Aaron bloody Hall, I'd ban him from calling for a drive by receive if I was Leigh Adams

That soft free kick to Buddy got what it deserved.

I'm okay with that being paid a mark, since Buddy controlled it before the slap out.

But I'm not okay with that being called an arm chop. It was either a mark or a spoil. Umpires literally chose the one option that it definitively should not have been called.

Swans getting a good rub of the green from the umpires.

North's pressure has been fantastic.

North are getting shafted here. What the 'free kicks are even' crowd miss is the rub of the green the Swans would be getting at the SCG.

Why do North not get the 50/50's here?

Ie if Rampe runs it over the boundary line one more time it needs to be paid

I have this sneaky suspicion Tom Papley has a Norm Smith medal in his near future

Any other team that offers Franklin big money is crazy. Hes just a cherry on top player for a good team.

Hipwood running around on the 3rd 4th defender may be worth it. Not sure about the defensive pressure aspect though.

Buddy Franklin playing a solid support role in an attack where Sam Reid is the cornerstone...

We are garbage, and wouldn't make a difference on the end result but turn it up mate.

Media and umpiring this quarter is such a love fest I'm not sure even Pornhub would post it.

Considering we are on the arse end of the FK differential ladder every year....its nice to have the rub of the green once or twice a year.

I’m baffled that Josh Walker still has an afl contract


I posted this 5 minutes ago - he’d already been awful.

Since then he’s had two goals kicked on him directly without even forcing a proper contest, and stood mouth open watching while another was kicked from below a contest he was watching.
