Podcast:


Ahhh St Kilda. What can you say about this club? Only do they come up in conversation when either discussing insolvent AFL clubs and teams Ross Lyon has driven into the ground. Such is level of masochism required to follow this club Saints members were laughing when mask wearing was made mandatory in Victoria due to the zip mouth leather versions they received in their membership packs now able to be worn in public. Jokes aside, they looked to be making serious in roads last year with Ratten at the helm, but have sadly fallen off the pace a bit so far this season after being cruelled by injuries. Though currently sitting 16th on the ladder, they should not be taken lightly and as history has shown, you only need to be 5% off your game and you can get rolled.



The Milestone:

This match will bring up the 200th AFL game for Brad Sheppard, criminally under-rated outside of West Coast but a beloved fan favourite for those who actually watch football. Congratulations to the great man and hopefully we can get him that flag he so richly deserves

Key match-ups:


Naitanui vs The Kitchen Sink:

Saints will need to throw everything they’ve got to curb NN on Saturday. Currently in unprecedented form let’s hope he can keep up the rampaging efforts against the entire Saints midfield.





Darling & Kennedy vs Carlysle & Howard

LoL really?



Barrass vs King

Tommy has started the year in ripping form, and considering the off-season he had personally it’s great to see him up and about and playing great footy. He’ll be matched up on one of the most promising young KPF’s in the league in King and will have his work cut out for him. If it’s anything like the GC match-up it should be a quality duel.



Tim Membrey vs Tony Galati

Despite Tony’s best efforts Membrey still manages to evade his harvesting attempts to be used as a promotional item for “World’s Largest Potato” at the Innaloo Spud Shed. Will likely still kick a couple of goals against us whilst fleeing from Tony’s abominable eyebrows.







Possible debut: Isiah Winder

Look, I’m not just saying this coz I’m his sponsor, but from the 3 minutes of draft highlights I’ve watched he looks like a hybrid of Chris Judd and Dustin Martin, but better. Kicked 5 goals in the WAFL last weekend and has been rewarded with a trip east to see how lucky he was not to get drafted by a Victorian club.





Verdict: All things going to plan, the Eagles should walk away from this with a respectable 4 goal win. Though not a certainty Saints are out of form and suffering many injuries and we should do the job and bank the 4 points. Regardless of the outcome I will be booing so loud from my loungeroom here in Perth that the pillars of Marvel will shake resulting in at least 8-9 free for.



West Coast by 26 points.

Quality preview. Side note: the one time I nearly got in a punch-on at the footy was at marvel when some saints goon was calling NN a black c***.

For that, I hope NN kicks 27.
Who talked you off the ledge from knocking his teeth down his throat? If ever there was a reason to jab someone in the chops..

Just dial the anti-social number. Or do they not put that up on the screens at Sainter games due to half the crowd likely having to be escorted out.
This was years ago before they had the number in place if I recall correctly. As it happens, the goon had a couple of much nicer lads with him - one of which was an Eagles fan - and they reined him in before it got too far down the road. It probably helps that I'm a massive, massive wimp.

Eh. My father in law has said some racist sh*t at games before. He's not a racist, just a dumbarse who can't handle his alcohol and parrots stuff others around him say. First time he did it I told him off and reigned him in. Second time...I don't go to footy games with him anymore so there hasn't been a 2nd time :cool:

Plenty of this Saints bashing this week, which doesn't bode well as we'll be getting a fired up saints outfit with no Shuey.
Everyone predicting an easy win for us, but I reckon this will be s really tough match for us. Hopefully we prevail.

On this point, last night watched a doco on Prime+Stan I think, 'Hotel Coolgardie', about getting young european backpackers to work there - attractive females of course -as barmaids. They only last a few weeks and leave, then they roll the next couple in. But it's horrifying to watch the way they're treated, racist, sexual hassassment, abuse, endless profanities hurled at them as they work. A town of alcoholics and drunkards. Men and women alike. A truly horrible side of Australia. Nothing's changed since that movie Wake In Fright was made in the sixties!

Anyway, footy, noice preview with a standard 26 point prediction.
Love Tony Spudshed's stick-on velcro hairy caterpillars!
Saints will be all fired up, we will too hopefully...
