Free difference unbelievable but didn't feel that way at the game. Our pressure game was brilliant. Happy with that one

Good win, headed and kicked back.

Anyone else gulp when Frampton has the ball?

Richmond challenged in that last quarter but butchered some inside 50s, the Crows stood up well to maintain their lead.

Rachele is a gun, so clean and balanced. Himmelberg was good again too and even though he didn't get much of the footy today I like the look of Gollant, both of those guys are a good foil for Walker.


Surely Melbourne smash the Giants tonight.

Yes Richmond went in to hurt. Umps should have paid a number of marks instead of frees.

Agree on all of that. Despite a couple of bad blunders I thought Frampton played well enough. Crouch won more hard balls today than I have seen him do before. Cotchin's fist half was excellent but he had no influence after half time.

Ben Keays just goes at 100% 100% of the time. A bloke who has got there with shear hard work.

Using Dawson as a defender was interesting and I thought he went well. Easily Smiths best game for the year,

Very good turnout by the Richmond supporters. With Martin back (if he ever plays again) would make a huge difference.

As an impartial, that was embarrassing. There would've been 10-12 frees that I would've considered dodgy and nearly all went Adelaide's way.

But that's life of the AFL these days. If you play home, you tend to get the rub of the green. Go with it and enjoy it. Doesn't mean you are any good though.

Richmond went hard. They meant to hurt. When they were out of the contest they ploughed in.

There was nothing like 12 frees that were not there. Over umpired? Yes. Consistent? Very.

I had the Crows with 4 wins tops for the season, reckon they could end up with 5 or 6 now

When they flicked the switch in the 3rd and kicked 8 in a row (I think it was) they were just next level.

I can’t recall a side that that can consistently go to that next level in a game and hold it the foot down for such a long period. Seen other sides flicks with but not sustain it like the Dees do with their back half run and Fed 50 pressure to create turnovers.
Let that be a lesson to you Port, no one beats the Bays five times in a row in a GF and gets away with it!!!

Really should be 4 wins now

Still no good though (no sarcasm intended)

I doubt it, their backline is way too slow

Robbie Tarrant is cooked


Just watching the "Round so far" on the AFL site and they reckon he had 10 kicked on him and looked every inch a tired 33 year old. That's well done to burnt.
