    Opinion The Great Roo Cull - 4 years on. How do you feel now?

    The shock and emotion have well and truly passed, but I haven't changed my views. It was time for Petrie, Spud and Dal Santo. Boomer could easily have played another year and I would really have loved to see him do it cement his grip on most games played, but I understand the symbolic impact of...

    News Coronavirus (COVID-19) Discussion Thread II

    Never read her or her shit paper, but the rundown in the Age is extraordinary. Sounds like the US embassy here leaked her dodgy information, that she blew up in a misleading story, that the White House then used as "evidence" for their otherwise pretty unfounded claims about the Wuhan lab. What...

    News Coronavirus (COVID-19) Discussion Thread II

    I don't think it's fear-mongering so much as a reminder of what is at stake. Lighter distancing rules and those meatworkers could have been to pubs and shops and we'd have hundreds of new cases.

    News Whaaaa (Dean Laidley arrested in St. Kilda - charged with stalking "and other charges" - remanded in custody until 11 May)

    100% this. Huge respect for Laidley as a player and coach. And everyone should get help to deal with whatever mental health, drug, gender identity issues are there to live a healthy and happy life. But the big issue here for me is the risk serious charges are undermined and a victim does not...

    News NMFC AFLW 2020

    And men’s game or women’s, it helps to be a #1 draft pick. Great story with Huntingdon but I don’t know how that Saints AA forward wasn’t rookie of the year either.

    I miss the footy, but life is better without the footy media. I'm going to try to maintain life without it when the sun rises again.

    Stonnington then Boroondara. I assume well-heeled travellers.

    Cool perspective. I'd just as soon it wasn't me or any of my family dying now, alone, in hideous agony, when it is entirely avoidable. So far everyone who has downplayed this (people die all the time of things) has been proved horribly wrong.

    I think his generation don’t say “played like rock stars” as a compliment. They mean that team wanted to look fancy but not work hard. Read the whole quote again - he isn’t convinced.

    My in-laws went on a cruise in Europe last year. She was showing us around using Facetime when her voice was drowned out by the captain announcing various measures to contain a novovirus thaty had got on board in Barcelona. Nothing like this one for infection or impact, thank god, but everyone...

    cool cool cool - seems like a cargo that shopuld be available asap, unless there is a health and safety risk, which you'd think could be managed. Also in case anyone who needs it missed this update, you can now get mental health plans via a telephone call with your GP, and talk with your...

    To be fair to the pond scum, I think today is the first time most people remembered Footy Calcifed was on the air again, so mission accompished from their point of view. I could barely watch it when they had football to discuss and there was no Eddie - could only record and ff past almost all...

    I'm not in the know, but I can tell you that from our experience the issue wasn't how nbn performed once we had it, it was the changeover - the months it took to get it installed and running properly.

    This started in China. Other fatal and highly infectious diseases didn't. We need to learn lessons without extrapolating and generalising about one country, especially one as big and populous as China.

    News NMFC AFLW 2020

    I’d hope the consultations with players and clubs covered this not-unexpected turn of events and that it’s the consensus position. Feels like a slap at the moment but as noted above the women and their comp are in a much different position to the AFL players. It’s a shame it didn’t play out...

    Autopsy Autopsy vs St Kilda

    I thought the same about Bruce, but it was some time in the third quarter on Friday night before I realised he was playing for Western. Either way, the hype/pressure/workload on King is ludicrous. A defender of Taz’s quality (or somewhere near) every game, starting with his first.

    I was told before the season that the membership stuff was held up coming out of China. I was emailed a replica to get into the Richmond game with. Mine didn’t arrive in time to take to a single game. I do not give a shit.
