I had preconceptions that you were a good winner.

After sitting next to a Crows fan that shouted and swore the whole game and still didn't have the balls to stay right to the end, I can't help but be a little more than happy that WCE won. Not to mention the fact that for all the games I've been to, this is only the second time I've actually seen the Eagles win.

Still disappointing to see the Crows doing so bad though (it felt quite cruel for the Eagles to let them within a sniff in the 3rd quarter and then trample over them in the last), although I wouldn't entirely put the blame on Neil Craig, just as I was foolish to put the blame on Worsfold the past few years.

Also, Geelong are such an incredible side and I'll be genuinely sad when their time at the top comes to the end, whether it's next year or in a few years.

I spent about half an hour looking for a quote by a Roman commander after he surveyed the wreckage of Sparta and talked about how awesome they used to be, but I couldn't find it. Anyway, I'm sure it would have basically summed up how I'm going to feel.

Oh Essendon, that's just depressing.

you guys are playing sydney again? Geez I reckon they played about 4 weeks ago. Hate the new scheduling.

Eh, it was round 6. Just been an exciting month of sports for you, I suppose.

Did they change the way they handle scheduling? Obviously, I wouldn't know if something has changed besides the usual shuffle.

Up until maybe 5 years ago the teams who played each other in rounds 1-7 would again play each other in the same order from rounds 16-22. So if that was still inplace Carlton would play Sydney again in round 21. If that makes sense.

Now it's more to do with tv ratings and revenue for the AFL.

Not sure why I tipped Melbourne either

The Rd 1-15 (16-17 now), rinse repeat first 7 matches was a really good method and I wish we had it back.

Felt there was a slight possibility of an upset too Daniel, but the Pies are just that good.

The first quarter promised at least that Melbourne would stay in the hunt.

The remaining three quarters? Sigh. Now I'm doubly embarrassed that the Bombers lost to them.
