What’s Sidebottom paying for the Brownlow? Looks like he’s playing his best ever football.

If he’s greater than 15:1 odds I reckon he’d be a good get; pies will win heaps of games and he’s a goal kicking mid.

Issue is he has too many good teammates to steal votes off him.

Watching this game makes me feel a little better about where we are at. Collingwood are clearly in the best 3 - 4 sides in the comp and imo there's a fair way to 5 - 8; but some of their skills have been fairly comical, especially shots at goal on the run under little pressure. Treloar is quite the turnover merchant at times as well.

The poor old umpires having a winge about supporter abuse.
Just watch the pitiful decision against Jeremy Howe's Mark in the 1st qtr and you will know why abuse is a weekly occurence.
Disgraceful Decision
No - the abuse comes from people who simply don't know the rules.

Howe lead with his studs - free kick - simple.

Then after playing 4 games in 4 years we'd delist him because he didn't come back like an ironman in the off season.
And then we would blame the coach and never the player. And that same player never gets picked up by another club suggesting our hope that he was good was wrong again

I thought the saints had the bye this week - turned on the TV and have been watching them play the Pies.

Someone please explain that last free kick to Gawn for me. I had the sound off - it seriously wasn't holding the ball was it?

Sadly true.
I hate this about our player management.

Talent is talent.
Work with people's strengths Saints.
aren't we counting Gresh and Billings and Dunstan. Even Clark played 15 last year. Paddy basically was picked everytime he was a available. Constable Myers didnt play a game at Geelong last year.

Agree.
Scrappy crap and painful to watch.
Tempted to scratch my own eyes out every week.
So much emphasis on fitness & structures that the players have become robotic athletes instead of natural footballers.

The Swans ruined footy in the mid noughties & as much as we all hate the Cats they were the games saviour.

Not many teams play an exciting brand of footy. I think I’m gonna jump on the Giants bandwagon come finals time.
