  1. Yep Port did a job on Geelong. Are they that good or were the Cats ripe for a loss? I’m thinking the former and hoping the latter.

    “The pizza didn’t taste as good.

    But it was still pizza.” – Love it.

    We were eating pizza at the Preston Bullants Junior Footy Club welcome to 2014 season gathering. Jackson was following the game on my phone and I was worried for my phone.


  3. Peter Flynn says

    They can win this.

    Must finish top two.

    They have a good ruckman.


  4. The Wrap. says

    Love a good Sleepy Hollow lamentation. Also loved The Sage headline – Plucky Port Stuns Geelong. I think The Addy got a lot closer with – Power Makes Grand Statement in 40 Point Win. Then there was The Other Addy – Port Proves They are Contenders Not Pretenders. It seems the further West you go the surer the heart beat.

    Port are a very good side quality small forwards the hard working and accurate kicking ,
    Schultz ( yet another tigers stuff up ) and the x factor in , Westoff give them a dangerous forward line and in Lobbe a quality ruck man ( good on the two clubs in , Port and ,
    Collingwood re Grundy are reaping the benefits for having the guts to draft young ruck man ) Polec and White have been big pick ups ( Richmond are missing his pace big time ) Injuries will as always play a big part although I fancy they got the cats at the perfect time . Thanks JTH

    Looks like they are this year’s us. Hope we are next year’s them.
