When you write this stuff, do you say out loud in your head first?

Please eludicate your incomprehensibe dribble on people who think you actually have something worthwhile to say.
Ever since he was proven to be the terrible judge of talent that he is by Doedee and that certain first rounder who wasn’t even rookied his response has been lash out at our current talent ID and claim that they are sole reason that we haven’t won a flag in 20 years. He’s just a simple person.

So youre backing the team, I say our list isn't strong enough to win a flag, I guess only time will tell, with the outcome of this season, will it be like last season 12th or have we improved or declined

Such a strong team. The last three guys picked in my head are Knight, Gallucci, Jones - and they'll have people breathing down their necks all season, like Douglas for example!
Douglas will get a number of weeks, possibly all year, to find form. Same with Sauce.

Yup. A victim of us realising we'd completely ****** up with the lack of defensive pressure in our forward line.

He does seem like someone who'll need to leave Adelaide to have a career at this point in time.
Which highlights again how stupid we were for not trading Lynch while he had good currency.

Do you want to bet? You pick a finishing position that you’re comfortable with at evens. I know you only bet when you know you’ll win, ha ha.

He's what, 20/21 this year? Plenty of time to establish himself still, especially considering he was initially coming from a long way back.

If anything, he provides great small defender depth, as well as being able to play as a small forward. We haven't seen it yet, but if Laird or Brown were to go down, I'd much rather Murphy come into the side for them rather than bloody Mackay.

Champion Data have us with the 2nd best list.

We made a grand final 2 years ago with mostly the same squad.

We are very much challenging for a flag & you have set very low expectations to think otherwise.

I would be surprised if we don't finish top-4, assuming Burton has been kicked out from telling to fitness & conditioning staff what to do.

Why not just offer the odds of one of the betting agencies as usually in your favour any way...

Its more fun, as most would realise our squad isn't that strong, some don't though and you can sometimes convince them to take a bet that is so one sided its not funny, its called blind faith

He does have time, but really he's fighting against Brown/Laird in the defensive 50, and multiple options in the small forward position (McAdams, McHenry, Knight and Jones) who either have the pedigree, or actual performance on Murphy.

He's good depth, but a player who is good depth doesn't last long in the system. Well usually, I guess CEY is still clinging on.

Right now, it's very likely he'll need to move clubs. Now, it could change in a season, as things happen, but I wouldn't be hanging around long in his situation if it didn't this season.

No one thought Bulldogs would win in 2016 or Richmond in 2017. Or for us to make it in 2017. Or West Coast to win in 2018. If the last three years have show anything it has shown that anyone can win the premiership at any given time. We have much chance as the other 17 sides

They better not or there goes one of our prized first rounder.
They will win less than 6 games. More than likely around 3-4 games for the year. Thats being optimistic too.

Probably beat GCS at home and will snag a couple of games on top of that. Should be a top 2 pick.

not sure where to post so i thought this was as appropriate as I was gonna get


A group of us are heading to Adelaide for Round 1 v Hawks. There will be two Melbourne based Crow supporters and our Hawk supporting mate, plus whoever else decides to come to the game (on a side note our respective bands are playing at The Exeter that night after the game )

Just wondering when the tickets for Rnd 1 go on sale?
