    Adam Goodes declines Hall of Fame invitation

    Language and terms evolve. These are regularly used interchangeably. To act like they are not is disingenuous. I also see you've now edited your comment from earlier so I'll make my position clear. If you think that in present Australia there are no communities disadvantaged through bias in...

    Adam Goodes declines Hall of Fame invitation

    No, this isn't always the case. Institutional Racism is sometimes called Systemic Racism. Societal Racism is sometimes called Systemic Racism.

    Adam Goodes declines Hall of Fame invitation

    You're talking Institutional Racism. It is sometimes conflated with Systemic Racism, and sometimes called the same thing, though for the most part when someone says Systemic Racism they're referring to Societal Racism. And no one can deny this exists in Australia.

    Preview Changes v. Collingwood - Round 13, 2021

    That’s a fair take too, BBB definitely has the runs on the board, and looked more likely to kick bags in the games he’s played as opposed to Weid. I worry that we’ll be still working this out come the later rounds too, but to me, if BBB isn’t taking marks and kicking goals, we’re playing a man...

    Preview Changes v. Collingwood - Round 13, 2021

    Obviously in the minority here but Weid has to stay for mine. He does need to take some of those marks that he's dropping, but he's an agile 23 year old FF who has continued to bring the ball to ground when it's around him. Adding to that, I feel he's faced the more disciplined and better...

    Game Day Round 12 - Melbourne v Brisbane - 7.50pm, Friday June 4, 2021

    My major concern is where our goals are coming from against their backline. Need a big game from our forwards!

    Analysis Rolling All-Australian team for 2021

    What do you consider meaningful stats? Cause Gawn has him covered also across disposals, rebound 50’s, hit outs and goals. And sorry, NN hasn’t improved his marking...

    Melbourne: what do we make of them

    Can you explain teams 'pacing themselves' to me in this context? Are you saying it's better to lose games right now and not try to win too much? Or are the coaches advising the players to only go at 90% to not burn out by the end of the year? I don't understand how any team could be pacing...

    Think star forward recruit for our opposition this week.

    Universal Love Gus and Gawn

    Look forward to this every week/fortnight. Genuinely love the banter they have, and the Gawny references to the 2010-2013 period are classic knowing how garbage we were.

    Review Dees v the Bloods - the Good, Bad & Fugly - Rd 8 2021

    Maybe second half Harmes is, but first half he had me wanting to leave the ground. His decision making was so slow it felt like he had no idea what to do with it when he got it.
