It's ******* disgusting that he's plead guilty and yet won't see a minute in jail.

* me this system is broken.

Phillipou has had an interesting start to his AFL career. 😂

Seems Phillipou turned a few clubs off him with his over confidence bordering on arrogance.

You get the feeling he'd be disappointed not ending up at one of the glamour clubs.
I reckon he thought he was nailed on to go to essendon

The AFL really do love milking the fixture every year. Early December and we are still in, “we will tell you the Round 1 fixture now and the rest of the fixture list in the coming weeks.” mode. Bloody boring,

Strange first fixture for us - and also strange timing given what's happening in sport today, bit insecure perhaps haha.
They’re obsessed with being a 12 month product in the media landscape.

Not sure what’s weird about Suns away first up. Someone has to play them at Metricon round 1-2 each year.

Sure but as a Grand Finallist I thought we'd have a higher profile first fixture.

Any other year and I’d say the timing is just standard AFL weirdness. We have had the fixture drop on October 31st, December 20th and December 4th all in the last few years. It’s never a consistent thing every year where the fixture will drop during the same month.

This time around it does seem intentionally done to coincide with the publics attention on the big, bad World Cup and their own countries involvement in it.

We don't usually beat GC.

Oh right, your early year head to head was excellent against them but they’ve pulled it back lately. Coinciding with them turning into a decent team.

The oddity worth a raised eyebrow is that they've manufactured all 10 Victorian teams avoiding interstate travel.
With both Perth teams travelling across the country with no game Round 1 at Optus.

Think it's because of an Ed Sheeran concert.
