I found Dwayne's one-eyed Geelong commentary embarrassing as always.

He tried to make the argument that both sides got something out of the performance. He said Geelong got to see their young players unveiled, what he didn't mention was how pathetic their list is. Their main outs were their three superstars. But across the board, their skills were terrible. In 2 years time they're going to be in big trouble. Fantastic.

No forwardline, turnover merchants down back and a severe lack of midfield depth. Two A+ graders have papered over some incredibly weak foundations and some recent retirements will expose them properly for the first time in years.

If Dangerfield cops any sustained injury, they'll finish well outside the 8 (as they did the year prior to his recruitment).

It was nauseating. Even more pathetic is how Gerard and the other commentators actually backed him up.

I'm really not sure how much longer Dangerfield and Selwood can carry the rest of them.

According to David King, Geelong gained the most out of JLT1 as their young guns got a run and we got to see them coming through.

Your guns??? They got wolliped by the bottom side. If we can tag dangerfield out of the game then I’m predicting we win by 10 goals.

As they did last season, Geelong just bombed the ball into their forward 50. Having Lever there who’s a brilliant reader of the ball will be a massive addition for our round 1 game.

What’s the point of a pre-season competition if you’re not going to play your best available? 

You want your best players ready in September. The teams that play finals regularly worry about seeing their younger players blooded in pre-season....

Wrong Richmond went into last years jlt with their best team available, and set out to win every game, so who u going to copy Geelong not playing their best and being pretenders, or Richmond who came from the clouds, it is important to be at your best in September, but if you don't start the season well you end up like collingwood, playing their best in the last 6 rounds but with few wins. Richmond won the first 5 rounds and the last 5 rounds, we were 2 and 3 missed finals, Sydney were 0 and 6, and run out of gas in the finals.

But hay you follow the pretenders I would rather follow the Richmond lead.

I did say the teams that play finals regularly but you chose not to read that. You might recall Richmond finished 13th in 2016.

And hay is for horses.

That's pretty much what Dwayne was saying. Massive derpers.

JLT1 is the only game you can experiment with now as you can have extra on the bench, you would be mad not to have your best 22 for JLT2

Yes they did come 13 th in 2016 and their review of that season was to change the way they treated pre season games, to put their best teams and go out to win those games

Tigers v Roos tonight at Princes park.

Both team near full strength on paper .

Tigers by 50 plus unless North play a  defensive game and then it's Tigers by around 30.

Caveat.... Tigers "stars" may only play around half the match which would impact the scoreline.

What a ridiculous free kick against Thompson. Can defenders do anything these days?

North showing their true colours tonight - they'll be competitive in games up until half time and then fall away.  They haven't looked like it at all since mid-way through the second term.  

The Tigers look as though they'll do a better job than the Doggies did in defending their flag, but they are still a beatable side.

Richmond getting their premiership bonus - an extra 10-20% leeway in free kicks.  Get away with stuff, and get given lollies.
