Moore and Pendlebury both played.
Well heck 3 of our best 5, happy? Grundy, De Goey and Adams. 3 of our 4 best players

Would no longer have Pendles in that bracket. But anyway, keep going, we will see how the ladder pans out after Rd 23 😉

The only person who would harp on about this Ginnivan s**t for so long is a troll, and in this case, it's a known troll.

It was clearly a free kick. I don't like that he still tried to draw the high contact, but really he didn't need to - Paddy clearly got him high before he raised the shoulder.

Just ignore him, Pies fans.

Never in the game.

Two players out that may return for finals hardly a injury list to worry about.
We're always in the game as you found out last week young debutant.

Take the two best clearance midfielder from any team in the comp right now and I guarantee they have something to worry about. For example take Clayton Oliver and Jack Viney out of your midfield.

And who was the Magpies star who labelled them grubs ? No different to every grub from every club who booed Goodes out of the game. One of the most childish things in footy from dumb sheep imo and highlighted last week every time Langdon got the ball as an example. Really ??? Because he made some gamesmanship type comment about opposition ? Blight on the game by every dill that does it.

This is the point of initial contact. His arm is already at 90 degs to his body moving upward.

The Goodes thing was appalling and disgusting, he was one of my very favourite players, but that was a long time ago now

I don't mind the abuse Ginnivan gets normally, he invites it, but there are no excuses for booing an injured teenager

Langdon was asking for it just like Ginnivan

I think it’s the booing of an injured player, no one likes to see players injured.

Commentators are flat. Not because of bias, but simply because I don’t think they identified any other narrative coming into the match other than “can the Pies do it again?”
Brave Pies was the script for the evening.
Sydney blew that away …

4 and a half goal loss to the #2 side in the competition without our #1 clearance player and #2 clearance player/X factor isn’t something Pies fans would be too disappointed about considering the Swans brought the heat and ended up on 72 tackles.
4 and a half goal loss to the #6 side in the competition.

Look whatever you need to feel better is ok with me, but let’s be truthful, the Swans started the day in 6th place. We got to #2 as a direct result of beating you.

Thats my point. You’re the #2 side now that you’ve beaten us. You’re arguing semantics and it’s pretty silly.

Of course I feel fine, we lost by 27 points against your mob, a flag contender, at your home turf, without our #1 inside mid and our match winner from the last 2 weeks - you expecting me to be sad or angry?

Swans deserved the win and rightfully got it today. If you go back pre-game, I tipped the swans by 23 points so I wasn’t far off.
