Guess old mate missed the bit where as sh*t as we have been we've won more games than Carlton since 2000.
Carlton and Essendon fans still clearly the most deluded in the land. There’s a Blues fan on the Top 10 Mids thread on the MB mashing the dislike/disagree button on everyone’s posts. Reading between the lines it seems to be because not everyone rates Paddy Cripps as the best mid in the comp right now. Some of these posts include Cripps but at #6 or so. One of them is mine which merely states the top 10 mids in the AFLCA votes.

So if there was a goal line camera the only possible outcome is that it was touched before the ball crossed the line. There's no way a goal line camera would prove otherwise. That's bomber bias nuffy level.

I'm endlessly fascinated by Norf's LDU thread:

We haven't even scratched the surface of LDU's capabilities. His got to get there, but the glimpses we have seen, on a f’ed up preparation, is of a generational midfield talent.

I wouldn't swap him for anyone out of his draft class.

Saints fans keep suggesting that they were robbed of the 4 points. What if a better goal line camera provided clear proof that the ball was across the line?!? Would you be screaming for the cameras then?

The melts on their board were fun to watch. A lot about how we are a "rabble" and it's embarrassing the lose to us. That is the saltiest type of post.

After another timid 13 disposal game playing against kids his age and younger in the GC side, a Norf poster bravely runs to LDU's defence:

Surely he’s being instructed to not injure himself to purposefully get some continuity in his game. You can see he 100% just sits back at the moment......no one plays like that. He’s building. Has to be.
If this 'generational talent' in the midfield is being instructed to hang back and try and get cheap touches as to not injure himself then Shaw is starting to smell a lot like Neeld

I love it, saints have lost to North freo and Melbourne all 'trash' teams but that couldn't possibly mean saints aren't that good.

Also being listening to sen and was the same on the footy show. Cane cornes keeps banging on the arc decision goes on to say I think they got it right but I think it was touched. Is he being deceiving or is he stupid. Yes of course it was touched the arc said so, the question was over the line or not. No one is pulling him up on it either.

Just heard him clarify he said he thought he touched it before the line. Then he flip flopped he said feel sorry for the saints I wonder what dougal howard would say. Getting hard to listen to now.

Love the content, but stop directly quoting the posters when you're doing it.

I can't believe they all think he's going to be the best midfielder in his draft. Ahead of Rayner when he goes into the midfield, Andy Brayshaw, Adam Cerra, Hunter Clark and Tim Kelly lol.

He's probably only just top 5 to pull on the jumper in last 20 years.

Martin
Rance
Richardson

Cotchin.

Could make a case for Matthew knights, although I think he retired 2003 or something.

Very good player, old cotch, but the fact he's only been AA once, (7 or 8 years back) and the lack of consistency through his career until the past 3 years... Very bizarre statement

Any chance that poster would have been the one saying Pickett should be eligible for the rising star this year post 2019 gf?

I hate Cotchin as a bloke, he seems like a real weird unit.

But he's a great captain and has changed his game over the last 4 or so years to become the ultimate team player that makes others around him much better. Gotta respect that.

Would love Brayshaw to actually develop into a similar player. Doesn't need to be the star but does the team thinks extremely well, feeds the ball out to others in better positions, tackles like a maniac and is really hard over the ball.

Amongst all the furor over the Petracca goal review. The forgotten detail was that he clearly took a mark 30m out directly in front that wasn't paid.
And lets say it was touched before it crossed the line, that doesn't automatically mean they still score another goal as they weren't able to get it out of defense easily. If we're going to assume things we should all just assume that they turn it over 15 seconds after the kick in and we score a goal, they never score theirs and we win by two goals.

Its just dumb logic by them, the behind fundamentally changes everything. But try explaining that to mouth breathers.

This guy is a dyed in the wool Saints fan who pretends to be neutral. Does a rolling AA and hasn’t had Trac all year; fits Brad Hill and Betts into his Team of the Week but no Trac.

Also did these:


The only reason i follow him on FB is because it's piss funny out how he fails to be neutral

Exactly, it wasn't the last play of the game. It'd be great if some 'lost' footage mysteriously surfaces showing it was clearly touched and should've been a point and therefore vindicates all their angst, but we would obviously still keep the 4 points, that would make this whole thing so much nicer

If that happened they should donate 4 extra points for all the bitching and whinging.
