    The only other person I know who uses the expression

    ‘that went out with buttoned up boots”

    is my Scottish Father in Law and he’s 91.

    I think it was great Gill was meeting with coaches. It's should be all coaches, and equal amount of time.

    Only met with his close friend as he described him at the time. If it was a fair dinkum ethical competition, he would have been fired.

    Because Hawthorn are the only team screwed by the umpires??? Delusional......

    Just saw this headline on the AFL website:

    'It's the wrong decision ... let's just call it what it is'
    Why Clarko needs another coffee with Gill, how the Suns almost blew it, Carlton's mistakes, the underappreciated Eagle, plus more. WATCH AAA


    Another coffee?!! WTF? It seems it's accepted as normal down here in Victoria.....sure they might be 'having a joke' but it's a @@@@ing sick one that massages acceptance for what was/is a clear 'conflict of interest'.

    They just don't get it! Never once have they said Horse should 'have a coffee' with Dil.....because they just don't see anything outside of a Victorian point of view.

    I think "Mark Of The Year" so far may now be with Harry Himmelberg of GWS down at the Cattery on Saturday. It was Nick Reiwoldt at
    the SCG 2004 type stuff.... add him to the list of excellent footballers from north of the border also (he's from Canberra).

    The fact they think it's funny confirms corrupt Boys Club. Caro given honorary token membership as a lot of her stories are spoonfed to her from AFL

    Titus nails it yet again!

    The Monday Knee Jerk Reaction: AFL Round Four - Titus O'Reily | Don’t have faith in yourself

    "The AFL’s rule changes to improve scoring have surprisingly resulted in less scoring.

    Who could have guessed that these rule changes wouldn’t achieve their stated aims? Well, every single footy fan.

    Who would have thought that testing the new rule in two VFL games between lowly teams wouldn’t be the ‘extensive testing’ the AFL said it was?

    I wonder what the AFL would do? Perhaps a host of new rule changes could sort it out."


    Spot on. He should be running the game.

    ....and this one: "If Carlton were a non-Victorian team, the ‘which Melbourne club will Sam Walsh end up at’ stories would be flying thick and fast." For a Victorian, he really does understand the actual realities of this Vic-centric league/media set up.

    Bravo Titus! Keep seeing and exposing the big picture.

    Should be lead journalist of mainstream footy media in Melbourne. You could create a Utopia like comedy about the AFL. Material for many episodes already exists. Clown show.

    The poor quality of play and low scores this year show what a muppet show the AFL is. Steve Hocking - got sick of seeing him last year, a raft of rule changes and poor quality umpiring have sunk the game to new levels, where art thou Steve Hocking? Embarrassed to show your face you $1mill a year muppet

    BF, happy for readers to interchange muppet with your use of clown :-)

    Hocking- how to stuff up a game that didn't need changing. Don't expect any mea culpas. Bozo. We should have a range of words 707!

    Dangerfield fined.

    After some thought Dusty's original two week ban should have been retained, I think Dangerfield is a very lucky player to be available this week. $2000 fine! They must have evoked the 'good bloke' defence......
