I'm confused by the sight of Cloke kicking a couple of goals.

And holy shit I think the Dees will actually do this.

Here's Jonathan Brown confirming everything you've ever thought about him

“I’m not sure, I don’t know Cotch that well but Cotch would have died, when he walked down to the newsagency the next day to grab the Herald Sun,” Brown told Nova 100.

Brooke Cotchin posted a supportive message on her Instagram account after Richmond’s heavy loss to West Coast and then agreed to an exclusive interview with the Sunday Herald Sun after the social media post gained traction.

“Expressing your feelings, you can understand but ... it’s the perception, obviously Richmond are going through a tough time, we just want to be big boys, we want to be men and it’s a man game.”

Brown said it was a “no-go zone” for his wife Kylie to make comments publicly during his decorated career at the Brisbane Lions.

“We get great support from our partners and our loved ones, they are there to support you at home, through the tough times, which is great, they do a fantastic job the girls, but they need to stay out of it publicly,” Brown said.

“This was a no-go zone from my wife Kylie, certainly I never had to muzzle her ... she would never have spoken publicly about it.”

Brown said the comments only perpetuate a perception Richmond has a “soft underbelly”.

“You know what, if Luke Hodge’s partner Loz did the same thing, after Hodgey broke his arm a couple of weeks ago, they had a bad loss against Geelong, you know what it would be a non-story because Luke Hodge and the Hawthorn Football Club has performed under pressure and in finals and won premierships, but it’s this perception, Richmond has a soft underbelly, sometimes from the leaders, when these sort of stories come out it just perpetuates the perception.”

"we just want to be big boys, we want to be men and it's a man game."

Jono feels like he needs to confirm several times that he is indeed a man. :'(

Is this a quote from the debates in the 1890s about whether or not to give women the vote?

I've already complained about this on Facebook and Twitter, but: the AFL's abolished grand final replays.

Yep, let's just get rid of the sport's distinctive qualities. Replace the centre bounce with a kick-off. Get rid of the behind posts and find a crossbar. Nobody plays on oval fields. Any football code worth its salt has an offside rule. That also means no forward passes. Eliminate interchanges altogether and use proper substitutes. And maybe have three less guys on field at any one time.

Then the AFL can be the feeder competition for the Wallabies!

I'm a traditionalist when it comes to AFL but I think GF (and finals) replays are anachronistic. The only reason I liked the replay in 2010 was another day to get pissed and watch the footy, really. The game was awful; you can hardly say the replay was worth it looking back.

I am however shocked that they considered dropping draws in the regular season. Fuck that.

Replays of other finals had to go simply for the scheduling difficulties they created. I'm not opposed to that.

But grand final replays mean Christmas comes a second time, and we can hardly use the poor quality of footy in the 2010 replay as a good reason to eliminate it or we'd eliminate half the games played each week.

The players and coaches don't want it. The task of getting a team up for a grand final a second time is Herculean.

I'll never forget Maxwell in the aftermath of that draw. His disgust was palpable.

Every time you see umpire Nicholls listed for a big game involving Hawthorn, you already know the end result.

6 goals to 1 from free kicks in Hawthorn's favour.

We're never going to beat Hawthorn any time soon.
