    The Hawthorn-Geelong situation is indeed remarkable. Such an enthralling contest. As a neutral, there were stages during this game where I forgot which way either side was kicking, or who I was barracking for – you just knew it would go down to the wire.
    Speaking of odds, what chance Stevie J for the Brownlow? 25 votes in 16 games last year. When a wizard like that goes into the middle the men in white cannot but help notice. Some of his kicking and handballing under pressure is just astonishing. A worthy winner, if he can stay out of trouble – and Joel doesn’t take too many votes of him.

    Thanks Harmsy,

    The pub was superb.

    Sage call DB.

    I reckon Johnno will get a week for clocking Chappy late in June.

    My votes

    3 Johnson

    2 Hawkins

    1 Bartel

    Honorable mention to Kelly. He played on Rioli I think.

    Cats v hawks is THE game as a neutral I wouldn’t mind if they played best of 15 . The game has become so big it will be interesting if both have a mental let down this week .
    Son of froggy is coming along well . Hawks need , Lake and Schoemakers back
    Port are the other interesting side there progression under , Hinkley continues
    Thanks JTH
