    If 50-100 people like your post then there's our petition ready-made to email the club. Thank you for writing this. It's been bothering me no end.

    I love fireworks and hated the ban on private use when it was imposed. I just don't want smoke all over the field and our players being forced to inhale that shit. It's madness.

    I'm sure firework smoke isn't great for you, but it's the sort of thing you'd need prolonged exposure to for it to be bad for you. It's no worse than sitting near a burning campfire. A few minutes every fortnight wouldn't hurt anyone.

    Neither will the odd fag once a fortnight but the club will come down hard on any player who tries it.

    That's mostly because smoking fags makes you want to smoke more fags, and before you know it, you're smoking a pack a day and it's severely affecting your fitness. Standing around in fireworks smoke isn't as addictive.

    At the Bullies game there was a phurkin haze descending on the ground for a good 5 mins.
    I sit on the Leederville wing and couldn't see what was going on in the opposite pocket.
    Mind you security had confiscated my labrador.

    I take your point. However, even if it could be proved that a player had limited his fags to one a fortnight over a long period, any player who did that would be punished for failing to take his fitness seriously.

    I like the drums at the start they bring onto the field with the pump up song but can they do better at making sure the drums are in timing with the beat? Otherwise it's terrible and we might as well not have them at all.

    Not really seeing a correlation between thread topic and threat title happening here.

    I felt like the spirit of your thread was basically the same as this one so I thought I'd opportunistically merge the two as a way of bumping it.

    It's not about the addiction. My concern is the presence of metallic particles in the smoke that are bioreactive. If you're busting a lung running after a player, surely it can't be good breathing in that stuff.

    He was emg last week V Dogs so he missed Peel's game V Subi and is the travelling emg V Demons so missed Peel V WP. Hoping real hard that Sony plays today and Pearce doesn't slide back into the side without tasting a few games at Peel.Tucker had another good game so hopefully he gets a call up next week if any changes before Pearce.

    Despite popular BF opinion, Pearce played OK (and better than a lot who kept their spots) in the first couple of rounds. I'm happy with a move away from him to youth, but I also think he will get more games throughout the year. He is the perfect small to have as emergency. He can play a number of positions, his disposal and general game is better than average (once again despite BF opinion) and he will be OK without playing every week as a 31 year old. If Walters misses, then DP is a cromulent replacement.

    The vitriol aimed at him is ridiculous.

    I think you are being a little kind to Danyle and harsh on us supporters. I was on board the DP train when he first came over and I thought he would bring a lot to the team. But I have been somewhat disappointed over the years. When we had the 3 Pearces in the team, Danyle was dubbed "20m-Pearce" as that was about the distance you could rely on him to hit a target. Anything more and it would end up in opposition hands or OOB. I think he looked good in the first couple of games because everyone else looked like crap; it's not like DP stepped up.

    Don't hate the guy and if he is given another opportunity in the team then I hope he kills it and makes me eat my words. Like you I am happy that a youngster is getting ago instead and am happy to have him as an emergency until someone else steps up to take his place.
