It started to become obvious that the players were nervous, eyes were darting, looking for an option, stressed looks on faces, they knew they had to kick it and it seemed all a bit to much. Even after Zorko kicked his goal, there was no spark in the celebration to herald a come back, they just seemed resolved to loosing. I like the Lions, good luck to them, just not against my team!

Wayward Lions leave Fagan at a loss

“denying Charlie a good game”, that’s his job, it’s like saying I don’t like Howe because he always marks the overhead ball…………hang on, I don’t like Howe ’cause he does that.

I will respond to that by not responding…………damn it I did respond………..damn it, did it again

Cotchin doing it 'tough' since AFL breach

Freo did deserve to win, but I think the Pies got the rough end of the pineapple from the umpires

'No, no, no!' Did this stunning late umpiring call rob the Pies?

Trying to put other clubs of poaching CCJ, as there are clubs sniffing around. Some Tigs supporter are worried he may leave because he’s not getting a game.

Six talking points from AFL Round 9

I was going to say the same thing. He may have been out of favour for a while, but he’s a Premiership player, Dennis Cometti coined him “The Boy from Pinjarra”.

No

Were the Eagles dudded by a seriously controversial score review?

Just the saw the Jake Carlisle incident, how much of a *smile* wit is Jake Carlisle?

Jake Carlisle slammed for Steven Baker-esque low act

Sorry, but another one. 4 or 5 D’s players on the at HB, ball in the middle of them, Viney is on his backside scrambling to pick it up, only D’s players around him, they have time, the other 3-4 players wait for Viney gather the ball whist standing right over the top of him, he has to handball to one of his upright players, Port players arrive. Why the ……. didn’t one of the guys on their feet gather the ball and look to dispose of it? Just time wasting and turning an attacking opportunity to an instant defensive one. I was frustrated, and I’m not even a Melbourne supporter!

Infuriating and irrelevant, Melbourne push their fans to the edge

The decision making last night was so poor. In the first quarter, deep in the defensive pocket a ball tumbles out to where two D’s players are converging, a complete paddock around them, one player running up field, the other down field, not one Port player near them. The player running up field is in the prime position to take the ball, but slows to allow the player running down field to gather. I know teams like to run overlap, so you have players to pass to ahead of the ball, but, it was soooooo wrong, they had so much time, but yet by the time the player running down gathered the ball, Port players had managed to arrive and cut off any outlet kick or handball. Why, oh why? They had space, if the attacking running had of kept running and gathered, he would had have time and space to run 20-30 metres, drawing Port players, but instead the two of them got trapped and went nowhere.

Thanks Nelson

If Dylan is the yardstick for Academy awards, they will be handing a few around. Not the first to accentuate contact to get a free, and he won’t be the last. Move on

Dylan Grimes' Academy Award submission wins the Tigers a downfield free

Could had a Norm Smith medal had he been able to kick straight in last year GF

Tiger's bizarre choice of kick for simple set shot bewilders commentators

Can’t really argue with that, but he’s on his way up to QLD, just hope it’s not to late.. Wish Dimma would let the Balta beast loose and let him roost them from outside 50, got a feeling he’s been told to resist his natural temptation. We miss old bobble head too, plying his trade at GC now, bloody Rance!

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 9 and (some of) Round 10

The problem is, unlike last year (and most will say, you don’t get consecutive games at the “G”, IMO, not a factor) the season doesn’t have as big of a tail for us to get back the players we need. Crunch time Tiges, gotta stay in touch otherwise goodnight! Just need to make finals, and anything can happen.

👍 can’t argue with that, Port are going well, history say the wheels should fall off, but, after all, it’s history. Lions looking good. Pies will just keep on going. GC might start to slow down, Saints are firing, Carlton showing some. Dogs, I hope they have an off night this week.

How far can the new-look Saints go marching?

Might be stretching it a little, but I like the optimism. I think the ship will be righted, just hope it happens in time. For me, the Doggies are kinda like us, the back their game style and don’t deviate to much from that, so I’m hoping flooding won’t be an issue, as they’ll want to run, instead of chip it around. As Jordan Lewis said, if teams try to go at Richmond, 1-2 times out of 10 it comes off. Saints ran at us and won playing that way, I hope that’s the 1 and there is no 2.

AFL power rankings Round 8

Saints are going well and should finish in the top 8. It’s hard to say they won’t go far in the finals, having seen my team go from zero to heros in 2016/17 as with the Doggies in ’16. Richmond, however, had had some finals experience prior to ’16. As the Saints haven’t, can they keep it together and not get over awed? Time will tell I guess.

How far can the new-look Saints go marching?

Possibly, but I still maintain, get to the finals, and anything can happen

I wonder how Slobbo and the Geek will treat him, he’s about to come on 360.

I like the sound of the truffles, if you know anything about them I’d love to pick your brain? I have some land up in the North East of Vic, where I grow Chestnuts, thinking of adding some young trees with truffle spores.

I’m trying not to accuse, as I have no idea who started it, but it’s daily and relentless.
