  1. What's interesting is that we should have three teams from last years 8 not make it this year North, Hawks and Swans..... will we take one of those three places?
  2. Was just looking at the round next week. Is there any circumstance (assuming we win) that the GWS match is of no consequence to them? Am I right in saying that Hawks playing last match will ensure this won't happen.
  3. We want Geelong to win today don't we? Just to give the best chance of them having locked up a top 4 spot pre our game?
  4. Watching the dogs v north game and Seeing th Bont made me ask did we have the chance to draft him. Evidently we did if we had not have done the Dom and Salem thing. With benefit of hindsight, what would we do now? What we did? Take Kelly? Take the Bont? For mine, we do what we did. I say this in the hope that Christian gets over his poor run of luck and is that classy player we need, Yze style!
  5. Surely Pederson has done enough now to hold his spot. He is that Leigh Brown type. Prefer seeing him pinch hit in the ruck instead of Watts. Would love to see Weid play a few more this season. love that AVB, Brayshaw, Trac are all playing together. Max = man crush Viney = same as above we are getting better, but still above the shoulders. Got to keep improving in the mind as much as physically during pre season. Heard Clarko post match. I respect him, but no need to mention that Hawthorn "have dominated sides, including Melbourne for a long time". i think he is trying to deflect attention from the side because they have probably been fortunate to be on top given so many close wins. This loss if analysed will show Hawks not unbeatable. The ladder is a lot closer now too. Regarding the Hawks....watch this space....
  6. A quick look of the ladder reveals that a win against Port next weekend (not a given!) and a Dogs win v Collingwood would have us two games and % above 10th. Implying that we would be in a battle where basically only 9 teams could make the 8 and we would be one ... Can we dream of a win in Darwin or is that madness?
  7. Dead right! Been in myself for over 12 years, thought I would bring the rest of the family on during less depressing times!!
  8. Singed up myself, wife and son yesterday.....one day too early by the sounds..../damn!
  9. PS That score on Chunk was the lowest of any of the captains.
  10. I agree with this thread. Mentioned it in the post game thread. They must think only tigers supporters were watching. Drove me mad. yesterday the HS had an article rating the captains. Labelled Chunk a captain courageous. Then Ling gave him 6/10. Cotchin......7/10?!?! Joke.
  11. Felt the whole game the commentators were making comment as though there only people watching were Richmond supporters. As though it was all about Richmond and not us. Extremely happy we got over the top of them. Pumped right now. Viney, Gawn, Bernard....there are so many...awesome. to those that jumped off the Paul Roos bandwagon, get back on. Believe and enjoy the ride!
  12. I made comment on Geelong's goal kicking, but holy hell, Brisbane have 20 behinds!!!
  13. Don't disagree! But unfortunately it doesn't look like they will. Have kicked two majors since.....
  14. By my count, Geelong have kicked 1.14 in their last 15 scoring shots.....
  15. A few things: when we do well this year it has been Goodwins influence. Now we serve up a pile of steaming turd and it is Roos fault. It's the whole coaching group, good and bad. Losing today cuts deep. Sherry has always said that Melbourne are soft and a poor excuse for a football club, he would have been delighted to have the opportunity to round up the troops today for their big show of faith. And he saw another classic Melbourne failure. We can't handle expectation at all. I have been worried about outer slow starts all year, today we did it again, and fear of failure was evident. Mer got beaten by a team that had no one of quality in it, except for Daniher who did his best to keep us in it with bad kicking. We should have lost by more. Jack Viney was interviewed pre game and they asked if winning two in a row was a big thing. He said it was. Well, we need to start again. Winning two straight should never be a big thing for a half reasonable club. God I feel flat. North will be licking their lips!
