    The Moment: Rnd 6, 2024 vs StKilda

    The moment, the best, most courageous moment that caught your eye in tonight's game against StKilda .
    Was it the moment that told you 'we've got this' or 'we lost this one right here'? Or was it the moment that you went 'wow....that is crazy courage'

    Or was it a collection of moments that you thought 'oh dear that's sure to produce a flood of WOOF melts on par with GG's post GF loss..

    Cody's 3 goals in the first quarter was the moment for me. He's got us off a about 3 fast starts now.

    Absolutely set the tone.

    In particular the ferocity he hit the front and square ball to draw the free kick and goal to kick it off.

    Naughton's goal on the run. It was a sign that everything that had gone wrong last week was going to go right tonight.

    When Cornes wrote a shit article about the coach. Players rallied and played for the coach and the club. Big middle finger to Caro, Barnett and Cornes, go crawl back under your coach until you got anything better to write about.

    My moment was actually two moments that combined made one statement.\

    In the second when the Saints invariably regrouped and were trying to problem solve, they looked like they were starting to unlock the game on their terms. They were building momentum.

    They got a couple of goals, and the margin, shrank to under 5 goals. And then we hit back with a goal.

    Saints then kicked another, and then we immediately hit back with a perfect clearance, mark and goal. And any real hope for a Saints comeback culminated at that point.

    When Ross Lyon told Fox Footy he was ‘worried about tonight’ before the game. Reminiscent of Bevo before the Eagles debacle last season.

    Mine was Weightman earning that free kick in the first. He just went harder and faster than anyone else at that crumb. Could see then that we were on.

    Probably pregame pics of English and Naughton walking into the stadium.
    But then again, I'm an Internet poster and Bevo is a premiership coach so draw your own conclusions.

    That’s a great point, I think in the game day thread I said something along the lines of “here we go” the play had all the markers of a momentum swing and us grinding to a halt. But we never let them get off the leash fully, even if the goals did come a little too easily.

    I want to say it was because the Saints were so poor, and they were, but it was up to us to put the score on the board, so credit where it is due.

    Our average winning margin this year is over 10 goals, average losing margin is 26, that?s not bulldog like. Sadly the losing games to teams we shouldn?t hasn?t changed.
    If we actually look at and season so far we have lost to 2 good teams and Essendon was the only real let down.
    We are not travelling as bad as it seems.

    Dale's long range goal early in the 2nd qtr. St Kilda clearly increased their pressure and intensity in the first few mins after 1/4 time and didn't capitalise on the scoreboard. Dale summed up that situation beautifully and continued our scoreboard momentum with that goal.

    The Treloar goal in the 2nd

    The saints were trying to fight back and got the margin back to around 30 points and had a bit of momentum. The Treloar snap squeezed the air out of them and we got momentum back and kicked a couple more to extend the lead to 49 points at half time. They weren't coming back then.

    Yep, all our timely responses in the 2nd qtr (Dale long range, Treloar snap, last 2 minutes of centre square dominance - well done Ed Richards) completely sapped their momentum - they were the better team for large parts of the 2nd qtr

    It wasn't the pivotal moment of the match, but I loved it when Harmes quickly doubled back and halved a marking contest on the wing against Rowan Marshall, who would have taken an uncontested mark on his own otherwise. Those acts are gold and feed the rest of the team.
