Hogan could get a week for acting and flopping to the ground.

They are cracking down on this.

He was chopped in the throat, yes he fell (but being a biased supporter) I excuse this as the force was hard enoung to justify the free he was making sure the ump saw it. I also think it is a hell of allot better than him turn around and smacking Carlisle and getting weeks. Was furious he missed though. Was still BOG.

I love Viney, but think he should play 3/4 of a game at Casey before returning

You're probably right, but I live in hope the fittness department can weave the same magic they did with Tommy McD, is about time 4two6 didn't equal half a season..

Is anyone still questioning Petracca vs McCartin draft order?

One piece of play today said it all for me.  McCartin pushes Gawn in the back, giving away the free.  The ball swiftly goes coast to coast, to end up in the hands of Trac for a goal.  Was a thing of beauty...!   Was no doubt not lost on a lot of Saints fans...!

If you watch the replay, watch closely, it’s not Richard Tambling or Aaron Fiora. Although one might make that mistake, as he [censored] himself as much as those 2 combined.

Brayshaw played his best game for us today and l could not fault his game . He was clean and moved with grace and confidence. I am sure his parents would have been proud of him today as always. However  l was.

Dom Tyson 27 possession 7 marks and a great goal  That is two consistent games in a row and two winning games you helped win.

Channel & News reported it as a contact hit for which he was given a free......i couldnt see it and neither did the commentators, but maybe it was there...?

I saw Neita at the ground before the game. He looked to be in fine form.

Was it just fatigue in the last 1/4, but we were caught out of position trailing a sainter a fair few times. If fatigue , fair enough. 21 and sunny in brissy next week but sundown early (5pm), hopefully weather not a factor.

I'll be interested to see what happens with this - the umpire was on the right side of the contest and paid a free kick instantly, so he must have hit him high.  He might have played it up a little but I doubt he'll get anything more than a fine for it.

So , hang on, Hogan got hit, Umpire pays free kick, therefore must have been high, no report against Carlisle? Hogan in trouble?

Not having a shot at Wise...butWTF

Umpire signalled at the time Hogan got hit in the throat, which is high. Hogan fell over, got the free and everyone is saying he overplayed it and dived. 

My point was that, if anything against Hogan is to occur in regards to his supposed dive, it will be small fine, not a suspension as another poster suggested.

Quality game today.  You have to accept that they were tired and there's another six day break coming so we may have a hard time up north next week.  We still did everything we needed to.  Never looked like we weren't in control of the game. 

Gus continues to show us that his mojo is coming back and it's great to see. 

Oliver is a freak, but he needs to kick more often.  He's actually a beautiful field kick when he decides to use it. 

Spargo continues to impress. 

The three roaming tall forwards is working nicely right now. I don't know that the Weed is ready for AFL just yet, but he's showing signs and it's probably worth persisting with him. 

I have to agree that ANB is probably closest to getting the chop.  For a while he looked like he was going to step up to another level, but he's fallen right back again.

Gee Charlie Spargo doesn’t do much wrong. Makes good position, looks composed and disposes well. Good kick for goal as well. Lot to like.

Nothing will happen.  The replay only shows the angle from behind Hogan, so you can't see Carlisles left arm swing up and hit Hogan in the throat. Watch slowly and you see the action. I think Hogan's fall was genuine, more because he was hit in the throat off guard and sort of stumbled over.

How many times over the last ten years did demons "run teams back into form?"

I know it wasn't a massively classy or tough game... but I'm still celebrating heartily. We beat them a couple of times last year, but we haven't been "used to" beating the Saints, particularly at Etihad, in a long time. They're awful. Putrid in fact. Even with the draft gifts they've gotten. We're a 5-10 goal better side.

I know we have a long way to go. But I'm already celebrating this being the new normal. Go demons.
