I'd love to have one home game this year where I'm not stressed until the final whistle. Have we had a home win that wasn't painful?Looks like Fox sports are tipping a big win for Port\\
PORT ADELAIDE v SYDNEY SWANS (Campbell Heath Cup)
Saturday August 10, 2.10pm at Adelaide Oval
How to watch on Fox Footy: Channel 503 from 2pm with Adam Papalia, Jason Dunstall, Mark Ricciuto, Cameron Mooney and Neroli Meadows.
Power’s burning question: Has Port Adelaide kicked itself out of September?
They can still make the eight, but Ken Hinkley’s side should probably already be well-placed to feature in the finals. Their accuracy has been the third-worst in the AFL this year (43.8 per cent), ahead of only St Kilda and the Western Bulldogs. But it’s best summed up like this: if Port’s accuracy was at the AFL average this year, they would be sixth on the ladder right now. They’d be averaging 90 points a game but, because of their inaccuracy, are actually averaging just 81 — that’s the difference between being 10th in scoring and in the top three.
Swans’ burning question: Are they due a win … or a big loss?
They keep getting younger each week at selection, but the Swans also keep taking it up to their opponents. John Longmire’s side has been in the game in all five of its consecutive losses, with only Geelong beating them by more than 10 points in a game that blew out late. That usually means one of two things; either this team has been unlucky and is due to win a close game (after all, performance in close games is basically random overall) … or they’re due to get tired and really get blown out in a thumping loss. If Port Adelaide is at its best, the latter could well be on the cards this Saturday.
Fox Footy expert tippers verdict: Port Adelaide 8 — Sydney Swans 0
I remember saying during the Kangaroos game when we got 7 goals up with about 10 minutes to go "finally I can just sit back and relax at a home game". Then we proceeded to concede 5 goals in a row. gg Port.I'd love to have one home game this year where I'm not stressed until the final whistle. Have we had a home win that wasn't painful?
No wonder people don't want to turn up. Pretty annoying that once in a while when the team decides they want to play footy, it's during an away game.It's August and the only teams we've beaten at home are Bolton Carlton, Scott North, the Gold Coast SUNS and Geelong. And only the SUNS game was anywhere close to convincing. What a joke we are.
