Hey, new here.

Other than obviously it being ******* bullshit tribunal logic, how does Tex get a fine and Campbell is out for a week?
Welcome - there's a reason that thread is called "MRP Lotto". The only consistency is their constant manifest unfairness to Jack Ziebell.

Essadern have lost of their JLTs and don't look wildly impressive - yet even as the Cats were doing them nicely, the commentators were literally talking about which teams will fall out of the eight to make way for them.

Then, Stringer - the most overrated player in the game - does one of his lazy, selfish efforts where he hangs out the back, this time he got the ball and instead of thinking it through and kicking the goal or sharing, went the mug lair goal hog option and kicked it INTO a Geelong player on the goal line.

While this is happening DERWAYNE is chuntering on about "STRINGER! OH HE'S GOT ALL THE TRICKS, HE'S AN EXCITEMENT MACHINE!"

Jeez they get talked up so much on very little evidence.

I'm not sure the coach is the man to take them anywhere.

Why on earth are *essendon being used as one of the major examples of top teams in the 7 pre-season build up ad?

They're shit and haven't done anything in years.
Probably because despite all of that the club has a shitload of supporters and they are trying to appeal to the masses.

But literally every other club hates them for the drug scandal. Even if you used a smaller club, less people would scoff.

Was enjoying a late afternoon kip on the chaise lounge and awoke just in time to catch a boundary throw in Bris V melb. The little umpire hurled the ball further than both opposing rucks imagined and it was swooped on by a Bris mid after had cleared the two rucks. Bam whistle blown, pinged for not being a nominated ruck in the contest. I just rolled over and went back to sleep.

FFS this game is becoming as dodgy as those reality tv programs.

Like Snake said about Derwayne... They're all in the business of selling quarter pounders to morons.

The ******* around they're doing with the rules is really wrecking the game. Did you see the two 50's in the North vs Port game today. FFS. ******.
