    Erin Phillips ruled out of this week's game against us, which is a win.

    Any word on Paxman? All I've heard is she had back spasms, anyone know how serious it is?

    Shit, that might be Adelaide's season over before it begun if they lose to us.

    Certainly puts them in a really tough spot doesn't it ... given we missed the final last year on percentage (one club - consistency!) at 5-2 ... will make life really tough for them ... they'll be missing Courtney Cramey as well ...

    Although there is this in their favour ... Paxy very unlikely - http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-02-06/aflw-gun-demon-paxman-unlikely-to-face-crows

    Dammit. Losing Paxy is huge and cancels out the loss of Phillips

    Yes and no ... both are superstars, and are massive losses, I think we've got the cattle to go a long way to replace Paxy, while the Crows have nothing to fill Phillips' void.

    Egads, phrasing!!

    But seriously I think we may have an edge particularly if meg downey can continue her round 1 form and shut out tex in the forward line

    Mifsud back in and Paxman set to play according to Mick Stinear.

    Line up is strong. Should be a cracker

    This is great news. Paxman is an absolute gun and even though we have better midfield depth then some, there is no denying it’s a loss not to have her out there. I’m also glad to have Misfud back.

    Crows knock over the Dogs! First good result of the weekend. Now just need Brisbane to win tonight (very doable) and then we need to knock over Freo and we'll be clear on top!

    You will be clear on top after this game and stay there, I reckon. Brennan for the Dogs looks to be out for the rest of the season, Melbourne will go all the way now.

    Carlton should have their licence revoked, they make the game unwatchable.

    Yeah it's pretty average, they are dragging fairly exciting teams into a knife fight.

    Undeserved too. It's like what watching Chelsea under Mourinho was like.

    Yup. Carlton didn't deserve to be top.

    As an aside, we've jumped to top literally without touching the pill.

    That’s what we call ‘the Melbourne way.’

    The safest way to improve our chances of any success, do nothing and hope.

    LOL. IIRC Rafter never actually played a match while ranked #1 and lost the ranking after just one week. At least we'll play today while top of the ladder. :) Though to be honest I won't really consider us genuinely on top till the round is complete, so fingers, toes and everything else crossed that we can actually get the win.

    Was interested/fascinated/pleased to see that the team will not be coming home from Perth after the match, but will stay in the West for a few days before heading directly to Alice Springs for next Saturday's game against Collingwood. Must have all booked in leave from their 9 to 5's I guess. :)

    I was out, so was checking teh scores on the app ... I thought there was a problem with it/my phone, as it didn't seem to be updating the score ... then I realised.
