Tom Mitchell


#321

Let me correct myself by previously inferring ISIS I am in no way condoning what they do or stand for. My intention was to emphasise how much I hate the AFL.

In retrospect poor choice of words, - apologies to veryone.

But i still hate those karnts for taking 5 years of mine and my football cubs life away.

Sorry, Last post on this topic out of the saga thread.


#322

It was more than media and ASADA that did the damage.
I’m sure the AFL would have preferred that it all went away as quickly as possible.


#323

I actually think the AFL totally misjudged how it was all going to play out.

They thought they could control every aspect of the event but it escalated into a far bigger beast than they anticipated.

Just an amateur organisation.


#324

Was AOD legal?


#325

Instabans coming up. 1st and last warning.


#326

Just quietly, Jaegar O’meara is 81 to 1 for the brownlow. With Mitchell down at Hawthorn I don’t mind those odds for a roughy.

Don’t mind Shiel or Merrett at 51 to 1 either.


#327

Do people get refunded for taking Mitchell early?


#328

Do people get refunded if they back a winner in the Cup in June, and it doesn’t get a start?
No.


#329

Up here in some circumstances they do get refunded… but oh well you know better.


#330

They do in some cases here too…but not legally. Ex-chairman of Racing Victoria tried to get a refund when his horse didn’t get up for the Cup. Got the lemonade. I worked with the guy. You could trust him as far as you could spit…into the wind…particularly if you had a good-looking missus. That was an entry fee though, not a bet.


#331

What if your hate for the AFL is stronger than that you have for ISIS?


#332

It’s not complicated guys.

Lots of sympathy for Mitchell or any other human being who breaks their leg badly.

Zero sympathy for Hawthorn. My hatred for them is only surpassed by my hatred for Fark Carlton. Hope they finish last, have a decade down the bottom and then finally merge with Melbourne to form the greatest fair weather supporter club in history. Fark them; their families, their ancestors etc etc


#333

Mitchell down, Wingard to go.


#334

Did you end up using your telescope to spy on the neighbours and become convinced that the neighbour had murdered his wife?


#335

We’ve gone from Mitchell racks up meaningless touches, to the Hawks are rooted without Mitchell in an instant.


#336

I bet you have a few more yarns :blush:


#337

:rofl: if only. I grew up on a farm where the nearest house was at least a 1km away. If only I was ever gifted a telescope!


#338

It’s only a matter of time before another saga at another club surfaces, and if the afl can’t control it I will roast pascal marshmallows, both pink and white, over it’s burning corpse.


#339

I don’t have any sympathy for other clubs and thier supporters not after how they treated Essendon during the saga they can all gagf.


#340

Anyone who rejoices in injuries to others needs to seriously examine themselves. Tit for tat bullshit is for children.

Especially given that last I checked, Tom Mitchell had absolutely nothing to do with the saga, nor have I ever heard him express a single thought about it.
