Who the hell hates Ablett and Blitz? Ablett has always played the game fair and been very modest, not sure where to even start with Blitz. Yet our opponents have Tom Lynch, the bloke that keeps getting away with dog acts, diving Grimes, a captain that should have been rubbed out of the 17 GF if they were anyone else, sooky Riewoldt who looks like he is going to cry every-time something doesn't go his way. We aren't alone with the unlikable players.
lol, can't argue with that. tom lynch is definitely up there. as is grimes, cotchin and riewoldt.

blitz is probably not a widely hated player, there's just something about him that rubs me the wrong way.
ablett you must be kidding. widely respected prior to the gold coast defection. everyone kinda went, yeah ok, given the sums of money involved. then he spent 2 seasons "injured" because he'd had enough and wanted to come home. the religious stuff is neither here nor there, but he also unfortunately carries some of the stigma of the erratic behaviour of his dad.

my other grievances are:
- the father son rule gifting geelong 2 hall of fame players (hawkins/ablett)
- paddy clangers who was at the time about the best player in the comp, landing in your laps for dean gore and a bag of chips
- my suspicion through the association of steven dank and the consistently high playing weight of geelong (at the same avg height as other teams) that they have long dabbled in the black arts of PEDs
- selwood. this year is the first year the umpires have actually wised up to his ducking. its only taken them a decade. would be a great player without the ducking/shoulder dropping/whatever you want to call it. doesn't need to do it. statistics dont lie and you look at the last 20 years one player stands out for free kicks. it's because he's learned how to cheat the rules and the umps and afl were too stupid to catch on for all this time.
- kardinia park. i hate this shithole. it looks like sh*t, it plays like sh*t, and geelong always wins. [in some ways i actually miss the fact that all the suburban grounds like waverley, princes park, windy hill etc are gone. in its place we have 87 games at etihad. oh well. ]

its not a logical hate. its an emotional hate and that's what footy is about.

Fair enough, I'm not going to try and change your mind. But I will say on the Ablett front that a lot of people discounted his reason to want to come home (family reasons) and then his sister died during that trade period

It was unexpected wasn’t it? Sad, but not likely the β€˜family reasons’ when he requested a trade a year earlier.

Depends what you call unexpected, she had been struggling with mental health issues, think its very likely it was the main reason he wanted to come back

Class by Port fans,lose to us and still barracking for us in the granny,beers to you when I get to SA.
no sooking from me, pretty even umpiring, close game but in the last quarter it was up for grabs we got crushed out of the middle. impressive effort from richmond considering how we've gone in clearances throughout the year.

Jesus, the guy is a club legend, his father was a club legend, and literally every player for the last decade has nominated their destination.

Can we go back 10 years when Collingwood used to smash Richmond for fun.
