Reminds me of the photo of Dimma and his new partner a few months ago. :) Ol Bucks, always one step behind...

Dimma is dating a real person at least, rather than an "influencer" who has done a deal with Bucks* to maximise social media impact.

* Don't know if this is actually true but it's my story and I'm sticking to it

Truth is a perception, so let’s go with this!

I'm sure that's her thinking, but Figgy probably thinks it's because of his looks.

This is just another reason why Scumwood should get rid of Buckley. Wears a "Chicago Baseball" hoodie.....but matches it with a New York Stinkees hat. (New botox professional girlfriend is wearing a San Francisco Giants hat which probably belongs to him as well.)

What a phoney. Pick a team dhead.

Even the staged photoshoot is a phoney attempt at a paparazzi shot.

That’s what happens when you mix a Collingwood coach with a plastic nurse.

I wouldn't put it past an "influencer", she'll be chasing "the barometer" soon for a few extra followers.

What's the bet a fair slab of that is spent on lifting the AFL offices up a nice height to improve the view....?
How's about shearing off 30 or so mil for clubs to reinstate part of their footy dept to start with!

I agree. Its a terrible look to the players IMO. Cut your spending, we won't cut as much of ours, then we want to invest a massive sum into making a stadium that most already hate slightly better.

I think the product here is key and restoring the soft cap should be priority number 1 but then the RFC have called that out, the AFL won't do it.

A strong Hear Here for that valid outrage Redmania.

Don't parade you're hot new Barbie Doll before the divorce settlement ..........silly man Nafe!! Ex Mrs Figgy gonna rip you harder now.

A Bradenton Marauders hat from the minors would be much more credible.

Better colours too !

Still not convinced about Melbourne.

And if I was, I’d be convinced they peaked in form.

The Dees are also giving the comp an entire season to work them out. Kudos to them if they can go all the way without someone dissecting their game.

They also have few injuries, they lost Tomlinson for the year playing as a third tall defender but outside of that and a niggle to Viney, they are peak fitness. Lose any one of May, Pretracca or Gawn, even Fritch and they will struggle to cover them.

Their game is simple as it gets.

Gawn to Oliver and Petracca then out to the wide runners.

Keep Lever free to play off an opponent.

Done.

Hear kingy with some stats on SEN today. Something about second and third contested possession. Apparently its the major indicator of wins. The demons have dropped off greatly in the past few weeks. Lions are the highest at the moment.

This 100%! it's all we heard about us during season '18 & unfortunately for us it came to be. Dogs are the same & they have shown if u put some heat of them they fold. Cats & Lions are peaking now. We haven't even started our build as yet.

Next week the key stat will be contested marks or number of bounces or meters gained per left handed handball o_O

And then footy punters regurgitate what he says and think they’re footy geniuses.

Convinced by Carlton. They have some very good players and ordinary scrubbers.
Their gamestyle is horrid, there is no plan beyond a mark and then handball to someone running past.
Teague is another fail

Know former blue Alex Marcou and his opinion and mine is that with so many older players who either have just retired or will in 4_16 months time that they won't or have not found enough players to go ahead or replace aging stars.
Betts casboult,Murphy,Simpson,Kruser are a few who come to mind and all were important.
