Reaching 200+ should have been their goal, like we did against Richmond a few years ago. Disappointing.

Riemers has six, maybe he doesn't need the yellow boots after all.

Well in the end they might as well have struck the 200 mark, 197-58! Good lord, Gold Coast.

Excellent. Much as hate Essendon cos of their rabid fans this seaon, I was hoping they'd comfortably belt the Suns.

Hopefully Collingwood scores 37.16.238 against them.

Apparently Crameri had a shot after the siren to put them over 200 but missed.

It's funny, I used to know a fair few Essendon fans up on the Gold Coast - now that I'm an Essendon fan, I barely know anybody else who is! Still the only fans that really bug me are Collingwood ones. I must say our resident Pies fans are wonderful people who don't deserve to be lumped in with that bunch, but christ I've encountered some unpleasant Pies fans out there away from Interference.

Apparently Folau had to bury his best mate just days before playing on the G yesterday (against the Bullants, they lost by 89, were goalless to half-time but won the third), but that doesn't change the fact he was terrible and damn I wish he hadn't changed codes.

I had to interview a 16yo kid yesterday, after he tore it up for Bannockburn's seniors. It was a bit like trying to get blood out of a stone... "Yep." "Good." "Yeah alright". "Good experience." "Enjoyed it."

Port and GC board members will be relieved. Osama's death takes the heat off them for a moment.

Can't believe the pressure Bailey is under. Fair go, his squad is still very raw... It takes time to get some consistency, typical fickle Melbourne fans. He was entrusted to build the squad from scratch, that process should not be interrupted.

It really takes the edge off of our victory. Much of the reason Melbourne played badly because of our pressure, not solely because of their regular skills.

Folks still ain't ready to admit how much West Coast have improved.

IMO WC were as good as Melbourne were bad. Improved out of sight on last year

Ha, now that I've staked a claim in them? They'll be lucky to pick up a handful. I am not exactly a good luck charm in sports (even if my American football teams kicked ass lass season).

The vote has been passed for Adelaide Oval redevelopment.

Not sure what to think about it, since the capacity of this reveloped Adelaide Oval will only be around 50,000, where AAMI Stadium has a larger capacity.

I'm also quite fond of AAMI, anyway.

Waverley Park had a capacity of 80,000 but that didn't help it at all. It's not like AAMI is ever even remotely close to full, anyway. There's nothing special about it and never really was - it'll be sad to see it go since it's been the site of some pretty special events to me over the years (U2 and International Rules as well as regular matches) but ultimately, this is what Adelaide needs.

It's perfect for the city as it is now, cheaper than starting from scratch to build a new stadium, just making an already special location more suited to the 21st century. One of the best things about Melbourne is the restaurant/footy/pub go in the CBD, and there's no reason why Adelaide shouldn't have the same. I can't say whether or not this will be the resounding success that the media wants it to be, and it sure as hell won't solve all our problems here, but it's a hell of a lot better than keeping this city stagnant while the other capitals boom ahead of Adelaide.

Sad thing is, by the time 2014 comes around I'd have finished my studies and might even be on the verge of going interstate or overseas for further endeavours. Let's see how things go.

We managed 50,000 for the elim. final against Essendon in 2009, but yes, even 45,000 is a very unlikely occurance these days. I just had a look at the "plans" they had for AAMI's undevelopment, it made me depressed.

Would be happier if AO's new capacity was something more like 55,000-60,000, but oh well.

Actually, I think it is 55,000. Maybe more for a tight squeeze on the hill.
