Well…Maybe The Saints Are Crap After All! (Round Eight – The Great Letdown)

We suck, we suck, we suck, we suck, we suck…AAAHHHHHHHH!!!

Perhaps it was a touch fitting that St Kilda and Collingwood opened proceedings for The Great Letdown last night. The Pies were one kick away from a grand final last year but have not looked as impressive so far this season. The Saints have held high expectations for a number of years now but the results have not lived up to them. So one set of supporters were bound to be left heavily deflated after this game.

And that award goes to the Saints fans. Sure, they threatened to take the lead after falling behind in the third quarter but again could not convert numerous goal opportunities. With Riewoldt out and Fraser Gehrig playing like he should have stayed retired, they seem to be relying on Stephen Milne kicking you seven goals every week in order to win. That can’t be good…

Maybe those panic merchants who hit the roof when St Kilda lost their first game for the year in round three were spot on. But well done to Collingwood who leap over St Kilda on the ladder, though only by percentage. And what a great way to celebrate a significant milestone for…some dude who plays for them.

200 games. CONGRATULATIONS…um…YOU!
