I can't understand why you weren't watching it?! Bledisloe Cup history is certainly one-sided.

I'm at a gig! But I caught a fair chunk of the first half before heading out, when the real damage was done. My boy Beauden Barrett has silenced some of the doubters who didn't think he could perform as well on the world stage as he has in the Super Rugby.

It's funny because this effort shown by Port I have not seen in any other game this season. It's classic Port Adelaide.

There is video footage of a Port supporter throwing a banana at Eddie Betts after he kicked his 5th. Fucking unbelievable, utter scum.

Perhaps Eddie McGuire, high on some more painkiller, got confused and went to the wrong Magpies game.

Imagine that juxtaposition of Kochie 'condemning' this act whilst having Pauline Hanson over on his show on a fairly regular basis ... wonderful.

Vlad, I just stole that for Twitter. Sorry. Very good.

However, to play devil's advocate.... I am not sure if this was an out-and-out racist thing. To me it kinda looks like she just threw the first thing she could get her hands on, which happened to be a banana. Doesn't excuse it in any way and she should absolutely be banned because it's a completely fucked thing to do - AND it may well have had a racist intent, we don't know - but...

Cheers. There have been some Facebook posts shared around by other Port supporters saying that this woman and those around her had been particularly abusive (and in a racist matter). And there's also the thing that racism is not always premeditated, and nobody is thick enough to not make the connection between throwing a banana at an Indigenous/black person.

I think there are people that thick, sadly.

Again, not a fucking excuse.

And again, there's probably people who know full well of the connection and do it anyway as some sort of political correctness martyr.

I'm glad this is getting the coverage it deserves.

1 year ban. A bit light.

Apparently it will be increased to a life ban if found to be racially motivated?

As if that's even a question.

The AFL Thread Proudly Sponsoring Patrick Dangerfield

Barring a wild comeback, it looks like we put an end to Melbourne's season.

The talent isn't there yet, but I think we've got a shot at landing somewhere just outside the 8 next year with the right offseason acquisitions. I wouldn't mind us climbing four spots a season.

Bolton's brought some good coaching nous to Carlton. Can he also do something about their horrible recent record of trades?

There we go, Dees are definitively out of the finals race. Saints in theory can make it if they thump Brisbane and GWS destroy North, but in practice that percentage difference is too great.
