17. BACK HERE, AGAIN

No need to add more than what has already been said.
From 2014.
We Are All Diminished.

And from earlier this year
"knob-ends like Panahi and her ilk are not worth additional airtime and debate. That they are too daft to recognise that there is a latent undercurrent of racism behind comments and boos toward Goodes says more about them than the morons in the stands."

But Russell Jackson also details it nicely.
"The Goodes goal celebration was the most interesting and symbolic event to occur on a football field this year, a celebration of a culture all Australians could do better to embrace and understand. It might prove to be the most important football moment of the decade, a Winmar moment if you will. That the reaction of so many football fans was not one of curiosity and perhaps a little self-examination but one of childish name-calling and petulant booing will reflect poorly on all of us when the pages on Goodes are written into the game’s history."

I'm will not countenance anyone who remains intransigent on this issue.

A solid, but unspectacular 6 from 9. Key highlight being the four games tipped inside a 12 point margin.
Win some, etc.


All the key table movement is at the foot.

The top 2 are now streeting the rest. Brisbane sink further, while the Saints are one of the great positives of the season.
