This scoreline probably flatters the Blues a bit. Tigers have had way more shots at goal (15 more atm) and the Blues have got 4 goals from 50m penalties.

Also re: AFLW Bulldogs, they should ban her even longer for that pathetic case against the tribunal.

gently caress you she should be playing and the system didn’t allow for any case to be brought to get her off after the initial hearing. The appeals process is a joke, the rules are a joke and the aflw mrp system as a whole is a huge joke.

Yeah I was watching it through my VPN to avoid ads but it was really bad tonight so I switched to free to air. It was working fine in HD until two mins before the game, which is when thousands more people logged in I suppose.

Yeah I ran into that watching it live, but found rewinding a few minutes and letting it buffer to be an okay fix.

Richmond got two goals from 50s and like 5 from free kicks too.

Yes all the 50s were weak, it happens every year. The umpires enforce the rules for the Carlton v Richmond opener and then relax the rest of the season because all the players have seen them enforce specific rules.


Good effort by the blues, ran out of legs at the end and with Kennedy on the bench and kreuzer basically out of the game for the last 40 minutes we just failed in the centre, not too bad to only lose by 25 against the premiers. Richmond unable to put us away until the last quarter looks bad for them.

I’ll try that next time it goes wrong. It is always ok for replays but last year I found it very hit and miss for live games. Better than paying for Foxtel though.

Not just a few. Only Richmond and Sydney will use the new recordings, all other clubs have said they will stick to the proper themesongs.

I’m watching on delay, at half time now, very entertaining game but Carlton are getting absolutely hosed by “no genuine attempt calls” they’ve been pinged three times already in what were at best 50/50 calls, while Richmond have managed to escape very similar situations at least three times without a whistle

It happens when your AA defender is out for the season with an ACL. But even so, Liam Jones wasn't upto scratch tonight, hopefully he'll be ready over the next few weeks. Also Weitering was pretty poor tonight as well, not sure why but he just wans't in it.

But Kade Simpson had a stellar game, apart from giving away a 50m penalty he ended up with one disposal less than Cripps, although that also means the ball is in richmonds 50 a lot of the time, but he did push up the ground a lot too. Can't wait for his 300th game and I hope he plays next season.

Maybe they should have actually argued a case at the initial hearing instead of appealing to feels about Bob. This is a mess entirely of the dogs own making.

Tuned into sen for 15 mins this arvo because the abc was promoting some religious thing, andy maher said the situation is odd but can see the point of their argument being a form of discrimination, why not pay the women more so they too can be fined; when required, instead of missing games which is a huge penalty in the aflw with a 1 week ban being equal to a 3 week ban for the men.

But yeah lol at the dogs bringing in new evidence in the appeal and not in the main mrp hearing.

Yep. Or have the fines scales to reflect the pay differential. Sure the fine may end up being like $5 but:

I don't really see how the AFL can say it's not discrimination.

Did anyone mention that Paddy Ryder was the victim of a home invasion?

Or that he and his brother scared the 3 guys off, had a car chase with them before the crims crashed and they citizens arrested 1 of them (the other two ran off)?

Pretty good prep for round 1 imo.

The excellent radio arm of it is being spun off into its own thing, which should be pretty great for the upcoming VFLW season.
