What an amazing Q4 – 2016 QF: Geelong v Hawthorn

I haven’t mused about the AFL for a while – I will do so probably soon. But this game has reminded me how intense the sport can be – and as a Geelong supporter, it was amazing. Enjoy – I can sense something good happening over the next three weeks.

AFL 2016 – Round 1 – shock result at the G

I haven’t followed the Cats for a long, long time, namely because of the Essendon saga and all the BS that surrounded it. The Cats were off the boil for the last two seasons and the departure of Stevie J really raised a few eyebrows. The systematic dismantling of a Premiership winning side was lamented…

Geelong’s 2015 Season review.

I am very late to the party. The Grand Final had finished 2 months ago and all the medals have been given out. I have not been following Geelong as closely as I should – last year, the spirit of the game went from me and I was not that interested. Perhaps due to a…

90 years since Cats’ first VFL flag

What Premiership???? Are we in the GF yet??

Last year, I watched and followed the Geelong Football club with great passion. I was watching highlights of every game and we were looking on course for another potential GF, when up popped the Hawks. So be it. I also did very well in the tipping helping a friend come 2nd (or 3rd, I can’t…

AFL The Final Story – 1989 Grand Final – Geelong v. Hawthorn

Congratulations to Hawthorn today on winning the 2013 Premiership. I thought it was a good game, as at one stage in the third quarter, Freo really made a comeback. I am still learning about the game and the history of Geelong and their Premiership tilts. I was not a happy bunny in 2008 and I knew something…
