Jeez how did we lose to this sh*t team?
Round 1 is always very unreliable when it comes to season trends.

I can remember some great (and unexpected) Round 1 victories by us... only for the season to turn sour very soon afterwards. The one that stands out is the smacking we handed out to reigning premier Sydney in 2006. We went on to lose our next 13 or 14 games in a row and they ended up playing off in another Grand Final.

If we play the Hawks next week, we'd win by 5-6 goals. But that's footy.

Interesting round, the 2 leaders in my work tipping comp are 0-4 so far this round & will be 0-6 if the Swans can get up, some good piss taking opportunities coming up if this keeps going;)

A few comparisons getting thrown around here today suggesting that our win last week was not as great as we thought due to the Suns win over the Pies.

Can we make the same comparisons to tonight's game between the Lions and Port? Maybe our loss to Brisbane wasn't as bad as some feared.

Port are a top 4 team and are getting done by a similar margin as to what we did in exactly the same playing conditions.

Ugh such BS. Geelong did everything to choke that.

fu** off Sydney. That was 15 easy. Cheating campaigners.
See plenty of short kicks every game paid as marks but they choose that one, haven't seen the replay yet but that looked 15
I'm pretty sure they called it touched. The commentators didn't pick that up.

That commentary at the end was why i detest current commentators.

"Selwood had claims to htb that'll be talked about all week." "That 15m too."


What about Hawkins ******* up 2 regulation shots at goal? Let's talk about that all week.
Yep, Cats blew it.

Ump called play on as soon as they kicked the ball that Cameron marked. Thought it must have been because it was touched, didn't hear that call in the replay of that period of play though.

Very quick to call play on and judge the ball to be not 15m. Not as if it was an up and downer.

Anyway, Cats blew their chances...and fu** Sydney!!!
