  1. Here is the predictable response. 'Fiery' Shaw apologises for 'offensive remark' GREATER Western Sydney defender Heath Shaw has apologised for the offensive comment that took the gloss off the Giants' big win over Sydney at the SCG on Saturday night. Shaw was recorded by on-field microphones calling opponent Tom Papley a "f---ing retard" as Papley headed to the bench. The Sydney small forward had just been in a contest with Shaw in which he had held Shaw in a headlock. The audio was broadcast, prompting Fox Footy commentator Jason Dunstall to apologise to viewers. "I want to apologise for the insensitive comment I made to Tom Papley during last night's game," Shaw said in a statement on the Giants' website on Sunday. "Yes I am a fiery person who plays with a lot of passion and emotion but that is no excuse for my actions last night. "I apologise to Tom and anyone else who took offence to my comments, I deeply regret them. "There is no place for comments of that nature on or off the football ground. It was an offensive remark that I should never have made and for that I apologise."
  2. The world has gone mad! Surely we're not this precious are we? Shaw sledge overshadows Giants' SCG breakthrough GREATER Western Sydney’s crushing 42-point win over the Swans has been soured by allegations of an offensive and irresponsible sledge by senior player Heath Shaw during the tense third quarter of a spiteful derby at the SCG. Giants coach Leon Cameron said he had briefly discussed the incident with club officials after the match but wanted to know more details before making further comment. “We’ll use the next 24 hours to have a really good discussion about actually what happened,” Cameron said. “So it’s hard for me comment any further until I actually hear what happened. We’ll have a discussion with the people involved and see where that leads.” Shaw was recorded by on-field microphones calling opponent Tom Papley a "f---ing retard" as Papley headed to the bench. The Sydney small forward had just been in a contest with Shaw in which he had held Shaw in a headlock. The audio was broadcast, prompting Fox Footy commentator Jason Dunstall to apologise to viewers. If proven, it would be the low-point on an otherwise triumphant night for the Giants, who secured their fourth win in a row with a huge effort to snuff out the Swans across the field after they had exploded with four unanswered goals in the first five minutes of the game.
  3. I always thought Freo were a chance given Norf's terrible last quarters this year, and their general win/loss ratio in close games. The big boys in Fyfe, Mundy and Sandi stood up when the game was on the line. Having said that, they did get out of jail.
  4. Just started series 2 and it's really enjoyable.

  6. I'm with KB on this one. Kevin Bartlett, Tim Watson slam ‘silly’ David King DAVID King’s suggestion for Collingwood to backflip on its suspension of star Jordan De Goey has been heavily criticised by rival SEN footy analysts. AFL legends Kevin Bartlett and Tim Watson spoke out about Kings plan for the Pies to re-call De Goey for the club’s Anzac Day blockbuster against Essendon on Tuesday. The midfield star was stood down by the club to play three reserve games in the VFL after lying to club officials by saying he suffered a broken hand injury while playing with his dog. He was then forced to admit he suffered the injury in a bar fight in St Kilda just hours after senior players had made a decision no Collingwood player would go out drinking the week before their season-opener against the Western Bulldogs. The 21-year-old has played just one match in the reserves since he was cleared to return from his broken hand. However, with Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley’s position under enormous pressure after another disappointing start to the season with just one win, King on Wednesday night called on the Magpies mentor to backflip out of necessity and play De Goey in the seniors this week. “I just think there’s more at stake on Tuesday,” King told Fox Footy’s AFL 360. “I know they suspended Jordan De Goey for all the right reasons, but sometimes you’ve just got to say ‘who cares what the world thinks? We’ve got to control our own destiny’. “Get him in and tell him ‘you’ve got one place you need to pay us back and that’s at 2.30pm on Tuesday afternoon — you give us everything’. “And you know what? Who cares what the outside world says? Because Buckley’s job, in a lot of ways, is on the line. “I just think Tuesday is too