Some random moments from Round 4 of the AFL

Surely the most unlikely part of a season that has seen Sydney come from nowhere to start the year 4-0 is that Melbourne have now gone 4 consecutive games without pulling a Melbourne for the first time since 1994

Jobe Watson’s Jobeisms

Once we had Murray Walker with his Murrayisms, Dennis Cometti had his Cometti-isms, now we have Jobi-wan and his Jobeisms from Channel 7’s Thursday night broadcast:

After another strange umpiring decision:

“The umpires are INTERPRETATING a player who just, maybe, didn’t execute it correctly”

Audio from Channel 7

After Isaac Heeney spilled a mark that led to a Bombers goal in the 2nd Quarter:

“Isaac Heeney dropped a mark that he would’ve kicked”

When the scores were tied at 72 in the final term:

“Which team can outwear the other one”

On Sydney and Essendon in close games:

“It seems to be the STANDUS OPERATUS for these two teams”

We might have to get on to Susie Dent in Dictionary Corner to check on ‘Interpretate’

Essendon fans shout in unison that they love Big Cox

Nik Cox also has another claim to fame in Sydney – His older sister won Australia’s Next Top Model in 2011, in case you didn’t know.

The Accidental Goal Of The Year from Joe Daniher

And it should be noted that Jack did get a free kick for holding the ball, and Harry McKay took the kick and slotted what was the only goal of the final quarter.

From the 7AFL Twitter

Odd fact – Today (April 11) is 40 years to the day since the late Jeff Fehring kicked his famous 86-metre goal from the centre square against Collingwood at Moorabbin, albeit with a bit of wind assistance:

ALLEGEDLY dangerous
