    Geelong should win tonight.

    I do some causal writing for this website, thought some might be interested.

    Top 7 ‘Surprise Packets’ of Season so far....

    Half the season has gone and haven’t we had some surprise packets? I’ve chosen not to include 2009 draftees in the list but selected a list of players who have burst onto the scene this season and have surprised the footballing public. Here is my list.

    Top 7 ?Surprise Packets? of the AFL Season so far
    With the demonstrated popularity of my article on the Top 7 Surprise packets in the AFL, published online on Saturday June 19, I was caused to ponder what list I should come up with next. I have decided to name some of the top moments of the AFL season 2010 thus far. There is no particular order. As always with these sorts of things, you can’t always fit everything in. Hope you enjoy reading it and please feel free to comment.

    Moments to Remember from the AFL season so far
    Feel free to let me know what you think and if I missed anyone/anything.

    Looks a good forum

    Cool stuff. List of 7 surprises pretty spot on.

    Thanks.

    Shane Edwards is very underated. He has been a huge improver this season for the Tigers.

    The list looks pretty much spot on, but I find it odd that you say you haven't included 2009 draftees when Barlow and jPod are there.
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

    It was meant to be not including 2009 draftees from the National draft but pre-season was fine. I will add that next time around if I do similiar article. Thanks for the feedback.

    If you could do an article on the impact Brad Plain had on football fashion that would be swell thanks.

    Also, needs more James Gwilt. What the hell has happened to this guy? He was captain of the Spuds First 22 last year.

    Oh, and 3 points in a half of footy for the reigning premiers. Lol.

    The Life and Times of a Woman Who Got Dragged to the Football by Some Bloke Who's Probably Rooting Her

    So I went to my first game of footy tonight - it was awesome! I can safely say since about the second quarter I am now a passionate Geelong fan. Everyone was cheering so loudly I just couldn't help but get in on the act. I didn't really know any of the players' names but I thought if I just yelled out stuff really loudly then nobody would notice that I'm a bit of a novice at this. Oh boy, you should have heard me shrieking! I was pulling out all the stops:

    'Get it!'

    'Kick it!'

    'What are you doing?'

    Yeeeeeeeeeeeesssssss!!!

    'You suck Saints!'


    It's hard work, this cheering caper - sometimes I'd be all like 'Yeah! Haha,' and St. Kilda would kick a goal, or I'd be swearing into my drink because I didn't realise that it was our free kick (these were few and far between I might add, how stupid are the umpires! Do they even know the rules?)

    But by the third quarter I was in full swing. I'd even graduated to telling the Saints that 'This is how it's done!' when we did something good, though I'm still not 100% sure what that was, and it was only after someone told me to look at the scoreboard that I realised we were 17 points down.

    And after 1.5 white wines I really came into my own. I just felt that with my experience of the game now, coupled with the fact that Geelong were losing, I was as qualified as anyone else to make critical comments about what they were doing wrong. For example, I saw that #10 from the Saints was all on his own in the midfield, what's going on there!? So I yelled at my boyfriend, 'What's Ten doing all on his own? We need to man up! Somebody get on him!' He told me that Ten was a tagger, which sounds pretty important if they have a name for it, so he really should have been manned up. He wasn't as good as number 29 from Geelong though, he was very good. I think someone should give him an award for being so good.

    If any of my girlfriends ever go to the footy I feel like I could give them some tips on cheering. The most important one is that if you haven't got your own style yet, then you can pretty much just borrow one from the bedroom, e.g. 'Yessss!!!! Yeah!!! Oh, ooooo yeah! Come on!' or just sit there and let the man do all the work. Hey, there's a reason they're both called 'rooting', right? Right? Come to think of it though, the quiet option is probably better, because my BF had a boner for half the night. He's such an embarrassment, lol, I can't even go outdoors with him half the time.

    Man I had so much fun tonight, I really wanted to be able to go again but it sounds like that won't happen. I asked my man when Geelong were playing next and he told me that was their last game for the year, and possibly forever. Lol wtf?! Oh well, footy's kind of lame anyway, I only came because I thought we were going to win.



    (Editor's note: I'd have preferred a symphony of Scotsmen jam a thousand vuvuzelas up my arse and play than have ever listened to this banshee. FMD.)

    Is it sad that Brendon Goddard is just about my favourite player at the moment? Hate myself for it, has one of those faces you just want to punch. But man, what a kick.

    This is almost certainly related to him being captain of my Dream Team every week.

    Or is it one of those chicken-and-egg situations?

    And can anyone recommend a good chiropractor for him?

    Your fans were sticking the boot into Luke Ball after 2 games of football for Collingwood.

    A great man like Bally shouldn't be at such a club.
