    Can someone confirm if Jasmine Anderson has played thus far.
    I felt certain she was listed for R2 however she must not have played.

    Only just got to watch the replay and that was a great game by the Crows. But completely shameless one-sided commentary. Absolutely everything was viewed through the perspective of what the Bulldogs needed to do, were doing wrong etc. My outrage peaked when in the last quarter Brad Johnson actually blamed the Adelaide player who got taken head-high and front-on, saying she should have turned her body when she bent to pick up the ball. Followed up by the player commentator (Kate Sheahan?) talking about ducking. Huh? Not one mention of the Bulldogs' player's duty of care to the player over the ball. Ooh, I was cross.

    Yeah, that was disgraceful. But it was Brad Johnson, so you can't expect much more.

    We have 2 Andersons, Heather wears the pink cap, I don't think Jasmine has played yet.

    Not to mention the woman boundary rider bringing up the free kick count in every interview. Fact is the bullies tackling technique was rubbish where as the crows went for the hips and tackled the body and were first to the ball. I think it must've been a focus at one stage and not the dogs.

    Biased commentary proves the game has arrived!

    People care.

    I knew my mum was fully behind the team when we were watching the trial game and she was angry at the umpire for trying to help Freo out, repeatedly. :D

    fairs fair though. Did you hear the commentary last weekend that heavily favoured Adelaide?

    I didn't see that one. But given Adelaide dominated and the opponent wasn't from Victoria, I'm prepared to accept that it could well have been.

    It will be interesting to hear the commentary this week, considering it's the crows home game and the only Vic team worth watching.

    Bulldogs looked ok, had a bad night in front of goals. They will be up there.

    The team I am (not) disappointed in is Fremantle. Early predictions were they had the strongest squad. What happened?

    I would consider Hope's performance vs Melbourne acceptable without excelling, or even confirming that she could excel. But she showed a few good signs of being a good target.

    All that's really been confirmed is that she isn't good enough on her own to defeat a professional coaching teams concentrated efforts to stop her. And she isn't good enough to carry a poorly coached and poorly administered team on her own.

    Hope that's a joke?

    Brad Johnson is a legend level all time great

    Adelaide Vs Carlton this week in Adelaide?

    Is there an eclipse, Blue Moon or Halleys Comet in the sky?

    I thought the commentary was a bit cringy in Adelaides favor at times to be honest. The bird on the boundary was always throwing out stats about certain crows players and the coach, minimal info on the dogs. Was all about Tex Perkins dropping 40kegs and how the crows coach is a no nonsense copper who eats gravel for breakfast and was on big brother or something.

    Yeah, that was dreadful, but both the Bullies coach & Carney both said that it was due to their poor tackling not poor umpiring... so there were no sour grapes, except in the commentary box minus Huddo.

    She was only rookie listed for the club, so not sure if she's allowed to play unless someone is injured. She's listed at 157cm, looks very slight and didn't know the club song after the Crows first win, so I think she's far from AFL ready.
