    Must've been pretty bad weather in Adelaide tonight - West Adelaide beat Port Adelaide 22 to 15.

    Why would they care? They pretty much can't move out of 2nd place, they were playing for nothing tonight. Get the job done, get off the field, and keep tapering towards the finals. I'm not expecting Collingwood to be particularly excited tomorrow night against Adelaide either.

    If you ignored the age difference and just had to pick a player to be in your team this year, who would you choose out of Paul Chapman and Gary Ablett? Obviously most will say Ablett, but I don't think it's as completely a ridiculous question.

    It's not - Chapman. Have been saying the same thing myself for a large part this year. Doesn't matter which team, who you've got, where you sit; Chapman is the man for all occasions.

    Not saying its wrong. It just sounds funny, especially considering how every win for my team means so much and you can hear it when Richmond sing the song.

    I like the look of Troy Taylor, could be a good player if he stops bashing people up.

    And so, the race to the Coleman Medal is over. If you asked me last year what price I'd give you on Jack Riewoldt ever winning, I'd have told you squillions.

    Yeah, puzzling logic because:

    a) It was pretty convincing from where I was sitting, despite the fact Geelong didn't play their best, and;
    b) If you win by 1 point it's not convincing but you still sing the **** out of the song.

    They've sung it like that a few times this year. IMO It's a combination of:

    • Being used to winning
    • Trying to keep a lid on it
    • The fact everyone expects them to win anyway

    Did any of you ****s see umpire Stuart Wenn go up to Connors and (whilst physically touching) tell him to stop elbowing his opponent and that he was out of his league, or something like that? Thought it was so disgraceful. He should be stood down for the rest of the year, absolutely no question. The AFL go on about trying to increase the respect between players and umpires, but it's a two way street.

    Despite the fact he was right re: Connors being out of his league

    It wasn't a convincing win with Carlton in it for most of the game and it's a win that probably puts up more questions then answers, not to mention the reports and injuries. I don't buy the used to winning line either because honestly they they haven't beaten us since 2008 (as well as the revenge that comes into play there) although the second point is feasible. The "barley giving a ****" is rubbish though.
