Can't see a Toby-less Giants side getting up here. He is their talisman. It will be interesting to see which way the neutral crowd goes here. My perception is that Geelong is neither much liked or hated in Perth, but maybe Eagles fans will want payback for some of those recent hidings they've got at Kardinya Park. On the other hand that might make the Cats firm favourites with Docker fans.

Completely incorrect. Geelong are hated by most Fremantle fans which probably stemmed from our dislike of their coach Scott, Chapman & Scarlett. I'm hoping for a GWS upset.

I'm sad to hear that. Teams, coaches and players annoy fans all the time. Hell, I remember when Solomon cracked Ling's cheekbone. I actually like Freo and was cheering for you against the Hawks.

Toby-less Giants vs Tom-less Cats.
Given the result of the previous game you would expect the Cats to make some changes. Tuohy for injured O'Connor. Ratugolea, Zuthrie?

i reckon green will get a huge fine and able to play v cats i just have a feeling that the umpire could have moved out of the way and that green could not as he had a player on his other side and he just brushed past the ump.

I'd love to see GWS win but without Greene it's hard to see it happening, they've won games without him though so I wouldn't rule it out completely.

Can't wait to hear Chris Scott have a nice big fat sook after too.
Loves a whinge does Chris, loves it. Can't help himself. Just has to have a big fat sook.

This is not me arcing up. This isn’t a hostile question it’s just something I often wonder.

Why is it that every coach after loss delivers a mixture of blame-acceptance (either personally or from a team perspective), some mitigating factors that may or may not be real, and a damage control speech designed to try and take a bit of pressure of his team, but when Scott does it, it’s a whinge? What did he say in Friday night’s post game that was a whinge?

I take a fairly close interest in all post match pressers and I don’t see a single thing he does different, win or lose, to any other coach. He’s generally measured, leans heavily on the ‘it’s never as bad as things are painted after a loss and it’s never as good as things are painted after a win’ mantra

I have calmed down after last week's debacle, surely Geelong cannot play that badly anymore this season? Port are not that good ( i think they'll lose their home Preliminary if they play the Dogs) Greene is worth 3 goals to the Giants and he won't be there to spook the Cats as he did a few weeks ago.
Geelong can win this by a lot and gear themselves up to shock Melbourne the following week. Cats by 46points.

That was Dunstall’s take last night on 360.
Guthrie - good player, played terrible
Cameron - stay, played terrible
Henderson - reliable player, played terrible
Dangerfield - superstar, played terrible
Etc etc
His view was basically that the odds of it happening twice in a row are minimal.


Tuohy back takes care to some degree of the composure element of Stewart’s absence. Tuohy brings a lot of calm to the back 50 and his kicking is a weapon.

I think Guthrie (Zac) needs to play because he can at least offer some interception which in turn frees Henry up to play more one on one against a key forward. Henry is a magnificent defender and our next best intercepter behind Stewart but he can’t play both roles.
