    incident at the end of the Swans/Pies match marred my enjoyment of a vintage Champ performance

    his reaction illustrates his class just as much as his performance in the first turn

    collingwood president, after vehemently criticising the incident on friday night, thought it'd be a good idea to say that goodesy ought to do promotional work for the king kong musical currently being staged in melbourne Fuck it.

    convinced that the cats can turn up at the ground at 3/4 time these days and win. still, sloppily accounting for the giants is probably cause for concern

    ripping game on friday night, definitely worth the watch if you are able to bruegel (particularly 2nd half). Swans have looked strong the last few weeks.

    not sure whether you've been following the essendon saga bruegs but it's all finally come to a head today, the AFL has barred them from playing finals, Hird can't coach for 12 months and no draft picks for a few years + $2m fine. 4-0 

    the race is well and truly on for 9th! richmond must be spewing that 2013 is finally the year that a 9th placed team will play finals

    jesus, I didn't realise the punishment was going to be that big. Carlton faves for 8th spot now?

    I'm not liking the Swans chances of defending the premiership. we haven't got the momentum to hang with the big dogs (or Cats) atm and the injuries are stacking up.

    it's kind of crazy given that no player has actually been issued an infraction notice for testing positive to any drug (though jobe watson did admit to being injected w/ something on live television). the whole program seemed to be highly suspicious and very irresponsible, but i'm still sceptical that all these charges have been laid and punishments dished out on the basis of an interim report - the AFL could have handled it a lot better.

    if carlton beats port they make the eight. if carlton loses - then there are a number of scenarios that could play out - brisbane or north could make it, provided the other loses, but brisbane would have to beat the cats and north would have to beat the pies, both tough games. adelaide can make it if each of carlton, brisbane and north lose and it beats the eagles by a LOT - the same goes for the eagles if they beat adelaide.

    in any case it hardly matters because no team has won the flag from outside the top 4 since the 90s. sydney have been strong and consistent all season but injuries have hit them hard recently. hawthorn are unquestionably a great side but still get the wobbles when they meet geelong. i wouldn't be at all surprised to see a maiden fremantle premiership in 2013. should be an entertaining finals series - it's almost a shame that i'll miss all of it as i'll be in europe!

    Roughhhh result today. Followed proceedings amongst fellow Strayans at a Montmartre venue named "Café Oz".

    Guess they were going to have to beat us eventually. And for the objective spectator it was un match magnifique

    Lyon the master of antisocial football. Pretty unlucky to never get a flag w/ the saints but perhaps he will with the purple haze

    Managed to find a dodgy stream for the GF. Well played hawks. Pretty satisfied by seeing Ballantyne's floggish work in the last quarter.

    ^ missed this post. Pretty incredible how the Swans just pulled the rug out from GWS' feet. Kind of sours the Hawthorn premiership celebrations, but I doubt you and other Sydney supporters will be terribly worried about that.

    I haven't read too much about the logistics of the deal. The Age (Melbourne daily) now only lets you read 10 articles per month for free online, so I haven't caught up with the analyses of Caroline Wilson, Rohan Connolly and Greg Baum etc. But I would assume the AFL scrutinised the legalities carefully. The 9 year thing is I guess the main anomaly here. I think it unlikely that he'll be the equal of the player he is now when he's 33-35, but evergreens like Brent Harvey and Dustin Fletcher just keep on keeping on, so if he's motivated enough by the "Sydney culture", then perhaps the full term of the contract will prove fruitful.

    I would question whether Sydney really need him there if they already have Tippett, but given how brilliantly Roughead and Franklin have worked over the past few years in tandem, it cannot hurt to have him in the forward line. Also, he's an incredible player. Mercurial, but delivers more often than not, and spectacular to watch in full flight.

    Is it true that they reduced fighting in Australian Rules Football by instruction the refs to put their whistles away and let play continue around the tussle?

    Tonight we restart!

    Predictions for this year:

    1 Fremantle
    2 Sydney
    3 Hawthorn
    4 Geelong
    5 North Melbourne
    6 Collingwood
    7 Richmond
    8 Essendon
    9 Adelaide
    10 Port Adelaide
    11 Gold Coast
    12 Carlton
    13 West Coast
    14 Western Bulldogs
    15 Melbourne
    16 Brisbane
    17 St Kilda
    18 GWS

    Interested to see whether Tippett and Buddy cramp each others' style. I find Fremantle's playing style somewhat dull, but Ross Lyon and Pavlich seem like good blokes so I wouldn't be against seeing them take the spoils this year.

    I feel like I am missing a joke here but I'd say that's a myth. Any melees or tussles that arise are only ever resolved by umpire intervention (as well as more cool-headed players entering the fray and encouraging others to calm down).

    Oh I guess you're right that it's a myth. I heard it brought up as an example of how to curb fighting in hockey.

    Was just coming in here to ask your thoughts about this. I'm super excited for the season but I'm kind of apprehensive about how the Buddy dynamic will play out.
