  1. Rick Kane says:

    “The Cats are good. And a pleasure to watch. The Hawks are solid. And tolerable to watch.” Seriously, JTH, after 7 rounds that’s your assessment of the two top sides of 2013? Maybe open the other eye and the Hawks will look a little more than tolerable. By the way, after tonight’s results, the Hawks are on top of the ladder. I find that pleasurable. Cheers

  2. What else would you expect from a Cats fan RK?

    Pies pressure was very good last night. Forced a lot of Cats to rush/hurry. Many costly errors. Lost the run in the final quarter – too much petrol in the third?

    Pies were too good.

    Looking forward to the post mortems and Pie-lebrations.

  3. We’re just taking it one win over Geelong at a time, JTH.

  4. From where I was sitting you blokes could have been six goals up at quarter time.

    Then you looked gone.

    Then you didn’t.

    Then you weren’t.

  5. Peter Flynn says:

    Geel v Coll was a throwback to 2010 footy.

    Never write Collingwood off.
