With the season approaching it’s halfway mark, and many teams now becoming identifiable as a hard-working unit (Hawthorn), not living up to their potential (Western Bulldogs) or simply not being interested in the game (not looking at anyone, Melbourne), it’s the time of year where football becomes very intriguing.

We are going into Round 3 of the 2011 AFL Premiership Home and Away season and we are yet to see the Tribunal sit (from H&A games). Will this week be the week or will the Match Review panel be it again this week? We know that Campbell Brown has at least one case to […]

Video – Tribunal – Brown out?

One of the worries of Suns picking up Campbell Brown and making him Vice Captain was that he is known to have white line fever and be suspect to brain fades. Well it only took two games for these to come to the fore. There were two incidents that will be a chance to make […]
