North Hobart got awfully close to us at the SCG back in round 4, but surely history won’t repeat. Surely…

Most people will probably tip us to win by a thousand but I’ll be happy just to get four points and no injuries.

Marvel, Sydney home crowd advantage.
I notice that Swans supporters often seem to outnumber North supporters in Melbourne, says something about both clubs.

I watched some of the North game last weekend, very low standard. But if you've currently pleading with the AFL for a PP, it wouldn't pay to run one of the flag favourites too close, like they did at the SCG earlier in the year.

I think a nice dose of big picture cunning will come into play, a healthy margin keeps that PP dream alive - North to have an agreeable 10 goal loss.

Hopefully North have the same thinking next week against us

Kidding, right?
On the one hand, North are crap this year and we're steaming.

On the other, though we've won our last 5 against North, the biggest margin has been 14 points.

No gimme, that's for sure.

A right good thumping would be nice if we can play well. Need all the % we can get and they always play well against us, its ruddy annoying.

Anyway, full marks to the Swans for trolling by naming Logan "The next Wayne Carey" McDonald against for his ... second? ... game of the season.

Surely the Blakey Cup is Match of the Round.

No love lost between these teams. Pridham applied pressure on North's existence in the context of Tas admission a few months back.

Plenty of residual bitterness among North fans about Nick Blakey's decision to go with the Bloods. His second choice was actually the Lions. Smart youngster, he has observed what happens to talent at His dad of course is part of the coaching crew at North.

I am tipping the Bloods by 55, not as much as most expect.

As for the crowd, I am tipping 22,000 of which 70% will be Swans fans.

Sydney will win as they get molly coddled and looked after by the AFL as they are sports entertainment business investment, and the league needs ROI, hence rorts like the Academy.

North are a footy club, rebuilding.

But as the several Sydney fans in attendance will see during the 1996 Grand Final celebrations, when we get up and rolling, no plastic franchise can stop us, no matter how much the AFL tips the ledger their way.

Apparently.

It's a shame Nick can't be part of it, but everyone knows there's real glory in having played for the Sydney Sports Entertainment Business Investment Vehicle, rather than the side your Dad did.

Anyway, happy watching, if any Swans fan needs an update on the rules - they can get pretty confusing with the forward passes! - shoot me a DM.

PS - shame about Gladys, she seemed nice.

So your tip on the crowd? Are North members again being offered free pies and other incentives to attend?

Tip on crowd is 80 per cent salt of the Earth knowledgeable footy stalwarts from North, 20 per cent theatre goes, corporate lawyers, ABC reporters, cocaine dealers in Sydney Sports Entertainment Business Investment Vehicle colours.

North Hobart would be a chance of beating us, but might find it harder against Lauderdale today.

I have changed the colour of your post to better reflect the jaundice that infects every word of it.
