So glad someone mentioned Ellis- he looks like s**t. I've spent 20 years attached to a bong, religiously overeat, and can't stroll to my letterbox without getting gassed and I still look better than that campaigner. He needs to visit a doctor.
If he's one of those blokes who is sick of being recognized around town and decided to eat himself into a completely different person, I'd understand it, but appearing on the telly kind of takes the wind out of that theory.

He's got a name around town as a guy who'll eat anything if nobody's looking

The commentators are actually right about the jumper clash. Geelong are a light jumper, dark shorts, Collingwood are a dark jumper, light shorts. Probably not a huge deal on field, but from a distance it's a bit difficult to tell who is who at times. What happened to Geelong always wearing white shorts?

Me too. There would be a large slice of hilarity if the cats manage to go out in straight sets this year.

Has Gaz put on some weight this year? None of the others have a jumper that tight. He looks like a tube of toothpaste
I reckon they'll lose to West Coast next week too. They've got a similar pressure game that Collingwood are cutting them up with now, and NicNat will cause them some serious headaches in his 60% game time.

I reckon it would be difficult on field. Plenty of players making some sloppy decisions. Hard to make quick decisions in traffic as I'd imagine they can't tell a lot of players apart with peripheral vision.

Would explain why the Geelong players have repeatedly run into each other.

Pretty huge second half for Scott’s reputation I reckon

I like the cats, most of my mates go for them so I want them to win

BUT, kardinia park always inflates their finishing position regular season and they don’t seem to be able to step up a gear in finals

The high tackle against Dangerfield when he was expecting a holding the ball free kick is one of the more satisfying things you'll see.

s**t game tonight to be honest
Yeah it really has been. Collingwood started out playing some great footy, and then its just turned into a dour slog since halfway through the first.

It's ridiculous that Geelong are still in this, because they've been flogged.
