Your sarcasm meter may require a re-tune SoS. I suspect it was posted with tongue firmly in cheek.
I can see that there's a tongue in cheek element to the post so I'll take your counsel on the poster's intent.

But to ensure nobody misunderstands my position, I don't believe a word of anything that comes from the mouth of any football administrator from any club north of Racecourse Road, and also from the vast majority of any football administrators that are located south of there either.

Have they turned on the wee boy McKenna yet.

Imagine being home sick, jumping on a plane back to Ireland cause you don’t want to play for *, coming back cause you have a contract, booting off once again when lockdown was announced cause you’d rather be in Ireland than here with your * teammates - and then to top it all off a you get Coronavirus and possibly rule your teams whole backline out before they take on Carlton.
Not to mention halting the momentum of * undefeated start to 2020.

No wonder their supporters are in pain lol

I get and share the “F *” sentiment, but in this case, take into account we have Melbourne‘s Rd 1 draft pick.

We can be losers out of this if the GoDees win by 2 points and gain 5 positions on the ladder against a hamstrung *.

Several news reports claimed he participated in full contact training on Saturday morning. Some say the positive test occurred on Friday. * say there was a weight training session but they are not certain who was there and they expect to work out by today if any of their team were within breathing distance of McGregor. They also postulate that the test may have been a false positive. That position from *is unconvincing.

This fu** up is good news on 2 fronts.

We've got the Dees 1st pick and *'s 2 pick.

The Dees won't take on a depleted *, it will be rescheduled later in the year.


* will now have to play 1, maybe 2 games without half a dozen players and the Dees will have to play 3 games in a week at some stage.

Yeah this is fantastic. Would be perfect if carlton beat the * with a depleted line up and end up finishing above the dees because of it. The * vs dees game will be played later in the year.

There was a test but we don't know when it was, and we don't know if the test is legitimate, and we don't know who was at the training session and if we do know who was there, we don't know who was close enough to McKenna to get the virus, but we don't even believe he has the virus because we don't know if the test that we can't get a date on is actually correct

I said “unconvincing” but I really meant, “come on you lying campaigners, your bullshit is a ******* disgrace. Own it and take the consequences, and control your squad or fu** off!”

If it works out like that... 👍

I think its a little unfair that they single out some * players to be quarantined, what they should be doing is quarantining the whole squad. in fact if the AFL ever wanted to do the right thing by the AFL community, they should just banish this disgraceful, filthy, shameful and shambolic club altogether.

If you're reading this Gil, I have spoken to a good friend of mine and he said he has a spare Phantom Zone he can lend the AFL. Give me a call and I will give you his number. Lets do this as we all know the world needs a good news story.

How fortunate that the only player to come in close enough contact with McKenna is one who is not currently in their best 22.


PS. I hope this bloke at least gets a contract extension for carrying the can for more prominent teammates.
It is simply amazing isn’t it. I wonder if Saturday's training video has been handed over to ol’ mate Dean Wallace for safe keeping?

We have their second round pick as well. So if the Dee's win by two points but gain no real ladder advantage by seasons end then it benefits us.

It had to be James Stewart. He knew too much.
