FAQs & Resources Thread

It has an index at the top with threadmarks so it's easy to find what you're looking for – or easier than scrolling through 250 pages of AFL Rules, Regulations and CBA pdfs anyway.

These sorts of questions are all answered along with a bunch of other resources made by posters from across BigFooty (feel free to add to it!):

its generalising about a whole culture

its exactly the same actually
No it isn’t. Asia is made up of completely different countries and cultures.
The “tribes” aspect of indigenous Australians is more along the lines of Clans from Wales and Scotland or the “families” of China.

Interesting. Unsurprised by the Mummy & Phil news, but somewhat regarding Jake. I'd tend to agree with dlanod that he didn't get that much interest. Question is, will he be managed as a KPF, or a KPD - and how does that impact our drafting strategy?

With one less spot on the list, I wonder if we'll put#13 up for auction and either pick up a couple of early second round picks - one to pay for Fahey and the second to grab a KPD (presuming Jake is played as KPF and we take Callaghan with #2); or otherwise, move it into next year's first round. Perhaps we could trade with Collingwood for their 2022 first round pick, just to help them pay for Daicos, and for the deathriding LOLs! :cool:
Ohhhh I do like a good death ride and Collingwood will be desperate to get more picks in this draft!

More Native American tribal groups who also see themselves as separate nations to a large degree and have had 10,000s of years less to differentiate culturally

Sad to see 2 originals delisted, and together with Mummy, will be 3 great clubmen leaving. Hopefully we can have off field roles for all 3 of them. On a positive note, shows courage from the club to make those calls.

I wonder if there will be any more? I thought Hutchesson may have been walking the tightrope - maybe 1 more year to show his body is up to to it?

Respect to both players for their role at the club in its early years, and their efforts on the field. All the best for the future.

Not unexpected, and given the tone of the announcements (confirmed in Sam's case by his immediate retirement), weren't tactical in nature around a later re-listing.

I'm still expecting Shipley & Hutchesson to likely be delisted, but perhaps we're waiting to see what happens with Finlayson and Riccardi. Or just giving due respect to Reid and Buntine by announcing them first. Still Mummy to go as well, but perhaps he'll get a bigger fanfare. Perhaps at the Kevin Sheedy Medal night?

You understand that indigenous Australians are culturally diverse right? As in there are multiple dialects and origin stories. Your comment is akin to “all Asians are the same”
I come on to bigFooty for opinions, a bit of goss maybe, and others perspectives about the game, but not to argue or thrash out things.
No doubt the 3 guys I mentioned felt a brotherhood or affinity that was commemorated in our indigenous strip designed by Bobby of the 3 totem animals, the goanna, the Long necked turtle, and the frilled neck lizard.

Will say thanks to Buntine and Reid for 10 years with the club, both missed a lot of games through injury and spent plenty of time in reserves but strong club players and left an impression
Buntines injuries meant he never reached the heights he should have, slowed him down and effected his development

Interesting that Mumford hasnt been announced with these 2 although he does deserve his own seperate article, appreciation day or he could still be on the list in 2022 being a favourite of Cameron but more so his salary is in the rookie list part instead of the soft cap
