Two boys running across a field racing together. Laughing and bursting with energy. One goes ahead faster. The second boy finds more speed within him to match the first. Then the first finds more speed. Again the second boy matches him and then goes ahead. The first boy rises again and on they go. The purpose of sport is to bring out the best in each other. The athletic culture is to compete and improve.

Wow what a great club to inspire such articulate, detailed and concentrated bashing. All this stuff reads like a giant lover letter such is the familiarity with which the subject is addressed. I think the cats should listen to all this free advice… keep it coming. If someone throws rocks make a wall.

Geelong Cats season 2021 review: Old heads fail to prevail again

Did Graham Arnold mess with a winning combination or were the changes forced?

'Really great, intelligent football': Arnie's weird boast as Socceroos' Japanese jinx continues

Hawkins improved into his thirties.
They no longer will play their breakout games when everyone gets all excited about emerging talent and what that means for the future.
Those Dee midfielders crashing out of packs with a step and a skip seems to be the indelible image people are riffing on for the future of footy…
Those individuals can capture imaginations such is the spectacle of their deeds and they are rightfully celebrated…. then lauded … then mythologized…. meanwhile back at the ranch.

‘Our best footy was as good as anyone’: Geelong set to renew Scott’s contract

Shall we just call it CAT BASHING so we all know what we are talking about..
Hate Club BS… ooohh big number next to their names… wrong body stats..
Wrong body shape…. I can prove they will fail because the numbers say so…
I predict the end…. it’s all over for …… Listen to me I know the future…. I am the Soothsayer …
Cats have persisted by recruiting on character… A few of the cats are older but they are not too old… You can only do though individuals and they are all okay for next year at least… beyond that ..you are smoking a pipe if you think it will all be the same… Vic Cumberland was 43… it depends on the idividual and if the cats have a lot of individuals who can play past the average maybe it’s because they did recruit on character. They could all of them have a big year next year…. It’s as easy to say that as it is to say anything. I’ll let you be in my dream if I can be in your dream .. Bob Dylan

Is this your club's most important trade period in recent memory?

If we banned all the Grand Finals does that mean the season could keep going and there would be something to do in the summer?

The AFL should take the grand final on the road every year

Now you’re talking… more goals!
3 in 45 seconds has to be a record.
Four point system has been sucking the life out of the game for too long.

‘This is just the start’: Can the Demons be the next dynasty team?

AFL/MCC/Paul Roos manufactured inside job success.
Great to see the silver tails off their knees and learning to mingle but lets not get carried away!
This handicap system has to have some reverse limits that kick in somewhere.
Dynasty Sshmynasty….

‘This is just the start’: Can the Demons be the next dynasty team?

Goodwin not speaking is not good..
He probably had been thinking about what to say for a while and then it’s robbed of him.
Baz should have had a handler to keep him in line. He’s a talent but needs help like anyone.

'Basil cooked that': Footy world outraged over incredible grand final presentation oversight

The NRL must be hard on the body man those guys were bruised and battered as you said.
I’d rather have a strong feeling about the interpretation of a song I cared about than a “Wow aren’t they famous” feeling about a less connected world star.

'One minute to end 57 years of pain': Talking points from Melbourne's extraordinary premiership win

are we haggling?

'One minute to end 57 years of pain': Talking points from Melbourne's extraordinary premiership win

Cats were just off second best team by 9 points.
If the cats had of made it the Dees would never have scored that heavily.
We only have to make up 15 goals.
Higgins will be better as he settles in.

'One minute to end 57 years of pain': Talking points from Melbourne's extraordinary premiership win

Ben Brown…… a few well placed stories to run his price down.

'One minute to end 57 years of pain': Talking points from Melbourne's extraordinary premiership win

They looked fitter or did I already say that?

'One minute to end 57 years of pain': Talking points from Melbourne's extraordinary premiership win

Give him three points.

WATCH: Was Max Gawn robbed of a goal by controversial call?

Are Melbourne fitter than other teams?

'One minute to end 57 years of pain': Talking points from Melbourne's extraordinary premiership win

Melbourne are the healthiest and fittest looking footy team I’ve ever seen.
I know winning helps the impression but what are these guys doing to look so good.
Pilates? Low Carb Diet? Meditation? or is it just Simon Goodwin’s own fitness standards.
The umpires I thought went Melbournes way.
I think they pilfered Ben Brown somehow.
Christians Petrakas game was the equal of any final anytime..
Up there with Goddard and Martin.
Gawn and Goodwin
Clayton and Christian
The Fab Four.
All the stars were shining for moments so it was high standard.
I didn’t need a close finish as all the goals make their own magic.
Melbourne Powerhouse Juggernaut for years to come?
What’s the secret to that Golden Glow?
Perth was awesome and Aussie Anthems interpreted should be a standard.
The big International Act is a Pose we don’t need.
Nice Welcome to Country and really felt that energy like never before.
I know there’s a contract but that’s a legal reason for MCG monopoly and really that’s the only reason they have. Words on Paper.

'One minute to end 57 years of pain': Talking points from Melbourne's extraordinary premiership win

You know every team could improve and play amazing footy and we’d still judge things on the win loss… we have no connoisseurs.

Flying high? Not likely, as the West Coast Eagles might be headed straight down

I appreciate my clubs successes and acknowledge their achievements.
The fact they don’t win a GF does not diminish what they did do.
People remember 1989 because of the way the Cats fought it out.
That’s a loss from 30 years ago that’s still remembered .

'How long can this go on?': Talking points from yet another Geelong finals failure

Contending is pretty awesome.
Winning is good but being there and getting there to a prelim is an awesome achievement.

'How long can this go on?': Talking points from yet another Geelong finals failure

Well it might help you next time….
It’s my way of making sense of the depth of this strange tribal love and what’s best to do with it. Without letting my emotions go crazy on me.
Time doesn’t heal things on it’s own… you did that.
We get sold a lot of crap and as great as a GF win is …
I probably enjoyed the Bulldogs win as much as the Cats ones.

'Another Cinderella story about to happen': History says Melbourne are due to deliver

Flags are a nice dream and a token of the ultimate success but is it really what playing sport is all about? There’s plenty of heartbreak for just about everyone if you bow down and worship here… so don’t lose the ultimate prize which is simply showing off your skills week in week out and enjoying the game for what it is. Which is not just a means to an end. All that aside they are a lot of fun to be part of just don’t get consumed by them.

'Another Cinderella story about to happen': History says Melbourne are due to deliver

My two cents.
Don’t prepare for whoever you think you opponent might be..
Prepare for the fight of your life.
You never know who’s going to show up when it comes to something as dynamic as an Aussie Rules Footy Team.

‘They were deers in the headlights’: Is Ken Hinkley the man to lead the Power to their next flag?

Why would he trade down to the mythical MCC/G pampered AFL pets? Where’s the challenge? I heard he might buy a surf board.
