I think tigers have a chance against Geelong if they play with the spirit like they did against Brisbane.

Nah, the Tigers are going to get caned.

Then again, I did predict that the Lions would destroy them too ...

Not to be a fairweather fan, but it's damn hard to initially get into a team when you have no attachment to any in the tournament and the one you arbitrarily chose because their colours are the same as your rugby team (Wellington's yellow and black) is pretty crap and doing nothing to motivate you to care. But that fourth quarter was pretty damn exciting.

Kind of a shame it had to be over Brisbane Fitzroy, ostensibly my second team, but I'll take anything that can get me more into properly following the season rather than just paying attention whenever the mood catches me or when Melbourne catches finals fever.
I becoming more and more just a general supporter. I'll always follow the pussies, but I am losing that passion. Tigers are playing some mighty good football at the moment, as are the Dons.

But as someone said to me, I think you can just close up shop and give the flag to us, because we beat the Hawks without Ablett, Milburn and Wojcinski, and only had Chapman for a half.

It all leads to the question. Who can and who will beat Geelong somehow?
Collingwood still can beat them but they are going downhill atm.

We'll find out tonight. Its time, If Collingwood are gonna make the 8, lets forget about the top 4 for the moment, If they wanna have any action in September, they have to improve tonight.

I'm not saying they're gonna win tonight, but I'd rather be playing Collingwood after we've won 3-4 in a row, rather than a magpies outfit thats lost 2 in a row. The same can be said about Hawthorn....so If both sides bring their best out tonight, we could be in for a great game!

Oh, and for fucks sake, I wish the media would leave Sam Newman alone....he might not have a job by the end of today, apparently. I for one will never watch the footy show again if he is sacked.

This would be a good thing. Sam Newman is a total fucktard (god I love that word) who well knows what he's doing and gets off on the controversy. And I don't even follow AFL

*awaits response that us women have no sense of humour*

I told a girl in my italian class today, that if we don't win the premiership I'll give her $20 dollars.

amen brother. I couldn't BELIEVE all this crap on the news. The media are incredibly oversensitive now, scutinising everything Sam Newman says. Give the guy a break. He's said/done way worse things in the past. He defended himself rigoursly. with you all the way

I disagree, but (boy you do love that word ) I think this stuff all comes back to what your predisposition is regarding Sam. If you don't like him, you never will, and just switch off. But I agree with Daniel.

Danny, I don't suppose you want to also give me $20 if Geelong don't win?

Well, if there's 20 dollar notes just being flung around....

As regards John Fucktard Newton, I just think his time has passed. He does appeal to the lowest common denominator in many respects, and it doesn't say much about commercial TV's respect of the intelligence of their viewer (yes I know I'm expecting too much from commercial tv ). When you compare the quality of presenters like Les Murray or Bruce McAvaney with Fucktard, well...

I'm not the biggest fan of Sam Newman, in fact i'm kinda neutral with him, but the media gotta give him a bloody break, they should just relax! He just makes jokes not meaning to offend anyone!

The media seem too sensitive!

Man, after a great first ten minutes by the Tigers, they're now getting killed by the Cats at half time.

It was pretty obvious that it was going to occur in the end.

Oh well, I'm quite happy because my Crows beat the Blues in a thriller.

Ha, yeah. When Richmond scored their second goal, my first thought was "this can't last long!"

I did hope it would last a little longer than it did, though!

And as long as the Blues have been beaten, a good outcome has been achieved if you ask me.
