Remember when he was complaining because his eyebrows and forehead were getting split open every second game? If he just worked on those weak knees, he could’ve avoided all that.

Not surprised to see Flopperfield up there with Duckwood either.

You go down 2 spots this year and get what will probably be a late first rounder next year. It's a good deal for the Crows.

Now maybe they can stop falsely calling him “the best defender in the game” and give that title to someone who actually deserves it, like Daniel Talia.
last year as a Richmond fan was wild-

start of 2019-
Other fans- “fucking rance is overrated!”
Richmond fans- not really he is amazing
Rance- injures himself out of season
Other fans- “did we say overrated? We mean he’s amazing, Richmond are doomed!”
Richmond- turns out maybe he is overrated, let’s win a fucking cup again


anyway hope he does well.

cant wait for next year! Got the AFLW team for Richmond starting, and also having proven we have a great defence even without rancey we can just dive into 2020 going strong.

My daughter turned one recently and can’t wait to take her to an AFLW game with Richmond and also hopefully get her to a few proper games too. Start her young. We got to a couple of games this year but she was only 6 months old so it was a bit tougher.

The Wayne Carey sex scandal led the news when the Iraq war started.

The Dees have signed Harley Bennell.



6 weeks until the footy starts!

And a few days until the AFLW starts.

Football!

Let's hope the women's version of the Tigers/Blues R1 game is better than the men's one usually is.

It looks like a big crowd is building.

I loved AFL for like the first 3 years after i moved from Canberra to Melbourne. After that much time i started to hold all the one point victories against the sport as it just seemed too predictably hair raising.. i think st kilda's final replay defeat against the magpies put paid to my real interest.. all i can say these days is that geelong have been my favourite team ever since i was asked to pick one in 2007 and it was the only one i could remember. And I'm glad i picked them. Such a shame Gary Ablett chased green on the gold coast during their premierships window.

All i can say for the coming season? Go cats! I'll be cheering your results whenever i accidentally see them, hard to do so from Japan~ Dangerfield still going to win us the big one? Or is he getting old too? #longsuffering

That looks like princes park, awesome! I played 1000 hours of futsal a stone's throw from there

Pretty uninspiring stuff so far. May be a goalless 1st qtr.
Carlton got one. They should have got a couple of more.

Too much over possessing with handballs and not disposing the ball quickly enough is making it scrappy. Just kick it!

1 to half time. Very scrappy and skills just aren’t there to break the game open and keep it moving. Hopefully gets better on the 2nd half.

Watching the Saints/Hawks on Kayo. Casting it to the TV from the phone, it looks good and is streaming well.

A good first half at Moorabbin.

Very tempted to get Kayo. Apparently there's some 3 month free trial through BetEasy.

Do you know if they're streaming all preseason games?

Yeah, I reckon I like it. I’m usually a traditionalist, but it makes for much better tv viewing. Better than the yellow ball. I think they should replace it.
