    Ok Cloke or Redpath boys? When Roughead returns to partner Boyd in the ruck I cant see us playing all of them.

    On a positive note I was really pleased with Tom Boyd' game. He took a big step forward tonight.

    Redpath is a good VFL footballer. Had a chance to make it less than a goal with plenty of time and stuffed the set shot. He has one job: convert chances. If he can't do that, he's useless to us.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    It's the same as when a legal tackle slips above the shoulders and a player has their head ripped off. Even if the player drops the footy before the high contact the free for too high will be paid.

    You were making up excuses for an easier shot from Boyd earlier in the game. It happens, bad kixking is bad football. It was heart breaking seeing them ram it home from 45 to outside 50m consistantly.

    They get EVERYTHING down here..!

    Catching train home just shaking my head the whole way. The Murphy holding the ball decision was an ABSOLUTE STINKER!!!!!

    I had a woman behind me actually chastise me for her foot being crushed because I stood up to celebrate a goal, and when I sat down, she'd let it drift between my fold up seat and backrest when I sat back down.

    When I stood up and applauded our goals in the third, I (and my mates) was continually told to "siddown!."

    I relish the opportunity to do this mob in September... If we get there..! Need to extract the digit and play four quarters..

    Mate sitting next to me on the train just said to me, "I haven't been treated like that in Adelaide, Perth or Sydney - ever!"

    Geelong's a rough, rough, insular little city. A trip down here turns a team that you might've had no problem with into a team you will openly despise!!! It's a rough little town filled with some very backward, unlikable people!

    Our selection was fine. Look back at each of Taylor's goals and tell me hat playing an extra tall would have prevented them. It was our running backs who got us back into the match.
    I thought I was wrong once but I was mistaken.

    We lost this game with a bad 2nd quarter - not even one point kicked . The ball spent the whole time in their F50.

    Very disappointed once again is all I can say.

    We simply lost this game because we did not play 4 quarters. The 1st and 3rd quarters from us were very good but the 2nd was absolutely woeful. The 4th term we did a bit more compared to the 2nd but not enough of what we did in the 3rd which was our best of the night.

    12.9 with our kicking is an improvement and Dickson was a big help in that area.

    Players I thought who did well: Wallis, Jong, Wood is a great intercepter, Bob although that fumble at the end of the 2nd was Unmurph like. Dale, Williams were alright. Smith was ok as well.

    Overall very disappointed the result and losing for the 2nd week in a row on a Friday night. We are back at home next week at Etihad and must get a win there before the bye and go 6-4.

    51-48 inside 50 in their favour tonight so relatively even but yeah just could not get anything going our way that quarter. Had we played that 2nd quarter like we did the 3rd we probably would have won tonight.

    He did. It was at least an 85 metre penalty

    We lack leadership in the big moments there is no doubt about that.
    Every opposition team has worked it out and park 3 intercept markers deep in defence. We won a premiership be dropping our eyes and hitting targets. Now we've gone back to long bombs to Snake.

    Thought Selwood sucked the umpire in and fell forward. Cloke had nowhere else to go.

    I hope it does as I have planned
    Losing her again is more than I can bear
    I kiss the cold, white envelope
    I press my lips against her name
    Two hundred words. We live in hope

    Disagree. From memory none of their goals came from marks where they outsized their opponent, almost all came from spillages around the 45m mark or from centre clearances.

    Adams and Wood dominated the air, as demonstrated by their main big man Hawkins doing stuff all.

    Our selection was poor because in a game where their only strength is their midfield, we failed to counter that effectively. In hindsight Libba would have been good for that, despite his shite form, and McLean is another who seems to have a knack of influencing ball ups, including at crucial stages of the match.
    I should leave it alone but you're not right
