Good Morning Tipsters,
We apologise for the late preview we had technical problems yesterday. We had a guest writer do the footy tip predictor this week lets have a look at his thoughts…
Last round already, can you believe it? What a season it's been and quite incredible that the race for the finals has been so close yet it is all over before the last round. Soon the only thing you'll be tipping is your beer glass.
Only 2 games worth watching this weekend, however:
Port v Essendon
After recruiting for a premiership instead of young talent, Port has ended the season dismally not reaching the finals. Everyone says that Essendon had a shocker season but they finished where I expected.
Result- Bombers by 22 – in fact Bombers to kick 17.9 to the Peeears 13.11 (but that’s just a guess) & Hinkley to lose his job if they lose.
Geelong v GC Poor GC, gotta feel sorry for GC for what they had to endure for the first half of the season. And how embarrassed should Selwood, Ablett and Dangerfield be, ranked 17th (don't quote me) in the league for centre clearances Geelong are again pretenders and won't be a threat in September.
Geelong by 165
Richmond v Bulldogs
What can I say? Hopefully, Dogs will put up a fight but who cares.
Richmond by 34
Dockers v Colliwobbles
Was Ross Lyon's loooooong appointment the worst ever contract decision in the history of football? I say yes!!! I actually want Collingwood to win. Hard to back Dockers.
Pies by 23
Carlton v Crows
Crows just couldn't get it going this year, sure injuries have been disruptive but that didn't stop Collingwood finishing top 4, maybe. Concerns on the depth of their list? You tell me. Blues deserve all the flak they are getting, might be some rot to cut out of that club and I'm not referring to the coach or playing group.
Crows by 36
Sydney v Hawthorn
The 1st interesting match. Both of these sides annoyed the crap out of me this year. Sydney have been ordinary yet managed to make the finals (Booo) and I the only interest I have with the Hawks in September is watching them lose.
No Buddy, Hawks by 19
Brisbane v West Coast
With everyone saying how good Lions have looked this year and with Eagles flogged by key injuries and travelling, let's go the Lions for an upset.
Lions by 11
Melbourne v GWS
Ahhh, the match of the round, or will it be? Melbourne have been up and down but will be keen to hit form at the right time of the season. If they do, then watch out!! GWS have too many injuries to have any chance if Dees play like they did last week.
Demons by 33
St Kilda v North Melbourne
....and that brings us to the last fizzler of the round. Saints will show whether they give a crap about keeping their coach. These guys were slightly ahead of Melbourne in development 3-5 years ago. Kangas, who have also been crap for sooo long, will want Brown to win the Coleman.
Kangaroos by 5-43 points (is it that obvious I don't give a...)
Good Luck! Hope you all have a good weekend and have enjoyed this year’s footy previews. We will see you on Monday for the last wrap of the season. As always Go Crows!
