A sight that we can all enjoy. The violent little grub shouldn't have even played the semi final let alone the grand final.

Honestly Evolution 2 is a fine enough game. You're obviously not going to get anything of EA or 2K quality but it's honestly a pretty playable, competent game. It's lightyears better than Evo 1 and I've enjoyed what I'm playing of it.

No mention about the dead dogs in the media yet

Yeah, I haven't heard anything about it. Sounds like Hunter got on the piss and smashed his car and called Bailey to pick him up and drop him off at Gowers'.

I have zero doubt that Hunter will be stood down as vice captain, will cop the maximum fine and will cop a ban. If I were the club then I'd just ban him for the rest of the season because this poo poo was ridiculous and he dragged a 19yo kid into this poo poo.

English has been real good at dropping back. Good ruckman work

Bulldogs had two brownlow winning ruckmen that did the same thing, he's no Dempsey and he lacks the strength of Wynd but if you aren't a dominant tap ruck then you need to do stuff like that.

They had Rory Lobb but he's always been pissy about being a ruck over a forward and got traded over it iirc

Lobb was never a ruckman. He was just a tall player that they threw into the ruck to fill a gap.

Funny thing is that we don't get so many of those these days. Which means the Westerns and the Greater Westerns really hate each other.

The Giants are just absolute fuckwits that have never gotten over 2016 where their fans were drowned out in a home game and then Toby Greene punched Caleb Daniel in the face as he was running past, kicked Dahlhaus in the face, punched Cooney in the face back in the day and tried to stick his fingers in Bonts face. They showed their cards immediately by having Haynes flip the coin even though he's not the captain and it's pretty clear that they just can't stop themselves being absolute loving grubs when they play against us.

Bont did gently caress up his throat, though. And he got off.

There's a difference between just an accidental collision in the course of the game which results in an injury and some oval office like Toby Greene just punching Caleb Daniel in the face with a roundhouse as Daniel was running past. One is an accident and it sucks and the other is yet another case of a sociopath that can't stop himself from doing poo poo like that.

Should that hit on Whitfield have resulted in a free kick? I thought it was just part of the play but I've seen a bunch of people on BigFooty saying GWS were robbed

Nah, Naughton was clearly chasing the ball and didn't go off his line. Accidents happen and good players get injured but sometimes a guy getting knocked out in a collision is just that.


edit: I don't want to victim blame but Whitfield pulling short in the contest was what probably caused him to get caught in the head

Only touch Jacobs could get was cheap shotting Bont from behind.

edit: And before you ask, Jacobs did not get a fine or even cited for the melee. He elbowed Bont in the back of the head and nothing came of it.

Please, please pay holding the ball more. Players just drop the thing or throw it forward or to a teammate and the umpire just waves play on until thereís an enormous scrum around the ball itís miserable to watch.

He's definitely right there. You see dozens of players just drop the ball in a tackle and nothing is loving called every weekend.

One thing that seriously summed up Brown's game is that there was a marking contest in the Norf 50 where it was him against Cordy and Wood. He basically just ran at Cordy who was barely in the contest while Wood took an uncontested mark while Brown looked offended that he didn't get a free for being blocked.

Wasn't Jeff White bending over the pick up the ball when someone took a swing at it and got him in the face instead? It's probably not really comparable to Membrey's kick, there wasn't really much force in the action.

Nah, King decided to try and roundhouse kick it out of mid air and just kicked White who was at best slightly hunched over.
