A minute ago, after the most recent goal, I thought "oh boy, Olivier is really going to be hooked on this sport now".  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

leading by 33 means nothing
leading by 33 means nothing
leading by 33 means nothing
leading by 33 means nothing
leading by 33 means nothing

leading by 34 means nothing

It feels effin' good though...

*breathes*

Am I too old to have a Cameron and an Hawkins poster in the bedroom ? Not sure how my beloved would take it  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Last week was double points round in my local pub's tipping competition. Not a good time to only pick four games. The one plus is that very few others picked the upset results either but I have dropped a bit further behind the leader.
Cheers

The uncertainty of it all is just mind boggling.

The timeline of GWS v Essendon earlier on is a case in point. They were up +30 in Q1, back down to +4 or 5 in Q2, up +30 in Q3 and only eventually won with +2  :o

yep, 30 points means nothing...

Good grief. And I haven't even been bothering watching, I've been catching up on last night's Premier League instead...

The sporting grass is always greener somewhere else.

But the halftime score, hmmm.... St Kilda by 3 points.  But as it's 3.11(29) to 4.2(26), it appears that St Kilda is generously avoiding kicking goals. That may return to bite them.

They were 0.7(7) after Q1, we were let off the hook really. And biting them in the end it did, thankfully.

Back home in time for Q3, a scrappy game but a good 4 pts in the bag.

Holden's team for us next weekend  8)

Looks like a fairly steady win for the Cats against the Suns earlier today, based on the timeline. I'll catch this one up tomorrow once the AFL Website has uploaded it.

Melbourne and Richmond losing are good surprises  8)

I wasn't surprised by Richmond losing. Melbourne, on the other hand... well no-one in my office competition picked it.

I've not being paying much attention. With Eurovision I have my hands full.  :laugh:

Lol. But it gives players a rest, and injured players more time to get back.

Pretty good, very close game so far.

Good recovery from -21 to + 3 at half time for Geelong. That made the crowd quiet at least.

Very good game, got it on BT broadcast up here.

Geelong stepped it up gradually after going 21 behind to take it over the line, but I was still very nervous at +15 with only 3 minutes to go  :laugh:

Bulldogs in our next game, it's going to be a tough one again.

I note in passing that my sister is thoroughly unimpressed by your decision to select Geelong as the team you identify with.  :laugh:
