    AFL 2020 Matchday

    Lets use this threads for game day talk and what not

    Fully expect Richmond to absolutely crush Collingwood tomorrow. Im thinking Collingwood have a bad year this season. Alot of their ability revolves around players who tend to outrun their opponents. Alot harder to do with the shorter quarter

    Richmond by 30

    I also expect Hawthorn to take care of Geelong. Im tipping Geelong to miss the 8 myself. That midfield is just too slow for what should be a faster tempo game this year

    Quite some time ago now but Collingwood were very impressive against the Dogs. Do rate them myself.

    I think the extended break could benefit Richmond style wise, with Collingwood a possession based team while Richmond are a pressure based team. I guess it depends how much skills drop off, could actually see drop off in tackling since lack of contact training.

    So yeah good chance one of them wins

    I actually lean the opposite that the Tigers are harmed by shorter quarters, the pressure style of game wears opponents down, hence them being incredible later in quarters/games over the past few years, with less time I think that's harder to achieve.

    Plus, don't you clints remember the Pies GF effort, faded hard, they love to blow their load early.

    Hmmm..... Different way of thinking about it but it is a good point. It can go either way.

    I also tend to think Collingwoods junk time issues is more of a mental midget issue then a fitness one myself though.

    Not looking forward to the showdown. Think if we played them in R2 when it was scheduled we would have got absolutely pantsed. With the delay and what looks like garbage conditions I'm hoping it'll be a close affair.

    I'm so fucking glad fantasy is back though...and gambling.
    We demand an investigation into the replacement of referee Rafshan Irmatov and his departure at a difficult time in such an important match. We ask for an examination of the grassland that was not suitable for the Syrian team, while Australian players seem to be wearing shoes that cling to the long grass, so we saw Syrian players fall during the game, while Australia's players are steady.

    Adelaide are in for 10 years of pain. That is the worst list ive seen in recent memory. It has nothing going for it. Like absolutely nothing

    Tigers by 5. Caddy and Nakervis are big outs. Should be close. Both teams will just want to play some footy finally.

    Nankervis was dropped and is playing in the ressies.

    He has no place in a 16 minute game. Id say Tom Lynch backs up Soldo

    Agree, can't play 2 ruckmen with 16min quarters. Players like Mason Cox probably don't get a game this season unless injuries occur.

    I'd forgotten how insanely awful channel 7 coverage is, no Foxtel right now (tossing up just passing in general) but good god it's a race to the bottom.

    I think the "best" moment so far was BT trying to pronounce asterisk...

    One game of 7 coverage might force me towards paying for Foxtel!

    Limited games in 4K, like 1 per week at best.

    Channel 7 could've chosen any Collingwood goal sound bite from the psg few years with 50k+ fans and they decide to use a sound bite from a norf/dogs game with 10k people.

    Did love the pre-game coverage of channel 7 trying to convince us that all these game time changes are for the players...

    Shorter quarters... so the fans pay for this.

    15 seconds extra after each goal... so that's an extra ad.

    Longer 1/4 and 3/4 time breaks... yeah, that's ads.

    So effectively the game goes for the same total time but we get 25 minutes of extra ads and less game time but, yeah, sure it's for the players.

    Had forgotten how they manage to jam there fucking woeful ads in... Don't really get the point of all the extra ads if you're just promoting your shit awful shows in all of them...

    Typical #FuckGil and #SHocking though isn't it, probably looked at the NFL and NBA and went "what's the worst thing about those two sports for the fans?" "The nauseous amount of ads obviously" "Cool, lets do that then".

    If they legit going to have a fake crowd, then they really should record some boos.

    doesnt seem right to have a shit goal review and no abuse.

    What a joke.

    These reviews are dumb. If you don't have clear evidence you can't overturn it...

    Well it's nice to know with all that's going on in the world, we can still rely on afl score reviews being completely wrong
