Not making excuses, but one thing I've noticed watching is that the commentators appear to be absolutely disgusted by the ref'ing in this game. Well for the most part anyways. As I was typing this, they were commending someone for being "Red hot"

So many different sports, so much terminology.

Ah! Leave it to Aussie Rules to use the most literal, easy to remember terminology yet not make the slightest bit of sense.

Yeah, too true.

Defenders, midfielders, forwards, umpires etc.

Travis, I think, was going for basketball terminology in this case: Point Guard, Forward, Center

I was listening to the radio but they brought it up, haha. I think it was Bartel. Apparently he still managed to make a clean disposal.

Is Brown okay? Seriously, I was getting kind of worried when they were saying he hadn't moved for a couple of minutes. That's terrible.

I was pretty sure that Brisbane actually got the ball after that too, but I could be wrong.

He was knocked unconscious, that I know for sure, but they said it doesn't *look* like there was any facial damage, which, given earlier this year, is nice to hear, but of course, being knocked unconscious is not a good thing by any stretch of the imagination.

It wasn't all that long ago that the term defenders was seldom used. They were backmen, and more often referred to by a specific position (Half Back Flanker, Back Pocket, Full Back).

The Richmond loss doesn't surprise me. We've got issues, we know that, but we need to wait until the end of the season to resolve them. Martin's been found out by opposition teams, and his individual brilliance is being nullified. He is subjected to gang tackling, because they know that one man alone can't stop Martin.

Port aren't going anywhere, they'll be around for years and years, especially after the TV deal. They just need to be micro-managed, act boutique, before they can prosper properly again.

Some bloke put $5 on Cloke, Pods and Jack Riewoldt to kick first goal, and the Swans/Freo game to be drawn at the end of any quarter. Paid $4536. He won $22,689.

Didn't know this until now!

Finally he can focus on boxing! Staker wants a rematch!

Guess it was bound to happen. He kicked his 100th Dogs goal on the weekend if I'm not mistaken, making him the only player to ever kick 100+ goals each for three different clubs. edit: Oh, that's in the article. lolo

I've always liked ol' B.B.B.B.B.B.B.B. I think his hit on Staker was the highlight of our downtime.

Did I forget Bootylicious?

Sainters v Crows
North v Brisbin
Sydney v Dogs
Gold Coast Jr v Coll'wood
Essendon v Carlton
Geelong v Richmond
Melbs v Hawks
Freo v WCE
Bye v Port

Some potentially great games here: Derby, Ess/Carlton and Swans/Dogs.
