If we sneak this one (I think it's a good chance imo ) I'm going to throw my house on the Tassie game. We're odds on to start winning away consistently from what I've seen so far and when we pip Adelaide at their home we'll believe we can win over east. Strap yourselves in....

Sorry to hijack, but I will be over in Adelaide for the weekend and the game. I know they're training Friday at home but do you think they'll do a beach session or something on Sunday morning?

I've paid the $75 for the ticket to see this game sitting alongside my Crows supporting family. Given the terrible record we have there it is an ugly price to pay if we cop a loss, but will pay dividends if we jag a win.

Looking forward to Nyhuis versus Betts.

Looking forward to a zero goals next to Walker.

Looking forward to getting a real life look at our forward line.

I hope it's better than my real life look at our forward line this year. Then again, EVERY performance other than that one has been.

Definitely way more of a winnable game than I gave this at the start of the year. There's something about both this season as a whole and the Crows that gives me quite a bit of hope for Sunday

Their backline is a little depleted. May be able to work that to our advantage.

I'm somewhat more excited for the game after this one. Richmond at home without Rance, Cotchin, Reiwoldt, Short, maybe Astbury or more. We should win that one.

As for Adelaide, we beat them at home when we were both worse teams. Pearce has beaten Tex a number of times before both in good form so that should be a good battle. Put switkowski on Smith and let Laird hack it 50m to our interceptos. Nyhuis is a great match up for Betts. Our forwards were down last week but they can rebound.

Like most games it will be won and lost in the centre, we have contested game to beat them and the outside run to do them on the spread.

This game and next week are pivotal to our chances of making finals. 2/2 and we just about get there, we can do it but it will take our best.

Freo by 9 points thanks.

Hey Gav are you familiar with Adelaide Oval?
I got my ticket and it appears to be general admission as it doesn't have a block number and seat 776?
Is this standing only?

The most pivotal thing about this game to is not so much the WIn Loss
But the way we play by taking the game on and backing ourselves and playing a brand

In the past at Adelaide we have reverted to down the line crap as soon as the pressure was on with disastrous results

I honestly think this group has the confidence to take the game on and win but ghosts of games past still haunt

Hey guys, wanted to ask about Blakely. With Neale gone this year is he an automatic into the guts this season?
Seems like he missed a gig for this round, but I would think yes, straight into the midfield when he does come back in.

Hmmm, Don't think we can match them in the middle without Blakely

Also we always get trounced at AO so can't see a win this round, hopefully the boys prove me wrong
