No, not at all, and that wasn't what I was refering to. Winmar's opponents knew he had the tendency to be a grumpy cat onfield. That game back in 98, Francina directly targetted him, got him reported and probably dragged and it probably was the most obvious of a few similar occasions. Didn't vilify him AFAIK, just pissed him off.This could be a naive question but: do you think Brad & Ben are experiencing extra heat or pressure about their performances because they are indigenous?
I imagine there is always going to be some level of latent racism for these guys, but are they being treated in a different manner to other poorly performing players at the moment?
Is Long being racially vilified? Man I would hope not.
a bit worried that this could already be a sign of uncontrolled aggression that is evident post brain trauma. Maybe a long bow but plenty of evidence in the connection between the two. The example used most often is Phineas GageLooks like Paddy will be out for an extended period. (Scroll down for video of the incident)
Didn't Dunstan rack up about 40 disposals in the VFL not so long ago? Racking up big numbers in the VFL doesn't mean they will do similar in the AFL.
So if the general consensus is that Dunstan will be delisted at the end of the year and shouldn't be getting games, what are so different about Freeman's VFL possessions that would warrant giving him a list spot? Or would warrant him coming into the senior team instead of Byrnes and Bytel, or even Dunstan?
