The Other Games - 2019 - Jools - 25-03-2019

Well with some of the results this weekend, our slight fall off in the 2nd and 3rd quarters will barely rate a mention in the media this week I would think. The game itself was spoken about not being of a great standard, but compared with some of the other tripe dished up, I don't think there was another game that should have been substituted as the season opener.

Hard to decide on the worst result, but for me it was Essendon. They just didn't put pressure on, and the errors were shockers.

Yes Essendon was the biggest shock for mine. Brisbane beating West Coast was just behind that.

Interesting with the scores making it the lowest scoring opening round in many many years. So the new rules didn't quite get the desired result but it is only one round.

The table I saw, published on km's covered by each team, if correct, is damning on the Dons. It had every team covering > 250 km with the Blues top with 292 and us 2nd with 288 and the Dons 100 km behind 17th with only 147 km.

Yes I saw that

Also footage from the Port v Melbourne game with a ball up around Port's half back flank and all the Melbourne guys move into the middle of the ruck and most of the Port guys hold their position and Port wins the ball and a handball over the top has them running away. The big thing was that not one of the Melbourne guys made an initial move to chase. They walked away.

Richmond member banned for two years for racist online comments. Should be a lifetime ban.
Richmond fans brawling in the stands as the song is playing on Thursday night.

Getting a reputation, and not a flattering one. It’s always the abolaute minority that tarnishes the majority.

Yes a poor showing of late from some so called Tiger fans

No, that's excessive. I take it you're also a supporter of the death penalty (at least for Collingwood supporters).

No. I’m a supporter of lifetime bans for social media racists.

Is that what happened to @Black? You banned him for his KKK jokes?
