Footy is back - AFL rnd 1

Its time!

 

I am passing on the tipping comp, but will partake in the banter.

 

It starts with an absolute ball cracker of a game!

 

Richmond vs Carlton.   Hard to pick a loser in this one.  I will go with the tigers to win.

 

Pressure to grow on buckley when the bulldogs beat them.

 

Saints / melbourne, one of the better matches.  Going to go for the saints at etihad.

 

Swans to thump port

 

Hawks to beat essendon

 

Suns and lions.   Who cares?  Suns and micky barlow to star.

 

Roos and west coast.  Experts say if west coast win this they will firm as flag favourites.  Really? Its north melbourne ffs.  If west xoast dont win this, theyre pretenders, not contenders.

 

Crows and giants.  Another potentially good game, but the afl will ensure a giants win.

 

And freo v geelong.  I think freo will be competitive and this game closer than expected, but the team needs 6 months or so to gel.  Looking for freo's game plan to develop throughout the season.  Geelong will be too polished this time around.

round 1 beware

Wed, 2017-03-22 18:30

Round 1 throws some surprises each year - and shows people have forgotten to look at facts.

 

eg... Adelaide at home has to be one of the fortresses... How is AFL doctoring this? GWS are lacking in the backs round 1, Adelaide GUN talls. And I love GWS and think they will win nearly every game, but Adelaide has to be a strong chance.

 

Same Geelong will be good, but Dockers to win at home (they usually do when they are half decent).

 

West Coast Kangas games nearly always go to home team... West Coast with no Nic Nat away should not be faves, even if North are down on last year.

 

Lions - new coach - usually improves performance a lot... but at Metricon Gold Coast

Essendon ??? who knows. Hawks probably

Collingwood few injuries  - happy to go the DogS

Swans solid

melbourne - which team turns up ... new coach... give them a chance, but Saints at Etihad for me.

richmond beat carlton round 1... that is how the season starts every year....

 

 

Oh and by the way... a multi of $1 on my tips yields $183.... hmmmm probably not going to happen

 I've gone Richmond, but with no confidence 

doggies to beat pies

demons over saints

swans over port

Gold Coast over brissy, but again with no confidence

Hawks over bombers

west coast over roos

crows over GWS 

freo over cats.

all may change once I've seen the teams.

Tue, 2017-03-21 18:45

We must now be favourites as the Vics are trying to derail our season just like they tried to disrail our shot at the flag in 2015.  *not an excuse for how shit we played that day

At least we now know how Richmond got Dustin Martin off the sleeping pills for good to help him sleep after a 'big night' on the gear he got from the old man. They just roll KB through the door and get him to wax lyrical and Dusty is out like a light in 2 minutes flat.

Even the anti West Coast Freo supporters are over it. That's saying something!

If the Vic media want to dig up stories from the past, how about they delve into the events around Hawthorn taking out an injunction to hide players names who tested positive to illicit drugs.

Wed, 2017-03-22 12:17

Probably focused on the Pies because they had two players banned for 2 years just the year before for snorting cocaine cut with a performance enhancing drug... or so the story went. At least they didn't try to blame their dog.

Wed, 2017-03-22 12:05

 I’m gobsmacked channel 7 decided to go with the 06 smudge , rather than Nic Nat climbing a tree and rescuing a cat ..

 
Weagles still flying high I think with Simmo touting premiership this year   .. Rossy pumping up dockers supporters saying we’re 4 yrs away .. Clarko praying every night that Omeara’s knees hold up .. Poor ole Bucks 5 yrs in the job and reckons he’ll bail if they don’t make the 8 .. ( bloody De Goey )
 
Going to be a few rounds before we see where they all are at .. hardest tip for me is the Dockers game regardless the Dangerfield vs Fyfe should be epic

Sun, 2017-03-26 15:05

West Coast brutal in front of goal and great to see Lecca return to his best throughout the pre season and into round 1. Jack Darling looks like a player completely devoid of confidence and was second to the ball all day long and even then he was inneffective in putting meaningful pressure on.

I don't know why Barras didn't play but I can only hope it's in the place of either Nelson or Emac next week.

Sheed for Redden and Duggan for Masten. Wellingham's disposal and general attitude was very lazy today and I am stunned that Josh Hill is still getting a game.

Yeo looks like he is set to put an indifferent 2016 behind him and was in beast mode all day.

I'm not usually one to admit when I'm wrong but in the case of me saying that Fremantle had stocked their list with B graders I am willing to take a hit. Definitely D grade at best with Hill being a C-

When he's not popping eccies, racking coke off alleyway garbage cans or punching out school teachers with his dacks down in a kebab shop he's actually quite an average footballer

 Bit disappointed, I thought we would present better than that. But, it's game 1 of a 4 year build apparently, so hopefully I don't die of a heart attack watching. And Ranmar, it's early days.

Sun, 2017-03-26 19:25

 but, y'know, just couldn't help it   They didn't look very organised, have the cattle, just couldn't get it together. Geelong , on the other hand, looked like they had a game plan,, and it worked.

 As a freo supporter, the footy is one thing, looking like they do with buns is ridiculous, sigh. Long year coming up. :(

Oh, and Randall, how's your tipping going?

Sun, 2017-03-26 19:33

 To quote from th opening post of this thread.

 

 

Richmond vs Carlton.   Hard to pick a loser in this one.  I will go with the tigers to win.

 

Pressure to grow on buckley when the bulldogs beat them.

 

Saints / melbourne, one of the better matches.  Going to go for the saints at etihad.

 

Swans to thump port

 

Hawks to beat essendon

 

Suns and lions.   Who cares?  Suns and micky barlow to star.

 

Roos and west coast.  Experts say if west coast win this they will firm as flag favourites.  Really? Its north melbourne ffs.  If west xoast dont win this, theyre pretenders, not contenders.


 

Crows and giants.  Another potentially good game, but the afl will ensure a giants win.

 

And freo v geelong.  I think freo will be competitive and this game closer than expected, but the team needs 6 months or so to gel.  Looking for freo's game plan to develop throughout the season.  Geelong will be too polished this time around.

 

well , you got three, and I don't know if I would have done any better

Sun, 2017-03-26 19:50

 Four.  West coast was my tip.  And yeah it was a crap tipping weekend.  Did anyone get nine from nine?

 

What we saw at domain was top 4 v bottom 4.  Its going to take freo time to gel.  Geelong were very very good 

 

 

Would have liked the margin to be less, but hey it is early days.  We will see a better freo in the back half of the season.

 

As for owen, lots of teams looming for him so you can stop with the owen jokes until round 3 at least.
