    Tanking - Concequences at AFL House?

    The issue with Melbourne isn't a suprise to anybody. It was was very visible and everyone could see it at the time. Yet the AFL denied the existence of this issue, rather than making sufficient efforts to properly uncover it at the time. Not only that, but AD blatantly came out and pretty...

    Ben Johnson goes back to the future

    Time for a drastic change

    the AFL/VFL was never designed to house this many teams in the same league. throughout history it was always 12 teams playing eachother twice every season.. and bad administration saw the introduction of too many teams and the shift to the inequities we have with fixturing today. AFL games...

    Judd's game tonight

    how bad has he been? is he playing with a broken leg or something? the so called premier midfielder in the competition to have 15 touches with only a few minutes left in the game. and dare i say he has butchered quite a few of those touches. gave away at least one goal with an amateurish...

    Society/Culture Public Transport: When is enough enough?

    in the past 3 weeks now, 3 times i have experienced major delays going to/from work - and some would say i've had a good run. A normal trip to the city should take me about 40 minutes by train. when this starts taking 1 hour and 10 minutes, 1 hour and 20 minutes, it gets to the point that...

    Time to revisit an old discussion.

    A couple of years ago the question was asked: Who Has the Better Collection of Young Talent - Collingwood or Melbourne? There were some opinions displayed by certain melbourne posters that I at the time thought were laughable. The past 18 months has vindicated my thoughts, and today...

    Feedback This place is way too over-moderated these days...

    ive been a part of bigfooty for 7-8 years now.. obviously it's grown in that time so it cant possibly be the same forum it was back then.... but one trend i have began to notice of late (probably been going on for a while, but i don't post quite as often these days as i used to) is that the...

    Provocation now admissible as tribunal defence?

    what kind of joke is this competition. http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/afl/afl-tribunal-changes-allow-players-to-use-provocation-as-a-defence/story-e6frf9jf-1225971660101?from=public_rss so if a player deliberately strikes somebody, he's basically fair game for retaliation??

    Predictions: How many games will players finish their careers on?

    With presti retiring on 233, lockyer and o'bree on 227 each, it got me looking at the list of our all time games played, and wondering who can crack into the top 10.. i figured it would be nice to have a thread where we predict how many games people end up on (collingwood games only) and...

    Buying: Apartment vs House

    I keep hearing whispers that an apartment might not be the best of investments, and while i do believe it is probably the case, i've never really heard a proper explanation or anything to back it up.... so anyone have any wisdom to offer?

    Barry Hall's Goal

    correct me if i'm wrong.... but isn't the rule that when a player touches the goal post while in possession of the ball that the ball is deemed to have hit the post? how can 2 umpires get it so wrong. it was clear what happened, would expect the umpire to have better knowledge of the...

    Players deliberately ducking their heads to win free kicks

    i've noticed lately that players deliberately duck their heads when they see an oncoming player, to win a free kick, and in some cases (ie. chad cornes) this results in suspensions. The rule is actually encouraging this, and causing the players to risk their heads rather than actually...

    Collingwood On Top Of The Ladder Over The Years..

    seeing collingwood at the top of the ladder got me thinking - it hasnt happened too much in my lifetime.... so i decided to look into it: years we've been at the top of the ladder at any stage throughout the season (since 1980): 1981 (rounds 2 - 4, 6 - 10,13 - 17, 19 - 20) 1988 (round...
