What A Shitty Week For The Geelong Football Club!

It starts out the same as any week for Geelong in 2010. Rumours of the defection of the Brownlow medal winning superstar Gary Ablett. Ho-hum. Whatever shall we do.

Secondly, James Hird gets appointed as coach of Essendon. Normally this wouldn't raise an eyebrow at the Cattery, but the fact he has zero experience in coaching means that he'll need someone to hold his hand. Now the rumours start up that it's going to be either Bomber, Choco Williams, or Dean Laidley.

Whatever, as if that'll happen.

Third, Bomber comes to the club and tells them that he's not sure he wants to continue coaching next year. Great! But he assures the club that it's not because he's heading to Essendon to become Director of Coaching or some shit, it's purely because he's burnt out. And if that's true I say fair enough.

But the footy world is a strange beast. Undying support can turn into knives in the back in the space of 2 days.

So now we've got a coach who doesn't want to coach us anymore, but is being wooed by his old club. The club he captained to a premiership, and that has just signed it's golden boy to a coaching stint.

So the club superstar comes back from his holiday in - surprise, surprise - Queensland and call a press conference for 12.30. OK, finally, the rumours will be put to bed. And put to bed they were.

He's gone.

The final bearer of the Ablett name. The name that sits alongside Farmer, Wade, Davis and Ford as being synonymous with Geelong.

And 20 years of history is cast to the wind.

Goodbye Gary. It was good while it lasted, but now you've moved on. And soon, so shall we.

Fallout from the Bomber Thompson decision.

The decision by Mark Bomber Thompson has left the Geelong Football Club in a sticky situation.
The club really needs for this decision to become final by the end of the week so that preparations can be made for trade week which begins next Tuesday.
With Gary Ablett still not signed and Thompson undecided, it makes it hard to make any plans.
Should Thompson leave I would like to see either Ken Hinkley or Brenton Sanderson get the job. Both have had vast experience as assistant coaches and would do the club proud.

Mark Bomber Thompson meets Geelong Cats to discuss future plans.

Mark Thompson today met with the Geelong Football club to decide his future with the club.
The club released a statement today to say that Mark has not decided to leave to coach Essendon, but is still wanting to reconsider his future with the Cats.
The statement revealed that Bomber was feeling fatigued and was reconsidering his options before the start of the 2010 AFL season.

James Hird to coach Essendon in 2011

Good news for Bombers fans and Great news for Cats fans.

With James Hird being announced as the new coach for the Essendon Bombers the chances of Mark Thompson being poached has grown nigh on imperceptible.

Now once Gary Ablett announces that he is staying at Geelong in 2011 we will be ready to challenge for the 2011 premiership.

Go Cats!

Melbourne Cup 2010 Betting System Trial 1 Results Are In!!!

The system being developed at has had it's first full race meet trial on the 25/09 2010 at the Randwick Races.

I must say that it has performed very well for a first up trial, with a ROI of 120.25%! That's a tidy profit.

So get on over to Who Will Win the Melbourne Cup and check out the system. In teh coming weeks it will be your best tool for working out which horse will win the Melbourne Cup.

Geelong Cats are premiers for another week!

Oh Yeah! With the 2010 AFL Grand Final being a draw, the 2009 AFL Premiers are still reigning premiers! Go Cats!

When will Gary Ablett announce his decision now that the Grand Final was a tie?

Gary Ablett was rumoured to be announcing if he is staying at Geelong or going to the Gold Coast in the week after the 2010 AFL Grand Final. Now that it is a draw, when will he make his announcement? This week or next?


After the 2010 AFL Grand Final draw, the game will be replayed next week, with supporters expected to have to pay again for tickets.

Many people bought $1300 tickets through AFL affiliated scalpers. Now they will have to fork out again or miss the 2010 decider.

The AFL is laughing all the way to the bank.

It's a draw!!!

The 2010 AFL Grand Final Between Collingwood and St Kilda is a draw!!!

Probably the best result I could imagine considering I hate both teams!

Thread of the day.

I'm gonna start linking to posts/threads on forums that I think are particularly interesting.

This thread from "biggazza" really caught my eye.

Memories of Collingwood preliminary final defeats past...

What really caught my eye was this paragraph: "the way that Collingwood scored the first two goals and the fans were going Troppo! We didn't even look like scoring. Pies fans were all in our faces telling us we may as well head for the car park. Then we piled on something like the next 8 goals."

Good times had by all. Head on over to Blue And White Hoops and check out the great stories, or even write one yourself.
