Footy fans write off Swans’ grand final chances after just ONE quarter as Cats race out to huge lead – and Mason Cox chimes in: ‘This is already HORRIFIC’
There are still three quarters to go but some Sydney Swans fans are fearing another Grand Final flogging after an opening term to forget at the MCG.
The Cats raced to a five-goal lead in a blistering start to the game for Chris Scott’s side, who penned the Swans in their own defensive 50 for the majority of the first quarter on Saturday afternoon.
The dominant manner of Geelong’s performance left Swans fans shell-shocked, with some already writing off their chances of mounting a comeback.
Sydney fans have written off their chances after just one quarter of the AFL Grand Final
Geelong raced to a five-goal lead, leaving fans fearing that the game is already over
‘Nah this is already horrific oh god,’ one concerned fan posted on Twitter.
Another said: ‘Can we bench our coach at quarter time?’ while other fans blasted their ‘absolute pretenders’ and implored officials to ‘stop the fight’.
One Swan fan said: ‘Another flogging on the cards here. I watched the Hawthorn thrashing of us years ago, and it’s on again.’
Meanwhile, Collingwood star Mason Cox shared his view, with the big man singling out the success of forward Tom Hawkins in the ruck as a cause for concern for Sydney.
‘Most embarrassing thing as a ruck is to be pushed under in F50 and they kick a goal. Hawkins has done that twice now.’
John Longmire will be hoping that a tactical change can inspire a seismic comeback, but AFL legend Gerard Healy fears that the Cats may have already stretched out of the Swans’ reach.
‘The Cats are making a hell of a down payment early,’ he said via AFL Nation. ‘It’s shock and awe.
‘Hats off to Geelong. Their strategy, pressure, structure as all been premiership class’
