    I believe you can view without subscription.

    I just decided they were good enough to support.

    It's not a subscription only site. Subscribers get earlier access to articles plus some exclusive content I believe.

    I have posted their articles before, sorry but wasn't aware posting the freely available articles was an issue. I guess they may generate adverting revenue from clicks so will refrain in the future.

    Bit of a Mr Fix-it plays as a defensive forward, midfield and deep back as a small depends where they need him. I don't mind him as a player.

    Yeah, I am not sure on protocols either, but I guess if they are freely available should be ok.

Yeah there wasn't much in the bump but when you're buggered and you get knocked unexpectedly from the side, you're gonna lose your balance. Third, Smith is an idiot (hey he was trained to be one with the plastics. Is there a worse combination than a Giant and Bomber? Hello Sheeds) for doing the bump RIGHT in front of the umpire and judging by Jack's reaction, it was the 2nd time he had done it to him. Jack may have flailed his arms once he went to ground but that was because Smith obviously had gotten away with it the first time.

    Anyway, I grew in confidence at half time once I heard Rutten speak. He was pleased with their run and carry but thought the one thing that would get them on top would be if they lifted their contested ball efforts. Not sure he realises what team he's coaching.
    Yeah, Macrae held the two fingers up. A minute later Smith is trying to justify to Macrae that he is lucky. That was funny.

    Yep, Jacko clearly in his head. There was the downfield incident earlier that Jack milked, then the bump that gave away the fifty.

    Smith arguing with the person kind of reminded me of an entitled twit kid complaining how things aren't fair. Nice finish from him in the pocket though, I'd have him at the Dogs in a heartbeat.

    Also with regard to posting the whole article on here, I'm not sure we should be doing that for small independent sites like the Mongrel Punt. If it was just extracts sure, and if it was something like the Herald Sun (who have been frankly disgraceful this year in so many ways) I think it'd be fine but to post an entire in depth article from an independent site denying them clicks i don't think is right, especially when it is the exact kind of content we actually want to encourage (I know people had issues with the link, but that seemed like a temporary issue).
    But you click on the address and it takes you to the article so itís still a click to them.

    The article was originally posted in full over the course of maybe 4 posts. With a link admittedly, but kind of redundant when the article is all there anyway.
    I should leave it alone but you're not right

    Reading about Essendon's small and weak depth midfield always takes me back to Matthew Lloyd saying that Libba wasn't worth trading for in 2017 as he wouldn't get a game in Essendon's midfield. What a bell-end.

    May Essendon's media sycophants long continue to hype up that bunch of squibs.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    That's why Lloyd is well suited to a media gig that most of us don't see.

    Knowledge and understanding is not a requirement. Not even an optional extra as it would show up the rest of the incompetents.
