  1. Re: Not an ACL. NOT. An. ACL. Thank *!*!*!*! for that.

    I'll take it.

    When things were going from bad to worse on Saturday, my thoughts shifted to how much a year long Naughton absence would hurt 2020. It would be some hit.

  3. Re: Getting the Band(wagon) Back Together

    I would think fairly modest money would probably do it. The Crows will leave him in the 2’s early in the year and try to sign him on a next to no money extension. I’d put money on it.

  4. Re: Getting the Band(wagon) Back Together

    According to some mates, Bulldogs supporter Ned McHenry tore it up in the SANFL semi v Norwood on the weekend.

  5. Re: 2019 Elimination Final Game Day - GWS Giants V Western Bulldogs

    If there is evena slight advantage of one end over the other you would think its a pretty important toss to win.

  17. Re: The unofficial 2019 "Where is T&T?" who to root for thread

    Re: AFL Game Day R23 2019

    Unless GC pull an upset and there is roughly 100 points made up by our margin over the Crows and GC’s over GWS. If that happens we finish 6th and play them as a home final.
  20. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 23, Vs Adelaide

  32. Re: The unofficial 2019 "Where is T&T?" who to root for thread

    I don’t usually put on multibets, but when I do they lose. So today I put $10 on an “Everything’s gone to shit” multi (Adelaide, Essendon, Port, and GWS). You’ll thank me later.
