Fyfe just kept trying to fend off, getting tackled, getting a second tackler, and then either throwing it, dropping it, or getting taken to ground, and wasn't called htb a single loving time

Frost giving away three blatant frees and one maybe free in the space of 90 seconds and none of them get called, sure okay

In what universe do they pay a free for an illegal tackle after the ball should be dead from the free seconds before? Presumably that means anytime someone gets held after the ball crosses the boundary should be a free too

Itís because it was high I think. High contact has been a reason to reverse frees forever

Generally for pretty egregious stuff though rather than a tackle that slips high before play comes to a stop. It was weird imo

Umpiring was fairly poor standard all day and we probably got the rub of it in some important moments.

Banning phones because of betting needlessly punishes players wanting to use a phone for any other reason. Don't care if the sacredness of betting is upset by this.

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.

Just ban sports gambling.

For everyone, not just players.

Ban the companies.

Im sure the warning they get about this infraction will definitely make them think twice before breaking the rules again.

quote:

In my entire Melbourne Football Club supporting life, there is no player Iíve loved more than Nathan Jones.

During the darkest moments, when it felt like supporting the Dees was a macabre procession of failures, there was Jones on the bottom of a pack trying to will his teammates to show just a modicum of his desire.

With his 300th game on Saturday, Jones represents every Demons supporter who has refused to give up on the club despite countless reason to throw in the towel. Despite it being so incredibly painful for so long.

A nice article by Titus, and relatively serious for him.

Kiara Bowers very lucky to have her medal, hardly the fairest player having been charged with tripping and dangerous tackling a number of times this season, plus the fact she polled votes in the double up games against West Coast.

She's a great player but not B&F worthy this season imo.

There is something about playing against the eagles that makes other teams wake the gently caress up, and its getting annoying.

West Coast seem to just give up when the opponent gets a run on, even before McGovern was subbed out they looked like they were going through the motions.

Richmond players had a loving tantrum for the last ten minutes and should grow the gently caress up the insecure cunts.
