When was the last time all games in a round were won by home teams?

Would have tipped Melbourne Dees last night I think. Very drab game of football, though West Coast might be a chance to sneak into the 8 come season's end. Squad is coming good after a few years dwelling in the cellar.

Sydney
North Melbourne
Richmond
Colliwobbles
St. Kilda
Ess-a-don

I don't know, but this round's a realistic chance for that.

Whenever I make picks and notice I've picked all home teams (or, worse, all away teams), I make a point of changing my picks. It's so rare that the odds of it happening the week I pick it to happen are very, very slim!

Welp, I'm pretty damn pleased. We could have won by a lot more, but to have the game so firmly in control for the whole thing is great. To win by 54 points and still have Lecca and Naita two of your worst players on the ground is a pretty great sign.

Speaking of which, can't remember who the Dees player was but did you see him get into a fight with Naita in the Dees forward 50 in the 3rd quarter (I think?)? I'd never seen the man so pissed off before. Wondering if there's something else to it.

No idea, as far as I know it's a Slovenian name.

I think it's a reference to Vlad the Impaler that Sheeds made a few years ago, or because it rhymes with "AD". I'm not too sure.

Check out my assignment for my Media Law & Ethics class:

Quote:


1. A popular football team, the Bobcats, takes off for a training camp at a beachside resort in Victoria, and heads out to a bar one night. They party on back at their hotel afterwards, with one of the bar attendants. Twelve months later, the respected national, commercial TV current affairs program ‘Public Eye’ broadcasts a story featuring the bar attendant describing her harrowing ordeal at the idyllic resort hotel. In the story, she tells the reporter that she was raped by three football players as another took photographs of her, and the three men, naked. The ‘Public Eye’ story shows the woman in shadow profile only and disguises her voice. The reporter says that their story research has been handed over to police, who are investigating. The reporter notes in the story put to air that the woman has come forward because she wanted justice but thought no one would want to help her.

2. A commercial TV station downloads some Facebook photographs and features them along with a series of file story images on its morning news program.

3. The faces of two of the three players and that of the woman are clearly shown in the downloaded photos used during a panel discussion on the same program of the issue of football players’ involvement in scandal and public misadventure.

4. Two days later, police charge one of the three Bobcat players with rape and aggravated assault. Commercial TV Channel Y puts a 2
promo to air featuring a clip from what the promo voiceover claims is a ‘startling and shocking’ text message sent from a Bobcats player to a club official about the incident. The case goes to trial. The defence asks the Channel Y reporter to reveal how she obtained a copy of the message. She refuses.

5. A Melbourne radio bulletin that evening reports on the case and invites listeners to "tweet, text, or phone with comments". DJ Mike Marconi reads out a Tweet that says, "Not worth my time in that jury seat tomorrow. Verdict’s decided in kangaroo court."

We have to discuss this scenario with regards to consequences for journalists, etc. Pretty damn interesting and it's a very "open" essay, something I never get to write.

Anyway I post because I want to know - re Andrew Lovett. Remember he was charged with raping that chick in an apartment in 09/10? I can't find anything that says he's guilty/not guilty, so I assume the hearing/trial is yet to come? Anywhere you can look to see when a case is scheduled?

Many people seem to make the mistake of thinking all Slavics are Russian.

I could definitely imagine AD having vampire fangs, though.

If Jamar is labeled Russian then why isn't Porplyzia labeled as such seeing as he's Ukrainian?

Mystery.

What on earth is wrong with Port Adelaide? You're being smashed by North for fuck's sake!

Port Adelaide are always shit, and have been for the past few years. They only ever play well in Showdowns.

It'd be nice of Brisbane could go ahead and play Collingwood, St. Kilda or Richmond, because that's apparently the only way ESPN3 is ever going to show one of their games

I know that much, but I can't possibly see why they've suddenly become even shittier this year. They weren't so shit that they'd be beaten by a crappy new team on their home ground, or thrashed by likely wooden spooners. This really is a new low for them.
