    You make some good points. Despite being a bit of a knob Mark Robinson definitely has enormous passion for the game and knows his footy.

    Plus he called Huddo a "wanke*" on AFL 360. Worth you tubing that one :)

    I actually don't have a massive issue with any of the commentators but that could be my lack of 'footy nous' more than anything!

    One thing that annoys me is when there are blatantly incorrect umpiring decisions and yet the commentators make no comment.

    I did like Luke Darcy's call when Fantasia got the ball with 2 minutes to go streaming into goal. He knew Fanta would kick and expressed genuine passion and excitement. I can see why people don't like him though.

    17yo, 179kg, 2.06m...Not that it would have ever been a realistic chance but how'd you like that guy plonked at FF?, AFL's loss;)

    "Faalele’s mum, Ruth, revealed Daniel is just happy playing a sport where he doesn’t feel guilty roughing up opponents.

    She told Sports Illustrated earlier this year her son became seriously disenchanted playing rugby union and AFL in Melbourne because of the complaints made against him for his physical presence on the field."

    My old chair creaks whenever I sit down in it, he's roughly 95kg heavier than me so imagine just trying to find somewhere to sit down at times:eek:

    Why bother building a stadium with a roof if you're not going to use it?

    No you weren't, you whined about giving up a 40 point lead and just getting over the line. Your first 2 posts in the autopsy thread were whinges, now you're crowing about how good a win it was?!?

    I ******* hate the roof being open, both at the ground and when watching on tv. Just ******* close it.

    How hard is it for journalists to call Aussie rules 'Australian rules' and keep the term AFL for actual league players?

    I actually prefer it open when at the ground. Makes it less sterile of a venue. It is an outdoor sport after all.

    The AFL probably encourages it, brand awareness and all that. It's annoying though, you don't know what they mean without qualifying statements.

    Sydney's record at Etihad is amazing. It's pretty much become their home away from home
