Ludicrous really.

McLaughlin should go for the Hird invite.

If the rooting was between consenting adults then having the men disgraced implies the chicks really didnt know what they were doing

I think it was what I have been doing Embee. My point is that they were consenting, they're adults. There is no way only both men should be the fall guys.

Had it been a case of power and exploitation, it would be different, but the men while apologising, have admitted that this is not the case. The women are culpable too.

If we're talking equality, everything has to be equal.

Tend to agree with comments that rooting an office colleague is hardly a sackable offence. Obviously it was deemed "not a good look" by the boss.

But it's been a bad month for McLachlan, with these 2 resignations plus the Musi one-puncher debacle.

On McLachlan - he finally seems to have developed a spine after some pretty weak handling of some previous controversies.

If you're in a significantly stronger/prestigious/powerful/influential position than the woman in the organisation, which is normally the case, than it shouldn't matter on the relationship status of the parties or the consensuality (which may not be a word).

Playing with the help is stupid. They should be sacked for stupidity. If they're that into power relationships they should get a hooker. It's just as easy and you only pay once.

Poor sod, he's done it at least twice.

I think that win secures a finals spot for the Cats, not otherwise certain before today; and makes it nearly impossible for the much improved Hawks, ditto.

Hawks would need to win every game


the toughest are Sydney at MCG , Richmond at MCG Dogs at Etihad and Freo at Subi

The way this season has gone they will win those and lose to the Roos and Blues

Yeah they'll just miss.

So today was the last time Hodge played the Cats.

I'm guessing the final 8 will consist of Adelaide, GWS, Cats, Port, Sydney, Essendon, and two of Melbourne, Richmond, St Kilda, and West Coast. On paper the last two should be Richmond and Melbourne, but Richmond may yet contrive to come 9th again.

We haven't had one for a few years. Your Pondies have snagged a few - Mayne,Wells, Howe, Jesse Whitw, Treloar, Adams. No doubt Treloar does not regret its decision to go successful Collingwood over the Tigers. No doubt many similar ilk champs will go to the pies as long as Bucks and Eddiehead stay.

Incidentally the Bloods had only two players from other clubs play tonight. We develop players. Melican, Papley, Newman, Smith, Lloyd all started on our rookie list.

You have probably forgotten over the years Greg Williams, Gerard Healy, Paul Williams, Paul Roos, Tony Lockett, just to name a few of the big signings of the Swans, but in more recent times, Mumford, Hall, Franklin, Tippett, and deals for Kennedy, Richards etc. The academy is a big advantage, because it means even finishing up high you can still net early draft picks like Heeney and Mills which really should be going to those clubs which finish much lower.

Mummy, Kennedy were b graders, while Sheedy did not want Teddy. Bloods won the bidding war over Plugger. The Roys were near the end when an ageing Roos turned up. Admit Paul Williams was sweet after the Pondies had nicked A Rocca, Licuria, Morwood

The Bloods have two good young players from the Academy but have grown the game. For years Melb clubs have augmented the cap inc the five figure appearance fees for Footy Show gigs. Pondies via Eddyhead over featured. The near monosyllabic Cloke had his contract padded via regular shambling appearances on that 'show'. NSW and Qld players do not get the same deals.

Any other club, would 'grow' the game in exchange for exclusive rights to a talent pool. Mumford was highly rated by the Cats, but they couldn't match what the Swans offered. Hawks also had salary cap issues, hence Kennedy's attraction to a fatter contract which was in the COLA period. Licuria came to the Pies much to my chagrin for a very early draft pick and he couldn't kick. BTW Nick Davis also went to the Swans from the Pies and Longmire was courting him at training on the Thursday before the 2002 GF.
