    That's mental. What has the line blown out to? 55 or something?

    44.5 at the moment, only heading north though. Freo are virtually becoming unbackable. Who'd get behind them at $1.07? Surely they aren't that certain to win?

    The suns are only $1.50 further out to beat Essendon. Crazy.

    I put $10 on the Lions by 1-19 at $11.

    Also $1 on Brown first goal/Lions win at $76.

    As long as it's a Bay 13 trial I'll be right!

    Very nice at $76. Like that a lot.

    Wow, what site was that on? Wouldn't mind jumping on the Brown/win double.

    Their odds aren't usually as good as other sites.

    The problem is if I win I get $75 but I'll be kicking myself for not putting more on.

    I liked the sound of that so much that I went and placed the same bet - but got $82.50 odds :D

    Sportsbet are paying roughly the same. Just took the Lions 1-24 @ $10.

    I don't think we're going to win but I would like to think we are are better side than what the odds are saying. It was only two weeks ago that the bookies had us as underdogs v Melbourne.....

    At the very least I am pretty confident we'll be within the 44 point line.

    Tempted to put 15 on us to win and 10 on us at the line as a hedge.

    I find the line hard to comprehend to be honest. The Gold Coast line is only 2 goals more and they have been simply deplorable.

    I agree..the odds offered in this game are ridiculous. Given our home ground advantage Brissie should be at around $3.

    I am tempted to put a lazy $20 on the Lions myself.

    The most recent Lions site story notes that Big Red trained with the forwards today.

    Link.

    Is there anything to it, or are we just being a bit sly?

    Its possible Merrett might swing a bit in the game. But I think Merrett will play in defence come Saturday.

    I really really hope it's sly.

    It's time for Merrett to get back to the position where he is one of the best in the comp...the longer the makeshift swap goes on we will gain less on the roundabouts and lose more on the swings IMHO.

    The mind boggles at the prospect of Merrett playing at full forward against the Suns...bad memories...deja vu we don't need.

    Think we may be fitter than many think.....Fremantle seem happy to play a couple of players that appear light on for conditioning.....may turn out to be decisive on the humungous patch over there.

    We can also match their tolerance to the heat.

    Interesting me thinks

    Fresh perspective tonight, my pessimism about this game is fading. Brisbane by 19.

    why do we have to read so much about people betting on here? Personally I hate gambling but love the lions.
    sorry but surely it could be posted somewhere else

    I'm personally conflicted about this game but not to do with the game itself. Devastated that Simon won't be playing but very happy for Rhino. Just wish they could both be in the team.

    Oh well, if that's the worst part of my day, life isn't all that bad. Bring on the footy and let's erase the bad taste from last week. :thumbsu:

    Game day!! Super excited for this, more because I get to see some of my favourite players play. Brown to kick 6 on his return, and Longer kicks 4 goals in a 25 posession count for the Rising Star Nomination.
    Oh and Harwood and Drummond come unscathed.

    Carlton was last week. Keep up Haso.

    Really hoping Rhino steps up and makes the spot his own.

    My bad.

    Agree on Rhino. He certainly comes across as a determined youg man, so I can really see him throwing himself headfirst into the game and almost literally into each contest. This will also be a great opportunity to see how much better his fitness is beyond running around in the NEAFL.
