Round 17 Wrap
Good morning Tipsters,
Round 17 gone with only 6 rounds to go.
This weekend we saw some ripper games that all started last Thursday but we also saw some yawn fests as well. I saw a bit of Carlton’s game on Friday and wwwooooowwwiiee as BT would say, they are seriously bad.
Let’s have a look at some numbers that count……
3 Quiz question. There is only 1 side that has one their past 3 games in a row. Who is it. Yes you are correct one of the most unlikely sides Brisbane. Here is hoping they will not win 4 in a row.
4 16 rounds down and the top side has travelled 4 times this season and guess what they have lost them all. But Richmond supporters will just say who cares as finals are played at the MCG. Aarrgghhh
10 Adelaide had a wonderful whole team effort last Thursday night where every player in the side got to double figures in possessions. This is only the 3rd time in history to occur.
29 it was just injury carnage over the weekend. Most being small things but there also was some big names hit. Nic Naitanui, Josh Kennedy and Patrick Ryder being amongst the best of them. Robbie Gray will also likely miss next weeks all important clash with an ever improving GWS this week at AO
5 more 5 more 5 more 5 more and didn’t the crowd and more so the crows players when Rory kicked a goal from 50 on satdee night. That’s what Crawford is talking about!!!!
64 I hope you all picked the exact margin of the Frida night clash between Saints and Carlton. Remember back after round 11 and we had yet another Carlton loss on a Friday night and it was 10 in a row they had loss on a Friday by an average of 64 points? Well that has stretched out to 11 games now and wasn’t surprised to see they lost by 64 points. The average continues. Freaky!!
27 years since we have seen a ruckman win a Brownlow. (Jim Stynes) Could we see that drought broken this year. Big Max Gawn once again had an outstanding game. I sure hope he can.
7 a few underdogs won this weekend, how do I know you ask? Because Darren won the footy tipping round and was the only person to score 7 tips! I thought I had it in the bag this week, but I mistakenly tipped Port (facepalm) and Darren tipped Freo grr! Congrats Cheekster!
Have a great week and we will see you on Friday. Go Crows!
