I'm kind of confused at the distinction you're making then!

Oh, wait, no, I think I get you. Yeah I guess the 'gee' part of Geelong is said quicker than the 'gee' of 'gee whiz'. I'd never really thought about that before, heh.

the way these commentators are saying it, they're pronouncing a short i, which has completely confounded me. It's not spelled Gilong....My initial reaction when faced with a double E is to pronounce it.........E.

I guess my point is that I never realized I had never heard the word spoken aloud by anyone other than Travis or myself, and definitely never by a native speaker, so I was kind of surprised I was pronouncing it soooo wrong.

The commentators pronounced it "juh-long" (with the J soft like (Jacques), and that threw me off a bit. Gee(whiz)long is probably how I will continue to pronounce it, because I'm American.

Really was only a matter of time until the Cats opened it up. Gold Coast's disposals are sloppy and seemingly without purpose. Geelong's are crisp.

About fucking time that you scored some goals, Geelong!

Charlotte's started going for the Gold Coast in the hopes of a hilarious upset result.

Maybe she should start cheering for Port instead, this one's looking pretty out of hand.

I'm going for Gold Coast in the faint hope that Carlton can begin their slow march to first. With Essendon's bye, fourth is secured.

NM lost, I'm going to assume Port loses, and GC is probably going to be put out of their misery. It's time for Brisbane to move all the way up to 14th

EDIT: Or at least 15th.

Wow, I can't believe the Gold Coast got just ONE goal in the second half. They just totally burnt out after such a good start. And I'm disappointed Ablett and his old team-mates were such good sports, talking and joking with each other rather than giving us some entertaining dust-ups and confrontations!

Looks like Richmond vs Port could still go either way? But I'm off to bed now so I guess I'll find out in the morning ...

And heh, good to see the Lions moving up the ladder a bit!

Richmond have reverted to Poormond levels of footballing quality. Hopeless. Against arguably the worst team in the AFL no less!

Wait, Karmichael Hunt kicked a goal? Awesome. Even though Geelong ended up crushing GC in the end, I take it was an entertaining game and provided the GC fans with much excitement.

It probably actually is closer to Geeee-long than Australians realise, we just pronounce certain syllables incredibly quickly in this accent.

Khunt's first goal was a lovely moment.

Watching that seriously made me happy. A simply great moment and it really did seem to feel like a 'eureka!' moment. Hope he and Folau succeed.
