It wasn't worth it anyway, your meltdowns were weaksauce last season. I expect a better effort this year, maybe take some tips from your kid as they hit the toddler tantrum stage.

I wish there was some why of finding the old SAS Wiki to get the Finals schema image from it

Sure, it could be reduced list sizes, lack of resourcing, not being a viable professional career pathway, and a whole lot of other factors

Also, how has St. Kilda won jack poo poo despite being a foundation club?

They weren’t a foundation club

When they did join they took like three seasons to win a match and that was after requesting a count back on the scores.

I was just going to look up whether the Saints have won more wooden spoons than made grand finals in my lifetime and I have just found out that St Kilda won 5 of 6 wooden spoons between 1983 to 1988 which is frankly impressive in its own right

Makes Pluggers goals record even more impressive

Welp injury to Kemp in the last 30 seconds or so leaves us with zero fit players in reserve?

Positive win though, hopefully it pisses down rain every week because we looked really clean disposal and marking in the conditions

Melbourne really do seem to be buying into the hype that last year was a blip and 2018 was a pretty accurate representation of where they were at.

I look up and look around and see a guy standing ordering his food ... about 6'3, 6'4 ... skinny as a rake, African dude with braided hair and wearing a red and black hoodie (not Essendon). I'm actually impressed they didn't go up and ask him for a photo.

Also apparently Sarah Perkins is about to play for Melbourne this week so go Dees I guess.

Lol I guess we literally ran out of available players on our list?

Oh well, Perkins is good at kicking it through the big sticks and thats been our biggest shortcoming so far, so could be a good fit!

Its a real shame Lauren Pearce is out, because a forward duo of Cunningham and Perkins would be pretty good if she didnt need to cover the ruck

I actually wonder how many staff you need on site to safely operate a venue as big as the MCG with spectators banned. I guess you could shut all the gates up and have some security patrol the outside, have all the players, officials and tv staff come in underground which would cut down a lot

If the NBA and others are postponing things instead of going behind closed doors, I can’t see footy going forward with closed-door games of their own. I don’t think it’s the right solution.

Given the weekly nature of footy schedules — not sure you can pack in mid-week games — it’ll probably wind up being a shortened season. Only question is how short.

Chop first five weeks off, everyone plays everyone else once
