Fair or not that score line is just awful. I really want the womenís comp to be successful but at the moment people are going along when itís free. How long will be people tolerate paying for a game like that though?

Why is his sitter being brought into it? Like not even in a way that gets him off the hook, he wanted out way before that. His narrative was never pity me and my family it was ďIve got my money and Iím footy royalty now do what the gently caress I say toĒ and Gold Coast rightfully told him to gently caress off.

I have no pity for him at all. He knew what he was doing when he moved to GC and he knew what he was doing when he extended. Priorities change etc but heís a big boy getting paid a fuckload of money. He doesnít need white knighters defending his honour.

Carey is so emblematic of the AFL community being laughable with its women outreach. Donít disrespect women, oh unless you can kick a ton of goals mate, then glass a woman and assault a cop and gently caress your teammates wife and assault a woman in Melbourne sheíll be right mate hahaha

Just remembered that Adelaide was by far the best team last year and Richmond rolled downhill into a premiership on the back of two home finals they didn't earn and now Adelaide's window is over and Eddie Betts will never play in a premiership

Adelaide fans will never stop being funny. It was amazing walking down swan street as a tigers supporter last year after the game. Great job on playing well in every game except the one that counted though

I don't think we're very funny

Outside of a few loudmouths, most of the Crows fans I've seen are pretty accepting that they had a good season, blew it in the last game against a team that clearly deserved to win, and have now fallen well off the pace in 2018. From what I've seen with us it's less hysteria and more just grim acceptance.

Read what I quoted / your conspiracy theorist team mates in this thread for who Iím mainly talking about.

Real talk I actually donít mind the crows mainly because itís so cute how much crows fans care about port Adelaide and how little victorians get that, and itís just great. I have no idea whatís happened to you guys this year though :/

Watching afl 360 from last night with Riewoldt and Lewis and they used the word rascal. Both of them pronounced the first syllable with a short "a" rather than a longer "rah-scal" pronunciation.

I never really listen to commentary or watch on telly until recently and Carey coming back kinda just passed me by. It infuriates me.

The community hasn't forgiven him, most people think he's a poo poo bloke, a handful of media companies have forgiven him, and a handful of old boys club other commentators don't even admit he needed forgiving because they don't want their memories of his playing days tarnished. The community would have to boycott watching the football to do anything about it, because there's no way to get around it.

Yeah youíre right. Just poo poo. Like I know this is naive as anything but the AFL company aside the community has seen things like the AFLW, indigenous round, the start of a pride round, white ribbon etc. sport can be such a positive influence in the community and ďhah hah AFLĒ aside it can still be quite a community focused game (or at least it feels like it in Victoria)

There is a reason we have poo poo attendance recently. I'll let you guess why.

Carlton have a massive tv only fanbase though, probably the Italian faction being stingy with money, won't pay to go to the game anymore since we don't play at princes park and just tune in when possible.

Unless youíre Italian that is a problematic statement

I don't think any more than 8 is applicable. It's already the highest laid suspension outside of a complete ban. This was likely an accidental punch, where as Barry Hall was notorious (and still is) for punching people in the head.

I thought it was going to be 7 weeks, so it seems right. I also don't recall Barry getting this much scrutiny from the media when he punches people.

Ban the dumb punching poo poo.

Perhaps it's because he's a flopping loving fish who knows nothing but milking frees you utter loving idiot?

Top of the league with a homestand Home and Away season - "We get so hard done by here at Richmond"

I hope they lose every single final from here on out and finish 9th for eternity, and all the melting memberships cause Punt Rd to burn down.

The salt is delicious. Richmond are bottom on getting frees and top on them being paid against. I was at the game last night and some Essendon fan screamed about the umps paying a free to Richmond literally while the scoreboard showed Essendon on 28 and Richmond on 14.

And yeah finals will be hard. Hopefully weíll win but once you get to eliminations itís anyoneís game. But ďtigers are advantaged at the MCGĒ is such a copout to how well weíve been playing. And especially since half the other teams in Melbourne have their home at the same loving ground, any team can play well there as they should try to, it hosts the most games in the sport.

to be fair though, you have only been playing well at the MCG, so it seems like your significant advantage is a legit topic for discussion

code:
	Crows	Adelaide Oval		Loss 82-118
	North	Etihad Stadium		Win 82-72
	Eagles	Optus Stadium		Loss 83-130
	Power	Adelaide Oval		Loss 58-72
	Swans	Etihad Stadium		Win 93-67
	Giants	Spotless Stadium	Loss 77-79
	Saints	Etihad Stadium		Win 111-57	
	Suns	Metricon Stadium	Win 125-51
You've obviously set up a gameplan that is focused around the MCG, and you're able to do so because you play there 14 times during the H&A season, if you do well enough at those you'll play the lead-up finals there, and you're guaranteed to play the grand final there.

It's not something that other MCG tenant clubs have any cause to whinge about because they have exactly the same opportunity (it's maybe my biggest criticism of Goodwin), but it absolutely gives you an advantage over docklands clubs or non-victorian teams. They have to have an MCG gameplan in their back pocket as well as a gameplan that actually gets them to their grand final, MCG tenant clubs can use the same plan to get them to the grand final and win it.

Except we won at etihad every time this year too? We lost two Adelaide and port and the eagles, and lost against GWS by two points.

If the MCG was such a benefit what explains Richmond from the 1980s- mid 2017??

Anyway I donít care, I guess having a premiership and then one good season (letís see how long it lasts for us) means we are stop horrible behemoth of a club that should be stopped

It does suck that we are basically poaching a great player from a poo poo team, like salary caps mean that any one team canít be too crazy with this however it certainly can mean a bunch of the lower teams are kept down and the higher teams stay up. I get the compensation stuff but what can be done about this? Or is it just the players association wonít do anything that restricts the ability of players to move where they want?
