    Round 13 Chat About The Other Games

    Watching the Power/Bulldogs game, I'm forming the opinion that the once snarling Bulldogs, have really turned into Shih Tzus.

    Very impressive first half from young Richards. Ludwig would be salivating, I知 sure. He has really nice size about him and his kicking has been fantastic. (And not to mention a magnificent head of hair.)

    Avoiding the swear filter again ...
    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)

    While its harsh on their supporters, I'd be more than happy for their next premiership drought to be as long as their previous one....

    Shaun Burgoyne playing his 350th this round. He is a great player & acknowledge him for this remarkable feat, especially considering Port thought he was finished after 157 games. Talk of him continuing on next year & breaking Adam Goodes record of 372 games for an indigenous player, leaves me in distaste though. During the height of Adam's racist booing all clubs made statements showing their DIRECT support for Adam.....except Hawthorn. I recall Burgoyne & Rioli making a club video against racism in footy but no reference to Adam whatsoever, which I took as deliberate considering Hawthorn's denial their fans were racist with their intense booing of Adam. I also felt Adam would've played on for another year if not hounded out of the game.

    Completely agree. The indigenous players at Hawthorn had a chance to make a stand and make a difference but didn't take it.

    I always remember Bob Murphy taking the coin toss in Adam's #37. This is the one that stands out for me although Bob is not indigenous.

    Yes, Bob Murphy is a classy and thoughtful individual. Hopefully, his commentary career will be successful.
