After last night I don't think I'll ever go to a match again with Chris, who has now convinced me that she must be the biggest bandwagon supporter ever, with her beanie and other paraphernalia nice and new, straight out of the packaging and everytime the Saints got a goal, waving her fist in my face and screaming at the top of her lungs.
While the game was probably over at quarter time and looked like being a blow out, the boys managed to show at least something in the second half, got the margin back to 23 points (i think) before just running out of legs. Lloydy was brilliant, with next to no ball supply, was probably unlucky not to get 7 goals. Some of the young kids showed something, like Kepler. McPhee tried hard all night, but we lost something when he had to go back on Gherig.
What really shits me though wasn't the feral Saints supporters who were more full of themselves than ever, but the Essendon
so called supporters. When something goes wrong they just turn and bag the crap out of one of their own, Bolton I think was on the recieving end of most of their abuse last night. So what, he had a crap night, but it doesn't help anyone to give him crap from over the fence anytime he went anywhere near the ball, he's not fucking superman. Other players like the Johnsons, McPhee and even Lloydy copped it too, and when you say anything back to these idiots, they churn out the age old response, I'm a member, and I'm having my say. Being a member, is about supporting, not degrading your team if you have something to say there are better avenues to take. </rant>
