Game Chat – Geelong vs Sydney

Venue: Simonds Stadium, Friday, August 4, 7.50pm AEST

R11, 2014, Sydney 22.16 (148) d Geelong 5.8 (38) at the SCG

 

Game Notes:  The Cats are second on the ladder with 12 wins; one full game behind top-placed Adelaide after the Crows’ draw with Collingwood on Sunday. They comfortably accounted for a tired Carlton outfit on Saturday night by 65 points, which was their fourth win in six games. The victory was spearheaded by Tom Hawkins’ six goals, but came at a cost with Brownlow medallist Patrick Dangerfield suspended for a week for his tackle on Matthew Kreuzer. Meanwhile, the Swans are sixth and atop the logjam of teams on eight wins that extends down to the Western Bulldogs in ninth. Their charge to September that included seven straight wins and 10 since round seven hit a bump on Friday night when they lost a thriller to Hawthorn at the MCG. Josh Kennedy was subdued in the loss and is in doubt with a hamstring problem, but Lance Franklin is available after he escaped suspension for his run-in with ex-teammate Luke Hodge.

 

Schwarz’s Tip:  Sydney by 2 points

  1. So after much tinkering and endless research…….

    I’m trading Josh P Kennedy for…….

    Josh J Kennedy!

    Leaves me with 2 trades and $180k to play with.

    Bench cover is very thin so fingers crossed for no late outs!

  2. GOOD NEWS!
    Late change in the commentary box – Brian Taylor is unwell and won’t be calling tonight (or roaming)………

    1. Best News i have heard all day considering i have come down with a cold myself. There should be some actual commentary of the play tonight rather than what the boundary umpire is doing etc.

  3. I dumped Danger in an attempt to advance in Finals. (Trust me, I could go on forever as to why it makes sense for the situation my team is in).

    T/U – That type of $ making move makes sense for me too!
    T/D – Yo, bozo! You’ll regret it. Typical Final-Rookie mistake, trading out the #1 Ranked Player.

  6. The commentators still squeal when Buddy kicks a goal but seriously how long
    has it been since he was an elite rather than just a good player?

      1. Fair call Dermot , perhaps I should have said I don’t think he is a superstar
        anymore but one of a group of 6-8 good forwards nowadays.

  7. Joel Selwood took a few hits tonight and has been rested in the last qtr. Should get up for the game against Richmond next week. Didn’t see it but Duncan will be looked at by MRP during the week (hit Papley in the chest apparently)…….

  9. Loopholed Lloyd tonight in mids , should have loopholed Buddy in fwds.
    Been a fan of Buddy for a while but he is crap at the moment.

  10. Not a great game or great start for some of the popular SC players. Have Lloyd on the bench but i think i will whack Greenwood on the field rather than take his 59.

    Gutsy effort by Selwood to come back on and save a disaster going from 37 at half time to 83 when he went off with 5 Free kicks for helping his score.

    On a side note tossed up between Beams and Parker for JPK and went with Beams.

  11. Sydney just have geelongs number. Not enough pressure and detirmination from geelong. Bottom 10 players are no where near premiership quality. Ive also been saying for years that Chris scott is a bang average coach and he proved that again tonight. His a good team builder but when it comes to tactics the bloke has no idea. All he seems to talk about is being “optimistic”. Hurts to say but no selwood and danger no geelong 🙁
