we are playing geelong (arguably one of the best teams ever) at their home ground while they are on the rebound after losing 2 games in a row for the first time in 2 years - they have brought back in 1/2 dozen premiership players....I think this was always on the cards.

Don't know why, on such a windy day, they think that up-and-unders in Robbo's general direction are a good tactic. How many times is he going to get it against 3 opponents all 10cm taller than him? Has to be the lowest-percentage play possible.

robbo is a low percentage non trying footballer, iv been watching fall to the ground for 12 seasons, hes a disease in that forward line,if he didnt play with neitz beside him for 200 odd games he would be lucky to have 250 goals beside his name,he simply doesnt try when the opposition have the ball.

Ok, so matchday live on afl.com says that Bate drilled one from about 80 out... Is this true?

Jurrah about the only one that's shown something in my books (and Bruce is battling away hard in his 200th). His (Jurrah) pass to Petterd to set up our first goal was exquisite. Also, I think Bartram might be playing for his career and is playing really well, I think he can hold his head high. However, today Geelong are a cut above us.

Interesting to hear everyones thoughts on the Female commentator.

I don't think Richo is bringing much to the table.

I don't like her voice really, Just started to listen to it but it's doing nothing for me.

Don't really like hearing tim lane's voice either.

This is one of those games you'd love to sit and watch the replay with the umpires and get them to have to justify every carp decision.

Why are we bothering?

The umpires are going to make sure that the Cats win the premiership this year. Just call it off now - hand them the flag, hand us scully and we can all concentrate on how poor the Aussie cricket team are (don't get me started on those impires!!!!).

Seriously, the 1st half today was the most biased, 1 sided display of umpiring i've seen all year. You can't touch Geelong, and nothing they do gets paid. Its not like they need the assistance.

Would love the Cats to lose second place on percentage because they couldn't make any inroads after half time.

This game will please everyone. We lost as we knew we would so the tankers are happy, but we showed plenty, especially the young guns (but god how we need Scully!). Take away the charity goals and the junk-time goals to the Cats and it's even better.

Yep a great result.

The first quarter was the thing that killed us, because from there we won two of the three remaining quarters and really did well shutting Geelong's attack off the half back line... except for bloody Scarlett, who might be the only defender that needs to be defended!

The best aspect of today was that Jurrah, Grimes, Bennell and Morton showed the most exciting glimpses out on the ground, which gives us a lot of hope.

Jurrah and Grimes are on their way to superstardom, and Morton up forward is definitely a good future prospect.

To our credit we didn't completely crap ourselves after the first quarter and stood up.

The margin is about right when the worst team in the competition (apologies to Freo), play the best team in the competition.

Absolutely agree on Jurrah Grimes Bennell and Morton, but i'm surprised nobody has mentioned Bate. He was really good today, kicked some great goals and put on a lot of pressure up the ground. He may have been crap early in the season, but lately he's been showing a lot. If he keeps this up he's definitely going to be sticking around.

Master Bate played an excellent game today. Put him in front of a class Midfield & he will perform no doubt.

Agree on Bater! He is having a decent year in a forwardline that has been getting some pretty ordinary delivery from the midfield. Big future for Bater IMO

Call me sexist but i couldnt stand Kelli Underwoods call today, her voice is horrible, she makes alot of mistakes and she goes way over the top on nothing plays. If it was a male commentator she d be laughed off. But then when you look at blokes like Wallsy i probably shouldnt criticise..............

Not a good voice for radio either. Actually she looks much better than she sounds. Needs some timbre. Actually, as a woman, she could rightly get away with a few "what a turn on" (s) and "delicious" (s).
