Game Review

The Blues were appalling.

And yet, as I left, I couldn't help but think ....

..surely we couldn't play this badly again,

..surely we couldn't be this unlucky again (we hit the post 5 times and only scored 2 goals),

..surely the Pies wouldn't rate us next time,

..surely Barass would repair what was broken.

..surely all was not lost.

Hadn't I seen us kick 1-11 against Essendon on Anzac Day 1968 and reverse the result on Grand Final day? Perhaps, 1970 could still be our year.

We would see.

Milestones

Interesting Fact: It wouldn't just be this whitewash defeat in a Premiership year; this game brought back memories of another horrible early season where glory would shortly follow...
