    I don't think we do it as a luxury, more a necessity.

    The only problem is that against the best sides, the defence can get on top quickly and in these games we are seeing Robbie vanish, especially if our opponent is winning the midfield battle. So for mine we really need to be balancing out his fwd/mid time a LOT better.

    Last year Robbie played too many midfield minutes @ 90/10, this year he is playing too much fwd at probably 70/30. It should be far more 50/50.

    Same goes for Wingard. The balance we are using is wrong.

    So where is the cheap booze b4 the game?

    In before channel 7 report 'more shame for Port as supporters scourge the Internet forums looking for cheap alcohol to abundantly consume prior to attending Adelaide Oval to watch football, be racist, wear nazi shit, fight, sell stuff to China, be poor, ect'

    A lot of very confident people here. Think the last 2 years and our inability to win these games. Me personally, I'm nervous as hell.

    Hopefully this game is just like the Essendon game last year where we all worried about an unthinkable loss but all was good in the end.

    With Kreuzer out for Carlton our odds have dropped to $1.07. I liked us at the previous line of 32.5 but it's out to 44.5 now. I think it'll still be pretty greasy out there so I'm not so confident of the new line. Should've backed us yesterday.

    Perhaps they could make a Gibbs sandwich. Legally of course.

    If conditions suit, I think we'll win by 80 odd.

    Seriously? Still with the Gibbs thing? Damn you guys can hold a grudge.

    I reckon those two will kick a decent bag between them. I like our defence and the young guys in it, but I don't think they have the agility to go with Gray and Wingard, and they certainly don't have the experience. Docherty might be able to keep one relatively quiet but we play a floating defence for the most part and if your strong midfield gets the ball forward often and quickly, we'll get hammered by your small forwards.

    Hosking was the one Hartlett kicked the ball into
    Stephens was one of the good umps last year when we played Hawthorn at home
    Rosebury is an all round good bloke

    2 out of 3 aint bad

    Gibbs... pfft

    I have living relatives still smouldering with fury over the umpiring performance that cost us the 1934 grand final to the bays.

    And don't get me started on Scott Salisbury's cowardly assault on Greg Anderson in the 1986 finals.

    I wouldn't be too concerned about the banter as he will be the mob down the roads problem in a year or two.

    If we get the same umpiring as we did last 2 times we played Carlton, I think you should lock the gates at the AOL after the game and give them a beating

    Hopefully R.Gray spends the majority of the game in midfield. Let's allow our best player to be our best player
