Cats by a mile.

Goal review reflects the effectiveness and professionalism of the AFL.

I've never seen a team appeal for so many free kicks.
While that's a criticism of Geelong pussies, it merely feeds into the hands of pathetic umpiring decisions.
It's a circus.
Coming together is the beginning.
Keeping together is progress.
Working together is success.

Any paper over any cracks has been wrenched away.

Well, Teaguey, now you can clearly see just how much work you have to do.
Only our ruthless best, from Board to bootstudders will get us no. 17

Cats are pretenders.
Out in straight sets me thinks.
Finals, then 4 in a row!

We knew that. 6-5 in the last 11 matches with an awful draw in that time is a good effort. We're not top 4 level yet, as we found against the Cats, Tigers and Eagles, but we knew that and something we have to build further towards. Just another step along the journey.

Get a couple of mature bodies over the trade period.

Play Dow, Fisher, LOB in the 2s until - and I mean until - they can dominate at that level.

The three of them are a waste of space in the 1s.

That's not to say they won't become players, but....
Finals, then 4 in a row!

That officially puts an end to the roller coaster that was 2019.

I for one and happy to put that in the rear view mirror and look forward to the upcoming trade period which will have a HUGE say in how our 2020 season will go.

It’s all good guys. We only need a few things to make it work for us next season. Two elite small forwards with x-factor. One elite mid. Cripps, Walsh, Murphy and Curnow can’t carry the squad. One elite rebounding defender with pace and x-factor. A quality Ruckman would help. Plus no windy days. Rain too. No umpires. Players to skill up on kicking between the BIG posts. Yes. The big [email protected] ones. The posts in the [email protected] middle you [email protected] over paid morons. It’s not [email protected] rocket science. No Buddhist monks, seventh day Adventist’s or archbishops in the crowd. Sorry, forgot to mention Donald Trump. Then it will all work out. I will play my role and work on the crowd. Unfortunately the rest is up to the club. I can’t be expected to do everything can I?
This digital world is too much for us insects to understand.

Judicious cuts required.  A fair few we now know will never make it.

We killed us.

Half our team was about as noticeable today as a fart in a jacuzzi.

That was a huge wind, can tell you that living in Geelong. To kick against it again in the 2nd qtr would've demoralised anyone. At least we won the qtr we kicked with it.

Whenever I allow myself to feel confident, a game like that comes along and grounds me. We were never in this game and not sure they were even going flat out.

Their midfield creamed ours when the game was there to be won.

Still have to many young players with question marks for me to be too optimistic about all the talk we will surge up the ladder in 2020. Apart from Walsh not overly confident any of the other kids we have will be genuine a grader.

Miles of work to do and just have to get a big fish in this trade period to get an instant boost come round 1
