    Wow, what a breath taking launch o_O, with some carnival acts for some reason, a sky diver who missed the X, and genuine superstar players from powerhouse clubs like Jack ... ahh .... Billings from St Kilda .... and some bloke from North Melbourne.

    As someone on SEN (Turfy I think) pointed out the day, amazing that St Kilda and North are so keen to pump up AFLX while both clubs will be desperate to renegotiate their Etihad agreements with the stadium's new owner isn't it ...

    It was really unfortunate that they weren't allowed their full act due to the playing surface ...

    So, with an Open Training Session planned for this Saturday, and our AFLX games on the night before, that probably gives us a fair indication about what sort of team we can expect ... not particularly strong, which I'd call a win.

    Rest the bottom 14 this week, make sure none of them have to be replaced by better players.

    I’m surprised Port have named Trengove in their squad. His lack of pace is going to be brutally exposed in this format. I reckon he’d be shitting himself at the moment.

    I just realised, we're playing Carlton first up as the "Away" team ... meaning AFLX could potentially could potentially be the debut of the Royal Blue ... tho I'm sure it'll just be last years clash instead.

    Come on, if anything, AFLX should be taken seriously right down to the jumpers

    Port picking all Four Horsemen of the MFC Apocalypse makes me want to watch their games.

    Bet he was one of the AFL demands

    I'd rather not have him, Nev or Tmac in the squad at all. Brayshaw i'm, 50/50 on. I doubt he'll cop a head knock in this format, but also want him to be heading into the season at 100%

    I’m the opposite on Brayshaw, he just needs to play footy regardless of what competition it is.

    Does two games on one Friday night count as extra?

    It'll be good to get a look at Spargo, Baker and Johnstone, at least.

    I presume TMac will be rucking... if there is a ruck? Not sure why we'd take the risk. Same for Petracca and Bradshaw.

    Isn't it only 3 games if you make the GF?

    Three teams per group = 2 opponents.

    Also the only reason I give a shit is I want to see if Bugg's disposal has improved.
