The latter, yeah agreed. The former, I mean, it was bad, but hardly the only time something like that has happened on the field. Was it worse than Wellingham on Simpson, Solomon on Ling, Gaff on Brayshaw, Grinter on Wallace, Plugger on Cavan? I don't think so. The follow up is why Carlton people will never forget it.He finished his career as a respected football player, but that act and the subsequent clapping to the incensed crowd as he jogged off the ground was as scumbag an act as you'll see.
I agree with your first sentence - it was awful - but the second doesn't really apply, because it's true of just about any whack on a footy field. I get your point, though.That Milburn his is still to this date one of the most cowardly things I've seen in a footy field.
If someone did the same thing outside a nightclub they'd be arrested and charged with assault.
Yeah I didn’t phrase that like I should’ve - just one of the absolute worst things I’ve seen in my time watching footy.I agree with your first sentence - it was awful - but the second doesn't really apply, because it's true of just about any whack on a footy field. I get your point, though.
Reminiscent of that time in 2011 Collingwood kicked 11 goals in the last twenty minutes of the game to turn a 23-point deficit into a 43-point win against the Crows.In terms of half a game this would be up there - sure the Brions were going for the threepeat but halfway through the second quarter Fev slotted a goal to put us up 50 to 16.
We were actually still 1 point ahead at the 15m mark of the 3rd quarter.
In the last quarter and a half the Lions put on a lazy FIFTEEN goals to win by 77 points
This is the dumbest ****. Nobody can criticise England because we speak English level dumb.Goodes used his "Australia Day" speech to condemn Australian whites, forgetting that, if not for the First Fleet coming and occupying this country, then there would be no VFL, and no game for Goodes to play, and make lots of money off. I think there would have been a few white men who concieved and devised breaking away from the VFA and forming the VFL in 1897, and it going on to being the biggest sport in Australia. So, if not for them, Goodes wouldn't have got the fame, fortune and accolades he ended up getting.
