The bump is dead.
Bumping people should be outlawed.
The game is too fast.
Congestion is killing footy.
The umpiring is a joke.
The umpiring this year is better.
The MRP system is too much of a lottery.
The MRP is bound by too many rigid protocols.
The food is too expensive.
I cant let my kids eat food from home when others are eating bought food
Memberships numbers are up again.
Ticket prices are too expensive.
Without good players the new clubs will struggle.
The AFL has given the new clubs too many high draft picks.
Bring back State of Origin footy.
No meaningless representative games please.
Massive blow-outs are killing interest in footy.
Kids should play scored games, even if they are one-sided affairs.
FOOTY IS DEAD.
Footy has just been redefined

"If he is found guilty I don't think there will be footy this weekend. Game will be gone. Close it up." Leigh Matthews on #Viney hullabaloo

#AFL footy is officially a non contact sport #sad #freeviney

After this Footy is dead to me for the next 31 minutes until 360 is on. I am that done. I can't even...

All @AFLPlayers need to come together on this one and do something about it #VineyGate

Yawn! Apparently the game is dead again is it? Hoe, hum! See you all at the footy on the weekend! #AFL #Vinney #tribunal #OverReactingMuch

Can't bump? Kids can't tackle. Kids can't play to win. Might as well go and play a violin because there is no contact #thisisajoke

Deplorable state of affairs! How has #Viney been found guilty??

What a joke Viney getting 2 weeks. It was a collision not a head high bump. Flex your muscles AFL bosses & overturn this ridiculous decision

...may as well wind up the blog.
Or start my own 'Association' for supporters.
Or get a job as a Hun reporter, who specialize on cobbling tweets together and calling it 'news'.
Or it is all an AFL ruse to get us talking football-related matters without noticing HOW CRAP the next 3 weeks of 6 games a week footy is?
That's right - here is your lot this week. Enjoy its brevity!
Even better try some local footy action instead.
- A full Saturday of Tasmanian State League action.For Victorians, the VFL has gone out in sympathy with the AFL. Only 3 games this weekend.
- Saturday or Sunday with the SANFL.
- Round 8 of WAFL footy (with a bye to South Fremantle).
- All the NEAFL action from all teams (except the Gold Coast Suns reserves and Redland on byes).
Is there something on in Melbourne this weekend that the AFL HQ bigwigs need to be at, other than footy? Any one or any relative from HQ getting married?
THE MEZZOCULO INDEX
Six games, twelve bubbles.
The Saints and the Giants might do better than we tipped too.
