AFL from LA

https://youtu.be/lxhFWwgcZOo AFL fans, I ask you to join me in a moment of silence to honor an old friend of ours, Holding the Ball. This week marked its untimely demise, joining its long lost cousin, the Dissent rule, in the great Rulebook in the sky. May they rest in peace. And may their memories be a lesson to us all. In the great game of footy, nothing is sacred. Welcome back to AFL from LA. I'm your host, Cindye. I'm standing here in front of the Manhattan Beach Pier, where movies such as _Starsky and Hutch_, _Falling Down_ and _Point Break_ were filmed.  Western Bulldogs v Essendon Luke Beveridge's hand is shaking with relief after the Bulldogs trounced the Bombers by 41 points. It's the Dogs 9th win from their last 10 outings against the Dons. At this point, seeing the Bulldogs on your schedule feels for the Bombers like seeing your ex at a party. You know it's going to be a world of hurt. The odds of public humiliation are high. And no matter how hard you try, you can't escape it. The game was played in perfect conditions under the roof at Marvel Stadium. But for the Bombers, it felt more like being trapped in a Stephen King novel. And that novel was titled, _Libba: the Tattooed Terror_. The inked one racked up 39 disposals, 8 score assists, and 12 clearances. But what was even more scarier than that Bulldog? A Bulldog named Bontempelli. The Bont completely dominated the game, with 29 disposals, 2 goals, and 8 inside 50s. The Bont is the LeBron James of AFL at the moment. And then, there's Jake Stringer. Jakey, baby. What's going on? Two years ago, you, The Package, were Essendon's weapon. You catapulted them into finals with your dazzling talent, but now, The Package is missing in transit. Lost in the mail. Come on, Jake, you're so much better than this. Richmond v Hawthorn A team trailing by 5 goals at 3 quarter time, only to come back and snatch a 1 point win with only a minute left to play happened again. No, not Collingwood, silly. That's later. Richmond. Yes, heart attack football is catching faster than the flu, with Andrew McCloseone having a serious case of it. The Young Hawks completely dominated the first 3 quarters. And Captain Sicily equaled the Intercept mark record again! But the young Hawks folded like a cheap lawn chair when the heat came in the last. Led by Liam Baker, who has clearly been watching Jamie Elliott highlight reels, Daniel Rioli, and Tim Taranto, who scored his third goal of the game. It's the third game this year that the Hawks have lost by less than a goal. And while 2023 is going to see them finish bottom four, 2024 is most certainly not. For the Tiger Army, you guys are just percentage points outside of the 8. But with games against the Dees, Bullies, and Port in the run home, making finals is going to take even more Andrew McCloseone heart attack football.  Carlton v West Coast West Coast Eagles 8.5 defeated Carlton 6.5 at Marvel Stadium. Wait, no, that was the second half, Cindye. The West Coast Eagles 10.9 outscored Charlie Curnow 10.3! Come on! At least let me have that one. Alright, alright, the Carlton Blues demolished the West Coast Eagles by 12 goals. With superstar forward and owner of curls even better than mine, Charlie Curnow kicking a personal best 10 goals. I gotta admit, I was completely wrong about this one. I told my Carlton bestie, Blue Abroad, that Carlton was only gonna win by 5 goals. He hid his laughter like a true gentleman, but quietly added, Charlie's gonna kick ten. Well played, Terry. Well played. I thought it was also gentlemanly of Carlton to rest Cripps and Cerra for this game. However, I thought it was downright disrespectful not to rest Charlie Curnow. The Eagles would have been right in it! Okay, Cindye, back to Planet Earth. The Blues took their foot off the Eagles throat in the second half after suffering injuries to Jumping Jack, Walsh, Motlop, and Cincotta. Bad, Petrevski-Seton. Carlton now sit ninth.
