Be delusional if it makes you feel better but it’s supporters like you that I’m embarrassed for.
As for opinions, the people on this board remind me of the leftist greens...if someone’s opinion is different to yours then belittle them because your opinion must be the right one.
I lean to the left ... what’s wrong with that?

It’s because I have one leg longer than the other

Anyway GS you need to lighten up

It's not about opinions mate you were wrong, read your post again you were the one who come up with another opinion and wrongly thought it was right. If you want conflict all the time go join the Army, you wont get anymore from me.

Trees are good it’s the tree huggers that are bad ,especially when they control governments that won’t let you cut them down and then people who have houses built too close die in bushfires.....greenies go real quiet when that happens.
doesn't get much more ignorant than this

Gaff had a pretty good year with some big numbers in certain games towards the end of the year. But again, he was part of a very accomplished midfield which included Priddis Embley , Shuey, Hurn, Rosa, 2 selwoods, Kerr , Cox and Nic Nat. I maintain that it is much easier for a young player to go well if they are 6-7th in the midfield pecking order, which Gaff was. Additionally the Cox Nic Nat combination was pretty lethal. LOB is having to shoulder the primary rotation at times and that is way more than any other first year midfielder is being asked to do.

Keep in mind that Gaff's nickname for that season was Kermit. This is because he would regularly start the game as the sub.

No. It's debate/discussion. If you post an opinion and a lot don't agree that's fine. You may then change your opinion based on evidence/opinion or stick to your guns. No issue either way.

I'm tired of people saying they can't have an opinion etc because a lot of people agree with them. NO ONE has said you can't have an opinion but never expect everyone to agree. I post things that people have a go at. That's a forum. Some people just seem to revert to being a victim when the majority disagree.

If it's too much don't post.

I am not sure that is true.

Just seems to me there are some posters who are not that tolerant of others views particularly in the Gameday and Autopsy threads.
......and there are some that overreact to everything. As long as the comments aren't personal I have no issue. If you're going to post on a forum like this you're going to have to accept that people will disagree and some stronger than others. If that doesn't suit then I suggest they don't post

But no one is saying can’t have an opinion

Fact is people won’t always agree .. particularly on an Internet forum

Those threads you mention above are loaded with emotion, but differing opinions in other threads create some great discussion.

I’ve never read on here no one can have an opinion .. that’s a big stretch
