Post by: Bird on March 05, 2022, 10:17:13 PM
less than 2 weeks away.... :D

Early predictions...
Bumblers, Saints, hawks, west ghost to be bottom 4
Sydney, dogs, Port and Lions to be top 4

Carlton to lead many games by lots and still lose each one they score the first goal of game.

Yeah, lost our form. A lot of the more senior players had run out of legs. The reign is over.


But I have to say, have watched a few games this season, and I feel the umpiring is at its all time worst,  and its all across the board! Surely they are getting a bonus in their pay packet for Shit decisions and for every 50 paid??

Richmond lost their Mojo the day Mrs. Hardwick was ousted for a younger version.
She was like a surrogate mother to over half of the playing group, some now in their late 20's early 30's., and still is.
It created a lot of division within the club.

yea your not the only one thinking this...
The holding the ball thing kills me and has for ages - yet they make it harder for ump's... Some people get to do 5x 360's - others <2 seconds and done... I'd get rid of the rule 100% all together

Spot on Pottsy.
Several times the commentary questioned the umpiring.
I understand everyone is human, on field decisions can be called wrong, with the cameras focused on every second of the game?
We all love a fast flowing game, even if we are on the wrong side of play.

It's consistently wrong though this season. And I'm sure the umps get a bonus for every 50m they dish out.
The irony is, their sponsor, specsavers!

Already the question is who will be a worthy challenger for the Dees in the GF-
https://www.msn.com/en-au/sport/other/afl-why-melbourne-will-remain-unbeaten-leading-into-the-bye/ar-AAW1JhJ
Well they could have a bad run with injuries or Covid at the wrong time but their side is a very young one to have that GF winning feeling under their belt.

My tip to meet the Dees in the GF is Brisbane- https://www.flashscore.com.au/afl/australia/afl-2021/
Maybe the young Carlton in 2023 Bird as they're still a bit green compared to the Lions but there's no doubt the game is getting younger.
Title: Re: AFL 2022
Post by: prodigyrf on April 12, 2022, 01:03:43 PM
....and if you're going to knock off the Dees you'll need to understand the importance of the 6-6-6 rule and why they're so devastating at killing you off in a quarter of footy-
https://www.afl.com.au/news/121022/know-the-new-rules-6-6-6-50m-penalties-kick-in-rule-explained
You can't flood to stop the dominance at centre bounces anymore and with clear possession out of the centre and the skills of modern AFL players it quickly becomes a training drill with scoreboard blowouts.

Scott's made a right mess of it, I can't see what was wrong with the rules 2 years ago.

You should be able to question a Shit decision.
The latest high contacts are rediculous, so if you duck into the ball, it's a high?
These clowns want respect, then do your bloody job properly.

Not a fan of the swans at all, but a bit of a fan of McCartins knowing how hard life is being a type 1 diabetic, but then his concussion history on top is a real kick in the guts.

this could be a record score!


WEST Coast has hit "unprecedented times" with coach Adam Simpson entering the AFL health and safety protocols and only 22 players available for Saturday night's clash with the Brisbane lions.

The Eagles confirmed on Thursday morning that Simpson would miss the game, while revealing eight staff and players are currently in protocols, including round seven debutant Greg Clark.

On Wednesday afternoon the club had confirmed its WAFL side had been forced to have its game against East Fremantle on Saturday postponed due to a lack of availability, unable to meet the minimum requirement of three AFL-listed players.

Country spirit  :cup:



BEECHWORTH coach Tom Cartledge has paid tribute to Wahgunyah's players and volunteers who continue to fight each week to keep the club alive.

The Covid ravaged Lions were on the receiving end of the biggest flogging in league history as the were spanked 66.36 (432) to 0.1 (1) at Wahgunyah on Saturday.

The 431 point caning eclipsed Dederang-Mt Beauty's 63.12 (390) to 5.2 (32) win over Wahgunyah in round two this season.

"It's a tough situation for everybody and one that you don't want to see any club suffer," Cartledge said.

"We 100 per cent sympathise with Wahgunyah and their plight at the minute.

"We have got the utmost respect for the players and volunteers who front up each week, just so the club can survive.

"The club was Covid ravaged on the weekend and could have easily forfeited the match.

"But for them to get a side up is a testament to the club's fighting spirit."

DAVID Noble will step down from his role as North Melbourne coach on Tuesday, midway through a season that has delivered just one win from 16 games.

Noble and the club reached the decision after a series of meetings on Monday, in the wake of North's loss to Collingwood on Saturday, which was its 14th defeat in a row

The decision will be announced at a media conference at Arden Street on Tuesday, where Noble is expected to attend.
