Game Chat – Brisbane vs Western Bulldogs

Written by Thommo on August 5 2017

Venue: Yo Gabba GABBA at 4:35pm AEST

R5, 2017, Western Bulldogs 17.20 (122) d Brisbane Lions 14.6 (90) at Etihad Stadium
R5, 2016, Western Bulldogs 17.18 (120) d Brisbane Lions 10.7 (67) at Etihad Stadium
R23, 2015, Brisbane Lions 19.16 (130) d Western Bulldogs 19.8 (122) at the Gabba
R12, 2015, Western Bulldogs 22.14 (146) d Brisbane Lions 11.8 (74) at Etihad Stadium
R12, 2014, Brisbane Lions 14.11 (95) d Western Bulldogs 13.9 (87) at Etihad Stadium

Game notes: After three straight wins, there’s a feeling the Western Bulldogs have started to turn the corner, but if they come to the Gabba expecting an easy four points from the bottom-placed Lions they might be in for a rude shock. The reigning premier has righted its season with victories over Carlton, Gold Coast and Essendon in the past three weeks to find themselves sitting outside the top eight on percentage alone. With Marcus Bontempelli and Jason Johannisen among a host of Bulldogs stars finding their best form, they would expect to beat Chris Fagan’s young Lions. The home team has eyed this game off as one it could win though, resting youngsters Eric Hipwood, Jarrod Berry and Hugh McCluggage from the long trip to Perth last week. The Lions showed earlier this year they could test the Dogs, and their quick ball movement should be a good challenge for the visitors.

Thommo’s Tip: Western Bulldogs by plenty.

    1. Rockliff is the biggest troll. Trade him in at $592k for an average of 72 for 7 long weeks. Finally move him on at $411k for some premium scoring coming into finals. You know, the likes of Z.Merrett. Forked out $180k for 1 extra point last week (an abysmal 67 which I captained) and now Rockliff is on track to beat his 95 this week. Rocky will most likely play next week too whilst I have to park Z.Merrett on the pine courtesy of his gut punch suspension.



      1. On behalf of all the long suffering Rocky owners – thanks Hutta!

        It seems I put the VC on the wrong Bulldog though

    1. Thanks Hutta.

      There is one writer on here who listed a regret for the season for never finding the opportunity to bring in Macrae. Can’t remember who?

      Anyways, I had the same regret…had the trade loaded up on my break at work before the bounce tonight. Macrae was coming in. But even after all the regret of not having him I still refused to hit the confrm button. My other notable non-trade in of the week was Max Gawn.

      They definitely proved me a fool this week!


      New regret of SC17 is definitely not trusting myself more. Finals debutant making some simple mistakes. I’m 31…but I would consider myself a 3rd year rookie in AFL Terms. Drafted with acclaim (haha, go me!) when I was ’18’ and about ’20’ now with a great leadership group coaching me up on this site as I try to earn my stripes.
