What's the go with the SANFL trial? I assume it's tonight against Port? I haven't heard anything about it or seen teams named...

Hawthorn’s recent record against us is crazy.

-They’ve won 10 of the last 12 games against us.
-we haven’t beaten them in Adelaide since RD1 2011, and haven’t beaten them at Adelaide Oval.

Despite that, I think we will win this one
But this is our first day home game against Hawthorn since 2009 and been round 1 expect it to be around or over 30 degrees C.

I wonder how many times we've had Nicholls umpiring in those 12 games. Seems we always get him when we play them.

Can't wait for the "Good, Bad & the Ugly/Fugly/Deplorable/Atkins etc" threads, and the Mackay melts
Come on theres more than that

Joe the Goose
Ottens too slow
Harto is plain Dumb
Douglas has passed it
Sauce is cooked
Kelly has zero ability

but when say Betts has a poor one, he must be carrying something

People definetly have their favs

Nah Betts is just too old.

And I don't mind Douglas passing it, preferably to someone better :cool:

"Adelaide midfielder Paul Seedsman will miss the opening game of the season after having surgery to repair a fractured finger on Friday."

You know what this means. I don't even have to say it. You know what will happen.
That Chayce Jones will deubt?

There is absolutely no need at all to play Mackay, zero, none, zilch, nada....

We have some exceptional young kids that would relish the opportunity.

We all know what you're thinking AFC, just don't do it.

For days now I've been thinking about our healthy list and waking up in fear something bad will happen at training.

Then today, bang! there it is - the Seed. Well, again, - ****!

Only minor thankfully and if he's gonna get hurt then better to do it with a full PS under his belt. Like Saunders said, won't lose any conditioning at all from it.

Its a minor finger injury, I'd much prefer that then what some of the other clubs are copping ACL's, blown calf, heart conditions, concussions.

Mackay was always going to play. This will mean we won't drop Murphy/Jones.
I mentioned in an earlier thread that Bran Nue Mackae makes Steven Bradbury look like a front runner.

Two years in a row we lose an outside mid immediately prior the round one. No outside mid or small defender is safe whilst BNM is around.
