    It was there....as was the last free they got. Besides, an even more ordinary decision before the Lions one put North in front. The result was fair.

    Despite the Cats being on top all season, I actually don't think that at any time they've looked like a likely premiership team. Their form over the last few weeks is no surprise to me.....

    I'm not a huge lover of St.Kilda at all but am enjoying watching them put a big dent in the Bulldog's finals hopes!

    It is interesting how all three teams who have ditched their coach have immediately performed better. In all cases it did seem before the sackings as though they'd stopped playing for their respective coaches and that appears to have the case.

    Yes exactly.....I was there that night and went home thinking that the Cats performance didn't reflect their ladder position at all.....and I was quite satisfied with our performance and trajectory. That's what makes the last three weeks so disappointing.

    I loved watching the Melbourne v West Coast match in Alice Springs. With the beautiful red background of the MacDonnell Ranges and the enthusiastic crowd hanging over the fence, predominantly it seemed indigenous supporters of the two clubs, it was like a high quality country match.

    Both teams wore their indigenous jumpers and the indigenous players from both teams came together at the end. I particularly liked the embrace and swap of jumpers by Neville and Lewis Jetta.

    I was a bit puzzled when these AS & Darwin matches first started but I now think they are great.

    I think it's because a coach under pressure employs a more defensive game plan, because an offensive, daring style can lead to a 100 point loss which equals instant dismissal.

    Thanks for this, Like Paul Kelly (singer) I was born in The Alice ... listen to “A bastard from the bush.”
    They would love these games. A huge event.
