  1. JTH your reason for tipping the Cats is outstanding.

  2. DBalassone says

    “Tiges sneak up the ladder by beating the average and the unlovable ”

    Spot on JTH. For a side to be in 6th spot, only half a game from 3rd, after 14 rounds without having to beat a team in the top 8 is bizarre. Strange days indeed.

  3. PeterSchumacher says

    Port the sentimental favourite? Ye gods!

  4. Rick Kane says

    “I’m going for Geelong but only because I barrack for them. The Cats by 2 points.” – in a game like tonight’s that is as good a reason as any. Hawks by 50

  5. Rick Kane says

    At one point in the last I thought the Cats were going to win by 50! Great game. There’s no curse. The Cats just know how to play the Hawks. Cats were all over us for too much of the match. Well done.

  6. That’s so mature Rick. By the way, I’m in Paris where most of the talk on the street is about Pav’s return.

  7. Richard Naco says

    “I’m going for Geelong but only because I barrack for them. The Cats by 2 points.”

    I am infinitely pleased to see the true and faithful be rewarded. Five fold.

    GO CATS!

  8. Oh dear – how awful! Cats were awesome, though. How on earth did Brisbane manage to rattle them a fortnight ago? I’m still hoping for the Hawks, but they need to be hungrier.
