    Yeah I have my money on a Goddard/Hodge tie at the moment.

    Roughie.. Brian Lake. Or has he been suspended?

    I just hope it doesn't go to Dane Swan, Mr 100% uncontested, 1-2 touches.

    Out of those sides, only Freo would worry me LESS than the Pies.

    Hawthorn have lost their last 3 to the Cats and 3 of their last 4 to the Saints. But I guess you've still got 'em covered, eh? :rolleyes:

    The Queensland Thugs are at it again!!!

    Nick Riewoldt's treatment unfair in Gabba match againt Brisbane: Ross Lyon
    Scott Gullan

    July 10, 2010 8:53PM

    ST KILDA coach Ross Lyon has slammed the Brisbane Lions for unfairly physically targeting Nick Riewoldt in his comeback game.

    After watching his side take a hard-fought 14-point victory at the Gabba last night, Lyon was fuming at the treatment of his captain whose frustration at the Lions tactic boiled over after the three-quarter time siren, sparking an all-in brawl involving every player on the ground.

    "Clearly he was targeted," the Saints coach said. "There was a bit of garbage we had to put up. I thought some boundaries had been set and I thought they were crossed quite clearly.

    "He will continue to be targeted but like all champions he will continue to deliver.

    The melee flared after Brisbane's Amon Buchanan slammed into the back of Riewoldt after he'd missed a shot for goal from 50m after the siren.

    The Saints star responded by dragging Buchanan to the ground with players then running from everywhere to get involved.

    "I think what happened at three-quarter time, the brawl, the emotions were high and he was clearly being targetted but that's OK," Lyon said.

    "He's a champion and we can respond, he then went back and kicked the goal (in the last quarter) to gave us a real team lift.

    "Probably the message is - don't unsettle champions."

    The same Freo that got beaten by the Tigers last night? haha

    The Hawks are the only side in the competition that can consistantly put up a fight against the best side in the comp, Geelong.

    The 4 games since the GF they have beaten us for a combined total of 20 points. Whats that, half there average winning margin? :)

    The Saints, yeah going alright Ill admit, and welcome back to the game Reewolt! But when was the last time the Saints beat the Hawks or the Cats in a FINAL?

    The Pies are allergic to the GF, the Dogs are 2 - 8 against Geelong and 0 - 4 against the Hawks.

    The Hawks finals record against the best this year;

    Cats 4 - 2
    Saints 3 - 0
    Dogs 4 - 0
    Pies 2 - 1

    13 - 3 against this years top contenders. I told you before, if we make the 8 this year put all your money on them :)

    Have a cry St Kilda. I would be a tad worried if I were a Saints supporter, could barely beat Brisbane. Geelong or Hawks to win the flag.

    Well, well, well. Now the shoe is on the other foot they are crying blue murder!
    No way near as bad as what Baker's tactics were and they are complaining.
    If Lyon is going to moan about it, then he should stop coaching that way!
    How does it go Gumby........ thats right, go and play touch football or netball if you can't handle the rough stuff!!!

    Freo - as I said, I wouldn't be worried about them. Its the Saints and Cats (and Dogs for that matter) you need to be more concerned with.

    I agree that lately the Hawks have put up a good fight against the Cats every time. So that's the same as "having them covered", eh? Sounds to me like you've changed your tune now that you've been faced with the facts. Oh, and you're now 0-4 against the Cats and 1-3 against the Saints in your last four games against each. Hardly a glittering record I wouldn't have thought.

    I would also point out that the Saints have also consistently put up a good fight against Geelong over the past two years. In fact, their two wins and one 12 point loss is a lot better than the Hawks' last three efforts - all losses. So, I guess your "facts" are wrong ... AGAIN.

    And those finals records, how far back do they go? You're not silly enough to be using 1990s (or older) results as some sort of formline for 2010 games, are you? Surely not. Because you know, that's so relevant. Hey, Richmond won the flag in 1980, they must be morals this year! :rolleyes:

    If it's finals records you're referring to, how many premierships have St Kilda won?

    Oh that's right, 1 (in 1966)

    I smell a Saints supporter!! haha.

    The H&A season is all but forgotton come finals time.. The great sides don't crack under the pressure of finals and 80,000+ crowds as some teams do. There will always be good finals sides and bad finals sides.

    My finals stats are not cherry picked from the 1930s, they are simply the most recent. Like it or not they are the FACTS :)

    I know it may be scary to look at our finals record, but thats ok, we will let you get some over us during the year and build that self confidence.. Just like in 2008.. ;)

    We let the Dogs, Saints and Cats beat us by 32, 30 and 11 points. The 3 sides that finished 1st, 3rd and 4th.

    Come finals time we pumped all 3 of you by 131 points and took the flag home!!

    And to think the Hawks got rid of Ablett, the greatest player to ever play the game, after just 6 games :banghead:

    Good move!

    Gary Ablett Jnr would of fit in well in the Hawks under the father-son :)

    The Hawks didn't get rid of Ablett, he left, he wasn't happy in Melb and went back "bush". Geelong were able to get him to play for them because they weren't a Melb based team.

    IMO he wouldn't have been the player he was playing for any Melb based club.

    WTF? Why should Saints supporters cry? The Saints won.

    You want to be dirty unskillful thugs, well that's up to you.

    You should have a cry about your salary cap reduction next season. :D

    Shame Buchanan wasn't cited for rough conduct? Hitting a bloke 30 seconds after the siren.

    The MRP are a joke for not citing him for that!

    Or Daniel Merrett for trying to cork Nick Riewoldt's thigh on the same leg he was operated on 3 months earlier. By jumping into his injured leg!

    The Lions are finished this season and dirty scumbags at that!

    See you next year fellas!!!

    Yep Brisbane's season is over. My comments were clearly directed towards those made by you in relation to Nick Riewoldt and not the Saints winning but you already know that so its ok.

    I agree, the AFL should implement a rule disallowing anyone from making contact with Nick Riewoldt as he clearly cannot handle it.

    A bit hypocritical calling us thugs also given what your players have done recently. Maybe you'll win the flag next year because I doubt the Saints will this year given how they played Saturday night.

    Sooooooo fellas does taking the Cats down make the Crows a premiership threat this year? Not bad for a team that started 0-6!
    OK maybe taking this too far, but no doubt we will be nuisance value in the 8, if we continue this form.
    Looking forward to the return of Chris Knights, his left foot was lethal from outside 50 last season.

    First side outside the 8 to dominate the Cats!

    Should make the 8 no probs!

    The Saints are still looking very good though!
