There's usually not a lot of footy news at this time of the year after all of the trading and drafts have been and gone, but unfortunately for Carton fans there's some news. Bad news.


It's his left knee again.

In happier news, a bunch of pricing and positions for AFL Fantasy has been announced and The Traders have a new podcast out.

AFL Fantasy: Top-priced players revealed for 2019

Of course, Docherty was going to play a big part in most people's teams, so it's not all happy Fantasy/Supercoach news.

Watching AFL at 2:00 am in the 80s and 90s late at night.......

- I kind of know the basic rules
- Insane action
- Hawthorne and Melbourne. I always rooted for the team that had bumblebee colours
- These guys have the best kicking accuracy ever
- The tiny dude in the white suit doing the pts is awesome!

That's all I know and remember!

I haven’t watched AFL regularly since the Lions’ glory days of Voss, Brown, Lappin, Leppitsch, Black, Hart, Akermanis, Lynch, and so on. Always promised myself I’d get back into it when the Suns came good but here I am nearly a decade later still waiting. When will it be my time to shine?

That Lions team was amazing. So many stars.

You will be waiting a while for the Suns to come good. The will probably win the spoon in 2019. Their list isn't much better than a state league team.

The Lions on the other hand, are finally on their way up again. They probably won't make the finals in 2019 but the should win 8 - 10 games.

Footy News!

- Buddy Franklin won't start training until February due to a groin issue.

- It looks like the number 1 AFLW draft pick for 2017, Isabel Huntington from the Dogs, will need to get her third knee reco in 2 years after doing her ACL at training.

- Brendon Goddard, Mitch Hibberd and Jimmy Toumpas are some of the names being mentioned as replacements for Carlton's Sam Docherty. A new rule brought in this year allows a club to sign a previously-listed footballer or a state-league player who had previously nominated for a NAB AFL Draft to its rookie list to replace a player that's been put on the long term injury list. They have until March 15 to add the player.

- The MRO will be cracking down on high bumps next season, as well on things like the kung fu kicks by Toby Greene.

Think the other way.

EDIT: Reading back, I can see how you thought that though, lol. I should have said rogering instead.

Is everybody excited about the AFLW starting tonight?

Yes, I'm sure everybody is.


Go Pies!
I go for anything in Crows colours, so yeah! Hopefully our girls can return to the top where they belong.



Unfortunately, their game clashes directly with an Adelaide United A-League game because the people that organise this shit are retards, so I’ll have to settle for watching the game on replay.

Plus some of them are cute.

Macca is a bit of a specimen. People have said, I remind them of him. Anyway...

I don’t do the Instagram thing, but from what I remember due to a post on another forum, you should check out that Crows player’s instagram account. She likes bikinis.

As does another Crows player. Blond. Plays in the backline and wing. I forget her name. She likes them even more and beaches too.
