Liked: Paddy Ryder playing like a champ. BOG in my opinion.
Learnt: The Pies have some pride with a gutsy win in Perth.
Hated: Paddy gets his 1st win in finals and does his hammy in the last minute of the match.

Saints being the finals bolter...

Finals footy is always at another level...

It seems we get to the final four teams left and it’s the same status quo boring shitful faces of the teams representing Vic

I learned the Tigers are a self declared "Great team"


Tigers coach Damien Hardwick defended his players and blamed viewers for focusing on the negatives.

“Great teams always play on the edge and the fact of the matter is it’s a big boys’ game,” he said post-game.

What would you call a team that has won 2 of the last 3 flags and competed in the last 4 prelims?

I learnt that you are a moron.
The statement was clearly aspirational, playing on the edge as a criterion for attaining greatness, as your club did and as RFC is getting closer to.

Liked the way the Cats played, what an class exhibition.

Learned the Saints will be top 6 next year.

Hated the injury to Paddy Ryder, made a massive difference to the Saints momentum.

Learnt Lions a year or 2 early, many duped in and outside the club they are ready now. 2017 spooners to a 2020 pf is awesome progress.

Cats are extremely determined and prior form against RFC may go in their favour.

Trent Cotchin is a terrif captain.

Motorbikes have accelerators on both handles.

Celebrate goals with caution and respect, young fellas, lest you end up with sh*t in face.

I really feel some clubs have quite a few “over celebrators” port probably number 1, seems like they’ve been number 1 on that card since their inception however Brisbane are slowly catching them.

The celebration is fine.

It's when he acts like a dick regarding the player on the mark that irks me. Nearly every time he points behind the actual mark and the umpire never gets sucked in. Wish he would just quit it and go back and kick the ball.

Learnt- The deliberate out of bounds rule can change overnight.
If I was an AFL coach, I'd be seriously asking the umpires which rules we were playing this week using that as an example.

Perhaps not this week of course, but it is just ridiculous how rule interpretations change not just from week to week but from from match to match.

Let's have 1 set of rules, interpreted the same way, all year. It's not rocket science.
