    1. Keith Richards is a very overrated guitar player.

    3.I think Mel Jones and Callum Ferguson are much better cricket commentators than most who call the play on TV these days.
    2. Omg absolutely, flog.

    3. Mel Jones is a star. I really like Jason Bennet too for Aussie rules.

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

    Yep I'm hoping I'm very wrong.

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

    Ouch. Individuals are, however as a collective hard to argue.

    Re: Unpopular takes

    Another ppssibly unpopular point of view.

    Taylor Duryea is not cooked, and I hope plays another year. I think he's somewhat harshly judged because he plays in a position where a mistake can immediately lead to an opposition score. As opposed to a player who occasionally belly's a snap from the forward pocket.

    I reckon on the other side of his ledger, in the role he's asked to perform, he has a lot of fan-unnoticed positive stats to his name most weeks, that coaches rate. And for which they will overlook the occasional fubar.

    It's no good banging on about the rule changes, it is what it is and we just need to work within them.

    100%. I suspect most if not all AFL coaches adhere to this purely from a pragmatic point of view. To not get on with it would have otherwise dramatic impact on your team's ability to win football games.

    The fans have the all care no responsibility position however in lamenting or despising them though.

    You know I think it was a huge contributor leading up to Eade's departure. He went from exploiting rules changes like the quick kick ins after a point is scored and having us scoring the most coast-to-coast goals early in his coaching time with us to almost being paralyzed by any rule changes towards the end of his time with us. He really struggled with changes to the interchange.
    Fans should of course express their views on rule changes but then get on with it.

    Ron Barassi and Kevin Sheedy don’t deserve the credit they get in the game.

    The concussion stuff is hysterical.

    Fans should be segregated at the footy.

    Can 100% vouch for this. He out drank me and then helped me stumble into the MCG on Grand Final day 2016.
    But then again, I'm an Internet poster and Bevo is a premiership coach so draw your own conclusions.
