    Am I the only person watching tonight for pretty much the sole reason of hoping Essendon finishes their season with more humiliation?

    Maybe some unhinged rough tantrum football from Essendon late in the game to give Collingwood a few suspensions for finals would be good, too.

    You’d be happy then Goffy?

    Caller on SEN reckons the Pies will drop tonight's game to avoid us in Week 1 of finals.

    Pies have lost 3 and won 2 in the last 5. The 2 wins were Port by 2 and a pretty [censored] Geelong by 8. They’re not in a form line where you’d drop a game to get Port instead of the dees. That would be the first act of a straight sets exit

    Yeah true. Who am I kidding. Another darling of the AFL with their armchair ride. 
    Hope we destroy them on Sunday. Absolute pretenders. 

    I reckon Blakey on Jake would be a match up worth seeing Binny Jnr.

    Fritsch is good to go……at least that is what I believe


    No mail, just he’s been training and it’s been 2 months…..I mean how long does he need???

    It’s the vibe of the thing

    Takes me back to the Dave Misson days

    We'll beat these [censored]

    But do we want to? I’d suggest we get 9 goals in front early in the 3rd and then put 15 on the bench. Have a ruck (spargs), one forward (Chandler) and one back (Disco Turner)

    What about poor old Shazza (Nibbla’s mum) who often sits with us. The first time she heard everyone yelling out “Dogga” to our former #6, she misheard and thought it was “Donga.” Nobody ever corrected her because it was never not funny to hear her screaming, “GO DONGA!” 😂

    I’m happy if she keeps yelling that out now 😁

    Supporters want some sort of certainty even when there is none! None of us know whether we are real contenders or pretenders like last year.

    The whole gammut of emotions are on offer! 

    Locking in a top four position is good but guarantees you nothing.

    It guarantees you a second chance if you stuff up in week 1

    It's about synergy and giving the forwards at least one game to understand whether they'll work together and how.

    There's every chance we play JVR, Melksham and Fritta in the same forwardline, with either Smith or TMac. Either alternative, they've never played together as a group before.

    Sydney in a tough game away from home, where they've got their backs up, is a very good dress rehearsal for the finals series.

    I’d like to see this Adam, but not sure the SCG is big enough for multiple points of entry into F50 to warrant three marking options (I think we need to go 2 with 4 crumbers). 
    I’m not even sure it’s a good dress rehearsal, because of the size of the ground. Good opponent though.

  9. I’m struggling with Gil throwing the goal umpire under the bus for a mistake rather than reviewing how the AFL can fix a potential future recurrence by amending the review system (procedures for initiating a review, quality of the review footage) to look after both the teams, the umpires and the paying members/supporters. It’s just lazy management, asleep at the wheel.

    It’s my hope/belief daz that Goody is trying to keep a few aces up his sleeve for finals and we’ll see a bit more of him in the guts when it matters.

    That said, he threw Petty forward against Brisbane in the finals last year when it was already too late, so what would I know.

    Thoughts on Laurie's game?

    Better than ok I thought. I was looking for reasons to drop him, but thought he showed confidence, some nice evasive skills with ball in hand and good foot skills. I’d like another look at him.

    I hear ya Roosty. Waking up on GameDay is never pleasant. I recommend you do what I do… say a lil prayer to the footy gods as you down *two coffees and a 600ml can of Red Bull. Works every time! Yes you’ll hit a wall just as the match starts but that’s when you initiate part 2 of Operation Pumped… sugar! Lollies and lots of ‘em! Any kind will do (I personally go with Skittles and Killer Pythons).

    *three coffees minimum. I’m currently waiting for my third which will be ready once Vikram, the 7/11 guy cleans the machine.



    Are/were you an élite athlete? That’s a pretty impressive and strict diet regime.
