fu** off, Brownie.

Tonight was probably the only game of actual footy I've seen this year. Essendon were good, Sydney were good, and both sides brought their pressure.

Footy's more than clean scoring and good kicking. Otherwise, we'd be playing AFLX.

Buddy looked underdone, but if they can get him fit (and Reid stops cutting off his ball) look the fu** out. Most games have been more open than that, and he thrives in one on one environs.
Buddy is not underdone Geth . He was playing a midfield role around the ground especially at half forward . And drifted down back . He was going in hard .
And kicked a couple .

He was a looooong way from the Buddy Franklin who demands the ball, the bloke who relishes contest and contact.

He looked resigned and tired, and old tonight. I do not think he's past it, but that was the loosest jumper I've seen in about 8 years, and you don't wear loose jumpers at AFL level unless you've something to hide.

If The Swans had their kicking boots on, they would have won by 5 or 6 goals.

Really enjoying the sooking and melting on the * autopsy thread. Very enjoyable.

I saw a tough buddy willing in tight. Granted he didn’t play deep and lead . His up the ground work was good / team

* will only have a future if they get 4 quality talls in. I’m sure they’ll make a play for a seasoned forward or defender in the next few trade periods. But otherwise, I’m not worried about them. Feel some of their more seasoned players can be very hot and cold. A lot of other teams would have put them away tonight (a WCE/Port/Dogs etc) with the amount and type of chances the Swans had I feel. They fought and played well tonight though, intercept game and pressure was great.

fu** * though 🙂

I still find the Jobe love from the media bizarre. The guy is a convicted drug cheat and yet he's getting jobs in the media to which he's clearly unqualified and unsuited.

Is there any other major sporting code that treats their convicted drug cheats with such reverence?
Argentinian Soccer? Columbian Soccer?
