    Nah, they’re just completely mid focused. It’s a shame.

    Gold Coast’s highest vote getter was Fiorini with 5 votes. Wow.

    I’d just like to note that someone deacribed Gus as “not AFL standard” in the prelim match thread.
  4. This sums it up for me, although I’d say 7/10. It was one game. Yes, he was beyond putrid yesterday, but it’s one game. When we are playing well as a team and have ascendency in the middle, he steadies the ship at the back. Would anyone really dispute him playing an important role in the Semi? He will again be useful to that end next season. Which will be his last.

    Post Match Discussion - Preliminary Final

    The 34 tackles is what has me stuffed. That is appallingly low for this side. I recall the commentary saying halfway through the second quarter that we’d had a total of nine tackles, five of which were in our forward 50. That’s four tackles across the rest of the ground approaching halftime. Can that really just be mental? Surely not. For whatever reason we just couldn’t get near them.
  6. Let’s go with 2004. A quick feed is a good feed.
  7. As a Melbourne fan I am used to watching grand finals as a neutral. I’ve seen grand finals where I’ve preferred one side to win than the other. I’ve also seen grand finals where I’ve been ambivalent about the outcome. This year I’m faced with an uncomfortable scenario: loathing at the prospect of either side winning the flag. Two well supported, well resourced clubs that have already won flags in recent years and whom we know are insufferable in the aftermath of winning. What a fairytale. Pass the tissues cause I’m choking up over here. No wait, it’s bile. False alarm. I can’t bring myself to simply not care. Their fan bases alone are enough to put anyone off the idea. West Coast - a sea of mindless booing drones, all wearing the exact same blue polo and blue cap they received when they upsized their meal at Hungry Jacks. They repulse me in a deep and meaningful way. Collingwood - little need be said. We all know. One of my mates is one. Well, I say mate. He’s more a friend from high school that I’ve never managed to rid myself of. The thought of him tasting ultimate success again fills me with....what’s the opposite of joy? Seething hatred is in the ballpark.. Both teams have their fair share of unlikeable players. Taylor Adams on one side. Mark LeCras on the other. I thought I may have found the tiebreaker with the feel good story of Travis Varcoe. Then I remembered he plays with that tattooed ballbag Jeremy “omg I carry a photo of Bucks in my wallet!” Howe. No luck there. I said in the post match that I’d be barracking for the umpires. On reflection, I think I’ll be barracking for the umpires mutating and going on a zombie feeding frenzy. Mason Cox being chased around the MCG by a zombie Razor Ray. That will placate me. Pretty much anything that spares me from having to watch one of these muppet ensembles celebrating at the final siren, I will gladly accept. If you can see an upside to either of these sides winning a premiership that has somehow escaped me, let me know. If not, wake me up when this one is over. Or when the ground has opened up and swallowed all players and officials in one glorious gulp.

    The fumbling and misfired handballs in the first half were so unlike us. We just couldn’t get our ball movement going and the opposition deserves credit for that. They did their homeworkL Fought it out in the second half. Could’ve rolled over. It’s not much but it’s something. The booing of the crowd really is farcical. Barely a braincell between the lot of them. I’ll be cheering on the umpires next week.

    At least they haven’t extended their lead. I’ll take that at this point.
