Great article by Wayne Campbell:
BigFooty, sports talk back, etc is full of people complaining about umpiring. Yes it's a hard game to umpire and they aren't perfect, but I...
Seen a couple of bad examples this week of this rule
Dear AFL, there is a simple fix.
The person first to the ball, who naturally has slowed down or stopped to get the ball, is to be favoured in all circumstances.
If a Johnny Come Lately slides in and takes out their legs, free kick against...
So 25 years ago today, John Howard was elected Prime Minister of Australia, and would go on to become the second longest serving in that position.
For those old enough, what are your memories of him, and more importantly, what do you think his legacy is?
The first half of the nineties saw...
The justification is so that the AFL can give everyone more certainty - I suppose that's a plausible reason.
Thing is, I wonder if most clubs will still be expecting people to renew memberships...
Let that one sink in.
Yes, COVID19 had given us a lot to process in a short amount of time. And I'm all for pretty strict measures to contain this thing early and buy time to ramp up our medical capability.
But of all the crazy headlines we've seen, this is the one, had we six months ago been...
So apparently some banks, starting with HSBC, began changing their terms and conditions on deposit accounts last year:
Now I don't know if this guy is a crackpot or on the money or somewhere in between, but some of it is interesting. It seems banks are positioning themselves so they can, in...
Well I think we've seen enough to start thinking about what would make up the best XI from this series. Subject to change, I have this as my side:
Pretty satisfied with the...
4 corners have just finished broadcasting part 2 of "Who Cares?", a crowd sourced documentary on failings in the aged care sector:
(If you are tl,dw; at least check out from 37 minute mark in episode Two)
Scott Morrison has also announced intentions...
Ok can someone fill me in on the details? As in what the reviewers said in their deliberation?
The goal umpire wanted to check if it hit the post. The video as shown in the AFL app is not clear if it did hit the post. But it's obvious that it passed in front of it for a behind.
So I am glide typing using the Google Keyboard on a Pixel 2.
Glide typing usually picks the word you intend, but sometimes it does not. On such occasions you select the word you want from the suggestions bar, and this replaces the word you just glide typed.
For some reason on BigFooty, instead...
Ok so I haven't been in years and thought it would be good to start a thread where folks can recommend good comedians to see. You tubes welcome.
I'm a highbrow or extremely lowbrow comedy kind of guy. None of that safe stuff in between. No mainstream lame sh*t like Pickering or Hughes.
BeanCoin will never truly be able to have the "sky as it's limit" whilst it remains clearly under centralised control by a tyrannical cohort of mods. As soon as any of us start to have any real fun with it, no doubt they'll stick their grubby hands in and interfere.
Hop on the campaignercoin...
The traditional owners have been opposed to people climbing this for some time.
I climbed it many years ago as a kid, probably in the last days of it being more popularly known as Ayres Rock. I don't...
It's happened about 5 times in the last week or so.
I don't click on anything, and a full page "ad" replaces my bigfooty browser tab asking if i want to win a Coles gift card. Yeah right.
Back button usually doesn't take me back to big footy after a few presses.
Only happens on big footy...
Crows vs Giants: Dalgleish, Rosebury, Ryan
Cats vs Tigers: Stevic, Nicholls, McInerney
Swans vs Bombers: Hosking, Chamberlain, Meredith
Port vs Eagles: Donlon, Deboy, Schmitt.
Congrats to all who made the cut.
Any legal scholars able to answer this one?
I'm starting to see a trend of posts on Facebook that essentially take this form:
Photo of someone posted. Accompanying text saying they did such and such a crime (usually sexual assault of some kind, but not always). No "allegedly", or anything like...
It's purpose and benefit was questionable, and two rounds in and it's stupidity is being exposed:
Farcical 'third man up' rule needs tweaking - http://m.afl.com.au/news/2017-03-31/comment-farcical-third-man-up-rule-needs-changing
Like every other rule, this is how i imagine what goes through...
The infamous story of the Fine Cotton scandal will be familiar to most on this board. I only ever had a superficial understanding of the event, the story as told in this ABC Radio episode of "Conversations" is a great listen if you have the time.
Even for those not into horse racing it's a...
