Mike Shehan is arguably the worst AFL analyst-journalist in the land...Rohan Connolly is much better

And all of sudden apparently the Crows are the new near-certanties to make the grand final on the back of one decent win according to Mike Sheahan
Typical of him... they played like a bunch of girls last Sunday against us. If they make the GF at all (though they won't), they'll get thrashed.

I was on Drinkin' Island for most of the weekend so I found out the results of the Lions/Eagles game Sunday morning. I wanted to go back to sleep.

I wouldn't say that he is the worst, not by a long shot, but he and a few journos tend to over-enthusiastically back a team after they have put in a good performance. It's week-by-week. If Collingwood beats us by 50 next week (God forbid ) you watch, he will write a story saying that they should be at least second favourite for the premiership, and will then eat his words the following week.

I much prefer Robert Walls and Mark Robinson.

And by the way, does anyone watch Footy Classified? It's so annoying! Caroline Wilson has got to be the biggest know-it-all there is. She just drops lines like, "well actually the Essendon inner-sanctum were very unhappy with the way he perfomed himself" with the biggest grin on her face. And does she elaborate? No? Hutchy annoys me and Wayne Fairy just drops massive claims every five minutes. "They have to keep Fevola." etc

Walls is a gun...

FC is pretty cool, except for the over-rated player and over-rated commentator and full-time bore Garry lyon...

Caro Wilson cops a lotta shit, but most of it is only cause she is a woman. She's the AFL's best and most accurate newsbreaker

Question for you Sydneysiders... does it get decent coverage up there now? Considering they have made the past two grand finals? Or does the rugby still kick ass?

Probably since '03-'04 we get every game either live or half hour delay (at least thats the case here in Newcastle)...
All Swannies games are either on Saturday arvo (live), Saturday night (usually 30 min delay) or Sunday arvo (live)...
They never play Friday's (probably cos NSW has back-to-back NRL from 7:30 Friday nights)... NRL is still the more popular game but i'd say but AFL coverage has definately increased and popularity is also increasing- especially in the papers since the grandfinals...
I guess we are pretty lucky cos we are always guarenteed to get every Swannies game regardless...

NRL blows arse, and everyone knows this whether they admit it or not, so yeah, we do get a lot of coverage.

Nah it's the rugby union that sucks, NRL is great. Sure, a lot of the NRL fans and most of the players are boofheads, but if you can look beyond that the game itself is a great balance of strength, speed, and skill.

Anyway yes go the Swannies.

It's great to 'meet' an NRL supporter who thinks the AFL is great, too.

Good to hear

Though I'm sorry but I just can't appreciate a game where all they do is run into each other, fall over, and get back up again.

Chumbawumba described the game perfectly.

Okay, I'm off to watch the first ep of the new season of TGYH!!

TGYH :notworthy:

We don't have an outdoor aerial at the moment, and the digital box has lost reception. I sawPeter Helier in grainy(er - than his skit ) black and white, which looked funny though.

Ohh no, I'm not taking that bait, not in this thread.

TGYH is great but do you think they should either get rid of Tom Gleisner or give him a less sucky role?
