De Boer a Bulldog, Suckers a Giant, another lazy journalist.

Angry about Himmelberg, ask Bont if it was low impact.
I'm happy to let the Gott in Himmel let-off go because if we make a fuss about that there'll be a bunch of ignorant GWS supporters saying "what about Bont getting off for almost killing Haynes nerny nerny ner ..."

As long as Greene gets rubbed out for a long time.

There has to be a point where the AFL have to step in with Greene. He has a long history on and off field of being a thug. Will it have to come to the point where someone has to lose an eye or have something broken because of him?
I think there's a rule that says if you get suspended for more than 16 games in your career you can't play any more.

I also think I read somewhere that he has been suspended for six games so far in his career. Clearly should have been a lot more already because he has got off lightly for numerous offences such as putting his studs in Dahlhaus's face. Still, if they rub him out for say 4 games for his EF antics he's over half way there. (Probably won't get 4 games though - you have to knife somebody to get more than two games these days. Unless your name is Jack Redpath.:rolleyes:)

Can anyone confirm the 16 game rule?

Yes, definitely a rule.

Any player who accumulates a total of 16 weeks or more of suspensions over the course of his career will be automatically deregistered from the AFL, and barred from any further participation. Any previous suspensions within the AFL are carried over at 75% of their original length (e.g. a previous suspension of four weeks will only count as three weeks under this policy), but any immediate suspension is to be considered at its full length. If any player receives an immediate first suspension of 16 weeks or more, deregistration is left to the discretion of the League.

A deregistered player may apply for an exemption to re-register or appeal the deregistration under the appropriate laws of the league after 12 months. However, only one request can be made. Should a player be exempted and re-registered, any further suspension will result in permanent, irrevocable deregistation.

Do we really care what those dropkicks think? If they can’t see the difference between an accident - Bont on Haynes - and deliberate punching, eye gouging, hair pulling and head banging - Grub and Himmelgrub - then they are criminally stupid. And I’m pretty sure those assaults were just the tip of the iceberg, they and other grubs were at Bont all game, thanks for nothing, maggots.

I think the commentators on the earlier game were saying GWS are 0 from 5 against the Tigers at the MCG but are 2 from 4 (or something like that) against Brisbane at the Gabba. Presumably meaning games played over the last 2-3 years.

So GWS are probably happy with the Tigers winning. And it makes me think they are a reasonable chance to get through to the PF against Collingwood. I'd give them a fair chance in that one too.

Please Dog, no ...
No chance they'll beat the Pies at the G. They winged about our 20k Dogs fans booing them in the 2016 PF, there will be 70k Pies fans booing them at the PF this year of they make it. GWS might beat Brisbane but that'll be as far as they get. And that's not even taking into account their horrible record at the G in general...

Gotta feel for the Crows. What they're going through at the moment is very eerily similar to what we went through in 2014. Wouldn't mind the end result being the same for them as well. A lot of people hate on them but I like them.
