AFL from LA

https://youtu.be/FO4ZUoLi5YA If you had told me that Port, missing, Dixon, Marshall, and Rioli, were gonna beat Melbourne, I would've told you that the Eagles were gonna win the flag this year. And I probably wouldn't have put that hundred down on the demons.  Welcome back to AFL from LA. I'm your host, Cindye. Sir Doug Nicholls Round. I mean, I couldn't get enough of it. The jumpers, the painted shoes, the ceremony. Sad that I gotta wait another year for that to come around again. So here are my hot takes for Round 10.  Fremantle v Geelong Freo has now won three in a row and has kicked over a 100 points in each game. Freo's midfield are mauling opposition midfields. Without Dangerfield and Cam Guthrie, it was like the Cats had been declawed. And for the second week in a row, Jeremy Cameron went missing. While the delivery to Tom Hawkins was more like the Eagles delivery to Oscar Allen down in Tassie. Freo have made the switch to fast ball movement, which has allowed them to have quality inside 50s. And with jets like Young and Frederick providing outside run, J Lo has no excuses for not being able to make a run at finals. Flagmantle, anybody?  Essendon v Richmond Essendon finally stood up and said, Nobody puts baby in a corner! Wait, that's not right. Nobody beats us 14 times in a row. Credit to big time players, Tippa and Stringer, for coming alive in the last quarter. Merrett was best on ground with 39 disposals, 7 tackles, and 5 clearances. Brad Scott, why is he so grumpy? Richmond has now lost nine and drawn three of their last twelve close games. Does that make them the most un-clutch team of the competition? I think Richmond's season is over and I think the rest of the comp is breathing a sigh of relief that they won't have to meet them in September.  Port Adelaide v Melbourne Melbourne needs to be reminded that the game is played over four quarters and not just one. And there's this little guy named Zak Butters that they might wanna put a little work into. Butters played one of the best games I think this American has ever seen. He took on perhaps the best midfield in the game, in the rain, and destroyed them. I'm not sure why Melbourne went into this game as favorites. They've only played 2 top eight teams. They lost to one of them and they would've lost to Gold Coast if it wasn't for such terrible umpiring. And if Melbourne lose to Freo this week at the G, they should definitely be behind Collingwood, Brisbane, and Port Adelaide for flag contenders. Port have now become as entertaining as the Pies to watch. They nullified May and Lever, keeping Melbourne to just 41 marks, the lowest ever under Simon Goodwin. Does this mean Hinkley gets his contract extension? “Ken” more years? Do we get to watch more of his little happy dance?  Carlton v Collingwood Onto what promised to be the blockbuster game of the round, Hawthorn versus Eagles. I mean, Carlton versus Collingwood. Collingwood possess this rare, magical thing called Darcy Moore. Moore was best on ground, with 25 disposals, 10 contested, and 11 intercept marks. It's an AFL record! I heard Michael Voss was about to make another excuse during the postgame and apparently Darcy Moore intercepted that. The Blues clearly thought that Moore was wearing a Carlton jumper, as they were kicking everything to him. Likewise, they thought McKay was wearing a Collingwood jumper, as they kicked hardly anything to him. Carlton just couldn't handle the Pie's pressure and they couldn't win the ball at the source. I was constantly yelling out, Who's Defending?! Pendles and Sidebottom had 20 uncontested possessions. In the first quarter! Sidebottom, by the way, is a freak of nature. He's played 300 games and he covers the ground like a 20 year old. I'm already looking forward to his 400th. Collingwood now have a two week bye. And by bye, I mean they play North Melbourne and then the Eagles. Carlton plays Sydney and then Melbourne.
