AFL from LA

https://youtu.be/aDzZuQN2M7Q The Sydney Swans are celebrating a fiercely fought, much deserved win over the... Wait, what? The Swans didn't win? Ben Keays didn't hit the post? Every angle showed it? Then why wasn't the decision overturned? But that means the Crows were robbed! Sigh. Welcome back to AFL from LA. I'm your host Cindye, and I'm coming to you from, well, my living room. We've been forced inside. Damn you, Hurricane Hillary. And we just had an earthquake.  Collingwood v Brisbane Deven Robertson crushed it on Instagram, while his Brisbane Lions teammates crushed the Pies. The Pies and the Lions both sit on 124, while Robertson's Insta followers are at 32,000 and GROWING. The Pies have lost 3 of their last 4 games. They've also conceded 100 plus points in their last 3, something they have not done since 2008. In plain English, I just happened to learn this new word, Colliwobbles. Before you come for me, Magpie Army, I actually learned that from a Carlton fan, who told me, Sure, the Pies had 3 of their best 22 out, but Carlton has been winning with six of their best 22 out. Colliwobbles or not, there's no denying it's been a less than stellar month for the Pies. The Lions, on the other hand, have won eight of their last ten. And if they win their next three games at the GABBA, it's off to the MCG for the big dance. And that right there is the problem. M. C. G. Sorry, Lions fans, but I just don't see you doing it.  Gold Coast v Carlton The Blues are playing finals for the first time in 10 years. The Baggers came from 7 goals down, slathered in more SPF 50 than Ironman Australia, to beat the Suns by 4 points and go 9 in a row! You haven't done that since 2000! And can we all just hail King Charles? 5 goals, 9 score involvements, the Coleman practically wrapped up, full forward and full back of the year. I mean, did you see that game saving mark? The Curled One has taken his game to a whole new level in 2023. Next year, I'm thinking his own shampoo line and a bicep workout. And George Hewett? Great again. Nic Newman? A lazy 31 touches and 9 intercepts. Hello, Newman. And Mr. Paddy Dow? I mean, his last three games might even have... Sam Walsh looking over his shoulder. Look, the Gasballs were awesome for three quarters. They smashed the Blues in clearances and came so close to snatching those four points. I know you've heard that “they're going to be so great next year” line before, but with a triple premiership coach about to take the reins, a red hot midfield, and a wave of young talent, I think every team's gonna need an extra layer of SPF 50 next year.  Adelaide v Sydney The Sydney Swans are buying every lottery ticket available after a goal umpire decided not to use the goal review system that the AFL has so fiercely defended. Adelaide's final hopes are over because the AFL refuses to correct a mistake. That's like being fined for speeding when the dash cam shows your car is parked. I don't even blame the goal umpire. He's just trying to do his job. I blame the system for being so ridiculously stupid. Ben Keays kicks the goal of his lifetime. Adelaide was celebrating an all time great sporting moment. And the AFL? Eh, they did their signature move. Rolled out the boss to say a few words. Let's all commend Gil and the boys for their commitment to the past, while the rest of the sporting world embraces 4K, video assistant referees, and advanced goal line technology. Review complete. Looking at these angles, there is insufficient evidence to determine whether the AFL will be stepping into the 21st century anytime soon. Decision on the scoreboard.  Shoutout to GWS A big, big shout out to the boys in orange. What a performance! Whatever happens next week, I know one thing's for sure. 2024 is going to be an even bigger, bigger sound. Western Bulldogs v West Coast Harley Reid's glittering 200 game Brownlow medal winning career at the Eagles is over before it even began.
