Great To See Ya…But Just Take Your Friends And Piss Off! (Round Seven – Welcome Back!)

Do you think that Juddy would be upset with guys like this booing him?

You know how Chris Judd used to play for the Eagles, right? And now he’s at Carlton…who played in Perth last night? Of course you do…it’s all anybody talked about this week. And the biggest talking point was how the crowd would react when the once beloved Chris Judd ran out in front of the Eagles faithful wearing navy blue for the first time!

So…what was the reaction like when Judd first ran out onto Subiaco? No freakin’ idea! Wanna know why? Because Channel Seven thought it would be a really awesome idea to have the opening credit pump-up music still playing at that exact moment…while Bruce McAvaney talked over it the whole time…AND YOU COULDN”T HEAR A FREAKIN’ THING!!! No, really…great job!

At least Dennis Cometti came up with a decent line when Judd earned an early free kick inside 50 – “To boo or not to boo – that is your answer!” But if you thought the footy broadcasters had a shocker early, they were not as bad as the Eagles – they stunk up the joint in the first half and copped the biggest round of boos from the fans as they left the ground at half time.

Ask me one stupid queston. Just one. Go on…I dare ya!

Amazingly, the Eagles recovered from 53 points down to be just seven point behind midway through the final quarter before Carlton finished them off. It ended a great night for a young Carlton team who have not won many games at all in recent times but now have three wins from their past four starts, including this one in Perth.

But what a nightmare season for West Coast – from premiers in 2006 to flogged by Carlton at home in the space of eighteen months and pretty much no hope of finals after round seven! What the hell happened? And doesn’t this rapid change in fortunes make Juddy look like a football genius!!!
