I find that interesting - for me, the game against Sydney was the most emotionally attached I've felt to a footy game, or a result, since the news of the saga hit. Which made the loss hurt more than anything I've felt recently (footy related). BUT - I am, in some strange way, happy about being angry about footy again.
The other interesting thing about your statement is that if you're disinterested in football - I wonder if any of the players feel the same way? And if that's the case, are we going to have to put up with Tomic-like performances?
