I feel like people have completely forgotten what was expected of St Kilda pre-season. They were as popular a pick as any for the spoon.
There’s positives in there somewhere, Battle wasn’t going to make it as a forward but looks far more natural in defence, Marshall is now a top 10 ruckman in the AFL, Wilkie, Hind and Parker are solid depth at worst and have scope to be far more than that and Max King is genuinely special.

The issue is that I don’t think Richardson is much chop at all and their big name acquisitions are not delivering

I think we broke GWS last week much to our detriment. Brissy’s spot in the 8 was one I was hoping would be tenuous and up for the taking.

Are forums not communities?
Not the same as the traditional definition of people living together, so I would say no.

Think I’d rather donate money to someone to help feed their kids or protect them from violence, than someone getting a ******* laptop to post footy related material. First world problems hey

This is the equivalent of complaining about governments spending money on stadiums when they could spend it on schools and hospitals.

These forums can be an important way for people to connect and engage with others.

If anyone on our boards ever needed equipment to do that (or any other life reason) because and they genuinely can't afford it, I would be happy to contribute to that myself.

Brisbane are legit if they win this.

I hope they have some success to promote more attacking football instead of this defensive brand that everyone plays.
Seems to be going very unnoticed.

Brisbane are what we were supposed to be. Top 4 bolters
And we are what they are supposed to be. Knocking on the door of finals, but not quite there.

:(
its an indictment they jumped us.
