Run though May towards the wing where he then emulates Ali Lynch and haymakers Langdon into concussion oblivion is the key. 2 concussions in first first minute for the Dees is a good time for us.
Like the Geelong Richmond game where Ablett and I think vlaustin took themselves out in like successive minutes

Didn't see the game, what happened to Melbourne? Petracca 10 disposals wtf?

Apparently Petracca was sick and probably shouldn't have played, didn't look his usual self and barely had any impact.

Along with May and Langdon missing Melbourne didn't look as formidable as they usually do, as good as they are they are still vulnerable if they lose key players like most teams are.

Unfortunately when we played them they were virtually at full strength and at the top of their game, even then we still challenged them in the 2nd half.

Bobby Hill diagnosed with testicular cancer.

How many is that now? Should alarm bells be ringing with the number that seem to be afflicted by this in the AFL?

Very clearly a result of the game going soft on "dangerous" tackles and "The Bump"

Footballers used to require balls of iron to put their lives on the line for this game. Now the private school boys club have taken over and we are cultivating draft after draft of wussies.

:p

Seriously though, all the best to him. Doc at the Blues has shown you can come back even better and Bobby's got plenty of time ahead of him.

I do wonder if the Giants are more open to trading him now if he asks to be in Melbourne for his rehab.

Lol if the pies get up they’ll have beaten 3 of the top 5 teams. Their form is confusing.

Perhaps unlucky we got them in round 1 but they have taken it up to all the good sides this year.

Massive for us if they get up today.
Absolutely ridiculous if they have scalps of Saints, Freo, Carlton.

Gotta hope they don't get nervous and choke this now.

Carlton will be sweating bullets if Weitering is out for 6-8 weeks here.
