    I feel dumber for having read this. Mark Stevens can add his name to my list of part-time footy journalists, full-time inane dribblers.

    Footy's ok again, best game I've seen from North in a while. Next Geelong anyone? Side starting to look very similar in make-up; tough yet skilled mids, dangerous mid-sized fowards and good backmen who damage on the rebound. Would've beat Carlton by 10 goals with Petrie up forward, exciting times.

    Mark Jamar sold his soul to the devil for talent, must've.

    fmd, what a painful display from the Pies yesterday. To take nothing away from Melbourne, who are obviously a helluva a lot better than they were last year, and deserved to win given how we played, that was embarressing. I don't generally turn on the boys when they don't win, but jeez I was pissed off watching after quarter time, and pretty disappointed with what's going on. We certainly didn't deserve the two points based on how we played after quarter time yesterday. How the **** Jolly and Fraser, rucking in tandem, let themselves get so comprehensively pantsed by Jamar is beyond me - including the times when Jamar was actually having a breather on the bench and freakin' Aaron Davey or someone was rucking. Travis Cloke played a decent game but unfortunately, given he's our key 'forward', he played it on the wing. Leon Davis, oh so unusually, stunk up the 'G. Thank god we had Dane Swann, Brad Dick and Dale Thomas yesterday. Great to see Ben Reid get the Rising Star nod as well - recognition for what's becoming his breakout year.

    I think the bye is coming at a really good time for us, given we've lost three matches in the last month . Hopefully Malthouse and the boys might decide that their brilliant new strategy of playing without a visible forward line and compiling scores 1 point at a time should be dumped in favour of how we were playing a couple of months ago.

    The following is a list of players who I would not shed a tear if they never played another game for the Pies:

    - you've been a ruckman in the AFL system for 13 years, and you still can't take a centre bounce without falling on your ass 9 times out of 10. Or mark up.


    - learn to show up in big games ****. Had one awesome year, but has reverted to being a hack this year.

    At least we should have Maxwell, Didak, Ball and Dawes back for the match against Sydney in a couple of weeks.

    Bulldogs game was more important than the Melbourne one, and he won you that.

    2009 aside, one of his problems has been that he's rarely had any middle ground. He's either been great, or he's had absolute horrors. He's not fit enough to play in the midfield like he has been in the last couple of years, and he's actually not much good as a small goal sneak when there are numbers back.

    I'm not turning on him after just one poor game. He was worst afield in a losing GF, he's gone to water in successive finals campaigns in more recent years, and last trade period, I wanted him gone.

    Haha 2002 GF. 0 touches yeah?

    Ah well, still rate Davis. Think teams need players like him. Brad Dick couldn't do what Davis did against the Dogs.

    Also just found out Hardwick was the one who sent the runner to tell Jack Riewoldt not to do any media, and then apologised on Monday.

    Fair enough.

    Just saw the highlights on Fox.

    Bloody hell, three of Franklin's goals were brilliant. That one from 55 on the boundary line, wrong side for a left footer was ridiculous.

    Hawthorn are serious.

    How good does that make North Melbourne seeing as though we beat them?

    Thought it was going to be a video of him glassing his girlfriend. Disappointed.

    Low blow, ****.

    I can take the hits, but leave Sir Wayne Carey out of this!

    Getting emotional watching some North Melbourne video here.
