Go Saints, beat Melbourne, Brisbane, Western, Essendon, Port Adelaide, Carlton, Sydney, Hawthorne, Feemantle and Geelong in order, to start the Season 10-0!!!

"Tennis".
And "finish your opponent off without any mercy" do not belong in the same sentence.
Care to play a match sometime???

The point I was trying to make is that it's still possible to kick someone's ass without physical contact. The mindset in tennis is not to let up at all when your opponent is falling apart, same as in football. Although, I'll admit the physical element of domination in football takes it to another level.

There's also the fact that we may very well meet Dallas in the playoffs again. No need to get their players riled up any more than necessary, or to show more of our hand/plays than we need to. Next time around you can be sure they'll be watching every kickoff and end around, fake or not.
