A question regarding Howe. It never came up who tackled Mitchell and broke his leg. Could it be that Howe was the one and is sorting out some demons? I could be completely wrong here and he is just injured (as we don't even know what is wrong with Gunston) but just a thought.
It wasn't Howe that collided with Mitchell.

You said that like you know who did. Not that it matters though 😂
Why would anyone who knows confirm who the player is? The way posters go after players (and posters who share information) on this board makes it unlikely we will ever be told who it was. Can only imagine the things we are not told on here due to the unbridled enthusiasm of posters to pot players...I’m quite thankful that the information hasn’t come out :)

Agree, imagine if it had been Tim O'Brien..... release the mob!

Just saw on the news Sheedy offering free tickets to the Country Game for fire victims.

Surely something that would assist in rebuilding their properties would be more appropriate?

Reported as a good news story, once again for the injectors, but really if the AFL/Sheedy want to make a mark then donate something tangible!
Oh * tried, but when they checked their tangible assets register all they could find in surplus were needles, syringes and shredders. So they settled on the tickets.

I’m glad you’ve confirmed it wasn’t Howe, but posters/supporters need to realize it’s completely irrelevant who it was as it was a freak accident.
It is not the fault of any player, coach, club doctor etc
It’s a freak accident.
I could not give a fat rats flying arse who tackled him or kicked the footy to him or collided with him

Completely agree. Accidents happen and would rather our boys be going hard in practice, than playing bruise free footy.

An argument supporting limiting runners is that player interchange can be used for messaging.

Hope they remember that when the reducing interchange argument comes up again
No argument here, reduce the interchange to sweet feck all and I'll be happy as a pig in mud.

I wasn't sure where to post this but it has been reported that a player selected in the top 15 is already homesick and wants to go back to his home state. It was posted on a Facebook AFL Insider page so take it for what its worth but if it is true then maybe someone like a Ben King that wants to come back to VIC could be had to fill a future KP role. Out of those top 15 players selected then it could really only be 7 players as the other 8 got drafted to their home states and 2 of them cannot play for their home state (TAS). I mentioned Ben King because there was talk early that he wasn't happy about going to the GC. Has anyone heard anything else?

1 Sam Walsh (VIC) Carton
2 Jack Lukosius (SA) Gold Coast
3 Izak Rankine (SA) Gold Coast
4 Max King (VIC) St Kilda
5 Connor Rozee (SA) Port Adelaide

6 Ben King (VIC) Gold Coast
7 Bailey Smith (VIC) Western Bulldogs
8 Tarryn Thomas (TAS) North Melbourne
9 Chayce Jones (TAS) Adelaide

10 Nick Blakey (NSW) Sydney
11 Jye Caldwell (VIC) GWS
12 Zak Butters (VIC) Port Adelaide
13 Isaac Quaynor (VIC) Collingwood
14 Jackson Hately (SA) GWS
15 Jordan Clark (WA) Geelong

Have it on good authority by someone involved in the club,and not blaming anybody as accidents happen and it was just a bad freak injury which occurred to Tom Mitchell as he was being tackled by Wingard and as Tom's leg got swung out unfortunately Tim O'Brien came through and made contact to Tom's leg, end of story....just a freak accident.

More importantly is this how Wingard hurt his calf? Jokes... just jokes.

So sick of the AFL media’s Richmond narrative (or anti-Hawthorn for that matter).

Just went to watch the highlights of our JLT 2 game and they literally only showed 1 of our first 6 goals.

Maybe the didn’t show much of either team you might be thinking? Nope they even found time to put a Richmond POINT in there!!

For the whole highlights video they only showed 4 of our 13 goals, but they showed 8 of Richmonds 14!!

I have no problem with the rest of the comp underrating us but this type of stuff grinds my f***ing gears. Thank god we have Hawthorn Highlights on youtube otherwise we’d be screwed.

What happens when it's a stinking hot day in Perth and Ross Lyon and Longmire's teams are battling it out in the defend to the death cup, and no goals are scored so no one is allowed on the pitch to provide water?