important to have a player like that — who is a Rolls-Royce, he’s a goalkicker — (you need to) get him in the team.” Bartlett slammed the North Melbourne great’s surprising suggestion, saying it would “erode all credibility” of Buckley’s regime. “The footy world’s gone mad,” Bartlett told SEN’s Hungry for Sport. “I heard yesterday David King say on Fox Footy Collingwood should throw all of its standards out the window and play club suspended midfielder Jordan De Goey against Essendon on Anzac Day. “The Pies suspended De Goey until he plays 3 games in the reserves. So far he has played one, after lying to the club. “That’s a silly call by King for such a decision would erode all credibility at a struggling football club. Since when is any player bigger than the club? “Then I read in The Age today that Hawthorn should consider trading a bunch of good players including Cyril Rioli. Never heard so much rubbish.” Richmond’s greatest goal sneak — on the right.Source:News Corp Australia Buckley himself responded to King’s recommendation when asked at his press conference on Thursday. Collingwood FC ✔ @CollingwoodFC Buckley: "Jordan (De Goey) is going about earning trust. He's got a couple of weeks of penance to serve" #gopies 9:48 AM - 20 Apr 2017 Bombers great Watson also publicly criticised King’s call, saying the club has to stick to their guns to drive performance and behavioural standards from its players. “Collingwood under no circumstances can play Jordan De Goey until he serves his club suspension,” Watson said on SEN Breakfast. “It has been suggested by some great football minds the club reverses its penalty and plays the talented De Goey because the club needs his talents. “Your club values, rules, behavioural standards have to be written in stone, not on the back of a tissue. “While there is no suggestion anyone from the club that this will occur, the idea cannot be entertained.”
  7. Well gang, another big round, spread over 5 days. We kick it off on Friday with Port versus Carlton. Astounds me how Carlton keep getting the Friday night games. I think they had 7 last year. Port by plenty. The WB host Brisbane and while they're aren't playing at their best, they will be too strong for the Lions I would imagine. The GC versus Ade at home will give us a good indication where they're at. GC are in decent nick but have only beaten the Hawks and Carlton. Adelaide to win in a game that could be closer than what the bookies think. The Sydney derby. Stevie J expected back for GWS. I think the last time he played was the game he belted Josh Kennedy in the final last year. Sydney should have some good in's but hard to see them getting the choccies over GWS. The resurgent Freo host Norf. Norf have ben pretty competitive and really should've beaten Geelong and possibly the Bulldogs, so they've been pretty good despite not having a win. Freo's home ground advantage should give them the edge. On Sunday, the Sainters host Geelong at Etihad. This should be one of the games of the rounds I reckon. Geelong are on top of the table but I don't think they're the best side in it. A toss of the coin methinks. If West Coast are ever going to beat the Hawks at the G, it will be this weekend. Have the Hawks got a few good games left in them? They shouldn't be winless judging by the talent they have. The Hawks are a proud club who have been pilloried in the media this week. They won't be fearing WC at the MCG, that's for sure. I expect them to bounce back. WC will have to be in front at half time or they're gorn. Richmond and Melbourne is just about game of the round for me. Richmond haven't played a real top side yet, (apart from beating WC at the MCG where everyone else does as well). The Demons to get Hogan back will still be smarting from last weeks loss. In particular their 3rd quarter. The Dee's kicked 13.19 in a game against Geelong they could've easily won. They won't want to lose 3 in a row and could have a win against a Richmond side who despite being 4 zip, haven't won me over as yet. The Anzac day clash is a must win for Collingwood. Lose to Essendon and the calls for Buckley's head will go through the roof. I reckon Essendon are a sneaky chance to upset Collingwood and run them off their legs. Good luck guys.
  8. It would be preferable to have a letter of employment but it's not a deal breaker. Your wife is going with you to visit Australia and you she will be returning with you back to Thailand. It would be a different situation if you lived in Oz and she lived in Thailand.
