Sandilands getting a farewell game this week against the Bombers. Great news for us, gives them something to play for.
He's coming up against probably the easiest possible opponent too (Zac Clarke). I have a feeling Freo could embarrass Essendon this week, although after what we did to them, it'd take a lot for next week to be anything other than an improvement

They would know Clarke well, Stringer may miss, and between Fyfe and Mundy they should easily win the contested ball in the centre of the ground.
Freo cannot Freo this up, can they?

The Lions are will be nearly the worst team in AFL history to finish top 4-6

They have beaten one team in the top 8.

They will do a Melbourne and struggle next year because the AFL can’t give them another fixture like this years.


I actually hope they can pinch the flag I like the lions but imo they are miles off the Eagles and Tigers down here at the G

I love your work MD but claiming the Lions are miles off the Lions is getting seriously meta

At least they beat Gold Coast MD and they have the "Brisbane Bontempelli" Mitch Robinson, I love the
way they play and their NEAFL side is undefeated.

True and they are good to watch but I just don’t think they are that good and can see them getting an absolute spanking in a final.

As I said I actually hope they win it but don’t think they are any chance at all, in fact I think we are more chance

Tend to agree, but that top four is tight home finals will be critical this year especially for
Brisbane and West Coast, time will tell.

They can win at home with the roll they are on and the AFL will hand them favourable umpires but eventually they have to come to the G and I fear what the eagles or tigers would do to them.

Tigers and Eagles are the big two, but Lions versus Cats is huge this week with the others playing each
other, massive week not just for us. Top four square dance where the two big cats could thrive.

Now I've heard it all.

According to one Essendon supporter on talkback radio this morning, their team "always loses to tall teams, like the tall Bulldogs". The same caller also went on to blame injuries, yadda yadda.

The reality was that Essendon lost the game in the midfield, where they were obliterated despite having all of their first choice starting mids available (Merrett, Shiel, Heppell, Clarke (tagging) with Stringer for an occasional burst before he blows up). The amount of scoring we achieved by transitioning the ball from one end to the other with no resistance from their midfield was ridiculous.

They copped it so lightly on all the monday night media shows. I can't recall one segment dedicated to breaking down the 3rd level vision, how it was 5v5 at half back, but by the time the ball was at half forward for us, merrett, heppell, shiel and the rest of them were 10-20 meters behind their opponents. This happened all game! Which show talked about it for more than 20 seconds? None, and I watched 360, otc, talking footy, footy classified.

I said exactly the same thing to my mate a couple of weeks back. I heard Alister Lynch on SEN thisarvo say they have very little injuries aswell, but goodluck to them if they make it, lets just hope Adams doesnt get to play if they do.

Might not want to be relying on Collingwood beating Adelaide this week, best result is two wins to finish.
We can’t rely on a Collingwood win in either of the next two weeks.

We need two wins and we’re in I think. We’ll deserve it, will be on a roll and it’ll be an exciting finals series.

If we can’t beat giants this week we probably don’t deserve it anyway. People could point to how s**t other teams around us are but none of them lost to GC and Carlton.

Yet most of the teams around us haven't beaten three of the top four.

People need to get over losing to Carlton and Gold Coast. Its not a sin to. Every team loses to bottom teams, sometimes more than once or twice at some point. People keep bringing it up. Its like your ex girlfriend, time to move the freak on

Need to get a big CHER sing-a-long happening: "If I could turn back time, if I could find a way" come to
think of it, it does not help much. What about a bit of OASIS "Don't look back in anger" forget it I am
just getting angry over the poor losses. Everything happens for a reason.

The Carlton and Hawks boards are both overflowing with confidence that their clubs have secured Coniglio.

The melts on the losing board (or even better, both if he stays at GWS) are going to be incredible, genuinely can't wait
All clubs have them, but the extra cockisness of some clubs supporters these days.

North, everyone wants to come to them, until they don't
Hawks, everyone wants a slice of Clarko
Blues, they are the destination club, everyone seems to go there, but they still suck
Saints, everyone linked to them so far this year. The new North?
