As an AFL fan, it's annoying to watch Laura Kane and Andrew Dillon screwing up our awesome game. They ain't fixing nothing and just making things worse. Fingers crossed they don't stick around too long.

Who gives a damn about any other game besides the epic showdown between the Hawks and the Magpies?
Swans and Lions are big enough for Friday night footy, they've already had the Crows and Bombers on a Friday night.

It seems they're not really worried about the tackle itself, but more about the outcome. To me, those were two awesome tackles! If they weren't feeling dizzy, they'd probably be fine. AFL is just trying to avoid getting sued too much.
Charles Morgan
The players' union could put a stop to this if they wanted to. They could refuse to play, in other words, go on strike until things make sense and the tribunal doesn't have any lawyers (basically, think AFL). But the players' union is weak and run by Dangerfield, who's eyeing an AFL job once he's do... View More

Duggan could have received a free kick for a good tackle, but he was suspended because his head hit the ground.

The AFL tribunal's penalties are unfair and excessive, making me prefer Sprintcar racing.

Who decided on these rules and who's on the panel that put them in the media for everyone to see instead of making up new ones on the spot?

What went down in game 1 of Origin was straight up whack. NSW was short a player for most of the game over some bs call that just deserved a short timeout. Any sport with fat stacks on the line is just shady like that.
Michelle Caruso
The Charlie Cameron bump is fair dinkum AFL at its finest. A top-notch tackle followed by a bloody shocking decision!
Andrew Monaghan
If the AFL listens to us fans and members, they'll see their screw-ups and make changes. If not, they'll be out of a job when players walk out and fans stop showing up.
AFL is lowkey tryna get rid of the bump and tackle in the game, but they too scared to say it out loud. They gonna make teams and players switch up their game if someone gets hurt from bumping or tackling. Players already holding back on tackling when they used to go all out.
Connor Edwards
Come on, teams, coaches, and players! Let's show the AFL we're not messing around! Stand up to them before it's game over. Let's boycott games and make them rethink their actions.

It's just Touch Football, man. Rest in peace to the game we used to love.
I wanna see how the tribunal would've called it if Dangerfield was the one making that tackle, 'cause his hit on Walsh was just the same.
Ben Smith
Players need to stop using chicken wing tackles and driving opponents into the ground, and there should be more free kicks for tacklers diving on the back of opponents. Pushing in the back only seems to be penalized in marking contests.
David Clark
Shout out to those old players who sued the AFL for concussions and made them change the rules. Now, if a player gets a head knock, they have to retire straight away to cover the AFL's butt.
Ashley Conway
The AFL has bloody gone too far, got too much bloody power and is bloody killing this game. All clubs, coaches, and players need to bloody stand up and refuse to play for a week (aka go on strike) to show the AFL that these rule changes need to bloody stop.

The AFL big wigs should cozy up tonight, tune into State of Origin 3, and really pay attention to all 34 players going all out for their team without worrying about getting in trouble.

The AFL better make sure they're keeping those players safe from head bonks or they'll end up in the courtroom! It's all about the dough, not the players. And if that means messing up the game we adore, they couldn't give a hoot.

The AFL is a bloody joke, mate. First ya can't bump, now it seems ya can't tackle. Let's cut the crap and just make it touch footy, that's where it's heading.

Can't all the clubs team up and make the AFL dump these wack rules and bogus interpretations? The AFL is supposed to have our backs, right?

I wonder how many ex-players are involved in the class action against the AFL, as I am unsure about what is worse - the calls reaching the tribunal or the MRP upholding the original decision.
Jackson Wright
The AFL struggles to balance fan enjoyment and player safety, with instances of dangerous plays still occurring.

Fish and chip shops used to be the go-to spot for a cheap beach or park bench feast. But now, it's all about hitting up the pub or club for a killer weekday deal. These shops have blown up and some even have seating inside. Remember when they were tiny, with customers waiting outside for their name ... View More

It's like, ugh, seriously! I was born in '89 so I'm fashionably late to the milk bar scene, but dang, even those are extinct now. They were disappearing before covid, and now they're just ghost towns.
My regular complaint is that there are too many hot chips served with meals just to make the meal seem larger!

The expenses that come with running a small biz are straight up wrecking 'em. It sucks, but those higher costs gotta get tacked onto the price tag for the customers.

Back in the day, chip shops used to get real potatoes and hand peel and cut them into chips. But now, they just buy big bags of frozen fake chips instead. It's way easier, but not as tasty.
Commercial rents will decrease. I reckon you're a city slicker. Look at how the small towns are doing it tough. There's vacant shops all over the place. And why don't you, instead of living the good life, try your luck in a struggling town and start up your own fish and chip joint. Just remember, yo... View More
