Cheers mate. Geez that game was so bad it’s impacted my memory. I could have sworn we were already 10 goals down at half time.If you're talking about the last round of 1998, yes.
felt the same after the North final. losing to the Blooze in our first final in 20years i could forgive, as i was happy we made it, the port final while disappointing, was also on the cards after our finish to the season- if it wasnt that week it prob would have been the next.Other than that, the North final hit me the hardest. Over that off-season I wasn't sure I had it in me to go again.
1998, that season we didn’t have any consecutive losses all season, yet we found a way to finish outside the 8.If you're talking about the last round of 1998, yes.
The ball was no near the smother.Not even close to being similar, apart from the results..
Brown was kicking the ball and Whelan dived to try and smother and landed on his leg due to the tackler behind shifting Brown off the kick. Just a terribly unfortunate accident.
Thomas slid into Rohan's legs to win a disputed ground ball before Rohan could pick it up. Bloody dangerous and now rightfully illegal.
That was the game Shai showed he had it. He roved a pack spill and kicked a goal IIRC and kicked another early and you knew we had found another one. But we did lead by 30 odd points and lost and after those heartbreaking losses earlier it was a tough one to swallow.There were so many but I recall a game against sydney in about round 13 in 2017 when we dominated the first half and lost and after all the close losses before it I thought here we go again.
yes, he was electric in the 1st quarter as I recallThat was the game Shai showed he had it. He roved a pack spill and kicked a goal IIRC and kicked another early and you knew we had found another one. But we did lead by 30 odd points and lost and after those heartbreaking losses earlier it was a tough one to swallow.
After the previous 3 years 2016 was meant to be different. We had shown we could play over those previous 3 years by regularity beating the likes of hawthorn Fremantle swans etc. this was the first time we were going to beat the cats in what seemed like forever, like a little brother finally getting on top in a wrestle over the older brother. We were 40 odd points up and they get us again. Deflating. Proved our mental fragility. The flogging by Sydney 2 rounds later was bitter. Can still remember KB being livid on SEN about such an indsipid performance.Funny enough I didn't mind this one. I thought this game really showed the group how to play. They got very close and Geelong were panicking. We hadn't put genuine fear into them in years. I was really encouraged by that game. I thought that game put us on the track to 2017.
Pause it a second earlier and the hand is nearly under the armpit. Michael continues to push back into Richo and turns as he realises he's under the ball.Try this video and hit pause at 7.39. You will see Richo's hand right in the centre of the second 2 on his back.
