Probably mostly random unrelated posts about Freo / bump from 4+ years about Ross Lyon
I know he doesn't come in this thread so I can acknowledge his existence. For the past 5 years or so he finds every post of mine and likes it then quotes it or tags me - I don't even read them tbh. I took great pleasure in laugh reacting to his posts in the autopsy thread today.

Ignore list related?

I tried to get into that thread to get a genuine understanding of where opposition supporters ranked the Eagles, but the thread just quickly turned into a b*tch fest.
A thread in which Gunnar is the most frequent poster has turned into a b*tch fest? I find that hard to believe.

If you've got a throw in from the goal circle, have one player on the outside of the circle right up where it meets the boundary line to receive the pass. The GA/GS (whoever took the throw in) immediately steps in and around the player on the mark, turning their body towards the line to shield the ball, and takes the pass back. This is something you can practise at training until you've got it down pat at a good speed.

They should also be reminded that the contact rule penalises the player who initiates the contact (i.e., the person moving). This means that if you stand in someone's way, and they run into you, it's your ball (if the umpires are watching). You should face your opponent while you're doing this so you can see where they're moving, although if it's outside and sunny (and the sun's in the right direction), you can use their shadow. The key to this is quick lateral movement. Take small steps back if you have to, but be where they're going before they get there. Even if they don't infringe (and they usually get so frustrated that they do), you're holding up a player from getting involved in a sport where you can only hold on to the ball for three seconds. If it's a GD doing it to a GA, that also takes a shooter out.

GK ALWAYS takes throw ins/free throws in the defensive third. They're the only ones who can't lead beyond that line, so there's no point having a player who can standing still in that zone. Whoever is closest, whoever wins the free, they put the ball on the ground and the GK comes up to take it.
OK, so why bomb it up the right all the time then?

I love dealing with people on Gumtree:

"Hey mate, have you still got it? If so I'll come and pick it up tonight."

"Yep still got it, what time were you thinking?"

It can be a painful process.

I like when people ask if furniture, that you have clearly provided dimensions for will fit in their vehicle...often not even telling you what said vehicle is.

I had an electronic keyboard on there for $150 once. Guy messages me and offers $50. I replied "lol no" and closed the conversation.

Digital age is great for ease in this case, but it also allows people to be remorseless ********s. Had people just not show up altogether which infuriates me just thinking about it.
