    Just spoil the movie for those that haven't seen it all!!!
    And yes the Dark Side reference is correct. Let's hope that never happens!!

    Not sure about this. Watched both hawks & cats games over the weekend and whilst we were certainly not very clean for the first 1 and a bit qtrs we weren't much different to Geelong against Richmond who coughed it up time and again in the second half. If it wasn't for Richmonds total ineptness in the first half, Geelong would have lost this game. Hawthorn on the other hand looked pretty slick but you can do that when you have no opposition. In short I don't think the opposition are that far ahead of us in the slickness stakes. I thought we looked pretty good in the second half against Brisbane

    Not this time. From Verdi's "The Fourthes of Destiny."
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    May the Fourth (force) be with you. That's the reference to star wars
