NUFC, YES.
Taylah who goals from a dodgy free or mark from a blatant push in the back
Memories of the second Showdown of 2014, when Sam Jacobs kicked the opening goal after receiving a free for literally tripping over his own feet.

One of the all-time tonesetters for a collective umpiring performance that would’ve made an Indian bookmaker blush.

Everyone in this team should be focused on the business of putting in the performance necessary to win the flag. And that means flogging the fu** out of Adelaide to restore the percentage we lost against those pissants from Brisbane.

If only you applied this mantra to Ken.

Robert Walls on commentary accusing Byron of picking him off like a coward, when Biglands lined him up and Byron chose to meet him head-on despite giving away significant size and weight — the antithesis of ‘cowardice’.

🤪
He also said and I quote "Biglands should've been smarter to be aware of who was around him." LMAO this bloke contradicts himself within the same sentence.

Just tracking ahead to the Bulldogs game, and beyond........ thus with full capacity, and no curtain raisers, will we revert to the normal entry process again ie. you scan your season ticket at the gate, and then go sit in either:

1. any seat in the western stand unreserved areas, or
2. your allocated seat (if you selected in sit in the other stands, or purchased a reserved western stand seat) given to you at the beginning of the season?

Seems pointless to go through the laborious process of Ticketek when you are not trying to fit 50k members into 40k (or less) available seats.

Or is that too logical?

I reckon we will win comfortably but it won't be a massive smashing.

Later in the year when we have X, Butters and Jones back in the side is a different story though.

Have hardly even thought about footy this week. That loss last week was a bit of a blow to interest levels that'll take a while to recover.
I am the same ... my level of Showdown excitement is normally off the scale by now, but I have hardly thought of the game until now

I think it's to do with their COVID safe plan as well. We're Western Stand members and had 2 tickets seperate to the rest of the group for the Saints game. But then their seats had some problem, so they got moved to what was going to be an empty row, and with more seats, we were allowed to go sit with them - but had to give an AO staff member our details for COVID reasons so they knew we were sitting in those seats.

I'm sure being three goals down at quarter time as Tex plays a blinder whilst Ken looks blankly out the box sucking on a coke will get you fired up.
Fired up to #sackhickey big time

I do have a confession though, I'm not going this week, will probably catch the replay. Going to the Medieval Festival with a group of mates, booked in to the banquet they are having. Mead and hog shank for all while I giggle at the LARPers.

Last time I went I bought a brass/bronze roman praetorian helmet and a few swords, this time i'll probably buy something just as ridiculous.
