Liked: The ladder being a complete unpredicted shambles and North's effort this week.

Learnt: Saints have won 5 quarters for the year and somehow won 2 games, North has won 6 quarters for no result.

Hated: Umpiring and throwing, with some extra hate for the umpiring around throwing.

We've already been beaten twice, once at the g by a non Victorian team. That's what they said in 2018 too. It's a bit early

Liked: Melbourne, solid solid. Bulldogs impressive again.
Learnt: There is no such thing as home ground advantage, a wide open season and there are probably 6 or 7 teams that can contend for the flag.
Hated: St Kilda, yep destroyed again. They have a long way to go before they can be considered to be a contender.

Liked: Melbourne - Pickett making things happen, Rivers flying under the radar, Langdon off a wing, Brayshaw carving out a role on the halfback line.
Learnt: Port is a resilient side and they are also great to watch.
Hated: Carlton and St Kilda both seemed set to push up / further into the eight. Both still could, I guess, but it feels like it will end up a year of treading water.

Bulldogs are sitting on top? Or you don't call Treloar, Martin, Durye, Crozier, Keath and Bruce "topping up"?
Our core was definitely built through the draft and we still take our first in every year, the highest we gave up for any of those players listed was Keath which was a late 2nd rounder with an upgrade of 3rds coming back. So nah I wouldn’t call it topping up in the way that StKilda for example has done, just some smart trading to fill some gaps with the added bonus of a Collingwood shitshow to gift us Treloar

Liked: Current Melbourne based Clubs occupy 5 of the bottom 6 positions on the ladder. The Footscray, Port and Richmon wins

Learnt: Cats may be pretenders. Blues fans may be world's greatest optimists in the face of continuing disappointment.One of the Dons or the Pies will be 1 and 5 after ANZAC Day.

Hated: Injuries to heaps of players. The legalisation of throwing the ball. Muraliduran would love it.

Liked - Dockers having an away win at a previously challenging venue ( in context of course - everywhere for us Is challenging and Adelaide had some big outs 😊 ) but a win is a win

Learned - Adelaides new group look exciting. Great bounce back from last year and some good youth to work with

Hated - Eagles fans booing the prime minister ( embarrassing as a West Australian and hate their desire to Booo everything , they need a brain filter )
