The game v SK could be a danger game for Eagles.  I wouldn’t have thought that the Saints are as bad as they are currently showing.  They need a win REAL bad, so watch out West Coast.

Panned out just like you said 58shark. I watched a bit of the first half before going to Lathlain and it looked like the Eagles were all over them like a rash. A friend told me that Liam Ryan missed a sitter when WCE were about 4 or 5 goals up, then the Saints went straight up the other end and scored a goal and the whole game turned from there.

Occasionally you don’t want to be right and this was one time I wanted to be wrong.  I couldn’t watch the whole game, but what I saw didn’t fill me with confidence. I think the writing was on the wall pretty early.  When was the last time Tim Kelly missed his target a couple of times in one quarter?  Several players constantly missed targets and created pressure on themselves.  Once the Saints applied their pressure, the Eagles couldn’t handle it. Is it a case of no Shuey, no Yeo, no Eagles?

Looks like the Eagles have taken a leaf out of Freo’s book......mounting injuries.

I wouldnt say you were "right" 58 or as mikeh said it "panned out just like you said," , you simply said St Kilda "could" win and well it wasn't exactly upset of the year the Eagles losing an away game.
And i would definitely say no Shuey no Yeo no Eagles, in fact i don't think theres a side in the league that could sustain losing their best two mids for long periods.
And this weeks Eagles 22 contains 11 players 190cm or over, is that the tallest football side in history?

While they didn't play 4 qtrs of good footy they were dominant enough for long enough to get over the Pies, We know Darling is a gun but the way Oscar Allen is playing at 22 and at his size is just mouth watering, the lad can do anything, rucks well, has a great pair of hands, kicks well at goal, can be a quality key defender, is fast and good on the ground, the complete package.
Injuries hurt the Pies on the night, but the outs that WC had were off the top shelf.

Another pretty good game from NN.  Just adds to the argument that Karl Langdon’s assessment of him is just another screwball comment from a fairly poor footy critic.  I used to wonder how he continually got a game in his day.  I think Peter Wilson, when playing for Richmond, personified him beautifully.

Well done Collingwood in sending Bart Simpson out on a winning note.  You owed him that.  I look forward to listening to him in the media now.
