Weather for Adelaide tonight will be a balmy 7 degrees, little wind and no rain.

I've given up wondering if there is a certain type of weather we play better in.

Consistently, it's certainly not sun, cloud, rain, night, day, wind, hail or humidity.

Obviously Melbourne play better in the snow.

Goody’s committed McOcide!

could this be the first Time in AFL/VFL history that two brothers in the same team have been omitted? MFC, setting records and taking names.
Surely the Wagners have both been omitted together?
Maybe Oscar and Tom they aren't even the first brothers with the surname McDonald to be dropped by the club in the same week?

Anthony and James McDonald could have potentially been by Daniher some time earlier in James' career.

I can only presume we don't expect them to get the ball over half way the entire time, based on the inclusions. Can't wait to see all our medium sized forwards fly for the pack mark in attacking 50, and all our kick outs going 50m out to the left to Gawny, who then floats one 50m down the line.
I have a sick feeling about this match.

I'm strangely excited about today - I should be able to wake up in time for the last 30 minutes

Either we lose and Goodwin gets the sack - nothing builds hope like the promise of a new regime!
OR we win, and we maybe turn the season around - I know, I know

I do feel like this is a moment of truth game (well this and the next 2)

I don't buy that big max is 100% fit every player would say that even if their not. Reckon Jacko might have to play few more minutes in the ruck so that maxy can rest forward. Also, Adelaides outs are very odd, lucky they rested their somewhat dangerous small forwards while Jetta is out and i dunno why they managed mcpherson as he has been the only one in the back half who runs and takes the game on. Still worried but Adelaide making it a lot easier with who they've picked.

Third option. We win in an ugly scrapfest playing uninspiring footy, get a pass from the media. Goodwin lauds "Outstanding" victory.

What I don't want is a scrappy 2-3 goal win that delays the inevitable. Either blow them away and make up some percentage, or lose and fast track Goodwin's departure.

Will tune in out of morbid curiosity. Will we actually show some sort of response after last week? Will we lose to the worst side in the comp and enter a genuine ‘club in crisis’ situation?

I can’t wait!

For full context - we're not just playing a team that hasn't won a game this season, but a team that is coming off a 4 day break. We've had a extra 2 days rest.

There is absolutely no excuse for flunking this 'test' tonight.
Flunk this one and Goody gets it in the neck. We should win by ten goals. Anything less than five would be the equivalent of a loss.
