    Interesting to watch between WC & WB.
    The umpires didnt know who they should favour, the team they always look after hand and foot at home, or their current darlings the Bulldogs!!
    No deliberate OOB always the benefit of the doubt, amazing what a week does........
    For the record they nearly choked but it finished up 11-15 the Bulldogs way!!

    The Bulldogs losing is good for us.
    We are above them on the ladder.

    So we're the guinea pigs for a ****ed rule, lose a game, the head of ops at the AFL says he sees no problem with how the rule was adjudicated and a week later not a single deliberate OOB when there were at least 5 that were worse than anything we did and we copped 4 frees against.

    These guys make Trump look ethical and factual.

    I read on AFL site yesterday that since Bolton has coached Carlton his win record is only 1 behind Buckley in that time

    GWS incur three injuries versus C'wood.
    Corr (concussion), Reid (concussion), Coniglio (leg).

    Melbourne, wow. just goes to show how soft we were against the Crows. It's amazing what can be achieved with total commitment. We need to bring this against Freo, nothing less will do.

    The rest of the comp should thank us for making Adelaide so complacent they now think they just have to turn up and they will win easy.

    A sluggish start last week and overrun this week.

    Nothing more certain than Adelaide currently being in a heavy training phase. They've got their eyes on well beyond the week to week stuff.

    Collingwood loses. Ciao Bucks.
    Maynard (37) allowed Johnson to run through to score a goal.
    The defender slipped and recovered but it was too late.
    No Collingwood player on the defensive side of the pack.

    Agreed and would have liked DH to have said exactly that rather than waxing lyrical about how unreal Adelaide were - "Best side I have coached against" or something similar. What he should have said was that "we turned it up, gave up and didn't want to compete in hostile conditions ". Adelaide started drinking their own bath water sraight after that and have been smacked twice. No easy games and teams have to be switched on each week.

    Hogan from Melbourne has been diagnosed with testicular cancer so will be out for a while getting that sorted.

    Some times losing a game of football in the last 21 seconds is not the worse situation in life.

    For Pete's sake, I hope they put Buckley out of his misery. Looks like death warmed up at the press conference. 2-6 and a loss to Hawthorn is all she wrote.
