I love how mad Essendon fans are getting over the eSports team. So many "this is why we can't win premierships anymore, we spend all our time on computer games!" and when Raz played a game against a pro there were lots of "great strat by the club, playing games rather than being out on the park practicing goal kicking". How do people not stop to think "ok I'm sure players are allowed to have some down time and don't train 24/7, and we haven't won a flag in 18 years, and the esports team has been around for 6 months, so it's probably not the reason we haven't been winning flags".


Also, the esports logo looks better than our main logo

Colin Sylvia has pleased guilty to stealing credit card information which he used to pay for two brothel sessions, pornography and a $4k deposit into a sports betting account

He was in the local paper the other day and apparently he is now coaching one of the country teams around Mildura. Can't wait to see how far south that goes, not sure if he is player coach or just coach.

"Sylvia looking for a clean start after turbulent AFL career".

From the article (bolding mine). AFL players can literally kill someone and people won't care so long as they can "get the W" huh.


"The knowledge of the game and experience he can provide for 2018 at the Roos will be next level," Meringur coach Toby Quirk-Meeks said in a statement on the club's Facebook page.

I've been told Kurt Tippett will be gone next week. Supposedly the official reason will be that his body is hosed but it's really because he's a lazy fuckhead and Longmire hates him.

And if I'm gonna cry, I don't need your shoulder.

Given he is contracted for 2018, do the swans still pay him, even though he is not playing?

i thought if you retire then you arent entitled to the full amount of your remaining contract? or maybe it depends on the terms of each contract

Sure, but it depends on whether you actually retire or the club just says you have, and Tippett doesn't strike me as the kind of guy who'd forgo 3 years of free money for the good of the team
