Title: Hawthorn vs Geelong Preliminary Final
Post by: Mr.Craig on September 13, 2013, 09:04:24 PM
It all comes down to this...

Geelong might need to make a forced change.

They should have to make a forced change.

I think Freo will beat Sydney comfortably to make the Grand Final, but it's this match that is the interesting one. The Kennett Curse to continue?  :-X

As much as I want him to miss, I think chappy should get off. His was much closer to when the player actually kicked it than buddy's, so maybe a careless rating there. A 125 point  penalty down to 93.75 and a reprimand with a guilty plee would be fair I think.

MRP may as well pick numbers out of a hat lol. I thought'd he get 1 down to a reprimand, but I guess getting the same as buddy could be kind of fair... but then there are others that are similar that either got off or got 3+.

I am happy that he's not playing, he has killed us in recent times. I'm going to the game, really looking forward to it and hopefully we get a win! Better time than any to break the curse and I will be very annoyed if we don;t win.

Should be a great game to be at. It's times like this I'm jealous I don't live in Melbourne.

I know why they did the story, but really it's an insult to Geelong to suggest Hawthorn choked a lot of these games.

Personally I don't understand how they rate a game in which we were down by 51 points and only lead once in the entire game as a 10/10 choke  ??? ::)

Anyway I accept stuff like this will keep going on until we eventually beat the Cats.

No Chapman helps 'us'.

Kennett can flower off and his curse will be laid to rest on Friday night.

Hodge to show All Australian selectors he is twice the payer Mackie is.

Hawks by 27.

Meanwhile, way out in the wild west, a nil all draw is on the cards.

Shane Savage on the weekend - 23 kicks, 4 handballs, 10 marks, 7 tackles, 5 goals. 161 DT points.

Thoughts?

Not bad.

But seriously, if Rioli is fit we already have to drop one unlucky player (probably Shiels, Hill or Anderson). Hard to see us making too many changes even though Savage is obviously in great form.

Don't even dare Hawthorn...

No way, Poppy has lifted his game a lot this year. Out of every single team in the competition it is Geelong that we will need his relentless forward and midfield pressure the most. If you read the article they basically guess the title of the article based on the fact that Clarko and our fitness coach were chatting to both of them. Don't knowmwhy they couldn't have just been discussing rotations between the forward line and midfield with each other or combining their pressure in the forward line or which players to target or whatever.

Cannot see it happening, and disappointed if it does eventuate. Think it has to be Hill, Ando or Shiels for Rioli (and Savage VERY unlucky).
Title: Re: Hawthorn vs Geelong Preliminary Final
Post by: Rusty00 on September 18, 2013, 08:55:54 PM
I can't see it happening either as Poppy's form in the last 2 months has been tremendous. Like you said Scrads you'd think it would have to out of Hill, Anderson or Shiels.

Terrible luck for Jed, did not deserve to be dropped but unfortunately when someone like Rioli is out of the team, someone will have to make their way out for him.

Surprised Savage wasn't at least an emergency, but I guess Spangher, Ando and Cheney are just 3 different types of players just so that we can cover all bases.

Get pumped lads, we have been waiting for this moment since before I can remember. It is time 8)

Anyone think Rioli will be sub? Hill seems the obvious choice.

WX the sub, means Shiels will be going to somebody.

Caddy the splats sub, no other changes.

Good luck lads :)

I wasn't much different myself lol, the was in the members and without a doubt one of the best games I've been too if not the best. Was really fearing when we were 20 points behind at 3qt and I thought if geelong got the next goal it could be game over. But Mitchell was inspiration, burgoyne a match winner and hill excellent for the whole second half after a jittery start, and we got over the line. Was among a whole group of hawk supporters and we were all so pumped, couldn't even here the final siren we were cheering so loud when buddy marked in the goal square which turned out to be after the siren.

Hopefully the swans freo game will be very tough and close, our boys will be stuffed after that effort.

Here's Parko now ...

He said Geelong's on-field leaders were found wanting in the dramatic closing stages of the preliminary final last Friday night, which Hawthorn won by five points.

"We have an effective leadership group on the field.

"That's one of the major advantages we have this weekend.

"In fact, Geelong fell apart in the finish last weekend because their leadership group on the ground did not take over and do what that team needed to do, whereas ours did."

it's like they get paid to make 'motivational speech' material for Geelong ...  ::)    ;)

Just watched the game again. No disrespect to Freo but it would have made for an amazing Grand Final.
