So on the AFL app:

"A game that could of gone each way. Sydney had 50 more disposals, but Geelong were better in the contest winning clearances 18-7 and contested possessions 62-44 after half time."

Could OF gone EACH way? Have, either.

I can handle "could of" here and there on Big Footy, but an actual journalist? I think the AFL sacked the wrong people this year.

My admiration for the Hun has grown exponentially this year.

Somehow, they've managed to find something headline worthy about Essendon every couple of days. On occasion, there have been multiple double page spreads on the same day.

...and this for a team that finished 16th.

To Robbo et al, great work! You've come up with so many mind numbing banalities so regularly that I'm beginning to think you're a bunch of fantasy novellists on a mission from the AFL.

Then I remember that the Hun is pitched at a grade 4 level of comprehension

And suddenly, it all becomes clear...

Haven't been following the news, has anyone at Essendon been seen wearing a hat?

RF today. Not one not two but three opinion pieces on the Pies. The only opinion pieces on the page. Coincidentally written by two Pies supporters.

I know the Age is just a shadow of itself but at least try to pretend there are issues beyond your staffers' favourite club and, who knows, maybe even outside Victoria

SEN NSW can't even be arsed to feature the Sydney Derby...just a copy paste from their Vic site regarding AFL.

Good article. Well researched. I also think the Devil's assistant coach Adam Ize would be a good fit for Collingwood.
Also nice to see West Coast great Peter Smith get a mention. Sorry - Schmich.

I suspect that's a satire site, or the works of someone who's mentally ill. A quick look at another sports article here show's they're consistently bad writers, rather than it being a one off article.

"Two spectators were sent off after abusing a New Zealand player who played against New Zealand in a showpiece match in Southampton in the World Test Championship final on Tuesday."
