The phrase 'Break a Leg' is actually a term used to wish someone good luck in the theatrical world. But I would not expect some Geelong supporting philistine to know that. Charlie only kicked 1-1 in his first AFL game in over 300 days while at the other end of the ground Tom booted 0-0 with his five touches ! :)

One thing from last night, Dougal Howard is no second ruckman. He was too easily pushed off the ball in the ruck contests and appeared much more effective in defence. Maybe Howard back to defence and Dixon and Ryder up forward would be better value. Then again it is hard to argue for change when you beat the top side.

if Ryder can find some form having him in the side does two things, it gives us a viable second ruckman and it takes some of the focus off big Charlie.

Hawkins was the only player in the match not to take a mark.

I have an extra reason for wanting Port to do well tonight. In a few minutes, I'll be commencing an epic walk from RAAF Base Edinburgh to the city. Don’t ask me why - as people who have done stupid things in the past have stated, "Because it was there." It's all part of the 100 day Global Challenge, where teams from all over the world compete to travel as far as they can in the 100 days. Today is "beat your personal best" day.

So I really need Port to do well tonight, because it's a helluva long way to walk, to see your team get smashed :).
How did you go philreich?
How are the legs today?

The noise for the last minute with everyone standing clapping and cheering was unbelievable

Bit of pent up frustration vented there
Proved to the likes of old mate Janus who have been blaming the crowd for the lack of energy that the energy is still there, it's just been laid dormant by the coaching and the inconsistency of the team. The 37,000 who were there last night made more noise than 50,000 sitting through a typical Ken Hinkley snoozefest. Give us something to cheer and we'll cheer it.
