What a funny week in footy we have had at the tribunals. How I see it we had the Bacha case referred from AFL Body 1 to AFL body 2 which then the AFL body referred it on again to AFL body 3 and then the AFL is happy. Only in Victoria hey.
Melbourne v Sydney
Is this the game of the round? I hope so! Because if it ends up being a ripper of a game then it also means that Melbourne are certainly the real deal. I got to say I have an empty feeling that they may fall well short, by a long way, but oh my lord I so hope the Demons get up.
Swans 46 pts
Western Bulldogs v West Coast
We ALL know one sure thing, Eagles are shite in Melbourne. Which makes the result of this game a sure thing.
Doggies 31 pts
Carlton v Adelaide
After a bad loss the Crows seem to bounce straight back and blow a team out of the water. Who better to come up against than the Blues. Let’s just hope they turn up in water.
Crows 73 pts
Gold Coast v North Melbourne
The Suns are up against the dreaded team in 17th spot. As you may remember over the last 2 rounds the 17th side has beaten the top side. This week though the 17th side is playing the 14th team so that changes the whole dynamics. Oh and Gazza is back for his 300th.
Suns 27 pts
Greater Western Sydney v Geelong
Has Geelong got a chance this week? I say no chance, but ya know what happens this season every time we say no chance up that team goes and gets up! Will it happen this week? Of course not. Geelong has lost 5 players to injury and we all expected Selwood to not play this week after being knocked out last week but in the end it's not Joel it's Scott Selwood that is out due to a torn hamstring. I did hear that Selwood did get on the plane and also Hawkins was seen limping on the plane due to a calf problem as well. You think Cats will win? Oh come on please, you definitely going to get a hiding Cats.
Giants 67 pts
Port Adelaide v Richmond
2nd best game of the weekend. So much so.... Has anyone got a ticket for me? Oh to think about it, hey there will be 20,000 empty seats so I am sure I can buy my own.
Seriously this will be a great game and a very interesting result which ever way it goes. For a Port game I am REALLY looking forward to the result. I was listening to Melbourne radio this morning and some Port fan rang and said how Port were goping to beat the Tigers this week and holey heck the next 20 minutes was radio heaven. The amount of Richmond supporters ringing up giving a the Port Power mob a bake was glorious.
Power 2 pts
Essendon v Brisbane
Oh so nearly for Essendon last week. But it was a game that they just threw away, thanks to Goddard. From that game this will be a walk in the swamp.
Bombers 48 pts
Hawthorn v Collingwood
Oh my god why did Hawks have to finally come good last week. Going by last week, how good they were and how terrible Magpies were, it has got to be a very easy choice. On ya Bucks!
Hawks 39 pts
Fremantle v St Kilda
Saints showed so much at the start of the year but now we are in the middle and they are crap I tell ya. Not sure why I say that though after they gave Suns a touch up and they have won 2 in row. Just not quite a believer I guess.
Dockers 28 pts
So that is my take on the round of footy and it looks to be a ripper. Enjoy and catch you on Monday
