Torn about how I feel regarding the result. Melbourne lose and the flag is up for grabs again, but Freo remain ahead of us.
The odds of StK and Freo being within 4 pts and/or percentage at end of season are very, very low. We are both capable and vulnerable, mirroring each other from here is highly unlikely. Melbourne losing is a MASSIVELY important result. Now they are vulnerable too. And you see their response when they were opened up? Momentum (and good injury run) was driving that team, confidence of average players was sky high every week. Enough younger, inexperienced players for fear to creep in. Let's see how they respond in the next month.

Hopefully Freo get ahead of themselves again after this win and Brisbane and the Hawks knock them off at home in the next couple of weeks.

Cut them right back down to size.

George is it possible to make a state of the forum thread? Cluttering up multiple threads over the whole board.
Don't offer suggestions, pissant. You speak when you're spoken to. I rule with an iron fist, just ask Dard Ball Get , he has felt the sheer power of said fist many a Saturday night.

Now back to complaining about the umpires and hanging s**t on Barney! At once!

Petracca went missing. 10 possessions, no goals and 40 AF points. Would nearly be his worst ever game. Even missed a sitter. In all seriousness though Langdon is almost their most important player these days. The Hawks blanketed him and the Dees looked vulnerable. May didn't make much difference IMO, it's Freo's smalls that get you.

Last year Dogs and Dees looked like the 2 best sides at about this point and both made it through to the gf. I reckon there are about 4 sides vying for second best this season and we are one of them.
Weve been lucky so far we could have easily been smashed the last 2 games if it wasnt for the oppositions poor kicking. Some results went our way. On the flipside sometime a great quarter of footy is all it takes. Every team is striving for that 4 quarter performance. Its gonna definitely test our emotions this year.

Seems all the Melbourne players were down apart from Dunstan who maintained his mediocre input.

They were playing well until Dunstan got subbed on, his lack of pace and skill seemed to infect the rest of the Melbourne players.

He's a sleeper agent and a momentum killer, let's hope he gets subbed on for them if we play them in finals.
