Twitter responds as Richmond capitulate again in Round 13

AFL Twitter chat for Australia
WHAT a weekend of footy we just witnessed.

The Blues continued their march towards what would be an against-all-odds finals berth, the Demons rubber-stamped their finals credentials after smashing the reigning premiers, while it was an all too familiar tale for the supporters down at Tigerland.

We think it is our professional duty to inform any Richmond fan currently reading this article, it is best if you look away now, it is about to get ugly.

Another week – another Richmond capitulation

If you made it this far Richmond fans, we commend you – but it doesn’t get any easier from here.

The Tigers once again gave up a sizable lead in a second half surrender that was close to their worst performance of the season, which is saying something.

One of the great duels of the afternoon was the battle between Alex Rance and Lance Franklin, who locked horns and wrestled all throughout the match.

One social media user questioned Rance’s strength in the contest however.

Sorry, did we say “one”?

We meant everyone.

The Swans prevailed in the end however, in what could be considered one of the great matches of season 2017.

One of the best pictures to come out of the weekend was this one, which captured exactly what the great game is about.

Blues bully the expansion club – again

From the competition easy-beats to the expansion killers in one year; what a journey it has been for the Carlton Football Club.

For the second week in a row the Blues have battered the new franchise in the AFL world. First GWS and Saturday night it was the Gold Coast’s turn to feel Carlton’s wrath.

In the eyes of the supporters, there’s one man to thank for that.

Brendan Bolton has breathed new life into the club in his role as Carlton coach, and one social media user – but less than stellar photoshop editor – saw it apt to superimpose the Blues’ main man on another famous superstar that is close to his namesake.

It was a game to savour for their superstar on-baller Bryce Gibbs, who had arguably the game of his career.

The former number one draft pick picked his team up off the canvas when it looked like they were being overrun, in a performance that is sure to earn him the three Brownlow votes at the end of the season.

While it was a fantastic night for the Gibbs, his teammate Levi Casboult had a night to forget.

Not only did he miss an easy set shot for goal in the third quarter that swung momentum back in the Suns’ favour, but a dropped mark late in the game threatened leave the door ajar for the Gold Coast to again make another run.

The big man’s set shot kicking has been low hanging fruit for social media users over the journey, but this Twitter user’s video was too good not to include.

Sorry Levi.

Demons demolish Dogs

Who saw this coming?

Melbourne and the Western Bulldogs rounded out the final bye week of the AFL season, and the Demons put on an absolute clinic, smashing the reigning premiers by 57-points.

The narrative that came out from the game was centred around the Bulldogs’ ineptitude rather than Melbourne’s superior play.

One Twitter user even went as far to say that the Dog’s descent down the ladder will stop just outside the eight.

We do not think the prospects for the Dogs are that bleak, but it is definitely a daunting road back for the reigning premiers just to make the finals.
