Game Chat – Geelong vs Western Bulldogs

Written by Thommo on May 19 2017

Venue: Simonds Stadium at 7:50pm AEST


R19, 2016, Geelong 16.7 (103) d Western Bulldogs 11.12 (78) at Simonds Stadium
R13, 2016, Geelong 16.4 (100) d Western Bulldogs 5.13 (43) at Etihad Stadium
R16, 2015, Geelong 10.12 (72) d Western Bulldogs 9.10 (64) at Simonds Stadium
R16, 2014, Geelong 10.9 (69) d Western Bulldogs 7.14 (56) at Simonds Stadium
R5, 2013, Geelong 15.17 (107) d Western Bulldogs 13.8 (86) at Etihad Stadium

Game notes: The Bulldogs are likely to start favourites against a Geelong side off the boil, but the visitors will need to snap a 10-game losing streak against the Cats since 2009 if they’re to claim the four points. Another glaring stat is the Dogs haven’t won at the Cattery since 2003. Whether playing for Adelaide or Geelong, Patrick Dangerfield has been a constant thorn in the Dogs’ side, and limiting the Brownlow medallist’s impact will be central in Luke Beveridge’s planning. Something else that would be worrying the premiership coach is his side’s ongoing inability to put a decent score on the board from an adequate amount of inside 50s. Chris Scott on the other hand, was furious with the Cats’ paltry 13 first-half tackles in the loss to Essendon last week, so expect a fired up home side looking for redemption.

Thommo’s Tip: Geelong by 10 points.

While we do our best to update posts with end of quarter scores, we aren’t always online so if you have access to the scores and see they haven’t gone into the Comments section of this post, the Community would love it if you could help us out.

      1. Now you mention it I am sure the community would do everything in their powers to keep it as even as possible 😛


  2. any reason to VC Danger instead of Bont when Danger has a 3 game average of 95 while Bont has a 3 game average of 122?


  3. Call me silly, but I’ve bypassed the Bont and Danger as my VC options and taken a punt on Selwood tonight. 3 poor games in a row and the first game at SS for the year. Have a feeling he is in for a big contested night.


    1. I too, have slammed the (VC) on J.Selwood.

      He is also my latest recuit and I laugh in the face of his 150 BE.


          1. He’s building. Think Danger got off to too much of a flyer to catch. Not too displeased with the finish of Selwood though. Was always happy to cop a small price drop to lock him in this week.


      1. Wallis 133 Macrae 87. Take 16 off for Wallis’s 2 goals is still 117. Wallis’s return is going to affect Macrae’s scores. I have Macrae and I can’t understand the thumbs down. They play very silmilar games.


  4. Because you said Please Belly.

  5. Danger heading for 200 here

    I know Beveridge doesn’t believe in tagging, but he has to do something


  6. lads surely this can’t be right.. apparently 8 so called “SuperCoaches” traded out Danger for the Bont this round.. if that’s true, that is astonishing and just plain stupid..


  7. Of course went and decided that in spite of all the historical data telling me to do the complete opposite, I was going to give the VC to Bontempelli over Dangerfield…


      1. Are you sure you don’t have me confused with somebody else? I certainly don’t take pleasure in others’ misfortunes. Keep in mind that there is more than one Jack on here.

        I do sometimes make the odd tongue-in-cheek post, but it is never intended to be offensive to anybody. Hell, half the time it is directed at myself!


        1. No worries Jack i just remember someone calling a Jack to stop being a Campainer for sticking it to people if they had Captained a player that had underperformed.

          Bad Luck is Bad Luck that is all and i like to see people do well rather than be happy that things haven’t worked out how they planned.

          Anyway All Good and hope you nail your other Captain’s choice.


          1. I know exactly the Jack comment TDA but I’ve noticed about 4 people called Jack all with different email/isp addresses on SCT so benefit of the doubt on this.

            The amount of times I’ve double taked on the trades thread going, wait, but you already have him? Is ridiculous.


              1. No problems, TDA. No hard feelings 🙂

                If either you or Huttabito has the link to the post in question I’ll be happy to confirm whether it was mine or not. I doubt it would have been, because I don’t tend to disparage other people’s captaincy choices etc. I do sometimes express relief that I haven’t made some particular decision myself, but those posts tend to be focused on my own fortunes (good or bad), rather than putting other people down.

                If anything, this is yet another reason why I need to come up with a more unique alias. I certainly don’t want people confusing me with Dodgy Jack!


  8. Last minute change to put the VC on Dangerfield from JPK.
    Just figured he was due and also reckoned that the swans were overrated after last weeks performance against North who were really just witches hats in the middle.
    Very very happy – just hope something doesn’t go wrong in the second half.

      1. Smart pickup Hutta! I was worried Mitch might take a couple of games to get back to speed, but he’s been great


        1. Grabbed him after his 30+ disposal first VFL game back. At the time was a way better prospect so decided to jump straight on. Been warming my bench a few weeks but worth it now. Even threw him on the field for Lynch (Adel).


      2. Yeah nah don’t think he’ll pull those scores every week Hutta so u can keep him! (Well, he better not anyway)

    1. When Bulldogs don’t run a recognisrd ruckman half the time it’s always going to happen. Hell, they had Jong at the centre bounce a fortnight ago.


  14. If anybody took the C/VC from Danger or Selwood for this round, then you haven’t been paying attention
