Re: WHAT IS THIS YES/NO VOTE ABOUT?

It was an Essendon v Norf 2000 Qualifying final like smashing. Some bizarre voting patterns if you look at the electorate by electorate. The electorate that I'm in (Holt) is a safe ALP seat and the result was 50.7% to 49.3% in favour. Flinders is my old electorate and is a sale Lib seat and it was 7...

Re: Crameri maybe back?

I wouldn't be against us taking him as a rookie if he was still available at that time.

I have admiration for his character. Gordon pressured him to take a early guilty plea and he wouldn't. Stuck with the other 33 players.

I'd like him to get picked up by someone.

Re: WHAT IS THIS YES/NO VOTE ABOUT?

I voted yes as I don't think people should be treated as 2nd class citizens because of who they fall in love with. I voted yes. But are they treated as 2nd class citizens? If you are excluded on the basis of who you fall in love with then I'd argue that you are treated as a 2nd class citizen.

Re: Adelaide v Richmond Grand Final

I don't care who wins.

I was at the game yesterday and it was the loudest crowd I've ever heard. 90000 people singing that great theme song. Only 2 other clubs could do what Richmond fans did yesterday and that's us and Collingwood.

Makes you realise how crap we have been over the last 15 years

Re: Agony & Ecstasy

Derek was playing poorly. He had 15 touches in the 3 finals before the grand final and had only kicked one goal.

The decision to drop him on form was justified. Flood was extremely unlucky to miss.

Toby Greene. A .000000000000001% chance of ever happening but I would love it.

We need quality midfielders. Either through the draft or trade for some.

Very sad.

One of the funniest things I've seen was in The Games when he realized the 100mt track was short.

Cracking day of cricket yesterday. It was riveting.

If we can get another 100 today we should win the match.

I don't think anyone saw that coming.

O'Keefe - Wow. Amazing. What a performance.

Smiths 100 will go down as one of his best ever.

Starcs runs in both innings were crucial.

Re: Australian Tour of India 2017

I like Renshaw. Puts value on his wicket.

When are we going to give up on the Marsh experiment? I would have played Maxwell as the all rounder.

Shocking pitch.

Re: Time to Re-Open Asylums

I don't think you can blame the cops . They couldn't open fire in the city's busiest intersection and if they did it would have been a tad harsh to shoot someone for doing doughnuts. Surely it couldn't be predicted that the bloke would start to deliberately run people over. How he got bail is anothe...

Re: Pick 1

I still think people are guessing. The club are holding the cards very close to there chest.

I think we need a goalkicking mid but will put my faith in the recruiting team to make the correct call, so I won't be upset on who we take.
