    I did not say crappy. I was very careful not to say anything at all..

    This type of report is really appreciated by us interstaters who would love to be there for these games - next week eh?
    Make sure you give Benny an extra big cheer will you. I would imagine it would be a bit of a challenge to head to Crowland again.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the write up. Hopefully someone will give us another next week from Adelaide? Maybe Kurt can provide us with an insider's point of view. I mean, with all his prior experience and all???

    Observations from Blacktown - my story......

    Very disappointed at quite how low the attendance was; is there an official figure?

    We were at Manuka on Friday for the GWS v Essendon game, and they announced an attendance figure of 8,044; respectable for the start of a long weekend when many would be heading out of town. After driving to Sydney yesterday, we caught the train out, and didn't spot anyone obviously heading for the match; in the end there were eight of us on the shuttle bus from Doonside to the ground off that train.

    I suspect there would have been more if this game had been further west; Wagga or Narrandera, for example.

    Yes, thanks for the excellent work Prim & BRC. We looked like a premiership team, or some semblance of one.

    This being RWO I must have a grumble and it's about our fadeouts. I know it's preseason but our indifferent last quarters against the Saints and the Suns are too much like that disappearing act we perfected last year.

    Just watched the replay. We definetly looked much sharper then our previous games. Credit to the training from the boys and the coaches work to get us up to speed after a limited pre season. McVeigh looks in such good nick. I rate him so highly, he doesn't get the credit he deserves outside of our own. Whitey and Everitt have certainly stepped it up. I don't know why Whitey cops it like he does. He doesn't do much wrong IMO, but as soon as one person forms an opinion others follow.
    LRT. Lord Roberts-Thompson. He may look like the Munster, but looks can be deceiving.

    Great write up Primmy. I was at the first round of NAB matches against GWS and Carlton and we definitely looked like a team that was well behind the others in our preparation, but from what I saw of the stream last night we at least bore some resemblance to last year's premiers.

    Was it only Towers, Lloyd and Lambie missing from the game against the Suns from the original list of players for the game ?

    Thank you Aardvark for the replay. The stream was pretty lousy and I missed the whole of the last quarter and most of the second on Saturday night. Very good to see the whole game.

    You're welcome sir. It was good to be able to watch it without it breaking up. You'd think in this day and age we could come up with a better solution.
