Toovey's manager is a prick, trade him already. Same thing will probably happen when Cloke comes outta contract at the end next season.

Looks like Dawes is gonna re-sign. So that's some good news. (Not on the back of his GF performance though )

AFL sub rule to stay, advantage rule tweaked

Seriously, how fucking hard would it be to introduce the rugby method of playing advantage? The ref calls it, and if the team awarded advantage does not gain any advantage from the ensuing play, then it is called back to the penalty and a free kick taken. That would stop all the nonsense where umpires think players have taken advantage when they never intended to and the moment is wasted.

As for introducing technology to help with scoring decisions, they should introduce it on the cricket basis. Teams should be allowed to challenge a scoring decision they disagree with, but only permitted two unsuccessful challenges, after which they cannot challenge any more. Since dubious decisions are much less common in AFL than in cricket, I doubt it would even be used that much.

This is crud.

We get pick 24, 46, 64 from Hawthorn and they get Jack "Mother's Boy" Gunston, 53, 71.

What's the need for such a large trade of picks?

EDIT: Only a piece of the puzzle, seems like more is on the way ...

By the things I've heard of them is he supposed to be a superstar player as soon as he steps onto the field for his first game?

Be interesting to see if this kid delivers on his supposed promise ... or if the Gold Coast can really string anything together at all.

Shit's getting real, it's a great feeling when your club is throwing their weight around in trade week.

It is. Maybe it will lead you to being as good as Geelong one day.
