Game Chat – Geelong vs Adelaide

Written by Thommo on June 2 2017

Venue: Simonds Stadium at 7:50pm AEST

LAST FIVE MEETINGS
R18, 2016, Geelong 12.13 (85) d Adelaide 7.13 (55) at Simonds Stadium
R8, 2016, Geelong 13.20 (98) d Adelaide 11.6 (72) at Adelaide Oval

R17, 2013, Adelaide 14.10 (94) d Geelong 14.8 (92) at AAMI Stadium

Game notes: After a three-week hiccup, the Cats have steadied the ship over the past fortnight and have seen off the Western Bulldogs and Port Adelaide to climb back to third on the ladder after falling to fifth. Their two-point win over the Power came in thrilling circumstances with Patrick Dangerfield kicking the sealer with 90 seconds remaining after some Joel Selwood heroics. Meanwhile, the Crows have also won two on the trot after dropping games to North Melbourne and Melbourne. Since then, they’ve made a mess of the Brisbane Lions and Fremantle, with Andy Otten the hero on Saturday night with four goals against the Dockers in the wet that helped ascertain the Crows as ladder leaders by percentage from Greater Western Sydney. Both teams have player milestones to celebrate, with Tom Hawkins scheduled for his 200th game and Josh Jenkins his 100th, in what will be the Cats’ third straight game at their revamped home fortress.

Thommo’s Tip: Geelong by 18 points.

  1. Dear Parsons,

    Have a look at Connor Menadue last year. Had a 5 round average 44 before a 130 points in his first game in the byes. You have a 5 round average of 43. Take note and replicate.

    Kind Regards,
    35,000 coaches.

  5. Joel Selwood landed awkwardly in a contest and slammed his head into the turf. Jogged off with a cut to the side of his head. Awaiting further details……

  7. Adelaide can’t win the flag this year unless
    (A) they find a way to free up Sloane from a tag, or
    (B) the other mids get a LOT better

  8. J Selwood and P Dangerfield currently the best duo in the AFL by far. Averaging a combined 153.67 Supercoach Points in the 1st half for the past 3 weeks.

    Would have to be one of the best duo’s of all time alongside:
    Norm Peterson and Cliff Clavin, Scooby Doo and Shaggy, SpongeBob Squarepants and Patrick Star, Sonny and Cher, Hall and Oates, RD2 and C3P0, Jerry Seinfeld and George Costanza, Batman and Robin and Homer and Marge Simpson.

  12. I think what people forgot to take into account when writing off S.Selwood as a trade in is (like his brother) plays very well at Simmonds. Given that all of Geelong’s games there are in the 2nd half of the season due to new grandstand, you can expect more games like this from them

    1. I didn’t get home from work til half time but looks like he spent a bit of time locking down Betts. Scored about half of his DT points in the last quarter just junking it up which is not highly awarded in SC.

    1. Not sure why the thumbs down, pretty good trade for less than $100k if you’ve locked up the top 3-4 already.

        1. Either way, my magical words turned it from 1-3 to 9-3 😛

          Perfect timing for Laird! Really was a win-win situation for everyone now though, much like Lloyd. Those who start were reward with points, those who didn’t get them for cheap!

    1. Now had scores of 107, 72 and 72. 83 average not a bad F7 for the short term (i.e. Sandi misses a week, swing Nank to rucks) but I will be looking for someone else come the later rounds.

      $80k price rise this week so if he can rocket up to $35o-$400k as fast as Newman did, he could be a very nice upgrade to someone like JJK after he’s come back and dropped after 2 weeks.

    1. Mate, we hardly scrambled 18 players so if you have that luxury well done. but still Only the 18 best will count. Lets say I am glad to take the 56 from Parsons
