A big gamble and price to pay no doubt, but if Geelong had taken out the premiership this year or do it next year nobody would have cared.You gave us three first rounders for a 28 year old. You’ll only have yourselves to blame.
Best you've played this year?A very clinical demons performance. We were absolutely switched on from the outset. The midfield stood up and the defensive unit was almost impossible to penetrate. Loved the pressure We put on to. And Max Gawn. There was a lot talk about the battle with Stanley. Gawn wiped the floor with him.
Sure Geelong could go again. But they need a refresh and to play some young players.
I guess this also means Tom Stewart doesn’t blow his foot up trying to play in a grand final.
No current season stats available
LOL I’m surprised you even watched us, that must have hurt. Very brave of you.What would you like him to say? Yeah we were wrapt when Duncan went down for 8 weeks then lost Cameron and Touhy in the last month or so. Then when our most important player got injured a week out from finals we were super excited it gave Zac Guthrie a chance. Losing our run with player in O’Connor didn’t disrupt us either did losing a starting mid last week.
that would be a bizarro thing to say, by some miracle once again Geelong had all their important players bar Stewart available, and especially all their older experienced leaders all on the field, AND Melbourne lost one of their most important players to injury in the first five minutes.What would you like him to say?

Lever is next captain material. Loses his voice every game.Favourite bits of last night's game:
- Lever telling Rivers that "we need you going for the ball" or words to that effect after he had given away a totally unnecessary free kick to Miers and was having a whinge to the umpire about it. Great leadership
- Oliver gently pointing out the scoreboard to Atkins after Atkins was trying to give him a gob full after a contest with the ball resulting in going out of bounds. Atkins wouldn't have got a kick out of an electric chair last night, and what's the point of "sledging" when you are more than 10 goals behind? Bit like giving a send off to a batsman that has just made a double century, and you dropped him on 10.
There simply wasn't the time you see..Chris Scott had to catch a bus.Still no press conference up?
What are they hiding from?
Youre a bit late to that party, but yes and no as my comment was aimed at the players on the field so apart from Cats fans, the fans of 17 other clubs, including Dee's supporters, thank the Melbourne playing group.16 other clubs ;-)
We've got to get over your lot first, but the Dogs beat the Dees last we played them. But since then we've lost our FF and FB. I don't see how we can be favourites for either tonight's game or next week.I dont think anyone can absorb their pressure and ive still got skin in the game, i want my mob there but we better turn up.
What’s the term they use is it Injury troll??LOL I’m surprised you even watched us, that must have hurt. Very brave of you.
Anyway how good was Petracca? And Brayshaw? Lever and Neal-Bullen too.
2014 draft, what a cracker that was.
And you plucked McCartin, Hugh Goddard and some other packets of sh*t.
Poor old Isaac (well, not really,given he had success at Hawthorn):Well done for fronting up all night mate - that would have been hard. Not only to lose, but the manner of the loss and probably the realisation that the approach is probably going to have to change.
P.S. Also thought Isaac Smith did ok. 33 year old outside player who ran hard and got 23 and 1.
