A tale of two philosophies…
What a round of football! Three great games, three big upsets, and really only Sydney failed to come to the party. The difference between finals football and home and away […]
I feel uneasy about my predictions and I haven’t even hit ‘publish’ yet.
A strong emphasis on goal kicking midfielders, the struggles of the Tigers and the Eagles, and in-game and post game nonsense this week. Winners Joel Selwood and his Goal Scoring […]
A massive round with plenty of talking points. The Giants grabbed their first win. The Cats and the Hawks both lost. Richmond all but cemented their first finals birth since 2001. The Suns and Eagles put on a show. Collingwood eviscerated Essendon, and Angus Monfries pulled out his own ball of the century.
Damn you Angus.
Introducing Dayne Steeleswan to the world.
A week that saw the Swans have 51 scoring shots. They had more scoring shots than their opponents had total points. They had a lot is what I am saying.
Three rounds worth of winners and losers here. This article is bigger than Luxembourg. You might want to stop after the winners section and make base camp. Head for the summit […]
The AFL’s interference at Melbourne is fraught with danger.
If you are in a rush, here is a quick synopsis. Round 12: Carlton squandered another opportunity. Everyone else got thumped.
Bye weeks? Bronko Nagurski didn’t get no bye weeks…
Brent Harvey played his 350th, Fremantle won on the road, the Bombers fell to the Swans, and Ablett shone brighter than Geelong’s new lighting. All really irrelevant though. Richmond are going to win the flag. Haven’t you heard?
Is Winners and Losers this week just a thinly veiled way for an Adelaide fan to talk about Adelaide?
There were loads of talking points to come out of round five. ANZAC Day, an enthralling contest between the Hawks and the Roos, the Tigers stumbling at the death again, West Coast’s ongoing struggles and Port’s ongoing triumphs. There was fierce debate about goal umpire positioning, the review system, and Shane Mumford’s facial hair. ACL injuries abound, and Ahmed Saad takes more time to walk into goal than Phileas Fogg takes to traverse the world.
A round that belonged to two players, Joel Selwood and Travis Cloke.
If Geelong is a Krueger, Voorhees and Myers hybrid, then the Demons are the annoying teenager who dreams of camping in remote locations on Halloween.
A round full of both upsets and results of destiny (I’m looking at you Geelong).
Wanted: Somebody to kick a goal
Spent about as much time in the hospital as they did on field in 2012.
A friendly reminder that they, not Hawthorn, won the flag last year.
You must be below six foot to play in our forward line.
Ninth. They’re going to finish ninth.
Over three thousand words about Port Adelaide… I need to shower.
Good against the bad and middling sides, often found wanting against the better ones.
More than a decade of failure documented within.
Wait, they didn’t win last year?
Can we build a time machine and fast forward five years?
The good news for the Suns is they have Gary Ablett Jnr. The bad news for the Suns is human cloning is not yet legal.
Why won’t you die?
You know when adults play games against their children, and they don’t try defensively and let the kids score? Ross Lyon defends anyway.
What were the dinosaurs like Mr Fletcher?
First there was Ali v Frazier. Now there is Malthouse v Collingwood.
Topics of discussion include “How to defy the numbers and fail anyway”, “Jarrad Waite: better version of Wayne Carey?”, and “Alien v Predator v Judd”.
Since finishing sixth in their first season under coach and club legend Michael Voss in 2009, the Lions have finished 13th, 15th and 13th. In AFL circles, this is referred to as bad.
On-field = great. Off-field = more inept than the criminals in Home Alone.
New rules that fix problems created by other new rules. Rinse and repeat.
A friend of mine was in a hip hop music video. I could probably get you Kanye tickets now.
Einstein said the definition of insanity was doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Both the Crows and I could learn from this.
