AFL

This is fantastic getting two of the biggest clubs to Darwin! There have been some positives to come out of the no Sydney/Melbourne games.

How does Jarrad Polec get dropped by North Melbourne when he had the most disposals in last weeks game. The following week he had the third most in their loss to Richmond. The coach said he hasn’t been up to standard but he is constantly in the top 5 for disposals for the club. Hopefully he comes back to Port.

Hawks 50K , Richmond, Carlton, North Melbourne $45K

$25k of each fine suspended.

The fines arose when a Richmond premiership players’ partner attended a beauty salon, the children of a Carlton player attended a theme park on the Gold Coast with their grandparents and a group of North Melbourne players’ partners went to a game at the Gabba.

All were breaches of the guidelines outside in a document provided to players before they entered the hubs.

Maybe it’s more about the quality of the disposals rather than how many you get?

Not much point if they are not good ones?

With North Melbourne Abandoning their Stand-alone VFL Team, An Opportunity to Merge their Reserves team with either Coburg, Frankston, Port Melbourne (again), Werribee (again) or even Williamstown & the Merged Team will take the Kangaroos name & colours, but play at another Ground.

I thought an AFL match on a workday afternoon in WA would get a small crowd, I was wrong.


According to Herald Sun, it was Trent Cotchin’s wife Brooke who did a facial at the Esteem day spa that cost the Tigers $20,000. She made an Instagram post but deleted soon after.

What was the crowd?

12,304 as the tweet said.

I still think that this was quite a good crowd at Optus Stadium, even if there were two Victorian teams being played in Perth.

Especially for a game that started at 3.40 local time.

Thanks the tweet wasn’t coming up on my computer yesterday.

I was very worried about my Eagles tonight. During the first half, Geelong controlled the match.
The Cats lead by 16 points. However during the 2nd half, the Eagles fought back to win by 9 points in a nail biter. Josh Kennedy kicked the match winning goal to seal the match. The Eagles are now in top 4.

Has it ever happened where a player calls for a head count if they believe an interchange infringement has not been detected by the interchange steward

Yeah I believe it has happened a few years ago. Technology and camera action has prevented that from really happening.

I watched St Kilda yesterday and I think they are the real deal. They have a good side and will be real contenders over the next 5 years.

You’re quite right. We were awful yesterday.

From what I have seen St Kilda have been in good form this season. Nothing stopping them from mske the finals this year. They have seemed to have benefited.

With the current stage 4 lockdown in Melbourne one would assume the Grand Final must be moved now. There is no way they can get a crowd in before October. Hopefully its announced soon.

I was a bit nervous going to games but I am going to the Bulldogs v Port game tomorrow night.

As someone who went to last weekend’s Swans vs Hawks game…I’ll give you some advice.

  1. Wear a mask
  2. Follow all instructions
  3. If there are wankers who think they can manspread into every other seat, move at least two seats if you can, if not, report them. This was at the Waratahs game, but still.

Yeah I have a mask that I am planning on wearing. I’m also not buying any food there and taking my own, I would love to support the venue but not risking it.
