They've evolved, TBR.That is the million dollar question.
One of us is gullible and naive - probably the one that thinks the AFL instructs the umpires on who they want to win the game based on whichever way the wind blows at the time.
Based on your theories then, show some balls and make some predictions about who they want in the Grand Final - this should determine how the free kicks pan out in the prelims next week right?
Super easy to ascribe motive after the event, do it beforehand since you aren't gullible and naive. Or are you too pigeon hearted to have a go?
Why would I bother? You had your chance to post replies to two significant previous posts of mine but jibbed it. Just not up to it. Are you forgetting? Like I said then, you're clearly a lightweight pigeon and a waste of my time. I've better things to do and certainly won't be rising at your weaselly attempts to provoke a reaction.

The answer is already in my prior posts if you were discerning enough to comprehend anyway. The AFL got the finals contenders they wanted along with interstate PFs and a GF they will salvage some some desperately wanted cash from, and there's a good news narrative with any of the remaining teams winning the flag. I have never stated that I know what the full agenda of the AFL is; it's probably based on sophisticated financial and marketing objectives and probably is fluid and variable at different times. How could I know their full objectives? I'm just another long-term Tigers fan who can see the evidence of partiality clearly before my eyes like many others, and am not naive and gullible enough to think it's all totally capricious or incidental.
They especially succeeded in ensuring RFC did not get a chance at a threepeat. So how about you provide an in-depth explanation how this can happen:
Note: some key quotes for a lightweight disinclined to read or think much:
- The Dogs held a differential of +79, some 46 free kicks clear of second placed Geelong on +33. The Cats were the most significant movers in the final four weeks going from sixth to second.
-Down the bottom, it was Richmond who held up the rest for most of the season.
The Tigers had by far the worst differential at -86 after receiving the least frees for and giving away the equal second most.
It completed a fifth straight season in which the reigning premiers have finished a season with a differential of -30 or more.
Pigeon-brains are barely capable of anything much beyond a one-liner. Thanks for proving once again, you're a lightweight AFL and umpires apologist who poses as a 'great rationalist' but when pressure comes on, heads for the pigeon loft. As I said, waste of my time ... again and again.The best part is I write a one-liner and he writes a 500 word reply.
