The forwards at the Dockers were on a hiding to nothing,to many mids and backs racking up stats and the Cats throwing a spare down back just made it worse,Lyon didn't have the balls to man up the spare early,poor coaching.

I wish the modern day kids would take a leaf out of the Sam Mitchell handbook.

Break the game open with a 15-20 metre handball,not 5 handballs in 10 metres and stuff it up.They may have a good beep tests these days and they need it. 

That's Freo in a nutshell Jo. I don't know how many times I've shouted "kick it now" at the TV when watching them. They just have to keep going until they lose it!

One of the reasons I've always liked Priddis is that he will bang the ball on to his foot and make ground. If it falls to the wrong side at least it's 40 metres up field.

I think I used handpasses about 3 times in my career.

I'm not showing up, I've been on the road for a couple of weeks but thought I sorted it with the iPad. Suspicions arose when I could not find the group yesterday.
Waste of time me trying to fix it until I'm home tomorrow/Thursday.

The long range kicked off round one, too. Tips were similar to those chosen in the regular tipping. 

That will change no doubt.

Troubled former AFL star Ben Cousins has been sentenced to 12 months in jail and fined $2400 for stalking and drug offences.

Cousins, 38, was sentenced in Perth Magistrates Court today, having previously pleaded guilty to 11 offences, including aggravated stalking, breaching a violence restraining order and drug possession.

When the former West Coast captain was arrested, police found eight grams of methamphetamine in his possession, which his lawyer Michael Tudori told the court would only last him four days.

 

The violence restraining order was taken out by his former partner Maylea Tinecheff, with whom he has two children, aged three and five.

The court heard the VRO breaches related to Cousins visiting the children's school and church, and making repeated phone calls to his former partner. Cousins called Ms Tinecheff 371 times in February before his arrest, including 50 times in one day.

Sorry to hear this outcome. I hope this works in Ben's favor. He was pushing 'end game' constantly. I do not wish anything but the best for Ben and know from working experience what he faces, the difficulties and doing what he faces alone. It is time for silver linings and removing choice might just be the first step. Still young.

Hopefully I'll be able to get things in order from here on in... Give Alex a bit of banter, just for old times sake ;)

He needs a damn good bantering.

Most likely he has some thing like obsessive compulsive disorder and a host of other things, sport and a ridged environment help keep him on the straight and narrow now he has nothing, 300 calls in a month well you don't have to be a rocket scientist to know something up top isn't working like it should... lot of people like him that don't get press, for Ben goodbye I won't comment on it again, my ex wife and son and now I'm thinking my daughter in a milder form suffer from something like this yet they lead normal lives....

No probs mate.

 

The Fox Footy shows are really behind on Watch AFL.

 

I've read there's been a mountain of complaints about

their VOD shows.

I find their live streaming very poor. Their response to complaints is also very poor
