Not digging in. Just saying Port can win next week.

Well, it is the Showdown, and I do agree to a degree because it is their "Grand Final" and oh I don't really care anymore.

Port can win, but I certainly wouldn't tip them on the road. We're talking riots and rotten tomato territory if Adelaide loses.

Love how you're uninterested because your team is losing. Have some loyalty!

Though good fucking christ, what a thrashing. Makes Essendon's snooze through the first half last week look all the more embarrassing.

Yet your upset that Cobbler made an offhand remark about the (increasingly) good chances of Port winning next week. Sounds like someone who just doesn't want to admit he's pissed off at his team. These are emotions, you care.

But there is often an underpinning racism in a lot of football writing. Something quite patronising about the tone. Adam Goodes wrote an article just before Dreamtime this year that (rightfully) highlighted and condemned the notion that Aboriginal players are "magical" in some way. Indeed, there is a popular assumption that they are born with "silky" skills, and that they may have exhibited a hard work ethic to become a professional footballer is something that is never addressed, which would rile me if I was Goodes, Natanui or Aaron Davey in particular.

I am loyal, it's just I'm numb to the pain of losing and it (the result) does not affect my weekend as much as it used to.

I don't know nothing.

All two of them.

That's what I was trying to get at, cheers.

Yeah I agree, and that's what I was referring to, Goodes' comments. I guess it just doesn't bother me as much as Bonnie. I certainly don't think there's any intentional racial undertones, I agree there is a theme that runs, but if there are, then that's obviously very wrong.

That's the article by Goodes. Quality yarn. Judd and Rob Murphy also (ghost)write well. They all put Mike State-The-Fucking-Obvious Sheahan to shame.

Post fixed. Stoopid iphone.

I need North, Collingwood 60+, Geelong 40+, West Coast and Hawthorn 40+ for my multi to get up.

Metro radio ad: "there is a huge crowd expected at today's North/Brisbane game" lololol
