And we're back!

After a long break, we are back.

The mid-year break, combined with work commitments threw us for a loop.

So far this year we've had the Cats hold out a fast-Finishing Hawthorn lead by Buddy Franklin.

Once Matthew Scarlett was rested in the 4th quarter things fell apart for the Geelong Cats.

Surely the best full-back in the league.

Round two resulted in a disappointing result for the Cats.

Most expected Richmond to get a hiding, but few recall that Geelong don't play their best football at Kardinia Park, nor do they bury teams that should be an easy beat.

Round three was the grudge match versus Collingwood, one of two teams to score a win against the Cats in season 2008.

While the Magpies pulled away early, they lacked the class to go with the Cats for 4 quartersand ended up being brushed aside easily. You can almost feel the pain of Mick Malthouse, Eddie McGuire and Joffa. How sweet it is.

Round four's match against Adelaide Crows was meant to be a danger game for the Cats, but while the crows pushed the away side, they never headed them. If Sherrins were made of asbestos Gary Ablett would have a terminal case of Mesothelioma.

Round five saw the Cats return to Skilled Stadium for the match against Brisbane Lions. Freezing temperatures, hail, and blustery winds didn't help to draw the crowds to Kardinia Park, with only 15,000 loyal fans turning out to see the Cats thump the hapless Lions. Sherrin needs to retain some Mesothelioma attorneys as Garry Ablett racked up another 42 possessions, while also kicking one of the goals of the year from the boundary in the final quarter.

Not to be outdone, Max Rooke bounced one in fromthe opposite pocket. Cameron Mooney and Tom Hawkins also put in strong showings.
