Nothing from Vlad after that absolute rout of Richmond? Not even a slight peep of satisfaction?

Just going by the score progression, it looks like Richmond were contenders for most of the first half, and then Adelaide decided to show them what it means to be the real deal.

Personally, I'm disappointed Essendon didn't do tremendously well against Melbourne after our Anzac Day showing. We can't even use the short turnaround as an excuse given the team we vanquished managed to knock off the Cats!

Vlad might crack a smile if they win the grand final.

I was/am pretty stoked. Just this thread doesn't seem as active as it once was.

Richmond played an almost flawless first quarter, as soon as the second started we blitzed them and they never looked like scoring afterwards (only 4 goals since quarter time).

Reckon Rory Sloane's a big chance for the Brownlow this year. Would have polled well in 5 out of his 6 games so far.

I might even provide a thumbs up.

Wait is this North vs Adelaide result a hoax? Fake news?

Vlad, wherever you are, I hope you are OK.

What the actual fuck even is this weekend. The entire top five lost!

And Rohan Connelly is tearing it up on Twitter against the alt-right scum.

Loved what he did on Friday night

This has been one fucked up round of football though.

And a very weird season. I can never remember a season where every team was so flawed and susceptible to a heavy loss every week. Just when we thought maybe Adelaide was the only standout they concede 10 goals in the first quarter and end up getting pumped.

Apparently this round is the first time since 1975 that every lower-ranked team has beaten a higher-ranked one, and that was in a 12-team competition. Wow.

For volatility I wish I had seen the 1993 season. Just look at that painfully close ladder! Even better, it ends with Essendon winning the flag.

I wasn't able to watch our game this weekend, and in hindsight I'm extremely glad I didn't. Didn't need my otherwise good week affected by a shit Crows performance.

Reckon we started drinking our own bathwater too early!

EDIT: good to know Port lost though, they simply cannot beat a top 8 team for all the positive attention they're getting.

I actually thought he was already dead.

But a great shame and may he rest in peace.

Feels like he's been out of the public spotlight for about a decade now.

I am completely and utterly embarrassed to be an Adelaide supporter.

Imagine drinking your own bathwater so much that you get done by fucking North by 10 goals and then smashed by Melbourne at home. Fuck, I am so embarrassed.
