After the horrific death of George Floyd, disaster has struck again...

Jacob Blake was shot multiple times by police.

The NBA players have decided to boycott, demanding change...

Will the AFL players follow suite?
demanding change... WHAT CHANGE?.. Is it that coppers ought not cannot shoot anyone of any colour or ethnicity?


Should it be different (say both knees? or none at all ) for those nasty whitey's.... just to be totally racist?

When was the last Ozzie black fella shot?

When was the last white USA person shot?

What about Russians getting poisoned ... does the AFL comp stop... just to SOMEHOW to magically "change it"?

Or is is just a farkin ..... HOT AIR and woke SJW BS! ????

Clearly some critics of Scomo's US sucking up is smart play if the AFL players are following suit.

That will require you to sit in cross legged in focused lotus position for 5 minutes humming "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" - AC /DC to get your required fantasy "change".

Let me know how that goes?

But I should feel something telepathically (ooshy gooshy nice) ? Yes?

Wasn't it only a few months ago when these same players (looking at you Lebron) critized an NBA GM for speaking out about Chinas oppression of the Hong Kong people?

= said:
"James told the room that it was too much for the players to take on in that moment — to explain a complicated issue with racial, socioeconomic and geopolitical layers while visitors in China," he is said to have added.

On Tuesday evening, James said it was his belief that Morey was “either misinformed or not really educated on the situation” with the NBA and China and insisted that the Rockets general manager hadn’t properly considered the repercussions of his words. "So many people could have been harmed, not only financially but physically, emotionally, spiritually." he said. (ESPN reported earlier Tuesday that James and others had lost lucrative endorsement deals and appearances as part of the fallout.)
Seriously, can these hypocrites not stay consistent with their message ?

Absolutely zero respect for the NBA and NFL. None.

Will never watch any games again.

Tennis player Naomi Osaka is now boycotting too.

Expect most major sporting leagues to follow suite — AFL included.
That was an event in the US though, which makes a bit more sense than Australian players, playing in an Australian Football League, that Americans don't care about, boycotting games to try to make a statement about a totally different country needing to take action.

Did you see the bodycam footage of George Floyd?

Nothing to protest or riot about at all. He was high on drugs, resisting arrest for several minutes and claiming he couldn’t breathe way before he was even on the ground.
It's just a coincidence he died after 10 mins of getting choked in the neck. Says more about the policing in the states that he stated he couldn't breathe and then they proceeded to choke him to death.
