They must feel they are a real chance of knocking us over if they spent the money appealing the 1 match cunnington ban like that. Seems desperate given they would have little revenue with COVID and it would have cost them a lawyer and funds.

I don't think he'll play either :(
Will be absolutely the right decision to hold him back if they have any concerns. Let's fact it, our boys can do a fine job of making this game an immense struggle without putting Cameron's fitness on the line as well.

Ultimately if we can't win this game without Jez, we have far more significant problems as a club than his immediate fitness.

Yeah we should be able to structure up just five with Rohan in. See what happens Saturday to see who goes out for Cameron. I always thought it would be Rohan out for him when it gets down to it but we'll see

Says the person who tries to use basic stats to justify his arguments.
Unbelievable.
I said solely looking at disposal count is too simplistic. Implying that you need to look at the bigger picture, incorporate more stats. Do you want me to explain every post for you? Maybe I could get a whiteboard and draw some diagrams if that helps.

Nothing been said about Tommy this week? Geez he looked to be struggling with a sore back late in the game on the weekend. Hopefully just a couple of collision knocks.

The bickering between members of the same tribe does astonish me.
Never, ever go into the Social Club then. My god some of our members - usually older - are just ******* pathetic. Some old 3AW listening-type supporters behind me at the Hawks game started paying out on Hawkins from the first bounce, saying how he was having another horrible year and totally useless.

Every week in there you hear people banging on about how much they hate certain star players, it's infuriating.

Good to have a beer behind the glass when it rains though.

One has to remember that the players' mums may well stumble on what is written about them.

As for the bickering, I am disconcerted by the sarcasm in many of the posts Geelong supporters direct at each other. After all, the song goes:

WE are Geelong.....

Can say that for most of the Reg Hickey Stand. They moan and carry on about every umpire decision.

Anything less than a flogging will be a disappointment and a trigger for further whining. Geelong by 25-35 points (i.e. not a flogging).

Cue the "Chris Scott must walk the plank" topic.
Their smallest loss was 41 points at home Vs a traveling interstate club.

That should be the minimum margin for us, but realistically Geelong at GMHBA should be a minimum 60 point win. I don't think a lot of people realise just how bad North are at the moment. This is a percentage booster and we absolutely have to take advantage of it.

Just read that if they win, it will be Geelong's 700th VFL/AFL win

What's our record for milestone games? :think:
