Holy crap, what a finish for the Cats. That 60m goal lit a fire under them.

I think it's broadcaster preference.

At the ground itself, the clocks that the crowd and players see count up and don't include stoppages, so the clock will run to 27-33 minutes per quarter. The coaches' boxes and broadcasters, however, get the timekeeper's countdown clock that starts from 20 minutes and includes stoppages, so they know when the siren's going to sound. At the end of close games you'll see the coach sending runners out to tell players how long to go. It's up to the broadcaster which clock to take. Channel 7, who have the free-to-air games, show the countdown clock, but since I don't have pay TV (which this game is on), I don't know what clock they use.

Yeah ouch, though nine points is nothing. If you guys could do 52 points in the corresponding fixture last year, you can do this.

I had to watch that comeback again. God, this was so fucking exciting:



Poor Huddo though. You wouldn't know from his ecstatic commentary of McGrath's goal that he's actually an avid Cats fan.

Huddo is terrific at hiding his bias, remember that Swans/Cats 2005 SF? His call of Nick Davis was memorable, and you wouldn't have guessed that he was secretly despairing inside because he's a Cats fan. Definitely one of the best commentators going around, opposite to Dwayne Russell.

They just showed the goal in a replay and are interviewing McGrath about it right now...and his...calf injury .

He's an example for many other commentators in this country - especially the cricket and rugby commentators, who are far more overtly biased than even the worst footy offenders. That 2005 call by Huddo is amazing. He must've been absolutely shattered.

I wish he was still on free-to-air. Between his impartiality and his obvious geniune enthusiasm for the game, he's one of the best we've got.

Let's all enjoy "I see it but I don't believe it!" one more time:

I used to really enjoy hearing Michael Christian get fired up big time, too.

My God, I love Daniel Rich. He just had someone jump on his back and he carried him around for a few feet, spinning him in circles.

Bitch. Well, you can only have the ball on one side so long without someone finally scoring a goal, I suppose.

I'm not used to games like this. Sloppy, aggressive, lots of throw ins. I don't know much about Aussie weather, but these games aren't common at the MCG.

Someone has got to turn that ump's mic off. He sounds like he's getting a fucking blowjob or something.
