AFL Round 5 – Collingwood Vs North Melbourne

Another one that we should have been able to pencil in for a win. Geez, our continued inaccuracy costs us dearly. Not only that, after raising our hopes cruelly in Rnd 1, Rocca continues with his meagre return of possessions, let alone goals. I guess the only good thing to come out of it was that there is no possible way for me to watch this game on free-to-air TV. Certainly not live, not eve a delayed telecast or even a replay telecast at 1am which was the norm last year…
