McDonald will likely have a decent AFL career. My only concern is illness/injury stopping Phillips from his.Just back to Appt after the game. A few things, 1. Carltank supporter are a special breed. 2. McDonald May haunt us in our sleep for years. 3. Blakey is an absolute gun with ball in hand coming out, Swans academy can GAGF.

2023: Blues bank all on going deep in finals… recruit players left, right & centreBlues have been kissed on the dick with their draw, though.
By next week, they will have played last year's bottom seven sides (except for themselves, of course), and only one of the top four.
And of last year's finalists, they've jagged * and GWS, both of whom are rubbish this year.
Meanwhile, playing Melbourne means we'll have played all of last year's top six inside the first ten rounds.
Not sure how that happens....
He'll do a couple of good things (like pinch hitting in the ruck) and the commentary team will rave about it for weeks.Jack Silvagni must be one of the all time anonymous players. Cept for his surname.

I've never seen the AFL want to ram a player down our thoats as much as they do with silvagni. Post match interviews just because his dad's in the crowd. Half time segments with cripps.
Average footy player that has perfected the art of looking like he's given every inch of energy whenever he's near the ball.
This is actually a good question, Maverino.Why do you watch a sport you hate so much?
Agree with a lot of that. Not sure if it’s just getting older or what but like you I don’t watch nearly as much footy as I used to. (I do spend a lot of time watching my kids footy so that makes it harder) I do the ESPN Flexi footy tipping and had 100 points on Blues last night so it was worth watching.This is actually a good question, Maverino.
I ask myself the same thing.
THere was a time when I loved the game, thought it was easily best sport on the planet. Free flowing, exciting, skilful. I watched as much as I could.
Now I watch North games, grr, and just bits and pieces. Would have watched 15 minutes of last night.
In it's prime, AFL footy had a handful of main rules - in the back, holding the ball, too high, running too far and so on. We could complain about decisions, but at least we understood them.
Now we have dissent, contact below knees, ruck nominations, stand rule, protected area, insufficient intent, front on contact, chopping of the arms, etc. Most of which have added nothing to the game and sought only to make officiating a dog's breakfast.
And we have one umpire who is clearly not up to the level being selected as a PR stunt.
And then Kingy on 360 during week says not enough teams are scoring from defensive kick ins, and AFL needs to do something about that. Why????
It's not the same game I grew up watching, sadly. But it's in my blood and so I keep watching, but not like I used to.
