Oh Well! (Round 15 – The Eight Point Game)

“Doesn’t look that worried about the loss, Fev. I don’t like the look of that. Don’t like it at all. You haven’t done much. Haven’t helped the side. You’ve had the loss. That guy there (Chris Judd) has busted his guts. And you are hugging the opposition. Oh well.”

That’s not Half Back Flanker bagging out Carlton full forward Brendan Fevola…we would be far more succinct with a few cuss words thrown in for good measure. Those statements belong to Channel Seven commentator Nathan Buckley, who was clearly unimpressed with the body language emanating from the Fev after St Kilda’s vital win over the Blues last night.

The Saints needed to win this ‘eight point’ game in order to have some control over their finals destiny and they did just that in front of a good crowd at the MCG, not the Docklands as the ABC reported…though they did manage a decent crowd at the Dome as well! Those Catholics sure have a loyal fan base…wonder if they will all get on board with the Sydney Celtics in 2011?

Having won the ‘eight-pointer’, St Kilda sit one win and percentage above Carlton in eighth spot. The Blues still think they are a shot at September but not on last night’s showing…plus they have the Doggies, Hawks and away games in Brisbane and Adelaide to come. Umm…nah!

But quickly back to Fevola – maybe he thinks that slapping your opponent around the head unnecessarily a few times is the type of action that warrants a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract. But nobody at Carlton or Sydney or anywhere else he is supposedly wanted, would agreee with him…unless he has the same agent as Andrew Bogut!

But with Carlton playing Sydney next Sunday – perhaps the winner can have the four points and the loser can overpay Fev for three years of occassional joy and chronic frustration! Sounds fair.

Here is a look ahead at the remaining games for The Eight Point Game round:

SATURDAY

With eight points on the line, expect to see a fast-paced contest between these two teams this afternoon!

MCG, Melbourne – 2:10pm (local): Collingwood v Adelaide (FOX)

Don’t the Cats fans love beating Freo! Might be a bit cold for it though…

Skilled Stadium, Geelong – 2:10pm (local): Geelong v Fremantle (TEN)

Sorry Bomber fans…you won’t see Hirdy in red and black or fluoro yellow any time soon!

Telstra Dome, Melbourne – 7:10pm (local): Essendon v Brisbane (TEN)

Chances of a repeat of last year’s prelim final flogging? Hmm, not great.

AAMI Stadium, Adelaide – 7:10pm (local): Port Adelaide v North Melbourne (FOX)

SUNDAY

Will Spida Everitt take over as Sydney’s biggest nutjob with Barry Hall out?

MCG, Melbourne – 1:10pm (local): Hawthorn v Sydney (FOX)

Things didn’t go so well for Melbourne the last time they faced the Dogs!

Telstra Dome, Melbourne – 2:10pm (local): Western Bulldogs v Melbourne (SEVEN)

A few flying high shots would certainly help Richmond’s cause…

Subiaco, Perth – 2:40pm (local): West Coast v Richmond (FOX)

  1. Fairly boring weekend round 15 was?

    The best and biggest news was Buckley trying to steal some limelight and Solomons hit!
