    Unpopular takes

    A safe space to get off your chest what you think would be "Unpopular Takes" either on woof or in the real world.

    I'll start,

    1) I really like listening to The Tradies podcast of Sam McClure and Mitch Cleary discussing all things trades, historical looks at how certain big trades or contract signings went down.

    2) I like hearing what Kane Cornes has to say - I don't always agree but like listening

    3) David King is the best analyst in the game
    More of an In Bruges guy?

    I sometimes leave before the end.

    I can't handle traffic anymore.

    Phew... There's a load off!

    You're better than me. I love Friday night footy when we play, sit on the coach, heater on, 6er in the fridge. I'm starting to like that more than actually going, not that I can anyway. Friday is basketball night and enjoy watching my son play more than anything.

    It's definitely lost its magic going to the footy

    I still play indoor sports even though I'll be 60 next year-ive gone from being an overly competitive middle aged bloke to an overly competitive old bloke.

    I play indoor handball and soccer. Last year I was goal keeping in an indoor soccer game and all of a sudden my son is running at me with the ball an his feet. I remember thinking that there can't be anything better than this.

    Anyway he lobbed it over my shoulder into the back of the net and made me look a proper git. Obviously he regretted it as he walked home.
    They say Burt Lancaster has one, but I don't believe them.

    Agree hard with #2. Cornes is reasonable, backs up what he says, changes his mind or backs down when he's proven wrong, and it's very, very easy to see when he's being 'sensationalist'.

    I don't fully agree with #3 but I like Kingy and he says smart stuff.

    Re: Unpopular takes

    1. I hate the lights flickering around the boundary, the loud PA with games at half time, Music at the footy - especially Marvel - really spoils the night.

    2. Sick of negative supporters - they are now bigger whinges than Essendon supporters (maybe not) We make finals every year and they sook. Come back to the early 80s and see how much fun that was (not)

    3. MSM - it is out of hand now.
    FFC: Established 1883

    Premierships: AFL 1954, 2016 VFA - 1898,99,1900, 1908, 1913, 1919-20, 1923-24, VFL: 2014, 2016 . Champions of Victoria 1924. AFLW - 2018.

    Re the op my unpopular take would be Buku he's lucky to be on a vfl list.
    Charlie Clarke, how was he so high in the draft.
    I don't think Bont is a great kick.
    West hasn't earned his arrogance.

    I remember Cody copping this too in his first season, was already written off as a flop. Got to give them a season first.
    The curse is dead.

    Yep I'm hoping I'm very wrong.

    I never thought the same with Weightman. (I think don't look it up).
