Everyone is going to be boring and miserable and not be able to interact with each other and unable to cope with any sort of criticism.
Suicide rates will go through the roof.
All creativity will be stifled as nearly everything will be offensive.
Birth rates will go down cause guys will be to scared to even talk to chicks let alone root them, so will just watch porn on their phone, causing an unrealistic view of women.
There's gonna be tons of weirdo campaigners and serial killers cause everyone's so repressed and f**ked up.
It's gonna happen man.
With that kind of reach you could be rucking against Sandilands.

Weideman dead in front with 11 seconds to go to win the match for the Dees, shanks the kick, 2 point loss instead of 3 point win.

But, you get paid so much to play this game and teams don't dedicate anywhere near enough time to goal kicking, so you reap what you sow.

In fairness that is unbelievable that someone can get banned from the footy for saying "green maggot"
It's f**king insane and piss week.
If that happened to one of our members I'd hope the club would fight it and stick up for them.
I'd never buy another membership if they didn't.
But Richmond and the cheersquad handed down the ban, not the AFL

Went and checked the Tiggies board, said it was a conspiracy and that this "bias cint" shouldn't be a rising star judge...

View attachment 684246

Funny they were ****ting on him prematch last night for picking the Roos by one point... Turns out Brad was just being conservative with the margin :D:D

Could be worse though, found this gem...

So Essendon, thoroughly investigated, found guilty, dropped from finals, etc.

Geelong, thoroughly investigated, found innocent, no penalty. We weren't even the best team over the 2009 and 2011 seasons, so I guess that means St Kilda and Collingwood were drug cheats too.
Hawks in 2008 must have been smashing the stuff just for the one year.
That Hawks comedown in 2009 was something to behold though

Your right! I thought it was too unbelievable and pathetic to be true so thought it must of been the AFL.
But nup.

A Richmond cheer squad member was banned from sitting in the cheer squad for three matches after being found to have shouted: “be consistent, you green maggot” in a Tigers game last month.

Ha ha. If I ran a cheer squad that would be the first thing I would insist they learn.

Highlights from BigFooty's most delusional club board

If we continue to play North exclusively at their home ground into the future, this will have a dramatic effect on our overall record against that club. I'm not sure how the league can justify it. We have a record of 3 wins 7 losses against them since 2011 (i.e. since we've been finalists or close to). We're 16 wins from our last 50 games against a club that runs on the smell of an oily rag.
We’re about to enter a period where the tiges can’t watch their team at the G for five weeks of the season.

Round 17 starts our run of 7 at the G. Now some might argue you’ll take 5 weeks of not seeing any footy at the G if it means we get 7 straight but I think it’s an absolute pisstake to engineer a draw like this.
Some sensibility:
so wait are we admitting the G is our cheat ground?
followed by more dribble
How could a cavernous stadium like the G be a cheat ground when plenty of oppos attend?

Geelong have a massive advantage,95 percent locked in home fans and dimensions different to every other ground.
Plainly ignoring the fact that every home ground has different dimensions, and the only reason why oppos attend Richmond home games is because their 100k members are as fair-weathered as hawthorns' are pets.

Love how they bemoan "engineering" of the fixture without realizing how big of an advantage 7 games at the ground finals are played on, in the lead up to finals is.

They play 4 interstate teams, two fellow tenants (Collingwood and Hawthorn, I think) plus Carlton.

Now THAT is a serious advantage.

It is an absoloute dream run. If the AFL told us we could only play 7 games at KP but the other 4 games were home games at the MCG vs interstate opponents in the last 4 rounds of the season I'd jump at the chance. That is a ridiculously huge advantage coming into the finals.

West Brom,
Above is a very good honest effort, however it is inaccurate.

There are a few reasons why the Geelong Footy Club, gets a hard time from Richmond fans

Please allow me to proceed without prejudice, by way of enlightening you on this issue you all have raised.

Also please note, the below list is not ranked in importance.

1. Joel Selwood, the fact that he has been milking frees deliberately for more than a decade is tantamount to cheating.

2. The fact that you have received more than $100 million in government funding because you are in a marginal seat is a disgrace. Why should my taxes go to fix your football ground?

3. Dangerfield , you were just lucky he was from that area, you were gifted a massive advantage that you did not earn

4. Brad Scott, the most puncheable head in football. His finals record in deplorable since his first year, yet he acts so smug.

5. Because you always pumped us.

6. Gerald Whately , oh my god he makes me sick, he is such a pathetic fanboy, and afl lap dog

7. Steven Hocking, his appointment is in my view the biggest mistake the AFL has made in many years. Empowering him to make drastic big rule changes to our game without any research, just to justify his position and his wage.

8. The whining from the cats supporter base after we pumped you in the final. All the home game garbage, the fact that the fans couldn’t handle the tiger army up and about, just generally poor sports.


There’s more, but this is a good start
This might be some of the most nonsensical and inane thoughts I've read.

Let's roll through it

1. Please give us more specific reasoning for this? I see him as no different to any other player in the era.
2. Does the same apply to West Coast and Freo with their new stadium? Or the Adelaide Oval? Any MCG upgrade? Or do you want your tax dollars spent only things that directly affect you?
3. How did we not "earn" acquiring Dangerfield? I would say we earnt his signature more than the Tigers did Tom Lynch's.
4. I'll presume you went with the wrong coach as an error. How's Dimma's finals record?
5. The most honest point of the lot.
6. Plenty of Richmond hype girls in the media.
7. His appointment has nothing to do with Geelong. Remarkably Geelong do not appoint employees elsewhere.
8. "The home game garbage" is that the same as the noise from your supporter base about travelling to Kardinia Park for a home and away game? Why wasn't it an issue in 2012? or 2009?

I can't think of anything less appealing than taking on the Carlton job. Unless you are an established coach, like Clarkson, and you could take your own team of scouts/talent managers etc.

I don't think theres a coach around in the last 20 years right now that can fix Carlton if they can't clean out people ingrained in the club like SOS who seems to be doing his best to wreck the joint.
