Re: Victoria’s 2nd Covid19 Wave?

Yep. This is doing the rounds... Before we get too hung up on blaming the state govt, or the federal govt, or China for our covid situation let’s review some facts : 1. We had to bring in mandatory quarantining in hotels, because we couldn’t trust people to stay home after returning from overseas. 2...

Re: Perspective

We've beaten one team in the Top 8. Yes. But I think we know our perspective over the years. We’ve seen our ability to beat eventual premiers while losing to eventual wooden spooners. Then when we make the finals, we get absolutely spanked. I expect nothing much will change until it changes. I can ...

Re: Round 5 v Northern Tin Rattlers

Compare Shiels to Cotchin on Shiel. What did Cotchin get for that bump?

Re: Round 5 v Northern Tin Rattlers

Pretty good effort tonight. I know Norf had their own accuracy problems, but surely if we'd kicked a few of the goals we should have, it would have been a comfortable win. Good team effort, everyone chipped in. Except maybe McKernan. If he wasn't giving frees away, he was standing there appealing f...

Re: c*** nominations

Agree with all you said Ben. And I could rant for a whole page or more with more examples. But the first thing I've learnt through all this, is that you can't change the opinions of those causing the problems and blaming the Premier. So the only extra thing I'll add here is this......Murdoch media....

Re: Round 5 v Northern Tin Rattlers

I’m liking our new style or ‘system’ as they say. Pressure aplenty. This is the Truck and Cara show. Woosha is just there to do pressers. Zaharakis decides to get involved in 2020. Played well tonight. Very well. How good Ridley!? He’s going to be a ripping defender for a long time. Saad and his pre...

Re: c*** nominations

While the hotel quarantine has been abysmal, there are a few things I want to say about Dan Andrews and the situation here in Victoria. 1. Some people in this State are f****** imbeciles. From protesters, to hoarders, to f****** idiots who couldn't give a shit and carry on like nothing is wrong. Th...

FFS - they have kept Zaha and Laverde but dropped Redman

Well, they must be counting on the one goal between the two of them to be the winner

Playing Conor in the forward line instead of Both of them would be a massive uptick
On a positive note - no Bellchambers 😎

Great footage!

Some of the passages of play were pretty darn good. Pity there isn’t much quality vids of the stars back in the day. Would be awesome to see their highlight packages.

Re: Round 5 v Northern Tin Rattlers

Laverde should be given his marching orders. The bloke simply lacks the skills to play AFL footy. He was beaten in almost every contest he participated in, almost cost us two goals through poor delivery, is a very poor mark and hopelessly innacurate. He has had every chance to prove himself and has...

Re: Round 4...vs Collingwood

Umpires almost invented ways of influencing this match too. This time, the AFL admitted the Snelling decision was incorrect :shock: easy to admit that when we won the game by more then a goal, did they comment on the throw? There is no way they give the free for a dangerous tackle or don't give the...
