  1. Poll: Re: Should fans be ejected for calling umpires names?

    No no no no no...….the AFL assures us it was an independent decision, and if you can't trust the AFL, who can you trust?
  2. Poll: Re: Should fans be ejected for calling umpires names?

    It's been reported it was a Marvel Stadium decision to increase the aisle presence of security. They're going to wind it back, and consider reverting back to using police.

  3. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 14, Vs Collingwood

    Yes, was suggesting in lieu of Crozier being too valuable as an interceptor my next choice for Stephenson would be Williams.
  4. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 14, Vs Collingwood

    Crozier is quick, and good in the air and this is why he is really good as an interceptor. An alternative to him could be Williams who wasn't as bad throughout the game Saturday as people possibly...

    Yep, the team and list was inherited, the current coaching team got it to a flag and it has been in a state of flux since then and is now rebuilding.
