Fox have just highlighted how much Geelong have struggled against the fast ball movement, with really only Hawthorn's poor use and forward set up not punishing them. So basically, a better team would likely be cutting them up.
Hawks really struggling to score as we all probably expected. Their system is clearly good as you'd expect but just don't have the weapons to do damage.

So I’m putting it out there - neither Hawthorn nor Geelong can really score. Hawthorn v likely to be the lowest scoring team in the comp and Geelong not exactly scoring for fun.

Meanwhile we have the second-tightest defence in the comp.

Is it just me or does Geelong have the most average looking Guernsey in the AFL. Seriously boring team as well.

This is the kind of football I was afraid the man on the mark rule would bring. Hopefully it's just a case of Hawthorn not having the cattle to take it up to them. Don't want this type of footy to come into vogue. Boring as fu**.

Hawthorn have brought this sh*t every week. Good news is the fast attack rapid break is not only more effective but it’s better watching.

Wonder if it's Clarko trying to limit the damage like Roos did with us in 2014-15. Nothing to be gained for their kids by being blown away.

Quietly confident about next week. Geelong nowhere near as dangerous as I expected. If we shut down their high possession game we should be able to grind them down and run them out of steam.

Lol, Ling you're a moron, although it was an awful free kick, if the push comes after disposal, it's still downfield, it being a push makes zero difference
