I demand to be taken seriously





So when can we stop handing the season opener to Carlton? Why can't we open up the season with a good game?

Huge Internet Celebrity!

Surely Carlton are getting sick of it too. Since they started opening every seeing with a Thursday Carlton vs Richmond match in 2015, Carlton have lost every single one of them by an average of 5 or so goals.

I mean, Richmond were rubbish for a few years too. Sadly they got okay.


A reminder that Carlton got Jack Martin for free (draft wise) and then paid him a frontloaded contract which has now been reduced by 20%.

What a steal, thank you Stephen Silvagni.

Let me start off with a basket of chips. Then move on to the pollo asado taco.

Tonight really only seemed strange to me in the first quarter and then I felt like I adjusted to it pretty quickly. In the heat of play when the camera is zoomed in on the ground and players it didn't really feel all that much different.

Hey guys, remember that awesome thing you went to on the weekend you can talk to your friends and family about? Oh wait that was cancelled. But its okay theres.. oh no thats cancelled as well.

There is just about nothing loving going on for anyone to really look forward to for potentially months, stop loving bitching about the footy being a bit different and be loving grateful we have even this distraction from the virus poo poo.

You wont be saying this when North is beating the Saints by 100 points on Sunday! (I agree with you)

Roof at docklands to remain open so as to ensure games are considered outdoor events and not indoor events. Otherwise they'd be cancelled for exceeding the 100 people gathering limit (and it sounds like the 100 limit will be reduced to 40-50 this weekend by the gov too).

Wet weather footy at docklands this season!

Itís what I said before: stop it now, delay the start of the season, and reassess in another few weeks. Take the hit now along with the rest of society to get things back to ďnormalĒ quicker.

The soccer, baseball, basketball, everything was suspended for two weeks in Japan. Life slowed to a crawl and there wasnít sports to watch. But it appears things are getting back to normal, and the basketball at least has re-started, and it seems like baseball games are starting today too.

Play the long game. the alternative is one of the players or coaches testing positive and having to yank the handbrake on the full season immediately.

The advice theyíve received from doctors is that they are no more likely to get the virus playing a round like this than sitting at home with their families anyway.

Most of Australia hasnít stopped, I donít know if youíve noticed. Iím afraid you might have a terminal case of Too Online.

I donít mean that as a jab, despite how it read. This is a serious problem and itís going to be a hosed up year or so but this forum in particular is working itself into a frenzy that isnít helping a lot of peopleís mental health. Try to relax and enjoy the footy, which is one of the few pleasures weíll get this year probably. If you canít do that, log the gently caress off.

That sounds like awful advice to me, who paid these docs off.

Just seems like basic math that being around 1-4 family members makes you safer than being around 60+ players, assistants, Richo etc. in a close contact capacity.

The man was stunningly well dressed. He had a smart looking jacket, and a really neat looking cape, the lining of which was shimmering and sparkling in more than Oriental splendour, which is a great deal of splendour indeed, just ask Kipling.



Huh, my local comp was advised that they would be closed for safety, but for some reason this national comp which makes money for a bunch of people is different. I wonder what's different between the two comps that magically makes it safe for one to go on, but not the other. Think, Chairchucker, think, everyone's depending on you!

So it is, in fact, not safe and they're lying about it because of money? Cool glad we're on the same page.

They need to pump home ground focussed music like at the basketball, and have a hype man on the mic over the PA
