    Thank you, gentlemen (giving you both double pistol points forward).

    And coming on midway throught the second at the MCG? Unacceptable, Deuce.

    F**K Collingwood. I'll gladly root for anyone playing against the Magpies.

    While I LOVE the trash talk, whither the hate toward the Magpies, Stat?

    Then again, that was me with Hawthorn and Carlton.

    What cable system doesn't have ESPN Classic?

    And it's GAME ON from the MCG... and Collingwood took all of 24 seconds to score.

    Pushing and shoving before they threw up the ball. This should be a good one.

    It's Collingwood by 6 (26-20) after one quarter.

    One of the most physical/chippy games I've ever seen in my ARF viewing. Collingwood was up 26-6, via two sick goals and piss-poor finishing/transition by St. Kilda. But the Saints put it together toward the end of the period and found that missing finishing link.

    That was one hell of a takedown tackle by Collingwood!

    God I love ARF.

    Kilda is making too many handling mistakes, and Collingwood is massive in the tackle.

    As disconcerting as the new umpires (refs?) uniforms are to us old schoolers, the coaches being tucked away behind the plexiglass with the headphones makes them look like fast food employees working the drive-through.

    Appropriate, because like Beavis and Butt-head, Aussie football is an acquired taste.

    Outside of that Aryan No. 12 dude for St. Kilda, the Saints are getting manhandled. And I get the idea these two don't pretty much care for each other.
