Not our day. It never felt like we ever were really in the game. Collingwood next week.

The aerial view of the pitch invasion on Franklin's 1,000th goal is quite a sight !!  8)

It was pretty insane, but then again he’s only the 6th player in over a century so I guess it’s a big occasion.

40-35 at halftime for Geelong after trailing from 39 minutes... What a dire messy half, jeez...

It looks like the Adelaide derby game yesterday was a cracker with a winning goal at the siren !

If you really feel like punching a "Pie", at least do it in their 50...not 15 meters from your own flippin' posts...  >:(

I didn't watch it. I just discovered that my tipping had unexpectedly gone awry at the last minute.  :laugh:

90-60 for Collingwood at Q3 (7 goals unanswered)

Cats now back at 90-78.

I am fuming and excited at the same time...

It's the hope that kills you...  :laugh:

You have to love a sport where the score can go from 53-90 to 91-90.  :laugh:

And from when Collingwood has their biggest lead... they scored 1 point and Geelong scored 51. Impressive.

They're saying that Geelong has only managed that big a final-quarter comeback 4 times in their entire history. Given they've been in the competition from the beginning in 1897, that's pretty darn memorable.

Geelong - Brisbane 48-39 at HT. Nicely poised.

A real tit for tat goal scoring, a very good game to watch.

Some really good phases for the Cats.

I better put it on (underneath Szymanowski for now). Shouldn't entirely miss the battle of the French Feline teams.  ;D

EDIT: And currently 54-57 is another reason to tune in.
