Common occurrence, especially v Collingwood.

I propose - give Collingwood a wild card into finals regardless of ladder position, so umps don't have to continually stick their tongues up their muscat week in week out. AFL happy, ferals happy........

Good to see Collingwood wearing their clash guernsey of white and black , which is different from their normal black and white.

Should Essondon have had a free kick after the swan player climbed the goalpost?

The rules are quite clear. YES!

But as usual, rules for some, completely others when Essendon are concerned.

The new 6-6-6 rule has made no difference to the matches, still low scoring and a floating scrum .

Forgive me, but what advantage does this give the team on match day?

youre able to attract better players who want the limelight and the extra $$$$. financially healthier clubs tend to perform better over the long term.

    Fri night footy - which your club hijacked from the Kangas
    ANZAC Day game which you and the Pies have criminally monopolised
    Dream-time game at the G
    Good Friday game

Friday night footy? :lol:

Anzac Day - I noticed other fixtures on this day recently, so go lobby the AFL.

I gather you're a Labor supporter too. Want the wealthy clubs to prop up the poor ones always. Draft concessions and salary caps not enough?

attack the person when losing the argument....whose playbook have you been reading????

BTW - theres no way I would want the crows subsiding the Ferals which we have in the past to save them from themselves....so there goes your theory about political persuasion...

What personal attack? Being called a Labor supporter? :lol: I think you're being a bit too precious there.

You still have not shown any actual evidence why playing Anzac Day v Collingwood is in some way an advantage to obtain 4 points versus any other fixture during the same round. In fact, if anything, when it falls on a midweek day, it's a disadvantage as the next opponent usually gets a bigger rest than we would.

I heard you the first time.

My response was to someone who asked about the rule climbing and moving the goalpost.

The rule is quite clear, but it's implementation was ignored. Why?

If that happened to Collingwood or Port, you'd have McGuire or Kochie going mental demanding a replay or result reversal and umpires sacked.

wonder if the following will make the news????



Quote:
Two more men have been charged over the violent brawl that broke out at the MCG on Saturday.

The latest arrests and charges mean police have now narrowed their search on one remaining Carlton fan.

Police arrested two Rosebud men, aged 41 and 20, this morning and later charged them with affray.

Both men have been bailed to appear at the Melbourne Magistrates Court on August 16.

It follows the arrest of 36-year-old Diggers Rest man earlier this week.

Crowd violence is back in the spotlight after multiple brawls and reports of poor behaviour at the weekend.

3AW was flooded with calls from disgusted and upset supporters following Collingwood’s 19-point win over arch-rival Carlton.

One fan, Ross, said he’d “never be going to the football again” after being thrown to the ground.

“I’m sick and tired of this,” he said.

Another man was also seen “relieving himself” on a police car while leaving the MCG. :shock: :lol:

There were also reports of spitting and children crying as they were caught up in the mayhem.

Robin, one of those to call 3AW, said she spent the last five minutes of the match trying to break-up fights between fans.

She said it happened in the Carlton members area.

“There were four, full-on fights where people were knocked out,” she said on 3AW Football.

“Security didn’t react quick enough so members of the public had to get in to stop these fights.

- 3AW Melbourne

It has, but doubt anywhere near the front pages (as would a bloke throwing a hotdog at an A-League match)
