Ryder out is massive for us. He absolutely dominated today and could see him doing the same next week.

Our task next week is somewhat easier with his misfortune.
Carlise has a baby due as well. He may be stupid enough to attend that.

What a *smile* weekend of footy finals. We lose and the Scum win. Doesn't get much worse than that. The 2018 PF was worse but this is not far behind. I'm *smile* pissed off.

At least we are still alive.

Still can't believe that game. Who would have believed that Cox would take 3+ contested marks and kick 3 goals. That Mihocek and DeGoey kick freak goals when the game is on the line at the death.
The WAs must be so happy with the media that ran the 'Dirty Pies" front page article. (Bet it was Murdoch owned) Gave them such motivation for a result they arrogantly believed impossible.
But umps really did their part.

The best thing about it is that the Eagles players lost yet still have to serve 2 weeks in quarantine :rotfl2 :rotfl2

McGowan has really *smile* them over.

Yes, saw that; even the poor emergencies who didn't get to play!

Last night Vlastuin got penalised for holding the ball. Robinson didn’t even lay an effective tackle. He tried to grab Vlastuin but he bounced off him and the ball spilled loose. That is play on.

There is absolutely no doubt that we are umpired to a different standard and at a vast disadvantage. You just have to look at how all 7 other teams were umpired this week to realise that.

We get *smile* over every week.
Yep.

There was a free paid against the eagles and an eagles player disposed of the ball after the whistle. No 50m penalty. If he was wearing yellow and black you can guarantee a 50 and people will be saying stupid, indiscipline blah blah.

And yet Cameron wasn’t pinged for exactly the same thing. That was play on, nothing to see here. Until the umpires are made to publicly explain conflicting incidents like this, it will never improve.
When it comes to the umpiring department, the AFL is like the CCP. No democratic analysis allowed; total control and repression of any explanations or questions.

Its hard to watch.
Milocheck was delist material at 3qtr time and then he kicks one out his ass and the outmarks McGovern.
Penderbury is Collingwood.
He just opens the game up for them.
People forget during Collingwood's poor patch, Penderbury was injured

Have to say it Pendlebury is a HOF er. Just never plays a bad game, never wastes a possession and dont think ive ever seen him get caught. I can see him play another 5 years and still be putting up the same numbers and still be considered one of the top 5 players in the game.

That would only be good if we won. To lose to them would be just unbearable and totally top off 2020 as the most terrible year in living memory

Richo gave Mihochek the MVP. 10 DISPOSALS.
Would have thought Liam Ryan was a standout.
He also said McGovern was the best defender in the game in the last 10 years. The fools he is surrounded by are rubbing off on him!

I'm pretty surprised and bemused by the Collingwood win narrative. Maybe I was on my pat malone, but I thought they had a decent chance. West Coast were favourites sure, but Collinwood were on the improve and looked a heap better with deGoey and Treloar back.

One of the greatest finals wins ever? Good win sure, but OTT IMO. The whole hub iso thing is overstated. Clubs are used to travelling, and Collingwood travel well historically, and they are well and truly used to being confined to hubs. A week in a nice hotel is now akin to being in the hole in Boggo Road?

Anyway, good win sure, greatest finals win ever? Way OTT hype.
