One-eyed with Jack Hudson

One-eyed: Port Adelaide v GWS Giants

It was heartbreak again at Adelaide Oval, as the Power lost to the Giants by a point on Saturday night.

What’s the point? (Aside from the margin, obviously).

This week was the first home game I’d missed all year, as I was out for a mate’s birthday, yet, I still ended up being able to watch…

…and scream…

…and swear audibly.

I love when we do things consistently, and that’s just how we started with another goalless quarter.

That said, we weren’t playing terribly despite the obvious lack of a key forward.

I have an idea here, and boy, I might break football as we see it.

How about we play two key forwards?!

No? Okay then.

I was actually pleased with how we were playing, but one thing that needs to change is the AFL’s absolute dog shit score review system.

Can someone out there explain to me how following that score review, the ball wasn’t returned to OUR player, who was ALREADY IN POSSESSION OF THE BLOODY BALL.

In all honesty, for a multi-million dollar corporation funding this, our score review system is put together with potatoes.

The system in the English Premier League is absolutely sublime, and if you want to do something, you do it bloody right from the start.

However, our season is definitely over.

We have Essendon at Colonial/Telstra Dome/Etihad/Marvel this week, who love playing us there.

We then play Sydney at home, North Melbourne away, and Fremantle at home.

There’s a good chance I end up in therapy in four weeks.

Pray for me all.
