9. North Melbourne

The Roos lost the game but it was arguably their best performance of the season. Poor skills killed them, but the effort was sensational. Before today Geelong was the No.1 pressure team in the competition and North easily out-pressured the Cats, 182 to 175. It was Geelong’s second-lowest pressure rating this year. Since the Good Friday debacle the Kangas lost to Port by three goals, thrashed Carlton and then ran with Geelong until Gazza iced the game. The main difference today was talent and skill execution. The great news is the Kangas have found one in Nick Larkey. He had 13 score involvements, the next best was Geelong’s Tim Kelly with 10. That is unbelievable for a 198cm player in just his fifth game.

I thought Slobbo was ‘putting Brad Scott on the agenda’? Has certainly changed his tune.

Not sure if this has been posted before but this is brilliant. The full sunday footy show after our 1999 flag. Denis in the post match presser talking about how there are people high up within the AFL that don't want north to succeed certainly was proven to be correct. Love how they talk about how dilapidated Arden St is, but that it didn't matter because we get our football right. Pretty much the exact opposite these days

Oh don’t worry, he’s death riding Scott. He’s just setting it up. At that level of journalism they have the next story in mind when they’re on the current story. He’d already have the bones of a story where Scott fails and one where Scott succeeds.

You’re probably right - but why then do all of his stories read like he cobbled them together in 30-45 minutes pissed out of his mind?

Anyway shut up Robbo, Geelong lifted when they needed to and to quote Terry Wallace “what good is it - IT DOESN’T GET US ANYTHIN’!!!!”

I can’t watch it. It says ‘video unavailable’.

That’s been happening a bit lately. Try clicking on the first video in the three shown on the video unavailable notice, it’ll redirect you to YouTube and you can watch the video there.
Meanwhile on Yourporn you experience no such issues. Lift your game BigFooty. :stern look
