Not too surprising, but still a bit sad to see it happen.

Mark Robinson wrote today that it's hard to tell whether he was a good or great player, such was the failure of his time at Sydney apparently.

Good!

And it's always a beautiful day when Scum lose unexpectedly and are out of the premiership race. Good Old Collingwood for Never!


Geelong vs Hawthorn - keep the dream alive - piss off Saints and Dogs.

A Geelong v Hawthorn grand final...

I sometimes wish U2 could drop in at the AFL grand final one day and play in the pre-match entertainment.

I wonder how Didak and Shaw are feeling about themselves right now. Actually, it's mad monday, so they're probably driving around

We wouldn't have won if they had played on saturday night. Saint Nick was fucking brilliant. He took about 20,000 Marks and was able to kick straight.

Everytime Collingwood went into attack St.Kilda had the doubleteam Travis Cloke or whoever was going up for a mark. Ross Lyon totally out coached Mick on saturday, So much so I left at 3 quarter time.

Would have like to have seen Robert Harvey's "send off" though. I'll be barraking for the Saints next week, just for Number 35's sake.

So predictably Geelong have made the grand final with that 29pt win over WBulldogs, now its St Kilda v Hawthorn, Hawks should win but Stk beat them last time.

I badly want a Geelong v Hawthorn GF because it will probably be close but if it was St Kilda v Geelong it would be boring cos Geelong will smash them.

So, Cats and Hawks GF.

Is it just me, or has there been absolutely nothing interesting about this final series? At least in comparison to some of the more recent previous ones. No particularly close games, no upsets.

Good, anything other than a Geelong v Hawthorn GF would be a disgrace. The game will be a cracker, finally an AFL match to get excited about this season.

I seriously think the finals series is overly long-winded with so many pointless games. They should revert back to a top 5.

I do agree with you actually. The Dogs/Cats game was ok, but other than that it's been an average series. Being hailed as an 89 rematch.

Andrew Demented wants a top nine or ten, and he wants the grand final at night. O how I hate him so.

I agree - should be a good game! I'm considering putting a few dollars on Hawthorn to win, Geelong have got to lose a game eventually don't they?

Brownlow night tonight. I'm assuming Gary Ablett Jnr is a shoe-in after missing out last year!

Well, to win he has to deny about 70 years of history. The legendary Hadyn Bunton - my late grandfather says he was the best player he'd ever seen - was the last man to win a Brownlow medal after missing four or more games throughout the year, polling 23 votes in 14 games.

Ablett missed four games through injury, and won't poll in the game in which he was injured, so effectively he needs to poll 23+ votes from 17 games, in a side where he'll lose votes to Selwood, Corey, Bartel... though I'm still confident he can win, because he had a number of standout games.

Yeah, that's the problem with being in a side with so many stand-out players I guess!! I'd forgotten that Ablett was out for a few games tho, so maybe...
Centrebet has got Ablett at $2.35 and Bartel at $3.65 at the moment.

Brent Harvey'll win, there's too many Geelong players to snare votes off each other. Shame really, Harvey isn't all that clever, just a prolific possession getter who can fluke a goal here and there playing in a team of no-names.. Hardly one of the gun midfielder's in the league.

I'd prefer a finals series where all the teams are quite close, it gets boring seeing Geelong walk thru teams, still a predictable outcome and boring to watch unless the game is close and entertaining (enter Geel v Haw earlier this year) or you are a Geelong fan.

I enjoyed the 05 and 06 finals series because there were no clear favourites, the two GFs between WCE and Sydney entertained me a lot because of the intensity and the "one slip up and you'll lose the game" feeling. I didn't mind last years GF because Geelong pummelled the enemy Pt Adelaide.
