Up, down, up, down, and up again. That seems to be the way of it at the moment for the Pies. Another Friday night this time up in steamy Brisbane and it took but seconds to realise Collingwood had come to play. They were supreme in the opening 15 minutes and had the hapless Lions dead to rights by quarter time.
Some may well say the game petered out from that point, however for Pies fans coming off a truly terrible week it was a sweet reprieve. We were never troubled and cruised to victory. I’m sure real lions are ferocious man-eaters but Friday’s lions were anything but. They might even make a nice pet.
