can i still whinge about my two teams for the weekend, Dogs and Tigs. absolute rat$hit


Cheers BC. All good. Kinda glad i was kept away from the tigers losing, i just don't know what the problem is. Who does? They've proven this year that on their night they can get it done against well rated opposition like freo and the hawks, but they seem to have trouble with the games they're expected to win.

Will they persist with Hardwick you think?

If history is anything to go by a west coast GF win will make living in WA unbearable for the next 10-15 years.

imo, stability is more important than winning a final. dont pull the trigger on the coach. Benny Gale went thru the dark times. So he knows what is required, and can keep the back office operating well. I think he went to Mallesons which with Freehills was the top white shoe firm in the country, before he went over to the PA. I would not have minded if he headed the AFL as their CEO instead of Gillon.

and we have a female president, she is from America, been here close to two decades, also a lawyer, dont like lawyers much meself, too many in my family... but she offers a sobering POV as chairwomen/president who will not be swayed by an emotionally pavlovian rash reaction guillotine on anyone. I think Hardwick would be safe even with one more finals loss next year. But not losing in one finals series, then in 2017, losing again, he would be shown the door. I think he would walk willingly then tho, knowing it was his time. So I would give him one more loss again next year, because, stability is more important than a flag if the counter factual is the last 3 decades since 1980

they will probably not screw the pooch and allow half their team to become walking talking recreational pharmeceutical addicts, and backyard boffin addicts...

thing is, when you have climbed to the top of the mtn, on the MCG, even doing a line of blow off the mons of the hottest model in town, it wont make your life fulfilled, they will keep on seeking the higher, the extra, the next high, so it is unerstandable in the one team town(pre Freo, even with Freo) that Cousins and Kerr get enabled by all and sundry and the cops give them a wide berth to wreak absolute havoc

the problem isn't the team (these days), it's the fans BC

the fans. full of smug entitlement and of course will have "forever" bragging rights over freo supporters

it's them who I really feel for, they could win 2 premierships on the one day but if a WCE player sneezes it will still push them off the front page

Tough luck for the Dockers. Ross Lyon just can't catch a break in finals.

This week's GF is really hard to predict. I favour West Coast slightly due to their week off in week two; might just run over the top of Hawthorn in the second half.

Try being a New South Welshman in QLD :rolleyes:

I lived in Perth for two years until the end of last year and can tell you that WA has nothing on Queerlanders when it comes to living vicariously through their football teams!
