AFL from LA

https://youtu.be/uzKk0Yf4Yn0 I'm gonna say what everyone's thinking, but Melbourne won't dare say. Dees are better off without Brodie Grundy. Sorry, handsome. Welcome back to AFL from LA. I'm your host, Cindye. I am here at the world famous Santa Monica Pier. Many of you might recognize it from awesome movies like Iron Man, Rocky III, and Forrest Gump, where, spoiler alert, Tom Hanks ends his famous run at the end of the pier.  Sydney v Western Bulldogs AFL officials were seen warning the Bulldogs and the Swans that their game was up against Wimbledon, the Tour de France, and the _Barbie_ movie, and told them they needed to keep things bloody close or else. Boy, did they. That game was tighter than a pair of Nathan Buckley's jeans. Tom Papley, celebrating his 27th birthday, decided to gift himself four goals and led the Swans to a two point nail biting victory. In the presser, John Longmire revealed that Papley had suffered cracked ribs earlier in the season. When asked whether it was due to Papley's post goal celebrations, Longmire declined to comment. The Bulldogs started strong, taking six marks inside 50 and kicking five goals. Their handball game was slicing through the Swans like an American through a buffet line. But young Swan Errol Gulden said, Enough is enough, and went to work. The Gulden child was everywhere, like a Kardashian on social media, racking up 30 disposals, 7 tackles, and 7 score involvements. What was crazy is how Longmire decided to go into the game without his number one ruckman, Tom Hickey, to face a Bulldogs team with Tim English. Despite Big Tim getting 60 hit outs, 15 to advantage, and the Bulldogs winning clearances by 18, the Swans still won. I think the Swans could have just killed the Bulldog's finals chances. And didn't the Bont know it? He looked angrier than a kid who got socks for Christmas. Did you see the way he threw his mouth guard? Ouch.  Melbourne v Brisbane I was watching this game and I thought, Holy shit, the Lions are actually gonna win one at the MCG. And then, they didn't. Brisbane, like Steven May, got Melksham'd. The Dees forward fooled everyone, kicking three out on the fulls in the first half, to shake any Brisbane interest in him, then kicked the match winning goal with only 30 seconds left. Sneaky magic trick, Jake. Brisbane, however, had an even bigger magic trick. It's called the disappearing lead. The Lions led by four goals with just six minutes to play. And blew it! Instead of keeping their foot on Melbourne's throats, Fages decided to park the bus and defend the lead. I guess we have to credit the Briz for finding new and exciting ways to lose at the MCG. They've been doing it since 2014 now. Have to give more credit to Simon Goodwin, though. He chose to play Christian Petracca mostly forward in a demon side with no Clayton Oliver in the midfield. The Trac kicked four goals for the second game in a row. I mean, he's gonna have to go in for scans of his shoulders the way he's carrying the Melbourne forward line at the moment. And who was Trac giving the loser sign to at the end of the game? Probably BT for another awesome call. Gotta give props to Viney and Rivers in the last quarter. And Big Maxy Gawn, who made the Big O look about 5'7 and left no doubt that he's still the top dog. I mean demon.  Carlton v Port Adelaide The team written off more than Tiger Wood's cars this year is back. Carlton pulled off their best win of the season, notching their fourth win in a row by 50 plus points. Shit, they've got the Eagles next week. It was the first four quarter performance against a quality opposition that I've seen from the Blues in ages. I mean, Port are the real deal, like top two flag contender real deal. But the blues said no interstate team is going to win ten in a row at Marvel on our watch. Then Carlton players started dropping faster than my Wi Fi connection. Owies went down just minutes before the game.
