Kelli Underwood was the one who called the Bartel point and yeah, I agree, she kind of fluffed her lines on that one. Not a great call.

Hudson's call of the Nick Davis goal was brilliant though. Heartbreaking for us Cats fans of course, and I hate everything about the actual game itself, but still, objectively speaking he elevated the moment as a piece of theatre. The pitch and intonation was perfect.
Still too soon.
Someone ban this man.

Well they are witches hats. The whole team hat treatment doesn't come out lightly on fanfooty. Reserved only for genuine insipid performances.
Cheers - I was looking at it on a small screen and it was hard to see them clearly

I don't look at fanfooty often enough and should look at it more

Which only make it worse for me.. the only thing that tempers it ..is we know what happens down the track

'I see it but I don't believe it'. Spoken like a true Geelong supporter.

Dwayne Russell is the worst mainstream commentator I've ever heard for any sport at all, let alone just AFL. Absolutely awful.
Scary thing is his competition for the worst are all current footy callers as well. Plus the recently retired (but not remotely missed) McAvaney.

Agree. I remember in the 186pt demolition of Melbourne (the one that got Bailey fired) when Trent West kicked a goal - his tag line was "Go West, young man!" Like wtf are you talking about, sir?
There was a worse one in the same game. Watts kicks an absolutely regulation goal halfway through the third quarter - the margin is around 140 points - and Russell’s description?

“That’s a work of art”.

Absolute ass clown.

Was looking over our 1992 season. Our run of games between Round 6-9 was completely insane.

Round 6: Geelong 25.25 (175) def. Fitzroy 11.11 (77)
Round 7: Geelong 37.17 (239) def. Brisbane (75)
Round 8: Geelong 32.18 (210) def. Adelaide (87)
Round 9: Geelong 23.13 (181) def. Essendon 17.22 (124)

Unbelievable.

That team could pile on goals like no other I've ever seen, problem was they allowed them the other way almost as easily, even our defenders attacked.
