Wouldn't write bombers off just yet. They will come good at some point. They seem to be a team that only plays half a year, so could be a big second half in them again.

Whispers are that Woosha has been sacked. It is Aprils fools day however. Off field issues are huge too.

If it was a true April Fools, the second part would be that James Hird is his replacement.

How good was Heppells mark on the weekend? Nick Reiwoldt style. Love watching courage like that.

It was courageous, but what you would expect of a leader at any club.
Of the three goal of the year (Rd2) contenders, easily #3 for me.

Josh Bruce's from the same game a clear winner for me. Very much a match for Heeney in Rd1.

And what was with the afl.com.au top 10 for round 2 having Josh Bruce at #4 and De Goey at #1. Not even close.

Dear Paul Brasher

It’s not a supplements scandal. Your club is not a victim. The Essendon 34 are convicted drug cheats.

James Hird chose to implement a deliberate performance enhancing drugs program and tried to use wilful blindness and a scapegoat to absolve himself and the players of any guilt. But they were rightfully found guilty by an independent court of justice despite the best efforts of the VFL to cover it up.

Stop history revisionism and accept the club you’ve joined were convicted drug cheats.

Brad Crouch and Tyson Stengle apparently caught with Cocaine (according to WAToday). Preliminary thoughts are that they will both cop a strike. The police have chosen not to charge them and have referred them to a diversionary program

AFL players get special treatment. I hate how money can get whatever you want basically. Different rules depending you who you are. :(

Both players will also receive a strike under the AFL's Illicit Drugs Policy as a result of the League's investigation.


I thought strikes were confidential. Should the AFL be announcing it?

I thought they were as well.

But when the whole sad shebang has been on the front page of the papers for over a week, it's not exactly a recreational drug failed confidential urine test is it?
