs an overhaul especially the MR/tribunal stuff.

A dickhead in authority often demands an inappropriate level of respect that dickheads are just not worthy of. Just makes them look like an even bigger dickhead.

The Federal gov puts over $12Bpa of taxpayer money into private aged care. We must demand much tougher oversight of how well this money is being used to provide the essential services. Sounds to me that there are a lot of piggy snouts in the trough! The gov is still responsible even if service provision.has been outsourced to for profit companies .

I think we have both a mental and physical issue at the moment. We appear to run out of legs a bit after our initial onslaught in games and this causes a loss of concentration and focus due to that fatigue. I suspect it is a result of not knowing how to control the pace of a game - when to let rip and and when to shut up shop for a while. May reflect a lack of on field nous/leadership which we have discussed before. If we could control the pace of games better I think we would generally perform better. Teams see us tiring and then hit us atm.

My lunch place of choice, especially on Fridays. was Pinnochio's Pizza in Toorak Rd. Used to work in that area going back 20 years or so. There was a good bottle shop next door so a reasonable bottle of red and a Mexicana was a great lunch.

SPS no doubt from time to time demonstrates that he is a very skilled player and can sometimes pull out a sublime disposal to a team mate in the clear. However, for the type of player he is, imo he just doesn't do that anywhere near often enough and as a result his impact on games is modest, i.e he has not yet shown himself to be capable of greatly influencing, at least in a positive way, the outcomes of games. May be it's because of the role he is currently playing. I would like to see him in a more "mission critical" role where he might have a much bigger impact in winning games and not floating around in defence and producing mostly non penetrating/damaging disposals from there.
