The season, part two, got off with a real fizz.What a shocker.ten goals for the game.Like so many others, I thought shorter quarters making a difference already.
In the game Thursday night the viewing public were robbed of about 30/35 minutes of football.Even after watching the rest of the games, shortened quarters are not for me.
But after the opening debacle, along comes Geelong and Hawks. They kick nine goals between them in a pretty good start.But Geelong ran over the Hawks.
Melbourne sneak a win after Carlton had many chances to win,Maybe the same ole same ole for Carlton.Harley Bennell got through unscatheded.If he stands up, will be real value for the Dees.
The Suns young ones scorched the Eagles wings in an upset of the highest order.I guess the Hub is not for the Eagles.
Power smashed the Crows.
One of the flag favourites the Giants went down to the Roos.Another surprise.
Bombers hung on to defeat Sydney in an arm wrestle.
And last of all in what was an entertaining game early, The Saints smashed the Doggies.The Saints played some very good fast running football.
A lucky break for Hawthorns Sean Burgoyne, only getting as fine for a dangerous sling tackle on Dangerfield.
Jeremy McGovern lucky to only have a weeks suspension after punching Alex Sexton in retaliation for a head high hit.Maybe should have copped a second week for pushing Sexton into the fence shortly after.
29 = 353.
Improver one,Taylin Duman.
Improver two, Brett Bewley.
Smokey, Tobe Watson.
