AFL from LA

https://youtu.be/8J60o1dcSPM I felt horrible hearing the news about Nick's injury. Six weeks out is going to put a dent in Collingwood's premiership chances and rob us all of seeing a young superstar on the park. I'm wishing you a speedy recovery, Nick. And here's a memo to all AFL commentators. Maybe now you can ease up on all the non stop Nick talk. He's a generational talent and a humble young man. But you're only going to make the neutrals resent him with all your non stop coverage. Give the kid a break.  Welcome back to AFL from LA. I'm your host, Cindye. I finally made it to the Griffith Observatory. Famous movies such as Rebel Without a Cause, The Terminator, and La La Land were filmed here. Western Bulldogs v Richmond The Bulldog's 55 point victory was their biggest of the year, their biggest over the Tigers in 13 years, and the biggest snoozefest I've had to sit through since _The Flash_. Seriously, what's up with the Tigers and Marvel Stadium? They show up about as often as Harold Holt at a beach party. Is it that grueling eight minute drive? In the first quarter alone, they conceded 9 goals. I mean, even Rory Lobb scored a point. Have to give full credit to the Bulldogs, though. They came back fighting after their loss to the Giants last week. Hi, Tobes. With Libba continuing his career best season, and the Bont reminding everyone whose name is going to be etched on the Brownlow. Take it easy, Pies fans. I heard plenty from you guys last week after my comments on the fixturing. The Tigers are now languishing in 13. And, wait for it, they play the Saints next week at Marvel Stadium. Not sure how Tigers fans are feeling about having to revisit the dreaded Docklands next week, but I have a sneaky suspicion that the Saints fans are thinking they have a real chance.  Essendon v Eagles Eagles fans have never been more relieved to lose a game by one point. North Melbourne fans, on the other hand, are crying in their beers. Yes, the Eagles snatched Harley Reid from the jaws of victory against the Bombers at Marvel Stadium. Apart from the lousy second quarter, where the Dons kicked six goals to two, Simmo's boys booted more goals than their opponents, laid more tackles inside 50, but lost the free kick count 22 to 12. Take your pick for which was the worst non decision. Noah Long being taken out in front of goal? Oscar Allen being blocked in the dying moments? Or how about that ball up that went straight to the Bomber's ruck and resulted in the winning goal? I know footy's hard to umpire, and I know it's a thankless job, but they've got four of them out there now, and they're still having a worse season than the Eagles. A big shout out to Elliot Yeo, who was a rock in defense during the last quarter. And Tim Kelly, who's 30 disposals, 5 clearances, and 7 score involvements, practically sealed him for this year's B&F. And how about those baby Eagles? Hewett, Chesser, Long, Maric. Just 40 games between them, but you can already feel what the next 40 are going to be like. Combine that with West Coast's hand at this year's draft, and the return of guys like Liam Ryan, Jai Culley, and Jamaine Jones next year, I'm forecasting sunnier skies and anything but an 18th place finish next year for the Blue and Gold.  Hawthorn v Collingwood It was a bold decision by the Pies not to play a midfield against the Hawks, with Sam Mitchell's boys winning center clearances by an incredible 18 3. I don't know who was more impressive. Newcombe, Worpel, and Day in the center? Sicily down back? Breust and Lewis up front? Finn Maginness for his job on Nick Daicos. Finn clung to the superstar like glad wrap, allowing him just five touches for the game. Two of which came from free kicks and one from a kick in. The Pies have the Cats and the Lions at home, both of which they should win, and which will secure them top spot. The Hawks are still likely to finish bottom four, but if ever there was a coach, a midfield,
