    The Alex Docherty Column - "Free Kick Bulldogs" is a Myth - The Mongrel Punt

    Written by a dogs supporter no less.
    His use of stats at the beginning, was a bit like saying that if you ignore the signs, then 10 + 5 and 10 - 5 are really much the same thing.

    Poodles going for a positive free kick differential for the 10th final in a row tonight!

    What are the chances they'll succeed?

    If there was a bookmakers market on it, they'd be at $1.01!

    The umpires had an easy weekend. One might say they put away the whistle for big games, but in reality they didn't have to make a lot of decisions given the lack of competitiveness by 2 teams.

    Lord. I’d love to see what’s in the photo montage of Gil that’s in his phone.
    'Delicious' is a fun word to say

    They lost the free kick count against Port.

    Possibly something like the 3D embodiment of a Frankie Boyle monologue?

    Of course, after typing "Frankie Boyle monologue", I did google, Frankie Boyle monologue, to see what obscenity was the top result. It's this one!

    They were well and truly due to lose a free kick count in a final. I have to admit they were just way too good for Port but I'd be very concerned about umpire puppy love if I was a Demon supporter!

    (Time to start the "Other Games" thread please, deja? Even though our Bloods aren't involved, I'm right into this GF! I've a lot of great friends who are long suffering Demon supporters and I dearly want to see Melbourne smash the Poodles!)
