Looks like the Saints had a few extra players to contend with. Free kick count 14 to 40! :oops:

Each year it seems the same teams continue to get looked after i.e. WC, Bulldogs and North.

Both games I’ve seen of Bailey Smith, his disposal has been shocking.

Naughton looked the goods up forward. The Dogs might have the ultimate swing player there.

Couldn’t understand the booming up of Smith prior to the draft. I don’t think he’ll be anywhere near as good as most on Bigfooty where predicting.

Early days but others taken after him have looked very good.

That innings in front of the Indian crowd will have just made Ashton Turner a millionaire by the time the next IPL auction comes around. $96,000 is what he is making this coming tournament. It's going to be much more next time.

Just finished watching Pies v Blues, don’t mind saying the Blues looked quite polished. They might surprise a few this year.
They should definitely be better (couldn't be much worse of course) but don't go reading too much into JLT form. Remember us v WCE a year ago?

Holy ****, I think I might go out and king hit someone if I then get an article like the latest one in The West... Here's some classic bits:

Andrew Gaff called upon the help of old friends and family in Victoria to pull him through the traumatic early stages of his eight-game suspension for shattering the jaw of Fremantle youngster Andrew Brayshaw.
Must have been tough having to eat solid foods :rolleyes:
Distressing pictures...
Unlike those ones of Brayshaw after he let fly :oops:
... showed Gaff - flanked by injured teammates Brad Sheppard and Nic Naitanui - straining to fight back tears during the post-game trophy ceremony.
Reckon you should be able to, if Brayshaw managed to whilst holding his jaw together running off the field.
More to come.
Geez, I can't wait :rainbow:

Why does the media continue to characterise him as a ******* victim? If it was the same by some guy in amateur football they'd be calling for the death penalty and getting on their moral high horse that he should never play football again.

Gaff isn’t the victim but he might be after the first derby. The media haven’t helped his cause, but he could have easily said “guys, I did wrong - I just want to move on and put it all behind me. I’ve apologised to Andrew. We’ve shaken hands before a game. We both want our footy to do the talking” or something along those lines

Instead he’s given supporters - and maybe even our players - ammo, which could potentially just worsen everything for him and both clubs

Imagine the vic media dribbling out this kind of shit about Barry Hall after the staker hit? Or Stephen Baker when he got suspended after hitting farmer behind play?

It’s like John Howard coming out in Pell’s defence (okay maybe not that extreme, but you get the idea)

Edit: literally just seen him in Subi on the way to work. Having a coffee on his own. Wasn’t sure whether to have a chat with him and try get a judge of his character or king hit him because he was in my way and thought he was moving. In the end I did neither as I’m not a campaigner
