Remember This Guy? (Round Twelve – Pass Or Fail?)

Wow, that looks like the type of thing Matthew Lloyd used to do…oh wait, that IS Matthew Lloyd!

Well, one of them had to win. Two teams that have clearly failed this season faced off in the first game of Pass Or Fail round and it was Essendon who finally took off the dunce’s cap to earn just their third win of the year. And look who finally stood up…

Skipper Matthew Lloyd has struggled all season to have any sort of impact and copped a frightful bagging all week. So, sure enough, Lloyd responded by showing the way with a solid all-round game…including a fine mark and goal at a vital stage of the final term.

While Lloyd may have been faced with an Eagles defence filled with rookies and a clearly injured Darren Glass, it showed what a little room to move and some decent ball delivery can do for a forward. David Hille, on the other, was matched up against Dean Cox and clearly out-pointed the best ruckman in the game!

Hille was so good that those Adam Ramanauskas fans wearing bridal gowns must have been tempted to remove his name from the wedding proposal sign and replace it with Hille’s! Besides, Rama is already married…otherwise he would have totally been up for getting hitched to three strangers at the Telstra Dome!

Sorry Rama…but we’ve changed our minds. Can we all marry the big ruckman instead???

Here is the rundown for the remaining games as we find out who will Pass Or Fail this weekend:

SATURDAY

Will Minson passed his high school Music Performance exam with flying colours by busting out the Bulldogs theme song!

MCG, Melbourne – 2:10pm (local): Western Bulldogs v Brisbane (FOX)

You only need one letter to aptly describe Fremantle’s season…F!

Subiaco, Perth – 2:10pm (local): Fremantle v North Melbourne (FOX)

St Kilda passed the ultimate test way back in 1966 but since then…

SCG, Sydney – 7:10pm (local): Sydney v St Kilda (FOX)

Year 12 exams would be a breeze compared to one of Neil Craig’s training sessions!

AAMI Stadium, Adelaide – 7:10pm (local): Adelaide v Hawthorn (TEN)

SUNDAY

The Cats celebrated like it was Schoolies Week after flogging the Power!

Skilled Stadium, Geelong – 1:10pm (local): Geelong v Port Adelaide (FOX)

Tim Lane reckons that only winning two flags means Mick Malthouse is a failure. No wonder Mick looks bemused…

MCG, Melbourne – 2:10pm (local): Collingwood v Carlton (SEVEN)

  • MAGPIES – PASS OR FAIL? Started slowly but that thumping of Geelong has brought the Pies to life…which is great for all their supporters, shithouse for the rest of us! PASS!
  • The Magpies reckon they have learned their lesson from the last time they played Carlton…which sounds suspiciously like ‘ we didn’t take them seriously because they were a shit team’!
  • Eddie McGuire tells his blockbuster-fatigued coach that he’d better get used to it…maybe Mick can talk to Eddie about that whole overstaying-your-welcome thing!
  • BLUES – PASS OR FAIL? Looked ready to stockpile more early draft picks after three rounds but have gone 5-3 since then. Are we getting a bit carried away or could they really qualify for September? PASS!
  • Brett Ratten calls Mark Williams a sore loser after he accused the Blues of using their cash-cow Dick Pratt to get whatever they want…a) Choco said that three days BEFORE the loss to Carlton, and b) sounds pretty accurate to us!
  • Matthew Kreuzer starred in Carlton’s comeback victory…proving that losing games can be very profitable. And you can’t blame Carlton for doing it either…that’s the AFL for you!

Honestly, would you let your children learn anything from Richmond players given their history of failure?

Telstra Dome, Melbourne – 4:40pm (local): Richmond v Melbourne (FOX)
