Only switched on at about 5mins left in the 1st, and we looked ordinary. Better in the 2nd, but not as good as we have been this season i dont think

Just turned it on. Have to watch it with the sound off unfortunately. You can totally hear people in the crowd having conversations in the sound mic's. Plus that one bloke in the crowd chanting Giants by himself! Wtf??

Haha, isn't that bloke a real treat ... the one bloke who tries unsuccessfully to start a chant isn't unusual at a game of footy, but with a small crowd, and him clearly sitting on top of the effects mic, the viewers are the beneficiaries.

Yep. Sorry, sarcasm doesn't convey well haha.

Good win. Was happy with the late ones.
Haha, no, no it doesn't.

I just realised our last game is against Adelaide at Casey ... could decide who plays finals. Of course, Adelaide will probably beat North today, and we'll lose to the Dogs next week anyway, because thats the Melbourne way.

As predicted, Adelaide win ... need North to drop one of their last two to be a chance ... Freo in Perth in the last round might be it ... and we'll have already played

No we don’t. We win out and we will make it due to Freo v North. We will jump Adelaide on percentage and jump the loser of Freo-North.

He was over behind the goals to right of screen. Full points to him for persistence in the heat. He walked a lap at half time too in order to get a few cheers from the crowd in the grandstand shade.

Was an enjoyable day at the footy. Always fun to get a chance to sing the song on a victory.

There were a very strong number of women and young girls there. It's clear that having the AFLW will generationally change the numbers of girls taking up and continuing the sport. Arguments about how the game currently isn't up to standard are very short-sighted.
