AFL Round 22 – Fremantle Vs Collingwood

Was this the worst game of the entire season. I would hate to have been the stats man trying to keep up with the clanger count…sheesh One would never have guessed that a top 4 spot was on the line albeit against Geelong. This was a travesty best left forgotten, especially since North choked even worse against Port that would have enabled us to move up with a win. Instead the Saints go marching onto the Double-Chance

So we finish in 8th spot and face travelling to Adelaide to Play the crows…. uugh…
