    They have been very awful in their last 4 final quarters only scoring a total of 2 points. The difference this week though is that they were winning at 3 qtr time. It might have been over confidence or maybe they just aren't fit enough to run out games.

    So I feel aggrieved that they have to play their home game at Richmond's home ground. I guess the AFL dictate this.
    I'm at the match and I'm hoping for a Geelong win. Will be interesting how both teams go in the slippery conditions.

    Watching the tigers live and they give you no time with the ball. They just constantly pressure and tackle.

    Commentators saying Cats v Tigers a high pressure game. Reckon there was a lot more in Swans Eagles Friday night.

    Seems every week Chris Scott pulls the late substitution card. Just saying.
    Hawks did the same yesterday.

    To be fair this week it was because of the weather. They dropped a tall for a small.

    However earlier in the year Dangerfield did write an article that if they knew a player was injured they would wait until just before the game to rule him out so it wouldn't give the opposition an advantage.

    Fortunately for us, Richmond are going to have to host us at our other 'home ground' Thursday week (where we have won something like 15 out of the last 16) and they won't get to extend their 16 win streak at the MCG. Only down side is we don't get to practice playing good oppostion at the MCG. Still, on balance I'll take it.

    Worth remembering it was us that was the last team to beat the Tigers at the MCG so I donít think it holds any fear for the team

    Is it just me that finds is strange referring to Richmond as a good side (possibly more the fact that they are currently good I suppose)
