If not for some really bad goalkicking Carlton should have pushed it out to a 40 point margin in the 3rd and that might have been enough to break it

Seems inevitable that the dogs will hit the front at some point and Iím not sure Carlton has enough to rebound from that

Carlton should have closed the door on this one in the third. Dogs have been irresistible ever since they got a sniff of it, they're great to watch when they're up and about.

Yeah poor kicking at goals in the third hosed us.

Also the fact we only won 7 centre clearances for the match.

Also Willie Rioli is in drugs-based trouble again. Just before he was due to start training with the Eagles again.

Preeeeetty drat stupid from Willie. He'll get off with a fine but just where is your headspace at if you're deciding to get on a plane with weed and your name is fuckin Willie Rioli... It does sort of put to bed any doubt of his version of events when it came to his WADA/ASADA testing though, blokes clearly not very bright.

Honestly think the best thing for him is to get back into the club and system as soon as possible, don't delay his start to training or even playing. Help him out by getting him back amongst the playing group. He basically needs a full time minder.

Big news for AFLW coming from today:

quote:

ALL 18 clubs will have a NAB AFL Women's team by the end of 2023, with the AFL Commission throwing the doors open to expansion and bringing the start of the season forward to December.

The next AFLW season will begin in December this year to give the 10-round competition clear air and prevent an overlap with the AFL competition, with the Grand Final to be held in mid-March, 2022.

Next year will have a season starting in December and ending March 2022, with no overlap to the menís AFL season.

Next season will still have 14 teams, and whether the remaining four teams join in 2022/23 or later.

I really like the plan to start in December. It can even move back further when the last four teams come in, and they can play a proper season where everyone plays each other once.

It will also be very nice to have an extra couple of months of footy during the usual offseason. That will mean essentially only October and November without footy being played.

They'll probably need to schedule mostly twilight and evening games to avoid the worst of the heat, but hey, it's not like they haven't been playing most of the season in summer to this point anyway.

That is happening already though. February is pretty much the hottest month of the year and there is almost always a massive heatwave around March in Adelaide at least. That being said, I can see an argument that doing it for four months straight is tougher.

Some real entertaining footy happened today. Also I think 7 seemed to be using a lot more of the behind the goals camera during general play, it was fantastic when they stuck with it for basically a whole end to end play, gave you so much better of an idea of what was going on.

I donít expect theyíll abandon their default wing and pocket cameras, and I imagine the general audience tends to like the action shots they produce, but I hope they keep peppering some different shots in there in the future.

So I went to the game yesterday, it might have been my first game since the 2018 semi final? Canít remember if I went to any in 2019 or not.

Man, it was so nice to have a whole game without dickhead commentators or being spammed by gambling advertising every 30 seconds.

Former Collingwood cheer squad figurehead Jeffrey ďJoffaĒ Corfe has been charged with two counts of historical sexual offending against a Melbourne teenager more than a decade ago.

Detectives allege the 60-year-old sexually penetrated a child under the age of 16 twice during a 2005 incident in Coburg, in Melbourneís north.

Port Adelaide investigating plagiarism claims over Indigenous guernsey

"Port Adelaide is investigating accusations the design of it guernsey for this yearís Sir Doug Nicholls Round was plagiarised.

This week, the club unveiled its jumper, which it said was created by a student from the clubís Aboriginal Power Cup - a program centred around the engagement of young people in Aboriginal culture.

On Thursday night, however, Indigenous artist Elle Campbell took to social media, writing that the Powerís guernsey was based off ďmy exact paintingĒ, accusing the studentís submission of being a blatant copy of her artwork."

Port stealing another jumper? Oh my. Didnít they plagiarise a logo a year or two ago as well?

Theyíve wisely deleted it now to protect her but they posted a video of the girl who plagiarised that painting explaining her inspiration for the piece full of confidence lol. Awkward.

Port really should have done a bit more checking on this before letting a teenager expose herself so badly with a very bad decision

Edit: actually I donít know how they could have. It would be pretty hard to check everything and she would have declared the art was hers 🤷‍♂️

Appropriation is a big aspect of the art world and I can very well see this girl seeing nothing wrong with what she did, particularly if it has aspects of her own culture in it. Problem is as soon as you go commercial with artworks it becomes a clusterfuck.
