    So Selwood is the 'most hated player in the AFL'? Gee, I must have missed something. So a 'ducker' is worse than a 'sniper'? Let me also ask you this, would you rather be the victim of a 'ducker' or a 'sniper'?

    On Shuey, it was nice to see him put on his backside quick smart after he had a go at Hayward after Will goaled, with Hayward then 'letting him know the score'......great stuff and yes, Shuey is also becoming a grub.

    I'd like to see changes to the too high rule.
    When I was a kid, it was 'round the neck' and basically applied to coathangers.
    I think if there is clearly no intent, or if the arm slide up over the shoulder in a tackle, it's play on.
    Unless there is no intent and the accidental contact was potentially harmful.
    Most of the time it's an arm sliding up, usually as the opposition player is ducking, or unintentionally ducking in their action to gather the ball.
    Most of the time there is no real danger of injury to the player.
    The difference between insanity and genius is measured only in success.

    Umpires cop a fair whack online, so credit where it's due.
    Yeah, fair. This is true.

    Selwood is MY most hated. I've often fantasised about overtaking Gill as head honcho and suspending Selwood for a year for bringing the game into disrepute. I DESPISE the bloke!!

    To answer your question, what would get me the most aggrieved is a ducker. A sniper will get his dues; recently, duckers have been rewarded. I hate it.
    C'mon Chels!

    If Heeney stays sound, he will make a huge difference to our chances. Absolute game changer with his marking, brilliant ball handling and vision. Almost every one of his disposals are telling.

    I read today that a sneaky person updated the Wikipedia page for the new Perth stadium and changed the owner of the stadium to Lance Buddy Franklin ????.

    Yeah, I tried posting a screenshot the other day but had my usual issues with image upload. You can view their work by looking at the old page versions, for example:

    Perth Stadium - Wikipedia

    Not that I approve of Wikipedia vandalism, but it's kind of funny
