Freo's reaction to Simmo's comments were beyond petty. Made a concerted effort to say they had no issues
Trumpmantle strikes again

But they also called Simpson a whinger for his post-grand final meeting with Gil where he was trying to get a better deal for the interstate sides. They are that petty and short sighted they failed to see that their club benefits from Simpsons proposals if they worked with the AFL.

This is one of those issues where both clubs should just swallow their pride and present a united front.

Football should be prioritised, being the main tenant and the one that pays the bills. I don't care if there's cricket and concerts. Fix the scheduling and get it right. It's ridiculous and a legitimate duty of care issue.

Matthew Lloyd continues to be a lightweight dumb arse.
Does anybody really listen to what he has to say.
I always get the vibe that even his fellow commentators are sniggering behind his back.
He seriously is the proud owner of a very low IQ.

Another example of words meaning nothing compared to actions.

Words: "Nothing wrong with Optus Stadium surface."

Actions: Not training on Optus Stadium anymore.

Hmm.

Haha surely can't be serious, but I wouldn't be too surprised if it was.
Honestly the AFL are really putting me off football at the moment, I think this season is probably the least amount of football I've watched in my life.

First of all, I hate the overly PC garbage of today, but, (I'll duck for cover after I say this) in some ways, a small way, I agree with that dude being called out for being too loud. Now I know we all pay our money to go the footy blah blah, we can boo, yell scream at whoever, whatever we want, but it's the overly aggressive stuff that gets on my nerves.

Heaps of people calling up 6PR this arvo on this topic saying "I'm not swearing, I'm not being racist etc, I might boo and hiss and scream, and these people with young kids told me to pipe down" I tell you what, If that's me at the footy with my young kids, I'd do the same. They may not be swearing, but they're being overly loud, argumentative and agressive, and it's not something kids need to see, or us as parents feel like we have to explain why this grown adult is acting like and absolute knob, and arguing with everyone around them. I'm all for a few beers and having a cheer, and a boo, but if someone feels the need to tell you you're being to loud and obnoxious, chances are, you are, and everyone around you is feeling the same, but doesn't want to say anything. I don't want crowds to sit there silent like at the tennis, but yelling and screaming like a banshee just isn't a good look, nor is it necessary, for any self respecting adult.

People in Perth in general are overly aggressive, in a lot of aspects of day to day life. Drive on the freeway every day and you'll see it. Idiots changing lanes every 2 minutes to try and get one car ahead cause where they're going is so much more imprtant that anyone else. The fact we can't merge is an exact by product of this. People are like "Nup, you're not getting in front of me" I've gone off topic I know, but I do in part, agree with telling idiots that yell and scream non stop, or are being way over the top, to pull their heads in stop being a flog.

This is all you'll be allowed to do soon anyway so you won't have to worry about it

In general I don't worry about it, but if someone's being a knob, I've got no issue with them being called out on it. The whole, but I didn't swear or say anything racist doesn't cut it. If you're being an obnoxious flog, no one wants to sit near that.
