Umpires evening up the free kick count and GWS cashing in big time.

Also Brent Daniels went one pick before Charlie Spargo, would love him at the Dees. Great running game, great distributor.

Why do there appear to be shed loads of empty seats? Stadium isn’t massive - I imagined it would surely sell out.
It was mostly dogs fans that bought tickets and I reckon they’ve left early.

Also they had a heap of fans flying up today and there flights got delayed . Those people will have had a great day Indeed

Fair enough.

I feel a bit for anyone who enjoyed their big day in the airport. Been there. It stinks

Compare our year to the Dogs and Dons. We didn't win as many games (obviously) but we also didn't cop as many beltings - only in Geelong in R2 where we won the I50s 48-72. Dogs conceded 76 I50s to 37 tonight and got smashed in contested ball 167-125 (uncontested possessions 227-179). If we hadn't have shat the bed in so many close games we could have at least spared everyone from having to watch those two sides embarrass themselves in finals.

So my western bulldogs supporting mate invited me over his house for the game. I only made it for the second half and boy that was disappointing. I couldn't care less about the results but would have liked a closer game just for a bit of feeling in the game. Once it got to about 6 goals you knew it was over. Hopefully tonight will give something. I have a feeling it will be much the same boys vs men.

Absolute umpiring chaos in the first few minutes here. Lions getting reamed.

I just want one good game this weekend...the others were rather dull affairs.

They f’ed up. Should have been 5 or 6 goals up early. They didn’t, the tide turned and the opposition have duly punished them. They’re Melbourning to an extent. Still think they’ll roll the Giants next week.
Richmond are just that good. Premiership favourites by a lonnnng way now.

fu** imagine having the chance to get Martin and instead picking a non drinking long distance runner with s**t footy skills.

Eh, 3-4 years in, that looked like a massive fu**up in itself when he was a headcase looking to head to GWS until even they didn't want a bar of him.

Yeah but Martin had too many neck tattoos and didn’t attend an elite private school. He also looks a bit ethnic. It was the correct call.

If you believe he was ever actually leaving. It was all a contract negotiation and I'd take Martin's first 4 years over Scully and Trengoves entire careers

I believe he gave it some thought, no idea tho, next time I run into him when out for sushi I'll duck the chopsticks and ask him.

I'd have taken Trengove pre-foot injury to be honest ... tho you could argue Scully's best game is still that Friday night against the Dogs.
