Looks like it was a nailbiter of a finish. We've got Dees vs Dogs on telly here instead and that's going about as expected so far.

And I'm hardly shocked Carlton are starting to come together given Bolton's now the coach. It seems he actually knows what he's doing unlike Mick.

Wouldn't want to be St Kilda right now.

There are some truly terrible teams in the competition this year that really shouldn't be. Gold Coast, Fremantle and Richmond (in spite of the glorious win on Saturday night).

I like to think that StK are much better than they were on Sunday. Just a blip, which will happen from time to time. Otherwise, they have been developing quite nicely)

Yeah just an aberration for the Saints I reckon. Happens regularly. We've seen it with Essendon; four points in a half then comfortably won the second half.

That Richmond-Sydney game was fantastic. Amazing ending.

I tipped Carlton, and am now first in work tipping

Some have been quite successful, Grigg, Miles and Houli.

I think the problem at Richmond lies with our game plan. We have a terrific spine of players there. Highly dependable role-players (Deledio, Edwards, Maric, Vlaustin) and some genuine superstars (Rance, Martin). But when we get the ball, we have no sense of purpose. It's a random cavalcade of trying to work the ball forward, but no one knows where they fit in to the game plan so it just gets eventually turned over somewhere between the 50-metre lines.

I personally think Hardwick's time is up. He's proven himself as a ground-up list builder, but not a match-day tactician or appears capable of instilling composure into the team when it counts.

Our list is pushing on, I'd be curious to see if Ross Lyon could work some magic into this side within a maximum three-year contract. We've finished 5th twice in the past few seasons and we've normally beaten the elite Hawthorn, Fremantle and Sydney sides of the past few years. I just want to see us make a grand final.

I think your issue is a severe lack of depth. When good players are out, the players coming in can't cut it. When good players aren't playing well, there's not enough support from surrounding players.

Have you had a vision of an embarrassing loss to the Gold Coast on Saturday, or...?

Brought in a former captain who is barely SANFL standard these days for literally no reason - just so everyone can see him show off how big his turning circle is and turnover the ball under the slightest bit of pressure.

Adelaide have not won a game of footy since 1998.

I can't believe he went to St. Kilda just to play golf.

Are you suggesting that northern scum beating a Victorian team is acceptable?

What is with Collingwood not being garbage right now. I'm most confused.
