Happy that Sandi finally gets to retire after the Fremantle Football Club dragged his broken body through the mud again and again just to squeeze any last bits of output from him. Deadset decent bloke and always a challenge to combat.

Using this opportunity to throwback to the defining moment of his career, the time that (according to the Freo board) Nic Naitanui intentionally sniped him in this routine marking contest.

RTB is copping it big time by WA media .....I reckon " it's time " if sacked by Freo via Perth media we then appoint RNTB as an assistant coach , one year deal !!

Geelong set to play home qualifying final at MCG as AFL rules out GMHBA Stadium as finals venue

THE AFL is determined to schedule a Thursday night week one final but has officially ruled out a GMHBA Stadium final in September.

The league is desperate to maximise its attendances across the season, hopeful it could break last year’s home-and-away record attendance in the next fortnight.
Looks like no finals in Geelong regardless of matchup. Then again, the article does say...
The Eagles hosted West Coast in 2016...

Compounded by an Auskick-esque “he tried” ruling for Mzungu’s mark, which was the only reason they kicked it in in the first place.


Such a great finish to a Fremantle home derby though, karma at every level.
3 diabolical decisions in a row:
1. Mzungu 'mark'
2. Rosa 'deliberate' that was completely at odds with how that was adjudicated at the time.
3. Ballantyne kick from 5m inside the field of play. Should've been play-on and hence game over as soon as he crossed the boundary line.

The third point made me think... for an after the siren shot could the man "on the mark" actually stand a few metres back to trick the kicker into overstepping the mark and thus playing on and ending the game? (No, I didn't watch the video, was it a similar situation?)

Lynch who was on the mark was actually standing in the wrong location.
If he was standing in the right spot Ballantyne running around would have been a lot more noticeable.

So we going for Geelong this week? I think so because if they win then a close loss by WC won't be too bad as a win next week could result in 2nd still as long as Richmond beat Brisbane. If Brisbane wins WC can forget about top 2 if they lose to Richmond I think as Geelong will beat Carlton

So Richmonds reward for beating brisbane is a trip to Perth and if they lose they get a home final against geelong. Its the scenario we all saw coming when they first released the round 23 fixtures

Was checking out Lions form via a few portions of games. They lost to Freo, Carlton, Dons, Pies (1 more?), all of those we've beaten this season. We lost rnd 1 to them, but you'd have to think that was an aberration.
They also lost 2 games at the MCG and aren't familiar with finals pressure.
I noticed they back themselves to kick a few goals on the run from the 50 arc. Something we don't do so much.

Injured Pie spotted playing basketball under a fake name - http://m.afl.com.au/news/2019-08-14/injured-pie-spotted-playing-basketball-under-a-fake-name

Love the name he used :tearsofjoy:


It comes as the Pies battle turmoil at the selection table with 10 first-choice players currently sidelined through injury.

Fake claims 10 Collingwood players were involved in a betting scandal will be investigated by the AFL’s integrity department after an official Magpies request.
