I'm not all that fussed about the bloods losing to the Eagles. In fact, I don't think I cared if we lost. All I wanted to see was the ridiculosly even rivalry between South and West Coast continue at it's nailbiting best, and it did....and I'm delighted.

Aside from that game, that round of footy was positively awful. Robertson's goal against the Saints was the only real highlight, and most of the winners won in either dull (Essendon, St Kilda, Brisbane) or ludicrously controversial (North Melbourne) fashion.

I cannot believe how close the past five or six games between the Swans and the Eagles have been... amazing! It's been about 12 points all up.

Good to see the Blues get up. Of course, they were miles behind in the third quarter, and so was the Wobbles, and they both win.

But not Geelong.

Oh no.

Please not again.

Stuck on dial up due to a change in house...and I"ve not been able to put in my tips.

Actually I don't really seem to care for Footy this year, 7 is doing a crappy job, at least 9 showed as a game live on Sunday arvo, that was good.

Nine pumped up Friday night football like you didn't want to miss it, Annnd apparently they have a director from overseas, WTF!

That was what made me cringe at 9's coverage. Pumping up dreary and irrelevant matches between two average on-field teams (usually Collingwood) is not what league football is all about. Just get on with the game. Friday Night Footy is just one match in a 176 game season. The only good thing about 9's coverage was Dermie.

I missed Bruce, glad he's back. But Dave Schwarz and Olerenshaw are shite. Bring back Sandy and Drew.

Footy will never be the same as exciting and as pure as it was pre-2000, let the AFL rot...

Fremantle

We are a divided household and at this point I have one very happy mini West Coast Eagles fan, one reasonably happy mini Swans fan and two tragically unhappy Dockers fans. :cry:

I can't believe Selwood got off! I can understand Headland getting off, but how Selwood did I don't know.

It's an interesting call.

In defence of Selwood, how was he to know that the tattoo was of Headland's daughter. Maybe he did have sex with a sheila who looked similar to the one on Headland's shoulder? If so, Selwood's "sledge" was merely an act of honesty. Who knows, but I don't reckon there was any paedophlic intent there...

That said, Headland's aggressive reaction was understandable given the circumstances.

It almost seems too harsh to punish both players for the incident, while at the same too lenient to let them both escape scot free...

All still a bit disturbing nonetheless...

Wow. The Pies certainly ran out of gas in that last quarter yesterday.

From what I hear Port are really doing "unexpectedly well" ...which at this stage of the season, I'm not sure if most clubs should be expected to be in any certain form.

Nine goals eighteen.

In a four point game!
