    Yeah, but he is a MAGICAL guitar play.

    And I?m sure you understand what I mean. Spend some time learning ?Love in Vain? then try to play it alongside the original and you will understand. He gets it wrong but it sounds so RIGHT...but if YOU match his notes and phrasing, well...it just sound wrong.

    And, if you don?t agree, NETS!
    What should I tell her? She's going to ask.

    The concussion stuff is hysterical.

    Fans should be segregated at the footy.
    I think it's the old school footballer in me so I agree with this.

    You should ask Liam Picken if he agrees.

    Big difference to what we're seeing now. Out of last night Hopper and Scott would likely be fine to play a game of footy tonight but have to miss extended time. It just needs to be case by case for club doctors and the monitoring of players who have taken knocks.

    Disagree but you're an "old school footballer" and they always get it right so no point arguing the toss.

    I think that's pretty unnecessary.

    I'm not against it and saying they should send players out like piece of meat. I actually agree in subbing them out for the game like they're doing now. It's the time off afterwards that needs some work and should be a case by case situation.

    Why? You made the claim as your qualification on the matter. I'm not meaning to be a smartarse, or rather I am but admit it sounds more like I'm attacking you than I mean to.

    I think a lot more science and peer review goes into the decisions around it than "some bloke having an opinion on it" and I'm happy to leave it with the professionals that have actually trained in that field. Unless they're Port Adelaide "professionals".

    Surely I’m not the only one ready to confess our jumper last night was pretty bloody good. Diamond dogs rejoice.

    Spec savers or nets, choose.

    If they keep playing like that though I don’t mind watching that eyesore of an outfit.

    Looked terrible in marketing material, looked great in the real thing.
    I should leave it alone but you're not right

    I'm all for it. I played in the 90s, there was nothing even mentioned.
    I reckon I was concussed at least 5 times in 100 games before I called it.

    Centre half forward, you lead, midfielders kick over your head, you prop, stop and get clattered by a 100kg chb who really just wants to drive his elbows into the back of your head.

    Yuk.

    I actually liked the jumper but think it was more to do with the shade of blue
