I just turned the tv on... why are the umpires wearing yellow on their backs when Richmond is playing in yellow? Seriously how difficult to organise is shirt colouring?

Well done, you've divided the stats into two categories, reaffirming what we already knew about home advantage, neither of which explain the reasons the frees were given for - like head high tackles, ruck infringements, 50m penalties, marking infringements, out of bounds kicks etc. When a team like the Eagles puts forward pressure on, it leads to mistakes. We also happen to have been the best Ruck side in the comp for a long time, of which players CONSTANTLY got pinged against NicNat/Cox et al. - and we've categorically been a better side than half the competition for over a decade. So until someone actually gives us a break down of what the frees are given for, this is a moot point because the entire competition uses the same loving umpires.

Actually its because West Coast are cheats and the umpires are terrified of their deranged and unstable fan base

If you saw Atlas, the giant who holds the world on his shoulders, if you saw that he stood, blood running down his chest, his knees buckling, and the greater his effort the heavier the world bore down upon his shoulders - What would you tell him?

Shuey isn't even in the top 3 this year! Progress!

Did Wingard play midfield before or has he always been a forward for Port? I seem to remember him running the middle at some point..

e: also gently caress Ultimate Footy, it changed my team for the following week even though I left it as is from round 10.

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.

Checked out the 3 quarter time score of GWS vs GCS and decided that was enough for me.
