||only about eight per cent of neutral football watchers knew of Sam Kerridge’s existence last Sunday morning …||… at least 65 per cent did by Sunday night. No longer 'Sam Who?'|
||the Lions honestly felt it was worthwhile taking the Jonathan Brown case to the tribunal …||… one has to question their smarts.|
||Blues fans start getting excited, as in really excited, about Jarrad Waite …||… just be careful. Let’s hope it doesn’t happen again, but history says caution required.|
||Hawthorn had adopted Collingwood’s hardline stance on chubby players ...
||… it wouldn’t have won the ’08 flag! Stewart Dew looked like he’d eaten a sheep, whole, that entire year and yet without him, Hawks wouldn’t have won.
||the Bombers aren’t wrapping Michael Hurley in cotton wool for September …||… they should be.
||the Dockers can get Pav and Sandi on the same park together this season, and the talk is that they will …||… they’ll be premiership favourites at some stage this year.|
||any young player deserves a break …||… it is Nathan Vardy. Good luck on the return mate.
||people didn’t fully acknowledge the brilliance of the Suns last week when they carved up the Hawks at various stages …||… they should have. Now tracking beautifully in the big picture.|
|Greater Western Sydney
||the Giants aren’t already handing out free tickets for their Round 12 home match against Port Adelaide ...
||... they’d better start. Might be less than 5000.
||you were one of the Hawks fans who gave Buddy the Bronx cheer in the second quarter last Sunday …||… hang your head in shame and have a really good hard look at where you’re at.|
||Melbourne heavies have already made up their minds on Mark Neeld, and some of them have …||… do the right thing at Melbourne’s board meeting and make the call to part company that night. Don’t leave him hanging for your own benefit.
|North Melbourne||North Melbourne loses another game this season by less than a goal …||… what is already extreme embarrassment for this club will turn into disgrace. How To Waste A Season 101.|
||the Power lose to the Dogs this week, and therefore lose a fifth consecutive match …||… every glowing word said and written in the opening five rounds will start being thought of as hot air.|
||Richmond doesn’t start adopting a forward-50 game plan which allows Jack Riewoldt to strut around like the superstar he is …
||… his talent is being wasted. He needs to have the licence to be The Man, and let’s face it, the other plan is not working.
||it wasn’t for Melbourne and North Melbourne ...||… the talk of the town, for the wrong reasons, would have been the Saints. 2-7 after nine. Hmmm.
||anyone in the history of this game deserves a week where nothing but his extraordinary and beautiful footy talent is the focus of his work …||… it is Adam Goodes. Please let that be the case. We can only hope.|
||Josh Kennedy wins the Coleman …||… disregard every single word ever spoken about the need for a goalkicker to have a relaxed and set routine.|
|Western Bulldogs||the Dogs can back up their performance last weekend against the Power on Sunday …||… we’ll be talking. One win doesn’t change perceptions. Two in a row will start that process.|
