This doesn't make up for Charlie and Rayner letting me down.Also like Tuohy $2.50 AGS, 3/3 from last three matches.
Drink, gamble and unwholesome activities? You should be selling memberships. Half of Bigfooty punting board would jump on a plane...These occasional big wins make it all worthwhile, the thrill of those final moments is hard to match, it's quite a rush, and makes the football something to look forward to.
Especially in a bizarre year where you find yourself stranded in a foreign land with nothing to do but drink, gamble, and engage in certain other unwholesome activities.
And that's how we gamble
you couldn;nt make this sh*t up
Teams having a first week win are now 4W and 6L in prelims. While Port predictably just lost to a better more composed team, Bris were awful. I think Geel were a better team, but it didn't look like the 1 game in 3 worked for Bris at all.I'm not sure how it's possible, but it seems like i'm a bit of a contrarian backing Richmond.
They're the better team, far more finals experience, proven in bigger games, have the best superstar, outstanding in the dew / rain, good structure, well coached.
Additionally i'm concerned for Bris and Port having 1 game in 3 weeks. I think for some teams this is a big disadvantage (teams winning week 1 are 4 and 4 in prelims whereas before the change they were 7 and 1). I think some teams come out really flat.
Remember Port have been carried through this season with HGA and aren't a proven finals side. I don't see any advantage to Port in terms of mids, forwards or backs. Edwards and Prestia back in means that dangerous players like Bolton now play forward. I don't give too much credence to the Port win vs Rich because the latter had personnel missing and a 4 day break.
On the flipside Port have HGA, plenty of enthusiasm and coming off a solid win vs Geel.
Think it's madness backing against Rich in a massive game vs Port who haven't played finals since 2014.
As far as rankings go I have Port the 4th best team currently in finals. Odds seem a bit out because you can get both games at +2.5 but Rich are better than Geel and Bris are better than Port imo.
