Poor, poor Richmond.

They played pretty well after quarter time, actually. And you can't blame them for Collingwood's reigning superiority over everyone.

Well that's kind of what I meant. Even though they clearly tried to hold their own, they were just being thrown in the fire here and there wasn't much they could do about.

Looking forward to somebody finally beating the Pies.

I just thought it sounded like you had another dig at the Tigers.

They were very poor! Apart from their third quarter they were very ordinary.

This Carlton/Essendon game is madness. The definition of epic.

IT'S ANOTHER DRAW.

What a game. Surely this is a classic? So many lead changes and Dustin Fletcher should never retire, he's almost 36 and he brings down the fastest player on the ground as well as saving Essendon's ass many times?

I'm amazed, what a game.

Oh no, that was the "poor, poor Richmond" of pity.

Wow, that was awesome. Epic final quarter, everything that footy's all about. Love the Carlton fuck-up at the end that allowed us to sneak the score-levelling behind. Looks like we copped a couple of injuries though ...

You got two, and you played without them for the majority of the game. Outstanding that Essendon still crept in for a draw, as the signs were pointing to the Blues winning.

Unbelievable. Shame I missed it!

Here's to the draw - and keeping it!

Bit pissed the Showdown's not on telly here. They're broadcasting Sydney vs Geelong instead.

Which, of course, will be a cracking match as well.

Really? Why? Surely Sydney/Geelong holds greater interest for anyone who's not a Crows/BogansPort fan.

In all fairness, no matter where either team is on the ladder, the Showdown is still brutal and exciting to watch so I can easily understand. Same goes for the Derby.

I don't live in SA or WA, so I really can't comment, but it would appear to me to be overstated. I don't think true rivalries exist anymore. "Showdown" and "derby" are just fancy words to get more people through the gates. Even Carlton/Collingwood is not that much different to any other blockbuster, at least compared to 10, 15, 20, 30, 50 years ago. "Rivalry round" is a joke. The only fever-pitch rivalry I can think of is Collingwood/Essendon on ANZAC Day. Otherwise it's dictated by ladder position, like when Geelong played St Kilda in round 13 in 09 or 10 and neither side had lost yet.

But I don't live in SA or WA so maybe it's alive and well over there.
