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

eh, pends on the game really - if you're into the game I can see how it's fun. I can't get excited about a LoL team because I don't like LoL. But I love PUBG and found myself getting sucked into a PUBG esports team unexpectedly. Either way, I don't get the argument that some people have that an esports team is somehow going to = bad on-field performance.

Periphery nailed it with saying that the attacking footy just doesn't feel earned. It feels like an NBA all star game where its just all scoring and no defense. For similar reasons too, All Star game has players not wanting to get injured, not wanting to put real pressure on because the result doesn't matter. You get ridiculous scores you'd never get in a regular NBA game and its not in a "wow that is so cool they managed to score so much!" kind of way because the scoring doesn't feel earned when there is no real defense being offered. Here its that, but also because the result doesn't matter. So how can you really buy into it?

Surely if the AFL wanted to make this mean *something* theyíd have an extra night of finals games next week. Rather than have 3 grand finals, the top 2 teams from each night (eg Adelaide and Geelong from last night) play the following week to a single grand final?

Speaking of competition, it's FANTASY FOOTBALL TIME

The Goon Golden Spoon Draft League has been carried over, but teams need to rejoin, with the draft currently set to 6pm Saturday March 17, but that's movable.

Supercoach invite link here, currently a 10 team league.

Definitely in for UF! although canít do a March 17th draft

I mean, if Stringer is funneling all of his compulsions to act out and be a fuckwit into simply continuing to make himself look more and more a fuckwit, then I can probably get on board with it.

I guess it means I donít have to watch someone like Daniher line up 50m out directly in front and put it dead Center through the middle before the game....then 10mins into the first quarter he has a shot from the exact same spot, filling me with hope, only to see it go out on the full.

The Footy Show isn't about well thought out football opinions though. It hasn't been for a long time.

And I think one of the reasons they won't ever let it die, is to let it die is to admit defeat. To admit that Newman and McGuires brand of blokey matey misogyny and buffoonery has had it's day. The people at Channel 9, (and Eddie and Sam in particular), will never want to admit that until the bitter end. So when it does die, (becauase of lack of ratings = lack of profitability), the few people/mouthbreathers left watching will blame PC culture and the bloody gay muslim foreign reffo sheilas for killing it, when it has been dead and irrellevant for at least 4-5 years.

Actually I think you'll find the reason for the low ratings is Rebecca Maddern, at least that's according to facebook comments on footy show articles...

Its really grasping at straws that they think that is the reason. I hope Mddern moves on from the show soon to do something better and give these fuckwads less and less excuses to blame its failure on.

Reminder that the Goon Golden Spoon draft is set for Saturday 17 March 2018 at 6:00 PM (AEDT) because nobody suggested a better time. If you can't be there, don't forget to set your draft order so you don't get robofucked. Also, we're still at 7 teams, we can do better than that. New goons, foreign and domestic, who want to follow along with our demented sport this year, feel free to join in, fantasy isn't nearly as hard as it looks, and half the scoring ends up being lucky choices of fringe players who come good, and players who don't get injured.

Goon Silver Spoon still only has 5 teams, but I guess people are sick of the Hun sticking more and more functionality behind the paywall, yeah?

I definitely can't make it on the 17th, can do most other nights. I tried robodraft once before but it totally didn't work, so not sure how to do it properly as I'm pretty sure I set it up properly

I'd be more sympathetic if Merrett hadn't just spent 30 seconds ignoring the ball on the ground so he could mouth off extensively about the tackle he just completed.

Also, play wasn't reckless, it was a legit bump that hit the shoulder, Merrett knocked himself out on the turf.
