    Round 2 (the Buddy beauty round): the other games.

    While most of us will be obsessing over how Buddy goes on Saturday, there are other games, starting off tonight with Collingwood v Carlton. Collingwood are very slight favourites, but I think that Carlton should be favourites, as they were still in with a chance, until very late, against Richmond; while Collingwood never really looked like beating the Bulldogs.

    Tomorrow night will see one of the premiership favourites, either Geelong or Brisbane, get into a bit of trouble, by going 0-2. Assuming that it's not a draw.

    A couple of the Sunday games look they could be good contests: Bulldogs v Eagles and Dockers v Giants.

    Carlton have another year of mediocrity ahead of them.

    I'd be surprised if Teague lasts the season.

    Ninth season in a row where Carlton have started 0-2 or worse. Staggering.

    Staggering, yes. Highly enjoyable? Absolutely!! Never forget how Carlton hovered over us and waited for us to die in the 90s. May they forever dwell near the foot of the ladder.

    They've possibly never fully recovered from the presidency of John Elliott. Left almost twenty years ago, with the club facing a range of sanctions and their reputation in tatters, and haven't been a genuine premiership contender since then.

    I did the stupid thing and tipped them in the footy tips, grrrr

    One can only hope their mediocrity continues now this season

    Fascinating game tonight, at the cattery but Cats have significant outs, another tipping nightmare for me

    Certainly a good chance it's his last, if they continue like this.

    Watched the game against my better judgement. Same old every season. A couple of nice goals at least.

    More hopeful for tonight's game, we'll see if the Lions can bounce back.

    But most excited about Saturday of course, when I'll be at the SCG for the first time since the end of season 2019. Can't wait.

    +1. So true.
    I still love the fact that my kids view the Swans as a perennially successful club and the Blues as perennial cellar-dwellers. How the wheel has turned.
    My opinion is objective truth in its purest form

    Yep @@@@ the blues lol. Long may they be mediocre - either really really @@@@e, or just mediocre enough to think they will finally get somewhere, but then invariably (and often hilariously) go nowhere.... they deserve all they get for their kicking of us when we were down in the 90s, and planning to divide up our carcass.
    "You get the feeling that like Monty Python's Black Knight, the Swans would regard amputation as merely a flesh wound."

    Great to see RWOers maintaining the rage!!

    For anyone under the age of 30 who might not be aware of the situation, read this:

    On This Day: Swans survive.... Just

    I think this article slightly underplays Carlton's role in our near demise. Let's hope they continue to fail - they deserve to!
