RCD the good news story.

had more effective ball than the other 3 kids put together.

Him, Dow and Mansell are the kids of the future

Yeah. Wasn't exactly standing was it.

To be fair, we do things like that, but we do usually do it with 2 legs on the ground. I wonder if he had lost balance and fallen forwards, backwards or sideways, would we have been paid a 50? I highly doubt it

Saw Grimes do it a bit, but Andrews took it to new highs or should I say lows? Would have been nice to see him over balance and have a 50 paid.

Lippy bastards....Im praying for a rematch in a final at the G

Have these flogs EVER been raped by umpires....in their entire history ?
Let's knock them ver in the home and away game at the G first or there won't be any September rematch. At the moment we are looking at three AWAY finals ( at the G perhaps!)

Chris Fagat was quick to point out that they have injuries too and went on to say that he saw it as a contest as to who has the better depth.

Well Chris you simpleton, it makes a big difference when one team looses all there numbers from right in the guts, which means it doesn't matter who you have on the park in defence or in attack. What's more, our first 3 replacement choices in Stack, Dow and Caddy were all coming back from injury and trying to get match practice up.

I guess for a guy who needs the little blue pill to get excited, he might as well get a bulge on while he can.

Test of depth in the reserves today was a bit interesting too!!

That’s what a lot don’t understand, it isn’t that we’ve got 5 injuries, it’s that they’re all to important players from the midfield. They also fail to recognise that Vlastuin is returning from a knee that kept him out for 6 weeks. Plus the guts out are all multiple Premiership players. Bolton is the least experienced and potentially the best of them.

They were also claiming on the game last night that over the last 2 years we've had the 3rd best run with injuries in terms of games missed, but I doubt that has been weighted to reflect WHO is missing. Ie. if a player in his 1st season is out for the season compared to Dusty for example for 5 games, then they will say that the 1st club is harder down by. Using the amount of games missed (in terms of number that player has played) and use cumulative games missed it more fairly weights it which I would hazard a guess that we have been a lot worse than 3rd in the AFL for games missed over that time period.

Bailey belted Pickett head high 10 seconds prior to Pickett cleaning up starcevich. If the ump had paid that free then there would be no 1 week.
Lions were totally into him for most of the game.

Cannot believe Fagan just compared their outs with ours and that it was even at team selection. This guy is clueless. Triple premiership midfield almost completely missing against who? Ill give them Neal and thats it
He's still looking at 2020 stats and wondering what happened.

Yeah understand that but neither were reportable.

Why was Mathiesen not cited for a headbutt?

my take on Brisbane last night is they fight like 2-bit tough guys and school girls - arms flailing and mouthy . .
dumb as planks way above their stations ..
they went up a rung on my most hated ladder
wonder if Montagna the half-wit will call them "unsociable"
