    Disagree. Fagan is bang on, though I think it should it should be a three year contract. We could and probably will lose Balic this year, guaranteed we'll get unders. It's bs and the AFL refuses to do anything about it. Shache will probably leave and Brisbane just wasted 2 years for 0 return and it pushes there rebuild back.

    I really wonder if we will lose Balic this year. Especially when you take in the fact that Fremantle spend a lot of time & money in getting his wrist right and were quite happy to keep him on contract for a full year without virtually any return.

    The AFLPA are pushing for greater player mobility through free agency. One of the unintended side effects has been an increasing tendency for players wanting to move before they qualify for FA and nominating their preferred club in the process

    The players can do this because they have the safety net of not having to go anywhere they don't agree to

    One of the solutions to players looking to leave, particularly early in their career like Schache, is to enable clubs to trade players to the club that offers the better trade provided the contract value is equivalent to the players preferred destination

    Amamzing goal from Dangerfield - hard on the boundary line and kicked it with his left. Just amazing.

    Did Rick Hardon just refer to Josh Hill as a "Superstar"?

    Geelong currently on 50 tackles in a quarter and a half. 10 more then what they had the entire Essendon game.

    Definitely a different team out there.

    I was wondering when they were going to start pinging that ruck-throw. Seen it a few times in recent weeks, but often a bit better disguised than that one.

    Boyd has been immense as their sole ruck tonight. Should have 3 goals instead of 2 as well.

    Cloke momentum killer. At least collingwood not playing Mayne.

    Yeah, I reckon the whole Mayne-bashing thing is getting a bit old, Meima.
    I know you're not the only one but it's really beginning to shit me.

    Don't know about the new Simonds Stadium.

    Seems to have a real scoring end: 22.16 to 6.1 tonight. Might have a bit of a slope.

    This is the 'streaks' round.

    A number of games this round feature teams with long winning / losing streaks v their round rivals.

    Geelong are now 11-0 v Western Bulldogs (15-1 over the past decade).
    North are 15-0 v Melbourne over the past decade (longest active streak in AFL).
    Hawthorn are 9-0 v Collingwood (all since Buckley took over).
    Sydney are 6-0 v St Kilda.
    Adelaide are 5-0 v Brisbane.

    All the 'winning' teams are underdogs this week bar Adelaide.
