Seriously, where did good Adelaide go and what the hell is this team posing as them. I'm so confused.

I went out tonight because as if Essendon weren't going to get smashed by Geelong. Even after that good start I knew we would fade. Can't believe that even with some struggles in the fourth quarter we held on to win. Essendon seem to win when I'm at gigs...

This season keeps throwing up some outrageous curveballs.

North and Sydney play today, two teams that seemed down and out a few weeks back, but the winner mighty still be a top 4 fancy. So crazy has this season been so far.

Big, big win to Richmond today could see us take top spot. Could happen, but we could well be soundly beaten as well.

Stadium in Shanghai looks beautiful.

I think the most telling thing about the Adelaide Football Club is how we have a 28yo 150+ game plodder who offers absolutely nothing to the side, plays at best 2-3 passable games a year yet still gets consistently selected because he 'trains well' and provides a mythical 'run and carry' game. It's baffling, do any other clubs have players like this in their 22?

Who's that?

I am furious to be a Geelong supporter at the moment. We're playing like entitled cunts and refusing to show up until the final quarter when we slam on 10 goals. It's infuriating.

This season has been fucked up.

Tigers went ahead by four points with a minute to go... then Mundy kicked a goal after the siren.

The epitome of the anonymous but also completely useless player who is a net negative to the side.

I seriously cannot believe this. The Tigers' goal was with just 21 seconds left in the clock! I cannot recall a team getting back in front with that little time left and then losing the game. Talk about snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

And my god that Gold Coast vs Port game looks like it must've been a shocking ad for the sport.

The ladder's completely fucked. One win separating first and ninth and every team has played both extremely good and terribly bad football.

Richmond are the new North, oh my god. Every season they find new ways to punish their fans.

Operation Get Bucks Sacked is going nicely.

Ugh, they came back to tie it. Not sure how Hawthorn could be spotted an entire quarter of footy and not even hold on to the lead for another 40 minutes.

Can't make this stuff up

Played really well for three quarters. Conceded some silly goals in the final term, but weren't terrible. Goal disallowed, bang, goal to them at the other end. Game over.

Very Richmond.
