Andrew Gaff officially the 9th worst player in the AFL this year! Sample from the post.

Of course that didn't mean the athleticism attached to the Gaff name stopped: some West Coast fans engaged in acts of mental gymnastics so impressive they'd need to pee in a vial just to watch Olympic highlights on you-tube. One particular meltdown was damn near award-worthy.

I had a laugh with the AFLX team descriptions -

Each team has been named to match up with a standout attribute of its captain, with Dangerfield to lead the Bolts due to his explosive pace, Fyfe to captain the Flyers because of his marking strength and Riewoldt to steer the Rampage due to his capacity to break tackles and go hard in the air.

Betts' side will be called the Deadlys and be an all-indigenous line-up.
I think Riewoldt's team should have been called the Pussies * since when does he break tackles or go hard at anything?


* to all the ladies, not a gender reference but a word historically derived from pusillanimous, or timid/coward

Edit: found your secret post message.
Managed to get that in with the co - #10th worst players from Gold Coast!

Tom Lynch could have been the highest paid player in the game next year if you include contracts, marketing allowance and 'AFL ambassador' payments which look about as legit a payment as a Trump cheque to a money grubbing porn star. The fact that he turned that cash down and even took a pay cut to play in Victoria next year speaks volumes about how attractive a proposition Gold Coast is right now. Word is US prosecutors are desperately trying to get Gold Coast to name Julian Assange as 2019 captain and then set up a 'temporary office' in Melbourne next November. In fairness to Ecuadorian embassies, they're still a more attractive proposition than AFLX.

The Tom Lynch exit meeting with his teammates didn't go that well if reports are to be believe. None other than Lachie Weller who broke his contract with Freo less than 12 months earlier to go to the Suns apparently piped up in the meeting, in such a stunning display of hypocrisy and self-awareness that the Nationals would like to recruit him as a Minister. Steven May followed his co-captain out of the door shortly afterwards after the Suns pressed him on how committed he was to the club long term and his response was about as strong as Telstra's commitment to customer service.

Voges retires
Marsh brothers almost guaranteed to miss most of the season
Whiteman just returning from injury
Klinger 38 years old
Bancroft banned first few games
Six fast bowlers who’ve played international cricket
Spinner who’s played internet cricket

Better sign an eighth fast bowling option and second spinner.

Mofra's the funniest bugger on this forum. Bottom 50's worth a read every year imo.

I am starting to get really angry about this new cricket television deal. How can the Big Bash not be on FTA on the weekend before Christmas?
I paid for a CA subscription for the App and I still have to pay more to see domestic Cricket?
I will stop following the game altogether before I give Murdoch money.
If they keep up this gouging they will lose people like me.

The scorchers are terrible this year anyway. Every year our batting gets worse and worse by the season with retirements and/or lack of overseas batsman brought in and this year it’s gone too far.

164 could be 50 runs too much if Klinger (who’s 38 btw) and Turner don’t fire.

I didn’t realise that not all the games were FTA. That’s just shit and stupid.

Cricket Australia are very good at shooting themselves in the foot unfortunately. They choose money over cricket at every opportunity and wonder why people have lost interest in the game.

Not a fan of booing at the best of times
Especially your own players for the crime of being selected in the team
Always a few in the crowd but today at the g was a bit harsh on Mitch marsh
yerrrp , strange as it’s only west Aussie’s that boo isn’t?..well according to vicco big footy fans

While selectors probably wouldve preferred more runs from marsh,he’s obviously there as much for his bowling especially on ANOTHER mcg road, hanscombs a waste of space at test level at the moment so not sure while vic fans upset.

Anyways the one eyed vicco supporters should’ve saved their booing for the mcc/curator for producing ,for upteenth time, another lifeless pitch aimed at ensuring 5 days of gate takings/placating their Indian counterparts
