Round 3 Results
Holy Moley what a round of footy we had!
Just when I started telling you that I can see this big division in the competition already and that it’s just going to be US v THEM kind of comp for the rest of the season we see a whole wad of upsets that reshape everyone’s thinking. And whoa is me, In the words of Lloyd Bridges in Flying High, looks like I picked a bad week to give up picking roughies! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmW-ScmGRMA as my preview stated last week I so wanted to pick Freo and GC but I had thought the time was ready for me to start joining the favourites rat race!!
Let's just have a look, shall we, at the numbers that count…..
42 can’t start with any other game but the 42nd Showdown. What a game hey, had everything you could want great marks, great goals, great clashes. Was happy to hear out of Melbourne Mark Robinson talking and saying that the rivalry that there is between Adelaide and Port Adelaide is superseded by none. No one even comes close. Forget about your Carlton and Richmond and your Collingwood Essendon none come close. And the big reason being is every Showdown is always close no matter what position each team is on the ladder. Just look at the score now after 42 Showdowns. 21 a piece!!
17 did I tell ya that Crows beat Port by 17 points on the weekend?
80 metre bomb. How was that kick of Tex Walker from 70 metres out on the weekend? It amazes me these days at how many players in the modern game can just take 1 step and drop these over 50 meters’ kicks. Walker's big bomb even went 10 metres past the goal line.
9 & 16 Those men Rory Sloan and Ollie Wines didn’t they give a show? Sloan won the Showdown medal but if Port had of won Ollie would have won it. I told you at the start of the season that Rory and Ollie would share the Brownlow this year. Hope you got on board!!!
8 was there any other games on last weekend? Oh yes there was wasn’t there 8 others with 5 upsets (according to bookies) Big upsets too.... Collingwood, Carlton, Tigers, Freo (did tell ya but didn’t do it myself) and the best to the last with the little wizard hitting back with 38 best on ground touches Gold Coast.
