Message: A couple of weeks ago, Geelong had a miraculous win against the Hawks. Then after the match we heard from that forumite with as much spine as a worm. He told us all how he backed the Cats and he was as excited as a kid in the biscuit barrell.
After last weeks loss we heard nothing from that person, tufnel. Surprise, surprise, surprise and surprise.
So this thread is designed to get an opinion on the outcome of Geelong games pre match and perhaps he could name his bet strategy for the game. Perhaps. Knowing tufnel he will cut and paste something totally irrelevant like he did today to my Olympic thread. Or maybe he won't appear at all. That is likely.
Tufnel tell the forum, before the game, what will be the outcome of the Cats v Saints in round 21.
Folks, this will be a regular weekly feature for all Geelongs remaining games in 2012. Well it will if I have anything to do with it.
Next week look for the Geelong v Western Bulldogs post and then Geelong v Sydney the week after.
Message: "That's your story too, tufnel. And lostaclue."
More airswings than a 64 handicapper playing out of wet sand in a hailstorm. And who is this new member 'lostaclue' that he's apparently now also waved the white flag at?
I can't speak for others in his imagined cabal of antagonists but seriously fellow members, you have to admit that LHM's contributions are entertainment to the max. He's like a perpetual piņata, although all-day sucker is probably a more apt description.
Please never leave the forum white feather. We'd be lost without you.
Message: Exactly salamander. What a magnificent individual effort at the most crucial time of the most important game of the year. It's there for everybody to see.
As it happened I actually laughed out loud thinking of poor sad stup1d Lost His Marbles.
But he can't let go. Trav hasn't played a minute of top level footy since, but we're supposed to have forgotten this goal ever happened in the meantime. Are we stup1d to have remembered? Not likely. The really stup1d person is the one who expects people to believe what he says just because he said it. Ridiculous.
Nothing more pathetic than an opinionated goose hanging on to his bias for all its worth.
Message: "I see Mackie pulled out last night when the last quarter was tight. It's not the first time... and Varcoe did it every week."
After the 45-odd seconds of super-human, gut-busting, class-personified perfection at about the 8 minute mark of the last quarter of last year's grand final, when things were arguably also a bit "tight", Travis Varcoe can do whatever the hell he likes.

Message: Interesting story I read about J-Pod this morning, it appears his role is more about creating space for the Tomahawk, to allow him more one on one contests. Given the form Tommy is in, not a bad tactic.
I am willing to give Pods the benefit of the doubt.

Message: I don't disagree with some of your points LC. Geelong are nowhere near the team they were last year but this year is the most open in years... They don't have to be as strong as they have been, but, yes, they are up against it, as is any team 5-8..
Message: Marbine, I think Geelong has a few weaknesses. Scarlett is for the first time letting you down. Did you see his disposals last night? I can tell you one thing: he won't be talked out of retirement.
A more persistent weakness is Podsiadly. The number of times he gets his hands on the ball is one thing, holding critical marks is another.
They're all a year older when many were already old enough.
I doubt they will be there Grand Final day, it feels like 2010 all over again. Either Hawthorn or Collingwood will put you away, but good luck to you. I wish you well.

Message: LC lm pretty sure that the top 4 will be hoping that someone has taken care of Geelong by Prelim Final weekend. Nobody wants to play them bar maybe North who may just be too brash to know better..
