    Honestly dunno, was more a collective comment and I took it as directed squarely at those that haven't played AFL.

    Notice on the website and app there is now an article called " VFL so far" , a quick summary of all the games so far and . . . . . . they have actually listed the best players properly! Well done!

    1) Bathed and in to the onesie by 7:00
    2) Jaffles at half time.
    3) Perhaps a nip of sweet sherry before turning in at ...........ohhhhh...........at least 10 o'clock.

    With the amount of injuries out at Whitten oval, VFL squad is not gunna be too strong, surely, big chance for our boys to get some form back.

    That's really bad for Michael Close. Glad the advice has valued his health over immediate career definitely wouldn't want to take any risks in that situation.

    Smart work by Close, everyone knows you go home shower and get in your civvies before presenting at hospital in Horsham and say you've hurt yourself falling off your air seeder.

    Rock up at Emergency in your footy gear and the triage nurse puts your name at the bottom of the list and behind every subsequent arrival of a 2 year old with the sniffles.

    Conversely if you front up in a Geelong top do you get a complimentary hyperbaric session, NASA grade medical and sent home with a $50k government grant?

    3 1/2 mate, absolutely loves it, but is far from being able to sit still and watch any footy. Was asked in the shop at Arden St. last weekend who his favourite footballer was by the lovely girl behind the counter, I suggested his big mate Majak and he got himself a big massive smile before yelling out "Higgo". Mind you, he did want to know where Sammy Wright was and if Stevo was there too. Funny kid.

    Ryan Clarke must be thinking "this isn't where I thought I'd be 4 weeks ago when I was 'woo'inng' away without a care in the world".

    Clarke will most likely have another close to 40 disposal game tomorrow, enough to get a promotion? probably not, enough to even be named in the best players? probably not.

    Fortunately we lost against Geelong so the gap wasn't exposed.

    But should we beat the dogs, the tempo could really go awry if someone doesn't step up and provide the bridge.
